It’s worth remembering that xenophobic violence erupted in the former East against “Auslander,” just a year after the Mauerfall.
Jacobin magazine is down in the mouth over the collapse of East Germany. I understand their disappointment. When the wall was transgressed, those East Germans headed straight to Kaufhaus des Westens. Total neolibs even after 40 years of the best socialist education in the Soviet bloc! Amazing!
The Stasi was why Ossis couldn’t have nice things.
Gregor Gysi would have been a brilliant replacement for Honecker.
Putin went from busting kneecaps in a decrepit Friedrichshain dungeon to bombing civilians in Aleppo as Russia’s Eternal President.
Re Elizabeth Warren: Ordinary people won’t read policy papers. Soundbites recycled through repetitive stump speeches drill home the gist of the matter.
The key for Democrats is to reach low information voters in swing states, who were once the backbone of Republican Party support.

Some say Trump’s Russian is more coherent than his English. In English he says Sessions didn’t say anything wrong and that Democrats are engaged in a witch hunt.
Too bad Sessions rode in on Baba Yaga’s broomstick.
