The Hardline Trotskyist Running a 2020 Campaign That Makes Bernie Look Centrist

The candidate of the Butchers of Kronstadt Party? But at least these commie-types have the number on the liberal Democrats and the social democrats.

Jeff Mackler is to the left of the left of the left. A self-proclaimed Trotskyist, he believes Bernie Sanders and the Democratic Socialists of America—the growing party focused on the “left wing of the possible“—are unnervingly compromised. He thinks “Medicare for All” doesn’t begin to go far enough, that most wealth taxes are far too kind to the rich, and that anything short of complete eradication of the military budget is an imperialist victory. And don’t even get him started on self-proclaimed capitalist reformers like Elizabeth Warren.
