Shamelessly Mourning Hillary's Defeat

Shamelessly Mourning Hillary’s Defeat

by Stephen Lendman

Manipulated anti-Trump street protests continue, recruited participants paid to rally against his triumph.

The vast majority likely have little or no knowledge of Hillary’s deplorable public record, her criminality at least since the 1990s, enough to imprison ordinary people longterm.

Blind to reality, they’re mourning her defeat instead of cheering it - a testimony to today’s ignorant, out-of-touch populace, most people mindless of duopoly governance, policies of both wings of America’s one-party state grievously harming their rights, welfare and futures.

On November 14, USA Today ran a surreal story headlined “ ‘Tolerant’ educators exile Trump voters from campus,” saying Hillary’s loss shocked many, “multiplied in academe, where few people seem to know any Trump supporters - or, at least any…who’ll admit to it.”

The “shock…turn(ed) campuses into kindergarten(s).” University of Michigan Law School announced “post-election self care (with) food and play,” including “coloring sheets, play dough, positive card-making, Legos and bubbles with your fellow law students.”

Stanford University offered psychological counseling for students experiencing “uncertainty, anger, anxiety, and/or fear. The University of Pennsylvania offered safe space with puppies and coloring books.

Cornell students held a cry-in. Yale had a group scream. Therapy dogs were available on other campuses. Some professors postponed or cancelled exams and when term papers were due.

Not covered by USA Today, three Harvard University professors held a panel discussion, attracting a large turnout, titled Dark and Stormy: Reflections on the Election” - omitting from their presentations what’s most important to explain, what I stress repeatedly.

Democracy in America is pure fantasy. Voters have no say whatever. Elections are farcical when held. Deep state power brokers decide how the nation is run and by whom. 

Astonishingly surprising most pundits and media scoundrels, they chose Trump, rigged things so he’d win, wrote off Hillary as damaged goods, and viola. Love or hate him, he’ll succeed Obama when inaugurated in January.

Are college students today so uninformed, naive, childish and emotionally unstable, they can’t handle the triumph of one wing of duopoly governance over the other?

They don’t likely know how America’s system works because political science and government professors don’t explain it.

Treating war goddess, racketeer, perjurer Hillary’s loss like a 9/11 tragedy shows the profound ignorance of too many of today’s college youths.

Jefferson once said “(i)f a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
