Punk Politics #79

This was from White House Communications director Kate Bedingfield on response to activists essentially shit canning Biden over his speech on Friday. I’ll have a link to my analysis of that shit fire at the bottom of this. “Joe Biden’s goal in responding to Dobbs is not to satisfy some activists who’ve been consistently out of step with the mainstream of the Democratic Party. It’s to deliver help to women who are in danger and assemble a broad-based coalition to defend a woman’s right to choose now, just as he assembled such a coalition to win the 2020 campaign.” “The President has been showing his deep outrage as an American and executing his bold plan- which is the product of months of hard work- ever since the decision was his own.” Wow, y’all got us fucked up! Every single activist platform is what these candidates run on. This isn’t activism, this is fuckng accountability. Women protesting because Biden thumbed his asshole doing fuck all “out of step” with that party. Yet again, why the hell are any of us supporting the DNC. Do we all need therapy to learn about toxic patterns? Remember, you don’t owe abusers anything! And these mainstreamers that treat all us activists the ways shot parents treat “mistake” children which males them the exact same as abuse most of us survived through. I still don’t see where Biden is expressing outrage. The last time Biden had any fight was when he was campaigning for segregationists. This is why the right is winning. They moved in the direction of their base and have straight up coddled their most activist constituents. Absolutely, the policies hurt everyone. But the fact is that GOP constituents feel honesty representated by the monsters they’re voting for. So why is anyone on the left voting for people who clearly despise us?
