Yes, I suppose you are then.
So, with the announcement of Sanders' presidential run, I guess that moving forward we can look forward to the edifying spectacle of the American left eating itself in increasingly unhinged rounds of backbiting and toxic identity politics.... Woohoo
not because of him, no. he tends to talk economic talk.
I didn't say it was because of him. What i meant was that now he's in the race, all the backbiting, fingerpointing and IDPOL toxicity that hung around the 2016 dem pres primary campaign like a miasma will be making a comeback.
Peter Daou says he and his HRC crew are going to play nice this time round, if that's any help ?
Not really. It's going to happen. Whether by genuine IDPOL types or platoons of Russian/US Rightwinger trolls/bots using the same language and angles of attack.
kinda hard to know what you are trying to say here tbh
edit : apols, have seen yr follow up
Can't be arsed to speculate about the Democratic party candidates more than a year before primary season even begins. Will wait until the pack is whittled down. Lots can happen in the months to come. I hope the focus is on policies and not personalities though, or the US will never get out of the shit it's in.
This come up yet? Seems a pretty big deal. Wanted to do an Anders Brevik with bells on, and seemed to be amassing enough hardware to make a fist of it.
Coast Guard, White supremacy officer planned terror attack
I'm so old, I can remember the days when a story like this would have made the headlines and been the top feature on the evening news. Now it's just a, "Meh."
AOC mauled by neighbourhood dog
AOC is an Alan Moore fan
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez becomes comic-book heroine
Not directly connected to the thread topic but I didn't think it was necessarily deserving of it's own thread so I did a search and found her name mentioned in this one:
The Democratic Party Attacks on Ilhan Omar Are a Travesty
Shovelling billions to the Pentagon, the largest anti-communist fighting organisation in history
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joins House Democrats in vote for Trump war budget
The German invasion of the ussr saw 3.8m belligerents invade the Soviet Union which is more than the US have deployed against communists at any one time
That's a pretty disingenuous headline, no? The House Democrats (mostly) voted to approve the entire Federal budget.
So "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joins House Democrats in vote to continue the Medicaid Reimbursements and Title X entitlements that allow Planned Parenthood to continue operations" is another headline they could have picked.
From the worlds shittest website.
Beeley boosting loons. Countless false flaaaag articles.
DSA becoming entryists
Democratic Socialists look to take over New York's powerful labor unions
82-year-old House Democrat asks 'The Squad' if he can join
This is quite fun
After the onion ran a spoof article about the old bloke being the newest member of the squad .
The congressman tweeted aoc asking to join
Aocs response was your in
8chan would like an aplogy
So Baby eating is back in fashion.
v weird La Rouche - ist sh*t this .... wasn't much AoC could do.
to then see Trump gloating about it, as if the troll wasn't an obvious troll was predictably unhinged, but still depressing / alarming
I want one of those t-shirts though.
AoC going to be the big surprise guest @ " Bernie's Back' rally on sat, + squad about to endorse ?
Not sure how much difference it'll make tbh, feels like it's Warrens to lose at this stage ( even favourite, Biden 7-2, Bern in to 10-1 from 16-1 )
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to endorse Bernie Sanders for president
Greyzone is joins it in the number one position.
She is such a legend.
ha ha .... fire
I totally fancy her.
When she's running for President in three or four election cycles time - that's gonna feel a bit weird. (She's not eligible until 2024, I think)
