How the Further Left Critiques the Mostly Left
Native American activist John Trudell was interviewed (from SF) on CBC Radio One's "The Current" this morning. I thought it was interesting to hear how one activist critiqued another . . . assuming that Obama was in fact an activist.
Interviewer: "America elected a former social activist from Chicago, a lawyer who is not a white man . . . to be the president. What did you expect from Obama when he was running for that job?"
JT: "I expected nothing from Obama . . . I think Obama was put into office to serve the interests of the industrial ruling class . . . I don't think he was put there to look out for the interests of the vast majority of citizens, let alone native people."
