Chicago Forum - Hillary Clinton: Bigot and War Criminal - A Socialist Response to "Lesser Evil"
Join us for a very important discussion.
Now that Hillary Clinton, with the help of the entire establishment, has cheated her way to being crowned the Democratic Party nominee for president, it's time to have a serious discussion about what a Clinton presidency would look like. Fortunately for us, she has a lengthy political track record.
Her record in domestic and foreign policy is largely reactionary. She is a neocon--not in name, but deeds. She wants to escalate war and military spending. She will provoke Russia and China, leading to an escalation between major powers. She has declared war on the Palestine solidarity movement.
Clinton is on record making racist comments and defending mass incarceration, voting for anti-Immigrant laws, privatizing public education, opposing equality for LGBTQ people, helping to destroy the social benefits of the "liberal" state and gloating over the destruction of Libya and the street lynching of Libya's leader and much, much more.
People like Trump and Clinton should not have the power to make decisions for the country or the planet. So, what do we do? Who should we vote for? Can we build an alternative? What happens to the movement behind Bernie Sanders? What does a Clinton/Trump presidential race mean for humanity?
