Non-COVID Link of the Day

I left the Democrats forever and ever and ever but this article by Matt Taibbi about the Dem infighting is brilliant and worth reading. To me, it’s pox on both their houses but it’s nice to see somebody realize (even though he gets terrified of it and hides from the realization immediately) that the jargon of “anti-racism” is a ploy to rob and humiliate earnest believers in economic justice.

What’s really funny is that, in the article, Taibbi does the same thing he correctly criticizes in Bernie Sanders. He allows the racial-justicey bleating cower him into submission two sentences after he timidly dares to criticize it.

Serves him right. Serves them all right.

  1. “it’s nice to see somebody realize…the jargon of ‘anti-racism’ is a ploy to rob and humiliate earnest believers in economic justice.”

    There’s nothing new about this. This is a common political position among many on the anti-capitalist/socialist left. This is the view of socialist intellectuals like Walter Benn Michaels and Adolph Reed, who are frequently accused of being “class reductionists.”
