There would be certain tactical advantages to this. The Left always performs much, much better when a Republican is in office. The anti-establishment populist-right would continue to be rallied. The division between the Republican “base” and Republican establishment would continue to expand as would the divide between the […]
Susan Rice for VP and Samantha Power for Secretary of State? It figures.
Only 10%? At the end of the Cold War, no less than Robert McNamara wanted to reduce the military budget by 50%. “Progressives” are so lame. Kudos to Kyle for calling them out.
There is not nearly enough Antifa to carry out an insurrection like the recent one.
Who cares about this fraud’s opinion? Remember his smoke and mirrors show at the UN before the invasion of Iraq? He was a neocon stooge then and he’s a neocon stooge now.
Kyle comes close to getting it in this. He’s not nearly where I am but he’s moving along.
This statue is located about a block from my residence. There is a row of Confederate monuments that line the avenue where the Lee statue is located, and which have predictably been vandalized and tagged with graffiti in recent days. Kyle generally strikes me as a reasonable leftist. […]
Kyle Kulinski has an interesting rebuttal to Carlson’s Hobbesian-Burkean perspective. In his more serious and intelligent moments, Carlson is simply making the Hobbesian argument that order must be maintained at all costs in order for civilization to exist with considerations of “justice,” whatever their merit, being a secondary […]
So Kyle now favors Hubert Humphrey Biden over Richard Nixon Trump? A Biden victory will result in the neoliberal class and Deep State collectively trying to consolidate their position while a Trump victory will likely result in more fragmentation. Krystal and Saagar respond to Kyle Kulinkski’s pivot […]
This could set a dangerous precedent.
Kyle takes his stand with the 46%. Between the 46% who either don’t vote or vote third-party, the 67% of voters who constitute the “exhausted majority,” the minority of Blue Tribers and Red Tribers who are tired of the bullshit, and former establishmentarians who see through it all […]
Apparently, “democratic centralism” is the one aspect of his time on the “far-left” that Bernie has retained. Along the way, he has apparently sold out to electoralism, and then to liberal-imperialism, and now to neoliberalism itself.
Kyle calls out the media sector of the new clerisy. This is good.
Imagine that. The student loan industry is a nationalized, state-run industry functioning in collusion with the banksters and the educationist wing of the new clerisy. Not being dischargeable through bankruptcy, student loans are modern-day indentured servitude. No way they’re going to give up that win-win scenario for the […]
I don’t really think Justin Amash is all that bad for a Republican (which is an extraordinarily low standard). But he’s still just a Tea Party-type, Koch-flunkie. I’m also not a Libertarian Party member, so I don’t get a say, but I would prefer than the LP not […]
The primary disagreement that I have with orthodox, American-style libertarians is their deification of characters like Bezos, Musk, Gates, Sam Walton, etc as idealized Nietzschean supermen. This is a recurring theme I have seen among Randians (the worst), Catoite neoliberals, and Rockwellian paleos alike. These characters are simply […]
It’s funny how milquetoast social democrats like Bernie and AOC and outright hucksters like Lizzie the Scamster are still considered too much by the bankster-friendly MSM.
The neocons, led by Bill Kristol, are using the Biden campaign to colonize the Democrats, while Trump has an 80% approval rating among the Republicans. If the neocons are successful at this, it means the US will have a neocon party and a faux-populist right-wing plutocratic party. Imagine […]
Kulinski talks about a video from 2013 where Obama admitted he and the Republicans agreed 70% of the time, and that the differences between the two parties were more about procedure than substance. Obama also pointed out something I have also pointed out many times, which is that […]
My respect for Kyle Kulinski has gone way up since he adopted a “boycott the major parties” stance on this election. “Vote blue, no matter” (or “vote red, no matter who”) is the stupidest position possible. It means you are telling your supposed leaders and rulers that you […]
It would be hilarious if third party and/or independent candidates actually did well in this election.
Kyle nails it in this.
The Hong Kong flu epidemic in 1968 actually killed 50,000 Americans as well.
Krystal has really been getting attacked by the SJW crowd lately, which means she is likely on the right track. I reject Tucker Carlson’s populist-nationalism and social conservatism. I reject Krystal’s statist-reformist social democracy. And I reject the libtard-leftard-SJW-Antifa pathological right-wingophobia. Kyle’s commentary is this is pretty good.
Once again, the Democrapic leadership is revealed to be the true “conservative” party in the US. If the Democraps wanted to make it happen, we would already have an emergency UBI and debt cancellation in place right now. It’s not that they can’t do it, they just don’t […]
Thank God I am not a lame-ass “progressive” who thinks the way you do politics is beg cretins like Clinton or Biden for more crumbs. If these “progressives” put as much effort into building an actual revolutionary movement as they do into this electoralist hand-wringing, they might have […]
I generally think Greg Gutfield is a moron who is mostly just about regurgitating the standard FOX News hand-wringing about “socialism,” as if there were an actual socialist movement of any significance in the US (and, no, recycled New Dealer Bernie Sanders and McGoverite liberal AOC are not […]
More “Let them eat cake” attitudes coming from Congress. That tends to not work out well for ruling classes in the long run.
Kyle calls out Chomsky and totally nails it in this.
Chomsky has a far more favorable assessment of Sanders than I do but I’m also more radical than Chomsky. The main thing Sanders has achieved is demonstrating that electoralism/reformism fails, which I guess counts for something.
The bankstas is gangstas. Actually, that’s an insult to gangsters.
I have to respect Kulinski’s ability to avoid pathological right-wingophobia and the “vote blue, no matter who” nonsense. But, regrettably, most liberals, progressives, leftists, social democrats, socialists, and even many anarchists (shame) will fail to follow his example.
Kulinski correctly points out that Sanders’ is as popular as he is not because of his supposed “hard left” fans, but because of his appeal to independents, swing voters even disaffected Trumpians. Populism and radical centrism are to the left of neoliberalism. Predictably, I’ve heard some from the […]
This isn’t bad. Kyle calls out “progressive” sellouts and SJWs at the same time.
A combination of ruling class sabotage and the inherent weaknesses of a “left” that is more worried about Orange Man and the Deplorables rather than actually attacking the ruling class.
Kulinksi nails it.
LOL. Right on target.
How convenient for the power elite that everyone is under a shelter-in-place order. It’s been great to see some leftist commentators like Kyle, Jimmie Dore, and Krystal Ball (finally) call out the failures of “left-wing” politicians. This is a good commentary. Kyle strikes me as one of the […]
Kulinski comes through on the ruling class looting spree as well. Fortunately, I’ve never been anything but an anarchist, so I never had to go through the process of being “disillusioned” with politicians. I’ve always merely expected the worst and have never been disappointed.
This video is over a year old, but it’s a good description of the neoliberal vs. populist division that is growing on the US right, just like there is a growing division between neoliberals and social democrats on the US left. The consequences of the Reagan-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama neoliberal paradigm […]
I generally agree with Kyle’s criticisms of the Republicans and neoliberal Democrats, but this Berniebro ode to statism is a bit difficult to watch. No, Kyle, we don’t need more central planning in response to coronavirus. Actually, the trend has been that decentralized decision-making processes have been more […]
It’s 2008 on steroids.
Now is a golden opportunity for anarchists. Ask your fellow citizens: Of what use are these assholes?
