Trotskyists showed themselves all too willing to accommodate fascist forces, particularly during the Spanish Civil War, to isolate the Soviet Union. The deception of the Trotskyists led to the motto, “Never trust a Trot,” being heard at progressive political and labor gatherings around Europe, Australia, and North America.
Today, those forces face a situation not seen since the 1930s. Global fascism is on the march and the left is engaged in factionalized rivalry.
The schism between so-called “Independent Socialist” Bernie Sanders and traditional pro-labor Democratic candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden continues the Trotskyist program to divide.
Trotskyists have always believed in “my way or the highway” even if the highway is one to the collapse of democratic and constitutional governance.
