From this thread on the creature known as the Moderate Democrat.
Let’s talk “Moderate” Democrats. First off, today’s “Moderate” Democrats exist because the Far-Right defines political discourse in America. When people say they want “Moderate” Democrats, what they really mean is they want politicians who aren’t Republicans. By default, these non-Republican moderates cede all political rhetoric and policy development to the Republicans.
Hello readers who may still be out there! As you know, this site has been on hiatus for a while, as I’ve had to attend to other life issues.
I’m not quote ready to go back to writing full-blown essays on this site. HOWEVER. I have been somewhat active on Twitter of late, particularly by writing threads relating to political and cultural issues. So, as a means of posting some form of writing on this site, I thought I’d start posting my Twitter threads in paragraph form here.
Thus, content here with be short and to the point for a while, but hey, it’s a sign of life, right?! I’m going to start by posting threads I’ve already written, so they’ll be less “essay” and more “musing.” But at least they’ll be quicker to read, no? Stay tuned for the first new post on That Devil History in quite a while.
