On this episode of the The Federalist Radio Hour, Saagar Enjeti joined Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss why a populist Left-Fight labor coalition is unlikely. Enjeti hosts the web show “Rising” at The Hill as well as The Hudson Institute’s “The Realignment” podcast.
Enjeti argued against the possibility of a Left-Right coalition because of the Left’s obsession with race politics that divides Americans. The resulting division, Enjeti said, is a tool to distract the American working class from noticing the class dynamics that allow the upper class neoliberal left to hold them down.
“The chief thing I wanted to get across is I do not think a Left-Right labor coalition is possible or even politically necessary in the days after the democratic party has fully made the decision they want to become the party of upper middle class white suburbanites,” Enjeti said.
