Today’s Thought:

Hillary’s attempts to excoriate Bernie on guns will backfire in the South.

While most progressives favor strong gun safety legislation, as does Bernie, Hillary is painting Sanders as a conservative on guns, hoping to win progressive votes that might otherwise go to Bernie.

The unintended consequences of her attacks may well be to drive conservative Democrats to Bernie Sanders.



Author’s Notes:

This article was published here a couple of days ago under the title We Must Step Outside Our Species. Because of a WordPress glitch it was not able to be shared properly.

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

• Be sure to visit Armory of the Revolution’s new commissary and bookstore: The Supply Depot

You will find recommended reading on Animal Rights, revolutionary theory, politics, economics, religion, science, and atheism. There is also a section of supplies for animal liberationists, hunt saboteurs, and social revolutionaries. This is all brand new, and we will be adding lots more merchandise in the near future!

Feel free to comment. I encourage open discussion and welcome other opinions. I moderate comments because this blog has been attacked by hunters and right wing trolls. I approve comments that are critical as well as those which agree with me. Comments that I will not tolerate are those that are spam, threatening, disrespectful, or which promote animal abuse and cruelty.

    • The system of superdelegates being able to override the people was intentional. Such a rigged system merely punctuates what Sanders voters see as the country being rigged. As a practical matter, those superdelegates are political creatures, anxious to protect their turfs and to be re-elected in their own rights. Defying their own voters is likely to risk their jobs. In 2007, superdelegates overwhelmingly leaned toward Hillary, but abandoned her as Obama piled up election victories. Unlike regular delegates, who are committed to the candidate they represent, superdelegates can change their minds.

      But you are quite correct. If superdelegates thwart the votes of rank and file Democrats and cause Bernie to lose the nomination, the political fallout will be seismic. While Clinton may be willing to chance such a scenario, most superdelegates are far too pragmatic to allow that to happen. If it did, Sanders voters would abandon the party and many, if not most, of those superdelegates would lose their seats to Republicans in Novemeber.
