Liberals for Hillary

Liberals for Hillary

by Stephen Lendman

Progressive politics and political pluralism aren’t Beltway attributes. America was never beautiful - now the greatest threat to world peace. Bipartisan neocons infesting Washington risk the unthinkable.

Many self-styled liberals support Clinton - the most recklessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history - a neocon war goddess/she devil representing pure evil, a war-profiteer’s dream, backed by Wall Street and other corporate predators.

Certain Sanders’ endorsement awaits to be announced, betraying his loyal supporters. Liberal progressive in name only Senator Elizabeth Warren backs her, saying “I’m ready to get in this fight and work my heart out for Hillary Clinton to become the next president of the United States and to make sure that Donald Trump never gets any place close to the White House.”

Noted academic, father of modern linguistics, political/anti-war activist Noam Chomsky said he’s against Trump, supported Sanders, intends voting for Clinton, adding, “I don’t think there’s any other rational choice” - a shocking statement by someone who knows better.

He understands money-controlled duopoly power runs America, a one-party state, both flip sides of the other, in lockstep on issues mattering most - notably war and peace, corporate empowerment and cracking down hard on nonbelievers.

Trump and Clinton differ more in style than substance, both representing dirty business as usual, offering voters no choice - a billionaire businessman wanting greater wealth and power v. a war goddess threatening world peace.

Supporting either endorses what demands rejection and condemnation, both recklessly dangerous, evidence of America’s deplorable state - a democratic free society in name only, lurching toward full-blown tyranny no matter who succeeds Obama.

Voters’ only “rational choice” is opposing both duopoly power candidates, supporting grassroots revolutionary change, unattainable electorally, possible only by taking to the streets, paying the price, enduring sacrifice, battling for justice, resisting tyranny because it’s the only thing to do.

Liberals for Clinton betray what they claim to support, more evidence of America’s deplorable state, too debauched to fix, its electorate largely uninformed and indifferent - why things deteriorated so badly in the first place.
