If You Thought by Voting for the "Lesser Evil"

If You Thought By Voting for the "Lesser Evil"

By Dennis Loo (7/16/16)

If you're like most people, you believe that this system gives you the right to choose "the lesser evi" and that your vote for that, if joined by 50% of others who also voted your way, then you will indeed get the "lesser evil" and avoid the greater evil. 

I am going to share as an example of what you're going to get from Clinton and compare that to Trump:

Ex-CIA analyst George McGovern attended a February, 2011, talk given by Hillary Clinton in which she was extolling those in Egypt and Iran who were standing up against their governments' attempts to repress them. These were examples, she said, of people exercising their precious right to freely speak out and to assemble, a right that is honored in the US but not by dictators. As she was saying these very words, George McGovern, who is an elderly pacifist, stood up in the audience a few rows from where Clinton was speaking, turned his back to her and took off his outer garment, revealing underneath his white t-shirt that said "Veterans for Peace" with a dove in it. In response to this silent act and in full view of Clinton, who continued talking throughout McGovern's quiet protest, security officers rushed in and manhandled McGovern, bloodying him in the process of hustling him away while Clinton spoke of the virtues of American's honoring free speech, not missing a beat and acting as though nothing awry was going on. Here is a video and a description of the full event.

Surprise! Surprise! Sanders Endorses Clinton

Surprise! Surprise! Sanders Endorses Clinton

By Dennis Loo (7/13/16)

Newly added material as of 9 pm Pacific.

As I wrote back in November, 2015 in "On Elections in an Empire":

For sure Sanders is not going to be the Democratic nominee and for sure he is in the race objectively to draw the very disaffected into the illusion that they have a voice until the time comes when Sanders bows out gracefully and endorses Hillary. And then all of those or most of those who have been so energized by his candidacy will swallow the poison pill of "realism," and vote for Clinton, the "lesser evil." Never mind that the Democrat is not the lesser evil than the Republican, just the more reasonable and less reactionary sounding one, but no less an imperialist in their policies.

What did Sanders say today on GMA?

“No, it's not about the lesser of two evils,” Sanders said before listing a number of issues, including minimum wage, college affordability and health care, where he said his formal rival would help working families.

...

“I think what Secretary Clinton is going to have to do is get around the country and contrast her views to Donald Trump's,” Sanders said. “This is not a beauty contest between Trump and Hillary Clinton. This is the fact that the middle class* of this country is in trouble. Which candidate has more to say about education, more to say about health care, more to say about climate change … and the more the people hear the contrast between the two, I think Secretary Clinton's support will grow.”

What a shill!

Why Cops Keep Murdering Blacks

"3 Dallas Cops killed, 7 wounded. This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you."

- Tweet by talk show host and former Congressmen Joe Walsh, July 7, 2016. Since deleted by Twitter. 

Who exactly is this "Real America" Walsh is speaking of in his threat against black people?

First, to speak to his "Real America," I am going to excerpt from an article I wrote in October 11, 2013:
