Neocon Washington Post Endorses War Goddess/She Devil Hillary for President
by Stephen Lendman
WaPo editors and commentators endorsed her all along. Now it’s official - while continuing relentless war on Trump, matching NYT viciousness, at times exceeding it.
Calling him “bigoted, ignorant, deceitful, narcissistic, vengeful, petty, misogynistic, fiscally reckless, intellectually lazy, contemptuous of democracy, enamored of America’s enemies…uniquely unqualified to serve as president in experience and temperament,” WaPo said elect(ing) (him would threaten America’s) democratic system (sic).”
Sounds like they’re talking about neocons infesting Congress and Obama’s administration, supporting wealth, power and privilege exclusively, along with endless wars of aggression to eliminate all sovereign independent states.
In supporting Hillary, WaPo called her a “well-prepared candidate (with) the potential to be an excellent president of the United States…”
“(W)e endorse her without hesitation” - despite admitting “her genuine flaws, missteps and weaknesses,” reflected in scandalous revelations about her affairs throughout her public life.
“We are not blind to” this, said WaPo, including her penchant for secrecy, destroying emails after judicially ordered to release them, her pay-to-play shenanigans, her speechmaking along with husband Bill “on an unprecedented and unseemly scale.”
Harsh comments accompanying an endorsement - given to want her succeeding Obama, not Trump.
If successful, “she will attempt to govern an angrily divided nation, working with legislators who in many cases are determined to thwart her, while” Trump will justifiably claim “her victory is fraudulent.”
“What hope is there for progress in such an environment,” said WaPo. Her record as first lady, US senator and secretary of state was deplorable - supporting endless wars of aggression, Wall Street over Main Street, and police state laws undermining constitutional protections on the phony pretext of keeping us safer.
WaPo lied calling her “dogged, resilient, purposeful…smart…(and), and positioned to get something done,” while assuring a “more secure” world with her as president.
Her war crimes, racketeering, serial lying, and overall enormous harm she’s responsible for from the neoliberal 90s to stepping down as secretary of state to run for president were ignored - along with the unprecedented menace she’ll pose as Obama’s successor.
Her ascension to power will threaten humanity more than any other leader in world history - given her ability, and possible inclination, to wage nuclear war and kill us all.
