Andrew Levine (of Counter Punch magazine), one of many zombie Leftists Hillary-haters, apparently looked at himself in the mirror and saw a zombie looking back at him. Or maybe he saw what a yuuge ass he is. Must We Now Rethink the Hillary Question? Absolutely, Not
(Andrew Levine couldn’t apologize for willingly helping Trump defeat Hillary Clinton, so, I’m not apologizing for insulting him here. This is an angry post; check the badge on the right-side bar. There’s no need to be Pollyanna with people who brought fascism to this nation. These creatures are unapologetic for having elected fascist Trump and for the havoc he is about to unleash on the rest of us. Levin will not suffer anything, he is white and has the financial means to weather the storm. Not me. So there.)
I give him credit for at least assessing his contribution to Hillary Clinton’s defeat. That’s more than what I expected from the zombie Left, and I haven’t read any other zombie Leftists self-assessment of their contribution to the debacle that is awaiting us the next four years.
Typical of the zombie Left, though, Mr. Levine says ‘I didn’t do that’. He can’t see, because zombies don’t have real eyes to see, where his huge mistakes are. His hatred of Hillary clouds his judgement and intellect, it lowered it to ‘deplorable’ level. As you will see below, his ‘logic’ for voting for Trump (he said he voted for Jill, but the numbers for her tell a different story, and, of course, no one can prove he voted for her) is the same as the deplorables; I’m not kidding. The Marxists have become Trumpists. Pathetic, but I told you so since February here, didn’t I?
The biggest and most offensive of his mistake, which he committed again in his pseudo-apology, is that he and the zombie Left keep talking as if they own some magic ball to see the future: they KNOW what Hillary Clinton would have done. They couldn’t see in that ball what Trump is going to do, but they could see Hillary’s machinations.
And Andrew can’t see that his ‘analysis’ are nothing but innuendo and character assassination. I thought he understood the propaganda technique of ‘character assassination’, how it works, but clearly he doesn’t understand that either.
Along with nearly everyone else, I thought that Hillary would win.
That’s great thinking, man. You thought she would win, so let’s tear her down, what the heck, she can’t lose. Brilliant! That’s Marxist thinking at its highest. Wait. Let me subscribe to Counter Punch right now!
I didn’t think she was going to win for sure. I was reading the propaganda against her coming from right to left. You, Mr. Levine, you read the WaPo and the NYT and couldn’t see the propaganda against her there. Your hatred of her is so profound that it blinds your intellect. Hillary lost votes because the hatred you dumped on her. It was hatred and anti-feminism.
The MSM let you do the dirtier attacks on her, they simply paid for ‘polls’ that ‘show’ that the “people found her to be less trustworthy than Trump”. You can believe that she is that, but that’s because you are an intellectually dishonest Leftist. Or simply as dumb and malleable as the ‘deplorables’.
The pollsters said so, and they seemed to know what they were talking about; they certainly had enough data.
Well, if the ‘pollsters’ said so, it must be true ’cause they NEVER lie. They have no reason to lie, don’t they? You, Mr. Levine, trusted the pollsters paid by the MSM and the oligarchs. Most of those polls said that she will win “despite people not liking her”. There was not one poll where Hillary was not depicted as the most evil of the candidates, even more evil than the GOP 16 candidates.
how could someone backed by the entire power structure lose?
Had you been paying attention, you would have notice that she was not “backed” by the “structure”. Little me, myself, i.e.,wrote about that on my inartful blog. But you, big intellectual man, could not see that, in every news paper “endorsing” her, there were 24/7 email gossips and character assassination. It worked. It’s called propaganda because it’s stealthy and constant. The elite NEVER wanted a woman identified as a feminist as their boss, but they can’t come out and say it, can they? You don’t want a feminist running your government either, do you?
So while they portrayed Trump as a clown, they portrayed her as a dishonest, deeply corrupted woman. The masses are brainless, they went for the clown (as you are still doing), the least ‘threatening’.
I knew that just the opposite was the case: that she had made a mess of nearly every project she has undertaken.
That woman can’t cook, that’s the problem. No man has ever botched anything in politics. She has to be PERFECT if she wants to be president. Of course, you never looked at the things SHE DIDN’T BOTCHED. Also, you could see Trump ‘botching” his campaigns, but that didn’t stop you from accusing her of “incompetency” but not him.
after Bernie Sanders betrayed the movement his campaign got going.
Bernie didn’t betray you; you betrayed yourself. As I predicted here, once he lost, the Left would blame him for their own stupidity. You praised Sanders without looking at this voting record, and you still think he is a ‘revolutionary’; you only hate him now because he stayed in the Dem party, not because he is a FAKE leader. You also thought Trump is a revolutionary because he spoke his pseudo-anti-globalism. You bought that too. And you, together with Susan Sarandon and the rest of the zombie Leftist, told voters that Hillary Clinton is more dangerous than Trump, that Trump is no-fascist. She is the fascist, you all said, without evidence. Even though Hillary accepted and included some of Sanders ‘policies’, you still hated her.
Trump is hardly a pacifist or an anti-imperialist, but while running for office, he did, for the most part, advance anti-interventionist positions. Who knows if he meant any of it –
“Who knows if he meant any of it“? Is that your best Marxist analysis? He ran on a “pacifist” agenda (I didn’t see it, but if you say he did, it must be true), and you trusted him because…he is no politician.There is no difference between you and the deplorables; you have the same arguments they used. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?
Actually, I bet you DID vote for Trump.
But Hillary is a Russophobe
That’s a good reason to not vote for a person who HAS done something for the less privileged here. If she hates Putin, there’s NO WAY we should vote for her; defending him is more important than the problems we have here. You set our priorities straight: if you hate Putin and you are not in the extreme left, you are a no-no.
Your pseudo-apology is not accepted. You own Trump and the disaster he will unleashed on this planet. You are intellectually spent. No one should listen to you. You can’t even conceive of making coalitions with the enemy, Hillary in your case. You are close-minded, which is a typical characteristic of zombie Leftists.
You are not Marxists, you are idiots, and a threat to the working class, to women, to people of colors, to foreigners. You will find your way to support Trump because you agree with his racists rants. You think that the only important thing is economic class struggle. Women have been oppressed looong before capitalism, in case you haven’t notice. It has nothing to do with economics but a lot with male primitive psychology.
Anyway, you doubled down on your stupid ‘analysis’ of why Hillary is the more evil of them all. So, too bad. No pity for remorseless zombie Leftists. You secured your place in history: the American Left supported fascist Trump.
Disgusting CounterPunch and zombie Leftists.
