36. Sane Progressive - "A TY to the RIGHT Opposing Missile Strikes"

The Sane Progressive was widely posted as progressive voice during the primaries. Yet, here she is thanking members of the "right" (presumably the alt-right) for opposing strikes against Syria:



Now, many Democrats, including Cory Booker, Nancy Pelosi, etc., have opposed such unilateral military action by the President without Congressional approval, but here you have the Sane Progressive thanking members of the Alt-Right.

ALT-RIGHT GOES “APOPLECTIC” OVER TRUMP’S DECISION TO BOMB SYRIA

In fact, Trump imbibed the pro-war Kool-Aid that is the drink of choice in elite circles even faster, to the alt-right’s disappointment. When Trump condemned Assad’s chemical weapons attack on his own people, which killed dozens of children and emergency workers, several of his fringe supporters screamed that he was being duped into a war by a “false flag” operation. “The Syrian gas attack was done by deep state agents,” tweeted alt-right agitator and the Trump administration’s favorite blogger Mike Cernovich. “The fake news media (which works for them) wants you to ignore basic logic and 101-level game theory and strategic thinking to reach an illogical conclusion. Stay vigilant!” Infowars, the site run by extreme conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, took it a step further and blamed the attack on Democrat billionaire George Soros.


Now, I am not making these videos or articles from progressives up. I am simply pointing out that there is a lot of overlap.

Finally, this is not about the Democratic Party. Indeed, many of the progressives I reference would not call themselves Democrats.
