Here I go, this may be the end of me, but Joe Rogan is not an enemy.

He has made racist comments.

He has made trans-phobic comments as many other stand-ups have, which is NO excuse.

But he is not the enemy, in fact he is very vocally ANTI the actual enemies Rump and Pence.

Bernie may end up the nominee, I doubt it but he may and if that happened we would have to not only vote for him but if Joe brought in some unsavory folks to vote for Bernie, that would be GOOD because the election is about

LIFE

AND

DEATH...

Even though I am known here to REALLY not like Bernie, which is no secret, you will think he was my guy ALL ALONG if he becomes the nominee.

And even though Rogan has punched down with racism and homophobic comments, he is NOT the enemy at least NOT NOW.

Take back the WH and House and Senate, then worry about Rogan and people like him, but for now they are on our side and for now that is EVERYTHING...We better understand that...it is fucking serious like a heart attack actually.

And no, I am neither a POC of LGBTQ, so I understand I cant and wont speak for them, that is NOT what this is. This is

a BINARY time...you are either on our side or on the side of FASCISM AND DEATH.

I am not the enemy either.
ROGAN's endorsement ONLY matters IF Bernie is the nominee...which is the BASIS of my post.

ps

Oh, and the guy who gave Liz shit about tuition free college, FUCK HIM too!


edit

I spend months LAMBASTING Bernie supporters for very obviously putting CONDITIONS on their vote here and elsewhere. All I am doing here is saying the same thing if Bernie happens to be the candidate, we have to put NO conditions on that and accept ALL the help we can get...because, again, the alternative is maybe DEATH.




Conversely I sure hope some BS voters dont condition their vote on the basis of who endorses a candidate other than him...same thing, same EXACT thing...


If a nevertrumper con endorses anyone other than Bernie, for example, because he or she is anti trump; we can almost guarantee such a person has an UGLY history of either being anti minority or wanting to destroy SS and Medicare or both, but if they want to give us MORE votes by endorsing one of ours...OF COURSE we accept it.

Just glad to know that EVERYBODY here agrees that NO MATTER who the

nominee is , whether it is Joe, Liz, Bernie or whoever, they will support that person as if they did all along and consider that person to be just absolutely fucking wonderful!

I am glad NOBODY here disagrees with me!

I mean Social Security...I mean if one candidate said lift the cap and increase the tax slightly, another said no increase in tax but do it some other way while lifting the cap. And the other party says give ALL THE MONEY to their FRIENDS on Wall Street.

Doesnt sound like a tough choice to me.

Dont the dems have a bill now that lifts the cap and slightly increases the employee/employer tax and that if passed would make it solvent for 50 -75 years BEYOND that it is solvent to now, whenever that is?

If this is your message:

"Nominate our candidate or we wont support you"

Then you are no better than the GOP and the KGB and KKK that support them.

What is Andrew Yang history as a registered Democrat?

We know Liz was not always a Democrat, that gets thrown in her face often.

While I dont like Yang as a candidate and he wont be the nominee, anybody know his history?

VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO!

Right?

NO MATTER

Right?


January 16, 2020

The reason you ALL have to vote BLUE no matter who is the other side

doesnt want a democracy.

They dont CARE if the democrat tells the truth, does the right things, they DONT CARE.

They want women and doctors either imprisoned or executed for abortions. Period.

They want all non white, non str8t, non xtian to be DEPORTED. Hell they want many women deported just for having an opinion.

This is REAL...

This is now...

Lots of good liberal talkers like Stephanie Miller being BASHED by that group that supports

that one candidate.






Stephanie Miller is viciously attacked by this group, even though she is one of the finest liberal voices in America. She says they are saying people should not listen to her show, they could kill her career with that GARBAGE.

I tried to warn her 3 yrs ago this would happen. Gonna get worse plus we will see a bunch NOT voting, too...sigh.

Why do they hate Biden so much?

cant find it.

Bernie campaign slams Warren as candidate of the elite

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/01/11/bernie-quietly-goes-negative-on-warren-097594



Sanders volunteers are being told to zero in on the perceived weaknesses of Warren, but also Biden and Buttigieg.


DES MOINES, Iowa — The non-aggression pact between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren is seriously fraying.

Sanders’ campaign has begun stealthily attacking Warren as a candidate of the upper crust who could not expand the Democratic base in a general election, according to talking points his campaign is using to persuade voters obtained by POLITICO.

Story Continued Below
The script instructs Sanders volunteers to tell voters leaning toward the Massachusetts senator that the “people who support her are highly-educated, more affluent people who are going to show up and vote Democratic no matter what” and that “[s]he's bringing no new bases into the Democratic Party.”

Story Continued Below
“I like Elizabeth Warren. [optional]” the script begins. “In fact, she’s my second choice. But here’s my concern about her.” It then pivots to the criticisms of Warren.


Exactly as I predicted...
