Oh wait. You're serious?
Let me laugh even harder!
I can understand and appreciate the screwed up election and how Trump won even though she has now > 2million votes more than him. However she conceded the election.
In the end you just make people question the election process, and make people doubt it. I don't know what to say other than you are doing a lot of harm with your actions.
P.S. I have no problem walking away from Pro-Clinton pay Cable Channels; it saves me money when I don't have to hear about how she could have / should have won.
"R-recount now! The election was rigged! #imstillwithher."
Watching the left tear itself apart for the next four years is going to be glorious.
Her recount efforts are a day late and a billion dollars short.
Thanks to Stein, Johnson, the Bernie Bros and the other Alt Left Useful Idiots who swallowed Russian propaganda we're plunging off a cliff into the inevitable Trump Great Depression Worldwide Financial Crash.
Among other horrors of the Trump era, including destabilizing Eastern Europe.
So this clown also says that socialism is more logical. Really? That must explain the over 150 million people who were murdered or oppressed by it alone in the last century. Give me a break and stop trying to force this nonsense on me.
It's Gary's fault; it's Stein's fault... don't forget the FBI Director before he released that memo she was going to win she thought.
Never accept responsibility of the failure; this is the new norm. Be afraid be very afraid.
good! If there's tampering, rigging, etc. in the election process, shouldn't we know about this? Shouldn't we *want* to know? After living through 18+ months of campaign fuckery, we can't take a few more weeks to make sure we got it right?
As for the "harm" being done ... what? some people might find out that their votes were NOT counted? or that mysterious blocks of votes appeared out of nowhere (*cough* Russia)? And if it's the cost you're objecting to, well, that's about that same as 60 hours of guarding Trump et al in NYC, so who's the bigger drain on democracy?
The broken logic that she still supports creating a national third party free from the corporate influences inside the Democratic and Republican parties? Do you really believe that she wouldn't be out organizing against Hillary Clinton and the neoliberal Democratic establishment with the same vigor should Clinton have won instead of Trump? Unless you believe that the last three years of her aggressive organizing, protesting, and legislating against neoliberal Democrats doesn't count for some silly and philosophically abstract reason, you have no logical support for your position.
On another note, all I want for Christmas is a Jill Stein recount to hand the election to Clinton so those low-information, politically invested once-every-four-years, paternalistic, privileged, empire-loving Democrats can shut the fuck up forever about third party candidates.
But this time Charles is 100% right! We had a chance to stop trump at the ballot box and campaigning against Clinton was campaign for trump. If CM Sawant wants to save her political career she should apologize and admit she was wrong, otherwise this is going to be her iraq war. Also CM Sawant should bear responsibility for any fallout or retaliation Seattle gets from the federal government for staying a sanctuary city. Once the election was Trump vs Clinton CM Sawant had a responsibility to do what was best for this city and campaigning against Clinton hurt this city.
Keep the pressure on Charles!
While the restructuring of the Dems to allow those who actually fight for people to have power maybe the only good hing to come of this election, it comes a huge cost mostly. Sanders and Warren were smart enough to realize this which is why they supported Clinton.
You haven't came outright and said it, but its completely possible this is how CM Sawant and the SA wanted things to happen and are fine with the pain that will be felt by women and minorities in order for them to have a power grab.
Or we could suck Trumps gilded balls while fantasizing about white nationalism and the return of a post WW2 manufacturing economy.
Kshama Sawant and Socialist Alternative are genuine socialists.
They are completely consistent in their militant opposition to the capitalists, their Republican and Democrat parties, their Trump and Clinton creatures.
Whereas Mr. Mudede simply makes a fool of himself, groveling on all fours before the beaten generals of the Democrat Party leadership.
We will keep doing our best to help our class realize its mighty power.
By participating in all their struggles.
Including the anti-Trump protests.
And winning the leadership as and when we can.
We strive to create a federation-type of mass party of the 99%; against the Republican and Democrat parties; hopefully including Socialist Alternative, the Green Party, Black Lives Matter, 15Now, NODAPL, Socialist Students, all other genuinely progressive forces, and above all the huge numbers of young people, workers and students moving into struggle.
We would all work out and agree upon a common minimum programme, but beyond that each constituent group would be free to run their own campaigns and to criticise each other.
In the struggle of ideas, the best ideas will win.
There is no time to waste!
The vile sexist, racist, anti-worker agenda of the bosses and their Trump is a dagger aimed at all our hearts.
We must build a mass movement of the multi-millions to take them on — and, in battle after battle, defeat them all!
Struggle, Solidarity, Socialism!
I asked people over and over, Jill Stein too at a march, what happens when Trump is elected and not a single one would or could answer it. It’s as if they never thought that through. They’re either working for the forces of evil or they’re just stoopid. But now *I* have to live with the mess created by their lily white privileged asses. I can’t tell you how angry I am at Jill Stein and every idiot who supported her, and Gary Johnson is EVEN WORSE. He’s a know-nothing. Stein doesn’t know much but at least she tried to pretend; anything for the camera.
I attended a couple of anti-trump marches after the debacle but it dawned on me, half of these a-holes didn’t bother to vote and if they did, they wasted it on Jill Stein all the while trashing Hillary to anybody who’d listen for the past year, and I left and went home. They can march on their own. We are effed, and Hillary haters now have to live with it. Problem is, so do the rest of us. They can post all they want about all it’s Hillary’s fault but those won’t assuage their guilt.
I largely agree with Mudede here but I disagree with him that she’s a neoliberal and that she’s not a progressive. If you read and listened carefully to her plans and proposals and not to her hateful critics, you’d know that Hillary, while being hawkish, is way more progressive than people realized. For anyone who similarly wasted their vote, thanks for ruining my holidays, my meditation, and our future.
