For the first time in decades, the US rulers have begun to fear
the working class.
That, above all, is what the 2016 US election revealed.
Why the fear? Because millions of working people are starting
to reject being made to bear the brunt of capitalism’s global
economic and social crisis and brutal wars.
Hillary Clinton contemptuously called workers who refused
to vote for her irredeemable “deplorables.”
Winner Donald Trump tries to divide and weaken us—
demagogically targeting Mexicans, Muslims, unionists, women,
and others—while lining the bosses’ pockets.
The Clintons’ Anti-Working-Class Record documents the
profit-driven course over the last quarter century of the party
of capital, Democrat and Republican alike. It explains the
awakening anger, the expanding and wide-ranging discussion
among working people seeking to understand and effectively
resist the capitalists’ assaults.
