The Democrats Aren’t Bad at Politics. Their Politics Are Bad

Jim Crow Joe’s Voting Rights Speech Made a Mockery of the Civil Rights Movement
Joe Biden cynically spoke out in favor of voting rights, pretending to have been an activist in the civil rights movement. But for all his talk about expanding democracy, Biden serves, strengthens, legitimizes, and protects the racist, undemocratic system under which we live.

“We run this society and we can shut it down”: Reflections on the Rittenhouse Trial
The Rittenhouse verdict is an indictment of the racist capitalist system. We can neither rely on the capitalist Democratic party to help us, nor can we afford to get stuck in a vicious cycle of mutual aid efforts that is entrenched in a constant state of responding to capitalist crises. To rid ourselves of this racist capitalist system, we must come together and shut it down.
