Amith: “Is there any serious case that can be made that that resistance --
and our connection
with those communities that will lead it -- would be stronger under
Donald Trump than under Hillary Clinton?”


Yes.  Hillary would get the benefit of the doubt from many progressives
because she would be the first woman President, and many male progressives
in particular would be inhibited from criticizing her for fear of being
labeled sexist.  This will dampen resistance to her Kissinger-style foreign
policies, for example.  On the other hand, what progressives would be
intimidated going after Trump?  As a white male heterosexual Christian
Republican, he’s the perfect storm for the oppressed.


Economist Michael Hudson wrote on Counterpunch recently that Hillary is the
greater evil precisely because she is more organized, intellectually
capable and has better connections to the Establishment.
