Getting out of Afghanistan is a policy mistake. But it could also be a political disaster for Biden. People say they're tired of the war. But how will they react to the spectacle of a withdrawal's horrendous aftermath–oppression, brutality, refugees?— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) June 29, 2021
Please, @POTUS: Reconsider.
Look at who is celebrated on CNN and MSNBC.
Every single day it is the whole tribe of discredited neocons from Bill Kristol to Max Boot to Liz Cheney who are given prominent platforms and air time. It’s a new progressive era.
In the new progressive era, we can’t raise taxes on the wealthy. We can’t tax Wall Street. We can’t tax Corporate America. We have Bernie Sanders caving on the SALT deduction. We can’t pass a $15 minimum wage. We don’t even talk about the public option in health care or Medicare for All. Instead, we spend all of our time talking about a useless January 6th commission and sucking up to Pentagon generals and bringing on the FBI and CIA to talk about how woke and awesome they are under Joe Biden.
Shitlibs and True Cons are merging in the new Democratic Party. The worst of both worlds of neoliberalism – cultural liberalism and economic liberalism – is what we are getting under Joe Biden as the Democratic Party slowly and inexorably evolves into the old Republican Party in drag with AIDS.
