Bonus quote:

“The fear not to make any compromises with the alt-right can muddy the degree to which we are already compromised by it.

“The obscenity of the situation is breath-taking: global capitalism is now presenting itself as the last protection against fascism, and if you try to point this out you are accused of complicity with fascism.”
