DEM INTRAPARTY FIGHT


Shri Thanedar

Political party division – sometimes leading to physical scuffles – is no longer the exclusive domain of the GOP in Michigan, thanks to rising storm clouds in the Democratic Party over the Israel/Hamas war. Here’s the skinny. A pre-Christmas gathering, held just ahead of the holiday by the 13th Congressional District Democrats at the Common Pub on Cass Avenue in Detroit,  drew about 200 party members including some elected officials. A couple dozen protestors who were members of the Palestinian Youth Movement and the Party for Socialism and Liberation – who we’re told were not invited guests – also showed up at the celebration. When US. House member Shri Thanedar (D- Detroit) started to speak at the event, the pro-Palestinian protestors began chanting to confront the congressman about his pro-Israel support of late. When there was an attempt to remove the pro-Palestinian crowd members, a fight broke out, sending one Democrat activist (Bobbie Johnson) to the hospital with two black eyes.
