Bernie and Hillary may be at opposite ends of the political spectrum, but they do have one thing in common: they both want you to take Donald Trump very seriously. As do a lot of voters claiming they’re terrified of Mr. Solid Gold Dumpster Fire. Hillary’s only chance requires distracting us from her record by reinforcing just how terrified we should be. She’s even conned Bernie into fearing The Orange One.
But we’ve heard this same refrain every SINGLE election. We get served regressive neoliberalism on a platter. We’re told this is as good as it’s going to get, lest we waste our vote on some Third Party out of absurdities like principle or conscience.
It’s gotten damn disturbing lately, though. Hillary Inc. is scared of losing the presidency a second time. And now they’ve got Wikileaks and an army of hackers exposing their corruption.
So what’s their strategy to counter her growing unpopularity with independent voters? Copy Bush, of course. They’ve adopted his whole “You’re either with us or against us!” bullying tactic to mask how shitty their candidate truly is.
