Batya Ungar-Sargon is one of most innovative political thinkers in America today. In an interview with Spiked’s Brendan O’Neill she discusses how woke politics harms working class Americans.
GOUSA believes in greater opportunity for all Americans. Over the last twenty years, the top 10 percent of the American public has done very well while working class Americans have been left behind.
In the interview, Unger-Sargon discusses why working class Americans are flocking to the Republican Party, how open-borders immigration hurts poor and lower-income blacks, why the media is biased against working class Americans and why she calls herself a “libertarian Marxist” (not as strange as it sounds).
Batya Ungar-Sargon is the deputy opinion editor of Newsweek and is formerly the opinion editor of Forward, the largest Jewish news outlet in America.
The interview is recommended listening.
