One doesn’t often hear about the College Democrats of America (CDA) unless they’re protesting some alleged microaggression on campus, but apparently the organization is in disarray.
The organization is “in turmoil,” according to Politico, which reported that the “group’s leaders are publicly firing off accusations of anti-Blackness, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism at each other” largely based on things they tweeted when they were younger teens – years before college.
“Impeachment proceedings are now in the works against the organization’s new vice president, Nourhan Mesbah, who is Muslim.
College Democrats say that screenshots of tweets that their peers sent in adolescence spread rapidly through group texts, which already caused a student running for president of the group to withdraw their candidacy in September. And national advocacy groups for Muslim and Jewish Americans are now weighing in with criticism,” Politico continued.
