Good riddance to bad rubbish

Good riddance to bad rubbish

This greeted me as I sipped on my morning coffee:

First: Walker Bragman: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Secondly: Any "progressive" who runs as a Republican is no progressive.

Thirdly: Good luck winning a GOP primary.

And, lastly: Well, what else can you say? Bernie progressives are upset because the Democrats haven't bent to their will and anointed Bernie Sanders as permanent Secretary General of the party. So, these two gonefs are taking their balls and saying: "See, we'll just run as Republicans if you're not nice to us!" That's like a Social Democrat in Germany deciding to run as a rightwing AfD candidate. It would make one wonder about his or her's devotion to liberal principles in the first place.

Really, I've avoided writing too much about Bernie and his cult because my focus has been on fighting the fascists. But this little story is illustrative of what many of us have been saying for a couple of years now: the line between an alt-rightist and a Bernie cultist is very faint, and it's starting to become non-existent. Both are devoted to blowing up the political system. Both, if they have any feeling, feel only for their immediate cult-members. They have no regard for the broader commonwealth.

Bon voyage, brave Bernie cultists. I'm sure the GOP voter will welcome you with open arms. *Snicker*
