Nina Turner IS running for Congress. Just got this email from organize@peoplesparty.org

This discussion thread was locked by Elad (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Although she is (grudgingly) running as a "Democrat", she's already bashing the Democratic Party and Joe Biden.

Interesting that it came from "organize", yet it was sent at 8:21 PM inviting people to a "national call" at 8:30 PM - just nine minutes later. Nice organizing!

The text (bold is mine):

George,

It's official! Sen. Nina Turner is running for Congress. She's running for the seat vacated by Rep. Marcia Fudge, who Joe Biden has chosen as secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The People's Party isn't on the ballot in Ohio yet so she will have to run as a Democrat, but we can't think of anyone better to win that seat and bring a friend of the People's Party to Congress.

This week brings grim news from the nation's ocean scientists who reported that the Arctic is heating up at a rate double that of the global average and sea ice is melting rapidly.

We still have time to turn this around. Come onto our national call tonight at 8:30 pm Eastern time where climate scientist and MPP climate advisor Dr. Peter Kalmus will talk about the world's climate emergency and why the People's Party must succeed to help avert climate catastrophe in the next few years.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues to fill his administration with corporate lobbyists and centrists from the Obama administration. On tap is General Lloyd Austin for Defense Secretary, who helped spearhead the 2003 invasion of Iraq and sits on the board of Raytheon, a major supplier of bombs, including to the U.S-Saudi air war in Yemen which has killed at least 100,000 civilians.

He will join Neera Tanden, Bernie Sanders' nemesis, who looks to be a shoo-in for director of the Office of Management and Budget despite her light financial resume. Tanden is a venomous opponent of popular proposals like Medicare for all and a Green New Deal and supports cuts in Social Security nd Medicare. As president of the corporatist "Center for American Progress," she famously punched an employee who questioned Hillary Clinton's support for the Iraq War and accepted millions of dollars in donations from "friendly" foreign regimes such as the United Arab Emirates.

Last week we officially registered the People's Party in Maine, our first state party! Maine has a special rule that requires early registration. Please donate as we prepare to register the People’s Party in all 50 states and offer a progressive populist alternative to the corporate-funded Democratic and Republican parties in 2022 and 2024.


For the record, Tanden NEVER "punched an employee"! Oh, this is going to be a great Democratic primary in 2022!

both already in local office, and one of them a mentored by Marcia fudge. Plus, there are expected to be others running in this long-time Democratic stronghold.

She and the people behind her bring a ver large campaign war chest of money raised from around the country to this little district. Expect a massive character assassination campaign against whoever turns out to be her big opponent.

71. The fact that she compared Joe Biden to "EATING A BOWL OF SHIT" also disqualifies her.

She doesn't have a very good history of winning competitive elections. She's also an avowed supporter of Jill Stein. She voted for Jill Stein over Hillary.

have pledged to run and both are apparently well regarded in that district.

I hope this is true and Nina can find some other outlet for her narcissism.

And, no, given Nina's expressed intent NOT to be a Democrat in the recent past, I am not negatively attacking a Democrat in what I posted.

i.e., she doesn't WANT to run as a Democrat. That's all we need to know, and you're right, you're NOT negatively attacking a Democrat.

I couldn’t care less about Nina Turner and I very much doubt she will win the congressional seat. I’m just amused at the blatant hypocrisy of those who drool over a radical right wing Republican in Democratic clothing but cry about folks like Bernie or Turner (some of them even cry about our most promising Democrats like AOC!).

.....are you referring to their finances.

The "fringe" is still running at less than 10% success rate since those groups were founded (not "quite well" ), but they're all doing "quite well" financially. Makes one wonder why they were in it in the first place.

78. You've been distracted: We reject hostiles running Trojan Horse campaigns.

Turner just retweeted THIS about Democrats from her buddy David Sirota. Biden's election "normalizes corruption and corporatism" and begins the "darkest timeline as the world burns." I looked at tweet after tweet from her and found nothing about Democrats that wasn't similarly hostile and intensely dishonest.



You may not care now, but subversion of the Democratic Party threatens to throw the gate open to a RW authoritarian and religious takeover. Exactly as it did in 2016, but we haven't fallen to the hostiles double teaming us from right and left yet.

What is now a strongly authoritarian Republican leadership serves the kleptocracy it helped create, their fascistic voters want a dictator to impose religious nationalism and smash all opposition, and our governments and courts are already dangerously packed with corrupt Christian nationalists. Turner's words and actions strongly suggest she would prefer that to continuation of democracy under Democratic leadership.

What you are describing is your own manufactured distractions. Trump also does this...he carries on false narratives about others because he thinks the repetition of falsehoods will eventually be acceptable or credible. HI

Not to mention your opposite world. The hypocrisy belongs to those with proven double standards and lies about others. It’s okay for Bernie to switch parties but not okay for a woman of color. Trump also continues false dialogues. He fabricates lies about others and just repeats them as if that makes them credible.

As both AOC and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera are women of color, I think your petty attempts to mischaracterize my opposition as racism says more about you than anyone else. 😘

It isn’t a mystery. We aren’t playing twenty questions.

You accused me of calling you some sort of name. You refuse to say what name I called you.

You know I didn’t, I know I didn’t, and you still haven’t apologized for your malicious accusations. Shameful.

“Look for the post with fringe” instead of actually saying what you think I called you.

With as many times as you’ve written “look for the post with fringe” you could have written a dissertation on this perceived insult.

As we have talked about before, the post where I mentioned “fringe” was a reply to someone else using the word “fringe”, not a reply to you, and contained no name calling of you.

How deep are you going to dig this hole until you admit you made the whole thing up?

You accused me of calling you a name and despite asking you (at least a dozen times) what name I allegedly called you, you’ve refused to answer.

Instead you kept talking about a post with a fringe over and over and over again.

What name are you accusing me of calling you? How hard can it be to answer that?

137. Do you typically do that in life?

You make a wild, completely in imaginary accusation, refuse to substantiate it, then drop hints about how one could substantiate it instead of just saying what offended you?

How’s that work out for you?

139. I'll happily answer your question.

Just as soon as you say specifically what name you’re accusing me of calling you.

That doesn’t mean “go look for a fringe!” for the 47th time.

Can you handle that? Can you bring yourself to substantiate your allegation or does the perceived slight remain confined to the realm of your imagination?

Are you used to people just rolling over when you fabricate malicious allegations? You accused me of calling you some offensive name but you refuse to say what it was.

If you actually wanted me to answer your question you’d apologize for making this whole thing up and we could move on. But you can’t. Or won’t.

I’m not sure how I can help you. The slight you perceive exists only in your imagination.

I’m glad you finally decided to be honest with yourself and acknowledge that I hadn’t called you any sort of name. It has been an interesting experience watching you come to grips with that.

You’re one of “those” who thinks you’re making some point by supporting an ultra right wing conservative Republican social security abolisher because you’re upset left-leaning independents occasionally run as Democrats.

For anyone not up to speed, this is where we are:

$$$$$ and RB Garr are vehemently opposed to left leaning independents who share our values running as a Democrats.

$$$$$ and RB Garr are strongly supportive of ultra right wing conservatives who shares none of our values rubs as a Democrat. (&&&&& won’t even deny that he would support Donald Trump if he ran as a Democrat).

They think they’re being clever by trying to draw a parallels between these two scenarios but unfortunately all they’re doing is exposing themselves and what they truly believe.

I bet we all know why they’re REALLY opposed to AOC. Women of color in positions of power seem to have this effect on a certain subset of the population."

DEMOCRATS gained 40 seats in 2018, gave up 10 in 2020 - that's a net gain of 30.

Is the group of people you call "progressives" a separate party now, or are they DEMOCRATS like me and others in the DEMOCRATIC party? To say progressives did quite well and moderates did not is divisive. In case you didn't notice, WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!!

She went down to Nebraska and campaigned for a Right to life candidate.Heath Mello, who sponsored a bill in the Nebraska legislature that made it so insurance couldn't pay for abortion coverage. She lectured Democrats on what we would have to accept in terms of choice and said Our revolution would endorse Republicans and/ or Green slimes. But Democrats had to 'prove' themselves. Our revolution supported Perriello in the Virginian gubernatorial primary. He was one of the House members who put anti-choice legislation in the ACA. Her actions have disqualified her in my book and I live in Cleveland and will campaign for anyone (Democrat of course) but her.

There were many lies and exaggerations brought forth about Caruso just like the lies about Hillary so it was correcting those that led to the attacks on DUers.

Her book was 10 years ago, not recent as was pushed here. There is one man with a recent book very unflattering to my party but that didn’t matter to the same folks.

We were called “supporters” which is a joke because we weren’t in her district. Caruso never smeared my party, which was a noticeable difference. It was a Democratic primary.

I get that, and I agree. But it was about Smucker's owning a piss-poor junk dog food company that makes dogs and cats ill and shortens their lives. Since Smuckers is an Ohio company (but not in her district - it's in a bright red district ), I emailed her asking if she could help with a law that would force the FDA to make it illegal for dog food makers to include rendered meat in their food - currently, the law only requires that every ingredient must be listed on the food bag, but not the quality of that ingredient. Any bag that lists "meat" or "meat meal" or "meat by-products" means it is rendered meat: road kill, vet remains - yes, sick dogs and cats, that's how the tags get found in wet dog food - and rotten meat from grocery stores. Render factories take this meat, cook it, sell it cheaply to dog food factories... and that's what our pets eat when we buy dog food that has "meat" as an ingredient. I was hoping she could take up the cause, or forward it to a colleague who would. She gently blew me off. I would have taken just a referral to some group who could - or is - working on it, but nada. So... But I don't rate her completely on that; that was obviously my personal regret, not related to what she does for people.

132. Turner and others in that camp state that they voted third party.

The Nina Turners had to have known that voting for Stein would be throwing their votes away in an empty gesture. Many of Sanders' similarly zealous supporters (not the nice, sensible ones), who were every bit as dishonestly enraged at Hillary as trumpists are at Biden because their candidate lost, actually voted directly for Trump.

You could have made a topic about any of the other people who have officially declared their intent to run for Ohio 11, but you made one about Nina Turner who has yet to officially file to run.

She must live rent free in your head or something for all the commentary you make about her.

And who is apparently planning on running under our banner because she has no other choice. And you attack someone for bring it up?

DU is a site for people who support Democratic Party candidates. She didn’t. So she is fair game for as much criticism as DU members want to give her.

Why do you seemingly defend someone who did not support our last candidate getting criticized?

I’m assuming you supported all of our candidates.

119. AFAIK Turner is planning on becoming a Democratic Party candidate

See how the rules suddenly don't apply to her now? The rules here seem only to apply to the general election Presidential candidate. I remember the Independent exception was allowed for Charlie Crist support in his race against the Democratic nominee and Marco Rubio so I'm aware of the DU history of the rules.

I voted for both Clinton & Biden but I certainly bite my tongue when it comes to Biden. Not so much when it comes to Clinton as I find her to be more impressive than Biden.

I certainly support Democrats and Independents that align with Democrats especially if they push progressive policies but I can't say the same for the rest of the board even when they win their primaries and even when they are elected representatives.

Than either do with Turner

You voted for a Democratic candidate perhaps more moderate than you prefer. I am more of a moderate democrat, at least by DU standards, but would vote for a very progressive democrat. Turner did not. That’s my point.

She would not be welcomed on DU as she violated our cardinal rule.

49. a little unrelated

In that article I read about the two known possible candidates (Brown and Johnson), Dennis Kucinich was mentioned as a long shot, but he's actually running to be Cleveland's mayor again!

I met him as a kid - he visited our elementary school when he was a young councilman. He spoke in our library, and while doing his thing, I drew a portrait of him (why, why? ). It was actually pretty good! Afterwards, I showed my teacher and she took me over to him. He was pleased and autographed it. Wish I had kept it, but pretty sure it's lost forever, too long ago.

58. I always wistfully hope that the radicals who think governance is a game of team opinions

Grow up and realize governance is a far more delicate balancing act than "leadership" is. When working for a diverse society, sometimes one has to stop pushing and f**king listen to what one might consider trivial or wrong simply because someone else's needs and desires for a future can be equally important for progress to occur.

There needs to be room for equal consideration of everyone -even ones you don't approve of - in the now, or in the future, you will probably find yourself shut out when the enemies you labeled gather together against you.
That's one of the reasons why historically, radicals always end up eating their own once they drive all the others out.

But people like Nina Turner never seem to realize that. To them, governance is a team sport where they set themselves up as a coach figure, assuming that proves they're a leader.. Unfortunately, they always end up causing more distraction and destruction than they "win".

91. Many/most radicals are wired to aggression toward threatening ideologies,

"threatening" being any strong enough to frustrate their ambitions. That's us. They can't "grow up," it's what they are. At least so I've read from studies.

It's a core psychology they share with -- big surprise -- the aggressive trumpists also obsessed with demonizing and attacking the Democrats in their way.

Also not a big surprise, given all they have in common, is that hard-cores on both sides may move back and forth between camps. Or permanently, and then that seems to usually be from left to finding a home on the right. Maybe that could be viewed as a form of "growing up?" Makes sense given that RW hostiles are much more numerous and successful, not held back by the far left's relative wimpiness, and by then I imagine acting out their hostility has been sabotaging their claimed ideals for years anyway.
