Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Your comment is a fine example of the twisted "reasoning" I'm addressing here.  

In your view, asking the faction of the left being discussed here to stop attacking your allies becomes asking you to sing hosannas.  

Pointing out that the WWC voting against their interests is due to racism becomes an insult to your intelligence as to the voting patterns of the WWC instead of taking the main point addressing the motivation.  

Asking for people who presumably share our goals for solidarity is twisted into a false choice of do it our way or hope for demographics to save you, pitting yourself AGAINST the votes of the democratic base.

Then, as the cherry on top, in a discussion about how a portion of "the left" helped Republicans win the election by joining them in attacking Democrats, you proceed to attack Democrats then rationalize the behavior.

You're all saying you won't be silenced and assigning blame like it's a holy sacrament, but then admonish me to not blame the Bernie would've won crowd because blame does no good.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
