A Good Formula for Losing the 2018 Election 16.8.2018 American Prospect
(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) Activists protest the Trump administration's immigration policies in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill on June 28, 2018. There’s a current of opinion on the left of the Democratic Party that the party just needs to excite and turn out its progressive base and should forget about appealing to Republicans and independents. The demand to “abolish ICE” (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) reflects that premise and epitomizes what’s wrong with it. The brutal inhumanity of Trump’s child-separation policies, turning away of refugees, and deportations of immigrants who have long been well-regarded members of their community should put Republicans this fall wholly on the defensive on immigration. Republican candidates ought to have a lot of awkward explaining to do, and Democrats ought to have opportunities to win back support. Not all conservatives and independents are hopelessly anti-immigrant; many Republicans have supported bipartisan immigration reform, and many ...

Thousands of D.C. Residents Overshadow White Nationalists 13.8.2018 American Prospect
(Kristen Doerer) “This is ‘Chocolate City,’” said 36-year-old D.C. resident Ahmed Ali, as he stood among hundreds of demonstrators gathered to protest the white supremacists who arrived on Sunday afternoon. “You can’t come to D.C. with that.” One year after his rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, white nationalist leader Jason Kessler planned a second Unite the Right rally in Washington, D.C.’s Lafayette Square, with the White House as backdrop, having been unable to get a permit to march in Charlottesville. Local protesters were determined that what happened the year before in Virginia—when a white supremacist drove a car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer—was not going to happen in Washington, D.C. “I was born and raised here. There’s no place for this here or anywhere else in the world,” said 39-year-old Pliney Britford, who came to protest for his two daughters. “I don’t want my kids living in fear.” President Donald Trump was notably absent, choosing to vacation at ...
