A True Left-Winger

Oct 11, 2012

In the current political season, does it seem like the terms “liberal,”  “left-wing,” and “socialist” have been getting a lot of exercise?

Has it left you wondering if those making such allegations know what a true “Leftist” is?

We ask a long time, unabashed, Virginia left-winger to give us his take.

Larry Yates -  Political activist.  Community organizer.  Author of the new book of fiction Bloodroot Cantons: An Alternative Story of Virginia and the Blue Ridge  (September, 2012) and of non-fiction The Scalawag Scholar’s Notes on Virginia(September, 2012).  More about Mr. Yates’ work and appearances available at Scalawagscholar.com as well as under the Facebook listing “Social Justice Connections.”
