Response to ramen (Reply #80)

Tue Jan 21, 2020, 08:21 AM

81. Yeah, the point is, Democrats disagree on many things.

But if discussion on ONE of those topics is going to push voters away from the Democratic Party, then I have to question just how likely they were to vote for Democrats in the first place. The tactic you used above is very similar to how "the establishment" spoke down to people fighting for civil rights in the 60s. Don't upset people. Don't rock the boat. Your time will come. And so on.

What do you suppose would be the state of civil rights in this country had they listened to those Democrats?
