Neocon Washington Post Calls War Goddess, Racketeer Hillary “Exceptional”
by Stephen Lendman
I’ve written much about I call America’s scoundrel media - especially for supporting privilege over populism, US imperial wars, and deplorable one-sided coverage of this year’s presidential election, sacrificing even-handedness for blatant partisanship.
With few exceptions, media scoundrels support the most recklessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history, acting as a collective press agent for what demands resounding opposition - waging a war of words on Trump, a daily pejorative blizzard, unparalleled in memory.
Given how viciously he’s attacked without letup, day in and day out, Hillary practically anointed pre-election, it seems all that’s left are postmortem comments. Independent historians one day will have final say - explaining the true measure of a woman belonging in prison, not high office.
Elevating her to White House leadership will show how much lower America’s political system has sunk than already. Of greatest concern is a she-devil craving greater US war on humanity than already, the risk of turning incremental global war into something much more serious and devastating, threatening life on earth.
Humanity’s future is up for grabs with her as America’s leader, things more perilous today than any previous time.
Neocon Washington Post editors support the leading menace of our time - ludicrously claiming Hillary “understands America’s place in the world,” not Trump.
He’s right agreeing with Putin, saying “(i)t is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation.”
“If you’re in Russia, you don’t want to hear that America is exceptional,” said Trump - nor anywhere else, he added. The notion is “very insulting to the world.”
Not according to neocon WaPo editors, saying his position “puts him at odds” with the entire GOP establishment. Most ordinary Americans disagree.
One nation claiming superiority over all others is a prescription for wanting its will forced on the world community, even at the risk of destroying it.
Hillary supports what she calls “a responsibility to lead,” color revolutions and naked aggression her favored strategies.
WaPo editors turned truth on its head, claiming, as president, she won’t “rush to dispatch US soldiers to Syria, or anywhere else” - quoting her Big Lie, saying:
“(W)e must only send our troops into harm’s way as a last resort, not a first choice. (W)e must be able to act decisively on our own when we need to.”
Fact: As me-first lady and US senator, she supported all US wars of aggression wholeheartedly.
Fact: As secretary of state, she waged political, economic and hot war against Libya and Syria, along with destabilizing and toppling foreign leaders. She supports Israel’s slow-motion genocide against millions of defenseless Palestinians.
She’s a known menace, her deplorable public record exposing her villainy. Trump has no political background. How he’d govern as president can only be gaged by his rhetoric and what’s known about his business dealings as they might apply to public service.
One thing’s virtually certain. It would take a giant leap of imagination to believe he’d be worse than Hillary.
With him in power, they’d be a chance for something better geopolitically - maybe saving the world from catastrophic nuclear war, reason enough to support him over her.
