Left YouTube star Kyle Kulinski and leftist running back for the LA Chargers Justin Jackson join us to make the definitive case for the #ForceTheVote movement. Justin explains how the debate that has divided the left all started -- walking us through his viral exchange with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Kyle weighs in with his expertise as a co-founder of Justice Democrats, the group that recruited AOC. Has the squad drifted from the original purpose of the Justice Democrats?: To be a group that's truly oppositional to corporate Democrats -- the Tea Party of the left?
Brie lets off some steam about the Bad Faith arguments circulating online, including a recent Jacobin article that, despite its smug bluster, fails to answer a critical question: How does the left plan to draw attention to the gap between what 88% of Democratic voters want, and what barely half of House Democrats will provide? And if not now, during a global pandemic, when will we put real pressure on the party to provide healthcare as a human right?
