Look. I voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary, and have the photographs to prove it. But let’s face reality here: A Jewish socialist would have faced the same set of challenges from the set of racist goobers, Faux News propagandized sheep, voter lists scrubbed of brown people, and FBI and KGB black ops that Hillary Clinton faced. Do you *really* think that any of these people who voted for Trump would have voted for a Jewish socialist, a kike, rather than for an orange dude promising to “Make America Great Again” (like the 1950’s, when white people were people and brown people were servants or dead bodies if they got too uppity)? Do you *really* think that somehow Bernie could have put the brown people back on voter lists who were scrubbed off the lists by the racist Trump supporting politicians? It doesn’t matter that Bernie didn’t have the decades of baggage of Hillary Clinton. He’s a Jew. And to the sorts of people who think that George Soros is leading a Jewish conspiracy against America, that means he’s just another part of the conspiracy against real Americans, white Americans, Christian Americans.
And I’m absolutely certain that the FBI could have fabricated some bullshit that would have cost him the race in the end, like they did with Hillary. Because that’s how coups work. They work for someone, not against someone. The FBI wanted Donald Trump to be President, so if there had been no scandal they would have created one. All it takes is innuendo and broad brush statements, after all.
Nope. The basic problem is that there’s a majority of white Americans that are, as Hillary put it, “a basket of deplorables”. And they would not have voted for a Jewish socialist any more than they voted for Hillary. Once the voter lists were scrubbed and the propagandized mobilized, it was a done deal in all but name. Which is why the polls were so goddamned bad — they were looking at voters who had voted in the previous election. Well, the brown people in the poll samples had often gotten scrubbed off the rolls in the meantime — and didn’t know it. The polls assumed a normal election. They didn’t assume the first Jim Crow election of the 21st century. And that, in the end, is what made all the difference.
The problem for the coup-makers is that maintaining power is going to require continued repression of brown people, continued repression of dissent, in the end it could even require tanks through the streets of Silicon Valley because the technology magnates, who are the only real generators of wealth left in America, are mad as hell because Trump promises to start a trade war that will devastate their fortunes. There is no way for a minority to maintain power over a majority without resorting to repression. And repression destroys the economies of countries because nobody wants to live and work in a repressive hellhole, the most talented are desired by every civilized nation and go elsewhere, anywhere, as fast as they can. Brain drain sucks repressive hellholes dry. If tanks start rolling through the streets of the Silicon Valley, it is the end of the United States as a 1st world nation.
That doesn’t mean we won’t see it, though. There are those who would prefer having power in a 3rd world nation, to being a wealthy member of a 1st world nation. Whether we just elected one of those people… we shall see. We shall see.
