OK, I’ve read enough. Race, economic messaging, rural backlash, apathy, analysis day and night, down my street and up your block. Most pundits and analysts have now concluded that Hillary Clinton lost a winnable race because of what she said and did.
That conclusion completely ignores the avalanche of carefully orchestrated fraudulent “news” that filled millions of people’s Facebook feeds and Twitter re-tweets. 2016 was the first election in which social media was manipulated to create a completely fraudulent reality. In that falseness, amplified by Wikileaks, Comey, and Russian propagandists working covertly, Hillary was about to be indicted, had FBI agents killed, was running child pedophilia rings, was about to die, had dementia, etc ad nauseam. Couple this with the nationwide voter suppression operations run by republicans controlling red states and virtually ignored by the corporate media (whose only interest was “the horse race”) and you have your the answer to “How could she lose?”
Until the massive propaganda operation that brainwashed millions of easily swayed (aka stupid) Americans is accounted for, any other analysis is pointless.
