I was referring to our treatment of minorities and the environment. Which are things the liberals have helped advance. Unlike the fearmongering and vote suppression parts of the GOP have been doing.
(note for reference, if needed: I'm not liberal; I'm socialist.)
if the neoliberals cared about these things they would have ran on these policies and we wouldn't be having this discussion because Biden wouldn't be losing (or we'd have a candidate that actually cares about these things who would also not be losing). Socialist policies are incredibly popular in the United States when removed from the labels of socialism/communism (an exit poll shows 39% of americans strongly favor Government funded health plans, 33% somewhat favor--and this was run by Fox fucking News so you know they tried to make it as bad as possible).
instead they refused to do things like ban fracking, reduce the military budget (the military is the #1 contributor to greenhouse gases on top of you know, being the military), defund or abolish the police while black people continue to get murdered in the streets. Hell, the VP is a self-described super cop (who has never prosecuted a cop)
They are owned by corporations and the oligarchy, just like the GOP. But the Dems in America are designated losers. Their entire identity is built around being the underdog fighting for the right thing but they just can't get anything meaningful done because the big bad GOP just won't let them, so instead we have to settle for scraps. That's why when they have the presidency and congress they don't do shit, because they don't actually stand for any of the things they stand for. It's a big club, and we ain't in it.
You want a bright future? You don't want to be gaslit? Then question the intent of these people who claim to be on your side when they do and say things that are against their stated goals. Ask why they did everything in their power to stop Bernie Sanders in the primaries yet can't beat Donald fucking Trump (twice, TWICE).
The silver lining here is that the exit polls shows Sanders' ideas won. Not now because both candidates are shit. But they have 60-70% popularity among all voting Americans. And with the dumbass corporate Democrats losing yet again, maybe we will now have the power to take what is rightfully ours.
