I’m really quite sick of hearing how Hillary is as dangerous as Donald Trump. I’m sick of being told that I’m a sell-out because I’m backing the Democratic Party’s candidate after voting for Bernie Sanders. What world are we living in that progressives are falling over themselves to insult the first woman to ever be the candidate of a major political party, all while knowing what is at risk?
Trevor Noah, in a few short minutes, summed up this threat in a very real way. First, The Daily Show host called out Americans for what can only be assumed to be a frightening form of denial.
Donald Trump is almost like global warming right now. People are trying to deny that it is real. They think it’s something that we can worry about later. But, it is happening right now.
Now, this is not to ignore the fact that there ARE a lot of well-intentioned people concerned about a President Hillary Clinton. The right-wing has done an amazing job with using a witch hunt that has gone on for decades to discredit both Bill and Hillary Clinton. They have held hearing after hearing. They have outright said they continued dead-end investigations to attempt to block Hillary’s run for the presidency.
Yet, Hillary Clinton is at the top of the party now. She IS the Democratic candidate for the President of the United States. This is it. That leaves us two choices: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. That isn’t changing. There will not be any kind of different outcome here.
This is no fantasy world where a third-party rides out of fluffy clouds to save us from ourselves. There is no underdog that will be able to defeat the two major political parties in 102 days. Oh no, that won’t happen and if you think it’s going to, let me kindly request that you please stop blowing rainbows and butterflies up your ass.
It’s. Not. Going. To. Happen.
Trevor Noah boils it down to this:
With Hillary Clinton, worst case scenario, you have a bad president for four years. Right? And, America’s had bad presidents before. You’ll get through it. But, America, you have never had a Donald Trump before.
And, just in case you weren’t clear on what is on the line, he says:
So, to all the people out there considering voting for Trump. I hope you enjoy your vote. Because on days like this you realize, this could be the very last vote you will ever get.
Those who are considering casting a vote for Trump, directly or indirectly, clearly need to have this point hammered home. An authoritarian fascist is fighting for the highest position of our land. If the American people give it to him, they might as well change the title from President of the United States to Dictator of the United States.
