"These people say they're patriots. But they're not. It's not patriotic to want your leaders to fail. I for one wish Trump had succeeded in preventing 1000s of people dying daily from Covid. But he didn't. So now...I hope Biden succeeds."
Me, last night:
Sen. @marcorubio: "We now have a president who talks like a centrist but is governing from the far left and we're not going be able to just sit around here in a honeymoon period and watch these things happen."
"In the crowd that day were 13 members of state Houses or Assemblies; 3 state senators; a county commissioner; a city council member; a GOP congressional district chair; a district director & a co-chair of the Michigan Republican Party." @letsgomathias:
"A Yang administration will push back against the BDS movement...Not only is BDS rooted in antisemitic thought and history, hearkening back to fascist boycotts of Jewish businesses, it’s also a direct shot at New York City’s economy," writes @AndrewYang
The BDS movement has struggled recently and is hardly a major presence in NY politics.
So what do remarks like these do?
They reinforce a political climate in which any support for Palestinian rights is deemed beyond the pale. It's a strategy of quashing dissent.
