If you start from the idea ...Filner Supporter Edition

I was scan­ning Robert Stacy McCain Live at 5 list when a story jumped out at me.

San Diego Mayor Fil­ner In Medi­a­tion With City Amid Recall Efforts

Well not so much the story as the sen­tence below the headline.

San Diego Mayor Fil­ner In Medi­a­tion With City Amid Recall Efforts

Fil­ner sup­port­ers hold rally yesterday

Sup­port­ers? Fil­ner has sup­port­ers?

Here is the story:

His sup­port­ers, which include some labor unions and Lati­nos, claim Fil­ner is being denied due process, and the recall effort is orches­trated by those who oppose his polit­i­cal agenda.

the key quote:

I under­stand what’s going on in San Diego. i mean, Bob Fil­ner is a demo­c­rat. he’s mayor of San Diego. that doesn’t hap­pen. it hasn’t hap­pened in a long time. i’m sure the democ­rats out there are dis­traught at the thought that the mayor may have to go away

And that’s what it all comes down to.

National party fig­ures who have no say on if Fil­ner stays or goes can denounce him all they want. The media can tease him and make him the butt of jokes, but as long as they have no power to remove him it doesn’t matter.

As long as Fil­ner is on the right side of the issues and to some degree use­ful to the left in San Diego the hard-​core foot sol­diers of the left in San Diego the Unions, the Latino’s and the activists are going to back him because to them the ends always jus­tify the means.

That might seem odd to you and me but if you start from the idea they are all Marx­ists it makes per­fect sense.

the key quote:

I understand what’s going on in San Diego. i mean, Bob Filner is a democrat. he’s mayor of San Diego. that doesn’t happen. it hasn’t happened in a long time. i’m sure the democrats out there are distraught at the thought that the mayor may have to go away

And that’s what it all comes down to.

National party figures who have no say on if Filner stays or goes can denounce him all they want. The media can tease him and make him the butt of jokes, but as long as they have no power to remove him it doesn’t matter.

As long as Filner is on the right side of the issues and to some degree useful to the left in San Diego the hard-core foot soldiers of the left in San Diego the Unions, the Latino’s and the activists are going to back him because to them the ends always justify the means.
