In his last video of 2018, AL explains how Trump seems to enjoy full villainy like telling kids there’s no Santa Claus, starting feuds with war widows, shitting on 4-star generals, and doing his best Bond villain impression. Forget “Presidential,” Trump is no longer displays basic humanity…
AL goes deep into the year that broke the Democratic Party and the last time Democrats had real, unfettered political power. In 1968, the party broke into the establishment (LBJ, Humphrey), Social Justice Warrior establishment (RFK), Bernie progressives (Eugene McCarthy), and Dixiecrats (then George Wallace, today would be Trumpers).
AL pushes back on the myth that both parties are equally powerful, since America has mostly been under GOP control since 1969. Even though conservatives are angrier than they’ve ever been (and believe it’s due to social liberalism), it’s actually because of economic conservatives squeezing them.
AL wonders how Trump has been able to brand himself a tough guy, when he’s really a huge coward, and marvels at how quickly he does Vladimir Putin’s bidding
Truly, I care about all the races tomorrow, and I’d like to see as many Democrats as possible win representative seats, senate seats, Governor’s mansions, state legislature seats, schoolboard spots, dog catcher jobs, etc. Basically, if you’re a Democrat, I hope you win tomorrow, and I certainly hope that enough races go the right way that Democrats… Read More »
In my very first “Ask Me Anything” video, AL explains how Southern liberals are really the Spetsnaz commandos of liberalism, and coastal liberals (who haven’t been through half as much) should use us instead of calling us DINOs. By detailing a brief recent political history of Alabama–Don Siegelman’s incarceration, a non-existent state party, a vicious… Read More »
AL recounts stories of how Bill Clinton (one of only 2 great Presidents in the last 50 years, 6 out of 9 of which were Republicans) got him to be a Democrat when he was a kid–and how Republicans have gotten you to hate Bill Clinton since then despite his leaving office with a budget… Read More »
While defending Bill Maher’s recession comments–Trump’s policies make a recession inevitable, so why not sooner vs. December 2020?–AL explains that since Trump is committing treason (and not in the usual conspiracy theory “Neocons are for New World Order” or “Obama’s a Muslim” way), it’s okay to root against him. He also pushes back hard against… Read More »
AL explains the key difference in Republicans and Democrats (who focus on the individual above all), and why it’s not that surprising Trump has been able to so thoroughly co-opt the Republican Party (including suck-ass Mitt Romney) or push out Bob Corker, Jeff Flake, John McCain, and Mark Sanford. I also explain how we’re living… Read More »
AL goes off about Trump’s horrible deal-making, and notices a clear pattern with Trump ripping up the Iran Deal (which led to high gas prices), going tougher on Canada/Europe (which will likely trigger a recession) than China/Russia, and giving North Korea everything they want but asking for little in return. Towards the end, I also… Read More »
