"Julie's" farther left supports previous Sanders attack dog Nina Turner. 'Nuf said?

It's not just DSA, and there are some decent, thoughtful people still there even after the others flooded in during the 2016 election period. But the others! If you're not 110% with those people, whether LW authoritarians, populists, or ideological extremists, you're the enemy.

(Remember the vicious swiftboating they did on Hillary? Their attacks on John Lewis and other AA just because they endorsed the other candidate, on pro abortion and labor groups just because they endorsed the other candidate? The Bernie Bros and swarming of victims on social media? The "Lock her up!," near riots at state conventions, and attempted election thefts? The constant use of outside big money to try to influence and subvert local elections? On and on.)

Where they are, and can't win because they're always too few (NOT 99%!), the shit flies. As here. SOP.

Meanwhile, Shontel Brown is rated #1 most progressive member of congress by Progressive Punch. She's doing a very good job. The real thing! And her list of impressive endorsements for reelection gets appropriately longer and more impressive every week.

A bunch of extremist types flooded in around 2015-16, catalyzed

by Sanders' presidential candidacy, to the great harm of the more rational socialist radicals at DSA. The Republican Party's enormously larger than the DSA of course, but both groups lost their souls to, or had them ripped out maybe, by radicalized hoards that have far more in common than not. The passions of both are energized, as always, by hope for destruction of the mainstreams that they imagine will clear the path to their power.

I always took it as a commitment to our founding principles and nation:

that that nation would be protected and that no one would lose their sovereign rights as citizens to cecession and civil war. But I never read a book about it.

"that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

One of my favorite quotes ever and so especially meaningful again now.
