The academic left will keep making this same dumb argument for the next four to eight years.

UCLA Institute: ‘Trumpism Consolidates Power Through White Supremacy’

An institute at the University of California Los Angeles argues that “Trumpism consolidates power through white supremacy, misogyny, nationalism, xenophobia, corporatism, and militarism” and performs research and activism to advance “radical democracy.”

UCLA’s Institute on Inequality and Democracy operates out of the university’s school of public affairs. It is dedicated to “abolitionism”and wants to use urban planning to combat the “systematic oppressions expanded and institutionalized by the new administration.”

The Institute’s “Abolitionist Planning for Resistance” pamphlet outlines a four-part mission for urban planners.

“Refuse to design, plan, or build systems that divide and oppress communities, including the proposed wall between the US and Mexico,” instructs UCLA. “Declare [your] spaces ‘sanctuaries’ to undocumented immigrants, while planning sanctuaries for all victims of injustice.”

“Commit to abolishing mass incarceration and the prison-industrial complex, while expanding ‘abolition’ to all systems that promote racial and social exclusion,” advises the Institute. “Reflect critically and historically on the political economy of planning to understand and resist our complicity in systems of racial capitalism and patriarchy.”
