Politics of Betrayal Failed

by recent electoral results, are walking around dazed, heads hanging,
hearts heavy. There should be little surprise at the results, for
they follow, as night follows the day, from the partys recent
strategies to become a kind of Republican-light party. Theyve
become so similar, that millions must have wondered, why vote for
em? Whats the diff? Given its corporate heavy
funding and its deep core of betrayal of various constituencies,
every policy adopted by the Democrats has been designed to show
how much they are like the other guys. They are just
barely, the loyal opposition. But they arent loyal to those
who most consistently vote for them. But they are loyal to the corporations.
Thats where the money comes from and thats where their
loyalties lie. The Clinton strategy of Black faces in high places,
leaves the poor and working class out of the loop, and still like
aliens in the land of their birth. In the waning days of the campaign,
some prominent Democrats found their way to Carl McCalls gubernatorial
campaign headquarters after assiduously ignoring him for months.
The same old tired program of kissing Black babies, while jailing
juveniles, of singing in Black churches while sending congregations
to the hell of prison, or the equally bitter hell of poverty. Aint
gonna cut it. The brave outspoken Cynthia McKinney, a Democrat from
Georgia, was sold out by the bigwigs of the Democratic Party. A
strong Black opinionated woman was apparently too much for them
to support. These bigwigs, wealthy, rightward leaning corporate
Democrats, have tried to out-republican the Republicans, and in
the process, they have consistently abandoned their core constituencies.
As a logical response, their core constituencies are abandoning
them. The politics of betrayal dont seem to be working anymore.
