What the El Paso Mass Shooting Tells Us About the Operationalization of Fascist Violence this was an incidence of political violence, not yet another in a series of "gun shootings," such as Sandy Hook, or Orlando, or San Bernardino, or Las Vegas.

Forty Short Post-Election Theses: Where We Stand Now and Where We Go From Here The Democratic party insisted on nominating a scandalous candidate not because they are stupid but because they wanted to preserve neoliberalism at all costs.

They were presented with a golden opportunity to stick it to the establishment that has been screwing us over for decades, making us all miserable (yes, even you New Yorkers), but they went with the cynical choice. And the majority of you voted knowing you were making the cynical choice.
