Show Pod Save America, Ep “Herd mentality.” - Sep 17, 2020
Briahna Joy GrayAnat Shenker-Osorio gives excellent advice here. She points out that “law and order” is a trap set by Trump that serves to keep the base at home. (Also, leaning into right wing framing is immoral).
They’re not trying to save the GOP from a demagogue. They’re infiltrating the Democratic Party.
Briahna Joy Gray“Despite the commitment they professed to the Republican Party, they would have been quite happy, as many now admit to Saldin and Teles, to see Hillary Clinton win. It did not strike them as a significant setback for conservatism.”

Briahna Joy GrayI made the “controversial” argument that we should stand for something—
that our support should be conditioned on the bare minimum assurance from the future president that he will fight for our basic human rights—
that our votes should be earned.
The chant: "Joe Biden doesn’t have a housing plan for me!"
Briahna Joy GrayHow big does the polling spread between Biden and Trump have to get before Americans are allowed to ask *anything* of him without being called Trump supporters?
Asking for some people facing eviction.
Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden demand action.
Briahna Joy Gray“Believing women, that oft-rehearsed exhortation, must mean taking action if it’s to mean anything. A thorough and fully transparent investigation is critical, but nothing produced by any inquiry will entirely settle the question.”
Kavanaugh’s choice to lie about things that are easily disproved speaks to a kind of hubris, or entitlement, that’s fitting to someone of his pedigree.
Briahna Joy GrayI’m old enough to remember when Republicans lied about there not being corroboration for Dr. Ford’s claims.
Reade has more contemporaneous or near-contemporaneous corroboration. But even good pundits, like @chrislhayes, haven’t made that clear.
That doesn’t mean his campaign will abandon its most effective strategy.
Briahna Joy Gray“Soon after Biden called for the search, a National Archives spokesperson told Business Insider that they do not hold the records to which he referred, which, if true, means the vice-president directed the inquiry toward an easily verifiable dead end.”
On May 1st, frontline workers at some of the biggest corporations in the country will lead a mass strike action, asking customers to boycott Amazon, Instacart, Whole Foods, and Target.
Briahna Joy Gray“It’s more powerful when we come together...We formed an alliance between a bunch of different companies because we all have one common goal which is to save the lives of workers and communities.”
Briahna Joy GrayPlease take a few minutes to listen to the incomparable Senator @ninaturner on @breakfastclubam this morning.
Her leadership and integrity have been unmatched, and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say she was the heart and soul of this campaign.
Biden bros are attacking Bernie Sanders’ national press secretary on social media by posting altered images depicting her as an “essential worker” in the wake of the Sanders suspending his campaign…
Briahna Joy GrayWhat do you know. It took the New York post to finally cover the abuse that Bernie supporters routinely face.
Didn’t someone once say that principles are directly responsible for the behavior of their supporters?
