Tom Perez, Chairman of the National Democracy Committee, accused Fox News Sunday of having republican concerns about the recent election of reputable Socialists in Congress, as well as the support of prominent Democrats for a broad-based green new deal and Medicare-for-everything – a bit more than a reputable Republican "trick" that distracts from issues that bother "real people."
President Trump repeatedly ridiculed socialism in recent weeks against the background of the current collapse of the economy and government of Venezuela, and promised that America would "never" become a socialist country. But Perez suggested that Trump had more in common with socialist dictators than he would have liked to admit.
"This is one of the oldest tricks in Chris," said Perez, deputy Chris Wallace. "You return 75 years ago, when Republicans do not want to discuss matters that matter to real people, they call it socialism. Social security, when it was discussed ̵
Although the Reagan forecast may ultimately To be precise, Perez suggested that it might still be too far for Democratic presidential candidates Kamal Harris. and Elizabeth Warren openly support the remittance-paid by the taxpayer for slavery – politically unpopular, against which was former President Barack Obama.
"Civil rights are America's unfinished business," Perez said, refusing to approve reparations. "This is what will be discussed during the presidential nomination process."
Then he appealed to continue his thoughts on socialism: "All the interesting thing about the continuation of the use of the word" socialism "is that the repressive socialist regimes, two of their most frequent qualities – No. 1, they follow the press, they are trying blow up the press, – said Perez Wallace.
"And No. 2, they – they have endemic corruption," continued Perez. "And I find it very ironic when you hear this president using the" socialist "all the time, I mean he, [Vladimir] Putin, Kim [Jong Un] Castro – that they all have a common thing that they did so much You are not they must attack the press in the way the president does.It is unprecedented. "

Inspired by Wallace, did he compare Trump with killer dictators , Perez said he was not – but the Republicans are at risk of repeating the mid-term election In 2018, when the Democrats returned the majority in the House of Representatives, if they continue to support Trump's rhetoric.
"I just say that authoritarian socialist regimes blow up media is wrong," replied Perez. "You should not do this, the period – should not go after the press, period, no notes, no exceptions. Authoritarian socialist regimes have endemic corruption that you must understand; we, the Democrats, won little in the culture in 2018
Perez separately denied that Democrats have their own media problem, following the allegedly fake report on hate crimes made by the actor Jussie Smollett Prominent Democrats, including presidential candidates Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, expressed their uncritical support to Smollett a few days after he said that Trump's supporters had been attacked – it was only inconvenient to return the course when the Chicken police accused Smollet of paying two Nigerian brothers an attack, to help his car.
"If the statements that came out in recent days are true, then it's unfair, because hate crimes – the fact of this matter – are rising," said Perez. "And when you – when you create an erroneous situation, you are doing injustice towards all people who have been victims."
FBI statistics indicate an increase in reported hate crimes over recent years, but the agency also noted that more law enforcement officials began to provide FBI with data on hate crimes in recent years – that is, it is unclear whether the actual incidence of hate crimes is really is growing.
Perez insisted that "we acted on the facts as we knew on" "and repeated that" hate crimes are on the rise "without providing evidence.
Wallace also asked Peres about a particular problem that was brewing in Virginia, where the highest republican spokesman announced that the state's judiciary committee would request two women, accusing the Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual violence to testify when the legislature will return in April.
– Perez said, "I was unambiguous in ensuring that so that when investigations into such statements are made. I do not think that the delegates of Virginia and the Senate are the right place to investigate this matter. We have to conduct an independent investigation that should be And this is what should happen.
Perez repeated his call to Ralph Northham, the Democratic Governor, to step aside, saying that "his ability to govern was undermined." A picture of a yearly medical school on Northam's page showed one person on a black surface, and the other in CCC clothes, which prompted Northam to apologize – although Northam departed from his initial confirmation that he appeared personally in the photo.

As to whether Fox News will be invited to hold one of the 12 future Democratic Party's initial debates, Perez refused – but suggested that this would be possible.
"We did not make this decision. We made a decision on the first two debates," said Perez. And what we do in the first two debates, Chris, is unprecedented, two nights, making sure we have a chance draw. .. "
" Do you know that it would also be unprecedented? "Wallace asked. "Let us have a debate."
"Well, that's right, we'll see it," replied Perez.
