    He actually did fire his police chief for reporting racism within his department though and still won’t release the tapes.

    DePaepe alleged in legal documents that, over the span of several months, white officers discussed at length a plan to persuade Buttigieg to fire Boykins, using two Buttigieg donors as go-betweens. “It is going to be a fun time when all white people are in charge,” one officer is quoted saying. Both donors denied the charge to TYT, and the officers, said DePaepe, believed that Buttigieg was unaware of their scheme.

    DePaepe alleged that some of the officers involved were recorded discussing Boykins in racist terms:

    I love how these presumptive arguments against taxing the rich fairly are that it's so much more than they are taxed today.

    No sh-t. The entire point is that the status quo is inequitable. Of course that means the tax increase will be disproportional. The worse it is now the bigger the adjustment back to fairness. The more you scream you are being hurt by this the more you should be hurt, because the advantage you enjoy now is the problem.

    I guess my biggest gripe with the "Bernie or Bust" crowd is the idea that progressive policy proposals don't deserve to be looked at with a critical lens because they automatically "just work", and therefore any criticism is automatically a right-wing smear campaign against them, and Bernie/his supporters are victims of the corporate media.

    It's really no better than Trumpsters who complain about "fake news" when THE GREAT WALL is (correctly) debunked as a waste of time and money.

    Whoosh. I just reamed people out for their Bernie Bro hurr hurr nonsense. And then you waltz in and act just like what they're making fun of.

    All of you: talk up the merits of your candidate. But before you open your mouth about another Dem think about the day after they accept the nomination and now you're supporting them against Dump. Now they belong to you. If you trash them now you have two choices then: (1) be a hypocrite, (2) keep on railing against them and don't support them and we get Dump again, boy you sure showed us.

    Are any of you getting it yet? Any of you: liberals?, centrists?, running dog warmonger Plute apologists?, moonbats?, Marsgriffins?

    We're fighting Nazis. Actual Nazis. Nazis who have nuclear weapons. We all need to take our needy little egos and shove them up our as-s for the next year and

    burn these motherf-ckers to the ground!

    Not a single word of this supports the claim he fired Boykins for reporting racism. Even DePaepe - who was fired by Buttigieg - stated she believed that Buttigieg was unaware of their scheme as per your own link.

    It'd be one thing if trix just supported Bernie in a sane manner, and didn't spout obvious talking points from the circle-jerk of "woke" Bernie Twitter.

    I'm pretty sure "running dog warmonger Plute apologist" is you. Handy claims we call him that but I don't get that vibe from him. He's more a "cut rate flyover Less Nessman Chamber of Commerce entitled pseudo-Dem."

    I'd like to point out there is a difference between ****ting on Trix, who appears to be insane, and ****ting on a candidate.
