From the article:
“My desperate, pleading hope is that instead of succumbing to the inevitable pressure from Congressional peers—moderate your rhetoric, ‘get serious,’ don’t criticize the party—she doubles down and keeps kicking ass.”
Historical note: the Tea Party didn’t take over Brand R by “moderating their rhetoric,” being frivolous or withholding their criticism—quite the opposite, in fact. The glaring advantage the Teabaggers had was, of course, a tiny number of hugely wealthy donors with a coherent agenda. The 99%, in contrast, have huge numbers of people who can barely afford to keep smoke coming out of the chimney, and a message that more closely resembles a desperate cry for help.
I can only hope that those who support A O-C can withstand the inevitable attempts to divide, distract and confuse them (a disturbing example of the latter is found in this article, which, while seeming to be in support of Medicare for All, omits any mention of HR 676 in favor of the clearly inferior S 1804. This happens too consistently in this space to be mere errors of omission).
