Andrew Stewart: Bipartisan grassroots resistance to the TPP | | Rhode Island Media Cooperative
What has fascinated me to no end this election season is the level of grassroots bipartisan rejectionism to the neoliberal political agenda made mainstream in the past quarter century. Trump and Sanders both have embraced and played on this element with their constituencies, though I think Trump also has been a bit less disciplined than Sanders in terms of political messaging and ideological clarity, not to mention the fact he is an outright racist and loudmouth extraordinaire whose ego is larger than his ridiculous skyscraper. But nonetheless, take a look at these three videos. All of them are opposed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a neoliberal coup in the making that Obama is dying to sign into law. From Credo Mobile to the John Birch Society? That looks like the makings of a united front from below if you ask me.
