Tale of two candidates; first, Kamala Harris
The NY Times says her campaign is a mess and that it, in part, the problem is that it listened too much to Twitter punditry. This is likely true.
They allowed themselves to be seduced by the sirens’ song of the blue check wokeniki and their manichean (i.e., ironically religious) view of politics, spawned from identical educations at 1%er universities. (Here, I mean the wokeniki who write for Jacobin, Intercept, Splinternews, and other defunct spewsites).
But the problem began Ab ovo.
Harris’ opening attack on the popular former VP was a disaster. Yet, like those below Biden, she flailed in search of a coherent line of attack. She’s been undone by the wokeniki who turned her impressive legal career into a liability.
Harris stans like Joan Walsh will be devastated.
It didn’t take long for the wokeniki to celebrate the imminent demise of The Cop.
Tis’ a worthy distraction from the flagging hopes of the Vermont revolutionary.
The NY Times also takes glee in the demise of any candidate. Same thing happened with De Blasio. Same thing will happen with Klobuchar and Booker in the near future.
Now Buttigieg: his education plan is mocked by the wokeniki. Let’s examine.
Free higher ed up to $100k is reasonable and rational. Why should the 99% pay for the education of 1% sprogs? Where’s the socialism in that?!
The “critique” amounts to no more than this: means testing means being mean.
This passes as revolutionary wisdom now.
In NYC, Bill de Blasio installed universal pre-K for all. Ironically, Berniebros/brosettes and Warren stans mocked de Blasio’s candidacy.
