David Sirota explains his position in person
How did we get a regressive Supreme Court, rampant inflation, unmitigated climate change, medical bankruptcy still common, student debt still overwhelming, an America where school shootings are routine, situation in Ukraine slowly moving toward nuclear war?...
But there's more! David Sirota explains in a YouTube video how the rank-and-file of the Enabler Party doesn't like what's going on:
Sure, Sirota is correct to assume that there is there is some sort of "mainstreaming of the anger at the Democratic Party." But please note how Sirota sidesteps the whole idea that the "normie Dems" might someday refuse to vote for Dem elites who do not deliver. You might observe, for instance, that the best he can do in this video is the notion that "primaries are a good thing." Sorry, David, the primaries are pretty much over for this year -- maybe in 2024. You can't really "hold these Democratic politicians to account" (to use Krystal Ball's phrase) unless you refuse to vote for them. You need, as I suggested in my previous diary, a quid-pro-quo arrangement -- to have any power at all.
Here is my prediction: the elite Dems will not be leaning on "electability" this time around. They know their poll numbers are pretty sad -- Donald Trump numbers without the enthusiastic base. Rather, you will hear a profound increase in discussions of (and publicity of) "FASCISM" so that "the Left" can be rallied to "defeat the fascists" once again. And they will lose, having nothing to run on, and more and more people will discover -- what will they discover? I know! They'll discover that there's no point in being in "the Left" if all you do in final elections is vote for Dem elites who do nothing.
EXTRA INNINGS: And here's a little "nice liberal with big ego" moment that popped up on my screen. Robert Reich explained to everyone on June 13th how:
Even if Democrats do not hold onto Congress, Biden could be a moral voice for why the system must be transformed. It’s his best hope for being reelected in 2024.
Or, just maybe, he (Biden) could be who he's been for the past fifty years. Note that "educating people about what the Democratic Party could do and what it's not doing" (as Sirota suggested) was beyond Reich's pale. Or at least that's how it stood as of June 13th of this year.
