GUEST: Luma Nichol, longtime socialist, feminist, queer activist, and writer for the Freedom Socialist Newspaper, talks about her current organizing against the resurgent far right in California.
Impeachment, Is It a Solution
Luma Nichol doesn't think much of impeachment. The problem, she implies, is the entire system. The Dems love to talk about Russia. That means that they don't have to change their pro-corpoate values.
It only takes a step back to realize that the demonizing of Russian is an old Democratic Party strategy. Ralph Nader served the same purpose. As long as loyal Dems were able to focus their hatred on some external villain, they could go on cheating the working people of this country, ignoring the party's racist support of Black oppression, expanding the prison industrial complex, and waging new wars abroad. Impeachment will not change either political party, and Luma's arguments are very persuasive.
