If Progressives Don’t Wake Up To How Awful Obama Was, Their Movement Will Fail
Caitlin Johnstone

Thank you I needed that. After years of left engagement I got sucked into his vortex but thankfully only briefly. When I more cautiously point out how awful he was and is to liberals — oh how they defend him. I’ve decided my standard reply to any defense of him and neoliberalism is to point out capitalism can’t exist without racism and sexism or war so defending capitalism is defending all of what you claim to be against. But with our inadequate response to climate change our species may be on the way out and I think I hear the other organisms on the planet cheering our demise. I’m making amends by being a part of the real resistance. In solidarity.
