Urging a vote against fascism in November, while damning President Biden with faint praise or singularly leaning into his mistakes and shortcomings or simply leaving him out of the conversation altogether, may seem strategically astute and morally imperative, but it is neither. Such an approach, if taken seriously by too many of the main actors in the coalition to defeat Trump would doom the efforts of the rest to prevent Trump’s return to the White House. Such a posture might resonate with a section of the left and newly radicalized young people as well as inflate the vote count of Joe Kennedy Jr. and Cornell West, but it doesn’t get us a flea hope closer to defeating Trump and electing Biden.
