Lol@Rogan.. says the Democratic Party has made us all feel like Morons by rapidly coalescing behind



Did Pete, Sen Amy Klobuchar, and Beto give Rogan a sad? I don't think the Democratic Party has anything to do with Joe Rogan "feeling like a Moron".

13. The Man's A Political Genius, Sir! A Freakin' Wizard!

 

"From Bernie’s perspective, dropping out of a race once you have no chance of winning is peculiar behavior that can only be explained by the work of a hidden hand. For most politicians, though, it is actually standard operating procedure. Only Sanders seems to think the normal thing to do once voters have made clear they don’t want to nominate you is to continue campaigning anyway."





"When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot."

Haven't heard from the Gravelanche for a while. Mikey is a lot like Bernie...is properly aware of many problems that need solving and often makes sense when he talks but just isn't the right person to lead the effort. He sure ain't a big Biden fan...or likes many other Democrats, for that matter...another thing he has in common with BS. Gravel-Sanders in 2024 in case Joe falls short in November!

Think Gravel runs every 4 years, kinda like Bernie's been doing lately. In that video there is a short piece where he was calling Biden arrogant during a 2008 debate. Obama and Hillary were kinda laughing at him.

Funny thing is, he says some stuff that I fully agree with. Kinda like when your crazy old uncle comes over for Thanksgiving and says "this turkey and mashed potatoes taste real good!".

We got so many crazy characters in politics today I think I need a new big clean scorecard...the one I've been using is all filled up.

If recollection serves, he managed some procedural trick that got the 'Pentagon Papers' into the Congressional Record, and with the immunity members enjoy for anything said in argument on the floor, that made attempts to censor the documents implausible at best.

Enough to dine out on for life, though hardly warrant for the Presidency all these years on....

At the time. If you had been paying attention, they were not that eye-opening. More confirmatory then revelatory.

What is going on now is like being moved back in time by about a century. People who have lived only after the Second World have experienced something unique in human existence --- an absence of any need to seriously fear some trifling complaint, a cough, a headache, a run-down feeling, might issue in death before a week had passed. We are not used to it.

57. I was barely into my teens when the Pentagon Papers hit the news

 

so naturally wasn't paying much attention at the time.

I heard a story a day or two ago about a woman who survived the 1918 flu and who had a twin baby sister die from it lost her battle against this virus. Tragic irony.

Went out for the first time in weeks earlier this week to get a few groceries. My partner had done a real good job stocking up over a couple weeks before it got really bad so we're still in real good shape for the time being. She has a badly disabled daughter she cares for who is very susceptible to a virus like this since handicapped people are a low priority should medical resources become scarce. So we figured I should be the one who does the shopping in the future to reduce the risk of exposing her.

Some people were wearing gloves and a few were wearing masks, but most like me wore nothing even though I had brought some along in the car. Felt stupid putting them on so didn't. That may change next time I go out early next week. Strange to come home and then have to isolate yourself after picking up a little bread and a couple gallons of milk...wondering if doing that simple act will end up costing you your life a week or two later.

58. No Need To Feel Stupid About Taking Precautions, Sir

 

Good of you to bear the most of the risk.

I am not just old enough, but have had heart surgery and have leukemia, which in recent years has seen me in hospital several times with pneumonia, among other things. I got out of hospital as this thing was breaking, the day the oil prices first took a tumble, and they were discovering the nursing home in Washington State. I'm no invalid, and to look at me you'd think I was healthy enough, but I am pretty much what this thing eats for breakfast on a busy day. Doctor told me to do my best imitation of a hermit, and wished me luck. I said that's about all there is, isn't it, and he agreed. We understand one another, he's a good fellow. He was even then enraged by the lack of national leadership and organization for confronting this. He must be spitting tacks by now.

Wear the damn mask, kid.

Be well, and stay safe!

To be expected though. Many of them did the same in 2016. From now on, Dems only running for the Dem nomination.

And what do these idiots think parties are for. It's to get a Dem win so the losers coalesce behind the winner—none of this blackmailing, coddle us or else stuff or we'll vote for trump or stein.

There needs to be some minimum level to be met to be considered a member of the party, other than quadrenniel convenience. I get wanting to grow the party, but running for President should require Party membership for a certain time period, or holder of an office under Dem label. Something. Anything. But random people calling themselves a Dem after years of heaping abuse on us is ridiculous.

but he'll vote for Trump. Yes, he's a moron.
I hope those who suggested that Biden is too moderate and has to appeal to "liberals" like Rogan should take note.

41. he has over a billion & a half downloads/views a year globally, probably will hit 2 billion+ in 2020

 

His tracking to make 50m USD just off his podcast downloads in 2020 (COVID-19 is boosting his numbers massively) and another 25m USD or so from other deals.

If he goes full anti-Biden, and even soft pro-Trump blowtorch, it would be a really bad thing. I know so many 18-30 year olds of all political stripes, races, countries, etc, that listen to him at least once a month, and many of them far more often. Many on this board are older and I see a lot of misunderstanding of how huge certain podcasters, and (in terms of platforms) TikTok, YouTube, Reddit, Snapchat, Instagram, Zoom, Telegram, etc are with my age cohort (I am 1996 born, so a Zennial ie. a Millenial/Gen Z cusper, dead in the middle of that massive 18-30 cohort when I turn 24 later on this year)

Tell me that is an Onion piece, please. Lie to me if you have to, I won't mind.

That just hurts my brain.

That bit of tripe at least sold millions of copies and made a rich gal out of the authoress. Sanders' 'Vermont Freeman' column can't have had more than a handful of readers.

I will have to figure out how to look it up, but in 2016 early in the 'Bernie' phenomenon, I remember reading a piece by a woman whose mother was involved with that magazine, newspaper, whatever they called it. She recalled how her mother caught Sanders raiding the refrigerator, leaning into it to really hunt for what might be way in back, and smacked him across the bottom with a broom, yelling that he should get out of their fridge. Apparently it was a semi-commune arrangement, not too uncommon at the time, and vigilance had to be exercised in the kitchen, if things bought for her family were to be preserved from the depredations of several young fellows of similar stripe to Sanders often about the place.

reminds me of some college roommates I had during my senior year when we lived just off campus. I would put food into the fridge...and the other 3 would take it out. I shoulda invested in a cheap broom!

I really didn't know too much about Bernie's past and younger life until I came to this forum and have seen some stuff posted by others. Not really liking what I'm learning and makes me think him even more unqualified to be POTUS than I originally thought. Not nearly as bad as Trump, obviously...but I hope that low bar doesn't become the new standard.

Most inhabitants of the place were vegetarians, but one woman there shared my cravings for meat, and late at night we would bicycle out to a store open all night and get a couple of steaks, which we would fry up and devour in company while the rest slept. They called us the carnivores, we called them the vegematics. There is a line from Kurt Vonnegut, that 'True horror is realizing people you went to high school with are running the country.' The realization Sanders was someone of whom I could say 'True horror is realizing one of the guys on the couch in the commune is running for President' made it permanently impossible for me to take him seriously. Admittedly by proxy, I know that man....

Good author...dropped outta my alma mater as did the singer Harry Chapin. When Harry came and gave a concert at our school once he said that he first started studying architecture there but switched to philosophy...and didn't get a degree in either. So he said not only could he not design a building, he couldn't think of anything to write on the cornerstone!

My Dad just informed me only yesterday that Dr Fauci DID graduate from my old school with his MD, so that's a good thing. As far as I can tell, he's one of the few folks in this whole rotten administration who has a clue WTF is going on. Which means it's only a matter of time before Trumps fires him.

63. No to that, tho. It's aggressive antagonistic POPULISM, all the way

 

across the spectrum.

Just look at Rogan's subscribers and the kind of guests and messages he feeds them. He chooses guests to stoke hostility and negativism in receptive types from the far left, across the center, to the right, and to the far right and on to the far left again.

(They don't speak to sensible,reasonable people from the liberal and conservative mainstreams, that large majority of Americans, or to good-hearted people of any ideology.)

As for "socialism," uhuh. Populists flock to leaders who promise them a mob to join. Despite the rhetoric of whichever leader is promising that mob, what replaces the "establishment" they destroy is far less important, some not genuinely concerned with that at all, as many studies of populist movements have proven over and over.

Nothing demonstrates that more than the movement of many of these wannabe revolutionaries between the Trump fascistic/nationalist and the Sanders LW class-warfare populist movements. The last leader standing gets them. Socialist, fascist? Something else? Whatever.

65. Sound Points, Ma'am

 

There is more overlap than many suppose, or it is comfortable to acknowledge.

It is not generally recalled that at its origin fascism was a modernizing tendency which claimed would bring ordinary folks better and more prosperous lives. The places where it took deepest root after the Great War were industrially and socially backward by compare to Western Europe, such as Spain or Hungary, or had been countries which were severely wounded as societies in the Great War, such as Italy and Germany (though Nazism is not quite fascism despite some resemblances).

What we on the left are wont to denounce as 'corporatism' was presented by promoters of fascism as bringing capitalism under control of a government that would temper the excesses of bosses. Whether the promises of betterment for all were sincere or not does not matter, because they were frequently believed.

A leading purpose of early fascist leaders was giving workers a reason for patriotism, and they understood this required material gains by the working class in the new system. They viewed capital as exploitative, often in tones quite similar to Socialist agitation, and denounced this as driving workers away from national identity and into the hands of the anti-patriot Socialists. And when in power, there was often some follow-through on these promises, though it was always accompanied by rigorous persecution of adherents of Socialist parties, or Anarchist parties, let alone of Bolsheviks or Communists. By no means all workers in these places saw such persecutions as aimed against them, or even as wrongs to be decried.

Patriotism is not only a very strong emotion, it is a popular one. People want to love their country, to view it as a good thing, and to identify with it. Without the 'internationalism' Socialist agitation incorporated from its earliest days, the movement might have gone a good deal further.

76. That overlap of personality traits among insurgents left and right.

 

Well, virtually everyone needs reasons and excuses for their decisions, and so we all adopt a fine-sounding set that suits our preferences.

“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American people.”

“I am prepared to take on the political establishment, to take on the corporate establishment, and stand up for the working class of this country.”

Populist leaders Sanders and Trump, and obviously does't matter who said which. They're both using the same sales pitches on the same targets: FIRST the virtuous and righteous "people" must take down "the establishment." Classic populist fuel.

He is another example of the self-styled libertarians who think participation in democratic processes is an exercise for chumps. He is nothing more than one of today's iconoclasts. He appeals to the disaffected, the disturbed, and the disinclined to take anyone but themselves into consideration.

In short, he is of no account, politically, nor are his avid listeners, who seem to believe that listening to Rogan podcasts is participation enough.

The path to victory lies in large turnout in the urban metro and suburban areas of Detroit, Cleveland, Philly, Miami, and Milwaukee, college educated Whites, and some non-college educated Whites in the states of FLA, PA, MI, OH, and WISC.

Joe Rogan's demographic is largely male, non-college educated, and lives in big blue states like CA and NY. He cannot swing an election one way or another.
