Again, it just blows my mind how many people on the left dismiss the dangers of Trump.
I get the dangers of Clinton, and have made many many posts against both Bill and Hillary Clinton.
I get Parry's argument here, I do, but I don't buy for a second that Trump has on principle ANY opposition whatsoever to anything NATO would do, in regard to peace, justice, or human rights.
He just doesn't give a flying cluck about such nonsense. I mean, that would be politically correct.
How do people on the left, dismiss Trump's Neocon aligned views on Iran, the ME in general, and especially the State of Israel's policies against Palestinians? Why is that?
Why do people on the left dismiss his repeated statements about a military buildup, increased buildup of the Air Force and Navy in the South China Sea, and his statements regarding taking care of ISIS don't register for some reason of intent to increase deployment of military "solutions" in the ME.
Oh no, Trump just says stuff. And then of course, the never ending dismissal of his calls to triple the number of ICE agents to round up Mexicans, and building a wall is just such a non-issue with some leftists, and banning Muslims from entry, well that's just that silly old Trump again.
Torture? This is the one that really gets me. The guy goes around to resounding cheers at his rallies saying that he would direct torture worse than waterboarding, and that it should be made legal. For some reason this doesn't matter whatsoever to so many people on the left.
I mean, the irony is, that Hillary Clinton has rendered these people mute on Trump.
It just blows my mind. Conceal carry in 50 states? Banning abortion? Prosecuting women (well maybe not now) for seeking abortion? "Free market" based healthcare? Dismantling already weak regulations against Big Energy? Increasing surveillance powers? Backing to the cheers of his adoring fans the current militarized police forces in this country, and using coded language that those Blacks are getting the treatment they deserve?
None of this is any big deal, with Clinton on the scene.
Also, how can anyone observe this dickhead and not realize the danger this person would represent domestically especially AND internationally?
I would love to see Parry interview Trump to discover how he likely holds very shallow points of view regarding Putin, and what is at stake. I personally think Trump's statements on nuclear weapons is terrifying, but again, why would I take that serious?
And the requisite disclaimer, else I'll be branded a Hillary Clinton shill…
And once again. Yes Clinton is endangering world peace, yes she has a long track record of being a war criminal both indirectly and directly, yes she is likely to continue neocon driven policies of Global Hegemony that come from the bowels of PNAC et al, and yes that furtherance of those initiatives and agendas of those neocons is driving the world closer to a possible Nuclear confrontation with Russia.
And no I'm not voting for Clinton to keep Trump out of office, nor have I ever once come to her defense or suggested anyone vote for her.
I'm voting for Stein.
