Hello? Hello? Anybody out there?
An opposition party is supposed to be an opposition party. Not a “let’s all roll over and play Kumbaya” party.
All this Russia stuff? The Clinton campaign had it. When the election results came in, rather than contesting it and fighting it, she instead retreated into the woods in humiliating defeat and leaving us with a con man as president. Why?
My guess: Democrats are playing as if the traditional rules of the post-WW2 era still apply and Donald Trump is just an ordinary candidate rather than a Manchurian candidate who stands a real chance of setting back democracy for decades, if not forever, in the United States. This isn’t just on Hillary’s back, this seems to be almost the entire Democratic Party with a few exceptions. Kamala Harris has been quite vocal on all this, as have Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Every other major Democratic Party figure? [crickets]. My guess is that Hillary talked to a lot of Democratic insiders, found that they had about as much spine as a jellyfish, and said “Fuck them, they deserve Trump” and headed for the woods.
Yeah, if I found out that my so-called “supporters” had no backbone or stomach for fighting, I think I would have said “fuck it” and headed for the woods too.
