Blue Plate Special

A little over a month ago, Democratic Party “rising star” (spit) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted “this is a massacre”, referring to the Israeli slaughter of unarmed Palestinians in Gaza. Needless to say, as soon as the establishment pushed back, she immediately started waffling her ass off and folded faster than Superman on laundry day, saying that she posted that tweet “as an activist” and not a Congressmember. However, now that she’s a member of Congress, she’s apparently willing to “learn and evolve” — which, as someone who grew up in Washington DC, I understand to mean “flip-flop”, or “do an Obama” as we say these days.

Granted, the focus of her activism was on economic issues, but still — if you’re going to run for Congress, you also need to keep up on lots of other issues as well, such as the 70 years of brutal occupation of Palestine and the Gaza Strip by Israel, and the ongoing mass murder of Palestinians in Gaza.

What especially galled the hell out of me is that initially, Ocasio belted out the straight, raw truth — but when the pushback hit, her first instinct was to backpedal rather than show some backbone and stand her ground in solidarity with the people of Gaza against Israeli barbarity. All the walking back, backpedaling and explaining she can possibly do now will do her no good because, as the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

At least we found out early.

#MeltICE

By mike flugennockSaturday - July 7th, 2018Categories: Party Animals, liberty

So, while the ICE has gone full Gestapo — separating immigrant families, caging their children — and people are in the streets taking direct action, occupying ICE offices, blocking detainee transfer buses and confronting officials in public, what are the Democrats doing? Well, along with hopping aboard the bandwagon for votes, they’re lecturing us about “civility”, with Chump Schumer and Nancy Pelosi being the worst of the bunch.

And, as usual, Democrats are waffling and mealy-mouthing, calling for “reforming”, “restructuring” and re-imagining the American Gestapo; the most irksome of all has to be Kamala Harris who, after knocking herself out defending ICE, has suddenly started talking about “re-examining” ICE. Sorry, Ms. H., but “re-examining” and “reforming” are not abolishing.

Blue Box Chardonnay

Because It’s Always 2016 Somewhere In The World.

So, according to Senator Support Our Troops, the Donkeycrats are in danger of veering “too far to the left”, and that the issues Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran on — and won — would somehow “alienate” Midwesterners.

Yeah, that’s right, you heard it here first — folks in Iowa City, Flint or Milwaukee don’t give a rat’s ass about the cost of housing, education or healthcare, or about depressed wages, or collective bargaining rights, or the quality of their water.

Keep on swigging that Centrist Chardonnay, Senator.
Wine, spoh-dee oh-dee, drinkin’ wine.
