A Journey Through the Upside-Down

Sweet fancy Moses, the stuff you can find on Twitter. What kind of kartoffelkopf do you have to be to believe that the reason Hillary! lost is because the MSM spent all their time ginning up hatred against her because they wanted the Republican to win?

Peter Daou was a Hillary advisor during her '08 campaign. Not sure why he wasn't working for her this time around, but who knows? Anyway, the crush he had on her back then is just as strong as ever. About a week ago, he finally reached his breaking point, and lashed out with a epic tweetstorm of unhinged lunacy that gets close to the Eichenwald absolute.

Below is how it starts out, and I cut and pasted the text from the rest of the tweets to save space. So come along with me and savor the crazy. And the butthurt. But mostly-- well actually, I don't know which one is more predominant, but here we go into the fever swamp. I trust everyone has had their shots, and make sure your mosquito netting is firmly in place:

2. Hillary Clinton has been aggressively vetted and formally investigated (by Republicans) for decades. NO WRONGDOING HAS EVER BEEN FOUND.

3. But Hillary receives more hate, more rage, more fury than serial killers or child murderers. TRUMP IS PRESIDENT BECAUSE OF HILLARY HATE.

4. The hatred for Hillary is wildly disproportional to the facts of her life. Disconnected from reality. She has SAVED CHILDREN'S LIVES.

5. Male politicians who voted for the same policies are given a pass, but she is labeled a murderer for her national security-related votes.

6. Hillary's haters drop a word like "Benghazi" as though it conjures instant evildoing. But endless investigations have exonerated her.

7. The same people who shout "Benghazi" are completely silent on Trump's Yemen raid, which tragically cost many innocent lives.

9. When Hillary earns money, it's "corruption." When other (male) politicians do, it's success. An absolutely vicious double standard.

10. Once again, I repeat: HILLARY CLINTON HAS NEVER BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF WRONGDOING. And her haters will NEVER admit that basic truth.

11. Here's where Trump comes in. Hillary was being vilified by the media, by the right, and by the left BEFORE Trump was a candidate.

12. Before Trump ran, Hillary was being slammed by pundits with terms like "imperious, paranoid, petulant, devious." (link to article by the author which is really quite unhinged)

13. FACT: No matter WHO ran against Hillary, the 2016 election was going to be about demonizing her to the point where she couldn't win.

14. The news media spent SIX HUNDRED CONSECUTIVE DAYS on Hillary's emails. No Trump story, however egregious, got even one tenth the focus.

15. The 2016 election was about the destruction of Hillary Clinton's reputation. The great travesty is that Team Sanders played a huge role.

16. Bernie spent 2015 on an uplifting, positive, progressive message. Encouraging & exciting. Then he pivoted hard negative against Hillary.

17. I chronicled every attack, every TV appearance by Tad Devine and Jeff Weaver calling Hillary corrupt and evil. It was brutal and unjust.

18. Sanders/Stein supporters threw dollar bills at her in the street, one of the most repugnant political spectacles in American history.

19. Meanwhile, the corporate media treated Hillary with dripping disdain while celebrating the ratings Trump's antics got them. Disgraceful.

20. The result of this Hillary-bashing was that by the general election, her public image was severely damaged. Trump just surfed the hate.

21. Given the choice between a hated man and a (wrongly) hated woman, the man wins every time. WE ARE NOT BEYOND GENDER BIAS IN AMERICA.

22. The immense disproportionality in who Hillary is and how she is perceived is also the hallmark of the Trump presidency. Skewed reality.

23. If everything seems topsy-turvy, if right seems wrong and up seems down, you can trace it back to the merciless vilification of Hillary.

24. When a lifelong public servant devoted to the rights of women and children can be seen as a devil-monster-witch, reality is lost.

25. Acknowledging and rejecting the mangling of Hillary's public image by the media, the right and the left is key to dealing with Trump.

26. Hillary's bashers yell that I should "move on" and that it's ALL HER FAULT. She's "flawed." She skipped Wisconsin. Empty talking points.

27. If we quietly accept the unfair, unjust and too often sexist assault on Hillary's character, we are embracing "alternative reality."

28. The original problem, the root cause of our dilemma, is the character assassination of Hillary in 2016. Trump is just a by-product.

29. Every single time we fight the lies and smears against Hillary, we are fighting to regain our grip on truth, on facts, on decency.

30. Dislike her, disagree with her. But to despise her more than the worst people on the planet is UNACCEPTABLE. I, for one, won't forget.


Whew! Did we lose anyone? Good. Step over to your right for your mandatory fungal disinfectant shower, and see the doctor on your way out for some booster shots and antibiotics.
