No matter what anyone says, someone will say, "NO. We must do this other thing first."
Someone will come along and say to you, "That's true, but their struggle has to take a back seat to climate change, which is going to kill us all."
Then someone could say, "Yes, but what about cops who are killing us right now?"
It's really endless, isn't it?
This is how the Left paralyzes itself. People on the Left can't even support women marching against a misogynist. The problem with the Left isn't "messaging" or "framing" or any of the other excuses I've heard for years and years. When people actually try to do something it's never good enough, pure enough, effective enough, Left enough, focused enough, inclusive enough. It goes too far or it doesn't go far enough.
Want to help the poor? Do it. Help them. Don't ask me how. Don't wait for someone else to organize it. Don't criticize others who are trying to fight for something other than your issue. Do it. Help. Whose permission are you waiting for? What perfect set of circumstances need to be in place?
Because the time is never going to perfect, and you're never going to get permission.
People have criticized the marches today, asking where they were when Obama and Clinton were bombing women.
I ask, where were those criticizing? No one prevented them from organizing a peace movement against Obama, right? Where were they?
You're one step ahead of a lot of people. You've found your issue. It's all you post about. Great. Now what? Now just criticize anything that doesn't focus on your issue?
You tell me, @DHFabian.
Since everything else is lacking and everyone else is wrong, now what?
