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 the DNC and Democratic Party establishment, they can’t discern authenticity from duplicity. And who can blame them? Well, I can. So, too, must you.
