This is the most self congratulatory and self righteous piece I have ever read. However, these positions are incredibly understandable given your position for Hillary.
Hannah Arendt wrote, “[T]hose who choose the lesser evil forget very quickly that they chose evil…. Acceptance of lesser evils is consciously used in conditioning the government officials and the population at large to the acceptance of evil as such.”
Your argument buried somewhere in your defamatory remarks of a group of passionate people critical to the balance of democracy is that you support the lesser evil, Hillary. That is certainly your choice and constitutional right. However, what you’re missing is that Stein supporters will be important to keeping Hillary in check once she takes office which there is no doubt in my my mind she will. Those who voted for Stein will be the most ardent spokespersons for change and will continue to challenge the status quo which Hillary seeks to protect. A blank check vote for Hillary dismissing Stein would be incredibly caustic and give Hillary an incorrect notion of where the American people stand — with Her. They don’t stand with Her, they are merely casting their own protest vote against Trump.
When you are done vilifying Stein supporters, perhaps you start embracing them because your/our future hangs in the balance.
