29. first of all, I reject your labeling of unity as "fascist lockstep"
second of all, I reject the false dichotomy that if we want a dem, it has to be a DINO or a republican.
My alternative is to run progressive dems against DLC dems in primaries.
find out which type of dem the VOTERS want, instead of which kind of dem the DLC wishes to implant.

I agree we must vote together at the polls in the general election, but I've found many yellow dog democrats and DLC supporters keep telling us we need to support ANYONE who calls themselves a dem or else vote for a republican. Anyone can call themselves a democrat, and there have been races where a republican switched parties right before the election.

Do I go to a supermarket and buy any coffee as long as its coffee? Is it ok with you if I read the lable first?

Lastly, a call for unity is fine, a condescending exhortation on how to vote is not.
