“Fake drape” is serious camp shade Rand Paul threw at Lindsey Graham.
According to Jacobin magazine, philanthropy just delays the immiseration that is necessary to propel the proles fully into class struggle.
I told them it is best to use the wealthy to finance the revolution and then, when the dictatorship of the proles is in effect, declare the superrich class enemies, kulaks or whatever, and subject them to collectivization and shock work.
Tucker Carlson could quite easily be a Jacobin contributor.
Now that the Sussexes have de-royaled, the stumblebum Markle father must be bereft that his cash flow will be crimped.
Trump’s visible disability during today’s podium performance shocked Republican Senators.
As I wrote in real time, “CLOTUS is drugged, could barely keep his right eyelid open. Shuffling, sniffling, slurring junkie.”
Obama makes Trump bleed from his wherever.
Susan Sarandon and Michael Moore are eating a big platter of crow. Sarandon put some nonsense on tape about Trump the Peacemaker that will live in eternity.
Basically, Mar-a-Lago is the biggest whorehouse in Florida.
Re Michael Moore: Clinton collected 3+ million more votes than Trump in 2016.
Moore declined to endorse Clinton.
HRC was labeled a “centrist.” She excited the base enough to receive 3+million more votes than her opponent. Which puts a hole in Moore’s claim that only a “progressive” would do this. Or she was in fact a progressive after all, who excited the base.
Obviously, Moore is not sophisticated enough to know that turnout in specific states matters.
Revolutionary twitter has done nothing but give itself a nosebleed from hatred of Biden.
Take Rob Delaney, for example. Basically says he prefers Trump over Biden if Sanders doesn’t win the nomination.
Fortunately, we have a Tea Party for the Left now (Justice Democrats).
There’s probably a faint correlation between Elizabeth Warren’s aping of Bern’s anti-billionaire/class war rhetoric and her wine cave fiasco, and a decline in fundraising.
Build a bigger wine cave, Senator!
Don Imus’ demise should be a warning to any Cenk-like podcasters.
Imus was like an extension of Trump’s Id.
Muppies. Millennial Urban Professionals. The extremely online ones (i.e., writers for Jacobin/Splinternews type outfits) are buying brownstones in Bushwick from their trust funds.
Trump’s biggest feuds of 2019 were with reality and with his crippling paresis.
AOC risks damaging her brand the longer she associates with Bern’s losing campaign. For example, she’ll be held accountable for the misogyny and homophobia exuded by Bern’s online acolytes.
John Kasich say Democrats should avoid hard left candidates. The thing is, Bern and Warren aren’t hard left. They use the rhetoric of class struggle, but they are basically Right deviationists. Bourgeois socialists. Millionaires.
Bern’s online support is more left wing and, frankly, unhinged. But they’ll have no influence on policy.
Interestingly, support for the Vermont revolutionary is low among black voters and voters earning <50k
Bern appeals to the aristocracy of labor and those occupying intermediate class positions. Neither of these groups are particularly revolutionary. Lumpenproles remain with Trump.
Class struggle will continue as it has since 1848: predator capitalists on one side and xenophobic, economistic proles on the other side.
It is no surprise that Michael Moore prefers Trump over Biden. So does Walker Bragman.
Without a theory of needs, woke culture analysis remains superficial (i.e., idealist, bourgeois). It can nag from the sidelines, shame on Twitter, but will have no effect in reality.
White supremacists are as ubiquitous in the military today as heroin was during the Vietnam War era.
Fruitcake has a longer half-life than uranium.
As the kids say: Michael Moore needs to check his own masculine privilege.
Does anyone remember …
Michael Moore, the filmmaker, lambasted the front-runners. ”A vote for Gore is a vote for Bush,” he said. ”If they both believe in the same thing, wouldn’t you want the original than the copy? Wouldn’t you want Bush? Sirloin or hamburger? Which would you go for?”
Republicans like measles, probably something to do with The Rapture.
The NY Times has hired some low quality reporters recently, unlike the ones who won Pulitzers in 2017. See Elizabeth Williamson.
