Some of you may want to look away.
I’m slightly annoyed with this whole recount business UP nawth, and most especially pissed at Dr. Jill Stein.
Now, I have for the most part been quiet on the blog about the election. Oh, yes, yes, I know, I did a post or two, and I’ve chimed in a time or two on a Facebook post, but I’ve tried – and I’m sure failed – NOT to be inflammatory.
Well, put your flame retardant onesie on.
During the election cycle, in a private exchange on the internet with a family member I jokingly said, “My biggest fear is that now that Mother and Daddy are dead, they will vote Democrat for the first time!”
It was shortly after the James Madison University voting scandal erupted, it was meant in humor, and it was NOT.WELL.RECEIVED.
Not at all!
The comment back was loaded with sarcasm, I’ll paraphrase, “…sure, sure, if Trump loses the election it will be because of all the dead voters and the illegals streaming in to vote…”
We, out of family harmony, moved on to other topics far less dangerous.
But, the country hasn’t.
Prior to the stunning result of Donald Trump actually winning the presidency, every one – including me – thought he’d lose, and make a fuss like no other when he did.
Well, it didn’t happen that way.
The fuss did.
But not by Secretary Clinton.
Blame can be spread around a plenty, but like I said UP there, Dr. Jill is part of the problem, a big part, and what she’s doing in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania is useless, expensive, wasteful, divisive, and just plain wrong.
Frankly, Dr. Stein cares less about America than Putin in my book, and she for darn sure doesn’t give a crap about democracy.
If she did, she’d be recounting a few other places as well.
Like Colorado where Secretary Clinton won by fewer than 72,000 votes, or Minnesota where she received 43,784 more votes than President Elect Trump, or Maine where she won by 20,035.
And what about hard fought Nevada?
She garnered 26,434 more votes than the Republican Candidate in Nevada, and gave him a shellacking of 6,762 votes in New Hampshire.
I don’t see teams of re-counters dashing to those states to assure the American voting public that Democracy lives in Reno, Vegas, or Minneola!
Dr. Jill is a spoiler. She cares nothing for democracy, America, American values, or for that matter freedom.
If Dr. Jill had her way, we’d all be living 1984 or Anthem lives.
She’s a socialist who borders on communism.
And she showed her true colors last week when she referred to Fidel Castro as “…a beacon of justice in the shadow of empire…”
Yeah, yeah, I know, I mentioned that one before, but humor me, it’s my blog, and quite frankly, I’m still pissed about it, and everyone needs to realize just how dangerous this woman is!
By expressing her adoration for Fidel in that light, she is telling us what she and every other true socialist believes.
Capitalists, capitalism, freedoms, democracy, and freedom of thought must be squashed.
She thinks it just that Fidel Castro gunned down hundreds of Cuban dissidents after Raul blindfolded them and while Che watched.
She thinks it fair that thousands were imprisoned in Cuba for dissenting.
She thinks it’s just dandy that voting rights were denied there when Cubans were forced to vote and vote for one party – the Socialist Party.
She thinks all that’s OK because that’s the way socialists think.
She may not wield a gun in the revolution, but she’d re-load Fidel’s if she could.
What she’s doing in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania is wrong. She’s doing it to divide America further.
She’s doing it to fill the coffers of the Green Party to allow them a larger voice in the political conversation.
And if any voice needs to be silenced, it’s that one.
