DFL Central Committee Insults its Base: Catholic Progressives behind Loaves & Fishes and the Homeless Shelters

The DFL Central Committee, it's governing body, most probably composed of the most radical of the DFL activists (I actually heard at one convention one candidate being asked, "What is your position on abortion and how radical are you?") has sent out a postcard to prospective voters, with this photo of a Catholic priest wearing a campaign button saying: "Ignore the Poor."

I don’t know how many were sent out, but this was received by a Catholic in the Twin Cities. It shows the willful ignorance of Democrats by ignoring what Catholic Charities, the many thousands of Catholic parishes with social justice ministries, especially parishes like St. Joan’s, Cabrini, Christ the King, St Edward's, Pax Christi, St. Stanislaus, some of the most active of Catholic progresssives in the entire country, and the Catholic school system, pre-K to grad schools, and what they have done and continue to do for poor people in this country.

Is this intended to bring out the Catholic progressive vote? Or those who hate Catholics?
