For a moment or two, I thought I was hearing an adaptation of my post from yesterday coming from Jordan Chariton's lips. But he stopped at the part where we know which Democrats have the effrontery to vote against Medicare for All during this pandemic; he did not continue on to discuss how a floor vote would also reveal the currents of evil running through the DNC and the Democratic Caucus.
Thank you, Jordan Chariton, for reminding me of what I wanted to say in Part II of this series.
The main thrust of Chariton's video entitled "In Defense of Jimmy Dore" is, y'know, defending Jimmy Dore. It addresses the recent Twitter kerfuffle involving Dore, Mother Jones contributing editor Shane Bauer, and Francesca Fiorentini (newly of The Young Turks). In it, he takes pains not to take sides specifically against Sam Seder or David Pakman, both of whom he claims not to know personally; however one might argue that siding with Dore is equivalent to siding against those two (and, by extension, Bauer), if one is inclined toward such binary thinking.
Here you will find political campaign-related entries, as well as some about my literature, Houston underground arts, peace & justice, urban cycling, soccer, alt-religion, and other topics.
