Emma described two elderly nurses as being Trump supporters to me. She held her tongue because she respects adults but reports it was really really hard to do.

POLITICAL DISSENT AND COHESION

"In the recent past, a clash between “strategic” and “prefigurative” politics could be seen in the Occupy movement. While some participants pushed for concrete political reforms—greater regulation of Wall Street, bans on corporate money in politics, a tax on millionaires, or elimination of debt for students and underwater homeowners—other occupiers focused on the encampments themselves. They saw the liberated spaces in Zuccotti Park and beyond—with their open general assemblies and communities of mutual support—as the movement’s most important contribution to social change. These spaces, they believed, had the power to foreshadow, or “prefigure,” a more radical and participatory democracy."
It is an old question in social movements: Should we fight the system or “be the change we wish to see”? Should we push for transformation within existing institutions, or should we model in our own lives a different set of political relationships that might someday form the basis of a new society?Continue Reading…

Jesse Jackson Speaks at Convention Tonight

the most moving political speech I've ever heard was his 1988 Democratic Convention speech. if you don't know this speech, you don't completely understand the Left in America. tonite's speech may be just as momentous.

"That said, a chill went down my spine when I saw private remarks from Chris Christie, regarding one of Donald Trump’s first moves, if he is elected. Reuters reports:

If he wins the presidency, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would seek to purge the federal government of officials appointed by Democratic President Barack Obama and could ask Congress to pass legislation making it easier to fire public workers, Trump ally, Chris Christie, said on Tuesday.

Why is this scary? It is literally one of the first moves made by Adolf Hitler, upon democratically attaining power.

The Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service was passed just two months after Hitler became Chancellor of Germany.

It was such a major piece of his plan to ultimately become dictator, that the Holocaust Museum notes it on their timeline of events:

The German government issues the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service (Gesetz zur Wiederherstellung des Berufsbeamtentums), which excludes Jews and other political opponents of the Nazis from all civil service positions.

Gutting government of any civil service officers who are not completely and blindly loyal to the new leader usually is one of the first moves of someone looking to become a dictator. Another act is one Trump previously voiced support for - tighter control over a free press."
As a Jew, I don't like people making Hitler comparisons. I don't like when they do it to President Obama. I didn't like when people did it to President...

Pick the President you most admire over the last 60 years. Done? Now pick your least favorite.

Now ask yourself who they would vote for in 2016 between Trump and Clinton.

I trust you got the same answer I did.

+Matt McIrvin - and then there are the rest of us, taking care of our families and wanting our system to function for our kids, wanting clear measured goals for progress that are implemented and improved.

"a workaholic do-gooder chick"

that's what Van Jones called Mrs. Clinton after Bill Clinton's speech last night

I can dig it. Look around. You know this kind of woman. They are nurses and teachers and politicians and moms and lawyers and cops and organizers and therapists. We are fortunate to have one running for POTUS.

Darkness Visible

My neighbors and I both put up BLM signs after Philando Castile was killed. Next weekend there is a block party up the street with a focus on neighbors discussing the racial tension in our city. BLM leaders will be there to provide their POV and there will be BLM yard-signs available for people to take home.

Last night two skinny, rangy-looking white guys walked by my house having a loud angry conversation between themselves about how "blacks have ruined this city" and "white lives matter" and "you should be proud to be white."

They saw me on the porch. They didn't try to meet my eyes but made sure I was hearing them. Their faces were red with anger and I could see a spray of saliva from one as he ranted in the slanting evening sun.

Today I read that Trump has a large post- convention poll bump of a size that hasn't been seen since 2000. These are SCARY DARK TIMES.

This city is about to tip over. It reminds me so much of the atmosphere of LA before the Rodney King riots. I am worried about violence between working class black and white people this summer and fall.

TRUMP HAS EMPOWERED A VERY FRUSTRATED COHORT TO FREELY EXPRESS THEIR HATRED. I COME FROM THAT CLASS OF WHITE MINNESOTANS. THEY AREN'T STUPID ASSHOLES, JUST AS BLM ISN'T.

They are invisible to liberals, poorly educated with little hope. Trump "loves" them in his opportunistic way. They have given him their hearts and minds.

Are There Enough White Men in America for Trump's Coup to Work?

Speaking on NBC after Trump’s speech, Nicolle Wallace, who worked in the George W. Bush White House, said, “The Republican Party that I worked for, for two decades, died in this room tonight.”

Adolf was elected by white men.
