In the big realm of Beltway hacks, Benjy Sarlin is far from the worse. He’s generally a fine reporter, in my experience. But I wanted to note how Murc’s Law that only Democrats have agency in politics works. In the last few days, left-wing politicians have begun taking up the #AbolishICE theme, including Cynthia Nixon. This is great, because ICE is a fascist agency dedicated to ethnic cleansing and should be abolished. But notice how this starts up the concern about unreasonable Democrats for Sarlin.

The beginning of a true split into opposing camps? Huh? I think we are well beyond that point! And what is the bipartisan immigration compromise that the Republican Party–a party now filled with white nationalist fascists following Donald Trump lock, stock, and barrel–going to look like? How is this Democrats’ fault that Republicans have embraced ethnic cleansing? The real story is not that unreasonable Democrats are now calling for the end of a fascist agency. The real story is that the racist Bob Goodlatte immigration bill came within 20 votes for passing yesterday. That means 80% of the Republican caucus was totally cool with supporting a bill that is pure evil.

Bipartisan compromises end when you have intense partisanship that is based on very different beliefs. More perhaps than any point in American history, there are two vastly massively divergent views on what this nation should look like. This has its downsides, lord knows, but one of them is not that pundits are upset that their cherished bipartisan solutions are impossible to find. This nation is in a fight to the death over whether people of color will be treated with human rights. I don’t want a bipartisan solution to this, not that one was ever going to happen anyway. I want to crush conservatives’ belief that they can ethnically cleanse the nation. Abolish ICE is a good beginning.
