@ the America's Future Now Conference the other day.


JONES:The opportunity is to recognize that a governing movement is three things: It's top-down — you handled that, you got the White House, the Senate and the House. You handled the top-down. But it's also bottom-up and inside-out. Top-down, bottom-up and inside-out. So now your challenge, as you leave here — our challenge — is to take care of that bottom-up part and that inside-out part: the heart part. That's where we're weak now. And we have the chance as we move forward to take the old admonition from the South African movement and govern from below.

I think that when we look back at the history of the Obama administration, when we look back at the history of our progressive movement, that this week will mark an historic inflection point when progressives decided to be progressive again in this country.

(APPLAUSE)

I think something shifted this week.

South Africa is a fine example.

" Hi there, Im a young south african currently living in Regina. I came to Canada to save myself. I want to start an organisation informing the international world. You all know that South Africa once had apartheid, and it was a terrible time. But now innocent black and whites are being murdered, raped and tortured due to the fact that we a corrupt government, a president that doesnt have an education, and ministers who steal, lie and sing about killing the "Boers"!!"

it seems like a pretty innocuous thing to say. except for "an historic," because that doesn't flow properly. he wants to start making progress again and get the country back on its feet. pretty cool.

but i can see how it would be spooky to people who follow Glenn Beck's "Rules for Scared Crybaby Dumbasses" and think progressive is secret conspiracy code for nazi. but those people aren't rational humans.
