1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How can progressives enthusiastically support Booker in a Dem primary? on: January 13, 2017, 09:33:38 pm

I'm not sure, but it looks like that may have been an accidental retweet.  From this context:

https://twitter.com/CoryBooker/status/276834377370058753

it looks like he was arguing with the guy, and may have done an accidental retweet of the guy he was arguing with?

But I'm not a Twitter aficionado, so I may have that wrong.


He was literally campaigning for increased food stamp benefits at the time he tweeted that. Whether he made a mistake or retweeted the guy ironically (a common Twitter thing), it's clear that he doesn't believe that.

I look forward to the purity-obsessed leftists to turn on literally every Democrat (except Bernie for some reason) in the coming months and years.  These people love fighting each other, or attacking liberal allies.  They're not interested at all in standing up to the right (and many of them secretly or not so secretly support Trump anyway).

If you criticize someone who let Trump's treasury secretary designate get away with blatantly breaking the law, and then they donated money to that person, you're pro Trump. Got it.
Well you voted for Putin's green party spoiler candidate, so you're certainly pro-Trump.

If Cory Booker is not good enough for the purity leftists, then I guess the Democratic Party will just never win a national election again.

Booker fits pretty well into the middle of the Democratic Party. He is not just a progressive, but a leading progressive on a number of important issues, chief among them criminal justice reform.

I'm gonna enjoy this forum's meltdown when Booker wins the nomination. Grin
6  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Does Trump's rise prove the tea party was about race? on: January 12, 2017, 09:23:19 am
Guys, if you're arguing that the only way racially-motivated voting manifests itself is whether you vote for a black or a white guy then you're being incredibly obtuse. The fact is that Trump ran a campaign founded and centered on white racial resentment. Romney did not, McCain did not.

Probably similar to Allende's farewell address.
8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: David Brock wants to ally with Sanders - pens open apology letter on: January 11, 2017, 02:31:18 am
The worst part was this guy spend 1M$ on online trolls to "Correct the record" in almost all forums. I am sure there were trolls here as well (why would they leave this place), some of whom have disappeared. The attack on Sanders supporters here, painting them as goofs & extremists, was obnoxious by those people.

That was a fraction of what the Sanders campaign spent on their online trolls.

I always suspected you were paid by David Brock, but since you have hung on here after the GE, maybe you ain't.

I guess David Brock was playing the long game with me lol

This thread demonstrates just how terrible the democratic bench is.
uh, you guys nominated a reality TV star?

Obviously it will help him. Booker has played the last 8 weeks very smart. I know this forum hates him because MUH WALL STREETS but he's positioning himself very well for the primary right now.

Wow, disgusting. I guess the Republican Party is officially the party of being urinated on by prostitutes now. Sad!

You are doing exactly what you complained about for the last eight years

okay but that resulted in the Republicans controlling the entire country so what's the problem?

Think about it.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Sherrod Brown be the Bernie Sanders of 2020 on: January 08, 2017, 09:32:11 am
Nah, he lacks Bernie's demagogic narcissism. I don't think he can build up a cult of brainwashed sycophants around him the same way Bernie could.

Do whatever the hell you need to do to win. You know they'd do the same!
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sooooo. What lessons did Democrats learn from 2016 that they can apply in 2020? on: January 06, 2017, 10:46:29 pm
Candidates like Bernie Sanders need to be nipped in the bud ASAP, before they tank the party. I think winner-take-all primaries would go a long way towards helping this.

Start a thread on "The Atlas" subforum to bring attention to it.

Please ban white supremacists like Southern Gothic from this forum. Christ, what a disgusting signature.

Wow great to see!

And mods, please ban Russian bot ShadowOfTheWave. Let's keep this forum a Kremlin propaganda free zone.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Colorado switches to an open primary in 2020 for both parties on: December 28, 2016, 12:54:33 pm
Great news. Though if I were in charge of the DNC I would refuse to seat any delegations from "open" primary states. Might as well let Trump pick our nominee.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Julian Castro takes shots at Trump: 2020 talking points? on: December 27, 2016, 11:44:19 pm
We need to purge racists like ShadowOfTheWave from the party. They can go join Trump if they want.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Tulsi Gabbard will win the Democratic nomination in 2020. on: December 27, 2016, 03:02:57 pm
Though I like her, it's undeniable that Tulsi Gabbard would lose to President Trump in a spectacular fashion, rivalling only the loss Mondale suffered to Reagan.


How is it undeniable? Trump hasn't even taken the oath of office yet.

Because the only scenario where she is the nominee is one in which Trump supporters have infiltrated the party and put her up as a sacrificial lamb to give the 2020 election a veneer of legitimacy.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Tulsi Gabbard in Democratic Primaries on: December 25, 2016, 09:26:09 pm
I think Putin and the white nationalists will throw a lot of support behind her. We saw how easily the Bernie bots were brainwashed this year with Revolution media and all that; now imagine the Internet propaganda campaign turned up to 11. Trump will probably encourage his supporters to cross over in open primaries as well. Especially in a divided field, she could just emerge as the frontrunner.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Republicans' best-case scenario in 2020 on: December 25, 2016, 09:14:42 pm
Best case scenario is that the election is canceled or thoroughly rigged (most likely scenario where a sham quisling ticket, likely led by Gabbard, is his opponent).
