Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You lost because the DNC collaborates with - and is a tool of - the Capitalist Party, which has been promoting economic fascism and preventing progressive change in countries around the world for at least a century now.

The DNC has always been good at presenting the appearance of token progress while standing on its own feet to make sure as little progress as possible happens.

Why do you think Clinton worked so hard to support NAFTA? Why do you think Obama spent all his time "reaching across the aisle" and "negotiating'?

Why does the Democratic Party feel such a deep need to do this, while the Republicans treat power as an excuse to ignore local and global opposition?

And as for identity politics - nope.

Identity politics is the convenient misdirection that keeps the left permanently distracted from the burning core of barbaric economic injustice that underpins politics and business in the US. Nothing will really change - including deep progress on social justice and opportunity - until that injustice ends.
