The hashtag “Too Far Left” trended on Twitter Saturday after former President Barack Obama warned Democrats not to veer too far in that direction.
The hashtag quickly rose to the number one spot on Twitter once former Hillary Clinton adviser Peter Daou tweeted his disapproval of Obama’s comments:
Leela Daou, the wife of Peter Daou, also tweeted her disagreement with the former president’s warnings:
I'm #TooFarLeft because I want black and brown children to grow and thrive and meet their fullest potential.
I'm #TooFarLeft because I want black and brown children to feel free to BE CHILDREN and not live with the burden of fear and oppression.
Saying "Americans are moderate than these wild leftists" is basically conceding that the far right propaganda machine has prevailed.
Because what the Too Far Left™ movement wants is fairness and equality. Health care, education, dignity for ALL people, not just oligarchs…
