“The majority of the people associated with stupidpol, the Red Scare clique, and the class-first factions of DSA are part of a moderate tendency of reactionary social democracy.”

No, they are racist middle-class (and above) white people masquerading as progressive. There really is no social democracy politically, culturally, or institutionally to speak of in the United States. Blue Labour is a lot closer to being “reactionary social democracy” since they are actually a tendency inside an ostensibly working-class party as opposed to shitposters on the internet podcasting and whatnot.

Kudos for taking the time to put all these receipts together in such a way that someone on the outside of this regressive milieu can readily understand.
