One of David Horowitz’s many valuable projects is Discover the Networks: A Guide to the Political Left. It’s a big database on everything leftist: people, groups, issues, jihad, funders, politics, art and culture, and more. Yesterday I posted on Labor Secretary Thomas Perez and his stirring up of racial strife, and today I got an email from Discover the Networks with a link to its page on Thomas Perez, probably because he’s in the news. The page includes a long narrative of his history, including his many despicable radical actions. Here’s a very brief summary at the top of the page:
- Served in the Department of Justice (DOJ) during the Bill Clinton administration
- Was appointed by President Barack Obama to be Assistant Attorney General for the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division
- Greatly expanded DOJ’s prosecution of alleged hate crimes, which he depicts as a predominantly white-on-black phenomenon
- Views “disparate impact”—i.e., instances where particular policies affect whites and nonwhites unequally—as prima facie evidence of discrimination
- Depicts America as a nation rife with injustice against groups such as women, nonwhite minorities, and immigrants
- According to the American Spectator, “Perez has overseen most of the unprecedentedly naked politicization of DOJ’s Civil Rights Division.”
- Became U.S. Secretary of Labor in September 2013
There’s also a sidebar listing relevant articles and documents, such as Inspector General Report on Racialist Dysfunction Inside DOJ

Any time you want to know about some leftist individual or group, or who is funding them, you’ll find a wealth of information at Discover the Networks.
