Have to say I am feeling besieged by some of the Caban supporters. The more I see and hear I
want to run from them. Can I please be allowed some space to make up my own mind?
 Thanks.

i hadn't noticed that, but i do support her (quietly)

 my problem is with the Katz people, who robocall twice a day. once around 10 AM and once at six-ish. the call starts out the same every time, and it's always from a different number -- spoofed, maybe?

 Funny that we haven't had a single robocall from anyone. It's just the street harassment. My
neighbor is now calling them the "Aggressive's Party".

The Queens Democratic Party is going crazy with the whole Cabán selection. If Katz loses it spells doom for the party heads. Interesting to watch.

The real reason the Queens machine is pushing Katz (an obvious party hack with no criminal experience) along with Governor is to protect the corrupt criminals who run our government. This all but assures that these people feeding off the backs of hardworking people never are held to account for their corrupt assignments of positions or awarding of contracts to their members of families and donors. They know with Katz at the helm, the fix is in and all that is needed to stop an investigation is a phone call. Remember the former heads of the Assembly and Senate are in prison. This is how corrupt our system is. One party rule does this and it will now accelerate with the Senate in Democratic hands.

Socialists really love their identity politics. Shaun King didn't even get out of the car for JH, but the Caban contingent was happy to parade pasty white LGBTQ activist Cynthia Nixon for our feels.

Gross.

You make me chuckle, JK. Do you think--by any stretch, that the Democratic Socialists don't engage in similar corrupt practices? It's the nature of the beast. Politics IS power. You cheat/lie/steal to get it and worse to keep it. The Real Justice PAC is funding Caban. You trust Shaun King?!!!

You can't be serious. You play the devil's advocate.

All politics is identity politics. It's just when the status quo is mentioned it comes from a place of pure reason and universality, whereas when anyone who is from a minority group DARES to point out oppression, right-wing nuts SCREAM O MY GOD IDENTITY POLITICS
e.g.

 ....not addressing a racially discriminatory status quo in policing is itself a choice.Indeed, it's a kind of identity group appeal — to white people, whose preferred means of striking the balance between liberty and security, in many contexts, is that security should be achieved by depriving other people of their civil liberties.

FDR was a socialist.

conservatives of the time said he would burn America to the ground with insane, radical, untenable ideas like Social Security and the WPA.

yep. socialism is scary stuff.

I see the position of DA as having the power to criminally go after certain people. It is the Democratic Party that could not produce a viable candidate with experience. Most people plea even if innocent because they can’t afford to fight the charges. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.

The irony of the tribalism of identity politics is that when the minority gets the power they are equally discriminatory towards others as the previous status quo. (Besides their own tribe.)

Folks are naive to think otherwise.

And what am I supposed to take from Katz that she impregnated herself with sperm from Curtis Sliwa? I used to watch Sliwa on cable and have noted his anti minority dialogue on many occasions. She must find him and his views amusing. Doesn’t this whole background give anyone concern?

Did any candidate sleep with Ron Kuby? If so, they've got my vote.

Che, I can only guess at what makes your brain work the way it does.

You use zero sum argument against the prevailing winds. That doesn't even make sense. If white is your issue b/c it dominates the political culture, than it would have less incentive to destroy what racists perceive as "the enemy." If anything, it is the other way around. I suggest that it's the radicals that are employing such tactics to strip power from the existing institutions.

A looong time ago, long before Sliwa, Katz was known/perceived to be lesbian. I sort of think it's true, having known her when I myself was in politics. If true, she has not used that identity to pander for the LGBTQ vote.

Cabal DID this weekend. Disgusting.
