From Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter, the left has been reborn. Can it find a way to harness the populist uprising that brought Trump to power?
In late October 2011, I was volunteering at the Occupy Wall Street library in lower Manhattan. Tucked into a corner of Zuccotti Park, the library was staffed mainly by anarchists of an exceedingly orderly bent. If society were suddenly freed from coercive institutions like libraries, these people would gladly spend the morning sorting donated books by Dewey decimal numberas they were doing in the mild fall weather. I was there for only a few days, but one conversation with a book borrower has stayed with me. He was having trouble understanding why he kept returning to the encampment. He wondered: Had anything like this happened before? Were there books that could tell him who had done it, and why? I felt I was meeting a victim of a political shipwreck. In my mind, he became emblematic of a left that felt itself so unmoored from any shared past that it was puzzled by its own existence.
Now that Donald Trump occupies the White House, its easy to feel that we are all castaways in historical time..........
Last year, Bernie Sanders won more than 13 million votes. And recent polls show that a majority of Americans under the age of 30 now prefer socialism to capitalism.
Moonbats and snowflakes and radicals of all sorts.
“Its like putting your tongue in a canker sore. Whats the point? We won.
Must read from Rush today
I read the whole article. The Dems should try it some of these ideas, then they’d really be on the losing end.
The left is marginalizing themselves. 0bama’s “progress” toward communism is being rolled back and they are throwing three-year-old type fits.
I’m all for letting it all play out. And enjoy our *winning*.
“polls show that a majority of Americans under the age of 30 “
The democraphic TV advertisers pay the most for. So TV caters to them.
I am all for letting police take them down with due force and hit them with felony charges. The police should request assistance from ex-military and hunters if they cannot handle the load.
Wait till those kids have families they can hardly support due to impossibly high taxes.
I was a security guard on the gate at a large resort condominium on a Gulf Coast beach from 2005 to 2013. Every year the Spring Break crowd and the younger summer visitors appeared to be stupider than the year before and their vision closer and closer to the immediate moment. By 2010 I had decided that the country was not going to come back from from the 07 crash and Obama because these continually stupider and more self centered youths are the future Politicians and captains of industry, the leaders of our society. Our Public Education system has made recovery highly unlikely. Trump is a hiatus but I cannot believe he is more than a hiatus. There are not enough liberty oriented or even smart people and certainly hardly any actually educated people in the cohort that will rule after Trump. It is not that the non-white minorities will outnumber and swamp the American culture and nation, it is that only a tiny portion of the class whose children once had real educations, were taught to reason and read and write and figure remains, and they are almost entirely the home schoolers. There are not enough of them.
oh yes the world is awash in third world minority countries that are so great....you are quite wrong...us becoming majority non white will kill us as well as the point you correctly alluded to that not enough good folks having kids...that I agree with ....and btw involved parents can counter school bullshit ....we sure as hell do....Gulf coast where?
There are far far too few “involved parents.” I have talked perhaps a dozen people in the last 10 years into homeschooling their children but it needs to be twenty million of them and growing rapidly.
At least in the 60s the women protesters were wonderful, beautiful babes who even went topless to advertise free love. Today’s women protesters are coyote ugly with god awful tats, piercings, rat nest hair all colors of the rainbow and such foul language they would melt the brass off a door nob.
Wait until these kids try to support their families and cannot get a decent job because of their felony convictions from their lawless protest activities.
Almost no Americans will associate themselves with vile agitators who often mask themselves hurt people and destroy property.
The voting majority is watching the implosion and slow death of the left. A lot more of the voters are on to them now.
Yep, no appeasing them, trumps win was not a lets work together moment..it was a pledge to steamroller over this madness...they can get happy in the same pants they got mad in...lock em up
The reason the God-Emperor was elected was because of these people. Society got tired of seeing our prior president be a man of the mob and the rent-seekers.
