Actual quotes from this new CIA recruitment ad:
"I am a woman of color"
"I am a cisgender millennial"
"I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder"
"I am intersectional"
I think it's safe to say the contemporary American left has failed.pic.twitter.com/ruUzWSeIur

Yes, power co-opts the language of the left
No, it wouldn't co-opt "workers of the world unite!"
Yes, struggles around identity are struggles for survival, dignity & justice
No, struggles around identity without roots in class & anti-imperialism are not projects of the left
