8. Sorry. I meant that point in history

Not that the riot itself caused the split; it revealed it, and the resentment lasted a long time. Hell, as late as the 90s Primus had a song about "those damned blue collar tweakers" that still resonated pretty well on the left.

And more specifically, I do think there was some "Fuck them, they weren't there for us" on the cultural left when free trade was the new big thing in the 90s.

And yes, sorry. I catch flak here for pointing that split out, and I was defensive.
