A political rant

Hi ! Renxkyoko Iglesias  here. * waves *

There are so much I want to talk about that  I don’t know where to begin.

————————————————-

Believe it or not, I wrote the above  2 days ago.  It’s a good thing  I didn’t write what was on my mind  that time, otherwise I would have gotten myself in trouble.  You see, I  felt like  virtually   punching a certain  politician’s supporters’  faces. But then, we had expected this kind of behavior from the fringe, the far Left and the far Right.  The far Left has overran  all the Democratic Party’s fora, and had the temerity and gall to call  Hillary Clinton all sorts of names, like cunt, corporate slut , whore. It’s cringe – worthy. Majority of them have vowed to never vote for her if she becomes the nominee of the Democratic Party…. all of these on the Democratic party’s  forums.  Omg, these are nasty people. My gawd, how can we expect them to vote for her after all the things they have written about her ?

Do you know what they did  to Dolores Huerta , a well- known Latino activist and a Hillary supporter ?  And you guys are wondering  why poor minorities aren’t with you, despite dangling  FREE STUFF  on their heads ?   You guys knock on doors of poor people , and tell them  Sanders’  going to increase WIC, welfare checks,  food stamps, besides the big  deals like  free insurance, college,  and I don’t know what else  the fuck you guys are promising, and at whose expense ?  You see a minority  opening the door to you,  then  you start peddling  your  free stuff, hoping  they will be seduced .  Well, that’s how    some otherwise   Sanders  supporters  changed their minds.  You just looked down on them.

You actually think  you can  distribute free money  for 300 million people from businesses and rich people ?  You are like climate change deniers.  Almost all progressive economists  are saying  your policies will wreak havoc  on the US, except for one ,from whom your candidate based his economic mumbo jumbo.

Clinton won in Nevada because of the poor but hardworking  union workers’ votes .  They don’t need your freakin’ free stuff…  they need  social justice .  And you guys bash the symbol of   ” real promise” in the  hearts and minds of black folks…. Pres. Obama.  Your candidate had called him weak, another corporate lackey, and wanted him primaried in 2012.  You look down on Obama care . Whatever you guys say about it, it does work.  I have a friend who simply cannot afford insurance for her and her child….. but  she enrolled and qualified  , and is now paying just $24  a month .  She has been told it would increase  with increase in income, as it should be.

Another thing,  you made Cornel West the Black face in your party.  Google the nasty things he said about Pres. Obama.  I heard him on TV.  He was one nasty guy. And another thing, when a group  endorses Clinton,  you call them ” establishment ” .  UFW (  United farm Workers , SEIU ( government workers in California )  Planned Parenthood, LGTB, and others. Planned Parenthood and LGTB are establishments?  You guys bash anyone that doesn’t conform to your ideology.

And do you guys actually  think  your candidate  can do this on his own, once he sets  foot in the White House ?  That’s how you sell your ideology .   Oh, wait… there’s REVOLUTION !!

Politics involves good governance, and compromises. After all,  you’re not only the president of believers of socialist ideology.  You are the president of 300 million citizens with differing persuasions.  Compromises do work. Obamacare works.  Sanders has vowed he will never compromise.  A person who  doesn’t compromise ,  and doesn’t evolve  should not be President.

This is all.  I’m not going to accept  any  shitty  comments, like Hillary =  evil,  , by the way. I’ve had enough of that  crap talking to these people. Not on my blogsite, anyway.

The Democratic Party memo has sent word to Democrats not to  ” displease ” Sanders’ supporters.   Nice.

  3. Wow, politics there is as worse as what we have here in the Philippines. Sometimes it is based on popularity and not what they can do for the country.

        • American politicians sell their policies, but not the way Philippine politicians do. Didn’t Binay just promise to wipe out taxes ? That’s to get votes, right ? The Philippies GDP at 8 % is now the highest in Asia,higher than China’s even, and have a good enough reserves in the treasury. Binay, in his greed to be President will practically undo all the things that have been done. Eliminating taxes is a come – on. Now that sounds familiar, doesn’t it ?

  4. Now don’t be shy, speak your mind, Woman!

    I agree with a lot of what you said. Jeez, we need to work together for one of our candidates not tear each other down. But I gotta say, I’m with you on a lot of Bernie’s promises. Ummmm, where’s the money for free healthcare and free college gonna come from????? There’s no such thing as a free lunch!

    Reply

    • I didn’t want to, Elyse. This is a very unpleasant business, but the other side have no qualms whatsoever , so why should I hold back and let them say anything ? The level of disrespect towards Hillary is the same as those of the Republicans’ towards Pres. Obama. It’s quite disheartening.

      • It is.

      • It seems to me that President Obama could not gain a political smile from anyone there for awhile! It is never cool to be the first to jump off the fence, so to speak. BTW I am wondering why I do not automatically receive your posts. I will need to check in on that !

  5. Politicians campaigning for some high office of the land have always been known to get votes by promising this and that. That’s a global phenomenon. The politician whose ideology has shifted from here and there just to win votes is the dangerous politician. Those who stands ground on their beliefs from years or decades ago till today is the better ones, even if you find it funny, weird, irritating or darn stupid. At least, they are consistent and there are no surprises afterwards. Like the ol’ computer terminology – WYSIWYG. Clinton, Trump, Cruz… who else reflect consistency?

    • Sanders had voted on bills ( that passe ) that he now considers anathema , like laws that he now considers mass incarceration, He has consistently voted against gun control laws ( because he ‘s the senator of a state that disapproves of. any gun control laws.0 His rationale is they are his constituents. Now he’s for gun control. A politician whose ideology doesn’t change is as dangerous . Look at Hitler, and any of the dictators. Consistency is not a good thing when it involves he lives of people. Cruz consistently says he’s going to push the nuclear button on countries he perceives as enemies of America. Is he a better person, because , as you say, he’s consisitent, and no surprises ?

  7. Enjoyed your rant but am saddened by the whole political process.

  8. It sounds like you have settled down a little. Our polititcal system does allow the freedom for office seekers to go a little overboard. How else are they going to wake-up the sleeping American public? This way they can justify their rude and ridiculous behavior.

    • Sadly, it seems this is the path the politicians and their supporters are taking

    • They can be rude, that is for sure. I’m curious to know how you would feel about a few of my stories. Some of them may not be politically correct, but we are starting to get a following. At Gastradamus your opinion is very valued, come and check it out when you have the time.

  11. I don’t know what it is, but whatever you say, whether you are talking about your travels, your family or ranting, quite rightly in my opinion, about the political nutters strutting and posturing across the American political climate at this time I just find myself smiling because I love the energy and sense of engagement you bring to your blog, plus I tend to agree with and sympathise with everything you say. 🙂

    Reply

    • I wonder if Great Britain has a counterpart ? Sadly, this is the new norm in US politics. I am just shocked that the Far Left can be as nasty as the far Right. I guess the name bleeding heart liberals does not refer to them. The level of disrespect towards Hillary is at the level of Republicans disrespect towards Pres. Obama. It’s mind-boggling and jaw – dropping.

      Reply

    • She has great energy, I can agree with that. If this piece makes you smile then I think you would like my stories st Gastradamus. Please when you can join the conversation.

  12. I don’t dig the disrespect coming at Hillary, either. I will vote for her if she gets the nomination, I’ll vote for Bernie if he gets it. Both have good and bad about them, but serious, I’ve seen some crazy crap coming from the Bern side that’s just not suitable.

    Reply

    • I’d expect such disrespect coming from Republicans but from supposedly fellow ” democrats “? Cassie, I’ve been reading them , and you can’t believe what they’re saying about her. It’s jaw-dropping. It ‘d make any Hillary supporter cry. Those bastards.

      Reply

      • I’ve seen this happen before way back in the 1970’s, when McGovern ran. But so much of the vitriol towards Hillary has to do with her gender, and that has no place in this election.

        Reply

        • You nailed it. The ones who don’t vote for her are white males.

          I’m confident too that she will be the nominee. By the way, there’s one prominent Sanders supporter who said that if he doesn’t become the nominee, they will destroy the Democratic Party.

          Reply

          • And that guy is a complete jag. If he does that, then he destroys the country, and this is the one thing I don’t like about some of the people supporting Sanders. They’re rather burn the house down than let someone else hold he keys.

            Reply

  13. Hillary is the most qualified candidate, or even most qualified person to take the office of the United States of America. Hillary went through a lot with the slander and defamation of the Republicans and she is still standing there and fighting back. Every one I know is rooting for Hillary with passion! Go Hillary!!! 🙂

    Reply

    • Every one I know are for Hillary, too, even the ones who will benefit from his free stuff. But Sanders’ supporters are very loud and aggressive, and rude and nasty. And yes, she’s the most qualified. Go, Hillary ! ! ! \(^_^)/

  14. What pisses me off, is Trump wanting to punch protesters in the mouth, puts down the elderly, Hispanic, Muslims, I could go and on, but he is big fucking asshole, along with Cruz etc., etc. ….

    Reply

    • That goes without saying…..

      What I’m concerned about is the Democratic Party doing the same thing to each other. How can we expect a person to vote for a nominee that he/she publicly despises and viciously denounces ? The difference between the Republicans and the supposedly Sanders Democrats is that the former will support whoever is the nominee, whereas the Sanders supporters will not. Ever.

  15. As a child, my mom told me to never debate politics and religion. ‘Nuff said. LOL!

    Reply

    • Religion, yes, one can say it’s almost taboo to discuss ones faith, but I feel we should all be concerned with what’s happening in the US. The whole world is watching and worried. I’m sure people all over the world want the Democrats to win. They know a Pres. trump or Cruz is dangerous. But its becoming too contentious among the Democrats , as well. The hatred is so think you can cut it with a knife. And yes, I’m hating too.

      Reply

      • I agree with you about the concern. I’m concerned also. The competition between Hillary and Bernie does stand in the middle of many Democrats. My face dropped when VP Biden said he was not going to run.

        Reply

        • Id prefer Biden over Sanders anytime. I like Hillary that’s a given, but Biden is second best to me. I’d have been happy campaigning for him if he was he nominee. With Sanders, Im afraid Id sit this one out. Not going to vote on general election.

          Reply

  16. I like Bernie but I didn’t know about these things that Bernie supporters are saying. That’s really bad and a worry.

    Reply

    • It’s true. That’s why some people say Bernie and his supporters should cool it. His supporters have already stated they ” cannot imagine voting for Clinton ” . The loudest ones were former Nader supporters whose vicious attacks on Gore and now Clinton had been proven to be terribly costly to the world. Their unproven accusations, using words like ambitious, untrustworthy, etc. are echoed over and over by the media, defining her and her persona, and as if being ambitious to be president is a vice , worse , evil. That’s just an example. They have joined the media , the Republicans and everyone else , and doing it with relish, in bashing her, day in and day out, a person who’s been in public service for almost 40 years. Just go to any forum….. the Republicans do not have to bash her…. Bernie supporters are doing a great job of it. When she went to China to deliver her message of Women’s rights are human rights, in the 90s , I highly doubt she said that because she wanted to be President. When she worked for universal health care in the 90s , I don’t think it was a move to pander to the poor and make her President. When she successfully established Children Defense Fund in the 80’s , I highly doubt she was thinking of the White House. When Susan Sarandon was earning millions that time , Hillary Clinton was already doing public service. How dare she ?

      Clinton has been kicked in the face , fallen down countless times, and manages to stand up and fight again. This woman will be a good President.

  17. Isn’t it shameful how one bully in the schoolyard can affect the demeanor of all the children playing there ? [See election year 2016] Let us all drop to the least common denominator and join in on the fun ! [gag] ; )

    Reply

    • Their quote Gleeful Liberal Takedown is affirming institutional sexism, unquote. Sanders’ supporters have borrowed the Republicans’ tropes and narrative, with so much vitriol that it rendered Hillary supporters speechless. That’s how it affected the demeanor of all the children playing there. We’re just waiting for them to say Hillary had Vince Foster murdered.

      Reply

      • You mean she didn’t !? ; ) I am led to understand that this sort of mudslinging, self bravado, tear-them-down-to-make-youself-look-bigger, juvenile way of winning votes was quite prevalent in the early elections of our country. I can only hope that, come time for the selection of President, the mayhem will have died down enough that people will be able to think before they vote. In the meantime I think that the sense of entitlement that so many Americans seem to feel will continue to express itself until the sheer energy required to maintain the momentum is lost . I could be wrong.

  18. Great!! That puts things in perspective pretty clearly.

    • Thanks ! I guess the punching thing is a little out of order, LOL, but after reading so much of their vitriol, that’s what I felt like doing, virtually, of course, POW ! BAM, and here’s an uppercut, lol. I didn’t even organize my thoughts into one coherent thing. I just typed away. * sigh *

      You know, about this mass incarceration thing…. they accuse Hillary of supporting this bill, and omitting the fact that Sanders voted for it as well. He voted, Hillary didn’t. She was just a First Lady, and now he’s scratching his head and saying, ” well, the bill has good points in there, like Domestic Abuse. By the way, his supporters are still peddling that lie.

  20. The lengths that people will go to for their chosen candidate, whom lets face it they will be complaining about in a few years for not having done enough. There really should be some sort of reform over all this election nonsense be it for primary or president. It is a shame people will be swayed by the mob mentality and not bother looking for themselves who will do the best job.

    That Democratic party memo is a joke as well. There really are no other words.

    Reply

    • Sad, but true, SteJ.

      What is even sadder are journalists who have stopped doing their jobs of reporting the truth , and only the truth. Worse, they do anything to promote their preferred candidate. For ex… I used to like MSNBC. They are friendly to Democrats, and on the liberal side… but now, they are obviously Sanders supporters. They only invite guests who are Sanders supporters, and one talk show host, Chris Hayes, showed a cropped clip of Bill Clinton’s speech , that part where he seemed to be criticizing Pres. Obama , then proceeded in saying, ” did you see and hear that ? He’s bashing the first Black President,” or something like that. Those who were there at Bill Clinton’s rally were outraged, because it didn’t show what he said after that, and did not show the never- ending applause right after he said that. It was almost a100 % audience of African – Americans in South Carolina where Hillary later whooped Sanders a** getting almost 86% of the Black vote, even bigger than what Obama got from them. Sanders got only 14% of the total votes. Democrats in South Carolina are predominantly black. That’s why , they’re trying to slander Hillary with black voters. And now, they’re telling lies about the tough crime bill that was passed by Congress in the 90’s , and signed by Bill Clinton. This bill , allegedly, caused the mass incarceration of Africans – Americans. The problem is, Hillary was First Lady and therefore couldn’t vote, but Sanders was a Congressman who voted for it. So Sanders’ supporters are misleading people. A lie told a million times becomes the truth in time.
      Chris hayes gave an non- apology. he said they shouldn’t have clipped the whole video, so ” people could just judge it for themselves. ” And every time they mention Hillary’s name, the word ambitious follows. She’s a woman, why should she aspire to be President ? These so called liberal talk show hosts have now been gleefully taking Hillary down using the Republicans tropes and talking points. Their behavior is so brazen.

      Fortunately, Sanders will not be the nominee. No matter how they tweak the math, the numbers are just not there. That’s why the ” blietzkriez ” against her is unprecendented.

      • It seems a lot more of a rabid a contest than usual, these days journalists do the bidding of papers and TV with vested interests. It becomes less about the actual unbiased coverage and more about clickbait and the need to impress the sponsors. It’s a depressing state of affairs.

Have a nice day

    Reply

    • You’re right. Well, I’m for Hillary Clinton, ha ha, but seriously, I hope she doesn’t effed up her presidency. * crossin fingers, knocking on wood * I don’t even know how she can make this work, what with both Houses dominated by Republicans. It was a miracle Pres. Obama managed to pass his Affordable Health Care Insurance bill ( Obamacare )

      Sanders is a good man , and when he joined the Democratic Party ( He’s Independent , but caucuses with the Democrats ) I was happy, and if he was lucky enough to win the Demoratic Primary, I’d be happy to vote for him, but things have gotten dirty, and his supporters have been viciously attacking Clinton, the level of which is unprecedented. that I fear that after this, Clinton will be severely damaged and hurt by these vicious attacks from supposedly fellow Democrat going into general election.

      * sigh * The world should be concerned, too. What if the next White House occupant is a Pres. trump or , believe it or not, even a scarier Pres. Cruz ? This Republican Cruz had already used the word NUKE you know what /who.

  24. I’m not an American but I think if Hilary ran in the UK she’d be on the right. She’s a lot like our conservative party.

    Reply

    • That’s the problem. They have defined her as conservative when in fact, , she votes 93% of the time with Bernie Sanders. That’s on record. She has been graded as more to the left of Pres. Obama, and in fact, her HillaryCare ( insurance reform ) in 1993 was more radical than Bernie Sanders’. But of course it was shut down, but she was successful in passing Health care for children. as a Senator. People don’t know that, because the media does not want to print anything that is positive about Clinton. It’s all about institutional sexism.

  25. 2016 represented change. Only time will tell if the change is good, or bad…but until then, we need to look at 2017….new beginnings. Younger generations need to come together in 2017 and stand up for what we know is right. The world isn’t as big as it used to be…not to us. And we have the power to overcome the older generations and take our world back. We can bring control back to the people, how it was always supposed to be. We own enough of the population to control what is right and wrong, and make a real impact on the future. We don’t need to stand back just watching while our world burns. Join me in taking our world back in 2017. Happy New Years!
