Chomsky: 'Democrats Have Given Up On The White Working Class' "It’s a very frightened country, and that’s increasing now with the recognition that the white population is going to be a minority pretty soon, “they’ve taken our country from us.” That’s the Republicans. There are no more moderate Republicans. They are now the centrist Democrats. Of course the Democrats are drifting to the right right after them. The Democrats have pretty much given up on the white working class. That would require a commitment to economic issues, and that’s not their concern."
