    Even a lot of progressives don't like Jimmy Dore and he doesn't like a lot of progressives. He doesn't like republicans or Moderates either. Give him a few years and he will be the new Alex Jones.

    I think it would really suck if someone punched Dolly Parton or Betty White in the face. Jimmy Carter, I think I would mind if someone punched him in the face. Can't think of anyone else at the moment.
    If someone punched Betty White in the face, I will make an exception to my opposition to the death penalty.

    And if you look at their decision on who to pick in their FP it's not exactly hard to figure out.
    Believe me, I am aware of the obvious bias — I mean, to say that Trump really had an agenda at all is a stretch — but the issues mentioned (along with others, such as improving infrastructure) were definitely part of the 2016 campaign rhetoric.

    I actually think it adds up to compliment to Biden, as unintentional as that may be.

    I'd definitely credit Bernie before Trump

    Biden was and remains in a classic saddle position with regards to the border. He was pissing off the left by not rolling back these Trump administration refugee caps (among other Trump era things he's not addressing). But also, obviously, he's driving the right insane over millions of imaginary refugees that pose an imaginary threat on their lives, despite not actually taking a bold or progressive approach to the issue. It's early, but both sides clearly have been displeased.

    But this is a step in the right direction. Glad he's reversed his stance. Glad Primila Jayapal and others came for his ***. Hope you saw it, Spock.

    And this sudden leftward turn feels similar to what we're seeing out of Schumer and especially Cuomo (pardon my NY bias). Both feel the flames and they've suddenly both remembered they can actually be progressives.

    That's good! They're being held to high standards! Sometimes being critical of things Dems do or don't do is good! Wow. What a concept.
    Yup

    Biden is a ****ing idiot if he decided to keep the trump era low numbers on refugees.

    I don't think neither him or Bri are actual progressive. Just left wing version of people like Limbaigh. Taking advantage of peoples anger. They're in it for the money.

    Both their condescension toward Bernie and Chomsky is ****ing pathetic. And them using their movement to only damage and profit from it is so awful.

    I'm definitely for letting in refugees. Especially from countries we've bombed to hell.

    Immigration has never been a huge factor in my voting though. Always been a topic used to gain votes more than anything.

    Biden trying to keep this wave of approval going tell the midterms. And with Trump destroying their original strategy I'm sure that what the GOPs plan of attack is.

    They can’t find one.

    Biden centrist agenda is not something they can really **** on and feed fear mongering to their base.

    I have more of a problem with his tactic than what he is pushing. If you were truly aware of Dore, you would know he is anything but condescending towards Bernie and Chomsky. In fact, he has been attacking Both for being limped wrist progressive pandering to Biden and Pelosi. He rails against progressives who aren't progressive enough for him, including the Squad. You should be cheering him on, he is slinging barbs at the progressive from the left while the mod, including yourself, are slinging from the right. You, know that whole the enemy of my enemy thing.

    You can quit worrying about radical leftists like Chomsky or Higgins, they are ban from network news and establish newspapers. A little cancel culture the right or mods. don't bit ch about.

    That is why the fools try to paint him as a progressive or a progressive controlled moderate.

    They keep trying to find something but so far they haven't had much luck. Outside of people who bought into the Big Lie, they aren't getting any traction.

    Couldn't find any of the environment/GND threads in the first 4-5 pages so I'll just put this here. Not anything directly to do with Biden but, obviously, I do hope he's VERY bold on these matters.

    Pretty cool to see.

    Coal Miners Union Seeks Voice in Move to Renewable Energy: Live Updates

    https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/04...hange-for-jobs

    The country’s largest mine workers union signaled on Monday that it would accept a transition away from fossil fuels in exchange for new jobs in renewable energy, spending on technology to make coal cleaner and financial aid for miners who lose their jobs.

    “There needs to be a tremendous investment here,” Cecil E. Roberts, the president of the United Mine Workers of America, said in an interview. “We always end up dealing with climate change, closing down coal mines. We never get to the second piece of it.”

    The mine workers’ plan, which Mr. Roberts is presenting at an event with Senator Joe Manchin, Democrat of West Virginia, calls for the creation of new jobs in Appalachia through tax credits that would subsidize the making of solar panel and wind turbine components, and by funding the reclamation of abandoned mines that pose a risk to public health.

    The union wants the federal government to support miners who lose their jobs through retraining and by replacing their wages, health insurance and pensions.
    HELLO

    Trump would have been destroyed by media if he had called someone Asian, a Japanese boy. but this is what Biden said.

    https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/stat...67893563707394
    "you've got a Japanese boy coming over here, and guess what, he won the Masters."


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    a person is smart. people are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals.
