MEMBERS ONLY: Mitt Romney: A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

Since the rise of Trump, it’s been tempting to revise our collective memory of the 2012 election and make Mitt Romney seem like a good guy. After all, he smiles a lot, he seems like a loving grandfather, and he did invent Obamacare. I’ve gone easy on him too: on my second day of grad […]

Hillary Protecting Staffer Accused Of Harassment Is Bad, But Let’s Have Some Goddamn Perspective Please

The Far Left Is Growing More Deranged By The Day

In the wake of New York Magazine’s profile of Glenn Greenwald, we spent much of yesterday dissecting Greenwald’s nonsense about the supposed lack of evidence for Donald Trump’s collusion with the Russian government.

California is Ground Zero for Control of the House in 2018

In November 2016, I felt pretty ashamed to be an American, but damn proud to be a Californian. The last year has only made me happier for my home state as we’ve led the Resistance and served as a role model for the rest of the country in how to eat progressive policies. This has been […]

MEMBERS ONLY: Cornel West’s Takedown of Ta-Nehisi Coates Proves Just How Far He Has Fallen

The Banter Long Read: The crux of West’s essay is felt in the title: “Ta-Nehisi Coates is the Neoliberal Face of the Black Freedom Struggle.” For eighteen paragraphs, some consisting of only one sentence, he accuses Coates of not fully understanding white supremacy because he does not attack war, …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

MEMBERS ONLY: How The Myth of the ‘Liberal Media’ Destroyed American Democracy

The Banter Long Read: I knew going into the 2016 election that the press was going to give Hillary a hard time. If I’d read 2003’s What Liberal Bias? before the election, I would have know Hillary was going to lose before she even officially announced….

Black Voters (Especially Black Women) are the Base of the Democratic Party

When I wrote my article yesterday about voter suppression in Alabama, I was resigned that Yellowhammer State would elect Roy Moore – a racist, misogynistic, pedophile – to the Senate seat formerly held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Democratic Primary “Reforms” Are Turning Out to be Very Un-Democratic

When it was first adopted at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, the Unity Reform Commission sounded like a good idea.

The New York Times’ Sean Hannity Profile is as Bad as its Nazi One

Just when you thought The New York Times couldn’t sink any lower than their piece lionizing conservative Ben Shapiro, and then another one about Ohio Nazi Tony Hovater (who likes Seinfeld, Applebee’s, and ethnic cleansing) their magazine, not to be one-upped, said “hold my beer” and …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

Susan Sarandon is a Sentient Garbage Fire of a Human Being

Since she told Chris Hayes that Donald Trump would “bring the revolution,” Susan Sarandon has dug herself further and further into a foxhole of crazy, never once backing down from her remarks over this last year.

Liberals Defending Bill Clinton Need to Ask Themselves Some Very Hard Questions

Earlier this week, I published a piece for Banter Members arguing that Bill Clinton was likely a rapist and that now was the time for the left to denounce him. I’ve received a lot of flak for the piece on two fronts, firstly that I attacked a Clinton, and secondly that I published it in […]
