What a strange era we live in.
Today I find myself quoting the work of likely Trotskyist Glenn Greenwald in which he defends President-elect Donald Trump out of a sense of fair play. Greenwald is no friend of the Democratic Party; it’s not left-wing enough for him.
His piece in the Intercept, “The Deep State Goes to War with President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer,” is essential reading despite its Noam Chomsky-like feel.
There is a “faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as ‘Fake News.’”
