William Blum on Why He’d Vote for Trump over Hillary

I’ve posted up very many pieces attacking Donald Trump, who’s now looking increasingly certain to take the Republican nomination. Trump is a monster – a racist, extremely right-wing misogynist, who appeals to White Supremacists and racist, and stirs up violence and thuggery at his rallies. Blum in his Anti-Empire Report No. 144, states that if he was absolutely forced, and couldn’t escape from America, he’d vote for Trump over Hillary. Trump’s obnoxious, but Hillary is an arch-imperialist responsible for the destruction of two nations, Libya and Honduras. If the US did not sponsor the coup that overthrew Manuel Zelaya, Hillary did not nothing to punish it, and indeed states that she wanted elections introduced as soon as possible so that the coup’s outcome would be rendered ‘moot’.
She also wants to send American troops into to overthrow Assad in Syria.

She’s also barely liberal. She has received $675,000 for speeches she gave to Wall street, and has strong Neo-Con support. Bruce Bartlett, a policy advisor to Ronald Reagan, has written a piece in the Republican National Review urging Republicans to vote for Hillary rather than Trump. And Eliot Cohen, a veteran of George Dubya’s state department, has described her as ‘the lesser of two evils by a wide margin’. Cohen is one of the instigators of the Republican ‘Dump Trump’ campaign.

And way back in the 1980s, Hillary was a supporter of the Contras in Nicaragua, who were responsible for many horrific atrocities in their campaign against the Sandinistas.
