The Left acknowledged / Bashing the fash

Today we’re discussing the special election in District 6 for the Los Angeles City Council. Nury Martinez was pushed out of office after racist comments emerged in a secret recording between her and other members of council.

Today, in a special election, seven people in the district are vying for her seat. One LA Times reporter asked where the Left is landing in the race.

We discuss mainstream media’s interest in progressive electoralist elements, and how that may translate to Sacramento.

We also take a moment for the far-right attacks in the Sacramento region against trans rights, and how both the community and media responded to the threat.

Wanna see some Proud Boys on the run? Watch here.

Thanks for listening, defund the police and, as always:
