Bernie Betrays His Backers

Standard

Today Bernie threw his support to Clinton, and withdrew his support from his backers, berning them badly.

Today Bernie Sanders betrayed his backers, all those millions of Americans who contributed small sums of money to produce his unprecedented political war chest of $220 million. He betrayed all those millions of Americans who believed him when he said that he was a socialist. He betrayed all those millions of Americans who are fed up with neo-conservatism and neo-liberalism.

Hillary Clinton is both a dangerous neo-conservative and a dangerous neo-liberal.  Her super hawkish actions and positions as Secretary of State on Syria, Libya, Honduras, Ukraine show her to be a dogmatic neo-con, and the candidate most likely to plunge us into World War III, more likely so than her Republican opponent, Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton is also an enemy of the people, being a neo-liberal who supports the anti-democratic and anti-social policies of privatization, fiscal austerity, deregulation, so-called “free trade”, the financialization of the economy (which led to the financial crisis of 2007-2008), and reductions in government spending in order to enhance the role of the private sector in the economy. A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for the 1%.  Don’t vote for Hillory. Pillory Hillary instead.  That’s what she deserves.

Shame on Bernie for betraying his backers, for energizing a movement, and then leaving that movement in the lurch.

I’m voting for Jill Stein of the Green Party in November.

I’m not ever again going to waste my vote for either wing of the Republicrat Party, that duopoly of corporate-backed political hacks who have been leading the USA to ruin for a long, long time.
