Since the election we’ve been witnessing the intellectual collapse of the left as they try to respond to the outcome without recriminating themselves. Eventually they will get around to reevaluating where their messaging went wrong (not their ideology) and contrive a new formula for fooling enough people into voting D again.
There will be shifts in their stance and a re-branding to try to capture the politically powerful heroic outsider persona. In the coming weeks and months they’ll try to brand Trump as pro-war, repressive of rights, hater of equality and being a self-serving internationalist. They’ll dump their “deplorable” rhetoric and declare themselves the only true champion of the common man.
They’ll call themselves the Alt-Left. It will be a temporary deception to become politically relevant again. You’ll know that they’re done licking their wounds and are ready to bare their teeth when their messaging sharpens up.
