Jill Stein Was The Most Powerful Democrat in 2016

Jill Stein was the most powerful Democrat in 2016. It’s a true story – that is, if all those whiny Hillary fanbois and girls are to be believed.

People are overly fixated on Jill Stein voters right now. It may have something to do with the fact that Justice Kennedy just retired, which will allow the Chief Cheeto to appoint another conservative Supreme Court Justice, definitively banking the Court on a hard right turn and bringing about the dawn of the Republic of Gilead (that’s a Handmaid’s Tale reference for you illiterate folk out there).

So obviously, if Trump hadn’t won the 2016 election, we wouldn’t be staring down the barrel of the Supreme Court potentially erasing the last 70+ years of Constitutional jurisprudence. Of course, this assumes that Senator McConnell won’t extend the courtesy of holding a confirmation vote after midterm elections, just as he held up the Merrick Garland nomination until Trump was elected. I’m not sure why people assume he wouldn’t maintain civility….hold on, I’m now remembering that he already done told us he’s going to ram the nomination through.

So naturally, tolerant Hillary sycophants were in a tizzy all over Twitter and Facebook last night, yelling as loud as they could into the virtual void.

Examples:

Yikes. It’s true that if nobody voted for Jill Stein and instead voted for Hillary, it would have swung the election. Trump would not be President right now. But just as with a single bad flag in football that could have swung the outcome, there are a lot of other things that could have too.

People could contemplate the fact that oh, I don’t know. Hillary could have like, ran a campaign to win instead of running a hubris-fueled campaign to not lose. The DNC could have not fucked with their own primary in ways that pissed off a lot of Democratic voters. Perhaps nominating someone who’s the subject of a highly polarizing scandal – legitimate or not (it was a farcical kangaroo court/show trial) is not the best strategy to win an election. Perhaps Hillary could have had more than ZERO ground game in Michigan and actually tried to engage voters. Just some thoughts. That is to say, yes she would be a million times better than Trump as President. She should have been President. The point is that fixating a bunch of vitriol on the severely misguided Stein voters is a bit well…pointless.

Don’t even get me started on blaming all Bernie supporters for being ridiculous Bernie Bros or the 1% who went for Stein. The overwhelming majority of Bernie voters backed Hillary in the general election. There were a few nut jobs who were disproportionately vocal about switching to Stein. And if all the Bernie lovers just stayed home, Hillary would have had 20+% of the vote. So get out of here with that garbage.

Isn’t this 2018? And fools are still relitigating the 2016 election? Meanwhile, traditional, stodgy Democratic Party stalwarts are bemoaning the fact that highly progressive candidates in both New York and Nebraska won their Congressional primary, as if they expected all the progressive energy generated by Bernie two years ago would simply go away. As if real, working class people wouldn’t love universal health care, a living wage, greater equality, and a host of other things that would drastically improve their lives.

Anyway, Jill Stein was clearly the most powerful Democrat in 2016 by Democrats’ own twitter admissions. Sad!

Say, what’s Robert Mueller up to these days, anyway?

Classic Georgia: GOP Candidate for Governor has a Deportation Bus

Michael Williams is a terrible candidate for Governor in Georgia. I just learned his name today and first double checked whether this was Omar from The Wire (Michael K. Williams) before I slammed him (Not Omar). So, how do I know Mr. Williams is an awful candidate for Governor when I did not even know who he was?

Because just days before his election he is dropping the Political Stunt of the Year on the people of Georgia: A Deportation Bus.

Williams, one of five Republicans vying for the GOP nomination in Georgia’s upcoming governor’s race, plans to drive his bus across the state on Wednesday and Thursday, according to his campaign. The bus tour comes just days ahead of the state primary next week.

Yup, that is not the kind of move a Winner pulls. You know who also hates immigrants, is racist towards them, but, did not drive around a mobile-wall? I think you can figure that one out yourself. Even HE was able to realize that a gimmick like this would just make you look bad.

To showcase his ignorance, Williams had the following painted on the back: “Danger! Murderers, rapists, kidnappers, child molestors, and other criminals on board.” How in 2018 when we have so much information available to us do people still think that this is remotely true and not just a revealing of your personal inner-demons?

Congrats on the losing, Michael. No one gave enough of a damn about your message, so you went All-In with your short little chip stack and you’re about to bust out. You exit the race with no dignity, but, a lot of racism.

PS. I wikipedia’d this guy since I had the time and learned one thing not related to this bout with racism. He had a bump stock giveaway after the Las Vegas shooting…and, he said, “Blaming guns or bump stocks for the actions of a lunatic, is the same as blaming McDonald’s for heart disease.”

Do you know who DOES blame McDonald’s for heart disease? McDonald’s! Pay attention a little more man, they’ve been on a health-kick for like half a decade now. Sure, it’s relative, but, they fully understand they are killing you.

So, basically, all said, Mr. Williams is a perfectly suitably GOP candidate.
