You have to give it to the Progressive-Fundamentalists. What is in truth their failure and weakness - they front as their STRENGTH.
"I think the problem is that the poor children, keep in mind it's 42% of poor children who live at or near poverty, it's 25% in poverty. Our audience needs to keep that in mind." Cornel West said on MSNBC this afternoon.
"Poor children need more than just a $1,000 for their family, they need a war against poverty to make it a major priority in the way which we have a priority for Afghanistan, and a priority to bail out banks, and a priority to defend corporate interests when it comes to environmental issues," West said about more and new entitlements for the poor.
THEY NOW CONTROL THE LOCAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FUNCTIONS WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES

Cornel West is a master of group behavior.
He understands that he never has to shift from the "Lumpen Proletariat" of "Perpetual Strugglers" over to the ESTABLISHMENT POWER - accepting that as the Progressive-Fundamentalists gain more POWER they also must be held accountable for delivering the promised benefit in the areas where they dominate.

KEEP YOUR ENEMY ON TRIAL SO THAT YOU NEVER HAVE TO INDICT YOUR FRIENDS FOR THEIR FAILURE TO DELIVER
WHO IS DEMANDING THAT THE PEOPLE WHO YOU HAVE INVESTED IN, SHOW YOU THE EVIDENCE OF ANY "ORGANIC COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT" THAT HAS BEEN PRODUCED AS THEY GREW THEIR POWER?
