Bill Clinton did so well with white working class voters because he rejected Clinton-style neoliberalism. https://t.co/e5yjA2neyW

.@muchprofound: "NeoLiberal" usually means pro-Big Biz Koch-style policies: loose borders, loose regulations, free trade, globalism, etc. All of which the corporate-owned #Vox & @mattyglesias have constantly pushed.

This is not really the claim https://t.co/5AXAZzzx5x

The claim is that Trump withheld congressionally mandated assistance to Ukraine pending Ukraine agreeing to make stuff up about Joe Biden.

@mattyglesias Would you mind walking me through this? Why are we so sure that it was about making stuff up and not… https://t.co/A8LjpsSrZj

.@mockingbuddha: Trump's horrific, but @mattyglesias is a GE-sponsored hack who pushes the Koch/NeoLiberal line. Almost all the opposition to Trump is because - in his own extremely dim way - he's dared go against NeoLiberal orthodoxy.

.@_silversmith: pushing to change min age requirements for Congress is just @mattyglesias slowly marching through the institutions. On issues of interest to GE, he's all NeoLiberal: http://24ahead.com/n/11026

@mattyglesias Our addiction to guns maps perfectly to a severe alcoholics desperate attempt to do anything other than quit drinking.
Tue, Sep 3, 2019 at 9:22 pm
.@markhamiltonmsw: if easy access to guns is the major contributing factor to mass shootings as @mattyglesias thinks (to the extent he thinks), explain why there were few if any non-crime-related mass shootings in all the years that full-auto machine guns were freely available.

.@atheist_in_nc: @mattyglesias & #Vox are funded by GE & push the same NeoLiberal (loose borders, free trade, globalism) policies as the Koch bros. Please provide us with a Marxian analysis.

.@joshtpm: post Katrina, GWB suspended Davis-Bacon *and* suspended most #immigration enforcement. As a result, crooked contractors displaced U.S. workers from cleanup jobs, using illegal aliens - even underage - w/o necessary safety equipment. Which parts of that did TPM oppose?

.@mattsteinglass: hey Matt, @mattyglesias has a corporate-sponsored blog (GE!) He has lots of resources available. Have he or #Vox in general had any impact on Trump or his base? Changed their mind, forced them to change for the better, or anything like that? What use is he?
Fri, Mar 30, 2018 at 8:56 pm
GE-sponsored idiocy: @mattyglesias says "even tho immigration reduces crime *rate* there's always going to be a non-zero level of immigrant crime that can be exploited by demagogues". 1. Considering 2nd/3rd/etc gens, does it really reduce the rate? 2. Why do we need extra crime?

.@ealight461: instead of "tweet[ing] your outrage", channel your outrage into things that are smart & effective, like undercutting Trump.
Thu, Jun 29, 2017 at 9:35 pm
.@ealight461: eg, help organize effort to engage pro-Trumpcare Reps in debate about its downsides. See my pinned tweet.
