If people on the Left don’t keep it together, Trump will win a second term. And G-d help us all if that should occur. I’m genuinely concerned about which voices on the Left social media amplifies. They don’t represent the majority of us; and they’re going to get this asshole re-elected. (And I’m genuinely concerned that the republic would collapse should that happen. R’s in the Senate are facilitating the pumpkin’s worst impulses.)
Meanwhile, universities need to stop catering to the delicate sensibilities of the pseudo-totalitarian children. Harvard just fired a residential dean (who is a professor at the law school — and the first and only Black residential dean) because the children didn’t think one of his private law clients is entitled to a defense. (Weinstien.) They wanted him fired from the university. And beyond being wholly illiberal and teaching the children exactly the wrong things, such examples further the notion of totalitarian creep in institutions commonly associated with the “Left” as well as the Right, robbing Democrats from being able to make clear distinctions about liberal values. At least in the eyes of many in the areas Democrats must win.
