Kos asks DNC to say no to Phoenix for #DNC2016

by: Oreo

Thu Jul 24, 2014 at 12:32:05 PM EDT


Markos Moulitsas recently announced that Daily Kos will not take part in Netroots Nation 2015 which will take place in Phoenix. He expands his call for Democrats to stay away from the city.

And then there's Phoenix, and unless Democrats want to stir up the same raw emotions and divisiveness that Netroots Nation did with their choice for that locale, it should be avoided like the plague.

With the exception of Birmingham, which is an odd addition to the list, the other four cities would unite our party and allow us to focus on the task at hand—retaining the White House, expanding our Senate majority and taking back the House. Let's focus on the places that unite us, not consider places that divide.

Markos seems to lean Philly. We'll see if he's right.

GO KOS!!! (0.00 / 0)
I was considering going to NN2015 right up until I saw it was in Phoenix. Arizona can have not one of my dollars. I agree with him on Phoenix for DNC2016, too. A boycott is a boycott.  

i kinda like birmingham, though. would be good to take it to the heart of a red state, (0.00 / 0)
saying, "maybe not this year, but the day is coming when every state in the union might vote Dem, so we are here to stake our claim!"

The same could be said for Phoenix, except they are so proactively hateful there, I don't see the point.
