The ongoing falling out between the Left and the neoliberals is a great thing to behold. This is the real future of the Left/Right battle in the US, i.e. social democrats vs neoliberals with the neoconservative-turned-faux populist Republicans increasingly becoming a fringe right-wing party as their demographic base continues to shrink, although look for the GOP to move leftward on some issues (probably with some centrist-liberal/quasi-populist/business-labor coalition Christian Democrat-like economic gestures) as they try to play the neoliberals and social democrats against each other.

Some MSNBC commentators are under fire by the left for harsh criticism of Sen. Bernie Sanders, with at least one call on social media for a national TV network that serves “the actual left.”
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is facing calls to resign after he compared Bernie Sanders’ victory in the Nevada caucus to the Nazi invasion of France, Newsweek reported. Sanders won the Nevada Democratic caucuses with 47 percent of the vote.
There were calls for MSNBC to stop comparing the campaign of a Jewish presidential candidate whose family members were wiped out by the Nazis to the Third Reich.
