Big Wins Confirm Mandate for Progressives in California

Progressives Sweep California Democratic Party Delegate Elections
As posted by the Yolo Country Progressives:

Progressives prevailed throughout California in Sunday’s election and they now hold the majority of ADD positions in the California Democratic Party, prompting Jane O'Meara Sanders (Bernie Sanders wife) to tweet “Progressives swept CA Dem Party delegate elections this week. Huge turnouts up/down state led to impressive win! Thank you California!”

Whether its Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, progressives need to get ready for a massive push back from big money. Not just Republicans but Wall Street and "centrist" Democrats will go all out to subvert the expanding progressive movement with fake calls for "unity" and "inclusion". Progressive will need to be more than "reasonable" and polite.

Democrats need to start acting like Republicans. Not that we should lie and cheat, but Progressives need to call out "Republicans" (the theft of the name of a once proud political tradition) as waging a class war by the wealthy against working people, as having shown that their only political philosophy is that of plunder by the strong and privileged. We need to give them the class ware they like to accuse us of. We will be the national defense.

We have seen the results brought by a decent but accommodating Democratic president. As in the title of David Faris's fine book,

"It's Time to Fight Dirty."
