This, people are too fucking retarded to handle the volume of information readily available on the internet and ease with which it can be misleadingly framed. There is no mechanism for negative repercussions for intentionally deceiving people and people are extremely vulnerable to emotionalism and feeling like they are accessing knowledge authorities don't want them to know about - propaganda has become a planet spanning cottage industry and effective strategies for deploying it are common knowledge at this point (and it still fucking works because people are too fucking lazy to employ critical thinking and do external research).

Wow these are some really horrible lies
>easily won election two times in a row
He only won the first election thanks to Perot splitting the vote, an election Perot could have won because he was the populist candidate, but instead he tanked his open election by mysteriously "dropping out" half way through before returning. Clinton was by no means populist he was a globalist elitst the same as HW bush, in fact he was much worse
>His popularity even only increased after the Lewinsky scandal
Because the economy had yet to see the effects of his actions (admitting China to the WTO, NAFTA< deregulation of finance, etc) all this came to a head much later in the 2001 and 2008 recessions.
>He came from an ordinary American background as a southern every-man
His background was "corrupt Arkansas politician" if anything
>as "le creepy rapist" and "basically a Republican",
He was, though it's hard to find one way he was different from a Republican especially on economic issues he was more of a Reaganite than HW Bush.

There is an entire political party that doesn't even believe in enforcing border law, whereas back then both parties paid it lip service. There used to be a large number of anti abortion democratic politicians. Now even the ostensible Catholics aren't ant abortion.

What do these changes have to do with the internet?

The same thing that partly happened to Hillary. Revisionism about what happened in the 90s

Donald Trump brought a bunch of women who had accused Bill of sexual harassment and made Democrats look like hypocrites for getting on his case. With his likability shattered, all he had left to fall back on was his policy record, which everybody and their mother knew was just a bunch of neoliberal compromises that ultimately did more harm than good.

it's so odd how normoids seem to have a more positive perception of him than Bush II now. Objectively Clinton was so much better overall, and the general public didn't even bother to dispute this in the 2000s so what the fuck happened. And I would say I'm certainly biased towards the GOP in general but Clinton was still a good leader of this country overall objectively, and Bush II was an utter trainwreck, shits weird man I don't get it

If not for anything related to Vietnam and Watergate, he'd be one of the best presidents.

Uberwealthy Republicans donors love cheap, disenfranchised labor, if you think that Democrats are the only problem on immigration you’re kidding yourself. But the internet has accelerated a trend towards populism.

Also, only Christcucks give a rat’s ass about crack whores aborting their rapebabies, and the internet has accelerated the slide of Christcuckery into irrelevance

Liberal Catholics have always been a thing. 100 hundred years ago Catholics in first world countries were rolling their eyes at the churches opposition to contraceptives. Now nobody gives a single flying fuck about contraceptives except Christcucks still desperately trying to win converts in the world’s poorest 3rd world shitholes.

I read that was about contraceptives being ineffective with various social reasons
>regular polygamy
>"You bringing a condom because you don't trust me?"
And other reasons for people to avoid using them when presented.

Almost all of his policies turned out to be bad

>deregulating financial industry, leading to 2008 crash
>signing Iraq Liberation Act, leading to disastrous war
>deregulating telecommunications, leading to FOX/CNN partisan shitshow
>backing Yeltsin blindly without pushing for any kind of accountability or actual democratic reform, leading to rise of Putin

And it goes on and on.

Everyone has job related insurance here. You want shitty government insurance instead? Okay. Enjoy the lowest quality of healthcare in the county. You can get the doctors we send homeless people to for absolutely free.
