Seattle city counsel & Socialist Alternative member Kshama Sawant joins Ryan Grim & Briahna Joy Gray on Bad Faith to debate the strategy, adopted by most of the squad, to vote for the union crushing TA that averted a legal rail workers strike. Ryan Grim has been accused of “running cover” for the squad members’ strategy, while Kshama Sawant argued their vote for a union voting bill was a clear betrayal. Is Ryan right to say it made sense for the squad to follow the advice of some union members who wanted them to adopt that strategy? Or is Kshama right to call that “political gaslighting?” Ryan joins the conversation about half an hour in, and it’s a hot but productive conversation. you wont want to miss it.
