How many times have Democrats taken our campaign contributions and then slammed the door shut in our faces? How many times have Democrats we gave money to, phonebanked for, campaigned for, and defended from RePug attacks slammed that door shut once they got elected?
How many times?
That’s how many times.
Am I pissed off? You’re fucking right I’m pissed off.
I’ve supported Democrats for 40 years. Despite all their betrayals, I felt I had no choice. I told myself they were the lesser of two evils. I told myself incremental change is better than no change at all. But nothing has changed. Nothing will ever change if progressives keep supporting the Democratic branch of the Corporate Fascist Party.
Obama talked the talk in 2008. Democrats talked the talk. I gave them one last chance to walk the walk. They’re telling us they’re doing that, but the walking they’re doing now is the same walking they’ve always done.
One step forward.
And two steps back.
It’s time for progressives to show Democrats what walking the walk looks like. It is time for us to grow the fuck up, it’s time for us to grow the fuck up and walk out of the “Democratic” Party, it’s time for us to turn our backs on those moral cowards and walk into the future without them.
