Seeing as how the results were about 51/49, I’d say this cartoon is grossly overstating what happened. Though I suppose I should be grateful the right wing nut jobs of the not so great state of Alabama give me a good reminder why I’m so glad to not live in the South. Lincoln was wrong. We should have let the South secede. The rest of us would have been better off today.
It’s more than just the right wing who live in a bubble. Supporters of centrist/right of center Democrats like Obama and the Clintons live in their own bubble. And just like the right wingers, they refuse to see it. It’s very frustrating to the rest of us.
Yes, Hillary is more emotionally stable than Trump. I have no argument with that assessment. But that’s not the point, is it? The point is that anyone who thinks that Hillary wouldn’t have been every bit as corrupt as Trump is deluded.
It won’t be long before the midterm primaries come up. We need to weed out bad candidates like Clinton and Trump at the primary stage so people can actually vote for a candidate they actually want to see elected without being bullied by the “lesser of two evils” crowd.
Which is worse, an emotionally unstable politician whose hysterics draw your attention to the corruption and wrong doing in the works, or an emotional stable politician who engages in corruption and wrong doing right under your nose while you’re not paying attention? You’re screwed regardless of which of the two poisons you chose to drink.
Hillary chose a conservative anti-union running mate, nominated industry lobbyists to the party’s platform committee. During her time as Sec of State, she helped establish offshore tax havens disguised as “free trade” agreements. She stated war monger Henry Kissinger was a friend and mentor and her own record as SoC was on track to be as bloody as his. As Senator, not only did she vote in favor of the so-called “Patriot Act,” which greatly increased the government’s authority to spy on citizens, she later voted to extend it. I could go on. It all adds up to a pretty safe prediction.
When you see a 2 ton safe suspended by a rope so frayed, only a couple of strands remain holding it up, you don’t say “There’s no proof it’s going to break free and crash.” No, you get the heck away from it as fast as you can to avoid getting hit. But as I said so many times before, people are more than happy to remain willfully blind to the corruption of the politicians they support while wagging their finger at the opposition doing the same thing.
Oh for…. It is a matter of public record that Obama nominated the very same Ajit Pai to the FCC who is now working to over turn net neutrality. Facts are facts. Look it up.
It still amazes me how centrist and right of center Democrats can so easily ignore the corruption of their supported candidates while calling out the opposition candidate for the exact same corruption.
Fun fact: Net neutrality was in jeopardy during the Obama Administration just as it is now. Verizon crony and net neutrality opponent Ajit Pai was nominated to the FCC by President Obama.
Which problems? We most likely would have had just as much swamp with Hillary as we did Trump, so problems like the threat of canceling net neutrality and the massive tax cuts for the wealthy were going to happen either way. Not to mention that Hillary is just a big a war monger as any man.
Off the top of my head, I’d say this is related to Trump’s many ties to white supremacy.
Seeing as how they can look their constituents straight in the eye and lie their assets off full well knowing that some people may very well die as a result of their actions, I’d say they’re more comparable to psychopathic murderous clowns.
