Workers World Party opportunist whateverism and the LGBT milieu

Trust the leadership of Workers World Party to over-egg the pudding of Stalinist ideological rationalizations
Sam Marcy and his epigones excel at this kind of subjective, feel-good boutique politics. The question of political weight is unknown to them.
I'm sure capitalists like Tom Ford and Peter Theil are duly mortified to find themselves co-opted into the proletariat.
"Our party needs to explain that women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender-nonconforming people are part of the working class. Those leftists who dismiss this as “identity politics” — I question them as Marxists and revolutionaries."

  1. this is something becoming endemic to leftist groups throughout the socialist spectrum: the near-total focus on identity politics at the expense of class politics. this isn't surprising given that most of those groups are no longer dominated by working people, but rather students, academics, and professional protesters.
