“When the violence causes silence we must be mistaken”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyp5we2ySDo
Many Hillary supporters see this election as social justice issue. Obama has worked hand in hand with the media in branding the Clintons as racists and spreading the gross lie that Hillary was calling for Obama’s assassination. The so-called liberal bloggers have joined in this appalling demonstration. The Democratic Party has remained silent. Now they want us to be silent and give it up.
This whole “inevitable” line is a game. It’s a game to cow us into silence, into submission. The media are fighting in our heads, just like the media did when they cheered us into Iraq. Just like when they cheered us into accepting Bush in 2000. Just like they cheered us into rejecting health care reform in the 1990s.
We’re not supporting Hillary on a whim. Disenfranchisement of FL and MI is a moral failure–the voters did nothing wrong. The recent deliberate efforts to suppress turnout in the last primary states to protect Obama from a humiliating popular vote defeat is also a moral failure. The Democratic Party I gladly worked for over the last several years was never about disenfranchisement or voter suppression.
We are staying in this because we are not just supporting Hillary anymore. We are fighting the attempts to disenfranchise voters and suppress turnout. We are fighting the casual acceptance of misogyny and character assassination of someone we consider to be an American treasure. We are staying in this as long as Hillary does. If you think your mind violence is going to keep us silent, you are mistaken.
