Silly - stuff
US interests - what are those? liberals have lost their minds
As usual Rostroh's disdain says it all - Common Dreams used to publish him but his common sense is more than the staff can stand.
I have yet to have heard a liberal or Democratic partisan explain what manner of “treason” has been committed against the US electoral system. (Conversely, I can cite at length the Clinton Cartel’s and their operatives in the DNC’s transgressions during their sham of a presidential primary and nomination process.)
Yet they go on and on parroting the same type of Deep State manufactured innuendo and fictions the public has been bombarded with since last summer involving a nefarious Putin/Trump bromance enjoined to undermine US democracy — a disinformation campaign promulgated without a shred of real evidence. Yet (allegedly) well-meaning, (self-proclaimed) nice liberals don't seem to notice — or care — that they have not only sided with and are parroting the propaganda of neocon war mongers, Deep State and National Security State elites, and corporate media congenital liars -- but are cosigning antidemocratic machinations and are supporting a slow motion, de facto coup d’etat attempt.
Yet not much has changed. For example, liberals started and were supporters of the Vietnam War until Richard Nixon became president and it became his war. Moreover, as the Vietnam/Civil Rights eras and the attendant anti-military, anti-racist, pro-justice movements were winding down, liberals proceeded to marginalise the Left, apropos, serving the traditional function of liberals i.e., the protectors of the capitalist elite and the agendas of US imperialism from their left flank.
In the summer in of 1968, liberal politicos ordered cops to beat student demonstrators and leftists in the streets of Chicago during their rigged convention -- and, consequently, nominated a pro-war, Mccarthyite candidate. (Hubert Humphrey purged socialists and communists from unions in Minnesota). (Sound familiar.)
In our time, liberals supported former President Drone von Citigroup's imperialist global-wide aggression, and are, as noted above, the worst promulgators, at present, of the Deep State, Mccarthyite anti-Russia disinformation campaign -- a de facto coup d'etat under way against Trump.
On an historical basis and confirmed by present realities, liberalism and imperialism and capitalism are inextricably intertwined. Liberals, by the very nature of liberalism’s role under the capitalist dictatorship of money and economic and militarist imperium, have never been and will never be allies of the left, minorities or the labouring class. They will always serve as our betrayers.
Moreover, I am talking about the vast majority of liberals — not only Democratic Party and media elites but also smug Daily Kos blogger/reader types/Rachel Maddow viewers and lesser-of-two evil bedwetters as well who vote for and act as apologists for said klavern of corrupt-to-the-core Democratic Party elites e.g., both former and latter acting, at present, as Mccarthyite tools bandying Deep State disinformation about Putin and Trump i.e., giving an object lesson in the manner liberalism is a crucial component in the capitalist/imperialist state.
If the near impossible begins to transpire and protestors who self-identify as liberals begin to resist capitalism and US economic and militarist imperialism — then they can no longer be regarded as liberals, due to the fact, liberals are an integral part of the capitalist structure and the system would not survive long without them. But, as is the case with the historical precedent for the present type of protest movement, the bourgeoisie (Deep State encouraged) consortium of day trippers will return to their precincts of privilege when and if Trump is dispatched, as Nixon was, by the operatives of the Deep State.
Finally, what is masquerading as a resistance movement, at present, is, in reality, the dismal phenomenon of anti-Trump liberals and sore loser Democrats scampering aboard the Deep State/national security state/imperialist juggernaut — and they are being appropriated as wilfully blind tools and useful idiots in an elitist coup d'etat, very much of the kind, if successful, that the US Deep State and EU oligarchs perpetrated in Ukraine. Clue to the fact: True uprisings do not arrive with the restive masses wearing colour synchronised t-shirts and, certainly not, cutesy pie, pink cap-gear, nor treated as precious cargo by the police nor are their protests praised and fêted by establishment mouthpieces e.g., The Washington Post and New York Times.
