To get a grasp of how deep this problem goes watch to the end of the video.

I can't absolve Bernie of this either; he's neck deep in the  problem, contributing to it while he complains about it...but I digress.

Then at the end of the discussion it's back to...strategy, how to win elections. How to maneuver so that their political tribe come out on top. Good thing they have makeup that doesn't run from crocodile tears.


Well, there's the rub. Even someone wanting to work in other's best interest has to win and that either means compromise or marketing yourself as the renegade that is going to keep the rest of them in check. In any case, it is a broad-brush leap to "No one in power cares how that policy affects the people paying for it and living under it." Ultimately all politicians get their positions from a world view of the "right" thing even if they ultimately ignore it to keep and monetise their power.

Hell maybe Biden will be able to further Trump's second term agenda better than Trump.  I reckon it just takes a double speaker to get things done in today's world:

Not watching a 45 minute video so I'll Dunning-Kreuger this and assume I know what she's saying. 

I think all people are racist on some level. It doesn't mean I deliberately shape my behavior. Deliberately. That I actively check my behavior from time to time is racist and implies racism is a concern. But my brain slots people into categories without my say-so: Names I can't pronounce (ethnicity) or are more than 4 syllables (nationality) or are Cody (hillbilly/hipster or hillbilly-hipster) or seem "made up" (religion) ... If she's saying everyone's brain works like this to some degree, I agree.
 
That is child play compared to what this woman says.{#Lol}Also what you are saying is a universal human trait and trust me she is not into that.{#Eek}

we all have made them and it will probably happen again

i would have encouraged him to apologize to directly to pence and biden asap

and then apologize to his employer and readers/followers

cancelling someone over silly speech or orwellian wrong think is wrong and maybe even dangerous

jerry taylor should reevaluate this decision

Jerry Taylor should go read his own tweets, take a deep breath, and re-evaluate his purpose at Niskanen. He is driving that organization in ideological circles just when the world needs its perspective most.
