Cornel West: Why There Is a Serious Danger of a Right-Wing Revolution in the US

by George Souvlis and Cornel West

“We must choose between a neo-fascism in the making (Trump), neo-liberalism in the decaying (Clinton), and a neo-populism in the ascending (Sanders).” So says Dr. Cornel West, the nation’s most influential Black public intellectual and a key Bernie Sanders supporter. Not only are “the establishments in both the Democratic and Republican parties disintegrating,” says West, but “the neo-liberal sleepwalking in Black America is coming to an end.”

Why is Cornel West Sheep-Dogging for the Democrats – Once Again?

by BAR editor and columnist Ajamu Baraka

Cornel West has thrown his support to Bernie Sanders, the nominal socialist – but unquestionable Democrat – running for president. Dr. West says Sanders “tells the truth about Wall Street, white supremacy, empire, patriarchy and homophobia.” Really? The author says West has some explaining to do. “Brother West, you can’t quote King on his stance against militarism and support a candidate that is unable to utter a word against U.S. militarism.”
