I’m inspired to share this post that a friend placed on Facebook this week.
Exhibit A: Trump lectures Elijah Cummings on the fact that the Democratic Party machine in Baltimore has been stealing, double-dipping and wasting federal aid for decades, which any worker, especially any worker who is Black, would nod their head up and down in recognition of the obvious fact. And that the city is overrun by rats.
Then we learn that the President’s son-in-law and high ranking advisor, Jared Kushner, is the slum landlord who owns many of the rat infested buildings were working people live.
This is what we mean when we say the two capitalist parties are in a state of crisis and increasingly unable to rule, either in a practical sense or in a moral sense.
The difference today is that workers are becoming less inclined to take it lying down.
