I told him that most of us didn’t want to break the establishment, but it was crammed down our throats. And thanked him.

I enjoyed it. He has a better view of Democrats than most Berniecrats do, but he seems pretty sincere in what he’s fighting for.

Thread. Shahid put it very well.

so this is to inform. it is pretty cringy. Her inability to calmly explain her self and nervousness is not very presidential. And that makes me sad. In another time, she probably would’ve been tapped for VP. maybe still.

It’s a strange world when media like Teen Vogue and GQ offer sensible takes and the WP and NYT offer corporate opinions. Look at this article in GQ:

At a critical juncture before the 2020 elections, the leadership of the Democratic Party is, perplexingly, abandoning key constituencies of its base, including young people, women, and people of color, as well as the policies that fire them up. In chasing a narrow swath of white swing voters, the leadership has ignored a broader coalition of voters who have delivered blue victories time and time again. Not only that—at times, it’s actively antagonizing them.

Even though the multiracial coalition that re-elected Obama in 2012 and stayed home in 2016 was large enough to change the outcome of the election, the Democratic leadership has focused on voters who swung from Barack Obama to Donald Trump. Party leaders have also taken to kneecapping up-and-coming progressives. Earlier this year, the DCCC—the party’s House campaigns arm—announced that it will blacklist firms that work with primary challengers, despite their delivering exciting new talent, reflective of its base, like congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

Teen Vogue has also had some very surprising coverage; I would never have expected to say that, but this year, it’s true.
