Election Day Scoundrel Media Trump Bashing

Election Day Scoundrel Media Trump Bashing

by Stephen Lendman

Even on election day, they didn’t let up, the same malevolent anti-Trump drumbeat continuing while voters go to the polls.

This political season showed more than ever why voter rights and choices don’t matter, the two most widely reviled aspirants in US history competing for the nation’s highest office. 

A pox on them both - though I explained repeatedly about the extreme danger Hillary poses, a war goddess threatening humanity if she succeeds Obama.

This political season also proved why I call America’s dominant media “scoundrels,” sacrificing journalism the way it’s supposed to be for shameless advocacy - lopsided for Hillary over Trump, disgracefully promoting an emotionally unstable neocon lunatic for president, the nation’s curse, not choice.

Leading US broadsheets NYT and Washington Post hammered Trump relentlessly throughout months of campaigning - continuing their vitriol on election day.

The Times claimed “optimism from Hillary…and darkness from…Trump at campaign’s end,” quoting her saying “(l)et’s make history together” - failing to explain the pure evil she represents.

Trump “polarized” the country by “his personality and tactics,” said The Times, bashing him perhaps one last time before polls close Thursday evening - mocking his justifiable claim about the “crooked media…crooked Hillary…a corrupt Washington establishment, (and) a rigged, rigged (electoral) system.”

WaPo editors accused Republicans of “attempt(ing) to rig the vote by suppressing it” - ignoring how Hillary stole her party’s nomination by rigged primaries, a likely rigged Tuesday election in progress as this is written to anoint her Obama’s successor.

Trump didn’t incite “obstruction, intimidation and even violence at the polls” by justifiably warning about a rigged process for Hillary, perhaps the only way she can win, most voters calling her dishonest and untrustworthy.

WaPo editors: “It is critical to American democracy, and to the health of the two-party system, that one party’s efforts to gain electoral advantage by erecting obstacles to voting do not succeed.”

Fact: Duopoly power in America undermines democratic governance. None exists - not from inception, not now, not when election results are known, not without grassroots revolutionary action for change.

Electoral results will show dirty business as usual again won. Ordinary people lost. Hillary’s elevation to power puts humanity’s fate up for grabs because of the unprecedented danger she poses - Trump the safer of two deplorable choices.
