To think of a united front against the Republican Party and the larger right wing authoritarian movement that fails to include President Biden and the Democratic Party is the worse kind of sectarian nonsense. It has the smell of radicalism and left wing polltics, I suppose, but not the substance. It’s a form of radicalism that, strategically speaking, gives little thought to what kind of coalition stands any chance of defeating the gathering white nationalist authoritarian juggernaut, while preserving our democracy and setting the stage for a new era of social progress.
