    depends on what ppl are posting. you'd be surprised.
    I think several of us in this thread, if we post the way we do elsewhere, might have "observers" tbh.
    its why I try to bite my tongue and not go "too far."

    off topic but I used to be an active graffiti writer. the min I went home (flew home) and posted pics I had mad cops try to follow my IG and a person known to set ppl up tried to hit me up to meet up.
    that's just graffiti.
    imagine saying something that inspires. tentacles have a long reach. lots of ppl from other lands are embedded...
    even when you look around off line. ijs.

    Got just about ALL angles covered with a Donny Jr., Portnoy, and AOC grudge-fight about to happen :lol: :smh:

    But seriously, Dave Portnoy is trash.

    Save for Spittin' Chiclets, I hate barstool.

    The WaPo reporters are probably right that Bezos doesn't control day to day operations nor does he weigh in on election coverage. WaPo reporters are already millionaires or at least members of the PMC so they crap on Bernie and working people all on their own volition.

    Now, you better believe that coverage of Amazon is influenced by Bezos' inetrests and Bezos bought the WaPo to shape the narrative about Amazon, in particular and regulation and antitrust as it relates to big tech, in general.

    Watching a bunch of rich, millionaire liberals cape for their billionaire industrialist Boss, who own the second most important newspaper reminds me of Adam H. Johnson's simple but penetrating insight, why is it that Russian billionaires are "Oligarchs" but not American billionaires?

    What I find funny is how these Soi Boys and their Bots are putting up all these ads on NT. I can't see posts by Dwalk and @whywesteppin but I can see conjecture and innuendo from Rusty, Rex and Belgium. Let's just say that this is a Soros funded attack against Coal Gang but WE will not be defeated. We aren't racist. YOU ARE LIBS.
     
  11. Serious question.

    Is there are criticism of Bernie Sanders do you take seriously?

    I’m open to and agree with criticism that comes from activists, academics and organizers. I wish Bernie would do a better job of incorporating observations of how capitalism is tightly connected with white supremacy, patriarchy and imperialism.

    What I am weary of are critiques from the bourgeois press because they are in bad faith. I am especially weary of wealthy liberals at the WaPo telling us to trust them that they are even handed when it is an outfit owned by a billionaire and run by millionaires.

  13. While there might be some validity to your argument, not every WaPo writer is a millionaire trying to defend Bezos. If a junior writer Wonkblog points out the Stop Bezos Act was poorly written, I don't think they should be dismissed on your criteria.

    Also to explore where the line is:
    So say if say someone like Krugman, or Ezra Klein points out the flaws in Sanders economic plans, they should be dissed because they are rich liberals. Even though they make a sound argument? Or if rich liberals like Adam Sewer and Coates call him out for his absolving voters motivated by racism, do you assume those are being mad in bad faith too?

    Because seems you, like many Sanders supporters, shoot the messenger once it is coming from a particular source, and only accept narrow criticism from messengers you find acceptable.

    Ahh...there he is. Ole “Great Replacement” Steve was eerily quiet after the El Paso shooting. New he’d pop out again on some dumb ****.



    Still concerned about “birth rates” and ****. Foul comments are par of the course for the most openly racist man in congress.

    and he'll keep saying outlandish things because he's not being checked because this is a complacent country. the sad and ugly truth.
    some of us care but not enough of us care.
