Aug 9, 2015 Andy Niable commented on Black Lives Matter Activists Interrupt Bernie Sanders at Social Security Rally.
This is hardly first time the Left has made this mistake.

The foundation of effective engagement, ESPECIALLY with potential ALLIES, is "First you talk and I listen, then I talk and you listen." Without that understanding and skill, "activists" become "distractivists."

Mar 2, 2014 Andy Niable commented on The 2014 Oscars Live-Slog!.
Has there ever actually been a *good* (much less great) Oscar telecast? I think it's an impossibility unless Joan Rivers and Don Rickels co-host it as a roast...
Feb 27, 2014 Andy Niable commented on A Baker Refused to Make Your Wedding Cake?.
@3 From such a sign, does that mean we are to assume that all Christians are homophobic and walk away from said door to said business?

Talk to the many allies of faith we had in the Referendum 71 fight, you might learn not all of them are unworthy of our in-kind support. (And I say this as a proud atheist with Christian, pro-LGBTQ friends).
Dec 7, 2013 Andy Niable commented on Elton John Denounces Russian Anti-LGBT Laws During Performance in Moscow.
And an example of why we shouldn't boycott the Sochi Olympics. Elton was challenged not to go. Instead he went--and made his point there on the Russian soil.
Dec 4, 2013 Andy Niable commented on Gay Man Chosen for Pointless Job.
I love it when the Slog prints obituaries.
Nov 13, 2013 Andy Niable commented on If King County Elections Says Your Ballot "Will Be Counted," It Probably Already Has Been.
My ballot--which I turned in at the drop box outside of King County Admin building, days before election day--remains stuck in "Track Point 2"
Oct 9, 2013 Andy Niable commented on In Which Sam Bellomio Answers a Slog Commenter's Question.
And thus we face the core problem of so much of the Occupy kerfuffle: "You can't tell me what to do" is not an effective model for governing OR government. It's the impractical tantrum of the Libertarian.
