The US media doesn't want to talk about it, but Honduras is in the midst of having its election stolen again and the people are pissed. Eight years after the US-funded coup installed a brutally violent puppet state in the impoverished Central American state, hopes that things could turn around are once again being dashed by American electoral interference:
>American ally and incumbent Juan Orlando Hernández was declared the winner Sunday, instantly prompting allegations of election fraud and international concern over the country’s democratic process. Honduras, already plagued with civil unrest in the weeks following the election, is now embroiled in violent protests in which more than 20 people have died.
>Supporters of Hernández’s opponent, Salvador Nasralla, are clearly discouraged by the election process and outcome, and are calling on Honduras to hold a new round of elections. Nasralla himself alleges election fraud, labeling Hernández an “impostor” and warning that Honduras is at risk of a civil war if the election is not redone. The Organization of American States, a prominent global organization, has also expressed concern over the election process and called for a new election.

Honduras is on the verge of returning to the bloody terror of the 80s Cold War thanks to the US.
https://www.ncronline.org/news/opinion/us-policy-perpetuates-violence-honduras
> Longtime observers of Central America will know that since the 1980s, nearly 5,000 officers from Honduras have been trained at the U.S. Army's Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, or WHINSEC, formerly known as the School of the Americas. Graduates of this school hold key positions in the Honduran government and security forces and have been implicated in numerous coups, human rights abuses and suppression of democracy.

>Today, the boogeyman of communism that haunted the region in the 1980s is gone, but the institutions and power centers set up in Honduras decades ago remain entrenched, and now environmental activists and indigenous rights leaders are targeted for threatening the political-economic status quo.

>"We know it's the U.S. that runs Honduras," and it is "co-responsible" for the human rights abuses and fatal shootings following the latest presidential election, says Nasralla — who could very well be the legitimate victor in the presidential election.

>By legitimizing a stolen election, ignoring the rare Organization of American States call for new elections and refusing to condemn the post-election crackdown by the (U.S.-trained) military, the U.S. is again perpetrating violence that ultimately hurts its own self-interest, but, more importantly, continues the oppression of Hondurans.

Democrats aren't leftists. The only main difference between them and republicans is that they acknowledge brown and gay people have economic value.

For goodness sake, the dems' position on how to rebuild the middle class was that people should go back to school and learn how to code, not that housing and food is a human right or that anyone who puts in 40 hours a week deserves a living wage.

dems are still "left" by american political standards. certainly not by global tho, that much i'd agree with.

would it help if i replaced left/right with dems/repubs?

If you don't to be seen as just stirring the partisan pot, you should probably drop the party labels, especially regarding issues like US interventionism in Central America in which the US as a whole has been guilty of since the turn of the 20th Century.

The Obama admin tried to use Honduras as a regional counterweight to Chavez' Venezuela. The Reagan admin used Honduras as a staging ground for the invasion of Nicaragua. Both did so with the help of a congress at least partly controlled by the opposition. Both parties were also complicit in the Banana Wars as well.

So yeah, it does come off as partisan politicking when you frame it as one party's doing or another, when in reality it's just an all around shitty American thing.

Rightists aren't the ones who argue from a position of sympathy with the poor brown victims of American imperialism, you magnificent goofball.

I honestly can't tell if you were intending to use that image ironically or if you really just have no idea what words mean.

ironically. people these days who claim to be "centrist" seem to do so largely because they don't want to admit being right leaning/conservative/republican (eg they voted for trump, figured out they fucked up, but still dont want to admit they fucked up to their political opponents) so they can still be opposed to you but also claim a veneer of neutrality/unbiasedness. glad i could help.

So just to be clear, you still think that the people you chose to argue with are rightists pretending to be centrists.

The people quoting left wing news sources in support of left wingers in Central America. You think those people are secretly right wing. And they're pretending to be centrist by criticising Clinton. You think criticizing Clinton is a centrist move. Because you think Clinton is left wing. And anyone who criticizes her is centrist. But also secretly rightist. Because you think centrists and rightists are critical of US foreign policy. Unlike leftists, who support regime change. Leftists like Clinton.

These are the things you actually believe.

I didn't say "link". But if you insist, the very first link posted in this discusses Clinton's role in this. So whatever point you're trying to make, it seems to be based on a few fundamental misreadings of reality.

Is something wrong with your brain? Nb

>The peaceful protesters held candles, chanted slogans and sang protest music.

So when you said that was "The only anti hillary thing here I see", what you meant by that was "I don't read OP news links and only ctrl-f threads when I get into arguments online".

That kind of sounds like your own personal problem. Also, I still can't tell what your point is supposed to be.
