After the Nazis conquered France in WWII, the French responded in one of three main ways. Some fled the country in order to continue resisting the Nazis, either by fighting on the side of the Allies or by participating in a French government-in-exile. Some remained in France and supported the Resistance, living their lives as well as they could but undercutting the Nazi occupiers at every opportunity.
And then there were the Vichy French: politicians and toadies more interested in gaining and preserving power than standing on principle. They formed a government that pretended to represent the French people, but which was sanctioned by the Nazis and was in every important way subservient to them.
Many Democratic politicians are the same: they pretend to be Democrats, to represent Democrats, to oppose the fascistic branch of the Republican Party that currently holds power -- but in reality, Vichy Dems are accommodationists, more interested in retaining their political positions than in actually representing Democratic values or defending American liberties.
This site is dedicated to exposing them and bringing them down: the traitors to the Democratic Party, the Republican-lites, the lefty-neocons, the Iraq War apologists. The Vichy Dems.
Better to elect Republicans than them, because they poison the party. (Remember Zell Miller at the Republican Convention?) Better still to support true Progressives to unseat Vichy incumbents in the primaries. Best of all, to elect true Progressives whenever we can.
Please let me know if you have a "Vichy Dem" story or newslink. Let's identify, undercut, and disappear the Vichys, and get America back.
