Wikileaks has released a treasure trove of emails from the DNC, many of them showing a willful sabotaging of the Bernie Sanders campaign by top DNC officials. One of the most abhorrent of these is an email from DNC CFO Brad Marshall in which he suggests to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda, CEO Amy Dacey, and Deputy Communications Director Mark Paustenbach that they should focus on Bernie Sanders’s apparent atheism to generate some distrust over more conservative Southern Baptist Democratic voters.

It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.
So essentially what we have here is a top official of one of the two main political parties encouraging mistrust, hatred, and bigotry against a group of Americans because of their religious beliefs (or lack thereof).
Am I the only one who sees a problem with this?
The DNC loves to point out Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric at every opportunity, but have no qualms about capitalizing on essentially the same kind of fear and bigotry when it suits their purposes.
Please share this post far and wide. This despicable piece of trash Brad Marshall should not be allowed to bash atheists and get away with it. In a response email DNC CEO Amy Dacey responds with “Amen.” She needs to answer for that too.
It’s time for anti-atheist bigot Brad Marshall to resign.
