Hillary Clinton has the worst political instincts and judgment. Who else but Clinton would choose the horribly bland, tone deaf “Stronger Together” for her slogan?
That was also the slogan of the British “Remain” faction, which went down to humiliating defeat at the hands of over 17 million angry British voters: the Brexiteers, the common folk living and working outside downtown affluent, elitist London.
The New York Times has reported that she and Slick Willy have worried for months that Hillary is out of sync with these turbulent times. Ya think?
Hillary is not only out of sync, she is the very symbol of the arrogant, self centred, power hungry, money grubbing American political establishment. These indifferent elites are contemptuous of the strongly-held views, needs and wants of ordinary Americans.
Damn right Hillary and Slick Willy should be scared.
Hillary is not on the right side of history. Hillary is the Titanic of left/liberal international establishment politics: Seemingly indestructible. Slow moving. Cautious. Oblivious to the huge populist iceberg up ahead. She barely perceives its tip.
But this populist iceberg is one hundred times larger beneath the surface of the roiling political seas in which the Bad Ship Hillary chugs along.
This dangerous populist iceberg is waiting patiently to sink the political dreams she has nurtured practically from birth.
The similarities between the successful Brexit achievement and this American presidential election are stark and bang on.
Brits who supported the winning Brexit side voted against the collateral damage of globalized markets (i.e., the lack of job protection in free trade agreements); porous borders that permitted illegal immigrants to jump the line ahead of more worthy and legal ones; and the threat of immigrants entering their country with values that seriously undermined the essence of British identity, i.e., the common law system (as opposed to religious-based Sharia law), unfettered freedom of speech and respect for gender equality.
It is no coincidence that Hillary explicitly supported her hubby Billy’s North American Free Trade Agreement, which led to huge unemployment, recession and economic devastation in America’s manufacturing heartland -- formerly hardcore Democratic states that are now in play as a result of the Brexit-like revolt of the American working and middle income classes.
Similarly, England’s industrial heartland in the north, the stronghold of the leftist Labour party, voted overwhelmingly to leave the European Union.
Workers of the industrial heartland unite! You have nothing to lose but being chained to Cameron, Corbyn and the pantsuited Hillary.
She and her overpaid legions of spinmeisters will insist that "what happened in Brexit stays in Brexit."
But she is just Queen Canute, delusional in her fruitless efforts to turn back the tide.
Hillary will be swamped by American "exiteers" who want her band of myopic, elitist social justice warriors driven from the American political scene.
This will make room for the Trumpster, the orange-haired populist who at least understands them and recognizes their pain.
