A tactic used by neoliberal Democrats to smear Progressives/Social Democrats as 'racists', 'misogynists', 'white supremacists' or a combination of all three. Ever since Bernie Sanders neutralized the term, 'socialist', neoliberal Democrats can no longer effectively red-bait their left-wing opponents, so they have weaponized identity politics against the Left that legitimately gives a shit about social justice. Neoliberal identity politics has largely been bolstered by ignorant, young upper-middle class "intersectional feminists" who smear anyone who criticizes Hillary from the left as "sexist".
Progressive: Man, urban poverty would really be a lot better if we stopped electing neoliberal Democrats like Hillary who keep cutting social programs and deregulating the banks that destroyed the economy in 2008.
Tumblr Feminist: WHICH OF HILLARY'S POLICIES?? I'VE NEVER HEARD YOU CRITICIZE ANY OF THESE OTHER SO-CALLED NEOLIBERALS! YOU'RE A SEXIST!
Progressive: Yep, that's neoliberal identity politics for ya.
