The Lumbering Zombie That Is the "Low Enthusiasm" for Hillary Narrative.
I've said it once, or a hundred times, before and now I'll say it again:
Clinton's base of supporters is largely comprised of people of color, white women, LGBTx people, Latinx immigrants, and other marginalized groups.
To consistently disappear us—and our enthusiasm—in service to a narrative that is patently false is some hot garbage.
And it would be bad enough if it was just being done to try to discredit a historic female candidate, but it is being done to try to discredit her in the middle of an election in which her only meaningful competitor is a white supremacist authoritarian patriarch who unapologetically disgorges every shade of bigotry as the centerpiece of his campaign. A person who actively and expressly wants to make our lives worse.
I am filthy angry at the journalists who keep peddling this shit like it's a joke, or like it doesn't matter.
I see you.
