As HA Goodman pointed out, CounterPunch publishes tons of articles that say a lot of the same things that you say… so for them to publish 2 articles that dismiss you in such a damning and vitriolic way is just beyond strange. I could see if they praised you, but said they didn’t agree with something you said. But that first article’s writer just kept calling you a “hack” and he seemed no different than any Hillbot-loving neoliberal. I argued with him on Facebook over it.

I believe that Trump supporters, and even Hillary supporters, are not our enemy. At least they don’t have to be. They are getting screwed over just like the rest of us. It’s just that many of the status quo-loving Hillbots don’t realize how much they are getting screwed over. We are allowing ourselves to get completely divided up, which is exactly what the powers that be want. They want Hillary and Trump supporters, as well as Bernie and Jill supporters all hating each other, and blaming each other. I refuse to compromise my beliefs and values, but I am willing to try to find common ground with people that I might otherwise be ideologically opposed. If we don’t do that, then we are forever lost. There is too much insanity out there right now, and we need to all calm down, and talk rationally with each other.
