I think there's a tension between the kind of leftism that emphasizes class struggle the kind that emphasizes SJW issues.one can support both but sometimes classical leftism and SJW issues are at odds with each other (Muslims and Hispanic immigrants aren't the biggest supporters of gays), but I noticed that often people emphasize one side much more than the other. As we know, the people who care about issues like slut shaming or gender pronouns are not the working class people, they're the well-off academics and hipsters. Therefore, it's easy to see if someone is committed to supporting the working class, they might ignore issues that those people don't care about. And conversely, if someone really cares about non-class social justice issues, they might look at low class people with condescension as unsophisticated, since they are usually the biggest opponents of social liberalism.
An example I saw recently was a couple days age when ChapoTrapHouse users were making fun of a Poor alcoholic man because he didn't believe Transwomen were women

That's a very good point. I hope whoever the Democrats nominate this year is strong in electability for most (if not all) demographics of the left. Ideally, I like Bernie, but realistically, I think Warren could be agreeable among a lot of people and do a good job.
People aren't going for Bernie so much this time because he already lost internally once so there's no way he could get enough votes out of on the fencers.
He's too socialist for the majority to go for him.
I didn't watch the debate and I don't care until the primary's because it's not like the public has any effect until then. But I'm not really hopeful that the Democrats can keep Trump from another term.
Those people vote against their own interests by voting for people like Trump, who roll back regulations on businesses.
Why the fuck would we hate them if we support legislature that helps them?
I really think he's being a bit cagey about the specifics bc these leeches are constantly piggybacking off his platform even when he's vague.
Bernie really has a shot with the people imo.Rip yang
Agreed. Bernie would do better if he emphasized that a lot of the major talking points being brought up are only because of his 2016 run.
I was hoping that they'd grill Kamala on her past as a prosecutor, but alas…

I'm so intrigued by Marianne Williamson. I like her as a fringe/niche candidate better than Yang. It'd be so weird watching a 'live, laugh, love' type lady lead the country as president. I'm not saying she should be the nomination, but I'm entertained by the prospect of if she were to advance.
