In fairness to Freddie, his vision for a Left America is not the same as Woke America. Broadly speaking, I agree. I’m a conservative as well, and the idea that people could be fired in 2017 for taking the same stance on gay marriage that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton took in 2008 simultaneously amuses and horrifies me.
To Freddie’s credit, he is not a liberal — he is a Marxist. And wherever I disagree with Marxism’s aims, it is — at least — a coherent political philosophy. The current state of the American left is as alien to Freddie as it is to conservatives, which is why Freddie is taking the beating from his erstwhile left allies.
