While people are arguing over 2 men trying to lead a largely administrative job at the DNC

(yes, i know it has some tactical elements and a huge fundraising component)

The real resistance to Trump is being lead by women.

The stars in the senate right now are Liz Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Kamala Harris who are leading voices against Trump Cabinet nominees.

Sally Yates who refused to defend an illegal exec action.

Gabby Giffords who is shaming GOP to show up to townhalls

Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi in the house trashing Trumps every actions.

Laverne Cox and Janet Mocks who are leading the pushback against this anti-trans regime

Cecilia Richards of Planned Parenthood who is pushing back against more anti-choice legislation.

Not to mention women who marched in the women's march and women leading the pro-science resistance

Hillary was right when she said the future is female.

Naming liberal values after a single politician is fucking weird

i don't know why that is a thing except to keep the infighting in the democratic party going.

I support social justice and economic justice and politicians who can stand up for these values. I don't have Andrew Cuomo values or Bill de Blasio values, they both represent my values in some significant ways.

I have realized I don't give a shit if Ellison or Perez wins the DNC chair job

i had a slight preference for Perez because of his ties to Obama, and I still have a slight preference for him. But I don't really give a shit.

If Keith wins it, good for Keith and I hope good for us too.

What i do care, is people falsely maligning Tom Perez, who is a hardworking, liberal, loyal Democrat. That I care about.

Tom Perez is not (a) neoliberal (b) corporatist and (c) or whatever the fuck establishment means.

And people who malign him as such are lying, dumb, and trying to break apart the Democratic party because they are still butthurt about something.

Every network is showing the picture of Mike Flynn at a Putin dinner

they should point out that Jill Stein is at the same dinner. at the same table.

imagine being dumb enough to vote for her, while throwing out words like 'corporatist' and 'neoliberal' at the rest of us.

tsk tsk.

If HRC was president, we would not be talking about Jeff Sessions as AG

and Coretta Scott King's words would not have been silenced in the Senate.

We would not have confirmed someone for Education Secretary who hates everything good about public education.

Maybe some people need this kind of turmoil to feel woke, but I am woke AF. I don't need other people's rights taken away to feel woke.

Woke = socially aware and active
AF = as fuck

As trump stops refugees from immigrating, let's remember this email HRC sent


How stupid were the #demexit, #jillnothill, #bernieorbust people?

Maybe not stupid at all, maybe just racist and unempathetic. After all it's not like these policies are directly affecting most of them.

It is literally heartbreaking to see the last few days of the obama presidency

I will miss this man and his family, his love of his country, and his grace under such disgraceful obstruction, more than I ever thought possible.

i cannot believe the depth of shit he had to endure without getting any of the shit on himself.

I really hope I live long enough to see another president of this caliber again. I suspect though that this a once in a lifetime type of thing.

I have a lot of empathy and sympathy for working class voters who voted for HRC

in large numbers, of all colors and genders and religions.

I, especially feel terrible for these people who are in red states, and will be hideously affected by a trump presidency.

I have oodles of sympathy that their social security net will be removed, their healthcare may disappear, their job may disappear, and that their air and water will get poisoned.

My loyalties, my feelings, my love and my empathy lies with these people. Good people who stood up against bigotry and economic injustice and social injustice, who will suffer needlessly.

I do not waste my feelings on bigots. I do not waste it on people who did this to themselves.

I want more articles written about these folks.

Do you think if HRC had just focused more on economic justice and not on social justice

Russia would not have intervened in this election?

Comey would not have sent out that letter on Friday before elections cutting her lead from 7 points to 2-3 points?

Just asking for a friend.

Samantha Bee: identity politics is the dismissive term for what we used to call civil rights


“Identity politics is the dismissive term for what we used to call ‘civil rights’ and ‘equality,’” Bee said on her December 12 show. Also, she made sure to add, white and male is an identity, as is being Christian — the two fronts Steve Doocy’s Fox News roundtable and other like-minded media outlets feel are most under attack.

Basically, as Vox’s Matt Yglesias put it: “There is no other way to do politics than to do identity politics.”

What’s more, Bee said, standing up for civil rights can, and did, win Democrats elections. “You know what happens when Democrats stand up for transgender rights? They win,” she said, pointing to North Carolina’s gubernatorial race, which was recently called for Democrat Roy Cooper over Republican incumbent Pat McCrory, a staunch supporter of the state’s discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws.

Also, why i will never trust any Democrat or Du'er who is dismissive about 'identity politics' aka 'social justice issues' etc.
