"Far left"

...and someone said, "the far left wing of the Democratic Party". What, the Democrats have a Trotskyite wing? Leslie Fish is writing anarchist campaign songs for the Democratic Party? NOT!

The real far left is Troskyite, Maoist, Stalinist, anarchist. Not Hilary Clinton. Not Barbara Boxer. Not even Bernie Sanders, independent socialist Congressman from Vermont.

To Democrats who complain about the far left of the Democratic Party: I wish you'd stop; you're playing into the hands of your opponents.

To Republicans and conservatives who task the Democrats with their supposed far left wing: the US Democratic Party has no far left wing. What are you doing about the far right wing of the Republican Party? So tell me, how is it that the religious right radicals, the corporate authoritarians, and the nationalist radicals are making Republican policy? Why did you let these people start a war? Why did you let them impeach a president? And why, for heavens sake, do you want to hand the judiciary to them?

It doesn't seem likely to me; but "politics makes strange bedfellows" (hoo boy!)
