Corey Shearer, who claims to be an organizer with the Democratic Party, needs a lesson in politics.
Shearer attacked Broward Teachers Union President Anna Fusco over the weekend on Facebook.
Attempting to discourage a black candidate from challenging School Board member Nora Rupert.
“Stop trying to correct black folk. Check yourself,” Shearer wrote on Facebook.
What political universe have you been living in, Shearer? This has nothing to do with black and white. This has to do with politics.
Politics is something you claim to know about, Shearer, as a Broward Democratic activist with the Broward County Democratic Black Caucus.
Fusco, who I have never met nor talked to, is apparently politically smart. She was attempting to dissuade an opponent from running against Rupert, who the BTU likes.
Rupert spent the better part of two terms supporting the BTU and teachers.
Should somebody challenge Rupert without Fusco speaking up? Is Shearer claiming that a candidate is immune from criticism when he is black?
I think not.
Is this another case Broward’s Democratic activists’ purposeless feuding among themselves?
Is this another example Democrats encouraging challenges to successful incumbents like Rupert? Rupert received the highest vote total of any of the five School Board members in 2014.
Is Shearer’s attack another demonstration of Democrats eating their own?
