Prof. Cole calls it “propaganda” when someone accurately characterizes the neoliberal, entitlement slashing, mass-incarcerating, NAFTA/TPP-championing Clintons as “anti-labor.”
But this bit of liberal gaslighting is akin to labeling someone a propagandist for “misrepresenting” Donald Trump as a racist.
Because sometimes the record speaks for itself, Professor, so clearly that no amount of partisan hackery can obfuscate the truth.
With “Democrats” like these in charge, even slave-labor economies like Malaysia’s are given America’s blessing (not that the U.S. has room to talk, with more African-Americans in cages, laboring for pennies an hour, than at the height of Antebellum slavery – per Michelle Alexander’s deservedly acclaimed and indispensable “The New Jim Crow”).
Good liberals need to stop trying to put lipstick on the disease-ridden and debased pig that is the modern, primary-rigging, left-silencing Democratic Party. Post-1970s Democrats are nothing more than the other far-right, warmongering, environment-destroying, systemic racists obliterating the rule of law, normalizing torture/assassination/spying, and crushing dissent on behalf of omnicidal plutocrats.
Neo-fascist, “moderate,” radically conservative, or whatever you want to label the Clintons and their ilk, the last thing you could call them is “pro-labor.”
Please stop lying to the left.
