Have you been crying tears of shame because you are an entitled Millennial and your carefully chosen chromosome didn’t get to be the next President of the United States?
Have you been in therapy for some time now and all of a sudden upon hearing the News, you decided to stop taking your medications and run out to let your freak out in the streets?
Have you been depressed because your vajay candidate lost?
Have you been feeling at a loss for words and roaming the streets doing drugs and demonstrating since election night because crooked Hillary is gonna go to the Big House instead of the White House?
Do you blame your Facebook addiction for preventing you to go our and vote?
Have you been breaking shit lately, during the Kristalnacht America, and have you been shooting people in the streets?
Have you been attacking people on Social Media?
Have you been manufacturing stories for public consumption of fear?
Have you been defending Hillary against all odds?
Have you come to terms with the five stages of Grief yet?
Have you recognized that it’s You and the other Crooked Hillary Clinton’s supporters among the media and the elite that screwed your Queen?
Have you come to terms that you didn’t help the democratic ticket much either?
Have you made thew realization that you need to blame all others but yourself in order to escape the inevitable conclusion that you and your incessant establishment Media consumption is your downfall?
Have you realized that this Plantation driver system is alive and well in today’s Democratic party establishment and you need to put the photo copy of your favorite analyst’s cake hole, and of your entertainer’s gnarly mouth, next to your face in the mirror of doom, gloom, & blame, and start crying me a River…. for your complicity in the stupidity of vagina politics, and of the illusion of a female Madame Prez — when her only purpose was to mask your sad state of Slavery.
Have you understood that you are a Slave to your Plantation drivers?
Here is the evidence:
As far as I am concerned, it always struck me as strange that such an unpopular corrupt and crooked candidate like Hillary Clinton could have enjoyed such robust and unanimous endorsements from the editorial and opinion pages of the nation’s papers, TV networks, and all around smart pundits — but it was the very quantity of the media’s gushing enthusiasm for her Vajay Madame Prez entitlement — that really harmed the Democratic party more than anything else.
So now that they are solidly trounced and running away in defeat trying hard to cover their naked ass — let’s hit them over the head with this simple truth: You are the Guardians of the Free and Open Society — next time around, JUST DO YOUR FUCKING JOB and remember the Great Journalists like Ed Murrow and Bob Woodward, and don’t think that you are a PR hack or a melody maker for power, but rather the persons that are supposed to tell Truth to Power, at any turn and at any cost.
Otherwise Good Night and Good Luck.
You are a fucking Journalist, so start acting like it.
Stop being a shill for Crooked Hillary and Podesta, and their other crooked bastards, when they are coming around at the wheel of power and you start thumping your lips, atnd averting your eyes from the face of her Corruption, her Scandals, and her criminality, that make the Sicilian Mafia look like choir boys. Because even the Sicilians have a Code of Honor same as the choir boys of my church — but the Hillary Democrats have none. That’s plantation politics and vagina privilege for you. Is that what you support?
So, stop wanting to sway the voters with the same silly arguments about Matriarchy, repeated over and over again, two or three times a minute, all day long, with all the dissent, all the nuances and all the contrary views and opinions — deleted.
The very act of opening the newspaper under Hillary’s regime of Dowager Queen n waiting, started to feel like tuning in to a Cold War propaganda station, or reading the Pravda nailed on the public paper boards, in the Red Square of the Kremlin in Moscow.
Here’s what kind of gems, the daily papers like the New York Times claimed in big bold lies written large in their daily edition throughout the paper: 1) Hillary was virtually without flaws. She was a peerless leader clad in saintly white, a super-lawyer, a caring benefactor of women and children, a warrior for social justice. 2) Her scandals weren’t real. 3) The economy was doing well / America was already great. 4) Working-class people weren’t supporting Trump. 5) And if they were, it was only because they were botched humans. 6) Racism was the only conceivable reason for lining up with the Republican candidate, and all other kinds of such dribble and groveling Plantation Political Reporting from the drivers of the slaves trying to justify why we need to be slaves for ever to them, and we should be happy about it.
The New York Times gave us an enlightened Democratic slave owner from the South very much like Andrew Jackson the Democratic Party President who lynched more people than any other slave plantation owner of his time. And he went to be President under the same doctrine as Hillary Clinton did. With one difference — Andrew Jackson actually gat to occupy the oval office of the White House and crooked Hillary Clinton didn’t get there, because today the American people abhor Plantation Politics for the simple reason that WE ARE NOT SLAVES ANYMORE.
So how did the whole society of journalists organized crusade to prop up Hillary Clinton failed so miserably?
The fourth estate came together in an unprecedented professional consensus. They chose insulting the other side over trying to understand what motivated them. They transformed opinion writing into a vehicle for high moral boasting. What could possibly have gone wrong with such an approach?
“Put this question in slightly more general terms and you are confronting the single great mystery of 2016. The American white-collar class just spent the year rallying around a super-competent professional (who really wasn’t all that competent) and either insulting or silencing everyone who didn’t accept their assessment. And then they lost. Maybe it’s time to consider whether there’s something about shrill self-righteousness, shouted from a position of high social status, that turns people away.
“The even larger problem is that there is a kind of chronic complacency that has been rotting American liberalism for years, a hubris that tells Democrats they need do nothing different, they need deliver nothing really to anyone – except their friends on the Google jet and those nice people at Goldman. The rest of us are treated as though we have nowhere else to go and no role to play except to vote enthusiastically on the grounds that these Democrats are the “last thing standing” between us and the end of the world. It is a liberalism of the rich, it has failed the middle class, and now it has failed on its own terms of electability.”
This is not going to be easy to say or read, but there is still hope for you..
We want to give you hope you irredeemable Libtards out there. We also see the regular Crooked Hillary Cuckolds as redeemable too. Even those of you that promised to leave and go to Canada with the Mountie Express — we forgive you. Stay a little longer but better start behaving yourselves. No need to get up and move to the frozen wastes of Canada. Sucks, Cucks, Subs, Noms, Trannies, Confused, and 69 variations of Sadomasochists and gender undecided, along with the Hillary FemDoms and vajay dwellers — You are welcome to stay too. If only because the nice Canadians do not want you, and we don’t want to waste money on your sorry ass, having to ship you up North, and then having to transport you back…
Am sure you understand. So stay, but behave. Don’t confuse the children with your weirdness, and don’t lay hands upon the minors — lest you are sent directly to ISIS in Iraq to explain yourselves according to Sharia and the Koran. Am sure you’ll make plenty of friends there too…
So let me lay down the Law for you Staying here:
First the bad but sobering news: The GOP now controls the White House, both houses of Congress, the Supreme Court, all appointments to the rest of the federal judiciary, the vast majority of governorships, and the vast majority of state houses.
In addition to President Trump and Vice President Pence (say it slowly to let it really sink in), the GOP has total control of the House and Senate.
Going into 2018, we have to fight a gerrymandered House and defend 25 Senate seats, while the GOP is only defending 8. Of these Democratic Senate seats, 5 are in states that the Republicans have won consistently (IN, MO, MT, ND, and WV) and only one GOP seat is in a state where Democrats have been competitive (NV). Absent a major change, the range of potential outcomes for 2019-21 is likely to be a GOP House and Senate with the GOP in control of 51 to 57 Senate seats.
The Republicans will soon have a 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court, with Ginsburg (83), Kennedy (80), and Breyer (78) as the oldest three justices (Thomas is next, but he is only 68). And they control all federal judicial appointments.
There are 34/35 GOP governors (counting Alaska and depending on NC), up from 32 before Tuesday. And 71 of 99 state houses are now controlled by the Republicans (up from 68).
Think about that: in addition to controlling all three branches of the federal government, the GOP now controls 70% of all state legislative chambers and executive offices (and, thereby, the vast majority of all state courts, too)!
It’s going to be very, very hard to change the overall direction of this any time soon.
As a result, those things that we hold most dear and precious (mainly our families, friends, and values) are at risk. The type of country that we have helped to build is at risk. When we all said that this might be the most important election of our lifetimes, we were not kidding; we just didn’t realize how right we were.
As a result, I’m grieving. I’m grieving for our world, our country, our families, and our friends.
But it is true that it is always darkest before the dawn. And, notwithstanding Tuesday’s results, we are winning the hearts and minds of the future of the country.
So, a little hope and a call to action:
As I noted before, this was NOT a repudiation of Obama. Nor was it a vote FOR Trump.
In fact, we saw the same phenomenon before (1994, 2010, 2014): the true silent majority failed to show up at the polls. Clinton received 6.9M fewer votes than Obama did in 2012 (which, itself was down 3.6M from his 2008 total). Think about that: Clinton received 10.4 million fewer votes (rounding) than did Obama in 2008.
The message is simple, when our voters don’t show up, we lose (and we lose BIG TIME). When our voters do show up, we win.
As a practical person, I don’t see much hope before 2020. However, that does not mean that I am giving up hope.
We must continue the fight and start digging out of this hole with big wins in 2018 at the state and local level (less hope at the national level given the make up of the Senate and gerrymandering of the House, but we still have to fight tooth and nail for those seats, too). Otherwise, we will have little hope for 2020.
Fear and anger are powerful tools (just look to the GOP’s approach from Nixon’s Southern Strategy through Tuesday’s election). But we can win if we have the right message and messengers, and we work our hearts out.
So, here’s the positive bit of news: demographics. Millennials (1985-2004) constitute the largest population cohort in our nation’s history (86.0 million!!! vs. 78.0M for the baby boomers (1945-64) and 69.5M for Gen X (1965-84)). Plus, over this period, 40M+ Hispanic immigrants. We are winning these demographic groups. If we can hold on (a big if, by the way; don’t take anything for granted) and have the right message, we can win and right this ship.
In the meantime, we cannot let the GOP steamroll us and our values. We need to do everything we can to fight the deluge that is coming.
Protest, argue,write, lobby, investigate (yes, please investigate and encourage the press to do it’s job).
Do whatever you can, but don’t give up!
Frankly, we have no other choice.
Now for the Good News:
In the afternoon the Captain of the ship wants to go waterskiing. So prepare to pull on the oars extra hard.
month ago I tried to write a column proposing mean nicknames for president-elect Donald Trump, on the basis that it would be funny to turn the tables on him for the cruel diminutives he applied to others.
I couldn’t pull it off. There is a darkness about Trump that negates that sort of humor: a folly so bewildering, an incompetence so profound that no insult could plumb its depths.
He has run one of the lousiest presidential campaigns ever. In saying so I am not referring to his much-criticized business practices or his vulgar remarks about women. I mean this in a purely technical sense: this man fractured his own party. His convention was a fiasco. He had no ground game to speak of. The list of celebrities and pundits and surrogates taking his side on the campaign trail was extremely short. He needlessly offended countless groups of people: women, Hispanics, Muslims, disabled people, mothers of crying babies, the Bush family, and George Will-style conservatives, among others. He even lost Glenn Beck, for pete’s sake.
And now he is going to be president of the United States. The woman we were constantly assured was the best-qualified candidate of all time has lost to the least qualified candidate of all time. Everyone who was anyone rallied around her, and it didn’t make any difference. The man too incompetent to insult is now going to sit in the Oval Office, whence he will hand down his beauty-contest verdicts on the grandees and sages of the old order.
Maybe there is a bright side to a Trump victory. After all, there was a reason that tens of millions of good people voted for him yesterday, and maybe he will live up to their high regard for him. He has pledged to “drain the swamp” of DC corruption, and maybe he will sincerely tackle that task. He has promised to renegotiate Nafta, and maybe that, too, will finally come to pass. Maybe he’ll win so much for us (as he once predicted in a campaign speech) that we’ll get sick of winning.
But let’s not deceive ourselves. We aren’t going to win anything. What happened on Tuesday is a disaster, both for liberalism and for the world. As President Trump goes about settling scores with his former rivals, picking fights with other countries, and unleashing his special deportation police on this group and that, we will all soon have cause to regret his ascension to the presidential throne.
What we need to focus on now is the obvious question: what the hell went wrong? What species of cluelessness guided our Democratic leaders as they went about losing what they told us was the most important election of our lifetimes?
Start at the top. Why, oh why, did it have to be Hillary Clinton? Yes, she has an impressive resume; yes, she worked hard on the campaign trail. But she was exactly the wrong candidate for this angry, populist moment. An insider when the country was screaming for an outsider. A technocrat who offered fine-tuning when the country wanted to take a sledgehammer to the machine.
Listen to President Elect Donald Trump’s victory speech in full, and tell me that you disagree with him.
But listen without scratching your itch…
No matter how painful it might be to stay still without anything up your butt. And I mean without your head up your asscrack — no matter where your mind might be going to. You should get your brain out of the sewer…
Anyway that’s a start.
Crooked Hillary was the Democratic candidate because it was her Vagina privilege and her turn, and her inalienable RIGHT, to become the Madame Prez. And also she thought it was her turn at the controls after Billy goat did such a bang up job and Obama followed through with his bag of weed.
Now we all know how that worked out but because a Clinton victory would have moved every Democrat in Washington up a notch, and the level of Corruption would have been unbearable — the American people said Basta Motherfuckers.
Now tip followers and supporters like you — whether or not she would win was always a secondary matter, because it was something that was always taken for granted. White menopausal Woman privilege, and Vagine Corruption Politics brought it all together. Podesta and Brazile and all their ilk had the idea that winning been the party’s number one concern, and corruption, election rigging, and even a scorched Earth Political campaign was an acceptable driver to Victory and Glory.
How deluded you all were.
On the path of Hillary’s glory — several more suitable candidates who were better suited, people with less scandal and less corruption baggage, and eager and ready to go — were sacrificed at her altar…
There were of course the good ones that were scared off by Hillary’s lap dogs and her pitbulls like Podesta and his killing Mafia Company of Hillary loyal executioners.
Then we had amenable and simple people like Joe Biden, who had a good human touch with his powerful plainspoken style.
And then there was Bernie Sanders. Grandpa Doofus Bernie, an adorable, inspiring, lovely man with a largely scandal-free life and a Santa Claus come Einstein figure that energized the youth.
Each one of them could probably have beaten Trump. And even the thousand of other qualified and potential candidates like Your truly, who could have had a good shot at winning but were scythed down by Hillary’s cronyists and her crooked entourage.
But the thing is that neither of the two top candidates Bernie and Joe, nor the legion of other capable and suitable potential Leaders of the Democratic party, would have ever really cared to serve the interests of the corrupt party insiders — instead of the interests of the American people.
So now in the words of the unimitable babe Ruth: “Suck it up Losers”
And so the very Democratic leaders who are now crying crocodilians tears and are inciting young people to violence. made Hillary their candidate even though they knew about her closeness to the banks, her fondness for war, and her unique vulnerability on the trade issue – each of which Trump exploited to the fullest. They chose Hillary even though they knew about her private email server. They chose her even though some of those who studied the Clinton Foundation suspected it was a sketchy proposition.
To try to put over such a nominee while screaming that the Republican is a rightwing monster is to court disbelief. If Trump is a fascist, as liberals often said, Democrats should have put in their strongest player to stop him, not a party hack they’d chosen because it was her turn. Choosing her indicated either that Democrats didn’t mean what they said about Trump’s riskiness, that their opportunism took precedence over the country’s well-being, or maybe both.
Clinton’s supporters among the media didn’t help much, either. It always struck me as strange that such an unpopular candidate enjoyed such robust and unanimous endorsements from the editorial and opinion pages of the nation’s papers, but it was the quality of the media’s enthusiasm that really harmed her. With the same arguments repeated over and over, two or three times a day, with nuance and contrary views all deleted, the act of opening the newspaper started to feel like tuning in to a Cold War propaganda station. Here’s what it consisted of:
Hillary was virtually without flaws. She was a peerless leader clad in saintly white, a super-lawyer, a caring benefactor of women and children, a warrior for social justice.
Her scandals weren’t real.
The economy was doing well / America was already great.
Working-class people weren’t supporting Trump.
And if they were, it was only because they were botched humans. Racism was the only conceivable reason for lining up with the Republican candidate.
How did the journalists’ crusade fail? The fourth estate came together in an unprecedented professional consensus. They chose insulting the other side over trying to understand what motivated them. They transformed opinion writing into a vehicle for high moral boasting. What could possibly have gone wrong with such an approach?
Put this question in slightly more general terms and you are confronting the single great mystery of 2016. The American white-collar class just spent the year rallying around a super-competent professional (who really wasn’t all that competent) and either insulting or silencing everyone who didn’t accept their assessment. And then they lost. Maybe it’s time to consider whether there’s something about shrill self-righteousness, shouted from a position of high social status, that turns people away.
The even larger problem is that there is a kind of chronic complacency that has been rotting American liberalism for years, a hubris that tells Democrats they need do nothing different, they need deliver nothing really to anyone – except their friends on the Google jet and those nice people at Goldman. The rest of us are treated as though we have nowhere else to go and no role to play except to vote enthusiastically on the grounds that these Democrats are the “last thing standing” between us and the end of the world. It is a liberalism of the rich, it has failed the middle class, and now it has failed on its own terms of electability. Enough with these comfortable Democrats and their cozy Washington system. Enough with Clintonism and its prideful air of professional-class virtue. Enough!
Hillary Clinton’s Celebrity Feminism Was a dismal Failure. Vagina politics have been repudiated
Thank You Podesta…
Her campaign’s reliance on Hollywood endorsements reflected a deeper problem in the Democratic Party, because paying $62 Million US Dollars for Beyonce and her crack dealing husband Jay-Z to help her woo the people and get out the Black Vote was a turd move.
And Crooked Hillary’s superficial progressivism packaged as real social justice really really sucks.
So let me break the news to you, in case you haven’t received the Memo.
“Hillary Crooked Clinton” will not be our first woman president.”
Crooked Hillary will not occupy the White House but instead is heading for the Big House.
This is not a symbolic blow to Matriarchy or to Vagina politics if there is even such a thing.
And it is probably made more painful by the fact that Hillary lost to a raging misogynist and sexual predator. Donald Trump is now set to preside over a unified Republican government deeply antagonistic to abortion rights, marriage equality, and healthcare access. This will almost certainly be disastrous for women, but according to exit polls, 53 percent of white women voted for him anyway.
America’s Repudiation of Barack Obama
Shame on Us, the American Media
How the Terrible, Skewed, Anachronistic Electoral College Gave Us Trump
The “Deplorables” Got the Last Laugh
Republicans Have Pulled the Country and the World Into the Abyss
That’s a departure from pre-election polls, which showed her winning this demographic, but there long have been signs that white women wouldn’t flock to Clinton despite the historic nature of her candidacy. In May, The Atlantic’s Donald Brownstein argued that Trump needed white women to beat Clinton—and that he might very well win those votes:
Democrats haven’t done nearly as well among white women. In modern exit polling tracing back to 1972, the only Democrat to win more white women than his Republican opponent was Bill Clinton in 1996. Clinton in 1992 and Al Gore in 2000 also ran about even with white women. But since then, the GOP has carried white women by solid margins: 11 points in 2004, seven in 2008, and fully 14 for Mitt Romney against Obama in 2012.
Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” tape, the sexual assault and harassment allegations against him, and his selection of anti-abortion, anti-LGBT Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate all bothered college-educated white women, but not their working class peers. White women without college degrees—an educational status correlated to lower income—overwhelmingly supported Trump, enough so that he won white women as a category.
That did not have to happen. But the Democratic Party for years has packaged superficial progressivism as real social justice, and the Clinton campaign’s simpering celebrity feminism ultimately proved tone deaf to the vital women voters who were more concerned about their pocketbook than “grab them by the pussy.”
White working class voters aren’t necessarily committed Republicans. As New York magazine reported Wednesday, many had voted for Obama. And there’s evidence they still feel warmly about our sitting president, who has a national approval rating of 56 percent. That’s a startling contrast with Clinton’s approval rating, which dropped to 38 percent in August and hovered around 41 percent in late October. Trump’s approval ratings have been little better, but he still managed to turn out voters. Clinton, meanwhile, suffered from the enthusiasm gap many had warned about for months.
White working class women weren’t going to vote for Clinton just because Katy Perry and Lena Dunham were.
Clinton’s campaign strategy, especially when it came to appealing to white women, indicates that she and her staffers didn’t quite grasp these dynamics. Her campaign employed a candy-colored brand of female empowerment seemingly based on the assumption that white women’s political priorities are influenced by the pop culture they consume. White working-class women weren’t going to vote for Clinton just because Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, and Sheryl Sandberg were.
These celebrity overtures were out of step with the priorities and concerns of white working-class women. How can you “lean in,” as Sandberg implores working women to do, when it’ll cost you your minimum-wage job? And if you can’t afford HBO, how likely is it you even know who Lena Dunham is, much less care about her political opinions?
Yet Clinton’s campaign relied heavily on these endorsement gimmicks. It saturated its messaging with the same superficial celebrity feminism that anoints everyone from Taylor Swift to Madeline Albright as role models for would-be girl bosses. It assumed that this branding, and Clinton’s bid to make history, would be enough to attract the white women she needed to win. Not only did this tactic fail in that regard, but it alienated some queer women, women of color, and even millennials.
Breaking glass ceilings doesn’t feed families.
Clinton and her staffers should have anticipated this outcome. Breaking glass ceilings doesn’t feed families. Progressive policies will. Though Clinton’s platform was inarguably more progressive than Trump’s, she failed to communicate those policies to the voters who needed to hear it most. Instead, she focused on girl-power anthems and cultivated wealthy celebrity surrogates who were incapable of addressing the grievances that fueled Trump’s campaign.
The Democratic National Committee shares some blame in this. The Podesta emails showed that the DNC is currently run by a tight-knit inner circle committed to the very incrementalism voters rejected Tuesday night. In an anti-establishment year, it promoted a progressivism defined by social liberalism and little else. It balked at adopting popular economic reforms, like a $15 minimum wage and free college tuition. It backed moderates like Katie McGinty. Meanwhile, the party’s historical base has moved on without it: Trump didn’t just split white women. He split union voters, too.
It’s possible that white working-class women wouldn’t have rallied to any Democrat this year. But Clinton’s campaign strategies didn’t help her, and couldn’t make up for the DNC’s decision to abandon progressive populism decades ago. An intact working-class base would have made the DNC less reliant on the whims of one fragment of the women’s vote—and they would have kept at least some of the white working-class women they lost to Trump. This political work must go on outside the election cycle, and it’s certainly not going to be accomplished with parody ads starring Lena Dunham.
This is a long but excellent (and very much worth reading) assessment of what this election meant for progressives and what progressives’ path should be going forward.
Well, after a grueling, inspiring 16-hour day running a voting precinct in Oakland, yesterday evening turned into a wild night and a dark day.
I have some crow to eat, and some to serve.
First, I was wrong. I expected a Clinton victory. On account of election fraud, establishment connections, and the simple demographic shifts over the last two decades that have given the Democrats a solid and growing edge in voting blocs nationwide, I figured that despite fielding a weakened, dishonest, and unpopular candidate, the Democrats would win.
Clinton did win the national vote, and she did win California easily. But our undemocratic electoral college is set to select Trump based on state delegation voting.
Second, I voiced a widely held suspicion that Trump and the Clintons had planned Trump’s run together. Trump’s entire campaign never seemed to have a serious strategy for winning. Well, if this suspicion is true, clearly Trump or the Clintons or someone else changed the terms of their agreement at some point, and for the sake of the current moment it doesn’t matter.
I was wrong about those things.
I am surprised Trump won. I didn’t expect it.
Warning: I know some of you are hurting and despondent, and don’t want to hear what I’m about to say. You don’t have to read on right now. I don’t want it to come across as an “I told you so.” It’s essential however that we understand what happened this year, why the Democrats lost a winnable election. We have to do better next time, and we have to stick together these four years to defend and advance crucial progressive issues. The media will try to get us to think that the Democrats lost because of staunch progressives, or that Hillary lost because she’s a woman. These aren’t the reasons, and I believe that it’s essential we understand this. Still, if you need to grieve, don’t read this now. Feel free to come back and consider later.
My ❤ to you in your journey, wherever you are.
And here’s how Vagina Politics supporters from the Libtard left wing of national socialism rearrange their coloring books and their crayons, with snowflakes melting all around in lubricated tears of shame and self remorse.
And these national socialist vajay boys and girls, have no shame and instead rearrange reality for themselves and expect the whole world to believe tham and start drinking their cool aid too.
So they go on and say things like this, and surprise surprise they send these pieces of drivel to me too:
Read the fvcktard drivel coming from the teary eyed doofus, who is supporting crooked vagina, and Weep:
“If you’re still with me, yes, I am surprised Trump won, but I’m not shocked and traumatized that the Clinton campaign lost, or that the Trump campaign won, as some are. Trump is awful and I expect he will be a very bad president; we will need to fight him on many things. But I don’t have amnesia. Shock and trauma are what took place for progressives in Philadelphia, watching nominally “liberal” political leaders kill off the most powerful liberal movement that has taken place inside the electoral system in my lifetime. We watched the most charismatic and progressive candidate for president in decades be threatened and silenced by these same “liberal” leaders.
If you were in Philadelphia, you know what I’m talking about.
Throughout the primary Clinton had every advantage a candidate could ever hope to get from a political party — thorough media bias, millions funneled to her campaign from party coffers, and superdelegates bestowing her campaign with a gaudy 400-delegate lead before a single vote was cast. A wikileak email even revealed that the order in which the states voted was tweaked to be optimal for Hillary.
Still, when she and Bernie arrived at the convention in July, remarkably, neither candidate had enough pledged delegates to claim the nomination. It was a contested convention, and the DNC had two candidates to choose from: One candidate with a 15-20 point lead on Trump in the polls and wild unprecedented grassroots enthusiasm; and another candidate in a virtual dead heat with Trump who had mere hundreds, sometimes only dozens, at her events.
During the convention the wikileaks coming out revealed all the ways the DNC had rigged the primary, suggesting Clinton was an even weaker candidate than was assumed. Nevertheless, the DNC chose to risk a Trump victory. They nominated Clinton, the less popular candidate, in order to preserve their connections with — and contributions from — Wall Street banks, fossil fuel and pharmaceutical corporations, the largest media corporations, and others.
And now they’ve let a strong thoroughbred Republican take the White House.
They lost a race that was eminently, obviously, clearly winnable.
A major part of Trump’s base — middle and working class people who are struggling and falling behind economically — would have voted for Bernie and given him a 10-15% edge.
Because of the constant and acceptable corruption, the DNC forced upon their party and the American people an establishment candidate in an anti-establishment year. They took a huge risk. Not only did it backfire for them as leaders of their party, it backfired for all Americans. We now have Donald Trump and not Bernie Sanders as president.
We need to learn from this. The leadership of the Democratic Party is too corrupt to be entrusted with this country and planet’s future.
Clinton didn’t lose because she is a woman — that was actually her biggest strength as a candidate and generated her only real deep energetic support. Were Clinton a man, she would have had even less core support and no emotionally resonant underlying issue to run on, and she would have lost badly.
The truth is that Clinton ran a weak campaign, as even her altar boy Obama confessed; and she did this in a year in which progressive issues are not even popular with people that actually wake up in the morning and vote.
Yet you would really think, that with all of her scientific election rigging, the DNC, the Dems, and crooked Hillary’s supporters, and her “Podesta mechanics” in the Electoral system switching voters along with the Soros electronic voting machines shifting votes to Hillary “automatically” he still could have and should have won. Her campaign in the end just didn’t inspire many people outside of a few demographic segments who saw something of their own life and struggle in Hillary. Others worked for her not out of inspiration but because they feared Trump.
Meanwhile, many progressive issues won around the country, and there’s a lot to build upon. We just can’t look to the Democratic Party for leadership.
Bernie Sanders would have won this election. Think about that when you’re analyzing the political state of this country right now.”
But of course even the Facebook addicts know that there is a world of REALITY out there that might just conflict with their own closely held beliefs that come out of the TV popular shows and the smoke in their weed stocked pipe full of medical marijuana.
I have on thing to say for all Millennials:
Go get some stones: Boys and girls.
Go occupy a job somewhere and ditch your marijuana addiction.
Get rid of your therapist and man up.
Move to middle American and experience how hard working people function and live in harmony with reality. They don’t need medical marijuana, yoga, meditation or even anti-depression medication to go to work EVERY day, to have a family and grow children EVERY day, and the make their reasoned contribution to Society EVERY day. These are the people that are truly Americans and you need to experience some of that.
By the way:
Moving to Middle America, does not include a geographic move. All it takes is just a change of perception, and it surely takes getting a job. A job that pays real money for honest labor. Not some paid Rioter money from Crooked Podesta’s CAP, and the myriad smaller drug dealers associations that hire “volunteers” to cause riots in the streets of Middle AMERICA.
GO OUT AND GET A REAL JOB. Small time drug dealing is not that….
And please keep in mind that Mental health is not medical marijuana.
Anyway — I have a long list of advise for Millennials but I suspect they might not take it kindly, because it is a rough Love kind of thing.
More reasonable voices might also tell them a few things too, like this smart woman opines heredown:
“The one good thing is that if Hillary had won, we’d be in a worse place. I know that sounds weird but consider this:
(1) A Hillary win would have reaffirmed to all Hillary Supporters that they backed the right horse.
(2) A Hillary win would have sent most people back to sleep again: ah, all is good, she can be trusted, I’m going to…yawn…trust her.
(3) A Hillary win would have legitimized corruption as people would say, “I don’t care if she did x, y and z…if she had to do that to win and save us from Trump, then I’m okay with that.”
The ultimate goal is to increase engagement by Americans to a non-stop, thrumming buzz of activity. Even a Bernie Presidency might have resulted in a repeat of Obama 08 behavior (Oh, Bernie’s elected, I can relax now) and he’d have been kicked out 4 years later to the tune of “Democratic Socialism” doesn’t work. In a very real way, this is a swift kick in the pants and that’s not supposed to be easy or feel good…it’s meant to shock us awake and set our veins afire with adrenalin that just won’t quit.
It’s entirely possible that we needed to “hit rock bottom” for real, before we’d have the communal will power to get truly involved and stay involved for the rest of our lives…”
