Racism, Islamophobia, Trump
How Can the Left Push Back the Rising Right?
Trump may not be a fascist, but he is providing a space for racist lies and far-right ideas to flourish--and for marginalized individuals to become emboldened to take action on these ideas.  This was demonstrated [in December] by Trump supporters in Birmingham, Alabama, who attacked a Black Lives Matter protester at their rally. Afterward, Trump said, "Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing." […]

As much as the support for Trump represents a growth of support for right-wing policies among a section of the population, another section is moving to the left. In this respect, Bernie Sanders' popular campaign promise for a "political revolution" shows the potential for something different. So does the range of organizing to protest Trump and his racist policies.

We need to build an alternative to Trump's politics of despair--and to the Democrats' politics of the lesser of two evils. That means rebuilding an independent, left-wing alternative that can speak to the needs and desires of large numbers of people for a fundamental change.
