8. That's not true

Anyone of any political persuasion can criticize "elites". The difference is that far right claims of a "globalist" conspiracy have their roots in anti-Semitic notions about Jews controlling the global economy. The "alt-right" is anti-Semitic, while the populist left includes Jews.

That one is critical of corporations and trade agreements or skeptical about elections does not make one in alliance with the far right.

Frankly, the left has done a much better job of exposing and opposing the far right than mainstream corporate Democrats.

I'm an unapologetic leftist and have never considered voting for Jill Stein. A good leftist is a good anti-fascist.

Here is a web site that criticizes right-wing populism and explains its origins. It is a left-wing website:

The last thing I want to see is a resurgence of McCarthyism on DU.
