Every once in a great while, I'll pen a screed to a reader that's really too good to waste. This is one of those times. This is an email I got this afternoon from one of my readers:
If Clinton is increasing her lead due to Trump's self-destruction, then why should her supporters be concerned about what Stein does?
They can't win with class. They were nasty with Sanders and his supporters and they're even nastier (not to mention misogynistic) with Stein.
Or maybe they're not as confident of victory in November as the mainstream media makes it out to be.
I responded by simply commenting on the irony that by going after two Jewish presidential candidates, no one has ever accused Kamp Klinton of antisemitism. Then I penned this later:
This is ironic, now that you mention misogyny... Peter Daou, who's just gotten on my radar screen and is now my second career, is forever accusing Clinton critics of being "sexist" simply for criticizing her.
In his hysterical screeds begging to know why Bernie backers hate Clinton so much, he comes thisclose to calling us misogynists just for the simple group thoughtcrime of not backing his Goldwater Girl. What Daou and Hillary's other little Goebbels don't get is we hate her so much because she's almost radically different from Sanders & Stein and we recognize her as the mainstream right wing. And we hate her and her surrogates for lying on us, being so vicious with us on social media and using right wing tactics.
And I don't want to hear any shit about how Sanders & Clinton have little daylight between them because they voted on the same side of bills 93% of the time in the Senate. A voting record is, at best, a poor & unreliable barometer of political ideology. Lawmakers vote for and against bills all the time in the spirit of compromise, such as a Democrat voting against an otherwise progressive bill because some scumbag Republican put in a poison pill.
It should be screamingly obvious to anyone with one eye or more than two functional neurons that Clinton's been in the tank for right wing causes since she was a 16 year-old Goldwater Girl. And she's only gotten more right wing in her old age.
Of course, peckerheads like Peter Daou can't or won't see that because he got sucked into her cult of personality. The rest of the morons at Blue Balls Review do what they do because they were paid off. But Daou's a true believer as he used to work for the witch and is happy to be one of her flying monkeys. That's why I've so quickly grown to hate him so very, very much.
