I for one dont like how the Left was rebranded by both sides. In the classical sense, Obama was in fact an Authoritarian Centrist and Neoliberal globalist.
One cannot apparently claim to be Left but still desire Nationalism, protectionism, and be opposed to the brutal unforgiving globalism and unfair trade deals that rob Americans of jobs. Both sides lambast you, the supposed Left would accuse you of being a racist, homophobe, islamaphobe or worse. The Right accuses you of being a socialist or a communist.
