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.

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

.@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.

@mattyglesias Our addiction to guns maps perfectly to a severe alcoholics desperate attempt to do anything other than quit drinking.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@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?

From @24aheaddotcom_
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?
