I'm out on Bloomberg- recent donations to Republicans

Last edited Sat Feb 15, 2020, 07:17 PM - Edit history (1)

On MSNBC itís reported he just recently donated to Republican campaigns to help them get elected

Pat Toomey - Susan Collins - Pete King - Orrin Hatch


I live in PA. Pat Toomey is garbage. I can never support someone who helped elected Pat Toomey.


This guy is not a real democratic candidate. We have plenty of other good candidates. No need to vote for a wolf in sheep cloths

you explained your position clearly in the OP. That included per Toomey. It seems curious that anyone would pretend that you are only telling half the story, then attempt to support that with information about Toomey.

civil liberties will be at risk and so the world.

We need to get back to those candidates who are genuine liberals and progressives.

I don't believe he would win against Trump anyway. I just don't think he would get people excited enough. Everyone who says he's the best chance of defeating Trump, I think they're fooling themselves.

Steyer never donated to Republicans, and he didn't endorse George W Bush, and didn't do stop and frisk, or attack teachers unions, etc.

35. Conceding the moral ground.

 

Iím making a mental note of everyone supporting or defending Bloomberg for when the inevitable time comes that these very same posters want to use the argument that anyone is racist or sexist etc,

To be so easily able to dismiss the factual reports of racism and sexism from Bloomberg because it apparently serves the higher goal of this one particular important election is the ultimate proof of someoneís moral character.

The reason progressives donít get along with moderates is precisely because of something like this Bloomberg predicament, why are moderates ALWAYS willing to concede more and more and more of not only progressive policies but now even the moral convictions we as a party have stood by 50 years?

The worst thing you can possibly imagine happens: Its Nov 3 and its down to Bloomberg vs Trump, "what are you going to do, Jack?".

I don't want another billionaire as a POTUS. BUT I will have no qualms at all voting for Michael Bloomberg and I will support him 100%.

People with qualms gave us Donald J. Trump.

42. Nice try.

 

Iím making a list of people who show no shame in being hypocritical on issues of racism and sexism when it comes to Bloomberg for the very next time they decide to make racism and sexism an issue against someone they donít like.

Obviously I will vote for the Democratic nominee, even if hypocritical people force Bloomberg on us as the nominee.

But being forced to vote for him because his direct opponent is Trump is not what we as a party should be forcing down the throats of democratic supporters who have principles and core beliefs about racism and sexism.

43. So you'll cast aspersions at others as hypocrites until Bloomberg is the choice at which ...

 

point its not hypocrisy with you but pragmatics.

We know all we need to know about who said what and when. We all have evolved our stand through the years.

We know who the candidates are and what we really need is an end to constantly repeated snipes and get down to policy and save the invective and moral outrage for Donnie Two Scoops.

I, just like Hillary Clinton worked in our first campaigns for Barry Goldwater.

Now, then: can we just go after Donnie and Mike Pence?

44. We don't need Bloomberg support Bloomberg as the nominee to go after Donnie.

 

Yes we can go after Donnie, but no way should we sacrifice our principles in support of Bloomberg just because he has money to run ads and troll trump.

Accepting and rationalising the countless upon countless racist and sexist quotes and policies from Bloomberg that keep coming to light every day doesnít help us to defeat Donnie, it weakens us because when we give up our democratic core principles in the pursuit of a higher goal, we canít just credibly pick them up when it suits us again and expect to be taken seriously when we call out either racism or sexism in future.
