that’s a good post, but maybe it’s just an intractable situation at this point and the democrats would be better splitting, idk. the establishment dems won’t move left due to donor concerns and lack of focus on class, and the socialist wing can’t and shouldn’t compromise on fundamental issues like healthcare, abortion rights, minimum wage etc.
there’ve been some especially spectacular crash and burns on twitter this week with black/women/lgbtq bernie/socialist dems calling out kamala harris/other centrist candidates and being attacked for racism/misogyny before the white liberals realise what the socialist person’s identity is. at which point they block the socialist poc/lgbtq user. <<<too many dashes. speaks to how fundamentally the democrats are stalemated, distracted and adrift. it’s really only GOP incompetence preventing what should be a relatively straight forward series of hard right constitutional/social lurches
