    and make the compelling case for religious freedom within a secular state that respects the rights of all citizens and the humanity of all peoples.

    This is a no brainer.

    Dems might then make the compelling, humanizing case against bigotry and racism as cheap political tools.

    Again a no brainer.

    The problem here is that this would run against years and years and years of Big-Boy Pants(tm) Democratic enabling, support, normalization and apologetics for the fascist project.  

    Sadly, these Dems seem to be "in for a dime, in for a dollar" and if things hold they will ride their foolish consistency straight into the ditch, just like the subservient stooge side-kicks they are in the overall picture.

    Please don't insult my intelligence by calling this  politics, much less winning politics.  It isn't either.

    Please don't feed the security state.

    •  It never ceases to amaze (0+ / 0-)

      how ostensibly thoughtful, smart libruls can go so belly up, so opaque, on the, um, fascism thing, yet expect to win on any aspect of a progressive, humanist agenda, home or abroad.

      That's just not how it works folks, and this is by design.  You simply cannot pick and choose.

      Please don't feed the security state.
