4. So expecting representatives in one's own country...

...to look after workers in one's own country, is favoring SOME workers (i.e. citizens of one's own country) over OTHER workers (i.e. residents of other countries)?

Meanwhile the corporations continue to outsource labor to the very cheapest they can find, countries without labor laws, without environmental protections, with horrible human rights records... but that isn't reactionary, that isn't favoring some (the 1%) over others (the 99%)?

Come on. This is standard class war propaganda -- that any time workers stand up for their own rights, they are trampling the rights of other workers. All while the corporations trample over all workers' rights.
