As horrible as it is to hear him speak it’s somehow far worse to read it in print.

:/
i have deep respect for killer mike, and i can understand why he might feel this way. but you have politics as usual versus an actual white nationalist. i can’t agree with this, and discouraging others from voting only gives more power to the white nationalists who WILL be voting.

Quick preview from that article. Earlier this year, Cohen learned that Marianne Ihlen, his former girlfriend and the inspiration for “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye,” “Bird on a Wire,” and “So Long Marianne” was dying. He sent her an email saying:
“Well Marianne, it’s come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. And you know that I’ve always loved you for your beauty and your wisdom, but I don’t need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.”
Two days later, Cohen got an email saying
“Dear Leonard, Marianne slept slowly out of this life yesterday evening. Totally at ease, surrounded by close friends.
Your letter came when she still could talk and laugh in full consciousness. When we read it aloud, she smiled as only Marianne can. She lifted her hand, when you said you were right behind, close enough to reach her.
It gave her deep peace of mind that you knew her condition. And your blessing for the journey gave her extra strength. . . . In her last hour I held her hand and hummed “Bird on the Wire,” while she was breathing so lightly. And when we left the room, after her soul had flown out of the window for new adventures, we kissed her head and whispered your everlasting words.
So long, Marianne . . . ”

Speaking from the UK here. The parallels between Trump and Brexit are truly astonishing. I know they’ve been covered extensively already, but man, I really wish the DNC had looked to Brexit to understand what NOT to do. Having Beyonce, Jay-Z, Madonna and Springsteen on stage with you is playing into the narrative of the disenfranchised. They see you as the elite. They see you as the political machine. Parading around with stars just makes that divide seem even bigger. I really hope the left start to realise that elite liberalism can no longer defeat right populism, especially when the working class have found themselves in online echo chambers that are getting louder and louder. It’s time to start finding ways to re-engage with the people that feel forgotten. Moby – I feel his pain, but this sort of leftist elitist tone is part of the problem.

Shut up. You urged people to not vote. Your opinion on the election is null.

The idea of “throw(ing) away your vote” misunderstands math. Your vote won’t affect the election anyway, it is symbolic. To reject the two parties with a third party is as valid as any other vote.

But now that Animal Collective have told me what to do, I’m sure I’ll change my mind.

The issue is that the creative aspects of the album’s creation (composition and performance) are attributed to her while the technical aspects are attributed to her male collaborators while completely leaving out the fact that she co-produced the album. People writing about this album at the time did the same thing and it was equally grating then. I’m not attributing ill-intent to you and I can tell you really appreciate her as an artist but consciously or not there is inherent sexism in some of what you wrote.

You have 3 choices (Trump, Jill Stein, Gary Johnson) and they’re all better than Hillary Clinton. Good luck, America.

Just more entitlement-fueled “I’m a victim” bullshit from the talking heads that further more and more attempts to divide via Racism, Class Division, and outright Leftist dogma. The American People have spoken and they/we are sick of this POS idiots like Killer Mike and these imbecilic jackasses’ mindless drivel.
