politics

“The Democratic Party Establishment, now spinning desperately to cover their own strategic incompetence is blaming the white working class as “deplorable” racists. Progressives and leftists who echo this line are making the worst mistake possible.” – Listening to Trump

“Consider the working-class voters whom the Clintons or the Blairs exhorted to vote for them in the 1990s: they are probably worse off now than they were then. In effect the Clintons and Blairs surfed on their grievances and inequities, making themselves rich and leaving their voters in the dust. This hasn’t gone unnoticed, which is one reason the old politics is no longer working.” – LRB · R.W. Johnson · Trump: Some Numbers
