Thursday Open Thread | Christmas Jams 2018

Christmas Candles 56Blue Christmas” is a Christmas song written by Billy Hayes and Jay W. Johnson. It is a tale of unrequited love during the holidays and is a longstanding staple of Christmas music, especially in the country genre.

The song was first recorded by Doye O’Dell in 1948,[3] and was popularized the following year in three separate recordings: one by country artist Ernest Tubb; one by bandleader Hugo Winterhalter and his orchestra; and one by bandleader Russ Morgan and his orchestra (the latter featuring lead vocals by Morgan and backing vocals by singers credited as the Morganaires).

    The Pretenders: Bernie Cult’s Seething Contempt for the Working Class

    Bernie Sanders’ most rabid backers are back, and they have evidently decided that Beto O’Rourke, who held Ted Cruz to a less than two-point margin in what we often imagine is a ruby red state, Texas, is the most pressing threat to the 2020 Democratic primary prospects of their cult leader (who is not a Democrat).

    Let me say at the outset that I am not sold on an O’Rourke candidacy in 2020, and were he to run, O’Rourke would certainly not be my first choice. Let me also say that the fact that Bernie’s defenders see a white man, as opposed to others in what is likely to be a field made up of highly successful women and people of color, speaks volume about what kind of individuals Bernie Sanders and his cult see as legitimate candidates, and by extension, legitimate voters.


    The attack on Beto on legislative accomplishments coming from the backers of a man who has been in elected office since the late 1980s and has not passed into law a single significant piece of legislation doesn’t even pass the laugh test, so I’m not even going to try to address that.

    But the more titillating attack, that O’Rourke took money from the oil industry, is a flat out lie. This perverse mental masturbation from Bernie cultists was led by David Sirota. Sirota posted a tweet with data from Open Secrets that appeared to show that O’Rourke was the second largest beneficiary of oil industry money, behind only his Texas Republican competitor, Ted Cruz. Predictably, this caused an uproar among Bernie’s social media cult as well as generated widespread “news” coverage.

    On the non-hair-on-fire side of things, The Daily Banter pointed out that this is these contributions came from individuals, not oil companies or PACs. During the campaign O’Rourke rejected all corporate and PAC contributions. What’s more, of O’Rourke’s impressive $8.7 million haul, only $429,000 came from individuals who work for oil and gas companies, amounting to about 5%.


    With their attack on Beto O’Rourke campaign donors – who are all individuals – Bernie cultists are displaying their contempt for working people. They have one goal – a free ride to the Democratic nomination by capitalizing on white complaints for perceived loss of privilege. If you as an working individual do not fit their mold – whether you are black and live in the “deep South”, you’re Latino and poor and happen to live in a community Bernie likes for dumping ground of Vermont’s nuclear waste, or whether you are trying to make a living in one of the largest industries in your state, they will have no problem viciously attacking you.

    They cannot get away with this.
