…here isn’t a valid concern or fringe-spun demon fantasy about Hillary Clinton that I haven’t heard. There isn’t a mistake she’s made or a policy disagreement I have with her that I haven’t long and thoughtfully considered. There isn’t a horseshit nightmare narrative about her that can be posed to me which I haven’t gathered the facts to dispute.
Their attempts to co-opt the Democratic party and take down real champions for change, like Harris, insinuate something sinister. When so-called Democrats shut down progressive women and people of color, with the claim that they don’t understand the need for change in this country (or that they can’t possibly create said change — as if women of color haven’t been the leaders of nearly every radical movement of the last century) they prove that they are nothing more than the left’s version of the alt-right.
However, the alt-left’s sheer disregard for logical discourse, refusal to view situations as multifaceted and complex, underlying racist and sexist tones, and lack of any understanding of how our political system actually works prove that they are not representative of the base of the Democratic Party, and should not be treated as such.
