    I'll stop bogging down the trump thread and do it over here since so many people are bitching about it.

    This is the thread where I criticize the Democratic Party because I want it to be successful and actually have power.

    Kowtowing to the wannabe Confederates and white supremacists you know isn't how the Democratic party achieves any amount of power :twocents:

    Because most of them are dumbasses or ignorant, not because they're all pieces of shit.

    Are all Baylor fans rapists now? Are all penn state fans pedophiles?

    And painting every person who disagrees with your policies as a confederate or a white supremacist is going to work?

    Try that shit in union dominated Pennsylvania and see the results.

    Then talk to them about economic policies that will benefit them and minorities and see which strategy works better.

    Certainly you understand how stupid this analogy is right? Joe Paterno didn't run on a platform of molesting children then run a child molestation factory. Art Briles didn't get elected by saying "My goal is to completely ignore rape." Donald Trump opened with "Mexicans are rapists and murders" then went on to make comments Paul Ryan described as "the definition of racist." How the fuck are you this dumb?

    "Emphasize economic issues" is something pretty much every person left of center who doesn't work for CAP thinks. If that was the sum total of the changes you wanted to see, or even your main point of emphasis, you wouldn't be the left wing pariah you have become.

    I'm not really up to speed on what's going on with these threads, TMB politics is a garbage fire of communication problems and reading comprehension fuck ups.

    but I tend to share the view that the Democratic Party needs to get its shit together. I personally think it needs to move further to the left on a wide variety of fiscal/economic issues.

    Joe paterno acted like it was no big deal and tons of people still want his statue up. They completely understand that he housed a pedophile and think his other accomplishments outweigh it. It's almost like they're more complex than "you either want his statue gone or you support pedophelia." That's the point I'm making.

    Trump used racism in his fucking campaign. No doubt. He used a lot of other shit too. People ignored the bad and embraced what they saw as good.

    I promise you 50% of this country isn't straight up racist. And if it is, then I'd say we have to navigate that reality since we live in a fucking democracy. Otherwise we can enjoy sitting on the sidelines until the baby boomers die off.

    The overlap between left leaning cable news commentators and CAP operatives is immense. It's basically the same cohort. Non-racist millionaires who only want to redistribute respect but not wealth.

    She's a black female Bernie, those are the reasons.

    But seriously, just nominated Amy Klobuchar. No idea if she'll win, but at least she's smart.

    No, i think he did something horrible and should be punished for it.

    But I can briefly excuse that fact when he says something hilarious.

    People might not have liked trumps comments on Mexicans, but they might want a border wall. Hillary said vague shit in regards to immigration and that might be one voter's main interest.

    So he excuses the racism and votes for the guy who more aligns with his view of immigration.

    So, let's use Kamala Harris as an example

    what are her past "economic" credentials? I don't really see any. I see someone who has worked in law, who is active in social causes, who meets the right gender/ethnic mix.

    what about her suggests that she'd turn down millions of dollars of financial industry money (or pharm money) when it inevitably comes looking for a politician to buy?
