This is Black Agenda Radio, a weekly hour of African American political thought and action. Hillary Clinton’s supporters having been whipping up a hysteria, claiming that Donald Trump is such a dangerous fascist, that progressives cannot afford to vote their consciences and support Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka, of the Green Party. But Black Agenda Report’s Glen Ford told activists of the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition, in Atlanta, last week, that the world may not survive a Hillary Clinton in the White House. Ford said Clinton’s proposed “no fly” zone over Syria would lead almost immediately to a war between the United States and Russia, the world’s two nuclear super- powers. And, Glen Ford said Donald Trump isn’t the only candidate with fascist tendencies.The United States claims it is the premiere democracy on the planet, but this country has the lowest voter turnout in the industrialized world. Part of the reason is the U.S. practice of denying the vote to people with felony records. A new study by the Sentencing Project, in Washington, shows that six million Americans have been disenfranchised because of criminal records. According to the Sentencing Project executive director Marc Mauer, only the United States treats ex-felons like non-citizens. Be sure to visit us at BlackAgendaReport.com, where you’ll find a new and provocative issue, each Wednesday.
