#REPOST From Ajamu Baraka :
“Years after, even NYTs is finally telling truth about the disaster for the working class that the Obama presidency was. He was a small minded political hack & opportunist who’s only agenda was to serve his masters. But BAR & Counterpunch was always clear.”
It is tricky to criticize Obama from the left in the Trump era. There’s still widespread nostalgia and good feeling for Obama as a political figure — and, considering the disaster of the current administration, it feels almost churlish to re-examine his years in office.
We don’t have years to wait for our grassroots ‘to get’ the damage done to the movement by the Dem Party, NPIC, corporate Amerikkka and special interests… especially when Malcolm warned us.”

It rhymes with ‘schneo-liberalism.’ It was an economic disaster and a political dead end.
