Shaun King to His Fellow Progressives: Stop With the “Both Parties are the Same” Bullsh*t

Last night, I read Shaun King’s “Atlanta Mayoral Race Shows What Happens When Progressives Don’t Compromise” and almost wept with joy. As one of the loudest voices in Bernie’s movement, King has spent an awful lot of time playing purity politics. If his preferred candidate didn’t win, then fuck …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

It’s Cute That Bernie Still Thinks Trump Voters Were Motivated by “Economic Anxiety”

Susan Sarandon is a Sentient Garbage Fire of a Human Being

Donna Brazile Rewrites History With Anti-Hillary Backstabbing

Well, I guess we’re going at it again, folks.

Trump Seriously Just Made a Legitimate Case for a Living Wage and No One Noticed

Even though he campaigned as a populist, Trump has been anything but during his disastrous time as president. Almost every single economic policy proposal (if they can even be called “policy”) has been geared exclusively towards benefiting the rich, usually at the expense of the poor and middle …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

Fringe Left Goon HA Goodman Uses Republican Talking Points on Gun Control

I’ve written many times about HA Goodman, the gadfly on the progressive movement.  Before he became Bagdad Bob for Bernie (as Bob Cesca so aptly put it), Goodman supported Rand Paul, Jim Webb and Martin O’Malley, all the while insisting that Clinton couldn’t win the primary because of her …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

In Wake of Vegas Massacre, The Young Turks Go After President Obama

The Young Turks never met a Democrat they couldn’t find fault with, since their Republican-funded network exists to sow dissent among the left.

Black Activist Suspended in the Wake of Susan Sarandon Tweet

Last week, I wrote about Susan Sarandon’s retweeting a meme made by Queen Bravenak, an African-American woman, that led the Purity Left to turn her mentions into a garbage fire.

Somehow, with Republicans in complete control of the government, there’s been a fundamental shift in the conversation around healthcare that shows just how badly Republicans have lost control of the message. In the last couple of weeks, as anticipation for Bernie’s doomed Medicare for All bill …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com
