For Zohran Mamdani, a Democratic Socialists of America–backed candidate for the New York State Assembly, organizing victims of the foreclosure crisis and supporting threatened immigrants are part of the same fight: the struggle for the right to a home.
Rather than dwell on Elizabeth Warren’s mistakes, let’s focus on her supporters. It’s good to see some of them switching to Bernie Sanders, and there ought to be many more — here are just a few reasons why.
Bernie Sanders’s new plan for universal childcare would not only offer a life-changing service for millions of parents. It would mark a historic victory in the struggle against racial and class segregation.
Jacobin is politically committed. We’re not ashamed of that, and that’s why we need the support of our politically committed readership.
Rival campaigns and hostile journalists are scraping the bottom of the barrel with their latest attacks on Bernie Sanders supporters. Now, apparently, getting owned on Twitter is “harassment,” and when a nurses’ union donates to Bernie, it’s “dark money.”
For feminists, this election presents a clear choice — between advancing the interests of 1 percent of women and fighting for the liberation of the rest. Bernie Sanders is on the side of the 99 percent.
Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s new book, The Book of Gutsy Women, actually isn’t as bad as it could be — at least when it comes to the content. Unfortunately, it shamelessly appropriates other people’s research without the slightest acknowledgment.
Adam Schiff, the liberal hero of impeachment, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the military-industrial complex and a fervent exponent of permanent war.
You might have thought the media’s Bush-era peddlers of Middle East death and mayhem would be too humiliated to show their faces in public. Nope, they’re still here — and now they want war with Iran.

With extreme weather events presenting a grim picture of the future, suddenly politicians felt pressure to offer solutions — and young people started wondering how it would affect their own lives.
Judith Butler donating to Kamala Harris? Martha Nussbaum supporting John Hickenlooper? You can learn as much about a radical academic’s ideas by searching their campaign contributions as by reading their books.
Celebrity attorney Alan Dershowitz has done so many bad things during his life, joining Donald Trump’s impeachment legal team doesn’t even rank among the worst of them.
There are three things Pete Buttigieg wants you to know: He’s smarter than you. He’s allergic to any hint of a progressive agenda. And he’s smarter than you.
From Bill Clinton to Barack Obama, top Democrats have long been beholden to the predatory and socially useless private equity industry. This time, the finance bros are donating in droves to Biden, Buttigieg . . . and Deval Patrick (?). They just really want to stop Bernie Sanders.
Only to frightened elites.
Former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick’s resume reads like a dystopian novel about the nihilism and brutality of contemporary capitalism. He should leave public life forever.
“Medicare for All isn’t politically viable” is the refrain from the pundits. But how many non-pundits have they actually talked to about Medicare for All? Democratic Socialists of America activists have been going door-to-door talking to thousands — here’s what they’ve been hearing.
