“Progressive Politicians” Shouldn’t Shut Down Dissent Like The Establishment Does

Former Congresswoman Nina Turner, left of practically every Democrat even if she isn’t as left as we are, lost to neoliberal Democrat-backed Shontal Brown in the Ohio special election for Congress last night. Brown was the choice for Hillary Clinton, James Clyburn, and the rest of the liberal elite, but she was notably also backed by the reactionary pro-Zionist lobby group Democratic Majority for Israel. DMFI obviously opposes the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement against Israel as anti-Semitic, and they spent $738,000 opposing Nina Turner and $203,000 supporting Shontel Brown, with a large portion of the spending ($351,000) going towards . . .

Biden is Anti-Haiti, and His Haitian-American Press Person Doesn’t Give a Damn

On Wednesday May 26, 2021 Haitian American Karine Jean Pierre, principal deputy press secretary for the Biden White House, took the podium to address questions from the press. Because the corporate Democratic Party establishment realizes that showcasing racial diversity is necessary in the face of its almost 30 year history of supporting bone crushing policies like NAFTA, GATT, financial deregulation, and the 1994 Crime Bill, Democrats use demonstrations of neo-liberal diversity as their only talisman to keep the fealty of their more ethnically diverse constituency. . . .

Democrats Move Right and Towards Defeat

Besides not being Trump, the Democrats offer nothing but think they can win with a candidate who has no constituency, charisma, or any platform positions that would attract more voters. This presidential election season bears a striking resemblance to that of 2016. We were assured by pundits, pollsters, Democratic politicians, and million-dollar consultants that Donald Trump couldn’t possibly win. Except he did win and the aforementioned experts should have been discredited and forgotten.
