"The Capitalists Are Afraid"

Common Dreams is dreaming again. It may be a nightmare, actually.
The capitalists are determined to protect their wealth. They are determined, and probably able, to block left-leaning candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders from obtaining the Democratic nomination for president. But they are also aware that politicians such as Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden who have spent their careers serving corporate power are harder and harder to sell to the electorate. The mendacity and hypocrisy of the Democratic Party are evident in the presidency of Barack Obama, who ran as an outsider and reformer in the wake of the 2008 financial meltdown. Obama—whom Cornel West called “a black mascot for Wall Street”—callously betrayed the party’s base.
The piece ends with a prediction of 'monstrosities worse than Donald Trump,' which makes me think it must be the author who is afraid.

As with groups using the word "truth" in their titles being immediately suspect of dissembling, any group advertising its values as shared or near-universal or "common" can be counted on to be a minority opinion.

Trump is hardly a monstrosity. The more time goes on, the more I think nearly all opposition to Trump is snobbery.
