The left's failure to participate in "electoralism" four years ago has gotten tens of thousands of Americans killed. It's taken away health coverage for millions, it's led to a response effort to Hurricane Maria and Covid-19 that has killed more POC than racist cops could in decades. It's led to the appointment of a rapist to the supreme court who has voted against LGBT protections and will vote against progressive reform for potentially the next 30+ years. It's led to a sharp uptick in ICE separating kids from their parents at the borders and making them sleep under tinfoil blankets on the floor. The Iran Deal, the Paris accord, the WHO. The FCC killing net neutrality. The hundreds of judicial nominees the Trump administration has put forth. The immigration bans. The trade wars. In four years the Trump administration has objectively done more harm to people and policy than fourty years of protests could ever undo. Everyone who choses not to participate in "electoralism" or denies it's importance is the moral equivalent of a dude in a MAGA hat in my book. They are equal partners in everything that could have been averted in the gap between Trump and Clinton, and potentially Trump and Biden. I can't overstate my lack of respect for that dumb, indefensible viewpoint.
