• Ep. 56: Jacobin’s “Autopsy Report”: We Could Have Told Them So (and We Did)

    The anti-neoliberal “left” has long argued that it can win over much of Trump’s white-nationalist base by offering economic populism and social-democratic programs. Yet Jacobin’s own recent “autopsy report” suggests that this just ain’t so. In this special Thanksgiving/Hanukkah episode of RFH, Brendan and Andrew wonder whether the Jacobinites will choose to ignore their own advice. The co-hosts think it is too little, too late in any case. They also say “we could have told them so” and “we have told them so.” They then support this last contention with encore presentations of excerpts from RFH episodes of the past two years. The excerpts deal with the motivations of Trump’s base, the implosion of the Bernie Sanders campaign, the Black Lives Matter uprising’s repudiation of Jacobin’s color-blind populism, and more.
