Looting the Political Left

“Instead of fighting for the victory that was stolen from him, he praised the people who stole the victory from him. He was afraid to win. He didn’t want to win, and that’s why he’s never questioned his defeat.”

- Dmitry Babich, Political Analyst, Sputnik International, commenting on Bernie’s Sander’s Presidential campaign.

In my attempts to understand the failure of the left to capitalize on the 2016 progressive awakening, I’ve not come across a more concise critique of Bernie Sanders, and by extension his political and social media operatives, faux leftists’ stealthily shepherding disillusioned progressives back into the Democratic Party political tent.

Colosseum

Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the national anthem sends a powerful message – to increase the volume and channel dissenting voices in the direction of a deaf (and dumb) nation.

Silver Bullet

Progressives seemingly can’t distinguish the difference between political party loyalty and political leverage, rendering their crusade transfixed between harnessing the power of an emergent movement and shaping it.  It’s paralysis by analysis.  So desperate are Progressives for the direction they’re unable to distinguish sheepdogs from liberators and prophets from profiteers. Exploited, abandoned, and betrayed by […]

An Elaborate Hustle

How many of you follow “The Young Turks?”  Sorry, you’ve been played.  Unless of course, you insist on getting news analysis from yet another assemblage of self-appointed “progressive activists” interpreting left-leaning political discourse.  

Off With Their Heads

T he Queen of Chaos is dead.  Politically, speaking.  The only thing left to do – to build a truly progressive agenda – is to guillotine (politically speaking, of course) the remaining members of her royal court.

Only Women Can Save Us

It’s early April, a typical Seattle rainy afternoon. I’m staring out my home office window, nursing a Negra Modelo, and for no apparent reason my mind drifts to differences between men and women. I’m a man. I know men. I’ve played with them, worked with them, competed against them, fought with and against them, hired […]

The Baker Within Us

I’m a slice of marbled bread, surrounded by white loaves, captive in a baker’s rack, waiting to be displayed in the storefront counter. “Whiteness” in the appetite of man eludes and, at times, overwhelms me.  Embedded in every conceivable medium, archived for posterity, true or not. Its myths secure, legends immortalized, legacies glorified. What about the rye and pumpernickel […]

Bye-bye Bernie

Bernie, you damn near did the impossible. You showed us the Promised Land – just beyond the horizon. Thank you. Seriously, thank you. But you made the same mortal mistake all REFORMERS make. You believed you could start a revolution and right a corrupt system from WITHIN the castle.
