Kimberle Crenshaw: On Intersectional Activism

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Kimberly Crenshaw

 

As I’m Interviewing Kimberle Crenshaw in this piece…I’m actually unaware that Crenshaw is the creator of the term intersectional activism. In our Lyme work, the number one problem we’ve seen Lyme Activism encounter…is clash of egos…and activists…disliking each other within the movement. What’s amazing, is right about now….the Lyme community is waking up to that fact and doing something about it. Crenshaw realized 30 years ago…that progressive movements clashing with each other may not be the best thing for progressivism…clashing progressive values played a huge role in this last election. People continuously want answers as to what happened (in this last election). The answer is that a lot of things happened. Not showing up in Wisconsin and Michigan…not really having political “Killers’ run  HRC’s campaign, a non strong enough defense of the Clinton Foundation–which is an extraordinary organization (Comparing it to Trumps foundation: best…to the worst) somehow that message was not brought out strongly enough…Caine…may not have been strong enough choice. the third and 4th party candidacies (way to go Jill Stein…Gary Johnson: clearly an idiot…but you?)

James Carville would (and did) identify one element above all: progressives tearing down Hillary Clinton. Intersectional Activism is about as important of a concept to apply in taking action out there. Know what you’re fighting against: because its certainly in our faces now. I cannot tell you how much  Ha Goodman and Julian Assange…helped make this bed. The good news: California passed Universal Health Care today….the pushback will be strong…and that is in someway a hopeful message for today. The bad news: Bloomberg recently said that he felt there was 55 percent chance of Trump being re-elected….he sited a non-clear democratic message, and most importantly, infighting amongst progressives.–Milon Henry Levine

“The Activists” A Talk with Medea Benjamin at the RNC on Code Pink and HRC

Monday, February 13th, 2017

the-activists

As we prepare to launch into our extensive coverage of some behind the scenes meetings involving the organizers of the Women’s March on Washington…a talk with one of the most present feminist activists over the past ten years, Medea Benjamin, a co founder of Code Pink…and not a supporter of Hillary Clinton…not so sure she’s particularly comfortable with the outcome of this election, and we wonder if she would support HRC a bit more….in 2020. We imagine Hillary’s been awed by her general election tally, and the size of the Women Marches around the globe, compared with Trump’s Inauguration crowd, and television audience, which was the 9th ranked Presidential Inauguration in terms of household ratings…coming in behind Richard Nixon…and way behind Obama and Bill Clinton.

“The Activists” Cynthia Johnson Fights to Get Her Mother’s Home Back

Last week on “The Activists” Amin Husain talked about where the Occupy Wall Street Movement is today…to augment what he said….it’s EVERYWHERE today. Its all over the campaign of Bernie Sanders…perhaps in a tiny bit of a less genuine way it’s all over Hillary Clinton‘s campaign….and Trump Rubio and Cruz are, uh, thinking about it (arguably this is not true). This is from an Occupy protest in front of Morgan Stanley in the fall…Susie Johnson (Her daughter Cynthia Johnson is pictured below) is an 80 year old woman who lost her home 14 years ago because of a mistake, according to Morgan Stanley, made by Morgan Stanley…4 misplaced paymnts that she made. We have approached ‪#‎Ronkuby‬ about this and so far have heard nothing. Pretty sure William Moses  Kunstler would sue the crap out of Morgan Stanley on Johnson’s behalf, but I know nothing about this field…perhaps the best person around the ask….is next up on “The Activists.” The long time president of the William Moses Kunstler foundation and one of the greatest theatrical Activists in modern history, Randy Credico.  You don’t have to be #Ronkuby to call Jamie Dimon at 212-270 1111 to talk about it, but it wouldn’t hurt.
