This little gem was posted recently in a Facebook Group I’m in.
I asked a series of questions that have yet to be answered. Perhaps someone reading this who shares the sentiments of this meme can offer their responses.
I have to ask, who will satisfy this demand of yours?
Name names, please. Name at least three, and if you’re really committed to this idea, please tell us why you think any of them will win in the Party primary and then in the general. Because that’s what Hillary did, the caveat being, of course, that she lost the EC but won the popular vote.
I’m very confused and concerned whenever I see this kind of demand from fellow lefties, so I ask are you actually demanding that the Party whose last candidate handily won their primary and who got more popular votes than Trump is supposed to now surrender everything over to the demands of people who may not even belong to the Party and who seemingly are ok with a scorched earth if they don’t get their way?
Are you saying you just don’t care what Trump and the Republicans are already doing to this country and to the world, and that you’ll be happy to see it continue so long as you can feel all self-righteous about thrusting your metaphorical thumb into the eye of Party leaders as some sort of supposed punishment?
Are you saying you don’t care what happens to social safety net programs, the environment, the economy, and all the other things that Trump is already damaging, and you’ll go so far as to not voting for a Democrat you deem not to be sufficiently pure?
Is that what this is about?
Has Trump taught you nothing?
And to all my fellow progressives and liberals, I say this: Either Trump is our fault and we must own him, or he’s not.
Stop trying to have it both ways.
