I recently switched my streaming movie service to Hulu, having gotten fed up with failure of Netflix to provide anything new in months (aside from the cheapest, most awful movies they could buy). So I've been viewing all manner of things on Hulu and while they serve commercials, it's not too bad. Until I noticed a disturbing facet to this advertising.
Alex Sink, Democrat candidate in Florida, is being savaged by commercials paid for by the anti-American Republicans. There is no counter-commercial to support her, and no commercial illuminating the gross fascism and anti-American activities of the Tea Party GOP candidate. Of course this is distressing, but I have come to accept it.
Once again, Democrats are choosing not to fight back. They are more than happy to allow the fascists to win Florida again. You can't tell me this is because they don't have the money, that's bullsh*t. I can't believe they lack funding to produce such a commercial. All they have to do is put it out there and tell the truth. What is so hard about that? It's hard when they don't want to win. It's hard when the Democratic party is actually a conservative shill of corporate interests that do not want Americans to get a better deal. They have it all in the right-to-work state of Florida, and they are not going to help the Democrats do anything that could make a difference. The truth in this speaks out very clearly when they select not to fight such messaging which will poison the electorate in favor of the fascist GOP.
Once again I am sickened by the weakness of cowardice of Democrats. Of course I'll vote for them - there's no other choice in the current mess of politics (please, don't tell me to throw my vote down the garbage chute by going third party or to go with the stealth-fascist Libertarians). Thanks Democrats. You still haven't got a clue.
