    "...Putting another Clinton in the White House will fan the flames of this right-wing extremism. We have known that for a long time ever since Nazi Germany..."

    ...The key to unraveling this stream of gibberish is to begin with the sentence “We have known that for a long time ever since Nazi Germany.” What exactly have we known? It is hard to say... (lolol)

    ...In fact, the one time in American history a Clinton held the White House, it did not lead to fascism. True, it did lead to a Republican administration, but it wouldn’t have if it weren’t for, among many factors, a Green Party candidate who siphoned off enough votes...

    ...Alternatively, Stein might be referring to the previous sentence — the thing we have known since Nazi Germany is not that Clinton presidencies lead to fascism, but that “The answer to neofascism is stopping neoliberalism.” This, however, is also a strange conclusion to draw. The crisis in Weimar Germany had many causes, but one of them was the Communist Party’s insistence on destroying the Social Democrats. Because the Communists would not support any center-left government coalition, it was impossible to form a parliamentary majority without the Nazis. So whatever lessons about left-wing political strategy we should draw from the Nazi era, “withhold votes from the mainstream party that is the only viable alternative to the far right” is definitely not one of them....

    ...What’s most fascinating is that Stein does not try to downplay the danger of a Trump presidency... (but) ...concludes that she must “stand up to”.... the only candidate who can prevent Donald Trump from winning the presidency,

    "Stop Trump by electing him" ?
    I'm baffled why anyone would be dumb enough to vote for this loon.
    She's also anti-vaccine. What a total nut job.
