Open Thread | Why The Bernie Faction Lost

Just an FYI
Who wins in the Democratic Party is not a matter of chance. It’s a deliberate process.

Excellent thread! If your keyword is “purity” not “pragmatism,” you’re doomed to fail. If you value burning it all down over cooperation and compromise, you never were in it to win but just to make noise. If you think acting as a spoiler is virtuous, well, you’re just rotten.

    A reminder that Prince Harry’s fight is not just for the British. The whole world is infected by the scourge that is the Murdoch press. All of us would benefit from the devil & his minions having their horns clipped. #WeStandWithPrinceHarry #GoodKingHarry #MurdochGutterMedia

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an anti-vaccine proponent who launched a primary bid against President Biden this spring, is doing unexpectedly well in some polls and receiving increasing media attention as a result.

    Pence, like all the rest, has no case. They created the monster, they fed the monster, they gleefully watched & helped the monster grow & destroy everything in its path. And still they defend the monster. And now they want to replace the monster? Why? No. It’s too late.

    Like clockwork since Obama left office there is always a premier Black male entertainer, athlete, or actor that amplifies a Republican candidate in the face of all objectionable policy. In the face of all logic and anti-Blackness. It’s bizarre but repetitive.

    Tim Scott is done done now that Pence is in the race. He will lock up the evangelical republicans who are over Trump. That’s the lane Tim was trying to occupy. Neither will beat Trump but all are dangerous.

    This is really something. The Biden administration just announced new numbers showing border encounters continue to be *down* after Title 42.

    So what are Marjorie Taylor Greene and Republicans doing in response?

    Moving to impeach DHS sec Mayorkas. 1/

    Marjorie Taylor Greene and Republicans were salivating at the prospect of a post-Title 42 migrant surge. Now that it hasn’t happened, they’re simply pretending it has. Indeed, a GOP hearing set for this week suggests they’re likely to impeach Mayorkas. 2/

    Licht is also a case study in white male privilege, as evidenced by The Atlantic profile. Think how impoverished the perspectives in our news are because white men like Licht, Zaslav, and Malone are systematically privileged over others in the news industry.

    Ohio’s Senate president essentially says in this article that Ohio can combat its population loss by a government policy of forcing pregnant women (rape victims included) to give birth.

    He also seems surprised that people don’t like when he says that.

    If Chris Licht quits, CNN will replace him with someone who wants to paper over anti-democratic threats and both-sides the news just like Licht did. The replacement will simply try to do it more subtly.

    Trayvon Martin was called a man; during the trial, they said he was a hulking figure that Zimmerman feared. Trayvon was a thin kid with candy and iced tea. A white perpetrator has more respect than a Black victim.

    The white Buffalo murderer armed with an assault weapon is…

    Prince Harry wins because he took a cold story that was only paid attention to by a few, and made it GLOBAL.

    “It has massive appeal even in America…people who support Harry and Meghan Markle, I think they are called #Sussexsquad…based in the states and all over the world.”

    The number of anti-LGBTQ+ bills signed into law so far this year is more than double last year’s tally. They include pronoun refusal laws, forced student outing laws, anti-drag bans and “don’t say LGBTQ+” laws.
