On Tuesday, a group which formerly included Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped into Hillary Clinton.
And why? Well, she announced she wouldn’t be endorsing everyone’s favorite socialist — America’s rich uncle, Bernie Sanders.
In America, if you wanna get rich, start your own business. But socialists want to take that away — in socialism, the government takes ownership of it all. All products and means of production are owned solely by the politicians.
But it seems as if no one knows that. It appears there are people who believe “socialism” just means “something really cool.”
And some of those are stumpin’ for Sanders.
Bernie’s got major fans, but Hillary ain’t one.
The Hollywood Reporter asked if she’d be backing Bernie against Trump.
“I’m not going to go there yet.”
That article came out Tuesday.
But a documentary’s about to be released, and in it — according to THR — Hil hawks this:
“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
Since she feels bad that people get sucked into the campaign of a career politician, she probably feels bad all the time — there’s a lot of that goin’ around.
There was, even four years ago.
And she probably feels even worse now — Justice Democrats didn’t appreciate her comments, and — like the Empire — they struck back.
The group released a press release and shredded her.
Apparently, they think she’s still treating Bernie like he’s her 2016 nemesis:
Defeating Trump is more important than settling old scores. Secretary Clinton’s statement is unacceptable, out-of-touch, and dangerous. We’re calling on her to do the right thing and immediately say that she’ll do everything she can to support whomever becomes the Democratic nominee.
So they’re tryin’ somethin’ special: JD have started a petition demanding Hillary commit to endorsing Bern if he’s the nominee.
I’ll say that once more, because its goofiness — I think we can all agree — more than warrants it:
Justice Democrats have begun a campaign wherein a buncha people sign their names, and therefore 72-year-old Hillary Clinton is forced to support a particular person for President of the United States.
Hillary Clinton refused to say whether or not she will support Bernie Sanders if he wins the Democratic nomination. That is unacceptable.
If you’d like to join the revolution, feel free to offer your John Hancock here.
Let’s just hope no one realizes this thing works — otherwise, someone could just start a petition that says all Americans have to vote for [INSERT YOUR WORST CANDIDATE HERE].
“And that’s how the world was won.”
