Re: “Rally to Safeguard Mueller Investigation

No, that's what YOU'RE saying. I'd rather just win. I'll work with whoever wants to join hands and beat this Mango Menace and his fascist evangelical base. You seem to be the one who's saying my way or the highway.
As to 1930's Germany, it's pretty darned clear most of the communist and left wing groups reviled and fought with the liberals and moderates even more than they did against the Nazis, and the far Left was so fucking compromised by their slavish devotion to the Comintern that they swung back and forth based on whether Hitler and Stalin were cooperating or fighting.

Re: “Rally to Safeguard Mueller Investigation

"The problem with liberals is they'd rather find ways to "reach across the aisle" or "work with Donald Trump" than unite with the left."

Not me.

Kilgore, the communists in pre-Nazi Germany were as eager to fight moderates and liberals as they were to clash with brownshirts. It wasn't just a one-way conflict. The leftists were as guilty of what you accuse liberals of.

That said, we need a coalition of people and groups. That means compromise (not with Trumplicans). Are leftists willing to put aside SOME of their cherished goals in order to defeat a greater threat? Jill Stein (Putin's other pal) wasn't. She's one of those morons (like Susan Sarandon) who still think Hillary is no different than Dolt 45. I have no beef with the Left, although I don't agree with all their aims.

Re: “Rally to Safeguard Mueller Investigation

I'm not attacking leftists. I'm just saying a big tent wins. The problem with some leftists is that they think the good is the enemy of the perfect.

Re: “Rally to Safeguard Mueller Investigation

I doubt many of Dolt 45's base understand or parse the differences between competing 20th century ideologies nor the variants thereof. Yes, we know Putin isn't a communist in the traditional sense, but then, neither was Stalin. Putin is what Dolt 45 aspires to be, an authoritarian strongman and corrupt oligarch. Trump was always running for POTUS in order to make money, it's the ultimate grift. So let's just call Putin a commie, who cares. Since when do republicans or Trump Cult Members care about fine distinctions like that? Putin's a commie pinko, and Trump is a commie sympathizer and fellow traveler. FIT IT ON A FUCKING BUMPER STICKER. These Trump criminals don't need to be reasoned with, they need to be defeated. I'll join hands with whatever other American citizens and patriots out there will join us in this American effort, be they liberals, leftists, socialists, neverTrump republicans, libertarians, moderates, Wobblies, whatever.

Re: “Election 2018: Winners, Losers, and Close Calls

Kelsey was always going to win that seat, but Salinas gave it a great shot. Glad to see the 3 referendum items were defeated. Can we hope that the city council stops trying to blatantly get around the stated will of the citizens?
I'm surprised that Barzizza lost; there has been a LOT of anger and vitriol in Germantown over development and I thought he'd harness enough of it to win. If only he'd run some ads about a caravan horde of scary people from Memphis trying to get into new Germantown apartments that might have got another hundred or so votes.....

There, fixed it for ya!
