Democrats WANT To Lose The Midterms: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

I’m seeing US progressive/DSA types getting more and more agitated about the sudden increase in hostility toward the Democrats from the left. What did they think was going to happen when the Dems took control of the entire government? You’re the power now, buttercup.

The problem with warning that the $2000 check scandal will lead to losses in the midterms is that Democrats are fine with losing in the midterms. You think they like having to own all their right wing bullshit for themselves? Democrats hate being exposed and vulnerable like this. They much prefer to blame their corporate cronyism, austerity policies and warmongering on an obstructionist Republican congress. They’re happy to lose the midterms. They prefer to lose the midterms.

.@AOC unveils 30-year timeframe to get Medicare for all. „If I want to have a child, I would want my child – or my nieces or nephews – to have guaranteed health care by the time they’re my age.”

House PROGRESSIVES just reelected Nancy Pelosi. Only corporate Democrats voted against her. #ForceTheVote was our best chance for a House vote on Medicare for all. The Democratic Party cannot be reformed. It’s time for a #PeoplesParty!

DSA Deny Their Own Manifesto Of Advocating #ForceTheVote

(02.01.2020)

We demand that every progressive in Congress refuse to vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House until she publicly pledges to bring Medicare for all to the floor of the House for a vote in January:

Pelosi wins Speakership for fourth time in dramatic vote

Heading into the vote, there were also open questions surrounding the intentions of several incoming progressive lawmakers — including Cori Bush (D-Mo.) and Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) — who had knocked off Democratic incumbents in the primaries and had declined to forecast how they’d vote in the Speaker’s race.

In the end, however, those newcomers declined to go after Pelosi, citing a need for Democrats to unite heading into the new Congress.

Let’s start a campaign to build toward a Democratic Socialist Party

We recognize that a viable Democratic Socialist Party will need a larger base than what DSA currently has. Alongside growing DSA, we should call on Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilahn Omar, Labor for Bernie leaders, and many other individuals, unions, and organizations to join us in taking steps towards such a working-class, democratic, membership-controlled force to advance our political revolution against the billionaire class.
