She is part of this grouping trying to derail movement building by pushing this idea that the left and right have enough in common to work together.
This is essentially the line which was used by Norman Thomas when he decided to work with the America Firsters instead of the People’s Front. With this line, Norman Thomas left the huge, powerful Socialist Party of the United States in ruins.
Ironically, these people pose themselves as some kind of super-leftists.
In the case of this Caitlin Johnstone, she is willing to work with a bunch of racist bigots like Mike Cernovich. How could any real leftist even suggest working with a scumbag like Cernovich?
Certainly not anyone who wants to build a united movement for real reforms and socialism which requires the unity of all people which requires a struggle against racism.
So, why are so many people claiming to be leftists providing money to Caitlin Johnstone to peddle her poison?
I have had leftists from the United States and Canada tell me they would never think of reading the ideas of people like William Z. Foster, Tim Buck, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Henry Winston, Gus Hall or Victor Perlo but they will peddle the poison being published by Caitlin Johnstone under the guise of leftism.

The U.S. and Canadian left is being bombarded in the same way by writers associated with this outfit Syriza in Greece... which, not coincidentally, has formed an alliance with a bunch of outright fascist bastards. Well, why not read what the real left in Greece has to say about things? The Communist Party of Greece (KKE). They have a web site, too:
