Buck Up and Just Say Fuckoff to the Democrats

MEMO TO: Progressives

RE: Bernie, Hillary, Obama & FBI

The corporate oligarchy owns both the Democrats and the GOP.  This year Wall Street, the Koch brothers, the Neocons who lied us into Iraq, George Will, George Bush, etcetera, are riding the Hillary train because they don’t like the way the populist right wing and Trump stole their party.

You will be along for the ride with them.  The progressives who stick with the Democrats, and who will follow Bernie into promoting Hillary to save us from Hitler/Trump, are just played for suckers.

Obama was a fraud, like Bill Clinton a charismatic speaker who still fools liberals. After his fortunate inability to vote for the Iraq war, being in the Illinois statehouse and not Washington, he pretended to be a peace candidate and clobbered pro-war Hillary.  Then he announced there would be no investigation of the lies that led to Iraq, and he appointed Hillary his Secretary of State. He has been her houseboy ever since.

In the morning his FBI lets her off the hook, and in the afternoon they fly off together.  Appearance no longer matters to these people.  The Democrats do not need any of you in 2016, they are playing to the disaffected, anti-Trump oligarchs, Wall Street funders and the apparatchiks of the GOP.

Of course, it was all very predictable unless you were deluding yourselves from the beginning, which you alway do, and do so well.

Now Bernie is pitching for money to help deliver his sheep to Philly, and planning a big rally as the convention begins.  But his influence waned long ago, except for his ability to still draw true believers who will follow his lead and “begrudgingly” support Hillary, the candidate he will be voting for.

Isn’t it time to buck up and just say fuck off to the Democrats?
