As Jill Stein rises in the polls, even polling better than Trump, the oligarchy’s media outlets have turned up the demonization to eleven. The plutocratic media and the Clinton campaign which they so obviously serve, are in a panic that, between voters deflecting to the Green and Libertarian parties, that Her Nibbs may not even be able to beat a flaccid chump of a ringer, like Trump.
Let’s take a brief look at a selection of the string of lies, some thoroughly vile, that have been told about Jill Stein and her campaign for the presidency.
It started, in July, with the lie that “90% of Sanders Voters Will Vote For Hillary.” This has turned out to be such a bad lie that even Plutocratic stenographers like Nate Silver have been forced to admit at least some semblance of the truth…
…the sizable portion of Sanders supporters defecting from Clinton when given other options could still be a problem for the Clinton campaign if the election tightens.
After that, at the end of July, the Clinton campaign, and its surrogates, started in with the utterly contemptible “Jill Stein is an Anti Vaxxer.” anxiously published by the usual Democratic party Sheepdogs. Of course, this too was revealed to be utter bunk, but still circulates among Hillary Clinton’s ignorant and credulous supporters.
I think there’s no question that vaccines have been absolutely critical in ridding us of the scourge of many diseases — smallpox, polio, etc. So vaccines are an invaluable medication … We have a real compelling need for vaccinations. – Jill Stein, 30 July 2016
As her campaign has gained steam and now that she’s secured the nomination as the Green party’s presidential candidate, a slew of mud is being flung. From questions about her VP’s view on meaningless nonsense, like Beyoncé (no, seriously) to attempts by DNC hacks like John Aravosis to portray Ajamu Baraka as “hating Bernie Sanders,” in an attempt to draw votes for his chosen, neoconservative candidate, Hillary Clinton.
The newest attempt to demonize Jill Stein is her inclusion into Hillary Clinton’s red-baiting, paranoid “enemies list” of people she falsely accuses of being allied with the Russia, somehow, a staple of Democrat propaganda.
A frequent weapon for Democrats in the 2016 election is to publicly malign those they regard as critics and adversaries as Russia sympathizers, Putin stooges, or outright agents of the Kremlin. To put it mildly, this is not a new tactic in U.S. political discourse, and it’s worth placing it in historical context. That’s particularly true given how many people have now been targeted with this attack.
So, what are progressives to do? My suggestion is to ignore these obvious and patently false slanders and show these conservative that run the Democratic party what real progressive action looks like. head on over to Jill Stein’s site and volunteer, talk to your friends and family about voting against the ruling-class parties and even register to run as a write-in Green Candidate for your state, where there isn’t a candidate running. And, most of all, don’t let the bastards grind you down!
