A real Left would have redirected this anger at the profiteers and politicians who failed the workers, giving them only crumbs in the form of stimulus payments. A worker-focused Left would argue for the appropriation of corporate delivery systems like Amazon for basic necessities if they wanted people to stay home, end evictions, protect wages, support those who continued to work, and much more. None of that happened, but at least Mr. Potato Head is now gender neutral. Tell that to the next class reductionist who wants to be protected from eviction!
