    If the NFL league office gave extra funding to the Cowboys while encouraging other teams not to compete, people would say the NFL is rigging things. And they'd be right.

    You can make a better argument for Republican Mike Bloomberg trying to rig the primary than you can the DNC

    Right but the intent of the latter is not to form a strategical convincing argument for winning its more of an emotional rejection of a corrupt system that seems incapable of changing. And I guess the difference is I think that feeling is certainly justifiable given all the evidence we've seen.

    Its gonna take time.The Progressive voting bloc needs to get larger. Progressive candidates and policies are polling well, so there needs to be more people out pushing them. Its not some big secret that the Democratic bloc is full of old moderates who have been in power too long, so yeah, its great to come here and act like this is some new and shocking stuff, it isn't.

    Watching white people finally realize this system is a rigged game and now think everything should change to how they want it because it matters to them is why I think these people are flakes. You want M4A? Yes, its great. There are generations still getting fucked trying to be treated as equal. Thats why I made the College freshman comment. This isn't new to a lot of people, and it just bothers me personally when people get on this pedestal and whine.

    We can argue over whether "rigging" is the right word to use but that seems to be intentionally missing the point by party loyalist centrists like Lyrtch

    The NFL league office is by its nature supposed to be impartial. The DCCC by its nature is not. At a functional level, their directives aren't even close to being the similar.

    i also just dont see how you create a party that is this utopian everyone gets equal funding from the party, they don't recruit candidates because that'd be unfair, they don't try to sideline candidates they think can't win, etc

    i guess you'd have to create some no party publicly funded political system, but we're also treating getting calls to not run as "rigging" (to be clear, Obama told Biden not to run reportedly, rigged)

    its just an unachievable goal

    How dare someone vent about their frustration of watching people they voted for tell them to get fucked

    You know what's even more annoying watching people who were always fucking wrong finger wagging you. This is more a shotgun at many at this thread rather than you but ur politics have sucked too.

    How about just don't intentionally support moderates over progressives every time? Or like maybe don't whine about primary challenges from the left then fund centrist primary challengers. Like that would be better.

    This is probably what's grinding my gears the most even more than the Biden bullshit. Let me put on a kente clothe kneel and pretend I support the BLM movement then turn around and throw them under the bus and scapegoat them when i suffer some political losses that weren't even attributed to them. Makes me sick to even be considered in the same party as some of these dems

    we seem to be getting off track, i think rigged is the wrong word, i also don't think the party aiding certain candidates over others is on its face bad or something you can even fix (i live in ilhans district and why i'm partly biased on this), the progressive black list or whatever is bad, i'm not in any way saying the dem party is blameless i just think the rejecting electoralism aspect of this discussion got sidelined for a season appropriate airing of grievances so GO OFF KING

    What if the constant pissing on me and people like me had delivered Trump the election? Or the reason why it was so close?

    This “NIMBY” in Atlanta is about to go vote for the Democrats to retake the Senate so we can actually get some of your pet projects done, either completely or as a compromise half-measure that still moves the ball forward.

    Idk - I’d welcome any and all allies even if they don’t want to go as far as seizing the means of production. All for M4A and other progressive policies that are very much in my backyard

    rejecting electoralism doesn't make you extra left wing

    So you'd have preferred four more years of Trump? Its literally the point you're making here.

    I voted for Biden and will 100% complain when he does shit that hurts people. No Democratic voter supports any candidate unconditionally, and its pretty assanine to make that comparison, but you do that all the time.

    I can't speak for Cane but I know myself I check this thread about once every week or two and just shitpost about how terrible dems/biden are for a few hours then go about my life. It is cathartic and probably helps me from blowing up at the next person I see in real life who tells me Kamala Harris is so brave. I can understand why that might be annoying for you and can't really offer sny any advice other than possibly ignore? No hard feelings if you did.

    As someone who urged people to vote on this board and outside of it you know damn well that's bullshit. I said months ago I planned to never vote after this election. I'm not sure why that's controversial. I'm also not sure why pointing out the foul shit Democrats did after the election was over is controversial as well. That was infinitely fucked up and they should 100% lose votes for that.

    In the 60's the SDS and Black Panthers tried to move the Democrats to the left, and the party responded by racing to the right. The whole ass organization is a farce.
