Socialist Org Backs Alleged Plagiarist In Durham DA Race

Durham DA candidate was accused of plagiarism on her campaign website. She denies it but is removing the text in question.

But that’s not even the fun part about this race. Keep reading.

Here’s the story on the alleged plagiarism:

A candidate for Durham County district attorney is updating her campaign website following accusations of plagiarism.

“In pulling together my website, I borrowed heavily from the platform of Larry Krasner in Philadelphia,” Satana Deberry wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. “I have publicly acknowledged Krasner’s influence on my platform whenever I speak about reform of the criminal justice system in Durham.”

Deberry, executive director of the N.C. Housing Coalition, is challenging incumbent District Attorney Roger Echols in the May 8 Democratic primary. Durham attorney Daniel Meier is also running. (Durham Herald Sun)

Echols is the DA who dropped the charges for 8 of the Communists who destroyed a public monument in Durham. (More on the that story HERE and HERE.)

Fun times ahead in Durham. Echols is being challenged for his position and his opponent has garnered the socialist vote.

Durham Herald  Sun’s headline: Durham People’s Alliance endorsements hold some surprises. What are they?


The People’s Alliance political action committee voted Thursday night to back a political newcomer in the Durham County district attorney’s race and a previous challenger in the sheriff’s race.

On Thursday night the PA membership voted to endorse Satana Deberry over incumbent Roger Echols in the district attorney’s race. The membership also voted to endorse Clarence Birkhead over incumbent Mike Andrews in the sheriff’s race.

There are no actual surprises in their endorsements or the article.

What is a surprise is that a socialist organization’s predictable progressive endorsements are being touted as actual news.

Another surprise is that the article doesn’t even mention Durham People’s Alliance is a socialist flavored organization endorsed by the Freedom Road Socialist Organization and that it has Marxist-Leninist roots.

Or that it’s 2014 board included Durham Council Member at Large, Charlie Reece. He was also endorsed by Durham People’s Alliance.

Durham People’s Alliance also allegedly has an education arm. Leading that arm is Sendolo Diaminah, a known socialist.

Diaminah is the Durham School Board member who resigned because actually serving the people was taking too much time away from his Black Lives Matter activism.

Durham People’s Alliance also endorsed a candidate to fill a Durham City Council seat.

Guess who was picked to fill the vacancy? In the past, Durham People’s Alliance has also endorsed current Durham councilwoman, Jillian Johnson.
