Garbage In…

So, it’s looking like the Donkeycrats have assembled their All-Star Team for 2020, except that they picked their All-Stars from the cellar dwellers.

Let’s have a look at the lineup, shall we…? We’ve got a guy who was Bill Clinton’s liar-in-chief, a sk8ter boy who couldn’t beat Ted Cruz, a woman who’s proud to have made a career out of prosecuting and imprisoning the poor and vulnerable, a woman who hangs with fascists from India, a woman who endorsed Hillary in ‘16 and brags about being a capitalist, a guy who pimped Bill Clinton’s infamous crime bill in the ’90s, a woman who co-sponsored the anti-BDS bill, a guy whose nose is so far up Big Pharma’s ass it’s a wonder he can breathe and – last but certainly not least – every old progressive’s dream date, a guy who opposes BDS and who sat around silently, not saying jack about the bare-assed oil-grabbing right-wing coup going down in Venezuela for over 24 hours before inexplicably parroting Trump’s lies about the Maduro administration.

Basically, garbage.

Fascism is running wild all over, millions are a broken ankle away from destitution, we’re being dragged into another war in Latin America, the goddamn Earth is on fire, and the Democrats expect us to shut up and choose from garbage.

Garbage in, garbage out.

…or Democracy Gets It!

By mike flugennockMonday - December 3rd, 2018Categories: Party Animals, elections, media

Apropos of nothing, I suppose… just coming up for air after wrapping up a big-ass fun design gig for a friend’s cannabis start-up that’s launching next year – and seeing all the Donuts on Twitter, bitching about all the Leftists who aren’t voting Democratic, and often staying home altogether.

In case you haven’t noticed, the smell of 2020 is already in the air – the Left-punching Donut accounts are out punching the Left, the Sanders-punching Donuts are out punching Bernie, and they’re all out pimping the Democratic Party because… democracy. Basically, if you’re not voting Democratic, you hate Democracy™.

The Donuts are all real gung-ho for the exercise of democracy n’shit, but then when you actually vote your values, like vote Green or Socialist or something – that is, actually participate in friggin’ democracy – they get their panties in a twist because you didn’t vote for the goddamn Democrat, even though the Democrat in the race also sucked on toast.

Yer Liberals, no. 3

By mike flugennockSaturday - April 29th, 2017Categories: 2016 Election, Party Animals, elections

For the better part of a year and a half, Liberals have been screeching about how Sanders wasn’t “a real Democrat”, saying he was “damaging” the Democrats and that he and his supporters should leave the party — and after a year and a half of bullying, public insults, blame-shifting, gaslighting and other abuse, most progressive Democrats and other Left constituencies are thinking that ditching the Democratic Party sounds like a helluvan idea.

Needless to say these days, Liberals aren’t getting the reaction they’re hoping for from the Left on that point and, of course, the Liberals are having kind of a hard time getting their heads around it. Seems that finally, Liberal Democrats and the Left have reached common ground – just not in the way Liberals wanted.

And by the way, I need to send a shout-out and huge-ass props to Nina Illingworth, one of my favorite Left bloggers, who busts balls with straight raw truth, written in the kind of no-bullshit, smash-mouth style I really dig. A tweet she posted a week or so ago pretty much handed me this gag on a plate. Don’t forget to check out her blog, and toss a few bucks in her tip jar if you can. Thanks again, Nina.
