The Republican civil war was supposed to start this week.
Instead, a ferocious struggle has erupted on the left over the smoldering remains of the Democratic Party.
Liberals are seething over the election and talking about launching a Tea Party-style revolt. They say it’s the only way to keep Washington Democrats connected to the grassroots and to avoid a repeat of the 2016 electoral disaster, which blindsided party elites.
Progressives believe the Democratic establishment is responsible for inflicting Donald Trump upon the nation, blaming a staid corporate wing of the party for nominating Hillary Clinton and ignoring the Working Class voters that propelled Trump to victory.The article goes to talk about a third party if they can't take control of the Democratic/Fascists in Birkenstocks Party. Please. A Progressive Party would split the Democrat electorate quite nicely, and many people who register and vote Democrat out of family tradition would be unwilling to go Progressive.
Even better, without the corporate wing, where will they get the money to win elections? A genuine Progressive Party unwilling to let the corporations feed at the federal trough will be uninteresting to the billionaires and millionaires. This money need is why fascism forms as a heresy of progressivism. Hitler started receiving corporate funding in 1931, because the corporate interests thought the choice was National Socialism or Communism, and National Socialism would be easier to control in their interests,
