Statement on Danny Fetonte


South Florida Democratic Socialists of America, August 7, 2017;

The South Florida DSA delegation to #DSACon17 have issued a statement regarding #DSA NPC member Danny Fetonte Democratic Socialists of America.[2]

On August 6th 2017 the roster of the new DSA National Political Committee for the next two years was announced. It has since come to our attention (click here) that a newly elected member of the NPC, Danny Fetonte has worked as an field representative for CLEAT (Combined Law Enforcement Association of Texas), a police union. Regrettably, he made no effort prior to his election to disclose this to the membership or disavow his work in this capacity, thus subverting the democratic process.
Police unions have long functioned as organs that help law enforcement to systematically violate the rights of others (particularly the poor, people of color, LGBTQ+, immigrants, sex workers, organized workers, and workers trying to organize). They have been instrumental in advocating for “Officer Bill of Rights” legislation which specifically places police officers above the law, and allows them to kill, injure, jail, and terrorize us with impunity. DSA as an organization has resolved to stand against this type of state oppression in service of capital, which regularly destroys lives in our communities and has impacted many comrades within DSA itself.
We cannot in good conscience claim to be a truly socialist organization if we allow ourselves to be lead by an individual who has neither been transparent nor remorseful about his role in this work. We the undersigned are left with no recourse but to unequivocally demand that he resign or be removed from the NPC effective immediately. We cannot consider ourselves comrades with police collaborators.
In Resolute Solidarity,
