At Least We Had the Sixties Before the Neoliberals Wrecked Everything

Once the Clintons got into it, progressivism was over and it's going to be a long, long time before it returns.  The Clintons and Trump took America back to the Fifties with their McCarthyism and that period of time in America was a grey dead zone from start to finish because any time any intellectual reared his or her head, Washington went after it.

At least we had the Sixties, mates.

It gets better with those Clintons, tho.

On a phone call with a longtime friend a couple of days after the election, Hillary was much less accepting of her defeat. She put a fine point on the factors she believed cost her the presidency: the FBI (Comey), the KGB (the old name for Russia’s intelligence service), and the KKK (the support Trump got from white nationalists).

“I’m angry,” Hillary told her friend. And exhausted. After two brutal campaigns against Sanders and Trump, Hillary now had to explain the failure to friends in a seemingly endless round of phone calls. That was taking a toll on her already weary and grief-stricken soul. But mostly, she was mad— mad that she’d lost and that the country would have to endure a Trump presidency.

How about that for a total inability to differentiate reality from her fantasies since she didn't say a word about Goldman Sachs and that relationship vilified her but she had done it other ways as well (e.g. Libya).

The sickness and demonism of that crew defies imagination.

The Clinton camp settled on a two-pronged plan — pushing the press to cover how “Russian hacking was the major unreported story of the campaign, overshadowed by the contents of stolen e-mails and Hillary’s own private-server imbroglio,” while “hammering the media for focusing so intently on the investigation into her e-mail, which had created a cloud over her candidacy,” the authors wrote.

“The press botched the e-mail story for eighteen months,” one person who was part of the strategy is quoted as saying. “Comey obviously screwed us, but the press created the story.”

The book also details Clinton’s confusion and frustration with President Obama, whom she apparently thought didn’t do enough “to apprise the public that the Russians had gone way beyond what had been reported”…

The resource:

The Clinton blame game started quickly after the election, and still seems to have forgotten to look inward.

The new Clinton campaign tell-all, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign, reveals how Hillary Clinton personally placed blame for her bruising defeat on Russian meddling “within twenty-four hours of her concession speech.”

The blistering behind-the-scenes book, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, illustrates how Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump’s supposed support from “white nationalists.”

The damage from what they did will take a long time to fix since no-one has a reason to trust Democrats after that and restoring any faith will be damn tough.  In collusion with the CIA, it will be impossible.

Ed:  they won't read this

I know; neoliberals don't read anything.
