“Strategic Extremism”: How Republicans and Establishment Democrats Use Identity Politics to Divide and Rule
Until Trump came along, the Republican Party whipped up support among Evangelical Christians by appealing to “moral” issues like abortion (as if free healthcare, for instance, isn’t a moral issue). Because Trump obviously isn’t a Christian, it would have been harder to sell him to Evangelical voters were it not for his platform of Islamophobia. Trump’s cultural provocations are used as a weapon to motivate Republican voters and conceal his egregious economic policies, like Executive Order 13772 on Core Principles for Regulating the United States Financial System, which seeks to further liberalize damaging financial markets.Equally, in an effort to avoid core economic issues, establishment Democrats have traditionally appealed to cultural progressiveness, like gay rights.

You could recommend some news-sites you know.

First the Mendocino fire and mudslides strike her Summerland home now this maui one. I'm seeing a common denominator here. I think Oprah is an arsonist.

How about how it immediately hirts goyim? Why is shot only bad if a Jew is affected?

I mean let's give a parallel example:

It would be pretty ridiculous to talk about false rape accusations primarily hurt the real victims of rape and not mention the men hurt by the false allegations.

Incredible… And this is supposed to be an ally and a leftist. By the way the sanctions go way back to 2014 at the least. It's amazing how they twist everything everywhere. Honestly Chomsky has lost at least for me, some of the respect I had for him, when he comes up with half-assed analysis of stuff from Venezuela. I get a more conscious and precise analysis from an old guy drinking coffee in Café Venezuela at the Bolívar square in Caracas than from Chomsky.

Where may I find this analysis?

Chompsky is going to rest in the halls of Ankor when he dies lol
