Hedges spoke of wiping out the Democrats and Republicans, and ended with the declaration: “I will fight fascists not because we will win. I will fight fascists because they are fascists.” (He did not identify any specific “fascists.”) …. Sawant claimed, “The leadership in this city is not coming from corporate politicians but from our movement.”
