It's all performance art until progressives actually vote in ways that match how they talk in public.
"Not among the No votes: NY Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voted present; while Mark Pocan (D-WI), Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), all of whom have been critical of Israel, voted Yes." mondoweiss.net/2021/09/house…

I will not support a standalone supplemental bill of $1 billion to replenish the bombs Israel used to commit war crimes in Gaza.
After all of yesterday's noise about how "Iron Dome is purely defensive!" today's supplemental contains an endorsement of the Israeli bombing campaign. appropriations.house.gov/new…

From November 2020, when Mayorkas was first picked by Biden to be DHS secretary
Replying to @kgosztola

The war on terror…it’s bad! Great to talk with @ChipGibbons89 @marjoriecohn @kgosztola & Dr. Sami Al-Arian about domestic costs of 20 years of growing the security state. Solid closing q—how do we think about reversing these trends without romanticizing the time before 9/11?
