It’s a scenario familiar to many Progressives — establishment Democrats accusing you of being a Trump supporter if you won’t toe their Vote Blue No Matter Who line. It seems to escape these folks that calling out the DNC on its fuckery is not an automatic endorsement of the Orange Anal Wart. Binary black and white thinking at its finest.

Because here’s the thing Clintonite neoliberal Dems — it’s not just the Republicans that revile you. The left despises you as well. The real left.

So, here are three reasons why the Democratic Party deserves more cans of whup-ass than the GOP. Which, let’s face it, is like shooting fish in a barrel considering who’s in the White House.

The Republican Party will not only willingly, but gleefully, point out the myriad of ways they dont give a shit about you. They openly and vociferously oppose any legislation that might benefit their constituents as opposed to their donors. They know where those ranches and beach houses come from, and it’s not the peasants.

The GOP party leaders are clear on their priorities ($) and have no issues with exacerbating the plight of the poor and sick. In fact, they will tell you all about how they have no issues with it until your eardrums suicide themselves in self-defense. It’s disgusting to be sure, but at least there’s no nuance or word salad to interpret.

On the other hand, today’s Democratic Party is trying to convince you they’re still the same guys that gave us FDR and JFK. The diehard Blue Dog Dems still buy it (or at least they pretend to), but…
