Can you please stop with this sexism meme? It's tiresome. The coming election is not about some ideal of gender equality. It's about which person, regardless of sex, will be granted the power to destroy the world. And the only thing relevant to hatred for Clinton is that she earned every bit of it.
I've never voted for a Republican or a Conservative in my life, but if Clinton gets the nomination I will vote for Trump even though my intellectual/emotional choice is Jill Stein. Unfortunately, with so much at stake in this particular election, principle must take a back seat to reality.
I have absolutely no doubt that Clinton is an existential threat to human survival. Trump less so. Just on the issues of foreign policy, trade and economics he is well to the left of America's version of Margaret Thatcher. And frankly, in the face of potential nuclear annihilation and world economic collapse everything else pales. Yes, he's an obnoxious a_hole. But no less so than she. Is he a racist? I don't know for sure. I haven't seen evidence of it prior to this campaign. He may just be politically pandering to his base. The fact is, it's offensive, just as is his apparent xenophobia. Again, his positions prior to the campaign are not crystal clear. What is clear is that Clinton is at least as racist as evidenced by her fervent and active support on behalf of her husband's so-called welfare and prison "reforms" which have done more actual damage to women and racial minorities than Trump ever has and perhaps more than any government policy in a century. Why minorities support Clinton astounds me.
Clinton's influence over events in the Middle East (Libya, Syria, Egypt, etc) and her enthusiastic support for religious dictators in the region also has done more real damage to women than Trump ever has despite all of his sexist rhetoric. I can understand why women reject Trump but I don't understand why they don't reject Clinton.
In an election where neither choice is palatable, I'll have to come down on the side of the candidate further to the left. Minorities and women might agonize over a Trump presidency but at least they won't have to worry as much about being incinerated in a nuclear holocaust.
There's a reason the mainstream Republican party despises Trump. It's not his racism or sexism they oppose. Cruz, Rubio, et al are equally if not more on the wrong side of those issues. It's Trumps rejection of neocon foreign policy and neoliberal economics that infuriates them.
So for me the choice is simple. I would rather have Sanders, and if he miraculously pulls it off I will vote for him. But that seems like a longshot. That said, there is no way, under any circumstances, that I will vote for the monstrous, mass murdering war criminal and corporate lackey Hillary Clinton. She is by far the greater evil.
