Most of the Democrats who’ve declared for the 2020 nomination represent the very worst in US politics. From Gabbard who is an anti-Semite, Zionist, Islamophobe, Hindutva supporter to Klobuchar who jokes about her notorious abuse & humiliation of staff. Bernie Sanders has now formally declared & his most ardent supporters include the academic left in the US but also serious political activists. To my mind, & based on his performance in the 2016 elections, he represents the most opportunist current in US politics. I’m going to go after him without mercy since opportunism & expedience in US electoral politics is one of its most debilitating qualities. I don’t tolerate compromise or equivocation when it comes to human rights. Nothing I say about him should be considered criticism of those, & does not adhere to those, who support him.
