    No, they speak for those who are against neoliberalism, which is radical itself. It has a strong manifestation in American politics, and the protestors are speaking up against it.

    Is 'radical' your best insult? What does it even mean anymore?

    I guess you've missed the 20 polls this year that shows the majority of Americans support eliminating the tax breaks for the rich.

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
