We don’t have time for this bullshit. I don’t have time for this bullshit. I’m not going to write a big, long screed about how Americans are sick of the same fake two-headed one-party system that chokes Americans to death with neoliberal domestic policies and destroys entire nations with neoconservative foreign policies. Know why? Because someone else already made that argument a lot better than I ever could, and her name is 2016. …
We don’t have time for this bullshit. The US political establishment is pushing as hard as it possibly can toward escalated Cold War tensions with Russia, which are dangerously complicated by hot proxy wars in both Syria and Ukraine, and which are being inflamed by NATO expansionism along Russia’s border. This could all blow up any minute, and America’s unelected power establishment is actively fighting any attempts to de-escalate. Powerful deep state propaganda outlets like the Washington Post, whose sole owner is a CIA contractor, are smearing Trump’s move to stop the CIA from funding terrorists in Syria as a treasonous capitulation to Moscow, while Netanyahu is pressuring the administration to abandon the partial ceasefire it negotiated with Russia in southern Syria. If this does not chill your bones, it should.
We don’t have time for this bullshit. People are desperate, and they’re scared. Something’s going to have to give, and give soon. It’s fucking 2017 and they’re already priming us for the Inevitability of Kamala. They already want progressives debating how many concessions toward social progress they can beg for from the new Anointed Queen, when in the real world people have all got an itchy, peripheral feeling that the end of the world may be near. We need massive, sweeping changes, not some Clintonite who’d look cute dancing on Ellen.
Lots of tweets in the article and a Guardian article that i wish I had seen before comments closed. Not a lot of comments, which is too bad. The most recced ones basically said Caitlin said, as in, “No.”
