I think Hillary beat herself. She was hardly ever down in the polls and everyone knew she was dishonest from the get go. She had the backing of Hollywood, Wall St. and D.C. elites as well as all the major news and tech businesses, with the exception of Fox News and Apple. The companies that ran the major search engines ( Microsoft, Google, Yahoo) as well as social media (Twitter, Facebook) were rooting for her. The entertainment industries in TV and music were rooting for her.

Let's not even pretend she was coming into this with any sort of disadvantage. It was basically ordained gospel that she would be the 45th president. But she gave Trump supporters a rallying call with the 'deplorables' statement. The Anti-Defamation League gave them a symbol in banning Pepe the frog. The pundits and celebrities gave them someone to rebel against in asserting what they should consider important. Her defeat was a continuation of the Tea Party movement and rejection of all the labeling and controlling.

The hacked emails leaked by WikiLeaks and publicized by right leaning press kept Trump within striking distance. And since they were not edited I consider it a service even if Russia did it.

Actually trump said that the actual election (votes) were not hacked. The Russians may have hacked the DNC computers but all the things they found about the DNC fixing the primary for Hillary were true. If the DNC didn't want it to become public they should have secured their servers.

As for Russia trying to influence our election, we do it all the time in other countries. Obama just did it in Israel's elections. Releasing the information that they got from the DNC the Russians just shed light on the dishonest tactics used by Democrats.


We are witnessing a strange new form of nationalism in this post that I will now coin as Daddyism

"Who cares if foreign countries molest our democratic process? We do it all the time to everyone else. Seems fair to me."

In Daddyism, nationalism only matters when it is politically convenient for Daddy Fraud. So, if Russia hacks America, it's okay if it's good for Daddy.


>thinking America has had a democracy in years

This shits been happening for years now, now we just know about it.

America has not really had a democracy in 70+ years, you have had neo fascism and cronyism. "b-but im on the left, i fight against it!!" no, you are a useful tool to them.
