“Raise your hand if you are a good liberal or a good leftist who has nonetheless voted for a Democrat or a Liberal, holding your nose and ignoring their complicity in drone strikes, war, and global capitalism… Now you know how so many working class whites voted for Trump, even if they personally found his racist, xenophobic, and sexist rhetoric appalling.”

The problem with this logic is that when we voted for Democrats who were complicit in drone strikes, war, and global capitalism, there wasn’t some other alternative who didn’t support those things. Republicans supported even more extreme versions of those exact same policies.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
