Exposing Facts About Fanatical ‘Pro-Bernie Sanders’ Blogger H.A. Goodman (HRC GP)

If you followed the Democratic primary at all, odds are you’ve seen at least one article written by a person named H.A. Goodman. Over the last year, Goodman has spammed the Internet with around 156 articles (I actually went through his archives and counted them) and several videos, either “in support” of Sanders or bashing Clinton. That averages out to 13 a month, every single month — on one subject. And by one subject, I mean one subject. Looking through his archives from June 2015-June 2016, I saw maybe 4 or 5 (if that) articles where he wrote about something that didn’t pertain to Sanders or Clinton. As a writer myself, I find that absolutely ridiculous.

Especially from someone who considers himself a “liberal” or a “progressive” who didn’t seem to find the need to cover Donald Trump much at all. One would think that, even as “pro-Bernie” as Goodman claims he is, he might have found it important to call out Trump’s belittling of veterans; sexism; racism; bigotry; calls to ban all Muslims; or to address anything one of the most vile candidates in modern U.S. history has said and done over that same 12-month timespan.

Either way, I do think it’s valid to question the true “pro-Sanders” roots of H.A. Goodman. You see, I also looked at the archives of everything else he’s written and not one time prior to April 29, 2015 did Mr. Goodman write an article about Bernie Sanders. Most people who followed politics knew for weeks (if not months) before Bernie Sanders officially announced, that he was probably going to run for president. Meanwhile, H.A. Goodman was promoting practically everyone but Bernie Sanders as an effective challenger to Clinton. Here are a few of the headlines he wrote before April 29, 2015:

Why Martin O’Malley and Elizabeth Warren Can Beat Any Republican, Including Walker, Bush, Paul and Cruz (March 25, 2015)
The Answer to Hillary Clinton’s ‘Emailgate’: Vote Senator Elizabeth Warren in 2016 (March 6, 2015)
Why Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire Should Choose Jim Webb Over Hillary Clinton (April 21, 2015)
How O’Malley, Warren and Webb can save Democrats from Clinton (April 16, 2015)
Why Americans should consider O’Malley for President (April 1, 2015)
5 Reasons Liberals Tired of War Should Vote for Rand Paul Over Hillary Clinton (November 21, 2014)
I’m a Liberal Democrat. I’m Voting for Rand Paul in 2016. Here is Why. (November 17, 2014)
Why President Rand Paul Will Keep America Safer Than Bush, Obama and Hillary Clinton (November 13, 2014)


Now, maybe it’s just me, but I find it a little peculiar that this Bernie superfan, of sorts, somehow seemed to want a whole lot of other people to challenge Hillary Clinton — but Sanders. I mean, Jim Webb? Rand Paul? Before he ever mentioned Sanders’ name once, he pushed for an actual Republican to be our next president and a former Republican as well — yet not a whisper of Bernie Sanders’ was anywhere to be found. That seems rather odd.

4. When I found out Salon was paying for his content, I stopped reading Salon.

 

Salon lost its mind, and credibility, to Clinton Derangement Syndrome this year.

5. There have been rumors that "HA Goodman" is a team of writers.

Looking at the sheer number of articles, this seems fairly believable.

His twitter comments sound like a ten-year-old wrote them. Not that the articles are any better, but it doesn't even sound like the same person.

7. I had no idea that he looked like that until a month or two ago.

I had read some of his blather on Salon and excerpts here on DU, but I had no idea until very late in the campaign that he was basically a manic, balding, twenty-something who looks like he should be in the next incarnation of Friday the 13th.

Everything made a lot more sense after that. Well, not his writing. lol

This morning, he said that Jill Stein is the most powerful woman in American politics. That might just top them all.

10. Thanks for this information, HS!

You always post the most interesting facts!

The three pro-Rand-Paul articles from 2014 are perhaps the most telling. If anything, Goodman seems to be a Libertarian who will always support ANY GOPer over a Dem. IMO, he was pushing Bernie as the last best chance to defeat Hillary, but would very likely have shown his true colors if Bernie had become the nominee.

This year, however, Gary Johnson is a credible Libertarian candidate and appears to be polling at 7% nationally. That is much worse news for Trump than Jill Stein and the Greens will ever be for Hillary. That said, NO COMPLACENCY must be the meme for those of us who support HRC.
