That would be Bernie Sanders except that he never was, is not now, and never will be a Democrat. We’re used to this kind of thing out of Bern; it’s what he does. It’s Elizabeth Warren. He’s drooled over the prospect of running against her and she is not helping. “TX-28, we’re gonna get this done,” she shrilly shouted on stage.
Here is a riddle to solve if you can, sing the bells of Notre Dame. Who is a traitor and who is a Dem?
What caused Warren to break with our ranks? Who knows why she would do such a thing? Perhaps it’s a tumor, or something infectious. Like a socialist brain disease. Otherwise, why else would she go crazy and start endorsing enemies who have sworn to destroy all semblance of sanity in the Party? That 2% wealth tax is going to get us killed.
I’m not happy to be writing this article. Not at all. I hadn’t planned to have to agree with the staff over at Breitbart News about anything, ever, let alone this week. I have never considered Warren an outright enemy, even though she’s got a whole grocery list of plans even nuttier than Bernie’s (if such a thing is even possible). At least unlike Bernie, she can explain theoretically why they might work. Also, we could use a good vice for Joe Biden and I thought she could help to weld the rift in the Party Bernie the non-Democrat tore.
Unless, of course, she makes a habit out of trucking with the enemy.
We’re not going to play games about this, Warren. If you cast your lot with these people, we will fight you with uncompromising persistence. You’ll remember that word, I’m sure. On another subject- Are you nuts? That brat is not worth the laundry of Henry Cuellar, who is a moderate Democrat and therefore our friend. We don’t need any more of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; she is the most annoying person in the world and like Cuellar’s opponent completely unqualified.
Warren must know this too; she’s a calculating person underneath all the wacky plans. She used to be a Republican; her best friend in those days was a woman named Katrina Harry. “Liz was a diehard conservative,” Harry told Politico in a recent interview.
It is our opinion that a leopard can never change its spots.
Utility consumer advocate Barbara Alexander was shown an old essay of Warren’s and was disgusted, making a comment which applies to pretty much everything she does.
“She simplistically makes conclusions without any analysis of actual facts, just economic theory.”
Just what we need, Liz, another crazy to give Trump the only possible plan that he might win with.
Way to go.
She’s doing this because she believes it is politically expedient- and what more proof could you ask for that she doesn’t belong in the White House? This is a complete disgrace.
The Justice Democrats grew out of the cancerous petri dish that was the remnants of Bernie Sanders’s 2016 campaign. They have given a boost to Trump at every turn. Their numbers are chosen from two groups of people; the ‘Hold your nose to the polls’ type and the Vote for Jill Stein type. They either did or did not understand how badly they were hurting Hillary Clinton’s chances back then, which means they’re either stupid or evil.
Let us make no bones about it. The more Warren enters the socialist, Justice Democrat fold, the harder we will fight her.
They have not changed their ways; these days they’ve got a different tack. They find the most radical and silly people and use them to sniper out good Democrats. Then they make Trojan Horses out of them, infecting the Party.
Then we have to spend months or years mopping up the slop.
Trump is running against AOC and Ilhan Omar. He doesn’t want to fight Nancy Pelosi or us, her people; we’re too strong by far. So he won’t tangle with us. He’ll plan an end-run right around us into the touchdown zone that is the American fence-rider’s keys to the presidency. And as of Monday, he’s got Elizabeth Warren out there running interference for him.
Aren’t economics people supposed to be smart? What about professors at Harvard? They seem to be as smart or not smart as the rest of us. I guess there’s not much else to be expected out of someone who lied about her ethnicity (she’d spent years claiming she was a Native American, as white hipsters are known to do) when applying to Harvard in the first place and then later allowed themselves to be used as a poster boy for ethnic diversity among their staff. She even went so far as to get a DNA test done- it showed evidence she might have had a Native ancestor in her family, six generations ago. Lol.
I mean, literally. They put her picture on a poster. I feel silly even thinking about it.
Now Elizabeth Warren is throwing him a helping hand. Unbelievable.
As a side note, this isn’t being written for Joe Biden. Although we do choose to endorse him (mostly because he can say no to these people), this has very little to do with him per se. This is the same fight as always, sane liberal centrists against fake left socialist crazies. We have been here before, many times. This is being written for the sanity of the human race! There’s no way to overstate the case.
We have never attacked Warren before, though; we still feel she would make a good vice president if she turns back from this horrid course right away. If she does not, then we feel it fair to inform everyone we will give her the same treatment as the Bern.
#NeverBernie (check us out on Facebook)is a stance we’ve taken for many other reasons than the unpleasant characteristics of the Bern himself. Even the fact of his campaign’s Russian infestation, worse than Trump’s, is not the biggest reason. It’s because of the socialist plague that gave us both the Nazis and the Soviets, who in the end were nothing more than rival sects of socialists. Nothing in the world, no candidate or Party or anything else, is worth letting yourself become the vector of plague.
Speaking of Bern, here is a video of him, shirtless and drunkenly howling out Woody Guthrie’s ‘This Land is Your Land’ while vacation honeymooning in the Soviet Union.
You can’t make this kind of thing up, man. Shakespeare couldn’t have done it, let alone me.
We’ve obviously endorsed Cuellar. Millennial Democrats are Democrats fire and foremost. We understand loyalty, we love the Party with all our hearts, and we will do anything for it- especially when it comes time to fill the trenches to oppose the crazy socialists. Cuellar has said the same, so there you have it. Do anything you can to help him win, folks. He’s our guy.
The Justice Democrats, on the contrary, are complete and total enemies. The people who run it are the very definition. Remember We Will Replace You? The org they started to hold our feet to the fire with so-called progressive ‘litmus tests’? Or the Brand New Congress, when they wanted to get rid of EVERY professional in either legislative branch who refused what amounted to a loyalty oath to the Bernfuhrer framed up like a questionnaire?
These rank among the stupidest ideas ever conceived of in politics or anywhere, and Elizabeth Warren’s new friends were the ones who came up with it all. The latter two are not around anymore; they’ve been absorbed into the ranks of the Justice Democrats. The Democratic Socialists of America are brought to you by the very same clan as well. They’re as enemy as it gets. This is not going to fly, Senator Warren. Not even a little.
We don’t forget that you were their first choice to hamstring us in 2016; remember Run Warren Run, folks? They didn’t even look at Bernie until they had tried for six entire months to coax her into doing it instead. She didn’t bite, knowing it would have cost her every friend she ever had. It’s clear now that today is very different.
Elizabeth Warren, mark carefully these words. You will not be forgiven for this unless you reverse your conduct at once. You could still be of great use, but that will not survive the race in Texas- which thankfully hasn’t happened yet. You still have time; therefore use it. Going forward we’ll be keeping a close eye on you.
Time marches on, folks. Political landscapes dissolve and reform as new systems with new rules. Objectivity must by necessity govern strategy. Each position must be considered its own reality, weighed care
And with that I will inform you that I’m ready now to shift Our strategy to something reflective of common sense. The for-profit big money calling three front runners and awarding Chief Liz the non-Native and Bern equal status ludicrously with the one man who might win. We like all the rest, except for Tulsi G, and GOD, was it nice to see Gillibrand go! We remember Al Franken, you traitorous crow. Go jockey for influence somewhere below where throat-cutting your friends is a good thing to do. We’re nothing but glad to see no more of you.
It’s time for us with boots on to jump into the fray and land with a stomp with no further delay. So we’re Ridin with Biden at once and for all. He is by far the best of those who heard the call. It’s undoubtedly true that he’s no HRC. He’s also no Trump; that’ll do it for me. The country is weary, and so I will fight. I will fight and I’ll fight with all of my damn might, for Biden and all those resisting the night! I will refuse to quit until we see the light! I decided to declare today using verse so the world will take notice of all we rehearse.
We’re Americans, by God! Take note of our opinions, world; they are taking note of you.
Would be President Biden,
In the name of good sense, man! Please listen to me!
I know where I’m going! We’ve somewhere to be!
Let me speak for Joe Biden! Let me talk to them!
I’m one of these people!
They’re mostly my friends!
They will welcome the sound of my voice.
And I know, For the Bible tells me so!
I will speak for these people, for God only knows
Their voices are not being heard by all those
Who live in golf kingdoms and Ivory Towers
And watch us like beasts in their leisurely hours
Serene in their money, through bulletproof glass!
But it can’t keep the truth out! Now hear our forecast!
I’ll tell, if you’ll listen, the way that it is.
The people are feeling cut loose and adrift.
The people need life that makes sense and a plan.
We are starving for knowledge, and most of all, man
The people need language that we understand!
The people are hurting. The people are tired!
We’re bewildered and mad because we’ve been lied to!
We’re insisting today that you tell us the truth!
The American people are proudest on Earth!
We’ll be damned before demagogues play us like dupes!
Let me be the first, sir, to tell you aright
We don’t mean to waltz gently into that good night!
We the People are getting fed up, sir! We’ll fight!
We will kick down the doors of those hiding the light!
Let me talk to the people. They’ll listen to me.
Their struggles and dreams are the same ones I see.
We love this dear country with all that we are,
And we’re sick in our hearts at what’s happening to her!
The people need someone with stomach and heart
Who will be there for us when life’s looking most dark.
We’ve only got one first rank option, and so
We chose a good man with the good sense to know
That we’re willing and able and raring to go!
We are Ridin with Biden, millennials we.
All of us have been ready. So with no delay
It’s my duty to tell you, dear sir, that today
All us people are waiting to hear what you’ll say.
Attention, all Democrats and anyone else who likes to think of themselves as good Americans. The 2020 presidential election is in peril already, and not by the usual suspects; or, at least. We now have every reason, both in terms of good sound common sense and in terms of evidence, to state categorically that China has been making large-scale and highly threatening moves toward taking over the job of hacking our democracy into the ground from Russia.
Needless to say, the news is dire. These guys are ten times as strong as the Russians. Smarter, more disciplined, more subtle. Please, folks. Look through this carefully and then go raise awareness. We’re on our own out here, against the worst of the worst. This guy Xi Jinping, prime minister of the People’s Republic of China (who locked up a million Muslim without cause last year), has called Putin his “best, most dearest friend”, but actually, he’s pretty much made him into a butler. We hardly need to revisit how often we’ve received a sniveling display of Trump’s pathetic need to suck up to them both.
The Chinese, doing the dirty digital work for the Russians. Makes sense, plenty of supporting evidence, Chinese hackers everywhere. It all fits, except for one thing:
What is China going to get out of the deal?
Tough question to be sure, and no certain answers, but just the same. Maybe we can take a shot at this one, too. Follow the money, you all know the game by now.
The Nikkei Asian Review gives us a major clue into the state of all this wheeling and dealing, and it’s consistent with the pattern we’ve been seeing. Russia and China are doing a lot of business but it’s not really good for Russia, which is trading its oil- the lifeblood of the country and the source of Putin’s personal fortune- away at a real steal for China.
“China is now the largest overseas market for Russian oil, gobbling up a quarter of all her northern neighbor’s oil exports.” -Yohei Ishikada, Nikkei Asian Review.
That’s what China’s getting out of the deal to prop Putin up like Hitler did Mussolini. Cheap oil. What a surprising motivator, in today’s world. How is it going for these two old bosom friends? They hardly seem to know themselves.
His partner Putin can strut around like Trump is doing now (oh, and so much for white supremacy, you two bastions of Occidental pride. Way to make us look real slick. This man you’d probably refer to as a celestial is taking you both for a ride, not to mention the rest of us. God, way to go, you pair of sloppy jokers. Jesus.), doing his best Foghorn Leghorn impersonation, telling everyone loudly and repetitively that both men are, in fact, roosters. I guess we’ll have to give them that much, at least, even if they are only a banty and a tom in ill health.
Meanwhile, Xi waltzes off with the world hegemony, laughing all the way to his new personal bank- the nation of Switzerland. It’s possible that the Chinese have bought out the Russian interest in all this altogether. History will know, one day.
This has now breached the level of a conspiracy theory. We’ve been waiting for this ever since they began trying to hack us, more than a year ago. America, I am begging you all for help, this is about us all. Raising awareness is always the goal, but this time it’s more critical than ever before since I’ve been writing. Produce original content every way you can. Posts, memes, articles, whatever you can think up. It’s all for the sake of catching eyes and winning hearts for good!
Returning to our unbelievably important topic, it will not be Russia but China who will do Trump’s campaign work this time. China has already been the main offender of hacking, both around here and around the nation and the western world for more than a year. They are also giving off nationalism in waves, like the spray of a skunk. An inherent contempt of the American progressive (a real progressive, not a fake Bernie Bot neoprog) permeates their policy toward us.
Think of their racist slogan for us, ‘baizuo’ (white left). Real nice. They have no respect for us at all and think none of us will know enough to think to look for them. Power grid hacks like we’ve been exchanging with the Russians, theft, and disinformation. Recent-and mammoth- leveling up of sheer numbers of attempts.
With thousands of hours of research on this topic under my belt and over a thousand pieces of photo/email evidence indicating in this direction, it finally dawned on me. They’re cooking something big up this time, and it seems to be working.
Trump’s recent decision not to approve funding for the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) indicates that he’s on board. Probably this is a Russian-hatched plot, but strongly augmented by an unfathomable amount of Chinese muscle who’s been coming in and pulling the triggers. I have had a Russian try and hack me once in this whole entire year and even he seemed like a honey trap. Look how clumsy he was.
It will not be the Russians spearheading the main branch of the effort as they no longer possess the element of surprise although my guess is that strategical guidance will continue to come from the Kremlin, Putin is always the creative one. He’s just making rock soup, is all, same as George Patton, taking it as it comes like the blackjack player he is.
On some levels Putin appears to have hit the jackpot again, even though it’s showing signs of getting out of control on him. He found a rich resource, in manpower one hundred percent of the riches because China has so many people, and he’s got an angle that no one would ever see unless they happened to stumble across it as I did. The Chinese have been the primary culprits for more than a year now, I have kept records and made many copies to place with friends-in case. Who knows what they would do, we hardly even know what they are after. When they first attacked me I was totally befuddled. It didn’t really seem to be their fight; after all, I’d never written a word about them.
It’s only once you look at the financial sector, which naturally includes hacking and energy, that it becomes obvious why Xi got interested in this. And now here we are, on the verge of their being our new Public Enemy #1.
“The wider energy sector has found itself front and center in the hybrid cyber warfare campaign that has extended the battlefield. In recent months, Russia has been the archvillain of those campaigns. But China plies its hacking trade widely, and so this latest disclosure comes as little surprise.
Well, knowing is half the battle, at any rate. Man, oh, man, where is GI Joe when you need him? I guess he’s hanging out with Joe DiMaggio someplace listening to Simon and Garfunkel (just please, no Bridge over Troubled Waters; thanks a whole lot, crazy Bernie or Busters, for spoiling that song for me for life.)
See, this right here is the thing. They’re the ones planning it all out, they got the best of us before, and they seem fully aware that our intelligence communities have not put this together all the way yet.
That means we’re on our own, Democrats. Tell everyone you know, show them this article. We have less than five hundred days to save the country. We have got some work to do. We have some really good opponents to catch up to; good thing they’re Communists or they might actually win.
The only way we can catch up is through diligent training and education, and we had better start now. We have to adapt the cadre training model into something a free thinker can use without turning his stomach. We have to learn technology, finance, law, political strategy, and history.
And we have to know them well! Better than the opposition does. We are currently up against the three most powerful men on Earth according to Forbes Magazine, and they will certainly have some competent personnel lying around who can give us a very tough fight as we currently are. We must improve! The cause demands it. That is what they do; that is what we need to do.
That last, by the way, learning history, is a lot more than being able to sound good at a bar or display a pretentious wordiness. It’s the most critical step in all this to a member of a cadre who is there to fight and win, because it provides the basis of a foundational understanding to all the rest, plus every other major science. The Romans would have called it a sine qua non, an indispensable condition, and they would have been one hundred percent correct.
In the last analysis, as a takeaway from this voluminous article, the British publication The Economist points out another insight that might prove key at some point later on. At one point writing this article, I decided to do a Google search for “what does China really want from Russia?”
As I mentioned earlier. Cheap oil.
Oil is all Putin has, and all he’s getting back for it is Xi’s help backing his play. It now becomes obvious that Xi needs Putin far less than Putin needs Xi (neither needs Trump as anything but a big orange golem to do some mental defective’s task now and again) and argues all of Russia is being weakened as a result. Perhaps the Chinese are permanently preparing to take over the powerful cyber-assets that Russia can hardly use anymore; again, without the element of surprise, Russia’s size-of-Italy economy can never hope to be more than a paper tiger.
Quite the opposite for Xi, whose economy is the second strongest in the world, and who has ten times as many people as Putin-literally. 150 million to 1.42 billion. Putin is not a paper tiger at all if he can command the might of China, but that does not seem to be how things are working out in practice. Putin may find that he himself can have a personal Mephistopheles, not just be Trump’s. They’re like three Russian babushkas crossbred with voodoo dolls.
It’s definitely a fitting comeuppance for the both of them, but as tempting as it might be to leave a couple of true and utter villains in the desert to die of thirst, letting China snatch the World Island is not what’s best for the world; just look at what they’re doing to us! We will have to fight the Chinese tooth and nail, here at Millennial Democrats, and it’s actually thinkable that for a time the domestic and Russian opposition may end up being allies to resist what would amount to a second Mongol invasion of Europe. Wouldn’t it be terrible if we ended up having to stand with Putin and Trump to keep China from overtaking all? Yes, absolutely, but stranger things have happened.
In any possible scenario, don’t forget to vote a straight blue ticket next year.
In the end, it’s got to be useful to realize that, as with everything else going on these days, this is not about Trump, he’s just Putin’s donkey (now quite possibly on loan to Xi Jinping).
It’s about geopolitics and finance long term. This hacking transition between our two most dangerous global adversaries is a part of it; we’re in a transitional phase of the game, a chess master might say. And I tell you this, world, I shout it from the rafters! They are up to something right this very minute, laying the groundwork and pipelines for whatever scumbag plot they’ve dreamed up for next year. That’s what all this hacking and setting up of disinformation and preparing to create their own troll farms is about.
The Chinese are a notoriously subtle people, they’re far more sophisticated than the Russians. They’re going to hit us as hard as they can, as suddenly as they can, from an angle they think we will not expect, and unless we can wake people up in time somehow they’ll succeed. They’re doing it as we speak (probably literally, I’ll check my email to see if there are any fresh Bruteforce Attacks that have come in even while I wrote this article here in a minute).
They’re talking about a Chinese troll farm, an Internet Research Agency China! The Epoch Times has already started to become this very thing, that’s why Facebook yanked their adds three days after it was discovered that they’re owned trolls themselves have prototypes already, they’re called 50 Centers for the amount of money they get paid to do what they do. The MSM has not yet fully put this together yet, only bits and pieces, who knows what their rationale would be for not raising the rafters on this one.
Maybe some of them want to be cautious, journalistic standards and all; okay, we can dig it, I like to think I live by them too- just not to the point of embracing cowardice.
Maybe, like last time, they’ll want to wait until all the facts are in- when the next Mueller Report comes out in 2022.
We don’t have that luxury, America, and more specifically you Democrats who are the only ones at all who have set their minds and hearts toward guarding her, our beautiful mother and fatherland. but we at Millennial Democrats have known now for over a year because the enemy hackers themselves were our instructors. Our WordPress blog has now been the target of more than six hundred bruteforce hacking attempts, and now they’re making larger moves. Even Facebook has had to do something (which it only ever does if it gets dangerous to Zuckerberg’s bottom line not to), that being the suspension of Epoch Times ads-which were all Trump ads! That can only mean Facebook is concerned about it too, but everyone is being quiet-
Except for us.
Start watching for this; it is NOT incredible. Would that it were! We are up against an enemy this time who is ten times stronger than Russia; Xi has forced Putin to be his donkey boy. They’ve got some new tricks, and some old tricks with new faces. Keep your eyes on it, Democrats! Record the tendency. Take screenshots! Save emails. We have to be able to prove this six ways from Sunday, or the big boys in our intelligence community, a la 2016, will just keep ignoring it right up until the bitter end.
What are some of these new tricks, you ask? What got me on this line of thought today? Something quite at random, as it works out. I was just sort of absently scrolling through my timeline on Facebook, and here I find being shared and Liked by leftists a story that did not belong in the newspaper it belonged to- The Epoch Times, half ultra-conservative and half conspiracy factory. I had to check it out, and as usual,
The far-right disinformation rag known as the Epoch Times has been running this story on a black woman who has just been made a general. That’s fantastic in our eyes, and in the eyes of many others also on the left.
So why would the Epoch Times be running it? They’re somewhere between Breitbart News and the Russian disinformation office- both of whom also were taught ritualistically to exploit racial issues in America. I guess I’d have to say my DissectFake button went into overdrive right about then. Sure enough, the only story I could find about a black woman colonel being made a general, Lorna Mahlock, was a year old (that’s a real article, folks, back there in the link, NOT the Epoch Times).
Readable or not, why would the Epoch Times not only run such a story but dig it up and revive it and recirculate it after a year? It was really quite a puzzle and still is, other than that it’s clearly a honey trap, meaning they’re hoping to draw in and reprogram a few disgruntled leftists. Strange.
What sort of weird plot is this? I asked myself, puzzled- as puzzled as I was the first time the Chinese tried hacking into this blog. China? Hm, thought I. It didn’t seem to make much sense. For the likes of this guy to be hacking the blog was one thing; after all, I did articles on him and his boss all the time.
Upon looking it up I could not find a word about this woman anywhere else. So I Googled it with the words “epoch times” in quotation marks (which whittles down the search engine optimization [SEO] down a great deal; good way to get answers quick, folks. Know this stuff! They do! We cannot let them get ahead of us in anything).
And when I did, the most bizarre article came up. It’s a piece by the New Yorker on this other magazine that’s made to lie to Chinese people living abroad from China (members of the Chinese Diaspora, a term we will revisit), specifically students. Upon reading a ways into that, I saw what the relevance was. The New Yorker article was talking about the Epoch Times and a recent discovery regarding it made by NBC, just twelve days ago on August 20.
The Epoch Times is owned by the Chinese.
Unbelievable. Right on the cusp of the biggest week of cyber-assaults in MD’s proud history, we note that Facebook also seems to have taken action. They canceled the Epoch Times’s ads three days after this was discovered. A “Czechoslovakian” hacker sent a virus in a message to all kinds of people I know on the same day that some weirdo from France-who, as it works out, lived in an area where a very large portion of France’s three-quarters of a million Chinese emigres live- kept trying to hack me all day long. Circumstantial evidence keeps mounting up and intensifying.
Researching this, incidentally, we found out that a Czech IP address can be bought quite easily, usable from any point in the world. It may use NordVPN to do it as they have forty-five servers in the Czech Republic, and many people at this point know that’s the very VPN hackers like to use the best, especially those who like to use Tor Browser a lot, accessing the deep web and firing off shots at me from. This a
One guy actually managed numerous times to attempt his hack through Tor nodes themselves, which was interesting because the Geolocation feature came up grey.
Tor makes you anonymous, of course, but even still the timestamps told on the guy. It told me it had happened many hours before, and I just had I have no proof that would hold up in court proving this guy is Chinese, but certainly, the reviews left about his IP address on whatismyIPaddress.com labeling him a hacker at least ten times made me wonder. He was using the very same techniques like the ones who try and get me all the time from Hangzhou, XML exploits, trying to log in here as ‘admin’ over and over,
The big one, though, is that all of these guys with all these hacking complaints-from many, many different websites including some that are innocuous- seem to have gotten started the same week- the one Donald Trump took office in or later that year, 2017. Not one of them has a single complaint from before then. Not a one.
I read this one book on cadre training regiments that Chinese Communist Party schools use to indoctrinate and prepare their recruits for ideological warfare with, which hints at why this might be; they call it party entrepreneurialism. It’s a decentralizing sort of strategy and a useful one because it’s not likely they’re even being specifically, personally asked to sign a contract per se for any of this. Although past a certain point no Westerner can know exactly what they do, in a state-run capitalist society. Basically, they know there’s going to be money in it for them anytime they can get anyone the boss
This has only been known for eleven days. We are not far behind, folks, we got lucky. I really just chanced across this quite per happenstance, it wasn’t doing opposition research or anything like that. I was just reviewing my timeline on Facebook. Hardly even thinking about politics and certainly not Chinese politics.
Who knew this would literally lead to what may very well be the most critical single factor in next year’s election!
They’ve got this college newspaper aimed at Chinese students abroad, College Daily. It’s being called by this stupid new term of a “post-truth” paper; Let’s here in America not be afraid to call a lie a lie! Those are lie papers, not post-truth. They’re blatant falsehood papers, so let’s meet their falsehoods with a sternly repeated truth- It turns out the Epoch Times, right-wing disinfo paper, is Chinese!
The ones operating the paper are emigres, part of that Diaspora thing we were just talking about. It’s called the Golan Fang sect. Back in the 1980s, it was little more than a public workout program for Chinese people. But after 1999, for reasons Western outsiders are not privy to (although sooner or later, the reason why will turn up, it always does) it fell out of Beijing’s favor and was ruthlessly suppressed. Its leaders were chased into exile, some ended up here, and from that fact alone they’ve been assumed by our intelligence communities to be anti-China’s government.
However, things are not always as simple as they seem.
Turns out these Golan Fangs here, religious cult types like Tulsi Gabbard, ran 11,000k Trump adds last year alone. That is more pro-Trump adds put out by them than anyone else. No other group in all the world, not Russia nor the RNC nor the Kochtopus, ran that many ads for Trump last year. Fishy? You bet your life. Here at Millennial Democrats, regular readers will already know that in politics, and when up against this shifty segment of the global elite especially, things are almost never like they’re being put out there as. This is no different and a stellar example besides. It’s just another con. #FakeLeftIsAltRight.
Don’t be fooled by the anti-Chinese reputation this lot has got. The Epoch Times is as dirty as they get and it’s performing a task China’s government needs with great enthusiasm and alacrity. They’ve been a highly persecuted sect for the last twenty years. That’s why they’re over here now. They have every reason to cut a deal with Xi. Maybe if they can make him happy, they can all go home, fish one another out of the labor camps, and take each other out for beers and sake.
All they’ve got to do is a nice hard and dirty number down on us.
You can take it on faith the dear Epoch staff is controlled opposition by this point even if they started out genuine. If they’re pushing Trump this hard, forget it. 11,000+ Trump ads in a year? That is not the work of a hobbyist unless it was a peculiar sort of autist like me. It’s too big and too expensive for that by a damn sight. At the College Daily, the other spreader of perfidious untruth, they’ve got trained teams learning how to use clickbait- just as we’ve seen more and more these last four years and even prior. They are organized, fanatical, and pretty good. We have got to catch up now. Soon it will be too late.
It’s just like Lenin said, “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” It’s this man and his legacy we’re up against, folks, in terms both of his philosophy and his iron political doctrines. Direct lineage. China’s Mao learned from Russia’s Stalin whose mentor and master was Lenin, founder of the Soviet Union, the evilest empire the world has ever known, and also to that most evil and merciless system, Leninist Communism, the variety that starved to death five million of its own people in the first five years it had the power to.
For a thought toward what we’re really up against here, let’s briefly discuss how much more lethal and cruel Communism was than even fascism (which in large part justified itself by pointing at the Soviets without one single word). Even if we include the Nazis, we are still talking about the most lethal system ever. These people killed FAR more people than the Nazis. There’s a reason why we’re so anti-socialism around here.
We might not have any cadre training; hell, many of us never went to college. It doesn’t matter. The free thinking activist who takes on such rigorous training for the love of God and country alone will always defeat the mechanical drudgy Communist. They have no choice but to murder their people into doing what they want.
As an aside, Democrats would never be forced into such a foul unnecessity. Why? Because we have a philosophy, and a good one. With a core made of decency and strength and light. The people we’ve got are all here by choice. For free. Because we see what’s going on and we have set out in grim earnest to stop these savages in their tracks.
God bless the American Democratic Party, that is blessed with such amazing personnel.
In the Black Book of Communism, Stephane Courtois lays the numbers out flat and stark. The Nazis, deliberately bestial and murderous animals that they were, even so were not able to even get near the body count of the Communists. 20-25 million taken out by Nazis, and 80-100 million killed by Communism.
When I hear that, I see the moronic face of Bernie Sanders, chuckling like a zombie ghoul in some restless awful corner of my brain. “To me, democratic socialism means democracy, basically,” said our dear old St. Bernard.
STOP DRAGGING IT THROUGH THE MUD, THEN! DROP THE SOCIALISM! It’s advocating for mass murder and the Gulag Archipelago. Statistically, as we have seen- and still see now in places like Venezuela- I could tell you all to volunteer at Auschwitz with a better conscience that I’d tell you to Feel the Bern, all because of that reckless vicious socialism. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Here’s that video again where he’s getting drunk with the Soviets on his honeymoon, howling out Woody Guthrie in a shirtless and not quite presidential manner.
These days the cult of Mao is dead; there’s not much to be gained by inspiring people anymore with Enlightenment liberty or Revolutionary utopia. Both are a total joke to the people we are up against. But the society he started, the party schools and cadre training and endlessly fanatical disciples, is alive and well on Planet Earth- just like Satan.
This means that China is, even more, a threat this year than Russia! They are going to be our chief adversary next year while we are all still watching for Macedonians and Russians- right after the Federal Election Commission has been shut down! They are counting on their ability to catch us off guard again even as we look for it.
We have to tell everyone we can! This is BEYOND critical! Raise awareness! The country is depending on our ability to care about it. Right now the whole world is on a precipice, anything could happen to set things off. World War I started because people were bored and they still are. We are cleaning up that mess to this very day, and it’s about to get a whole lot worse.
Here are some screenshots, taken just today. Even as I finished doing my homework, I realized this was something really big. Nobody has seen this yet so far as I know. We have to raise awareness this time; it’s not just a moral imperative. There is something big about to happen, and everyone is looking in the wrong direction. Look at how obvious the Russians are these days.
Sound the alarm! Tell everyone you know! Call your Senator, your Representative; call the White House if you’ve somehow gotten the impression he’s not part of it, he brings you up to speed in word and deed, constantly. The Chinese are ten times more dangerous than the Russians ever were. We have to get ready. Now.
The Association of State Democratic Committees had some very good news for us on Tuesday. According to their announcement, every leading presidential contender has vowed not to create “any organizing or messaging infrastructure that is parallel or duplicative” to the DNC or state parties. According to Politico, the signed pledge also binds candidates to publicly call on their supporters not to launch outside groups on their behalf.
That leaves the fate of Bernie Sanders-created PAC Our Revolution uncertain at best. Probably their days are numbered.
It’s a good thing too. This organization is a hornet’s nest. Nina Turner is one of the bigwigs over there, and she’s a vicious cannibal through and through, an eater of guests beneath her roof. She told all her supporters to go and vote Jill Stein in 2016, and they did. Now look where we are. They have our children on the border in dog cages, and none of it could have happened without that set of crazies from Bernie’s old camp, back then.
Many disasters have taken place involving the DNC since 2016, and most are the fault of the so-called progressives. Here at Millennial Democrats, we’ve been charting out the story now for years. The biggest coup they scored was his just over three years ago, the Russian-facilitated Wikileaks dump of illegally acquired DNC emails.
Now-prisoner Julian Assange got together with Russia, now-prisoner Roger Stone, and now-prisoner Paul Manafort to plan out what surely ranks as one of the most effective non-military blows ever struck by one country at another. Russian disinformation manipulated American opinion just as our intelligence used to do to small Third World powers back in Reagan’s time and before. It was like living in a banana republic.
Their efforts, as it happened, prepared an abominable toxin for blue chances in 2016. Insane members of the Bernie or Bust cult rioted in the streets of Philadelphia outside Hillary Clinton’s nomination ceremony, Bernie said nothing at all to calm them down, and America was watching. In a bizarre twist of fate, as they did, the first song of the ceremony inside was beginning, Paul Simon’s Bridge over Troubled Waters. Clinton’s campaign never really recovered. We lost the election that night.
And yet, the emails were nothing! Many of us vetted them thoroughly, all twenty-eight thousand of them. They ended up proving Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS) did some fussing about the Sanders’ campaign’s inability to file FEC forms out properly. Bernie had to have known they didn’t even hint at anything improper. He also had to know how great the peril of Donald Trump actually winning that fall’s general was afterward.
Why didn’t Bernie go speak for hours in the rain to calm them down? That’s what he’d been doing for himself, according to one post I read back then. The great altruist, St. Bernard, friend of the little man.
It should never be forgotten that without should-be-prisoner Tad Devine, the senior strategist in Bernie’s camp, Sanders might have calmed down enough to actually do that. But Tad, who had worked with Paul Manafort for years in Ukraine cooking up elections for Putin, Tad who had made his crisis his brand (literally; Our Brand is Crisis is a slogan of his and the name of a documentary about him), was not about to let that happen, even when other campaign officials such as manager Jeff Weaver would have liked to see him go a different way.
This connection struck us as the absolute height of fishiness back then, but nobody listened, least of all Bernie and his bots. When Manafort went on trial last year right around now, Tad was the first witness. What did the line of questioning require of him? To answer for what he knew about cooking those elections up in Ukraine for then-president Viktor Yanukovych and Vladimir Putin!
When this came out, Sanders was silent, and so were his followers, many of whom later rejoiced when Trump got off the hook in the Mueller investigation. They never wanted to hear anything about Russia back then, even though half of the admins in their groups were Macedonian and other Eastern European infiltrators only around to spread disinformation and foment rancor in the hearts those they were paid to attack- the American left, both moderate and progressive. Bernie or Bust has betrayed its every cause at every turn.
Going forward, it’s incumbent on us not to forget why we’re doing this, what our cause is. The cause is the service of the United States and its people. It’s about making progress de facto instead of just de jure on issues like health care or climate change, both major targets of the libertarian right, which we can never do without being in power. You can forget about holding ICE accountable, too, much less stripping it of funding.
In this case it was about protecting American elections from foreign manipulations. It wasn’t just about getting Donald Trump; or, at least, it shouldn’t have been. Russian interference in the Sanders campaign was hardly covered at all by Robert Mueller; that’s why Tad was a witness instead of being just another jailbird. The mainstream media said hardly a word. Raising awareness about this is still very difficult, given the frightful dearth of information available to the busy citizen who would just the same be informed if it were possible. That is simply wrong. It is not best for America.
Our Revolution, the group currently under the scope, is an outgrowth of that same cancerous 2016 Sanders campaign, a topsy-turvy landscape where nothing had value and truth did not even pretend to exist. Having done well for oneself financially became a crime unless you were the millionaire Bernie Sanders. He wouldn’t show his tax returns back then, just like Trump.
The same energy still floats around it; It is a good thing for us to strongly advocate the new 2020 candidate agreement not to try and duplicate the DNC be made to include the complete and total dissolution of Our Revolution, a political action committee (PAV) created by Sanders himself. It has to go.
As an aside, this is not in our opinion the deserved fate of all pro-Sanders groups. No matter how annoying they may be, no matter how toxic their socialistic brand, we will stand for their right to speak just as fervently as we would our own or even a libertarian’s, though not a Nazi’s.
If only there were a way to do the same to the Justice Democrats! would be a logical first thought, but of course, that would involve getting rid of Millennial Democrats as well. God bless our dear good country, that bothers to protect our rights to speak. All of us.
Returning to our thread, try and contemplate the unthinkable for a moment (this should NOT be attempted by sane Democrats with heart or blood pressure conditions; we’ll take one for the team, folks). Imagine if Bernie did win the candidacy, his rape fantasy essays and all. In a general election? Has the whole world gone crazy?
Having all these metric tons of crap hung over our heads like a big brown Sword of Damocles would be a disaster. It’ll be Eugene McCarthy all over again. A thorough and outright joke. Trump will laugh himself back into the Oval Office, and the looks on all our faces will be the punchline.
I don’t want to be a punchline!
Going forward, it seems clear that we have got to stand together strongly to beat Trump. The whole left, not just the moderates or progressives. A house divided can never stand for long. If we are to win next year, if things are going to improve for any of us, we have got to show some unity right now. One family, one leadership, one nomination committee. The DNC must remain in command of strategical coordination, they are going to need our help, and only one solution serves all needs.
Our Revolution must go, and the rest of us must stay.
Donald Trump is at it again, and he is not alone. It’s just like professional wrestling. Heel, vs. Hero. This feud he’s got going with the Squad, that being the famous and infamous four-person bloc of socialist junior Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and to a lesser extent Ayanna Pressley (who somewhat unfairly is often lumped together with the rest, even when she herself did nothing wrong) is the single most difficult problem facing Democrats today. Donald Trump has turned the four of them into his own personal Goldstein a la 1984, a bogeyman to stir up his base with. They themselves stir the pot at every turn.
And we’ve got to clean up the slop; a Democrat’s due.
As if that lot needed any more stirring! We won’t need to remind anyone of the slaughter in El Paso, Texas recently, or in Dayton, but one day it could be useful to note this was written in the aftermath of those shootings. It all ties together, rather horribly so.
To support these four women, strong and intelligent though they be, in a proportion commensurate both with their own behavior and with the significance they bear to all this in mind is not easy, even though you’d think it would be. I want to support them. I support many others like them who get little press because they don’t go around attention-grabbing, grandstanding about grand political theories; eighty-four women received congratulations and articles of support from me, including the Squad. They’re Millennial Democrats, after all, same as me. It is natural that I would want to support them. And yet, their entanglements with socialism, Bernie Sanders, and their own unfortunate tendency to flap off at the gums whenever it suits them make that impossible.
It’s a real nightmare, and no mistake; the only thing in this whole entire shebang that I have really had to think about very much. It presents a philosophical problem, an actual problem, and a strategical problem. Plus plenty of personnel problems. But the big problem, the deal-breaker problem, is with these guys, the Justice Democrats, like Cenk Uygur down there in the picture, and their sister organization the Democratic Socialists of America, not to be confused with Nordic social democracy no matter how many times they try to trump it up.
This is close to the heart of the problem and is good to talk about in heading toward the root of the rot. We cannot fully accept AOC and the other Squad members without fully embracing their often-insane policies, statements, and socialistic views. All of them are close to the heart of the problem, which is good to talk about in heading toward the root of the rot. This is not arbitrary, nor do we have anything less than the most compelling reasons for crafting our policy
The campaign of Bernie Sanders was even more infested with insincere infiltrators and acidic agents than Trump’s was. In fact, his campaign manager, Tad Devine, was the first witness called to testify at the trial of Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort. Turns out they’d been working together for a dozen years, fixing elections at Putin’s behest in Ukraine. Along with Rick Gates, that makes three major strategists involved in opposing Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency who had been doing Putin’s bidding in this regard for more than a decade.
This is a shame because they are adding relevant and important topics into the national dialogue. They are also women of color who got elected on the tide of the Blue Wave in the Year of the Democratic Woman, which we wrote about every day for months. And even when Ilhan Omar shot her mouth off in the most insensitive manner (referring to 9/11, the greatest tragedy in our country’s history, as ‘something’ people did, without a single word spoken in condemnation of Islamic terrorism, which is every bit as despicable and criminal as white nationalist terrorism), we stood with her because Trump was shooting off his mouth so bad we were afraid some ‘lone gunman’ would kill her. That’s the exact truth, and God forgive this country that it should be so.
That is why I’m writing this, even now, to explain why I won’t support her to half my team while explaining to the other half why I won’t join in to crush her.
This is not a half-measure, either. It’s just assorting elements and factors and weighing them. There’s a lot of danger being presented to those girls, and while they may feel exhilarated and invulnerable now, there’s a lot of crazy people out there. Making them front line targets like this is a pretty cold-blooded strategy, even if it does work. But that didn’t much seem to bother the so-called “Democratic” socialists who made them, and who are guiding their hands as they craft policy going forward. Heedless and reckless, and more work for us. One disaster after the next.
Surely, you say, this must be a small price to pay for such energetic new young allies- would that it were true! That would indeed be the case if they didn’t want to spend all their time attacking Democrats. AOC’s first act after getting elected was to go start a protest in Nancy Pelosi’s office- across the nation from them, on the taxpayer’s expense- over climate change which we were doing anyway. She seemed disappointed when she found that out, as if she’d really been looking forward to a good fight-with her own people, during the Trump era.
That is the kind of trouble we have had with the Squad, ever since the Blue Wave hit home hard last November and even before. They want to sit on the sidelines, voting with the Republicans unless we will insanely join them on calling for the abolition of ICE. Ocasio-Cortez did that first when the government needed to be reopened. She said she had made a ‘tough, nuanced call’. ICE funding wasn’t even on the bill! No one had a clue what she was talking about, and that was bad enough. So were dozens of other times she’s shot off her mouth, like when she went on Firing Line and talked about the Israeli “occupation of Palestine (sigh).
But then when it came time to vote on whether or not little children on our southern border, the ones locked in DOG CAGES, ought to receive basic amenities like soap and toothpaste, the socialists stood against us in a bloc and voted no, I was so disgusted I could barely speak for days.
This is how it’s gone for nearly four years now; we try to build something, like a more accurate public portrayal of Democratic sanity and they undermine and destroy it for no reason at all. Now we can’t even come together on little kids being treated not like animals.
We have been stabbed in the back until there’s no more room for fresh scars by the people who promoted and created the Squad in the first place. That means organizations like the Justice Democrats, Brand New Congress, and the Democratic Socialists of America. Each is owned and operated by radical left extremists who hated Hillary Clinton worse than Trump and all but said so every day, as loud as they could. We are not going to forget that, over here. Count on it.
I will never forget.
Ocasio-Cortez got her start in politics working on the Bernie Sanders campaign. All her top strategists were previously his. They were underestimated by Crowley, he got slammed; maybe he had gotten complacent and his time was meant to be over, that’s what they’re saying, but when you’re talking about the seats of high power in the world? The United States Congress? I will take decades of experience and a bad judgment call born of inertia over a bartender socialist who worked for Bernie Sanders, any day of the week, month, or year. I say we got the worst deal imaginable, and the Squad had better own up to that fact and do something to change things drastically, while they still can.
These are the Bernie or Bust believers who rioted in the streets of Philadelphia, without a single regard for ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters’ as Paul Simon played it outside. That is the problem. Their rioting and nonsense made all this possible. It was done on purpose, and it was done for a cause. That cause is to replace Democrats by taking them out from below. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was discovered and created by these people, savvily rabid promoters, for this purpose and this alone. She was used as a poisoned dart to get rid of Joe Crowley, one of the best Democrats we had in the House of Representatives, and she continues to allow herself to be employed for this terrible purpose.
So while we welcomed her arrival on the scene- we wrote her a congratulatory article, along with some good advice- it’s been a risky bet from the get-go. AOC’s presence thus far has caused more trouble than it’s worth. We look forward eagerly to a day where this statement can be recanted- but when that day is coming, who can say?
Whether this trouble has been done at her behest or in her name really doesn’t matter. So long as she’s got her name in their roster, so long as they’ve got the unnecessary and random “Justice” on their scrolling marquees and business cards, so long as she is advocating for this repugnant new hybrid system of state called “democratic” or corporate socialism but is really just state capitalism like in China, we are never going to get to a point where we can take the Squad in as we might like to.
This could change, of course. It wouldn’t really take much, either. Tell all your people to quit acting like lunatics and make sure they’re registered to vote Democratic. We genuinely would like nothing better than to see the Squad mend their wicked ways, God knows we need the help. But it’s help we can’t accept if they won’t quit acting up.
No one candidate or set of candidates can ever be worth letting either yourself or your Party become polluted, a vector for the plague that is socialism. That will destroy us for 2020 and maybe leave us flat on our backs forever afterward if democracy really does collapse all the way here. We’re not living in a full democracy now, according to the World Freedom Index, and haven’t been since 2016. If we want to see our way of life recover, we had really better come together now.
Going forward, it’s going to be more and more important that we’ve got a solution to the problem posed by the Squad. It just keeps coming up, so we’ve got to have a clear answer. So here it is.
We support them as people, as millennials, and as Democrats. When it comes to their socialistic nonsense and their ravening friends, however, it should be separated from them neatly, packaged like a diaper, and thrown down a well so deep it has no bottom. The political moderate will feel the truth in this approach.
We have to draw a clear line between sticking up for them as human beings when attacked by a cowardly bully and accepting their poisoned bait, a type of ideological Trojan Horse of a time bomb, too deep in the fold to avoid lethal damage should it go off. The stakes are too high for all this messing around. Hopefully they see that before it’s too late.
In the end, you’ve got to take one day at a time, resolve to be fair, and make the best of it. The Squad is who and what they are, and we’ll have to make room for them anyway, so we might as well at least let them know there’s a spot for them on our bench, waiting, one that would be bigger had they themselves not been so impetuous and quick to blow atomic with their mouths.
I just hope I am not doing wrong myself in refusing to throw any boots into the stomping. Socialism!! Socialism, no less. Never ever shall I see the day. You Squad, you! Stop landing this crap on us!
Although even Socrates has argued strongly for the State taking a benevolent stance toward gadflies, this cannot be expected to apply to the African tsetse fly which carries sleeping sickness. You’ll end up looking like Bernie Sanders if you get a bad enough case of that stuff.
It is with a great many emotions contending in my heart that I wrote this eulogy, commemorating the life of one of the bravest, kindest, and most determined people I have ever had the privilege of knowing, Democratic activist and organizer Roneen A. Henn. Sorrow, loss, relief that her pain is over, and a lifelong resolve to carry on her work and make the dream she fought for whole.
When the disaster of 2016 happened to us all, when hearts were down and the trenches were emptying, Roneen stayed. When the going got rough, especially in 2017 when the troll invasions began and the hard fighting was constant, she knew she was needed and she stepped up to the plate without even being asked. That’s who she was. She helped everyone who asked her, she brought cheer, she was there every day when a lot of others were not. She was more than just another colleague. She was my friend, and many others as well; I really miss her. It was hard for me to write this. Regardless of our views on politics or anything else, a great many people who she counseled and cared for and loved are bowing their heads, united in our Democratic Memoriam, one at last. That’s what she would have wanted.
Roneen is survived by her mother, Noreen Peters, and many that she took under her wing over the years, and the cause that she gave her entire life to. She passed down a great deal of accumulated knowledge and wisdom, and her method of running a big-tent organization such as one of our most venerable and lively institutions She was one of us. Although she was many years my senior, she was a Millennial Democrat with all her heart. We would not be where we are right now without her because she helped to shape the debates that have crafted our philosophy, and helped to visualize the worldview that we now represent, and have come to the national discourse to offer.
Each one of us matters, we are stronger than we know, and the work we do endures. Roneen was passed a torch and she never dropped it, but rather handed it to us, who will forever be honored by her trust and by the love she bore for all. As we resolutely approach the task of carrying that torch forward, we will have her in our hearts and minds.
I went to sleep on Saturday night with a troubled spirit, thinking about Donald Trump and Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, thanks to a soon-to-be-forgotten Trump-supporting scumbag terrorist who shot more than forty people in El Paso, Texas. A mother of three, an army veteran, a teenage kid. That’s who he was killing.
When I woke up and heard about another double-digit shooting committed by a maniac from deep within Trump country, this time in Dayton, Ohio, I took a deep breath and realized. It may well be beginning.
Folks, they’re killing us out here. Keep your eyes open, and be ready. It’s coming down like hailstorms all around us.
We tried to tell them, back then. The Jill Stein bots, the Bernie or Busters, etc. You people, I say to them, are the biggest morons to have ever disgraced God’s green earth, by the way; this is just as much your fault as it is the ones who support Trump outright. Vote for Hillary Clinton, or none of this will be stoppable. The strength of our coalition will only last so long without money or leadership. At this point, it’s just the sheer guts and toughness and endless determination of the people committed to Resistance keeping this alive.
Anyone out there thinking of dropping the torch ought to remember that. And Ilhan Omar, please remember next time your Party needs you all the times we’ve had to #StandForIlhan because you shot your mouth off and made yourself a Nazi target doing so. We’re just as against socialism as anyone else, probably more so. But you don’t want to be that guy who said nothing when they came for the Communists. That mistake has already been made. We’re all in it together, at this point. Up to our necks.
Speaking of Nazi-like mistakes, like support for Donald Trump, which wasn’t something you could be open about in 2016. It wasn’t safe to be an openly white nationalistic Nazi pig, and that’s how it should be. Nazi symbols and propaganda are illegal in most of Europe, and it ought to be here. While we don’t condone or advocate for people doing things like vandalizing cars or refusing to help Trump supporters stranded on the road, we can sure understand them. They were done to deter what is happening now.
Anyone who heard how Trump was talking leading up to the November disaster that was his illegitimate victory, coincidentally sharing its date with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles ninety-eight years prior, could not help but think of Adolf Hitler and his Nazis- and the Holocaust.
Back then, there was a particularly vile Nazi who went by the name of Julius Streicher. His newspaper was sexually perverse and went by the name of Der Sturmer- the Stormer.
These days a model of originality called The Daily Stormer exists in sour tribute to that one.
Andrew “weev” Auernheimer is one of the key contributors to the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer. He wrote in the comments of a post on The Daily Stormer called “Full Text of Alleged Manifesto of El Paso Shooter” that violence against non-whites is “desirable.”
“Random violence is not detrimental to our cause, because we need to convince Americans that violence against nonwhites is desirable or at least not something worth opposing anyways, because there’s no way to remove a hundred million people without a massive element of violence,” Auernheimer wrote.
Back in the days of Nazi Germany, it was all unacceptable, right up until it wasn’t. Adolf Hitler was no billionaire like Trump, nor was he much like Trump in other ways, stupid, slow, slovenly. He was a pervert and a psychopath, but it must be conceded by any metric that the man was incredibly able. Intelligent, ruthless, and cunning. I worry every day about someone like him taking up the Trumpism torch.
But he did have the same sort of man-of-the-people air about him that Trump does, which is why-much like here- the political elites of Germany didn’t find it thinkable to accept him as the leader of the country. His movement was noisy, loud, common, and led by a former bum from the streets of Vienna. To call such a man their leader was not, in the beginning, quite the plan.
The final president of the Weimar Republic, Paul von Hindenburg, used to refer to him contemptuously as “that Austrian corporal”, and would not until the final days of his life even consider the idea of making him the Chancellor, the second-highest position in the German government. But Hindenburg was old, disorder ruled the day. Democracy had never held a high place in the hearts of the German people, who grumbled about jobs and the trains running on time. Hitler used this to overthrow the social order entirely.
Hindenburg died not long after changing his mind, and when he did Hitler acted with a ruthlessness history has not often seen, purging the members of his own Party as well as other internal enemies in the Night of the Long Knives and setting himself up as Fuhrer, Supreme Leader of the German People. In just over a year and a half the Republic was no more.
In the process, Hitler laid out a set of blueprints that every dictator in the world has studied since. How to destabilize, terrorize, and coerce a country’s people into going along with things that should have been unthinkable. The Holocaust is the term for the slaughter of six million Jews. No one in history before had ever thought to wipe out an entire race of people. But now they have, and it’s on the mind of all these mass-murdering swine here in America, who are using the same propaganda tricks and lies to raise support and enthusiasm for a similar race war on North American soil.
Conventional wisdom since the war ended has said that it could never happen again. People know what the costs could be, whereas in the past they did not. Besides which, this is America. Land of the free and the home of the brave. No way would people ever be so cowardly here as to think they had to pick up weapons and set out to slaughter their neighbors. The Stanford Prison Experiments? Stanley Milgram’s Obedience to Authority studies? Ah, only eggheads know about that stuff, what a bunch of weirdos.
Look where we are now. So much for conventional wisdom.
The Washington Post ran an article entitled ‘Shoot them!’: Trump laughs off a supporter’s demand for violence against migrants.”
A policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics this week warned of racism’s devastating effects on children. It showed another study proving the stress of Trump’s rise to power caused more high schoolers to start doing drugs that year. Conventional wisdom is not doing America any good. It’s time to change our conventions.
The El Paso massacre began just as the fatal attacks earlier this year at mosques in New Zealand and a San Diego-area synagogue did. A racist manifesto and an announcement on the anonymous message board 8chan, one of the Web’s most venomous refuges for extremist hate. It’s as clear as anything ever has been in the history of all mankind this place is a terrorist recruiter’s dream come true. Our reasons for not treating it like one? The cops don’t want to. ‘
There is a direct correlation between then and now, and that is what this article is saying.
This can all be viewed as having taken place on a timeline. After Germany lost World War Two, American democracy was up against a group of thugs and criminals who had murdered even more people than the Nazis had, the Soviet Union, of which Russia was the central state (So clearly, we get it, but still).
On the way to that period of time, we got to take a trip through the wonders of Watergate and the Richard Nixon presidency. We went all over this during Robert Mueller’s Russiagate investigation, which had a sad end. Mueller went before Congress and said that Trump knew the Russians hacked our election, welcomed their help, and expected to benefit from it. Total disregard of morality in the pursuit of power is the key at the heart of fascism.
The kinds of things that were done by Nixon’s thugs from the Committee to Re-Elect the President (CREEP) were no different, and many of the same characters were involved, e.g. Roger Stone. All were from the Nazi playbook. Agent provocateurs, break-ins, blackmail, the political dirty trick campaigns known by Karl Rove’s old mentor, Donald Segretti, as “ratf*cking, as in, f*cking a DemocRAT.
G. Gordon Liddy, the guy who actually executed the break-in, was a neo-Nazi himself. The case study of this one guy will spin your head about what’s going on with the Nazis in our government, who have almost always made their home in the Republican Party.
I read his biography, WILL. He admits openly his inspiration for the title was the famous 1934 Leni Riefenstahl film that became hugely influential as a propaganda film for Hitler and the Nazis, Triumph des Willens, or The Triumph of the Will. Apparently, his mother used to sing it to him as a child. He also boasted of having walked naked down the tier in the Washington, D.C. country jail while singing the Horst Wessel song, Raise High the Flag, which made a national martyr out of a Nazi pimp. Yet for all that he was a tough guy and supposedly trusted by Nixon, he was beaten like an animal by two men who got right out of jail again, shortly before announcing he would never, ever testify. He didn’t mention that part.
It goes on and on. Operation Bluebird and MK-Ultra were mind control experiments done with the hope in the mind of creating super-soldiers known as Manchurian candidates. We can’t even rule out that the CIA may have actually invented crack cocaine to fund Nicaraguan armies of contras.
How do you shoot yourself twice in the head with a shotgun? I don’t know, but Gary Webb does. He was the investigative journalist who broke the story. Supposedly that’s how he took his own life.
Obviously in the mind of this president, it still is.
We don’t have all the answers as to what is going on in this country. It remains to be seen if there is anyone alive who does. Only one thing is beyond doubt. Things have to change. America has become a powder keg, and Donald Trump’s rhetoric looks more like a fuse every day.
When I read that Tulsi Gabbard, of all people, had reviled her fellow 2020 presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as someone “Not Qualified” to be President of the United States of America, I was disgusted so thoroughly that I was all but beside myself. I couldn’t believe it. You have got to be kidding me. Who are you, Tulsi Gabbard, monstrous traitor and foreign cutout that you *allegedly* are, to use the term “Not Qualified” as regards a career prosecutor and elected Senator like Harris? This is completely unacceptable.
Senator Harris, we are here for you. We’re not endorsing you-or anybody else- yet, but we’re here for you. You are a Democrat.
Here at Millennial Democrats, we haven’t issued an endorsement yet, and we don’t intend to, not for a while. The reason why is the wealth of riches we have in these candidates. All of them are so vastly superior to Trump or Bernie that even to compare them is facile. Our concern is making it unified through what promises to be a chaotic primary. Democratic
We have been there for all of them, too, not to mention every other Democrat. We’ve even stood up for Ilhan Omar and praised Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when she’s done something right, even though they’re socialists. The only reason we ever have for going after another Democrat is being convinced that they’re anything but. That’s Tulsi for you. Back in 2017, we wrote that “Tulsi Gabbard has something for everyone, and all of it is dishonest“.
Well, here’s another lie she’s told. Kamala Harris is completely qualified to hold the office of President, and much more qualified than some, like her or Bernie Sanders. I remember when Bernie said the same thing about Hillary Clinton. Way to display your internalized sexism; not a big surprise considering your father was anti-gay extremist Mike Gabbard.
Researching the tangled tale of Tulsi Gabbard was really somewhat disturbing. Her situation is one of the clearest links we have to the ongoing problem of the far left and the far right converging. Her family hijacked Hawaii’s Democratic Party and runs it using Republican policies. Hardly any of her supporters have anything to do with us. According to one list of major contributors to the Tulsi Gabbard campaign, published by DailyKos in 2012, Democratic donors were actually exceptions on this list. Many of these people have not donated to campaigns other than Mike Gabbard’s Congressional campaign, or Richard Reed’s Senate campaign, both as Republicans. Reed’s Senate campaign was allegedly connected to both the Gabbards’ and to Butler’s religious group.
This all happened because Hawaii’s people and atmosphere are so liberal. It’s a one-party state; no Republican has any hope at all to get elected there. A serious attempt has not been made in years. But the last time someone gave it the old college try, it was Tulsi’s good old Dad.
The Democratic Party has had a long reign in Hawaii. Some of it comes from the popularity of the labor movement there in the 20th century, and the efforts of the Hawaii Democratic Party to push for greater inclusivity of the electoral base have traditionally been venerated. These factors have combined to earn Democrats near-complete control of the state legislature. But such an extended period of dominance has been resulting in increased voter apathy and increased factionalism within the Democratic Party of Hawaii.
This apathy is what led Mike Gabbard to try and challenge Democratic incumbent Ed Case in 2004. The elder Gabbard, known for his virulent anti-gay crusade in the 1990s, was attempting to overturn the status quo and win as a Republican the race to represent Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District. At that time, a reporter for Honolulu Magazine requested an interview on her ties to the Chris Butler cult, her family’s religion, a bizarre offshoot of the Hare Krishnas.
Tulsi got nice and mad, and listen to what she said.
“I smell a skunk,” she emailed back. “It’s clear to me that you’re acting as a conduit for … homosexual extremist supporters of Ed Case!”
We can see this vicious, right-wingesque swipe at Harris is no isolated incident, but part of a long-running pattern. She’s carrying on the legacy of her father, like any dutiful daughter, and his values were utterly conservative, far enough to the right to border on libertarianism.
Libertarianism is a political philosophy that advocates for laissez-faire economic policies in a sense so extreme they believe government should be all but eliminated. It is an offshoot of the abominably racist John Birch Society, which was founded by a Ku Klux Klan member named Fred Koch. He was the father of the infamous Koch Brothers of Koch Industries, Charles and David-the founders of a third party, the Libertarian Party, which is basically a smooth-talking version of the rabid John Birch party line. David was to have been Vice-President if they pulled it off when they first ran in 1980. He spent two million dollars of his own money making the attempt but got crushed.
But they didn’t give up. They’ve been corralling their resources patiently ever since.
The libertarian movement is an interesting case. They have some huge billionaires working with them, like Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News. It’s supposed to be as far right as it gets. So why are so many figures from the radical left caught up with them?
On the Issues, a non-partisan informational website that rates and categorizes lawmakers and candidates describes Tulsi Gabbard as a “Libertarian-Leaning Progressive” based on her voting record.
A similar organization, Progressive Punch.org, provides a searchable database of Congressional voting records, from the perspective of the far left. They gave Bernie Sanders an A, for his lifetime support of progressive causes. Tulsi Gabbard got an F. Basic logic would suggest they would stand in diametric opposition to one another.
Why do they have all the same supporters, then?
One angry supporter of Bernie Sanders wrote the following nonsense on 7/23/17, on a thread discovered on Facebook. Note his dual enthusiasm for both Bernie and Tulsi. and his loathing for moderate Democrats. “No REAL progressive is gonna vote for more of the Clinton style, corporate special interest, Big Bank donor loving, false progressive garbage. Yet…here are the Democrats showing us early on that they haven’t changed. Ready for a repeat of 2016? Personally…I will work to expose and destroy the hopes of any candidate that the DNC tries to ram down our throats again by using Super Delegates and closed Primaries…and any candidate who remained silent against the DNC’s attack on our Democracy by rigging the election against Bernie Sanders. #Sanders/Gabbard2020 #Gabbard/Turner2020 This same man later went on to beg and plead for unity among the former supporters of Sanders- so that they will have greater success in attacking not Republicans, but Democrats. Mentioned at the spearhead of this assault on their fellows in the left, is always one name- Tulsi Gabbard.
Her record shows again and again that is not a Democrat in anything but name, even though so-called progressives love her. She managed to hoodwink Bernie supporters into thinking she is one of them. By resigning from the DNC at the time Bernie or Bust rioted during HRC’s nomination and since has come to embody misguided attacks by so-called progressives on the so-called liberal elite. In point of fact, however, the evidence indicates quite otherwise. Tulsi Gabbard does not vote like a progressive darling. She’s a surfer, which seems to be more important than her voting record. What a mess. This person would be the biggest con in the world if she wasn’t so incompetent. Ever heard her speak? Better than sleeping pills. Snore.
Her voting record, world view, and connections resemble much more closely a resume, tailor-made to be both barely acceptable to the leaders of the Democratic Party, and a perfect Libertarian plant.
Since the 2016 disaster, people worldwide have been paying more attention to world events- which have been pretty awful. Great Britain just got a far-right prime minister, Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil is stomping up and down on human rights, and Marine Le Pen of France, who is blatantly Putin-financed, is leading Emmanuel Macron in the polls. Meanwhile, far-left figures like Sanders and parties like Germany’s pro-Putin Die Linke vote on behalf of Russian interests all over Europe. All this has helped a public awareness begin growing toward a reoccurring trend, one reshaping the entire scale of the political spectrum.
The left and the right are becoming the same entity.
This is far from new. History has played this drama out a great many times. The two have often historically converged when a common friend or foe suits both of their needs, and have proven capable of working in effective concert even though they’re involved for different reasons. Lenin’s doctrines specifically advocated for Communists using this technique, and these days they’ve been doing it so long they’ve started to resemble each other. New anti-democracy hybrid systems of totalitarianism may call themselves what they like, of course, be it corporate socialism or state-run capitalism. But in terms of policy and temperament, they are exactly the same.
This is why the monopolists are trying so hard to combine the far-right and far-left. They’re stirring up chaos until they see the ladder Petyr Baelish spoke of in Game of Thrones manifest, and then they use it. Nothing too complicated, but they’ve got a lot of ways to get it done. It’s almost like a game of three-card monte; its complexity lies within its simplicity. The monopolists are going to try and use that ladder to guide us off the path of freedom and democracy so that guys like the Kochs can run everything without any governmental restraint at all. That was why libertarianism was conceived of, and although it didn’t catch on right away, it’s got a few heads full of steam now. We are in the middle of watching nothing less than a full-fledged attempt at a Libertarian revival, aimed at the destruction of the newer and more cultured America we enjoyed under Bill Clinton and Obama.
When Trump took office, one of the first things he did was to yank us out of the Paris Accord so big business could get back to work mucking up the lakes and rivers again. That item had been high on the Koch agenda for years. When Scott Pruitt, a former Oklahoma attorney general who had spent his whole career fighting the EPA, was chosen by Trump as the agency’s new head, all concerned had no trouble with interpreting that move. He’d been brought in to gradually dismantle it. Let’s return to the days of starting Lake Erie on fire, what a neat idea, dear boy have a cigar.
It seems clear that clean water for Flint, Michigan is about as likely as the same for Japan’s nuclear power plant post-tsunami. It just isn’t a priority to monopolists.
They want to bring things back to the old way, graft and corruption, and big bosses. Stuff we take for granted, like minimum wages and the eight-hour workday would be gone in a terrible flash. Ever read Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle? Great book, but don’t read it on an empty stomach. Work-life was nightmarish for the American workingman back then. That’s what it would be like with no government that could hold big business accountable. That’s why Democrats have to dedicate their lives every single generation to fighting back this growing darkness.
It is also why the far left is getting to be such a tremendous problem. They fight us at every turn for no reason, but very rarely the Republicans. The Squad of freshmen Representatives like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is comprised of all socialists who voted against caged children getting soap in a bloc just a few short weeks ago. Likewise, Trump is gaining all sorts of mileage by attacking them. Their ability to repulse middle America, in particular, is all but a red flag in the eyes of frenzied bulls. Their radical views are his biggest asset in 2020.
The punk rock anarchist types are clueless about getting taken in. Their protests are undermining their entire value systems, not to mention their future right to stay healthy. They think it’s going to all be dancing through Utopia- the Greek word for “nowhere”. My guess is it would be more like that movie “The Purge”. Without real Democrats to protect them, people too different to blend in would be little more than easy prey. To whose benefit does that end up working for? The monopolists, of course! They’re like a hydra, striking at a million places at once. They’ve got all the money. That’s why they’re able to co-opt so many people in either party- like Tulsi Gabbard.
On the Issues, a non-partisan informational website that rates and categorizes lawmakers and candidates describes Gabbard as a “Libertarian-Leaning Progressive” based on her voting record.
Monopolist sects of the global elite are linking up transnationally and behind the scenes in a previously unheard-of level of cooperation and making their presences known through elected proxies like Tulsi Gabbard.
To pull it off, they’ve got to use a combination of theatrics and money to manipulate the national dialectic, hoping they can eventually fool the people into demanding a third party, likely to be similar to the Viktor Orban’s Hungary “managed democracy” hybrid systems that are taking form everywhere across the world.
Two-thirds of the world’s states are now no longer democracies, including the United States. according to non-partisan organization the World Freedom Index, and that is very dangerous to everyone. The only thing still holding this neo-fascist tide from sweeping over the whole world like wildfire is the strength even of American democracy’s memory. That’s why they are trying to attack it. The only guardians of it are the centrists of the Democratic Party, which is why all this is happening. Their true enemies are not socialists. They are the liberals.
They are us, Democrats.
This is the likely explanation for why she thought it a good idea to savage one of her fellow Democrats, Kamala Harris, with such a mean and rude assault on her qualifications. It adds acrimony and stress to our already taxed body politic. She’s always doing something to hurt our party. They’ve been talking about running her to hamstring us for years.
Our opinion is that it was more than a mean streak that caused her to resign as DNC junior chairman at the worst possible time for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party in general. Many different factors were involved, most notably The Wikileaks dump of hacked data from the DNC’s email servers had just happened, and the Bernie or Bust lunatics were rioting in the streets of Philadelphia, over illegally acquired and hacked emails proving that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz resented Bernie’s inability to file out basic FEC forms correctly.
Tulsi said she was resigning in disgust, a double whammy for her. Not only did she get to damage her fellow Democrats, she gained millions of hardcore Bernie or Busters in the process. They think she’s one of them, even though more reputable leftist publications like Jacobin Magazine have also tried convincing them repeatedly. One article of theirs I would was titled “Tulsi Gabbard Is Not Your Friend.” They had no more success than we have.
It’s not that often that the socialists and I can come together on anything, but so far as Tulsi goes we’re riding in the same boxcar.
We have got her back- just as we’ve got Joe Biden‘s, or Beto O’Rourke‘s, or Al Franken‘s. We’ll stand for any of them other than Tulsi and the Bern, two disingenuous libertarians only in the race to sow dissent and chaos. That sort has always hated people like Kamala Harris because she’s strong and black and female. They did the same thing to Joy Reid, whose defense we also took the torch for. Remember this, Bernie Bots?
We do. And we will never, ever forget it. Progressives, lol. If this is progress, give me the Stone Age back.
According to the lawsuit, filed by lawyers representing Gabbard’s campaign Tulsi Now Inc., Google suspended the Gabbard campaign’s advertising account for several hours during the first Democratic debate. “On June 28, millions of Americans asked Google about Tulsi Gabbard,” the mournful wording went, “and Tulsi sought to answer them. But Google silenced her.”
In response, Google says “automated systems that flag unusual activity on all advertiser accounts — including large spending changes” were to blame for the suspension of Gabbard’s account. Google says their automated systems aim to “prevent fraud and protect our customers.”
“In this case, our system triggered a suspension and the account was reinstated shortly thereafter,” said Google spokeswoman Riva Sciuto. “We are proud to offer ad products that help campaigns connect directly with voters, and we do so without bias toward any party or political ideology.”
Now, who to believe? Analytical tools on Twitter have shown tens of thousands of fake accounts swarming on her handle. This is her M.O. Check out that picture. Every little dot represents another one. It looks like a grand fireworks finale.
This is all a result of the Citizens United ruling allowing the use of dark money in politics. Now private empires like the ones put together by the infamous Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries can spend nine-tenths of a billion dollars to hoodwink and influence us.
The thing about their strategy is, it’s completely common sense. What would you do, if it was your billion dollars, and your goal is to control the nation’s data flow- which is to say, its people? Would you really only support one side, and not try to influence the other? Did not Lenin say, The best way to control the opposition is to lead it yourself? It’s a football strategy, really; pretty basic stuff. They’re playing both the ends against the middle.
This is the libertarian way. Ask Rupert Murdoch, the billionaire owner of Fox News. Or his friend, Australian mining magnate Gina Rinehart, and many others too. Sheldon Adelson, Robert Mercer. Richard Mellon Scaife, the mean alcoholic billionaire who funded the Arkansas Project to destroy Bill Clinton’s life for some random reason, they all do this and they’ll continue to as long as it works. It’s a strategy.
That’s what I’d do.
I’ve found myself thinking a lot about the Koch brothers recently, ever since I happened to read that David was unexpectedly, and after all these years, pushed out by his older brother, Charles, notorious eminence grise of the American political scene. It seemed surprising to me, not something I’d expected in any way. These guys should have it all right now. The Tea Party destabilized the Republican Party, and made it ripe for the capture of Trump. Now there’s a radical faction in the Democratic Party, too, an insurgent campaign against the center.
A New Republic article from 2014 called “GOP Death Watch: The Final Days of the Republican Party” pointed out that the big advantage the Democrats had back then was that our radicals had no part in our power structure (radicals should never have any power), whereas the Republican Tea Party was making it too difficult for the old guard, the John McCain style Republicans, to keep any order or unity among themselves.
They were all the way up in Bernie, even his campaign manager Tad Devine. He was Paul Manafort’s lead attache in Ukraine back during the Orange Revolution, and he was the first witness called at Paul Manafort’s trial because he worked for Manafort in Ukraine, as did Rick Gates, the first witness to crack to Robert Mueller.
Catch that. Three of the top strategists opposing Hillary Clinton in 2016 had been doing Vladimir Putin’s bidding in this capacity for longer than a decade.
How much more obvious can you get? It goes without saying, of course, that Putin is the biggest libertarian of them all. He is the head, the rest are the tentacles. Julian Assange of Wikileaks, who dumped the DNC emails, is a libertarian, too. They’re all in on it together! It’s on the front page of every newspaper, every day. Most Americans know this stuff instinctively, deep down in their hearts, along with something else:
Somehow, somewhere, their plans went horribly astray.
The feeling I’m getting from the world right now is that of great and utter tension. It does not have the feeling of being scripted anymore. It’s like it’s taken on a life of its own like an avalanche. They’ve lost control, and only Putin’s got the gambler’s nerve to enjoy it. He knows full well how little of Russia truly takes place under his will or even say-so. They know to shut up and go about their business in that part of the world; no one can take that away from them. Their muteness speaks for all of humanity on this one.
Tulsi Gabbard is not someone to trust, in our opinion. She’s just in it to deal out some cheap shots, leave some permanent, rankling schisms behind her, and run away chortling to plan out her next Tuggle Snuggle, horrid black widow that she is. Truly, she is a worthy successor hamstringer to her master the Bern. Her trolls are uglier than his, and I never thought I’d say that about anyone.
Going forward, it’s important for us to be especially mindful about who we support, and who we don’t support. Real Democrats are loyal and they know how to work with a team. They stay in the sane center, they pay heed to reality and the requirements of the position, and they don’t throw away their advantages by getting hasty. They corral resources, shore up trenches, dig their foxholes deeply and well- and above all, keep their own backyards clean of libertarian fakirs like the Tuggler. Gabbard, you are the one who is unqualified. If you want to throw reviles around, look in the mirror. You’ll see trouble with a surfboard gazing back at you.
First they came for the Communists, wrote Pastor Martin Niemoller during the grotesque misery that was the Third Reich, and I did not speak up, because I was not a Communist. That’s not the end of the poem, of course, but most of you will already know that. It’s been used so often in the last three years that it’s almost become a cliche. Just the same, it’s really been on my mind the last few days, as Donald Trump’s wicked attacks on the four Democratic congresswomen, that being Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, alternately flip-flops and intensifies.
I have been thinkhe poem’s very last line.
“Then they came for me. And when they did, there was nobody left to speak up for me.”
We’ve all got to learn from history.
Taken from this angle, it becomes clear this is not purely altruistic. It isn’t just about Representative Omar and the others- who are all nonwhite women, by the way, always favored targets of the Donald Trump variety. They have faced terrible odds to get where they are, and that is commendable. There is no question they ought to be safe in speaking their minds! To #StandWithIlhan is to stand for the rights of all humans this time. If we let them send her back, what will we ourselves deserve if and when the going gets rough? It’s unthinkable to leave her to her fate.
For one thing, she’s a human being. She’s received a massive spike in death threats since Trump pinned that awful video on hisYou don’t turn your head when somebody’s in trouble. For another, she’s a Democrat. Until we’ve got reason on a Tulsi Gabbard-level to assume she’s just controlled opposition, she’s one of us. Even if she is a terrible pest (which is only about half true, she is much less shrill than Ocasio and still eloquent), we’ve still got to have her back. It’s about us all when it comes down to it. This is about loyalty, national honor, freedom. Can we be outspoken in this country and have our voices duly heard? Can we disagree without deporting one another? Are we really going to let a big orange demagogue make us forget that in America, we fight just as hard for an opponent’s right to say something dissident as we would for our own?
That’s what it means to stand for a principle such as freedom to speak freely. To fight hard on behalf of those who annoy you, to stand up for people when it’s hard, may not be peaches and cream- but it’s necessary.
So here I am, speaking up for the socialists, even though I am not a socialist, against something that a socialist state would do to me.
Doggone it, man.
When this whole thing came to a head, when Trump’s lunatic supporters started chanting “Send her back!” I took a long, tired sigh, and shook my head glumly. Man, oh, man, I thought, repulsed and dejected. After all the swearing to God and chanting muttered mantras vowing I wouldn’t, here I am just the same, going back on my word completely, because I really have to have to stand for good old Ilhan, again.
How many times is this going to happen? I can’t believe I’m having to do this. Omar has muddied our pond quite habitually by now. After last week, when she and the other socialists voted together in a bloc to deny children toothpaste, I felt completely used. I swore that I would never defend her again. We stood for Ilhan before, after all, the actual day she blew her smokestack with her comments about September in 2001.
I was in New Jersey on that dark backward abysm of a day. On top of a mountain where on clear days you could see right into New York City across the Bay. On 9/11, it was clear as an unmuddied lake, or an azure sky of deepest summer, even with all the smoke. We all sat there silently for hours that day, praying they could somehow save at least the building, it was not to be. We had nothing but each other that day, all but two of us had been strangers before, but afterwards our bond was thicker than a sad, mute despair as we watched the towers fall together.
My dear friend’s fiance was on the top floor and he lost her within seconds. Hearing her refer to the worst day in America’s history so cavalierly made me wonder if she wasn’t really a terrorist, and even when I was satisfied through research that was a slander and told everyone so in my first #IStandWithIlhan article, but’s not like she appreciated it. We gave her a chance the first time, we cheered her victory which took place in the Year of the Democratic Woman, we even ignored her repugnant involvement with the Democratic Socialists and hailed the entrance of a new Millennial Democrat onto the stage of current events in politics. But she keeps on blowing it. With her votes, and with her mouth. “Some people did something” is not the way to refer to 9/11 inside the borders of America. I doubt I was disgusted less than Trump himself was, as the sound of that, but that is not the point. I will still fight for her right to disgust me just as hard as I would my right to disgust myself- like I’d do if I said nothing here and let the Trump crazies do whatever they want.
The strategy Trump is using is pretty basic, actually, it’s the well-worn Remington of Evil Politics textbook tactics- the old Divide and Conquer trick. He knows his base truly hates Omar, almost as much as they hate Ocasio-Cortez. They don’t just dislike these women, or find them pesky (like when Ocasio-Cortez stages a protest in Nancy Pelosi’s office over climate change which we were doing anyway). They hate them. And some of them wish to do violence to them. I’ve seen and heard things on Facebook you wouldn’t believe. We had a guy come on our Facebook Page one day and say “Understand this Democrats. If Trump gives the order I will kill as many of you as I can.”
You can see I too have had to deal with death threats- not to mention more than half a thousand attempts to hack our blog out.
That is what we live with, Americans. That is what we live with, world. Threats of gang-rape, attempts to use doxing by finding our people in real life to lay in wait for them, even people coming to our houses. Taking pictures of our pets. Writing ugly letters to our loved ones! There is absolutely nothing these people will not stop at, and it’s best not to kid ourselves that they’re all just blowing smoke. Remember that James G. Hodgkinson who shot Steve Scalise a few months after Trump took power? He was a crazed Bernie or Buster! We had mutual friends on Facebook.
Trump’s singling out of Omar, in particular, is dangerous because of all the Islamophobia over the last twenty years and before. His twisting of her words out of context puts her actual life in peril. They might kill her over this. Black and white lives have been taken for this kind of thing many times. Most of us remember who John F. Kennedy was; a guy named Martin Luther King Jr. comes to mind as well. I have always hoped to come together with Trump supporters on the need for stopping the spread of socialism, but now they have gone way too far with it. Someone could get killed here. A friend of mine pointed out that Ilhan Omar doesn’t have the kind of security Hillary Clinton does. She’s gotten multiple death threats made against her already. They spiked massively In Trump’s world, where he and his money are untouchable, consequences don’t seem very real. The guy lives in a bubble made of excessive wealth and dementia. He has to be stopped.
I struggled with this. This group of people has given me absolutely no end of trouble. At first, it was just policy points we disagreed on, but soon I came to realize the differences were far more irreconcilable. Socialism is a plague. They’re Bernie Sanders people, and Bernie’s the reason Trump won in the first place. Ever since 2015 they have viciously attacked both us and me personally- and it’s creepy how every time I write an article criticizing the Bern Chinese hackers come in the night and try for many hours to take our site offline. One girl, a charming young thing called Crystal Sproul, said that she and my other millennial peers were all going to get rid of me and “Continue berning your party to the ground.” It does not fill my heart with joy to have to stick up for them.
But that’s exactly when doing it full-hearted really counts.
Omar and I may well disagree on just about everything. But it’s still not right to say nothing while Trump goes around stirring up his people against her. When you go down that road, you’ll end up in the council-fires of the Nazis. An American Dachau is not something we can tolerate, even for those who want to go around lighting things on fire and berning them.
It is sometimes very hard to be part of a team. I wonder if Representative Omar wouldn’t agree. You want to stand by your own principles, but still use what little power you do have to help people out and raise awareness with, that’s what power is for. If Nancy Pelosi, who like Odysseus has been harried for years on end by the freshmen antics displayed by these women, can forgive them for the sake of decency and for the party, so can I. Therefore here we are, standing with Ilhan- again.
The disaster caused by the illegitimate 2016 election has widened like the crack in a dam during the Donald Trump era, and people all over the world are feeling the pressure. A radical tide has swept over the whole planet, attacking like a hydra from all over the political spectrum, and the only thing holding it back is the strength of what has always been the bulwark of democracy on Earth, the United States of America.
But they’ve got their guy in charge of it, right now. We’re in trouble. Bad trouble. Readers of this blog will not need to be told.
Lack of cooperation between the various segments of the left not only lost us every branch of government in 2016, which was bad enough. It also left the door open for all kinds of infectious diseases and poisons to wander in. We have staved this off so far because we Democrats have had one big advantage. We have always had a good, solid moderate core in the center of the Party dedicated to its upkeep and maintenance, and so we have achieved strength through our unity even in the two years we had no power. That is being challenged by the beginning of factious, tangled wrangling between supporters of one or the other candidate.
This cannot be allowed.
In many ways, I consider this to be the most important article I’ve ever written. This is a call to every remote reach of the world, a shout out to any and all Democrats on Earth, and it is coming from the gut like nothing I’ve ever felt in my whole life. Every cell in my whole body agonizes for it. Please understand and come to realize.
Democrats must come together. Now.
Unity is our last best hope. Without it, we may very well lose everything. We could be flat on our backs for the rest of our lives, and subsequent generations of our children would be born into something like slavery. For the love of all creation, for the love of the whole human race, and for the love of love itself, help us to keep this 2020 presidential race a good one.
We are not enemies, it’s just the opposite. We are a family. We must become one in spirit and resolve. The requirements of the position demand it. The consequence of failure is defeat.
The 2020 presidential election has taken on an apocalyptic significance. American democracy is at risk of dying. In many ways, Trump himself has proven a bit of a softy, much more bluff than bluster, but his friends are completely vicious and he can’t stand up to them. He is the weakest president we have ever had in terms of foreign affairs.
At this year’s G20 Summit, the third one we’ve had the miserable honor of covering in the Trump era, he joked around with Vladimir Putin of Russia regarding their hacking of our election on his behalf. Putin looked absolutely proud of him, loving almost, as if he were gazing on the form of a beloved pet. “Look at him! Isn’t he a good dog? Look at all the tricks he can perform, right on command!”
Sigh. Trump may indeed be weak, but he has got some very rough customers for friends. We have the resources to fight back. But we are in danger of losing them. We will lose them for a certainty if we don’t stand together.
Here at Millennial Democrats, the choice appears extremely clear and obvious, as obvious as the big blue link above.
We’re going to stand behind them ALL. With everything we’ve got.
Democrats, we have to be ready to support the whole Big Five with equal fervor. We all have to be really careful here because if we mishandle the position in next year’s presidential election, in the four years to come after we will get wiped right off the board. We have nothing except each other, and that has always been enough, especially since we all have had the morbid pleasure of running into Trump and Bernie trolls and Russians and bots. Any of these people would be good at the job and a giant-worlds-away leap better than Trump or the Bern, Russian cutouts that we consider them to be. We’ve been saying this all along. All we have to do is keep walking in a straight line. Forward Together.
We have to embrace and get to know every one of these people, who are good people and worthy ones to the woman and man. We’re going to have our picks, that’s only natural, and that is fine. Just don’t get ugly about it and descend into bitterness and acrimony. Democratic solidarity is the final weapon we have.
Remember when we succeeded in pressuring Trump into reopening the government after the #TrumpShutdown? What a great day that was. Roger Stone got arrested, and as one organism we rejoiced. “Why are they (Democrats) always so loyal?” he bemoaned afterward, tail between legs and licking wounds. We pulled that off because we stuck together.
We have got to preserve that solidarity if we want to continue on our path to victory- and salvation.
The Democratic Party is our only hope. We are carrying the torch for the light of freedom everywhere. It will fall in a day if we give up. We have to remind ourselves of that as many times as it takes. We have got to follow this thing through to the end. In regards to the 2020 election, that means we’ve got to take the part of every one of our Big Five, these familiar dear good leaders who we all have known for years. They are all worthy and capable enough to run the country. We’ll take any of them because we’re tired of the horrible Trump era! We’ve got little kids in dog cages on our Southern Border, and there’s no one who can save them except us. This is a crisis of more than material resources. This is about the country’s soul.
It’s time for some real talk, and I hope everyone hears me. This is only partially about us. Even us millennials- who, I’d like to remind everyone, is no longer the youngest generation of voters- are going to be gone in a few decades and all that will remain of any of us will be the work that we did for the cause.
We are going to be judged by the quality of that work. Future generations will either revere or revile us. In the end, there is no fate but what we make.
Speaking as a private citizen, love for the cause is why I do this. The sheer importance of it is too big to contain with words; I’ll just say it is why I will be here to the end. The cause, per se, is to advocate for the future wellness of the world and human race, including every one of us ourselves. Those are all that matters, and we’re the only ones fighting for them. Once again. We cannot drop the torch.
The cause right now means getting rid of Donald Trump, and that goal alone is where our loyalties lie, not merely in the persons of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. They have shown up as our leaders, and we are grateful for all of them, but at the end of the day, it’s the good old code of American decency that governs us. We will support those who champion our values, and loyalty ranks high among them, so please do be forewarned. We will fight as hard as we can against those who refuse not to get aggressive.
If for your own reasons you really cannot stand one or all of these candidates, but you still are a good Democrat who perceives how unbelievably critical it is to bring the curtains crashing down on the Trump era next year, if you really want to support just your pick, I get it. No worries.
Just please don’t go on the attack. It’s exactly like our mothers used to tell us, cliche or not. If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all.
The Big Five will remain so until well into the primaries next year, and during the interim, we need to have good things to say for every one of them, even if we’re currently competing. You don’t hate your opponent in chess. You shake hands both before and after the game because your opposition is momentary. You will be united all your life by your mutual love of the craft. We all share the same values, and we all serve the same cause. So in the name of that cause we hold sacred in our hearts, we must now commit to forging ourselves into one.
Every Democrat must stand firm with every other Democrat, and more now than ever before, for the moment of greatest peril is upon us. The reason why is as simple as it is profound.
In order to survive, we have to.
We are living in a political landscape that is currently dissolving, and as it does every day presents new questions, fundamental and human in their nature, some completely new. As they do, we need to separate, observe, and classify them. Dissolution in chemistry means the breaking down of complex compounds into their basic particles. Scientists use this technique as a way to collect feedback and data based on the contents of the issue, and that’s exactly what we have got to do. All of us, not just this or that candidate’s supporters. We have to sort out what kind of a position we are dealing with before we can chart a good strategy, and that is going to take us all.
This is why we need philosophy, as an aside, Republicans like Tomi Lahren who keep cursing it like animals on Twitter, but then again, you already know that. That’s why you’re attacking these programs now at colleges. A University System in Wisconsin recently in the town of Stevens Point became first in the country to eliminate history from the roster of viable degrees. That is a disastrous indicator for the future of our species.
Wisconsin was settled by Germans, a people that produced the philosopher Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Hegel, who said history was of the highest importance to a people of high civilization. Like Ronald Reagan, that great man is rolling in his grave to see what his ancestors are up to. He’s at the Headbanger’s Ball down there, and all because you Republicans are inflexible morons. We can count on you for nothing, and we know it.
Republicans of the John McCain mold have gone the way of the dinosaurs; most of those who had honor in 2016 are now Democrats. They have joined our ranks and we thank heaven for them, but for all those to be counted in their number, it seems like Trump has co-opted three more. Again with the hydra analogy. Hercules, at least, ought to be pleased.
It’s on us alone, Democrats. If we forget the past again, we have lost. We cannot drop the torch. We’ll just keep saying that, over and over. We cannot give up, and we cannot drop that torch. Not if the Red Sea should close around us. We have to hold the line no matter what. We’ve got to learn to be that rock in the river. Society itself may have to use us for mooring by the end. We must be ready.
Ethical, strategical, psychological problems are already arising every single day, and they will multiply like flies as this goes forward. Some of these may be completely new, and very difficult. Sometimes we run into a problem which is all three, like a recent one about candidates and what we will or won’t post about them. These questions involve the heart and soul of the Democratic Party itself, and we have to guide it because that’s who we are. Like chess, there are levels of difficulty engaged in the solving of these puzzles, but no matter what they are we have to manage it somehow.
If we do not, we will never defeat Donald Trump.
To us, and us alone falls the unenviable task of holding the center through the biggest moral crisis this country has faced since the Civil War ended. The Trump era has been a continuous disaster, an insult and an assault on. If we don’t find a way to get rid of him next year- if we, in the center, at least- don’t learn the terrible lesson of 2016 and stand together now, we may never stand up again.
Trump will have every reason to kiss the impediment of our current liberal government system goodbye. Being a third term president would for him be the safest option. He must know this better than anyone. He talks about it all the time.
What do you suppose he had to say? One doesn’t suppose it was a paraphrase from Braveheart. I doubt anyone said a word for freedom that day. This is not a game.
We know the far-right libertarians have hated the government that can regulate them all along, guys like the Koch Brothers and Vladimir Putin, the latter of which caused a stir just this week about how “liberalism” (meaning democracy) has “outlived its purpose”.
We can’t count on Europe saving us, either, they’re in a death-struggle with the New World Order section of the global elite themselves. Marine Le Pen has been leading Macron in the polls in France, in Germany Angela Merkel- the de facto leader and torchbearer of the free world since Hillary Clinton was robbed in 2016- cannot live forever. Britain is in crisis thanks to Brexit years later with compliments to their very own alt-right chefs.
The alt-right has cooked up a hefty pile for the final third of the states on Earth to still remain (mostly) democratic. Our allies overseas will be lucky to save themselves.
Democrats, we all but stand alone, even now, against a rising tide that threatens to engulf us all in earnest. We are the only ones left who have the power to resist and hold it back. Knowing this in our hearts, as we all do, will we stand as a nation undivided? Will we fight for liberty and justice for all? Or will we close our eyes and play make-believe like children, squabbling like rabble in the moments before our heads go under?
Dictatorships using tenets of both fascism and socialism have supplanted democracy everywhere. It’s us and a few embattled others overseas who are still carrying the torch for the light of truth and freedom.
We simply cannot drop that torch.
We cannot give up now. We have got to stay the course to the end or succumb to a dark and bitter fate. We will be powerless spectators as they do whatever awful things they want. We are going to lose absolutely everything. We tried to warn the Sanders cult of this in 2016 and they did not listen.
If we make that same mistake, we drop the torch.
If the Democratic Party descends into squabbling now, there is no way to prevent this unthinkable horror. Our solidarity is our only hope because superior numbers are the only resource that we have. If we descend into fractiousness and squabbling, we might as well throw that torch in the toilet.
We’ll be lost worse every day. We will not have anything to fight back with. A thug class like the ones the Nazis had will grow strong enough to suppress all of us, and they will do so under the aegis of legality. History has shown us before that the right will stop at nothing to maintain a position such as this once they have got it. There is no way to overstate the case as to how bad it could be.
We really need to think about the Holocaust.
Our numbers are stretched already, thin and sparse, like a Russian grocery store. Every time one of us throws their hands up in frustration and surrenders, the problem gets worse, as do our chances of coming out of this with a country we can all be proud to live in. Make no mistake, either. If democracy falls here, it will fall elsewhere, and within a span of time that is likely to shock us, all that we hold sacred will be gone. It will melt into the night, like the state of East Germany.
Remember when we pressured Trump into reopening the government after the #TrumpShutdown? That was necessary big time and only made possible by those who remained true blue. All of us suffered great stress and anxiety, and many suffered worse. For the sake of an angry whim, and for the longest period in American history we lost five billion dollars.
Coincidentally, five billion was the exact sum we wouldn’t give him to build his moronic wall with.
His pettiness knows no bounds, he’s got the most dangerous friends there are, and he talks like he’s in early-onset dementia. Who knows what he might do given four more years unrestrained? We’ll be giving him a free hand if we all go to war with one another.
Conversely, and objectively speaking, look at all we’ve accomplished in the last two and a half years when we’ve stuck together! Democratic dedication in the age of Trump has accomplished miracles. It’s no small list, especially considering the Republicans were left in control of all three branches of government for four-fifths of that time.
We hit them hard last year with a massive Blue Wave, retaking the House and staving off a net loss in the Senate, even though we had twenty-five mostly red state Senators up for election and they had only eight.
As always, we stood with ourselves alone, arrayed in ragged armor for the battle of speaking truth to power.
We raised awareness about former Alabaman judge Roy Moore‘s awful past as an alleged serial rapist, and kept him out of the Senate, and replaced him with worthy Democrat Doug Jones, the first time any Democrat had held a seat there in several decades- although that raises yet another example. Time passes fast, and Moore is running again and doing just as well as he did before- just like Marine Le Pen, rising in the polls against Macron in France.
We’ll have to hold the line again on all this stuff very soon.
We can’t do that if we don’t observe one critically fundamental rule- Democrats do not attack Democrats. If the partisan fighting over who’s going to be the one in 2020 is allowed to keep intensifying, far too many of us will lose sight of that. We can’t afford it. We have to put out these fires wherever we see them if we want to save the forest.
As an aside, and for the sake of clarification, now seems a good time to remind ourselves that Bernie Sanders has not ever for a minute of his life been a Democrat, which utterly excludes him from this statement. We consider him an adjunct of Putin and Trump; see the link above if you need to know why. Tulsi Gabbard’s a deal-breaker too, for reasons of foreign corruption and cult membership, but we’ll have to cover that another time. Anyone else we will fight for as hard as we can.
It is along these lines that our new strategy was conceived. From this day forward, our mission is simple. To stamp out the fires of bitter faction wherever it rears its ugly head, and not by yelling and blustering, but with reason and kindness and understanding. The sword of truth is forged in debate and whetted by discourse, and dissent is the highest form of patriotism, which means we need to be having these discussions.
They will help us improve the final quality of our platform, a full half of how we’re going win the people back from the ogre Trump. But they’ve got to be debates and not Royal Rumbles. Unlike Fox News, our goal is not to compete with other cable stations, but to find new ways to do good for the people of the world. That always has been and always will be the sole purpose of this organization. It’s right out there on our Home page. Check it out.
If any of you Democrats, our readers out there, should happen to disagree, I encourage and even implore you to write in so that we can begin to talk it out. If you feel like there is something so critical that it’s worth breaking our fellowship over, then hadn’t we better talk it through? In order to begin to find some kind of solution, I need to hear what you guys think the crux of the problem is, and what you think we ought to do about it.
We have to find common ground before it is too late.
We need each other desperately, and that means we need to inspire and uplift each other, regardless of what candidate you’d like to see win the chance to compete in the biggest election in the primary. These candidates and us, their supporters, have got to keep their eye on that 2020 ball to the point where we become an indivisible mass again.
Again, remember the Blue Wave, less than a year ago, when all of us were united and resolved on standing behind whoever won? It was the only light there has been since this thing started, and together we preserved it. Alone we are nothing, but together, we are invincible, and we need to be.
Who else but we Democrats are so determined to carry the torch for health and truth, in the face of these looming new Dark Ages? Who else will lift a hand in staving off the fall of our world order? The others are taking sledgehammers to it, and Russia’s laughing all the way to the Iron Throne.
We would all of us be going into the dark. Together at last.
I’ve been thinking a lot about St. Augustine, the bishop of North Africa’s final Christian community, the Roman town of Hippo. He gave his life in defense of his city, an impossible task that he attempted anyway. His sacrifice has echoed through all generations to come.
Imagine how it must have been in those blasphemous horrid days. The year 400 A.D., Rome falling, disarray descending like an endless blanket of the chaotic, starless night everywhere that any eye can see. In the midst of it all, besieged and cut off on all sides, the small town of Hippo held the last torch that burned on the planet for truth in the hands of St. Augustine, the town bishop, no trained warrior at all. Determination and powerful faith gave his great heart an unshakeable resolution.
In the name of the same cause we all are fighting for, knowing there is no future but what we make, he determined to resist the coming hordes to his last breath, which he did.
Hippo stood before it fell, but fall it did, and in the final fracas Bishop Augustine was killed, murdered in the gutter by that era’s Bernie Bots and MAGA ravishers. But in the end, his victory reigned supreme. He was immortalized by his courage and was christened a saint. His example will stand as an inspiration to the final generations of mankind, and those who stood by him will be remembered and honored for their courage. When the stuff came down they held the line.
For the people of Hippo, the fight was unwinnable from the start, and after the city fell the final torch went out. It was not to be relit in Europe until the eleventh century, and the Dark Ages in between endured for three times the current lifespan of America. But it burned so brightly before the end that God himself must have seen it, and been proud. The story endures as a different kind of fire.
Augustine is a personal hero of mine and I refuse to shame his memory. I will carry that same torch through any storm I have to because that is what is needed. Our situation is far from as dire as unfortunate Hippo’s. At this time we can still win, and we must.
Refusing to give in to vicious cults, made up of sick members of global elites, is engraved in Democratic DNA by this point. We have guarded our gate now for a hundred years, fighting daily for progress and the people. The most vigorous political action has been needed to sustain us on our journey. It will always be needed. An active, informed citizenry must be present if freedom is to survive.
I remember how crushed I was the night of the election when it was read out to all of that HRC had officially been robbed. Distraught and furious, I felt like a wounded animal and lashing out in anger was all I wanted to do But my mentors rescued me from my own worst tendencies. They so fiercely demonstrated to me, in the beginning, their willingness to grimly fight on that my fury had been soon replaced by hope.
They taught me what it means to be a Democrat. Decency, loyalty, and love. Not cruelty and viciousness. Those are the arts of the enemy.
Where I had been floundering in despair, they had been keeping cool, waiting with the patience of hunters for their moment to strike back. Plan B was formed in an instant, and soon I realized there were about sixty-five billion more plans after that, to be rock-souped on a dime when the situation called for it, cooked up by all the Pattons I’d been given as my teachers. They took a lot of time with me.
What heroes. You folks know who you are.
I’m the young guy who’s always hung out with all the older guys (kind of weird, to see myself becoming the older guy myself! Time to grow up!) so baby boomers have always been among my best friends. They come kick it with people of all ages. We all get on well for the most part and we get a lot of work done, together. They’re all old tigers, like General Alfred Joffre of France, who spared his country a defeat in WWI with his cool head and his counterattack. The Miracle of the Marne was brought about by men who are in the same position as us people of every gender.
I thank God for the dear good baby boomer generation, our parents who saved us from the draft, and who showed me the way to the only truth I know: No good Democrat could ever quit at a critical juncture such as this. When we’re needed to answer the call to such a dramatic extent, we show up, just like our parents did before us. They made the Greatest Generation proud. Now it’s our turn to do the same for them.
So long as the United States are united, surrender is out for Democrats- and make no mistake, having no discipline and attacking each other like beasts are the same as surrender or worse. Our souls recoil from the very idea, abomination as it is. We are not going to give over to the same darkness that brought us sadly here.
The 2020 Democratic candidates must become one.
I am counting on you all out there to help me help our leadership to Make America Sane Again. Resisting internecine rivalry is no longer an option, but a survival-based imperative. We have got to start talking to each other, especially those who have already decided on a 2020 pick.
Again, our Big Five at this time are Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. We have good things to say about every last one. We have got to get together and form a plan, and that means starting a discourse. Please feel free to invite us as mediators. We love all of you. God, I could not mean that more. This is our country and we are all countrymen (forgive the gender reference; countrypersons doesn’t quite have the same ring.)
A discourse works best when there are people involved who are deeply committed to the results. The requirements of the position mean we all have to be both passionate and flexible in regards to their own position. We need every single one of you, and losing you is a tragedy every time. So please, Democrats. Hold the course. We know what the risks in losing are but look at our reward for winning too. Democracy itself might survive because of our efforts. Our torch will keep on burning through this whole mess, because of you personally.
Stand behind all Democrats. If you do exactly this, we’re sure to win. But if they manage to divide us, they will conquer. We’re not about to let that happen.
For country, Party, God by all his great Names and St. Augustine, I am going to be there, and when I go I am going to kick the hell out of the wicked insane opposition and have some fun while doing it. You’ll be with me, and I’ll be with you, and we’ll be two fish of many in an ocean of deep blue.
I believe in my heart that at the finish line, almost all of you will be there with me. We are going to help each other stay calm and to keep all of our heads clear, and together we will hammer out the best way to go with this. In the end, we will have the best available. Trust due process.
During the interim, let’s stick close and tight with everyone. Get in touch with anyone you know who are participating directly in the campaigns of the Big Five. No Bern, who has always been Russian infested, no Gillibrand who stabbed Al Franken in the back, and no Tulsi Gabbard because she’s Tulsi Gabbard. The others are likely to remain obscure. It’s time to start thinning out the herd.
Today’s political reality says to me that it’s time to get behind them all. We need to tell them that they have to become a team. In a perfect world, there would be weekly strategy meetings held with strategists every day until the last day, because all involved would realize that this is only partly about them.
It’s about the cause. What were we saying again, about a torch and maybe not dropping it? That’s likely to be a good decision.
The decision as to who to support in the home stretch would be the same as our own model, to be made by consensus based on pragmatism and data, and all candidates involved would be deeply committed to keeping this match above the belt. They would be doing everything they could to help their supporters realize that any and all of them would be really good. Every single one is worth fighting for, with a full heart and spirit, and helping everyone to keep that goal foremost in mind is what we’re on.
For our part, we’re going to pledge right here and now to fight for all of them, with equal fervor in our hearts. If you will all pledge with us, next year’s victory will be assured, and we can begin the long labor of cleaning up the mess made by the radicals. Going forward, Democrats, please help us spread the word. We want to see a #BlueTeam2020, made up of these five Democrats and everyone else who realizes how needed they are. We are ALL going to take down Donald Trump.
