Bernie Sanders supporter Susan Sarandon went on MSNBC with Chris Hayes and explained why a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for the “status quo.” In addition to citing a litany of leftist causes, including fracking and the minimum wage, Sarandon criticized Hillary for sidling up to arch globalist and notorious war criminal Henry Kissinger.
“I don’t like the fact she talks about Henry Kissinger as her go-to guy for the stuff that’s happened in Libya,” said Sarandon. “I don’t think it’s good.”
Clinton and her husband are close to the Rockefeller counselor and confidante Kissinger—the couple winter with the former secretary of state and Nixon national security advisor at the beachfront villa of fashion designer Oscar de la Renta in the Dominican Republic.
“I know Hillary as a person. And as a personal friend, I would say yes, she’d be a good president,” Kissinger said in 2014. “But she’d put me under a great conflict of interest if she were a candidate, because I tend to support the Republicans… Yes, I’d be comfortable with her as the president.”
Kissinger has lavished praise on his protege. “I’ve known her for many years now, and I respect her intellect,” he said. “And she ran the State Department in the most effective way that I’ve ever seen.”
“I listen to a wide variety of voices that have expertise in various areas,” Clinton said after Bernie Sanders announced if elected he wouldn’t have anything to do with Kissinger.
Hillary Clinton has publicly displayed her admiration for the Council on Foreign Relations as well, although Sarandon did not mention this.
“I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department,” she said in 2009 after the CFR opened a branch office in Washington.
“We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future,” she added.
Kissinger and the CFR—and the Trilateral Commission, all representatives of the financial elite—tell presidents and other insiders not what they should do, but what they will do.
Democrats Will Vote for Clinton
Sarandon and the outsider Democrats favoring Sanders will vote for Clinton despite her deep and obvious link to the global elite. In fact, according to the actress, when Clinton wins the nomination the Vermont socialist turned Democrat will encourage his supporters to vote for her.
According to the actress, when Clinton wins the nomination the Vermont socialist turned Democrat will encourage his supporters to vote for Clinton in November to beat the Republican nominee, assumed to be Donald Trump.
“I think Bernie would probably encourage people to [support Hillary if he loses] because he doesn’t have any ego in this thing,” Sarandon said. “But I think a lot of people are, ‘sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Hillary].'”
“How about you personally,” Hayes asked.
“I don’t know. I’m going to see what happens.”
The DNC, the party insiders, the super delegates will make certain Clinton is the nominee. They will instruct Sanders to turn his voters over to Clinton. It does not matter if Trump is robbed of the nomination. Democrats continually play the same false left-right paradigm card and it works like a charm.
The argument is invariable: evil Republicans will give the country to the “rich” (in fact, the country was handed over to the mega-rich, bankers and transnational corporations, years ago) and women, minimum wage workers and minorities will suffer. Clinton might not be perfect will be the argument, but she is better than Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney or whatever Republican is selected to run against Henry Kissinger’s close friend and protege.
The argument will be that Clinton might not be perfect, but she is better than whatever Republican is selected to run against Henry Kissinger’s close friend and protege.
Left out of the discussion is the fact there is very little difference between any of the candidates on crucial policy issues.
