Dear Chris Hedges,

I read your piece this time, all of it. I’ve been short with you before, and I wanted to be sure I was on solid ground.

Your answer to the problems of the modern age is anti-Trumpism? As if The Donald created this mess? Despite falling back on 1860s Marxist rhetoric (as is your stock in trade), the only response we have is anti-Trump, thus pro-Hillary Clinton?

That’s what your many years have taught you: support Hillary, lesser-evilism?

I say this because the name JILL STEIN does not appear in the article. That’s the same exact way it does not appear at most places. Making you, Chris Hedges, part of the problem, not the solution.

If you think Hillary Rodham Clinton is a positive force in the world, then the world has indeed overestimated you.

“We like nonfiction, and we live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious President.  We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it’s the fiction of duct tape or the fictitious orange alerts, we are against this war, Mr. Bush.”
Michael Moore Oscar acceptance speech, moments before his mic was cut off.

 

This year may mark a turning point, where the moral bankruptcy was laid bare for all. I’m speaking of the Bernie Sanders flip-flop for Hillary Clinton, the predictable bait-and-switch, which Democrats never seem to imagine in real time. The rest of us have seen it so often that the ruse has become routine Standard Operating Procedure.

A particularly notable case is Sarah Silverman, the filthy-mouthed comedienne, who originally championed Bernie. But she quickly fell into lockstep for Hillary. Silverman had a soul empty enough to go and scold the United States to support a candidate whom she had just been fighting against, and who actually stole the nomination from her own candidate through back-room deals at the DNC and through apparent voting-machine hacking. The thief was rewarded instead of jailed for some reason, which Hollywood has had absolutely zero interest in, as if it didn’t happen. They moved on instantly to lambast us all about Donald Trump 24/7. Orwell couldn’t have written it better.

Hollywood has a highly complex understanding of political philosophy and particularly of this presidential race:

1. Trump Bad

2. Hillary Woman

3. So-called “Lesser Evil”

We should acknowledge, those who are literate, that Hillary Clinton’s repeated threats to escalate World War 3 over Syria leave her as potentially the greater evil, not the lesser at all. The jury is very much out.

“Goldwater Girl” Hillary Rodham Clinton has a lengthy record of supporting every US aggressive war and opposing none. She may have played a part in the killings of over 2 million human beings so far, merely tallying those casualties from the three countries of Iraq, Syria and Libya. One may opt to also add another half-million Iraqi children who died as a result of her husband’s eight years of sanctions.

I noticed Hollywood’s widespread mindless support for Democrats back in 2000, when I kicked that shockingly corrupt party to the curb and joyfully cast a vote for Ralph Nader, an actual American hero whose efforts have saved lives. Die-hard whiners of the Democratic rank-and-file still falsely claim that big bad Ralph gave the election to Dubya Bush, when anyone with the ability to read can see that it was the Supreme Court which stopped the legitimate counting of Florida ballots. Add Bush’s brother Jeb purging nearly two-hundred thousand minority voters from rolls. But the mindless strategy of attacking third parties and attempting to delegitimize democracy itself persists among the ignorant (a majority of Democrats perhaps). This is by design; this is who they are. They do not believe in democracy because the billionaires who fund them do not believe in any democracy they cannot control.

I already responded:

John Oliver Attacks Third Parties

But there’s more I could say…

According to Reuters, the Pentagon has spent 8.5 trillion dollars since 1996, without ever completing a required annual audit.”
PBS

What’s that?

$8.5 TRILLION

Unaccounted for in the Pentagon, a perpetual, intractable problem that happens to be: BUSINESS AS USUAL.

The entire student debt of the United States is only $1.3 trillion, for comparison sake.

And corporate America demands you continue business as usual, while Green Party candidate–who can’t even get on a comedy interview segment–wants to reprioritize us away from a brutal murderous empire to something more sustainable and educated.

The usual myths and all sources are from establishment politicians and their opinions, as if we hadn’t heard enough out of them–

A third party won’t fix what’s broken in American politics

They call Ralph Nader a “spoiler” for Al Gore, despite the Bush clan clearly stealing the Florida election, as if that didn’t merit any mention.

Even assuming his analysis of institutional barriers is correct, the article ignores grassroots movements at the local and state level. These can build to become national leaders over time, but no mention of local and state gains makes it into this misleading article.

Nor do the disenfranchised, the people who refuse to vote for the kakistocracy. These are the base looking for a third party, but propaganda like Vox’s serves to discourage real alternatives. They are part of the controlled manipulation of the public. They want you to believe you are powerless and that there are no alternatives to their rape and pillage. That is the narrative they sell you.
