Huffington Post Continues Campaigning for Hillary Clinton

See this screen-shot taken at 1:30 in the afternoon on November 9th, after Trump’s win:

They pretend Trump’s win is a victory for bigots, instead of a defeat for the aristocracy (‘Wall Street’, ‘The Establishment’, or America’s billionaires and their agents such as lobbyists and the leading politicians).

However, a close look at the evidence shows Huffington Post to be wrong: Trump’s win was overwhelmingly driven by Americans’ repudiation of the aristocracy itself (such as, for example, repudiation of the Institute that runs Huffington Post’s neoconservative international edition, World Post, the Berggruen Institute (including Eric Schmidt, Lawrence Summers, Fareed Zakaria, Arianna Huffington, Nicholas Berggruen, Ernesto Zedillo, Carl Bildt, Niall Ferguson, and Joseph Nye, all being proponents of Obama’s building war against Russia — such as: “To confront Putin, Europe will have to make changes that will be deeply controversial on a continent long committed to environmentalism and marked by an aversion to the use of force”). And, as far as global warming is concerned, which is a real problem about Trump, it’s also very much and demonstrably — not merely in words — a real problem about Hillary too (and one that back in July 2015 before the Party nominees had been chosen, even was courageously reported by some of HuffPo’s own reporters), but HuffPo and other Democratic Party propagandists pretend there’s reason to believe that Trump’s actions would be even worse than hers have been, and HuffPo’s readers thus end up being little else than Democratic Party suckers who feel satisfied in their ‘news’ reading to soak up what is almost entirely Democratic Party propaganda, which means the propaganda emanating out of the White House whenever a Democrat resides there — sort of like a Democratic Party version of the Republican Party’s Fox ‘News’.

The aristocracy (all of it, both its Republican and its Democratic Party branches) continue their campaign, and expect to crush their opposition — the public (of all parties). And that’s what a close look at the evidence shows explains Trump’s win — not bigotry on the part of the American public. Bigotry is a huge problem in every society, but especially amongst the aristocracy, who love to pretend that it’s mainly a problem ‘down below’ — so that they can continue to exploit the public while claiming to be superior to it. That’s the Big Lie, which Obama and the Clintons — and Huffington Post — promote and get paid very well to promote.

Their campaign never ends. Only the personnel do.

    Good stuff Mr. Zuesse. Your integrity is wonderful.

  • cstahnke

    HuffPosts sucks big-time. It is a corporate owned mainstream outlet aimed at the left side of the chumpertariat. I used to read it now I totally ignore it–a waste of time. Basically it is another sportier version of the Daily Kos.

    “They pretend Trump’s win is a victory for bigots, instead of a defeat for the aristocracy (‘Wall Street’, ‘The Establishment’, or America’s billionaires and their agents such as lobbyists and the leading politicians).

    Pleeeeese Eric, Trump is every bit an ‘Establishment” candidate HRC was/is. His choice for VP proves it and when his cabinet is selected you and everyone else will see. Say hello to the new boss same as the old boss. Move along move along nothing to see here.

    • Kansas_Voter

      “Trump is every bit an ‘Establishment” candidate HRC was/is.”

      That’s probably 100% true, but politics is about perceptions, and Trump is perceived as an outsider (just look at how many elite republicans wouldn’t back him or that supported his opponent) and Clinton was seen as a D.C. insider. This is a quote from Robert Reich (former member of President Clinton’s cabinet) from last fall, but it still holds a lot of truth:

      “Last fall, when on book tour in the nation’s heartland, I kept finding people trying to make up their minds in the upcoming election between Sanders and Trump. They saw one or the other as their champion: Sanders the “political revolutionary” who’d reclaim power from the privileged few; Trump, the authoritarian strongman who’d wrest power back from an establishment that’s usurped it.

      …and this is from an op-ed from Thomas Frank (author of “What’s The Matter With Kansas?”):

      “But she was exactly the wrong candidate for this angry, populist moment. An insider when the country was screaming for an outsider. A technocrat who offered fine-tuning when the country wanted to take a sledgehammer to the machine.”

      • Tannenhouser

        The minority vote got sold out by Obama because of the ‘perception’. Rural America saw right through it. Wonder how they are gonna feel when they are even further sold out by Trump. His choice for VP is only the tip of the establishment iceberg. They have changed nothing, nada, zilch and no ‘revolution’ has occurred and nothing has been smashed with a sledge. Business as usual, move along citizen, nothing to see here.

      • You are informed Kansas_Voter. Well done!

        Jul 23, 2016 Trump Exposes Trump

        In his own words, Donald Trump reveals his hypocrisy about Iraq, immigration, health care, abortion, Libya, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and more.

      Yeah, but Hillary’s looting crowd of parasites are busted up and out of work as they deserve to be. Plus, there are a lot of people who will get to live without the murderess-in-chief on the throne.

      • kimyo

        there are still plenty of parasites left over in the fda, epa, sec, irs……

        • Two Americas

          I certainly look forward to an end to any protection of public lands and the privatization of the national parks, the end of regulations governing pollution and food safety, and a completely unleashed Wall Street. I can almost smell the freedom!

            is it your contention that the fda protects public health? that the sec protects the investor? that the epa is defending the environment?

          • Two Americas

            LOL.

            The public health agencies are not doing their job, so disband them. Sounds like a plan to me.

          • kimyo

            where did i say ‘disband’? my position: remove the parasites. fire the top 500 earners in each agency. the ones who have failed to manage the organization and who use their positions to enrich themselves. like the people running the v.a., steering contracts to their cronies while veterans commit suicide outside of the hospitals meant to serve them.

            Mass protests in several cities against Trump, apparently led by BLM and the Socialist Advantage.

          • 08.08.15 THE EPA ACCIDENTALLY TURNED THIS RIVER TOXIC—AND ORANGE

            SINCE WEDNESDAY MORNING, a ribbon of bright orange water has been making its way down the Animas River southwest of Denver, Colorado. The cause? A million gallons of gunk pouring out of an abandoned century-old mine. The Environmental Protection Agency is already on the scene, though. Because, well, they caused it. Yeah, oops.

            Aug 7, 2015 USA: Drone shows ORANGE Animas River after 1m gallon contamination

            Drone footage shot on Friday revealed how the stretch of the Animas River near Silverton had changed colour, after an estimated one millions gallons of toxic waste from an environmental mine contaminated it. The wastewater, which is rich in heavy metals such as lead and cadmium as well as the poisonous arsenic, was unintentionally released while a team was working at a Gold King Mine entrance.

          • Two Americas

            I am well familiar with that. What is your point? That if we get rid of government there will be no more pollution?

  • Robert McMaster

    HuffPost is disgusting. Legion of Clinton parasites thought they held tickets for looting. They would sweep in and cash out big while crushing jobs, letting Wall St. get away with anything and starting stupid wars. Of course, this entitled-to-be-rich crowd cares less for the death and misery they would cause.

  • David S

    When nobody loves you, it is far easier to blame the fact that you are a woman, black, or something that you cannot change (well, the LGBT, etc. crowd would have you believe otherwise) rather than having to face the reality that your IDEAS, your ATTITUDES, your AGENDA, your promotion of the use of the state’s violence to achieve your ends, are NOT WANTED by others. The idea that “Whitelash” or sexism were the reasons for the rejection of both Obama and Hillary is insulting to ALL BLACKS and ALL WOMEN. While countless black and female CEOs make millions and control billions in assets and income streams, based not on their gender or race, but on their abilities to DELIVER, these race/sex baiters would have us believe that handing the control of the largest economy and most powerful nation on earth over to someone is solely going to be guided by gender and race considerations. How truly sad for these empty suits.

    Those of us on the left (and by that I mean those in opposition to the inverted totalitarian State) need to identify our friends and enemies and HuffPost, Daily Kos, Salon, and all those outlets should be identified as the Corporate/State shills that they are. The real left that believes in class struggle and is against authoritarianism and war needs to take over the left from those who live by political correctness and identity politics. We need to do what we can to create a coalition of people to include many on the alt-right and libertarian movements to work on projects in which we agree.

  • November 9, 2016 Progressives Find ‘White Trash’ More Threatening Tnan Nuclear War

    The American electorate’s preference for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders has established two facts. One is that the majority of the American people do not believe the media presstitutes. The other is that only the “progressives” and “liberals” who inhabit the Atlantic Northeast and Pacific West coasts believe the presstitutes.

    I used to read there too. It changed a few years ago. The site is monitored by feminist trolls and they censor anything that they don’t consider politicly correct. I happened to make a comment about Angelina Jolie’s breast surgery that was met with vile comments from women. All I said was the cancer aspect of her operation was secondary to the breast augmentation she received, she never did have cancer. You’d think I was Hannibal Lecter or something. It doesn’t matter that I was a lifelong democrat and progressive. But this is minor when compared to the overall slant of the policies they now promote. It makes us hate them as much as any other MSM site.
