There is a huge disconnect between the Democratic voters and the billionaire donors that the Democrats actually work for -- having sold their souls on the cheap, if you run the numbers.

Mermaids is a charity in the UK providing resources for transgender children and their parents. After a comedy writer campaigned to rob them of half a million pounds in funding, Youtuber Harris Bomberguy stepped in, raising over $340,000, playing Donkey Kong 64 live on the internet for 57.5 hours, with special guests including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, literally all the best left-leaning Youtubers, and many trans voices.

The FBI opened a "domestic terrorism" investigation into California civil rights activists, accusing them of "conspiracy" to violate the rights of the Ku Klux Klan.

The FBI viewed the KKK as victims and leftist protesters as potential terror threats. This is how the bureau defined the Klan: “The KKK consisted of members that some perceived to be supportive of a white supremacist agenda.”

The FBI spied on activists' social media and in-person activities.

Philosophy Tube's take on the evils of Steve Bannon ends with a version of "Why Do We Build the Wall", by Anais Mitchell, from Hadestown (2010) - which really is the perfect protest song for this Trumpian moment.
