      The people in my personal sphere that are Bernie supporters are also narcissists in their own right. They bully, they are self centered, they derail other people through sabotage or diminishment. To a person they all have inner lives that are broken. So far nothing I’ve seen from the Sanders camp is any different than the entitlement we see with Trump supporters and their leader. Entitled to steal, entitled to coerce, entitled to all the double standards they want in order to get what they want. Oh and the fake victimhood is classic. Their DARVO is consistent as well, deny, attack, reverse victim and oppressor.

      I don’t listen to Sarah Kendzior anymore when I learned how much she dislikes and distrusts President Obama.

      • April 30, 2019 at 7:44 am

        She knows a lot about authoritarianism and has made some very good points about where we’re headed but lately she’s been very agro, taking ugly pot shots at PBO and constantly and aggressively whining “I TOLD YOU SO.” She’s picking fights with other academics on twitter and just generally really going off. I’m not listening anymore.

      The real pressure needs to be brought on Senate Republicans. The Democrats are doing what they can but the real change needs to be in the Senate. Every Democrat will vote to impeach I think. If we keep beating up on our own we miss the point. Again we assume responsibility for the GOP corruption and mess. We need to let the GOP have it in our criticism and not stop till they get him out.

    • April 30, 2019 at 5:48 pm

      Me too, but I trust that she will do the right thing for herself, the country, AND Georgia. I would love to see her unseat Kemp but was kinda looking forward to seeing her kick Perdue’s butt.

      Me too 😦 I hope she continues the fight full throated on eradicating blatant voter suppression in Georgia and across the nation. Can any Democractic candidate win that Senate seat in GA with all the shenanigans heck crimina/illegal ish Kemp put in place in 2018? Kemp needs to be under the jail.

    Education and fighting fascism.
    “It is hard to imagine a more urgent moment for making education central to politics…Such a movement is important to resist and overcome the tyrannical fascist nightmares that have descended upon the United States, Brazil and a number of other countries in Europe plagued by the rise of neo-Nazi parties…Education, both in its symbolic and institutional forms, has a central role to play in fighting the resurgence of fascist cultures, mythic historical narratives and the emerging ideologies of white supremacy and white nationalism…
    In part, this can be done with a language that exposes and unravels falsehoods, systems of oppression and corrupt relations of power while making clear that an alternative future is possible. (https://truthout.org/articles/fascism-is-on-the-march-we-need-radical-education-to-fight-back/)
    –How to direct the growing numbers of ignorant racist white voters so enamored and cultivated by the right, towards College.

      (We know the planet is burning. Even so):
      “The good news is that there is an increasing wave of strikes by teachers, public servants, and workers both in the United States and abroad who are resisting the cruel machinery of exploitation, racism, austerity and disposability unleashed by neoliberalism in the past 40 years. If fascism is to be defeated, there is a need to make education an organizing principle of politics.”

      Fact: “Nearly all abortions in Norway today are performed with the abortion pill Mifepristone.
      This has resulted in shorter waiting time, earlier abortions, and the possibility to have abortions at home.
      The Scandinavian countries and Scotland have the largest percentage of medical abortions in the world.”
      —Some time ago I read a Scandinavian magazine describing how women are open about taking the abortion pill, open with their mothers and partners and without shame. Many women choose to do it at home, they do it early, and without secrecy. It was moving to read about women mourning the loss in their own ways, and the gentle, humane processing of woman’s reality.

    Amb. Caroline Kennedy joined the Institute of Politics for a conversation of the art of diplomacy. Ms. Kennedy discussed her work as a former U.S. Ambassador to Japan from 2013-2017, her career in public service, and the current diplomatic challenges facing the United States. This conversation was moderated by Ivo H. Daalder, president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and former U.S. Ambassador to NATO.

    Tomorrow we learn the answer to the question asked of every Dem member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    It’s no longer acceptable for ANY Senator claiming to be serving the American People and honoring their Oath of Office to tolerate Barr, in any way.

    He is enabling a criminal, illegitimate occupant of the White House to do harm every second he’s not evicted and prosecuted.

    Recommendation as to how most effectively to cast Barr – for the American People – to observe.

    Asking him a question guarantees a waste of time and more of his propaganda being aired.
