As usual with the elites and their functionaries, they miss the truth.
This is Brexit Redux:
It's not a "stunning upset," as NYT says. It's elites' continued failure to understand the trauma people experienced during and after 2008.— Nicole Gelinas (@nicolegelinas) November 9, 2016
And just so we can get the "The Greens did this!" bullshit out of the way:
Take Jill Stein out of the equation, Trump still wins. Hillary get's MI and WI, but not PA, FL, OH. Anyone telling you others is uninformed pic.twitter.com/Xj1jY9tXX5— Benjamin Dixon (@TheBpDShow) November 9, 2016
And anyone saying Gary Johnson voters would have ever voted for Clinton has never met libertarians. Run from their commentary. Run quickly— Benjamin Dixon (@TheBpDShow) November 9, 2016
Clinton shills did a lot of mocking this year, first the Sanders people during the primary, then the Trump supporters during the general.
One thing Clinton and her shills never did - try and understand the real pain and terror many in this country feel over their economic futures.
A lot of those people sent a big "Fuck You!" to the elites last night, though I think that will come back to bite them in the end.
A Republican president with a Republican Senate and a Republican House is going to do a lot of damage in the short term.
Add in all the crazies Trump is sure to bring along - Rudy, Christie, maybe Palin - and it's even worse.
As for the Supreme Court, that strategy Obama pursued doesn't look so hot now either - the chance to transform the Supreme Court is now lost to Dems.
Remember that union case that ended up 4-4 after Scalia died?
You can bet another case like that one is going to rear sooner rather than later and those automatic dues the union elites lap up will go out the window with Clinton's electoral map to victory.
It's going to be a very tough few years.
The "Fuck you!" sent last night, as with the one the British sent with Brexit, is going to be a costly one in the end.
But I blame Dem elites for this mess - this loss is squarely on HRC and her neoliberal cohorts.
This ought to be a wake-up call to Dem elites that neoliberalism must go and the party needs to embrace a true populist agenda.
But I'm under no illusions that Dem elites will learn the correct lessons from this.
They'll continue with the elite circle jerk and furiously blame "Bernie Bros" or Greens or "deplorables" instead of looking into the mirror and saying "Why have we embraced neo-liberalism, bringing about the de-industrialization of the country, the financialization of the economy and Trump to the White House?"
