If you have not taken the time to read this article from The Hobbled Hoy please do so! It is an extremely insightful take on why the English thoroughly despise Trump and are puzzled by the fact that any number of Americans could possibly think he has anything of any value to contribute to humanity. Perhaps my favorite quotation from the article is as follows:
And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.– Michael Stevenson
The above statement is so perfectly fitting Donald Trump that it is almost frightening. I have always maintained that #45 makes George W. Bush look like a Rhodes Scholar by comparison. I would have thought that we as a people would have learned our lesson from electing the bona fide moron that Dubbya was but we really haven’t.
Trump stands out in extremely stark relief to Bernie Sanders, the candidate to defeat not just him but the class that is practicing systemic oppression of every member of the working class, regardless of race, color, creed, gender, gender identity, etc.
Now, by comparison, see what Bernie Sanders is doing for the everyday human being. He has inspired the creation of this video by folks committed to the cause. This video has not received any form of remuneration by the campaign. It was born out of a strong belief and love of a candidate that, arguably, has not surfaced since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The video, titled “This is My Life” comes out of a strong conviction that we have a candidate that finally values us more than the elite and wealthy.
