“A VOTE THAT ISN’T FOR HILLARY IS A VOTE FOR TRUMP!”
…n-no? if someone votes third-party, it’s a vote for a third-party candidate, not for trump. i mean, yeah, we have a fucked-up political system in which it is so greatly defined by a binary choice due to both capitalism and the media that any third-party vote is cast aside, so voting for hillary is important, but this kind of fear-mongering is uncritical and self-aggrandizing for hillary supporters.
also, when i see people talk about how hillary “dragged” trump, all i can think is, that’s great and all, but…this is donald trump we’re talking about, the fascist that comedians and late night talk show hosts love to either use as a punching bag or humanize. i could drag his headless chicken ass across the stage with a shoe-string and that doesn’t automatically imply that what i say or do is of great importance.
