Not surprised, Democrats have changed completely just in my lifetime, almost doing a 180 in many respects. The party that was once completely anti-racism, anti-war, pro working class, pro free speech, free love, etc. has mutated into this fear mongering, xenophobic (Russia), identity politic obsessed, divisive, pro-censorship, puritanical, and hateful group of people just in the last 15 or so years. I know I'm generalizing but those are the people that dominate the political conversation within the party at least.

Kucinich is about the last one I somewhat respect.

How is not liking Russia xenophobic? If Russians want to start moving to the us no one on the left cares but it's not xenophobic to think they're a shitty borderline fascist country where gay people are forced to live in hiding and journalist have a tendency to disappear. The fact that their boots are all over Twitter is just 1 of many reasons to not like the government, policies or political leaders of Russia
