And the explanation that this gang of Republican criminals and monsters really feel so free to commit their atrocities so overtly and proudly—the explanation that they boast about it—is as a result of a lot time, cash and energy was expended final time to make it possible for the final gang of Republican criminals and monsters and their media enablers have been by no means dropped at e book for a god rattling factor.

That is why we on the Skilled Left say “Burn Their Lifeboats”.  Why we’re extraordinarily suspicious of Republican By no means Trumpers who would have us consider that one way or the other, after a lifetime {of professional} service within the management of the Republican social gathering, solely observed 5 minutes in the past that their Republican social gathering was stuffed with Republicans.

As a result of if any of the architects of our current catastrophe or any of their media enablers are allowed to flee judgment this time and arrange store as soon as once more, earlier than you possibly can say “The Extremes on Each Sides!” they are going to have scurried by way of the Bush Off-Machine and be proper again in enterprise, rebuilding their usual monster manufacturing facility with the backing of the identical previous plutocrats, promoted by the identical previous media firms and staffed by the identical previous wingnut hobgoblins.



“Nevertheless sugarcoated and ambiguous, each type of authoritarianism should begin with a perception in some group’s larger proper to energy, whether or not that proper is justified by intercourse, race, class, faith or all 4. Nevertheless far it might increase, the development inevitably rests on unequal energy and hermetic roles inside the household.” ~~Gloria Steinem (1980)




At Each day Kos on this date in 2007—An Incomplete Argument:

The Argument: Billionaires, Bloggers, and the Battle to Remake Democratic Politics, by Matt Bai] is an entertaining, usually insightful, and in some cases extremely illuminating examination of the state of the outsider in Democratic politics as we speak. Significantly attention-grabbing for me, since this was all new to my eyes, is his examination of the Democracy Alliance, and the place all that cash is, and is not going. However this blogger goes to concentrate on the half she is aware of finest. And, relating to the blogs, I discovered Matt’s e book frustratingly incomplete in two crucial areas relating to the blogosphere: its slim concentrate on the activist element of the blogs, leaving out the wonkosphere, and that the majority crucial aspect that gave rise to the blogosphere and drove its large and meteoric success–the failure of conventional media in our political discourse.

However let’s begin with the central premise of Matt’s e book: the Democrats lack “the large concept,” and so far as the blogosphere is worried, are extra involved with methods and tactics–with winning–than with creating a philosophy for governing. From my perspective that is an incomplete premise to start with, and Matt’s proof to assist it’s too slim.

Nearly each lefty blogger I do know got here to on-line activism due to their core perception in a historically liberal governing philosophy.
