Fuck you, Dan. Shut up and get out of the way. You snarky, smug, self-absorbed centrist Hillary shitheels lost this election. You're why Donald Trump won far more than the tiny fraction of the electorate that voted Green.

@5- Idiots: WE GOT LESS TOTAL TURNOUT THAN IN THE LAST TWO ELECTIONS DESPITE OUR DEMOGRAPHIC SUPPOSEDLY GROWING IN SIZE BUT IT'S TOTALLY THE THIRD PARTY'S FAULT WE LOST!

@5- "It will, however, deal with the people in the "rust belt" who switched from Obama to Trump and those are the people we need to get voting Democratic again."

I'm sure there are a few individuals who did that, but the much larger numbers are those who didn't vote before who showed up for Trump and those who voted for Obama who didn't show up. Those are the voters we need to motivate.

Jill Stein voters are a tiny percentage of the votes Hillary Clinton did not get. More people in those states voted for Gary Johnson, more people in those states voted for Trump, and the biggest voting block of all simply didn't vote.

I say this as someone who voted for Clinton: Fuck you for blaming Jill Stein (or anyone) for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party not being able to motivate people. At this point anyone trying to blame the Greens and the left wing of the party for the centrists failing yet again really has got to shut the fuck up and move out of politics. You're bad at it.

Shouting at Trump voters is all well and good, but they're never gonna give a fuck. I'm sure they'll giggle their asses off if they get to hear Dan whining.

Now how are you going to motivate the 50% who did not vote at all? Obama didn't win because he got the deplorables on his side, he won because he got more people to show up in the Rust Belt, including and especially the Rust Belt cities.

@9- "Subjectivity has no place in academia,"

I'm fascinated by this assertion. I'm sure you've got some explanation for how literary criticism can be objective. Let's hear it!

@5- To be fair, Venkman was an embarrassment as an experimental scientist.

I just tried to submit Professor Charles Xavier of Professor Charles Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters but the damn hosting service hit a storage limit... Professor X is harboring illegal aliens! The world must know!

@1- "...has shown undertones of "we want our white privilege back...."

Yes, it has shown under (and over) tones of that. But there is also a very legitimate "we want decent jobs" aspect which the Democrats didn't address sufficiently, seeming to believe that the obvious crappiness of Donald Trump would win people to their side. Turns out that turn out was a huge issue, and inspiring working class people in all localities to believe there was some change coming from the Democrats would probably have won it. Bringing business as usual didn't help.
