I hate writing these posts because inevitably some blinkered shithead will chime in and call me a Hillary fanboy, which I’m not (a simple search of this archives should sustain that assertion), having been driven to the point of near insanity by her 2007-2008 shenanigans, it’s just in 2016 I felt she was the best choice for Democrats and a far better candidate than Trump. I think I have been proven correct on that belief, too. Regardless, it is simply not my style to shy away when obvious bullshit is occurring and I believe in a basic principle of fairness.
Having said all that, I find it simply astounding that Bernie having a heart procedure is not getting more press. Mistermix mentioning it was the first I had heard of it. There was relatively nothing even on twitter.
Contrast that with Clinton, who spent the entire 2016 election cycle dealing with headlines and frontal assaults over MADEUP health allegations. It was so bad that when she had fucking pneumonia but tried to show up to a 9/11 ceremony anyway, we got days of coverage about how her health was a real concern.
They always had it in for her and she was never going to get a fair shake. The 40 year campaign by Republicans to smear her was embraced by the trotskyite left and the Russian front at the Young Turks and elsewhere, and amplified by our “liberal” media. And that’s just the facts.
