The Trump administration’s war on working people has emboldened the far right, leading to a rise in violent attacks by extremists. The “alt-right” and KKK have rallied openly in Berkeley, Portland, and Charlottesville as they cohere their forces around scapegoating the poor, minorities, women, immigrants, and people of color for rising inequality and social despair.
Democratic politicians have failed to pose a real alternative to Trump and the right, instead saying that we need to hold back on demands that would help working people, like taxing the rich, single payer healthcare, and a living wage.
At the same time, the opportunities to build the left and socialist organization are the best they’ve been in decades. We need to build a mass movement to defeat the far right on the streets and construct a left political alternative that raises people’s hopes and builds solidarity against the right’s attempt to pit working people against each other.
Socialism, a democratic working class movement from below, and socialist organization must be a central to this new left if we want to effectively challenge Trump and the far right and fight for a better future.
