Not liberal enough Fri, Jan 22, 2021
There's a faction of the left that's unhappy with Biden being president.  He's not liberal enough.  He didn't abolish capitalism yet.  He's a failure. 

I'm liberal, but this mindset is stupid as shit.  I get that Biden isn't your favorite guy, but he is unmistakably, measurably more in line with your goals than the last guy.  If you can't see that, you have an issue. 

And the whole idea is just the "both sides" argument, either in the form of "there are good and bad people on both sides" -- i.e. the way Trump defended white supremacists -- or in the form of "both sides are equally bad" which is not only inherently untrue, it's unhelpful.  Like seriously, I get that the game sucks, but it's pointless to sit on the sidelines and take pot shots at the only two teams on the field.  Pick a side; work from there. #politics
