At the meeting, the only "lively" moment was a vote on whether to have an internet forum for the chapter. The discussion illuminated internal DSA politics in a weird way.
Step back from the day-to-day soap opera: Sanders will be the nom with the popular vote. Or, Bloomberg will be given the nom at the convention, and then the democratic party must be destroyed.
Democrats only know how to campaign by telling on the mean kids to the recess teacher, because they learned nothing from 2016.
In this post, I'll break down the shitshow that was the Iowa Caucus. Then, I'll transition to the New Hampshire primary, which is today. This primary cycle is on track to be an absolute repugnant display of """democracy""", and it needs to be unpacked thoroughly.
Liberals oppose Sanders' worldview regarding racism. However, they lack an alternative worldview to fill in the void left if his explanation is wrong. Because of this, they lapse into right-wing conceptions of racism. I use a thread from twitter pundit David Atkins to make this point.
Liz Warrens new fake new law reads message board moderating on a national scale.
The fact that Bernie Sanders supporters are firm in their support and don't change their support on a whim makes democrats think it's a cult, but really, it's just mass support of a worldview that only one candidate comes near.
The "cult of personality" accusation is pure projection from democrats who actually do support people based on personality.
