Are you out of your mind? Can you tell me how “the left” said this? Since this was the “left’s” position, I am sure that there is ample evidence that this was the case, yes? Can you provide citations, can you show that this was the dominant view? I followed the 2016 election, and I am not aware that the left, broadly speaking, agreed on much of anything, other than the two major party nominees were horrible and that Sanders was better than them both. Was this overwhelmingly the sentiment among the actual left, the type of people that supported Sanders and critiqued the hawkish Clinton from the left? I remember some people on the left thinking that Trump might be more isolationist, but how many people on the left thought much beyond that about him in isolation? You posting this bullshit makes it as if people here have to answer to this, as if this was the overwhelming sentiment. I remember some people saying that Clinton might be horrible on foreign policy too, since she was an extremist hawk, was palls with Nuland, Kagan. Boot and proudly touted Kissinger’s support of her train wreck of a campaign. Somehow, her being an extremist hawk and her being so bad that she lost to Trump is somehow everyone else’s fault. Say, what would Clinton do if she were in office as Israel was doing this? I mean, Obama gave meek, at most, opposition to Israel, and she is well to his right on foreign policy. So, you tell us what Clinton would be doing to stop this and hold Israel accountable. Clinton did, after all, argue against the Iran deal when running against Obama and worked, with Netanyahu, to fight against key components of the deal at one point. She is close to him too, so I am sure she would be eons better.
Weren’t you the person that argued against supporting Sanders or people like him because of the 1972 McGovern campaign, over and over again? Have you reflected on that, or did you start feeling silly saying that over and over again?
