Why Hillary is So Beatable

This morning the pro-Hillary New York Times calls on Clinton to release the transcripts of her speeches to the big banks, "Mrs. Clinton, Show Voters Those Transcripts." This comes a day after video of Black Lives Matter protester Ashley Williams confronting Hillary at a tony Charleston fundraising soiree with a piece of cloth reading "WE HAVE TO BRING THEM TO HEEL" (a quote from Hillary's 1996 "super-predator" speech) went viral.

Look at Adam Johnson's AlterNet post "Black Lives Matter Activist Confronts Clinton About Racially Charged Remarks Because the Corporate Media Won't" for an immediate visceral understanding of why Hillary is the establishment's candidate of choice -- not Rubio, not the "suspended" Jeb Bush, not Ted Cruz.

Hillary is the personification of everything rancid in a political system controlled by the wealthy for the wealthy to the detriment of working people and the planet.

The hashtag #WhichHillary began trending yesterday as people saw the video. Naked Capitalism's Yves Smith points out that Twitter "apparently expunged from the 'trending' list" #WhichHillary.

This is the story of Hillary 2016. We all know that she is a sickening corpse. The problem is that the people in power want her to lead us.

It's not over yet. There is still hope. Young Ashley Williams will inspire many more activists. The transcripts of Hillary's Goldman groveling will hopefully find there way to the public.
