Lefties Need To Stop Being Shy About Working With The Anti-Establishment Right
Caitlin Johnstone

Absurd calls to work with the “anti-establishment” right are fascist-apologist nonsense

This is fascist-apologist nonsense. The “alt-right” — a 21st-century rebranding of fascism —is and will always be the enemy of anyone who is truly on the left.

The fascist alt-right is part of the very same system held up by both conservatives and liberals. “Establishment” is a meaningless buzzword, a euphemism that avoids describing the system we are up against: capitalism, imperialism, white supremacy, and patriarchy — all of which the alt-right ardently upholds and defends.

The “anti-establishment right” — ie, neo-fascist movement — does not have a single problem with this system. It seeks to ultimately save capitalism, strengthen empire, and preserve white supremacy and patriarchy.

No actual leftist believes the drivel in this article. At best, this is politically asinine opportunism; at worst, this is counterinsurgency work written to try to discredit and ultimately destroy the revolutionary left.
