The Squad and their supporters in the liberal online media world
who’ve fallen in line behind Biden, Pelosi and Schumer would be
happy if everyone forgot about #ForceTheVote. But you know who
didn’t forget? The GOP's Freedom Caucus, which is currently using
its leverage to extract concessions in exchange for their Speaker
vote in exactly the same way many progressives had hoped The Squad
would do at this time two years ago. But that didn't happen, and as
a result these so-called "progressives" were exposed as go-along,
get-along institutionalists who would never challenge the power
centers of the Democratic Party.
Jimmy and Useful Idiots podcast host Aaron Maté discuss the legacy of #ForceTheVote and what might have been accomplished had House progressives been willing to use their power to move a leftist political agenda forward.
Plus a segment hosted by Aaron speaking with The Grayzone's Anya Parampil about the sad end to Juan Guaidó's tenure as the pretend President of Venezuela.
