Cornell West Backs Jill Stein… No One Backs Bernie’s Endorsement of Chilly Hilly

This November, we need change. Yet, we’re tied in a choice between Trump, who’d be a neofascist catastrophe, and Clinton, a neoliberal disaster. That’s why I support Jill Stein. I’m with her… the only progressive woman in the race… because we have to get beyond this lockjaw situation. I have a deep love for my brother Bernie Sanders, but I disagree with him on Hillary Clinton. I don’t think she’d be an “outstanding president”. Her militarism makes the world a less-safe place. Clinton policies of the 1990s generated inequality, mass incarceration, privatisation of schools, and Wall Street domination. There’s also a sense that the Clinton policies helped produce the right-wing populism that we’re seeing now in the country. You think she’s going to come to the rescue? That’s not going to happen.

The American empire is in deep spiritual decline and cultural decay. The level of wealth inequality and environmental degradation is grotesque. The correct response to this is… tell the truth about what’s going on. Bear witness. Be willing to go to jail to fight for justice if need be. When the system is declining, it can bring despair. That’s why Black Lives Matter… and all other young people of all colours who are mobilizing… is a beautiful thing. We’re having a moral and spiritual awakening. It gives us democratic hope. It isn’t about having hope, but being hope. It’s time to move from being spectators, to being actors.

Jill 2016



Bernie’s endorsement of Chilly Hilly backfired. Instead of attracting people to the Whore of Wall Street, it drove people away to back Jill Stein. This is normal and expected. Jill Stein offers a real hope to change the neoliberal hell now regnant. Everyone knows that Chilly Hilly would give head to all of Wall Street and K Street and enable the Military-Industrial Complex (that’s why she may choose the arch-neocon Stavridis as her Veep nominee). You have a real chance to have a real choice to make real change… or you can vote to give the country away to the oligarchs and the Affluent Effluent. If you wonder where that leads, look at the notional “Ukraine” after 25 years of neoliberal anarchy (oh, I’m sorry… that’s called “economic freedom”). Choose wisely… I have. Vote for Jill Stein… give America a future to be proud of… otherwise, Satan laughs if either Hilly or the Chump wins.

One last thing… Hilly is a greedy, narcissistic, and violent grasper-after-power. She employs the like of James Carville (“Drag a 50-dollar bill through a trailer park and see what it attracts”… nice guy, huh?); she has no scruples or inhibitions whatsoever. After all, that UN staffer set to testify against her had an “accident” with a barbell, didn’t he? My belief is that she had her minions threaten Bernie or one of his family or friends (of course, she didn’t do it directly… deniability, kids, deniability).

You have a choice… exercise it.
