Crossing Ideological Lines: The Case of Glenn Greenwald and Tucker Carlson
[C]ross-ideological collaboration (I call it a 'con job') would revolve around a fight versus a mutual enemy, while disregarding all other equally important goals: an alliance that focuses on a conflict against the "establishment", while ignoring/postponing the left's struggle for ideals and objectives that will lead to a better future.
I claim that promoting such a notion is ultimately counterproductive.

In their shock and fear, the Israeli elites, liberals and media responded in a conciliatory fashion to Benjamin Netanyahu's surprising ascendancy, a move which led to the overall decline of the Israeli left. I believe the parallels are very important to emphasize, as are the lessons for the American left.
