2024 Election Emergency with Waleed Shahid

President Joe Biden, the man entrusted with our defense against Trump’s MAGA fascism, is now enabling a genocide in Gaza. The situation looks bad from almost any angle. What does this mean for US progressives who prefer Biden to Trump on domestic policy, but find Biden’s current foreign policy unconscionable? Should we shut up about Palestine to shore up Biden’s popularity? Unacceptable. Is there a Democratic primary challenger who can overcome Biden? Way too late, apparently. So what is to be done? 

In this episode William talks with Waleed Shahid, a progressive Democratic strategist and former national spokesperson for Justice Democrats. They discuss the recent “Vote Ceasefire” campaign in New Hampshire, an upcoming “Vote Uncommitted” campaign in Michigan, and ask if there are any other strategies available to stop a genocide, while giving ourselves the best chance to defeat Trump in November.
