I am grateful that people are finally realizing the level of corruption and conspiracy it took

to bring HRC down.

That it wasn't bullshit concepts of economic anxiety, but 'cultural anxiety'

That Russian interference that she warned us about from the debates, are real

That James Comey did cost her the election

That even if she had campaigned every day in Wisconsin her voters were not allowed to vote

It took some extraordinary level of bullshit to bring her down. I really hope Kamala, Kirsten, or Corey have a plan to battle some of this in 2020.

So many on the alt left and right OBSESSED with how much money Obama is making

so many fancy ways of saying 'blacks and women should not get high paid jobs, that's the domain of white men like me.And if I as a white man can't make that money how dare blacks and women???'

While people are arguing over 2 men trying to lead a largely administrative job at the DNC

(yes, i know it has some tactical elements and a huge fundraising component)

The real resistance to Trump is being lead by women.

The stars in the senate right now are Liz Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Kamala Harris who are leading voices against Trump Cabinet nominees.

Sally Yates who refused to defend an illegal exec action.

Gabby Giffords who is shaming GOP to show up to townhalls

Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi in the house trashing Trumps every actions.

Laverne Cox and Janet Mocks who are leading the pushback against this anti-trans regime

Cecilia Richards of Planned Parenthood who is pushing back against more anti-choice legislation.

Not to mention women who marched in the women's march and women leading the pro-science resistance

Hillary was right when she said the future is female.

Naming liberal values after a single politician is fucking weird

i don't know why that is a thing except to keep the infighting in the democratic party going.

I support social justice and economic justice and politicians who can stand up for these values. I don't have Andrew Cuomo values or Bill de Blasio values, they both represent my values in some significant ways.

I have realized I don't give a shit if Ellison or Perez wins the DNC chair job

i had a slight preference for Perez because of his ties to Obama, and I still have a slight preference for him. But I don't really give a shit.

If Keith wins it, good for Keith and I hope good for us too.

What i do care, is people falsely maligning Tom Perez, who is a hardworking, liberal, loyal Democrat. That I care about.

Tom Perez is not (a) neoliberal (b) corporatist and (c) or whatever the fuck establishment means.

And people who malign him as such are lying, dumb, and trying to break apart the Democratic party because they are still butthurt about something.

Every network is showing the picture of Mike Flynn at a Putin dinner

they should point out that Jill Stein is at the same dinner. at the same table.

imagine being dumb enough to vote for her, while throwing out words like 'corporatist' and 'neoliberal' at the rest of us.

tsk tsk.

If HRC was president, we would not be talking about Jeff Sessions as AG

and Coretta Scott King's words would not have been silenced in the Senate.

We would not have confirmed someone for Education Secretary who hates everything good about public education.

Maybe some people need this kind of turmoil to feel woke, but I am woke AF. I don't need other people's rights taken away to feel woke.



Woke = socially aware and active
AF = as fuck

As trump stops refugees from immigrating, let's remember this email HRC sent

http://documents.latimes.com/2140346-c05760347/

How stupid were the #demexit, #jillnothill, #bernieorbust people?

Maybe not stupid at all, maybe just racist and unempathetic. After all it's not like these policies are directly affecting most of them.

It is literally heartbreaking to see the last few days of the obama presidency

I will miss this man and his family, his love of his country, and his grace under such disgraceful obstruction, more than I ever thought possible.

i cannot believe the depth of shit he had to endure without getting any of the shit on himself.

I really hope I live long enough to see another president of this caliber again. I suspect though that this a once in a lifetime type of thing.

I have a lot of empathy and sympathy for working class voters who voted for HRC

in large numbers, of all colors and genders and religions.

I, especially feel terrible for these people who are in red states, and will be hideously affected by a trump presidency.

I have oodles of sympathy that their social security net will be removed, their healthcare may disappear, their job may disappear, and that their air and water will get poisoned.

My loyalties, my feelings, my love and my empathy lies with these people. Good people who stood up against bigotry and economic injustice and social injustice, who will suffer needlessly.

I do not waste my feelings on bigots. I do not waste it on people who did this to themselves.

I want more articles written about these folks.
