“This November, we need change. Yet we are tied in a choice between Trump, who would be a neo-fascist catastrophe, and Clinton, a neo-liberal disaster. That’s why I am supporting Jill Stein.”
West, the renowned scholar and revolutionary, published an op-ed in The Guardian on Thursday in which he slammed the presidential candidates from both major parties, Hillary Clinton and #Donald Trump, and instead endorsed Jill Stein, the presidential candidate for the #Green Party.
Hillary staunchly supported and lobbied for President Bill Clinton’s initiatives to axe welfare, pass tough-on-crime laws, pave the pathway for the privatization of prisons, implement the neoliberal trade deal NAFTA and deregulate Wall Street.
“There is also a sense that the Clinton policies helped produce the right-wing populism that we’re seeing now in the country,” West added. “And we think she’s going to come to the rescue? That’s not going to happen.”
