Response to H2O Man (Original post)

Sun Mar 1, 2015, 11:31 AM

5. It's the "Love it or Leave It", "You're with us or against us", "Not as Bad" wing of the party.

 

And, that wing has been around for as long as I can remember. In '68 they called us Commies, Reds, and Dirty Hippies because we embarrassed The Party by speaking out against the ongoing slaughter in Vietnam and challenged our party to stop the war. The Not as Bad wing chose to continue the war and lost to Nixon. And, of course, blamed us, the Commies, Reds, and Dirty Hippies for the loss.

And, so it has remained.

Forget the wars. Forget the deaths. Forget the torture. Forget the collaboration with the Republicans. Forget the collaboration with the corporations. Forget the pursuit of whistle blowers. Forget the poor. Forget the persecuted. Forget the police state.

Again, we are told to be patient. That the other side is worse.

Again, we are told to shut up and vote for the candidate who can win and ignore their record.

And, again, we are told that "this time it will be different."
