The Progressive/Regressive wing of the DNC is going to flame out at some point. If you look at it like the Tea Party from 2010 it's the same basic idea of a bunch of people with insane ideas that got into power and basically ended up no different than the rest of the establishment types within a few years.

Or, someone will challenge them at some point and they'll get knocked out of office.

There's a theory going around the saner Dem circles I've heard a few times, and while on the surface, it sounds crazy, I can't think of anything that outright disproves it, and given the caliber of the DNC this go-round, we may as well go over it. The theory, simply put, is that we are looking at the DNC attempting to outright kill off the Progressive wing. The reason is simple: The party's financiers want results, and the Dems simply aren't giving it to them. They're too obsessed with woke politics, and while that is useful, it's also a nonstarter with the electorate.

What it basically needs to do right now is what happens when a Sports team completely fucks up under bad management and ownership: it needs to flush everyone responsible and start rebuilding. What 2020 basically will be, story goes, is the DNC doing the equivalent of fucking up on purpose so it can shit-can the dead weight and get good prospects for the draft lottery. Let the whole thing go down in flames, and devote all money towards refilling the campaign coffers that the Progressives and the Clintons in particular tapped out.
It sounds absolutely idiotic, but it's not the worst long game to play. It's better to throw weak candidates out against an incumbent in a futile attempt than to burn up possible good ones, and it would be easier to get a Democrat back into the White House if they weren't running against a president running for re-election.

The Democrats throwing out candidates with little chance of success but playing for the next cycle isn't a bad idea, and I'm convinced it's what the RNC did in 2012 against Obama.

I am waiting for Mexicans and muslims and to a lesser extent black people to wake up and realize that their relatively conservative social values give them far more in common with Republican voters than with anything the Woke stand for. The Woke know it and do their best to drown out dissenting voices but as soon as these minorities figure it out the Democrats are done.
Republicans would have to undo years of rhetoric they've thrown out about minorities for them to start having any real chance of getting them back. They've done nothing to bridge that gap over that past few decades.

What did JFK want?
To kill Castro?






He had a nice beard, but fuck Castro refusing to die from all those CIA attempts...

Depends on if it's for math or history or for women's studies.
It really doesn't. All college is a scam. I'd argue the social harm from STEM degrees, which marginalize self-taught mathematicians and programmers, is greater than that of cultural studies. I mean, there's a guy with a CS degree from Oxford in the next cubicle whose idea of an efficient Python data structure is this:

[{'id': ##, 'value': ##}, {'id': ##, 'value': ##}, {'id': ##, 'value': ##}, {'id': ##, 'value': ##}, ...]
like motherfucker what is this shit even

and when he needs to fetch an element by its id, he just goes over the whole fucking list. "Ooh, you got a comment on my pull request, what's your major again, cleaning pumps? haha stfu and approve."

Get a fucking job you loser.

EDIT:

One point:

American military spending is the only reason why world is able to prosper at the rate that they are and migration problem is just part ofthat military spending. Without American global presence in the world, regional powers like China, North Korea, Russia, Iran will begin forming blocs of alliances. Without Americans able to project their power over regions, you'd see competing powers building military in equal fashion and more warfare, more tragedies, and more instability.

And yes, you'd likely see a fucking nuclear war because of it.

You are a fucking moron. Get fucked you ungrateful ignorant fuck.
This is a hugely important point. The American military doing 90% of the world's dirty work is what allows those wonderful European nations to put money into their precious social programs in the first place without worrying about getting invaded or conquered, and yet still they're eager to see it happen anyway by importing regressive immigrant populations until that freedom to be gay or jewish or whatever starts evaporating because those regressive "Asians" start both developing the numbers and exacerbating the victim complex that wealthy woke people hand them in order to roll back progressive developments.

There's no rhetoric to undo. The left and the media love to nutpick and try to portray positions of the far right as representative of the mainstream right. And judging by your post, they've succeeded.

There's only two groups calling for racial segregation in America right now: the mainstream left and the far right. But the way the media tells it, it's coming from the mainstream right.

Yang has come out for lowering the voting age to 16. Lolz. Not old enough to watch 13 Reasons Why by themselves, but old enough to vote apparently. Democrat "logic".

Marianne Williamson is looking like the Dems most sane and mentally capable candidate. The Dems have had 11 years to find someone competent to succeed Obama and all they've got is this?

😂

Someone born into wealth had no control over that fact.

Edit: And you're right, its not very idealistic. You're more idealistic than I am. You still believe the playing field is level. You still think capitalism isn't broken. You still believe that with enough elbow grease anybody can attain the American Dream, whatever the fuck that means anymore. You might think yourself cynical but you're far more optimistic than I ever was.
That sounds like a remarkably defeatist attitude to have. There is nothing wrong with a little idealism or optimism, It's healthy, helps you live longer and generally makes someone more pleasant to be around

I certainly second that, the lack of optimism is what I think is wrong with the current culture of pessimism that seems to be in full force which doesn't give us anything to look forward to except sweet death.

It sounds absolutely idiotic, and it is the worst long game to play. Which is why it's what Democratic leadership is doing. Because Democratic leadership is controlled opposition. The reality of the situation is there are three groups in the Democratic party. The corporate Dems, actual populist progressives, and the regressive left.

Corporate Dems are happy to gobble up all the megadonor bucks and sit in safe districts enjoying sloppy hummers from the media while doing nothing, and blaming Republicans for their failures. Pelosi, Feinstein, Hillary, Booker, and Harris are pretty much picture-perfect examples of corporate Dems. They know they can get away with this, because their constituencies are low-information and hateful enough they'd vote for a ham sandwich if it had a (D) next to its name, and any attempt to call them out or primary them gets met instantly with allegations of spoiling elections and bigotry.

Speaking of the regressive left...corporate Dems corral and pied piper the regressive left with woke bullshit, and regressive leftists are more than happy to self-police and make sure nobody leaves the Democrat plantation through gaslighting and accusations of wrongthink. Because the regressive left is a goddamn cult.

Which is how you get ridiculous bullshit like Hillary, a self-professed "reformed" Goldwater Republican and Southern Democratic transplant who stanned for the most racist shit passed out of Washington since the end of Jim Crow, up on stage spouting woke nonsense she clearly despises to thunderous applause.

Meanwhile, the actual populist progressives just sit over in a corner saying "what the shit?" and tactically voting because what the fuck else are they going to do? 2016 changed the game, because it woke a lot of people up to the shenanigans corporate Democrats pull behind the scenes to stay in power, and how little they actually do in comparison. Populist progressivism is back in the game, and with a vengeance.

Which brings us to people like AOC and Tulsi. Not redpilled, but definitely off the reservation. It's half woke bullshit, half populist progressivism, but they're taking corporate Democrats to task for being greedy, lazy fucks who talk the woke talk but don't back up their rhetoric with action. The woke shit isn't the threatening part, corporate Dems have that locked down; the threatening part is the populism. If that spreads, the threat of recalls and primary challenges its head, and Democrats have to do their fucking jobs for once which threatens the donor pipeline.

Uh...there was this thing called the Soviet Union and it was kept in check by the US military having bases all over the world to keep them in line.

You know Russia didn't disappear just because the Soviet Union went away, right?

It was the US who aided the SU for years before... there would have been no need for troops in europe if the US stayed out.

Russia has the GDP of Holland. and their goal is to hold on to the Core of the SU, they dont have the manpower to invade any western country.

You'd think that but their allies are just as evil and bloodthirsty as they are. Iran, North Korea, China, etc. are pure evil who will stop at nothing to conquer the planet.
