What “Liberals” say and what I hear.

What “liberal” Democrats say: We have to be pragmatic and run centrist candidates and have to push actual progressive candidates out because we don’t think they can win despite the fact that once surveyed with language that is not leading most Americans support a progressive agenda, but if our guys don’t win then worse guys will and you don’t want that.

What I hear: I am so steeped in my class, race, and gender privilege that I am willing to throw you all under the bus in the name of protecting it and then turn around and smile and call myself an “ally.”
