This week I had the honor of being asked to participate in and speak at Web Summit 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal. The panel also included Bjorn Ihler of the Khalifa-Ihler Institute, and Sasha Havlicek of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, in addition to Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks.
The ugly march of a couple of hundred white nationalists, as shocking as that is, is unlikely to threaten the stability of our constitutionally elected government. The general sympathy of mainstream Democrats for the violent tactics of fascists on the left against Trump just might.
It would be a horrible, awful, no good thing to waste this unbelievable opportunity to move the country to the right by nominating a Republican who is not a conservative, and will not govern as one. Like Trump.
