Meet the democratic socialist (and poet!) running against Nancy Pelosi

Meet the quality of candidates that California has to offer their constituents:

Nancy Pelosi has been in office since 1987. Her current term expires January 3, 2021. And their ain’t NO WAY she’s giving up her power.

Given the background and qualifications of this democratic socialist running against Nancy, Shahid Buttar, she’s more than likely to win another re-election (unless by some miracle a republican gets elected).

Let’s learn a bit more about Shahid, shall we? From his web site:

“Since graduating from Stanford Law School in 2003, Shahid has worked in both San Francisco and Washington as a legal advocate, a non-profit leader, a grassroots organizer, and a poet & musician. His wide-ranging work reflects a commitment to intersectional feminism, democratic socialism, and international human rights. His passions have long aligned around a common purpose: building the movement to place human rights and human needs like peace and climate justice before corporate profits.

In addition to LGBTQ rights, privacy, and the right to encryption, Shahid’s work has also advanced immigrant rights, campaign finance reform, government transparency, international human rights, and police accountability. His writing has explored issues from the right-wing attack on reproductive freedom to the erosion of voting rights, and from effective counter-terrorism strategies to examples of counter-cultural activism promoting progressive politics at the intersection of art and organizing.

An immigrant of Pakistani descent from the United Kingdom and the youngest of four children, Shahid grew up in the midwest and first came to the Bay Area in 2000 to study law at Stanford.

While a student at Stanford Law School, he served as Executive Editor of the Stanford Environmental Law Journal and professor Lawrence Lessig’s teaching assistant for Constitutional Law. He also spear-headed a campaign to promote sustainable building practices by the university, a day of action to shut down a Lockheed Martin facility, and a student strike against the war in Iraq.

After growing immersed in the movement to end the war, Shahid moved to Washington to work for Heller Ehrman LLP, a San Francisco-based law firm that later collapsed during the 2008 financial crisis. His work there included litigation championing the right to marry the partner of one’s choice—nearly 10 years before the Democratic establishment finally embraced marriage equality—and an appeal defending bipartisan campaign finance reform from being undermined by the Federal Election Commission.”

Outside of his work as an advocate and organizer, Shahid performs as a DJ, MC, and poet. He also organizes artists, and has co-founded several collectives of politicized performance artists on both coasts.”

Some of his endorsements include left-wing actress Susan Sarandon, the anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, race-baiter Dr. Cornel West and faux black man Shaun King.

Stellar list of endorsements ‘ya got there, Shahid.

His name alone should be enough to disqualify this undesirable (deplorable), but then pelosi is a name that should have been ‘shunned’ long ago,…all so.

Really seems to be the strategy of the republican party, to present very little opposition, or resistance to democratic policy, spending more effort feigning resistance, than any at all pressing honest conservative values.

Is it where you come to an intersection in your gender confusion and don’t know what road to take?
Like, take the hormone shots, or just lop off the dinghy?
