The Rotten, Rancid, Woke Core of the Democratic Party

Norman Finkelstein begins his interview by rightly correcting Glen Greenwald and saying that the Democratic Party is not the left. He points out that, unlike decades ago when the Republican Party defended the spy agencies, it is now the Democratic Party that defends the CIA. Finkelstein argues that the neoliberal Democratic Party attacked the New Deal wing of its party in shutting down Bernie Sanders. The purpose of the woke left is: to 1) find a new base to replace the working class; 2) keep class struggle from sharpening in the working class; and 3) present a veneer of progress through identity politics.
