Still on the Election
What I liked about Bernie Sanders was that he never claimed the victim status. He was the only one among the leading candidates who resisted the temptation. We didn’t hear how he was a victim of antisemitism, ageism, foreign powers, powerless foreigners, or prejudice against balding men.
In the meantime, Trump pouted like he was competing for the position of the campus leader of “We Are Oppressed by Life” student organization. And Hillary made herself look ridiculous claiming she was a victim of sexism when sexism was the reason she had become the establishment candidate. I still supported her over Bernie, as everybody here knows, but she reminds me of union-busting factory owners who claim to be Marxist.
In the end, we had to choose between two very wealthy people who competed for victim status.
