Did everyone forget about the concentration camps that are still open?

Hell, we found out about forced hysterectomies and even the most ardent "Still with her!" accounts and politicians haven't said peep about it, much less taken any action.


Why won't those lousy democrats stop the republicans!  Oh wait, they can't.  The GOP controls the judiciary, the senate and the White House.  They can hold hearings after hearings.  But it won't get anything done.  The public at large doesn't care.  So shame on us as a country.  But showing everyone how weakness of the democrats' position won't help anything.

But keep trying to fracture the democrats, I'm sure Trump, McConnell  and Putin would thank you.

You don't get to tell me I'm trying to fracture the Democrats while also telling me the Democrats were right to vote to fund concentration camps and are right to have done nothing about any of it for the last year. The Democrats are obviously united in their support for the camps and the human rights violations occurring in them, and they have your full support, too.

And since I'm not on board with those things, I'm not a Democrat.

Barrett's confirmation is a foregone conclusion.
Impeaching Barr
1) would  be a waste of time.  The Senate doesn't have the votes.
2) would be seen as politically motivated at this point in the election
3) might unify Republican voters at the polls
4) would only delay confirmation by a week. Maybe.

ACB is going to be confirmed. The Supreme Court is lost for now.  Get through the election, and hopefully the Democrats will control the White House and Congress. Then we'll see what they have in store for the Judicial Branch.

The answer, as ever, is to not fund farking concentration camps. Full stop.
You're Vichy frenching fascist boot leather if you suggest there's any other alternative.

And no, Biden has made no indication that he's going to do anything about the camps besides noncommital poltician speak. He could simply run on "CLOSE THE CAMPS", but Democrats never met a simple, impactful slogan that they wouldn't eviscerate into noncommital politican speak.

This is simply one person's read of Biden's record and his best guess at his motivations.

And Hillary saying single payer isn't going to happen?  That isn't her saying it shouldn't happen.  That's the (perhaps jaded) voice of someone who was brutalized trying to make it happen.

So, again, your evidence of a widespread fascist core to the moderate wing of the Democratic party is weak sauce.

Sorry, my campaigning for a progressive was cut short when out-of-state donors, probably the same ones who've helped Dianne Feinstein stay in power, decided an empty uniform with no legislative experience was more suited to defeat Mitch McConnell than a black progressive with actual legislative experience for, *ahem*, reasons.

But you can phone bank for me this go-round, you still got so much faith in a self-styled opposition party that hasn't done shiat.


Weird.  But you are aware you can phone bank, as I did, for candidates in OTHER districts?  I mean, it's really quite easy.

But, no, probably better to spend your time on fark dot com tearing down the only current possible power structure to challenge Donald Trump and his fascist GOP enablers.  I mean, it's what any patriot would do.

There are 2 reasons they should absolutely do this:

1. Barr should be impeached because he has proven over and over again that he needs to be impeached.
2. It would delay Barrett's confirmation.

Considering that the majority of the country wants both of these things to happen, I really cannot imagine why the FARK they won't do it.

I mean c'mon, man...  The GOP is planning on subverting the will of the majority.  And they are going to do everything in their power to do just that.  So why they FARK won't the Democrats do something to block it?!

This IS the time.  The election is basically well underway.  They can't be concerned about this being a political move that might affect it.

Every time you people make this confirmation about some mythical "protest vote" boogeyman that exists only in your head, I will remind you of all the people who actually had a documented effect on the results of 2016.

- Republican voters
- White people, specifically white women
- Rich people
- Old people
- James Comey thumbing the scale in the 9th inning
- Hillary Clinton being a bad candidate with ample baggage

These people actually exist, unlike the Protest Voter Who Decided The Entire Election who frolics with jackalopes in your fever dreams.

So the ninety million people who didn't vote in 2016 conceivably would not have had any type of impact on the election had they voted? Fascinating!

Lower voter turnout is great for Democrats says everyone ever!


2020 will be the first time in my life that "I'm not the other guy" is a winning election strategy. I'd suggest finding better candidates with better arguments and policies in the future, otherwise you're not giving those millions of people much reason to get to the polls.

Bovine Diarrhea Virus: Barrett's confirmation is a foregone conclusion.
Impeaching Barr
1) would  be a waste of time.  The Senate doesn't have the votes.
2) would be seen as politically motivated at this point in the election
3) might unify Republican voters at the polls

4) would only delay confirmation by a week. Maybe.

ACB is going to be confirmed. The Supreme Court is lost for now.  Get through the election, and hopefully the Democrats will control the White House and Congress. Then we'll see what they have in store for the Judicial Branch.


Remember when Fark ProgressivesTM demanded Trump be impeached ASAP because, goddammit, we had to do it and it was going to make a huge difference?  Well, that was less than a year ago and I think it's safe to say not a single mind was changed by the impeachment.  So now the subject has come again except this time around, there's a chance it may hurt the Dems chances of getting elected by making a blatantly partisan move this close to the election.  No one has any doubt to the outcome, just as no one doubts that Mitch can simply change the Senate rules today and just ignore any impeachment.  But the chance to hurt the Democrats has got Fark ProgressivesTM here salivating like never before.  Gee, why might that be?

"If you criticize Democrats for throwing in the towel on concentration camps, you're just some sort of saboteur and you're what's REALLY wrong with America and you don't count as a liberal" has got to be some of the most sickening sh*t ever typed with a straight face on this site.

How on earth do you FarkDems think you have any reason or standing to demand support from people when you type sh*t like that.

Seriously, go join the Republican party. Most of you here are in denial about who they really are. Just get it over with and go be the Republicans you truly are, since concentration camps seem like just a "oopsie" to you instead of the horrific tipping point that it is to any sane and rational human who still gives a damn.


Seems like alot of these FarkDems are already part of the Republican party, especially since they use Republican talking points to put down Progressive ideas such as Single-payer healthcare: "We don't know how to pay for it." and "Sanders' plan will cause people to lose their health insurance!"; Black Lives Matter: "They're just not protesting 'The Right Way'."; Minimum Wage: "It's unfair to have a fast food worker making the same wage as an EMT!"; and other progressive ideas, many of which are successfully implemented in other industrialized countries! While at the same time, trying to convince us that Biden is the "Most progressive presidential candidate in history." I refuse to drink the Centrist/Conservative Democrats' cyanide laced Flavor-Aid drink!

Every time you people make this confirmation about some mythical "protest vote" boogeyman that exists only in your head, I will remind you of all the people who actually had a documented effect on the results of 2016.

- Republican voters
- White people, specifically white women
- Rich people
- Old people
- James Comey thumbing the scale in the 9th inning
- Hillary Clinton being a bad candidate with ample baggage

These people actually exist, unlike the Protest Voter Who Decided The Entire Election who frolics with jackalopes in your fever dreams.

Sophont: It's possible to run on other things at the same time as taking a stand for what is right. But like I said, Democrats never met a simple, impactful slogan they won't eviscerate into noncommital politician speak. With the addendum, to avoid scaring white people who will never vote for them.


It took Democrats years just to be able to say "Black Lives Matter" and it's going to take them another decade or so to back policy that aligns with the idea there. Just like they're on board with saying "healthcare is a human right" because it's easy to say, even if they don't mean a single word of it. And it's why they have been working to put a stop to the anti-police protests ever since "defund the police" became a thing, they can't have something silly like good policy ideas getting in the way of what their donors want.

AdmirableSnackbar: webron: AdmirableSnackbar: bluejeansonfire: Yeah. I'm sure the Democrats who have let the concentration camps stay open this whole time and let their most senior members continue to hug fascists and hand them victories are definitely the same people who will jump right on impeaching the man who once taunted them to bring their handcuffs. /s

Did everyone forget about the concentration camps that are still open?

Hell, we found out about forced hysterectomies and even the most ardent "Still with her!" accounts and politicians haven't said peep about it, much less taken any action.

Why won't those lousy democrats stop the republicans!  Oh wait, they can't.  The GOP controls the judiciary, the senate and the White House.  They can hold hearings after hearings.  But it won't get anything done.  The public at large doesn't care.  So shame on us as a country.  But showing everyone how weakness of the democrats' position won't help anything.

But keep trying to fracture the democrats, I'm sure Trump, McConnell  and Putin would thank you.

You don't get to tell me I'm trying to fracture the Democrats while also telling me the Democrats were right to vote to fund concentration camps and are right to have done nothing about any of it for the last year. The Democrats are obviously united in their support for the camps and the human rights violations occurring in them, and they have your full support, too.

And since I'm not on board with those things, I'm not a Democrat.


A-f*cking-men.

Skleenar: EyeballKid: And this is what will happen every time someone tries to push Biden left.

Or, go the fark out and campaign for a progressive, like I did last night.

But, sure, of course going on fark.com and moaning that democrats are just as bad, if not worse than trump will certainly fix things.


Sorry, my campaigning for a progressive was cut short when out-of-state donors, probably the same ones who've helped Dianne Feinstein stay in power, decided an empty uniform with no legislative experience was more suited to defeat Mitch McConnell than a black progressive with actual legislative experience for, *ahem*, reasons.

But you can phone bank for me this go-round, you still got so much faith in a self-styled opposition party that hasn't done shiat.

Yeah, The Rules also said that Lindsay Graham couldn't hold a vote to pass Barrett's nomination out of the Judiciary Committee without at least two minority members present - wanna guess how long those rules held Graham up?


Which, I think, should give Dems the leverage to impeach and remove her even if she's confirmed. Broke the rules to appoint a judge? The process is declared null and void.

What would you like the Democrats to have done? Do you think that if Biden wins that he won't do anything?

Maybe you're just a troll. Or maybe you're Fark Independent (tm).

The answer, as ever, is to not fund farking concentration camps. Full stop.
You're Vichy frenching fascist boot leather if you suggest there's any other alternative.

And no, Biden has made no indication that he's going to do anything about the camps besides noncommital poltician speak. He could simply run on "CLOSE THE CAMPS", but Democrats never met a simple, impactful slogan that they wouldn't eviscerate into noncommital politican speak.


No political party in the US can run on a platform of "stop kicking POC around" and win. It doesn't motivate enough white people in the right geographical areas to take over the Senate.

durbnpoisn: There are 2 reasons they should absolutely do this:

1. Barr should be impeached because he has proven over and over again that he needs to be impeached.
2. It would delay Barrett's confirmation.

Considering that the majority of the country wants both of these things to happen, I really cannot imagine why the FARK they won't do it.

I mean c'mon, man...  The GOP is planning on subverting the will of the majority.  And they are going to do everything in their power to do just that.  So why they FARK won't the Democrats do something to block it?!

This IS the time.  The election is basically well underway.  They can't be concerned about this being a political move that might affect it.

Goddammit, Democrats! DO IT!!  Farking DO IT!!


I think seeing her get confirmed will be the best selling point to get the apathetic and third-party voters to see the consequences and your for Biden.

Hopefully we can expand the SCOTUS to 15 or something if we have a blue wave.

He can change the Senate's rules at the drop of a hat, and in any way he likes.

Changing the Standing Rules should require a 3/5 majority, which presently only applies to limiting debate. Otherwise, someone like Mitch -- who controls a majority of the Senate absolutely and doesn't have to worry about any the GOP senators leaving the flock -- can do absolutely anything.
