87. I like most of your journal entries, eni. Except your $15 minimum wage opposition.

But what you're weighing in with, on this o.p., is the foulest thing to hit the scene since zoom's many myopic observations. You won't even demonstrate knowledge about the sub-threads on this one o.p. issue, but now you launch into a lofty overview about how the Dems should soul search nationally.

The false equivalency argument, put forward by Fox, Tucker, zoom, and you is a blatant joke. Eichenwald has done a ton of excellent reporting on dRumpf, the repugs for years. One tweet where he said "I believe dRumpf was institutionalized", which was not published in any of the many credible news sources Kurt worked for, is not "Kurt = Alex Jones, drumpf, fox, Carlson, Breitbart, the repug party".

The hundreds of tweets Eichenwald made, that show drumpf and repug lies and scandals, which THEN went on to be covered by legit news sources that published him for years, somehow none of those tweets are discussed. But by all means, let's hear from Carlson and Fox about how Eichenwald made a false allegation tweet, while Carlson and Fox have lied hundreds of times with "official news".



You posted all over this thread, and never touched fire. You posted 7 times so far, and ignored 18 DU post-ers with good points about the overall issue that you won't acknowledge. You're so concerned with the issue, though.

You start out with "Right wing "news" liars have a point, our side is acting like Alex Jones", and should be called out on this behavior. And you end with "Dems should jettison "identity politics". "


This journal post of yours engages in "identity politics":
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027728894

It's extra funny because in that post you accused the repugs of "over focusing on the bathroom issue in a threatening manner". (But they "won", right?) Now you think Dems talked too much about bathrooms.

But once again, you can't demonstrate comprehensive knowledge or acknowledgment of this thread's important issues, so it's not disappointing that you aren't able to demonstrate a coherent knowledgeable view about the national issues you ponder and analyze.

(4 other posts on your journal's last page are also "identity politics" in their nature; liberty/libertarian, economic inequality, Social Security / retired citizens.)

Your lack of acknowledgement leads you to a transparently false self-assumption of knowledgeability. Any critiques of -- or plotting future courses for -- the Dem party which emanate from your quarter will therefore rightly fall on deaf ears, for the most part. Even within this thread.
