“The Green Party is all about integrity. I didn’t say purity. I said integrity.”
— Ajamu Baraka, Green Party 2016 vice-presidential candidate.
I am afraid. Very afraid.
I fear that Donald Trump will unleash a race war, will empower white mobs packing guns walking the streets of America, will give carte blanche to direct police rule in America’s urban wastelands, will shred what is left of the Social Safety Net that is the only buffer to the deteriorating American economy, and gut what is left of the few civil liberty protections afforded us by the U.S. Constitution.
I fear that Hillary Clinton’s triumphant call for American Exceptionalism (“USA!” “USA!”) will take us to the edge — and over the edge —to nuclear confrontation with Russia, to expanded war in the Middle East, to the Zionist regime in Israel finding a “final solution” to their Palestinian problem, and to shootouts in the South China Sea, as the neocons of both the Republican and Democratic Establishments unite behind her candidacy.
