Jimmy Dore “He recently courted a public-relations disaster when he offered a platform to Magnus Panvidya, a member of the Boogaloo Boys, a militant group that threatened violence ahead of Biden’s inauguration.”https://t.co/9IoH7fYLqD

We’re having a bit of a moment in surveying the landscape since we’ve spent the last several years watching the alt-right propagandists create QAnon and spew propaganda like never before.

Except for one portion. That’s calling out what we see of risks as risks. Or worse.

“Stop fucking around with MAGA-style (& likely driven), social-media, race-based, voter suppression & disenfranchisement tactics while embracing the fucking boogaloo boys and Assad apologists, while trying to maintain you represent ‘The Left'”

When your grift starts helping the racist AF conservative movement, you can probably count on a spotlight getting shined on your ass for it.
Nothing is happening.
Joe’s agenda is stalled in Congress.
This is kabuki theater designed to distract attention from the fact that infrastructure is stalled and even that likely isn’t getting done until the fall or winter. As the clock ticks down, the chances of passing the follow up bill via budget reconciliation which would make the child tax credit permanent becomes less and less likely to happen. Yet again, the Democrats will have delivered on the aggressive culture war issues that piss people off like trannies while sidestepping the far more popular economic issues.
Suppose for the sake of argument that it was online influencers who were holding these negotiations. The overwhelming majority of the American people agree that we need to close corporate tax loopholes and tax Wall Street to fund physical infrastructure like roads, bridges, ports and airports. We could start from that baseline consensus and work out from there to points where people disagree like whether childcare is “infrastructure.” It wouldn’t be a problem to hammer out a popular infrastructure bill.
The culture war isn’t the obstacle that some people make it out to be. It is true that the country is deeply polarized on cultural issues, but there is far more agreement on economics and foreign policy. We could easily reach a consensus on cutting the military budget and withdrawing troops from overseas warzones. We could find agreement on dealing with the Big Tech monopolies and taxation.
Note: Hating Sadie Farrell and anarchists is another point that unites people across the political spectrum – nationalists, right populists, left populists, conservatives, social democrats, socialists, liberals – and transcends the Left vs. Right divide.
