Saudi-Trump-corporate US Democrat bloodbath of Yemen’s civilians


This 16 June 2017 video from the USA says about itself:

Five Democrats Vote To Fund The Saudis’ Yemen Brutality

TYT Politics Producer Emma Vigeland did a YouTube Live report on the 53-47 vote in favor of a sale of weaponry to Saudi Arabia, which is currently bombing and blocking supplies to Yemen. Five Democrats voted in favor of the sale: Democratic Sens. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Bill Nelson (Fla.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Mark Warner (Va.)

  9. Democratic Party leaders announced this week that they plan to fund anti-choice candidates in 2018)1 — a desperate and short-sighted attempt to appeal to Trump voters.

    This is a losing strategy, plain and simple.

    Women make up the core of the Democratic voter base — women of color, especially, voted overwhelmingly Democratic in 2016. Funding candidates who do not support the right to abortion is an affront to basic human rights and the Democrats’ most loyal voters.

    Candidate recruitment is happening across the country right now — we need to fight back before ballots are full of anti-choice Democrats.

    The right to choose is not up for debate. Chip in $5 to UltraViolet PAC to demand that the Democratic Party reject any candidates who do not support a woman’s right to abortion.

    At a time when women’s reproductive rights are under assault by Trump and Republicans in states across the country, Democrats should be doubling down on their commitment to choice, not abandoning it.

    Conservative states emboldened by Trump’s presidency are going to town passing anti-abortion laws that make it next to impossible for women to get an abortion.2 State legislators in Ohio, Iowa, South Dakota and Montana recently passed measures that ban abortions after 20 weeks. And Missouri passed a bill that would allow the state to prosecute women for violating abortion laws.

    Not only is it the right thing for Democrats to stand up to this anti-choice rampage, it’s politically smart. Seven in ten Americans support a woman’s right to choose and women, especially women of color, are one of the Democratic Party’s most critical voting blocs. In the last election, Black women voted at the highest rate of any group of voters — and 94% voted for Hillary Clinton.3

    UltraViolet members are mobilizing to make it clear to the Democratic Party what is at stake for women if Democrats abandon their values and elect anti-choice candidates. With your help, we can ensure they hear our voices, loud and clear.

    Chip in $5 to UltraViolet PAC to tell the Democratic Party to stop funding anti-woman candidates who do not believe in abortion.

    Thank you for taking action today.
