When former first lady Barbara Bush passed away this week, people all over the country had nice things to say about her. To their credit, even the left wing Women’s March movement honored Mrs. Bush with a tweet. The socialist Seattle city council member Kshama Sawant criticized the tweet.
Here’s the Women’s March tweet:
Rest in peace and power, Barbara Bush. pic.twitter.com/GI8eIYd8A6

Here’s Sawant’s awful response:
This is terrible. @womensmarch organizers have helped lead historic protests since Trump's election but this tweet shows how, without a political compass, even well-meaning progressives can end up giving cover to ruling class & ultimately undermining struggles against oppression. pic.twitter.com/AS3jzE7l1Y
