The establishment Democrats make a big deal about a ‘resistance’ to Trump and how the Democrats need to take over the House and maybe the Senate later this year.
I have many cultural liberal friends on Facebook whose default mindset is to support Democrats. These are good people whom, if I sat down with them and went over issues, would probably agree with me on almost everything. But they are captured by the Democratic Party and get information from them constantly and then repost it.
One friend posted a glowing meme about an establishment supported Democrat running for Congress in Arizona and how she is a point ahead of the Republican. The meme was suggesting we all send money to her. I’d never heard of her. But if you know me that just means I go do my own independent research.
What I found out is that there were several progressive, Our Revolution/Justice Democrats in the primary and the establishment party, in order to support this woman my friend was praising, SUED them for being on the ballot. Yes. They sued them to get them off the ballot.
This is disgusting. I shared the article and my friend was also upset.
Listen. If we support these disgusting Neo-Con, corporate, darlings of the Establishment DCCC in order to resist Trump we’ll end up with a Congress that will give him more authorization to use military force as he pleases, help him deport dreamers, approve his right-wing judicial nominees, and give consent to his warmongering, torture loving, bloodthirsty cabinet choices. But don’t worry, they’ll go on MSNBC to bitch about him all the time and scream “Russia! Russia! Russia!” non-stop. But real resistance? Don’t count on it.
Don’t vote for establishment Democrats, no matter how much party apparatchiks go on and on here about how it’s necessary “because Trump.” Real change must begin with resisting the Neo-Con/Neo-Lib establishment Democrats so we have a real alternative. They’ll tell you we have to be engaged in changing the party but then they’ll bitch at you if you do the only thing that will change it- not vote for the shills of Wall Street and the MIC.
