Secret ceremony? If leader is a man over the age 18, wouldn't he know exactly what happens at these ceremonies? If leader is a woman, then someone else in her cabinet would. These ceremonies are optional- oh, never mind, carry on Ya, the issue is based on Ulwaluko , which is a secretive circumcisio...

The Kavanaugh accusations were rocky as well, I think anyone that the movement would have lost due to that sort of absolutism are already gone. I think that the real danger to the movement is loosing support from politicians who would rather see Biden win over backing the movement. Compare Ford's t...

I'm not sure Biden will pick Harris, especially after she called him out for opposing busing in the debates. I think his campaign will know she will be asked about that if he picks her, and they know that the Republicans can go after her quite a bit for going from attacking him for working with seg...

Fair enough. Honestly, I do think on point 1 we could have been a lot clearer and just have said that all allegations of rape and sexual assault should be taken seriously and be investigated, that would have saved him a lot of trouble. He could be a lot clearer now, though I'm sure he would be crit...

Allowing white people to exist

I mean I think that's a policy shift we can all get behind. I'm sure Joe will apologise for his stance on that any day now.

I actually think this is a great first step at reaching out to the left, and I hope he makes a few more moves like this, including picking a running mate who is either on the left of the party, or who is at least seen as friendly to the left (Tammy Baldwin, Elizabeth Warren and Nina Turner all spri...

I don't know if Biden is a sexual predator or not but if he is it's just icing on the shit cake. And it doesn't really matter because he's going to lose. It's waaaay too early to call the election now, either for Trump or for Biden. Right now most of the polls suggest that if the election was today...

On certain policies, like guns, immigration and tax structure, I hear you. I'd see some of those as more culturally liberal (particularly in a US sense) than economically left, but fair enough. I'm open to describing it as cultural liberalism, but either way, my point is that despite the reputation...

In 2020 I get Gabbard outflanking him on the left on some issues, but I'm also not sure who you mean in that primary either? $20 he's either going to talk immigration or guns.

If Biden is literally just an empty vessel for the party line, you'd better hope the party line doesn't suddenly change if the Dems get back into power.
