The shitstorm over the platform of the National Women's March escalates.

Mainstream and liberal media are resurrecting the "identity politics"
debate (i.e. "Hillary should have told those minorities to piss off," and
"why don't you talk about white workers?")

Fact of the matter is that the NWM DOES talk class. See:

Of course as with every issue it's mostly talked about in "progressive"
abstractions. But it's there.

P.S. In discussing this controversy with a friend, she pointed me to a
great article by Sara Salem counterposing Marxist-feminist
intersectionality to neoliberal diversity politics:
