They still don’t ‘get it’… by ‘get it’ I don’t mean don’t see what’s happening… they ‘see’ and in many cases are/were complicit. By don’t ‘get it’ I mean don’t see that enough of us aren’t gonna play this little game. We have the numbers. They make pick up a seat or two here and there but for the most part they won’t ‘win’ without us. We are not interested in ‘changing the party’. We are uncompromising. We will not vote the lessor of 2 evils, we will not support any ol Democrat, black or progressive, we will not rally people to vote against their interest or to give their votes away without getting anything in return.
We’re not gonna go along to get along. We do not see picking up a seat here and there as a path to change… as a matter of fact, we see it as a hindrance, magical thinking that produces false hope and keeps us from exploring real alternatives.
We refuse to eat sandwiches with a side of hope. We hold no allegiance to party, leaders, candidates, movement leaders or nonprofits, only to our interests. We will no longer allow them to exploit our plight for votes, a come up or grants.
We will watch the Democratic Party apparatus to implode before we allow it to drag us down with it.
