Denying Blowback


Platforms can matter. It is deeply wrong for the Democrats’ presumed “party leaders” to continue their relentless drive to obliterate all traces of “the Bern” that has kindled progressive crowds for these past months. Pressing Sanders to fall in behind Clinton with weeks still to go before the official enthronement smells rankly of the “elections” held in totalitarian states. Dissent has been, and remains, not merely a prerogative but a positive sign of diversity and open-mindedness in a party. For those so inclined, it will be perfectly possible to cast an anti-Trump vote in November without necessarily echoing every inflated claim of progressive success that has been or will be made for the Democratic Leadership Council’s compromises.--BW

They can and should, but it won't happen this season.  The Democrats are too stuck-in-the-mud, with their own influence and narrowed and honed power on the line.

HC hasn't fooled anybody. She is a consummate pol but an utter tool. The elite don't care how she was complicit with the rise of ISIL.

Follow the dots and you end up in Orlando.
