13. When I saw a thread in GP-P about 'Cattle futures'--oh yes I did

It went a long way to convince me how thoroughly the Rightwing has infiltrated the left. I abhor conspiracy theory politics, but it's a documented fact that Hillary Clintion has been the target of such attacks for decades. That some on the left not only picks the RW attacks, but enhances them and makes up their own is --disconcerting--

I don't blame the Rightwing for the decisions and opinions of the left. We are presumably compassionate, AND passionately care about the human condition from both social and economic standpoints. We want war to end and the environment to thrive. We want a expanding future for our children's and children's children ect. we want love, peace and happiness and discovery. We want good health. We want freedom of religion or freedom from religion. We want the entire world to thrive thus. This are not just worthy goals, but essential ones.

Yet we see denial of fundamental wrongs. Denial of racism when racism exists. Denial of sexism when sexism exists. Instead of debate, we see defensiveness. Instead of coming together, we let the lies of the right, the misconceptions of the left rip us apart.

This isn't the first time. The very structure of the Democratic Party allows for what is happening, that whole 'big tent' philosophy. What's different this time is back to my original point, how easily some Democrats use and expand on the lies of the right.

Did they really think we wouldn't fight back? Really?
