In a week this total fraud of an election will be over, and among the great number of things they have in common, one of the two disaster candidates elected will be in full support of the Dakota Access Pipeline. We could have had Bernie Sanders. We could have had Jill Stein. But nope. The fossil fuel industry owns both the Democrat and Republican parties.
What’s so impressive is how many so-called progressives have convinced themselves that their center-Right neoliberal candidate shares their values and morality. Hillary supporters say Jill Stein is crazy, yet their reasons for supporting Hillary are all issues that Stein actually supports and Hillary actually doesn’t support. Are they just selectively sexist or what?
So once again we get conned into a rigged oligarchy that caters the illusion of choice, and once again the real work, the real Hope and Change rests on the front line communities; the rebels chaining themselves to bulldozers, building barricades, getting beaten by police and bitten by attack dogs.
