T @truthrose1
@joanwalsh PBO is not your lap dog, thank god Gibbs called out the liars in the progressive media, u have done nothing but act like baggers
Joan Walsh @joanwalsh
@truthrose1 Not saying white progressives are THE base; opposite. But I resent African Americans who say THEY are THE BASE. Wrong.
T @truthrose1
@joanwalsh white progressive voices use the term "the base" carelessly that is my point
T @truthrose1
@joanwalsh AA's are not the entire base, however, white progressive voices ignore us and act as if we don't exist
Joan Walsh @joanwalsh
@truthrose1 No, I don't. That's insanely unfair. Talk to a person, not your stereotypes. Please. Tiresome, really.
T @truthrose1
@joanwalsh history will show how the so called "progressive" wing of the Dem party was a toxic and deceitful bunch of back stabbers.
Joan Walsh @joanwalsh

Looks like Walsh has been reflexively defensive going all the way back to Ishmael Reed's article. He wanted white progs to understand that shared experience means black progressives understand and accept Obama's style better than they do. Asked white pro
Laura @Beulahmo 08/04/2011 12:35:55 WIB
progressives to consider that black and brown Americans have HAD to be patient about progress. I saw NOTHING resembling Walsh's assertion of Reed's "pernicious line" she deeply resents (more...)
Laura @Beulahmo 08/04/2011 12:39:15 WIB
that Obama's base is "actually not white progressives but people of color," though it's disturbing that she UNDERSTOOD it that way. His point is that black and brown progressives relate to Obama's (more...)
Laura @Beulahmo 08/04/2011 12:42:22 WIB
...calm pragmatism, and understand why he cannot put up more of an impassioned "fight" from his "bully pulpit". In short, Reed calls on Walsh to employ empathy to Obama, our progressive *black* president. (more...)
Laura @Beulahmo 08/04/2011 12:44:45 WIB
I am a white progressive and I don't think the request is unreasonable. I am not offended by Reed's column, but Walsh apparently is deeply resentful. She is hearing from Reed and from Truthrose1 (the tweet that started this) (more...)
Laura @Beulahmo 08/04/2011 12:48:46 WIB
...something that wasn't said. She HEARD that the base is "not white progressives but people of color..." What's being said, though, is "Don't ignore us and don't speak for us. We're part of the 'base' too, and our opinion is different..." (more...)
Laura @Beulahmo 08/04/2011 12:52:04 WIB
Like it or not, Walsh has a powerful platform and a big megaphone, so she speaks for the base on the national stage. If she's ignoring a huge section of that base, and resents being called out on it, that's a problem. (more...)
Laura @Beulahmo 08/04/2011 12:53:37 WIB
This problem for Joan Walsh won't go away until she acknowledges what she has "mis-heard" (sorry for that malapropism) and misunderstood.

Just read this. Totally on point, Beulahmo. Thanks.
