Greenwald sounds like a useful idiot. He is spouting the same garbage, future GOP, talking points that Kelly Anne Conway was on Real Time last week.

"American's don't care about January 6th. They care about gas prices and food prices". - As Mahr pointed out, prices fluctuate, democracy is forever. American's DO care about what happened on January 6th.

"There were 1,000 people that showed up and became a riot and the only people that died were Trump supporters". In addition to being factually incorrect on both the count and who died and eliding over the subsequent suicides and total injuries of the capitol police, is it not important that one man conspired with white supremacy groups in an attempt to overthrow the government?

Really? This is not important? Really? Democrats, including the hyper liberal LIZ EFFING CHANEY, are just creating political theater because their platform is empty? Maybe, history has a tendency to repeat itself. Maybe history says that killing fascism in the cradle is the most important thing that any society can do.

I don't disagree that the Democrat establishment is a rudderless ship but displaying to the public just how close we were to losing our democracy on January 6th is historically one of the most important things they can do.

What's the alternative? Focus on things they can neither control nor garner any "bi-partisan" support (it's hard to work across the aisle with fascists) to control- like gas or food prices? We were a Mike Pence away from the end of the American democratic experiment, but by all means, let's just let bygones be bygones.

What a clown

Hmm. Despite being a GG subscriber I only got part of the interview. Be good to share things out equitably. I can’t afford several $5 subscriptions and if Glenn guest-posts on other fora I feel like I’m missing out.

So many good stories start with, "When I was in Poona..".

Though these days I believe the Indians spell it Pune.
