Thank God I'm Not The Only One...

The Cult of Hillary, the Ultimate Junk Bond
By Manuel García, Jr. - CounterPunch
February 29, 2016

<snip>

Why do so many black Americans support Hillary Clinton? Stockholm Syndrome. They are faithful battered wives. They are yoked to Hillary by co-dependency: “I’ve stuck by you and suffered to do so for so long that you owe me, and I have faith that you will reward me later if I help you reach your goal now.”

In their minds they have no such guarantee from Bernie Sanders (and of course from Hillary such a guarantee is an illusion). It is clear that Bernie Sanders has been successful without being dependent on them up to now. So (again, in their minds) he owes them nothing, and thus cannot be counted on to reward them after the election for their support during it.

What this sad diminished thinking shows is a lack of confident independence, an inability to reason that the best estimator of Bernie Sanders’ future trustworthiness is the consistency of his commitment to their fundamental cause for over half a century.


One has to acknowledge the detestable brilliance of the Wall Street and 1%-ist strategy of political purchase: own Hillary and Obama who in turn have enchained so many proletarian minds to their identity-politics personality cults: Pied Pipers leading their trusting conga lines into the Wall Street abattoir.

If the Democratic Party apparatchiks (the paid minions of the 1%-ist oligarchs) can beat back the hostile-takeover Sanders insurgency of popular and populist democracy, and put Hillary Clinton forward as the party’s champion in the general electoral joust, then President Trump will be inaugurated in January 2017. The Democratic Party apparatchiks are first and foremost fighting to preserve their patronage positions (to hell with the country). A President Trump is no threat to their ambitions, but a nominee Sanders — whether subsequently president or not — would mean that a revolution had occurred in the Democratic Party, and the Obama-Clinton apparatchik gravy-train derailed.

I find it depressing to see so many “regular people” chaining themselves so emotionally and naively to the Hillary personality cult, and feeling so uplifted by this delusion. Perhaps the single biggest weakness of Bernie Sanders campaign is that it relies on there being a sufficient majority of healthy independent minds capable of critical thinking. I sure hope there are.

The Trump and Sanders campaigns are two wings of a general popular revulsion to the corporate-owned apparatchik...

1. Do we have any polls on young black voters?

By young I mean under 50. My hypothesis is that this is more about age gap than race. Bernie is losing the over 65 crowd by huge margins.

Black older voters are most reliable voters. I suspect they make up higher percentage of the black vote than other demos

2. Offensive. I thought there would be no more race baiting

Sad to see you stooping so low. You must be running out of things to cut and paste. Easy to see why minorities don't vote for Bernie

299. DU admins ban a Racist troll .

Mail Message
Reason:
Doubled down on his infamous suggestion that black Democrats have Stockholm Syndrome, by posting an article which included the same suggestion (along with comments calling black Democrats "battered wives". The title of his OP was "Thank God I'm Not The Only One" and he bolded the Stockholm Syndrome comments to make sure everyone knew exactly what he was talking about. The first time he did this it was repeatedly explained to him by many members of this community that his comments were at best highly insensitive and at worst blatantly racist. Rather than learning from that experience he chose to double down.

313. A racist declared by Clinton supporters who would love to ban all Sanders supporters.

 

I find that your failure to even attempt to discuss anything substantive and attempts to bait me into a fight, boring.

So bye bye

361. I doubt there is a list, the admins simply decided based on the post that enough is enough

If I were an admin I would have made that decision even if he would have been a Hillary supporter. In fact I might have gotten rid of him sooner if he supported Hillary; we simply cannot afford to have racists among her supporters. On the other hand if he had not made that post he would still be here.

But on the off chance there is a list, I want to make a recommendation of who should be next: Any person who dares to defend a racist troll.

Do you agree or not with that statement or not? Don't try to evade as you have done above. Don't try to deflect. Don't try to dance around the issue. Just answer the fricking question!

If you don't answer the question it wouldn't be totally unusual for some people to assume that what we have here is just one racist is defending another racist.

Here is what Black Lives Matters said:

“Here's the truth: the Clinton legacy has left our prisons bursting at the seams. Real lives have been destroyed as a result. It is an indisputable fact that millions of Black people were locked up for drug crimes and provided the bodies for the expansion of the prison industry.

The 1994 Crime Bill that she so vigorously defended not only expanded incarceration, but stripped funding for college education from prisoners. The Clinton legacy allowed for policies that prevented anyone convicted of a felony drug offense from receiving food stamps or income assistance. Clinton-led welfare reform fundamentally ripped apart the social safety net.”


“Make no mistake, Hillary Clinton's efforts to push these policies resulted in the continued destruction of Black communities and the swift growth of our mass incarceration crisis.”


Clinton supports tough drug laws, capital punishment, and Prisons For Profits. The AA community support her at their own peril.

Reform was really a code-word for "throw lots of people off needed state and federal benefits until they jump through enough hoops to prove their need is legitimate. Then, let's randomly choose a portion of them (who end up being disproportionately black, even in CT where the majority of benefit recipients are white) and force them to perform menial work in addition to whatever work they already do in order to continue to receive their benefits...we'll claim its teaching occupational skills, apparently such as how to pick up litter on the side of the Berlin Turnpike along with the prisoners on work-release and the kids working off their community service for under-aged drinking."

Furtherance of their center-right bullshit to reform welfare and pseudo-criminalize poverty...exploitation and claims they shared pain they were causing. That's what Bill and Hillary do.

Time is a limited resource. Wasting it on refuting the claim that blacks have Stockholm Syndrome and that's why they are voting for Clinton is the intellectual equivalent of claiming the earth is 6,000 years old. The people who believe that aren't going to change their mind just because inconvenient facts are pointed out. For example, if blacks are so incapable of not blindly following Clinton, please explain what stronger mind control Obama used, because obviously black voters just aren't capable of deciding things on their own.

I get that it's disheartening that your preferred candidate is losing, but the original post is just utter garbage. It's pathetic to see such grasping at any straws, but really this shouldn't be allowed here.

But I'm fine with having it remain. It shows the true character of those supporting it. That there is no low that won't be sunk to.

38. When the right wing makes comments..

about PoC being 'slaves' on the Democratic Plantation, or Democrats incapacitate blacks by giving them free things — welfare, food stamps and the like--and so on, you know the comments. We get pissed, and rightly so.

An entire group of people is insulted as if they're unable to think and do for themselves. Like they're completely dependent and beholden on the Democratic Party--that is why they vote for us rather than them.

It should draw our ire. We should be angry. An entire voting block insulted and demeaned. That's not okay.

Stockholm Syndrome? Cult personality? Yes, it's in the same vein.

So, no, you're not alone. But instead of being angry at these words, you along with others are celebrating them. As if there's some victory in using the same language that we once found offensive.

Personal attack.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Mar 18, 2016, 07:01 AM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I have no tolerance for comments from some who are determined to label people as racist....it seems there is a lot of projection going on.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Considering the post he is responding to I think this post should be left alone.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Perfectly valid statement of opinion and observation.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Uhm, don't see the personal attack, he called the post racist(which it is), not the poster. Learn the difference.

I believe that we black folk have been victimized by racism of all types for so long that we end up "settling" in being victims, instead of finding a way to rise above it - which is hard, but better than settling. This is where the Clintons come in. All they have to do is involve themselves to what everyday black folk enjoys, and once he/she fall for their -the Clintons- pace, they got you. That fucking prick, Phil Bryant, did the exact same thing by visiting a black church some years ago, and went to BB kings funeral years later. Knowing that BB King had diabetes, he still refuse to expand Medicaid. After they get what they wanted out of us, they'll fuck us up cold, and we won't even know it, until it's too late.

146. Are you using "key words"?

I find it depressing to see so many “regular people” chaining themselves so emotionally and naively to the Hillary personality cult, and feeling so uplifted by this delusion. Perhaps the single biggest weakness of Bernie Sanders campaign is that it relies on there being a sufficient majority of healthy independent minds capable of critical thinking. I sure hope there are.


Are "regular people" another name for "Archie Bunker/white/priviledged" people?

Are "healthy independent minds capable of critical thinking" a reference to "white/majority/male" people?

Are the immigrants, women, minority too "emotional" and not capable of "critical thinking".

This seems like a racist rationalization to me - both in the original article and in the OP narrative.
There are also people who hide racism and use convoluted logic to put others down, ignore the real values of others, and assume that their own self-centered thinking must be "right".

171. That is exactly what it looks like to me.

About once a week, the story goes, a poster called WillyT on DU wanders down to his local pub, where he has deep conversations with the locals about how Bernie will save all the white people. Then WillyT wanders home and posts another OP on DU. The purpose of these OPs is known only to himself, but no matter what WillyT himself thinks (I'm using a little deconstructionist theory here, Bernie would be proud, down with the white male dominated literary theory of the mid-century.... Wait. Bernie might not like that after all, but I digress....) it's clear to his readers that WillyT derives no small satisfaction from the thought that his posts might hurt, upset, or depress any black people who might still be reading on DU. This week Willy had some revenge in mind as well - posters who had been silenced by himself and his buddies were now back on DU, allowed to say anything they wanted. Uppity talk. That needed to be shut down.

The post is revealed! As always, ithere are citations from Willy's library of sources.... The crowd, restlessly waiting in the predawn hours of Friday morning, quickly and enthusiastically responds. Rec, rec, rec. Willy's telling it like it is again! Willy will put "those people" in their places. How dare they vote for Hillary when they've been told to vote for Bernie?! And lots of other things are muttered....

tl;dr

Grab the white sheets! We ride at midnight.

190. I don't know if it is Stockholm syndrome. But something must account for voters who support her

despite the fact that she will not do shit for them if it cost her billionaire friends even $1. Sure, if it's free and not too inconvenient then she might put down her champagne glass long enough to occasionally make some supportive sounding but vague and vacuous statement. But money is only for the rich. The little people get all the lip service they can stomach.

"If the Democratic Party ... can beat back the ... Sanders insurgency ... then President Trump will be inaugurated in January 2017. ... A President Trump is no threat to their ambitions, but a nominee Sanders ... would mean that a ... the Obama-Clinton ... gravy-train derailed."

That's it in a nutshell. They would rather have Trump than Bernie. And they might get their way.

It's not that hillary is a perfect candidate, Bernie he has a problem verbalizing a winning message to bring more people into the democratic party. That in turn, would translate into his campaigne winning more popular votes and more delegates.

Then he would have no need to care about supper delegates.

251. God the rerun and recycle crowd around here even reruns the foulest bombs of the past season

 

To the OP: You should not be on DU you are a repeat caster of bait. You are not the only one, there are others who do the same thing exclusively to LGBT while you target LGBT along with your leading focus on smearing African Americans. Like those who only post 'about' LGBT issues when they use those issues for their own straight agendas, your posts are often an aggressive form of exploitation and never are they advocacy for anyone but yourself.

Ironically, when Hillary praised Reagan on AIDS I thought instantly of you because you are the only DUer I have ever seen speak fondly of Dutch and Nancy, and I have given you a hard time about that because Ron and Nancy were racist and homophobic villains. You as a Hillary hater share with her the very quality I dislike most about her. You both dig Ron and Nancy and I see them as Mr and Mrs Death.

284. I sort of thought my post would be hidden but I've been calling that ratfucker out for months and

 

my hope is that those who do the flip side of his show get the same treatment soon.

I want to say that in spite of spending a great deal of effort calling him out, many Hillary supporters have tried to hang his 'Stockholm' thread on me and other Bernie supporters. I point out my strenuous objections an the fact that he targeted LGBT as well as African Americans and that is never, ever acknowledged. I was not the only Bernie supporter being very critical of that OP. Several of us were. And I never got one word of support, much less thanks and I have been accused of being part of that shit several times and that's not cool and not even close to fair.

I think using him to define 'Bernie supporters' is basically the same sort of rhetorical wrong he engaged in. I think many, many persons did that. I object to them as I did to him.

252. Haven't we had enough of this "Stockholm syndrome" BS? It's a desperate attempt to trivialize....

....the fact that people haven't jumped on the Sanders bandwagon - there has to be some innate psychological/personality flaw that prevents them from supporting Sanders.

That is NOT true. I just wish this stuff would cease.

"Why do so many black Americans support Hillary Clinton? Stockholm Syndrome."

Elijah Cummings is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome?
John Lewis is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome?

All the AA organizations that have endorsed and support Hillary Clinton are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome?

This has reached the point of being offensive and insulting.

285. It feels like an early Christmas!

Thanks to EarlG!

His reason for banning:

Mar 18, 2016 Doubled down on his infamous suggestion that black Democrats have Stockholm Syndrome, by posting an article which included the same suggestion (along with comments calling black Democrats "battered wives". The title of his OP was "Thank God I'm Not The Only One" and he bolded the Stockholm Syndrome comments to make sure everyone knew exactly what he was talking about. The first time he did this it was repeatedly explained to him by many members of this community that his comments were at best highly insensitive and at worst blatantly racist. Rather than learning from that experience he chose to double down.
