Neoliberal Joe isn’t going to get away with it.
“Briahna Joy Gray, former press secretary for the 2020 presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), argued Wednesday that President Biden is “backing away already” from “populist offerings,” which she said could harm the Democratic Party in the long-run.
In an interview on Hilll.TV’s “Rising,” the contributing editor for Current Affairs magazine said that one of former President Obama’s “biggest mistakes” was to ignore a mandate to “spend the money needed to bail people out,” of the economic crisis he inherited at the start of his presidency.
“He had all three branches of government, and he didn’t do with it what I think a lot of Americans wished he would,” Gray said. “Economists largely agreed that he didn’t spend enough to actually rectify the crisis.” …”
We dumped Trump because he was a demagogue.
He wasn’t a good leader and had drifted back toward conservatism. The way he used his most devoted followers after he lost the 2020 election only to leave them hanging while he pardoned Lil Wayne illustrates why he had to go. The QAnon plan trusters, the legions of Trump grifters and the conspiratards also had to go. They were a cancer who were discrediting populism.
Blumpf is now history and no longer divides and demoralizes us. QAnon has been discredited. The plan trusters have all been exposed as fools. The Grift Right has crashed. The conspiratards walked into the Capitol Siege trap. Neoliberal Joe has become president, but this is no reason to despair. On the contrary, this is an opportunity to move forward. Millions of people are now ready to listen to a more mature effort from us. The conditions are now ripe to create a healthy populist movement. The toilet has been flushed and most of our problems have resolved themselves. The deck has been cleared and it only cost us having to put up with a senile establishment neoliberal for a few years who had to be carried through the primaries by Jim Clyburn and who only won because he wasn’t Donald Trump in a pandemic.
We elected Donald Trump as president in spite of all his massive flaws and in spite of all the stupid shit that we were saying and doing in 2016. In hindsight, I am surprised it happened so soon. The political establishment and the media were far weaker than any of us imagined. They’ve only weakened themselves even further by resorting to the methods they used to end Blumpf’s America.
Was ripping off the mask and flexing all of that hard power really worth it in the long term? Was Blumpf and his policies really that big of a threat? How many ordinary people did they radicalize by treating him like he was Adolf Hitler? He sat around eating McDonald’s, yelling at “the shows” and tweeting at his enemies for four years. He did tax cuts and criminal justice reform. We thought he was a joke. Looking back on the rise and fall of Donald Trump, it started and ended as a big joke.
Next time, we’re not going to elect a president who is a joke and it will be much easier to get someone who is more to our liking. Assuming he isn’t a one termer and runs for reelection, this person will also only have to defeat a 82-year-old Joe Biden or perhaps Kamala Harris.
Where is Huey Long 2.0?
The American elites are more hated than ever.
This would be deadly serious, not joking around populism.
If we could find that guy to run in 2024, he would crush Neoliberal Joe in a landslide. We need to find a candidate who will run on 1.) something like the Share Our Wealth program and 2.) defending ordinary White people and attacking their tormenters in the cultural elite.
Trump’s biggest mistake was holding all those pep rallies. He never tried to organize his followers into a mass organization to push through his agenda. He also endorsed all the Republican establishment candidates and embraced their unpopular agenda when he could have replaced them. He embraced $2,000 checks after he lost the election. Finally, he waited until he had lost the election to raise all that money from small donors. He would have been better off without the donor class.
Note: The Huey Long lane is there for anyone bold enough to take it.
