No, Bernie

In Michigan, a significant number of people voted for that libertarian trash Gary Johnson after Michigan went to Sanders in the primary. The Johnson vote was larger than the vote difference between Clinton and trump. So yes, I blame the misogynist and racist wing of Berniecrats for fucking over the election and handing us trump on a silver platter. Thanks, but not again.

Stokely Carmichael on Racism and Capitalism

“If a white man wants to lynch me, that's his problem. If he's got the power to lynch me, that's my problem. Racism is not a question of attitude; it's a question of power. Racism gets its power from capitalism. Thus, if you're anti-racist, whether you know it or not, you must be anti-capitalist. The power for racism, the power for sexism, comes from capitalism, not an attitude.”
-Stokely Carmichael

Coming Home

A few days ago, I dreamt that Red the Kitty had come home. He went directly to me and let me hold him in my arms. I later learnt that he actually did try to come home. He didn't make it. He was trying to cross the road.

No, Jacobin

I disagree with Jacobin. Yes, Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is not anti-Semitic. Yes, the Democratic leadership was entirely too harsh on her. Yes, AIPAC exerts an oversized amount of control over Congress.

HOWEVER. The big money trope is indeed an anti-Semitic trope. Being not bigoted against Jewish People, Rep Omar is happy to learn from this experience. It would be great if Jacobin would acknowledged that the big money trope is anti-Semitic.

"Poverty is not an accident that. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human beings."
