To Defeat Trump … And the Democrats, Fight for Workers Revolution
13 Nov 2016
Modified: 03:19:45 PM
After all the media hype, suddenly it turned out that Republican Donald Trump was elected. The racist, sexist, immigrant-bashing, woman-molesting Trump would be the next CEO of the United States and commander-in-chief of U.S. imperialism. In deep shock and disbelief, tens of millions asked, how could this happen? In Muslim, Latino, African American and immigrant families there was raw fear. Soon mass protests began, with many chanting “Not My President” (as if Democrat Clinton, a certified warmonger, would have been?). At the same time, racist incidents multiplied. It is urgently necessary to fight back, but the question is how? The answer depends on understanding what happened, and why. Trump certainly mobilized the hard-core racist vote, and better-off middle class voters. But what put him over the top was the vote of residents of dying small towns and white workers in the Rust Belt, who have seen their jobs destroyed and cities devastated. The fact is that with their economic policies, the Democrats pushed millions of workers into the arms of Trump. What is urgently needed is to break from the Democrats, Republicans and all capitalist parties and build a class-struggle workers party. Such a party would fight for a program of mass workers action against the deportations, for workers defense guards against racist attacks, and to oppose the imperialist war drive in a struggle leading to workers revolution.

What This Means, How This Happened, What to Do Now
12 Nov 2016
This election is a repudiation of the establishment which means the wisdom of pundits, experts, and elites has been proven hollow...Trump won because of his appeals to racism and sexism and his vicious misogynistic lies about Hillary Clinton... The media is responsible for creating Trump in the first place. But the media also thoroughly failed the country by distorting reality...This complacency was extremely damaging...The left will be doomed if it does not seriously rethink its practices. Let's never treat everything as fine when it clearly isn't. Don't mourn, organize.
