Dems 'Cannot Be Civil,' Says Mob Boss Clinton

"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about."

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Hillary Clinton, who’s never been civil, insisted Tuesday. “That’s why I believe, if [Democrats] are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was critically wounded by a Bernie Sanders supporter last year, responded, “Seriously, Hillary?” Rand Paul, who was shot at on the same ball field and who was severely beaten by a neighbor, warned, “I fear that there’s going to be an assassination. I really worry that somebody is going to be killed, and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation … they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence.”

Bill and Hillary have led the Clinton Machine for the last 30 years, specializing in the “politics of personal destruction.” Now, bitterness about her defeat in 2016 seems to dominate her every public statement. Indeed, the entire Democrat Party is still fomenting anger over Donald Trump’s victory. “I want to stop the degrading of the Rule of Law [and] the delegitimizing of elections,” Clinton said. She’s done nothing but degrade Rule of Law over her entire career, and it is Democrats who’ve used the “Russia collusion” narrative to delegitimize Trump’s election.

As for civility, that’s an even bigger problem these days. All of America witnessed the screaming hordes mobbing the very halls of Congress over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. And it was Democrats, by the way, who gave those protesters access to the Capitol Building. That in itself is an underreported scandal.

Worse, Leftmedia reporting is practically mocking the very idea of an angry mob. A sampling of this week’s headlines:

  • “An angry mob”: Republicans work to recast Democratic protests as out-of-control anarchy —The Washington Post
  • Republicans have a new name for Democrats: “mob.” —CNN
  • The GOP’s sneaky attempt to paint the majority as an angry left-wing mob —The Week
  • Republicans Seize On Stoking Fears Of Left-Leaning Mob To Mobilize Voters —Talking Points Memo
  • Republicans: Protesters Are an Unruly Mob — Unless They’re Heavily Armed and Support Us —New York magazine

See, “angry mob” is just a GOP election slogan. Nothing to see here.

But when Maxine Waters is yelling to supporters to chase Trump administration officials out of restaurants, Cory Booker is telling people to “get up in the face of some congresspeople” (echoing Barack Obama’s instruction to “argue with them and get in their face”), Eric Holder is saying “we kick them” about Republicans, and Clinton is saying Democrats can’t help be uncivil with evil, racist, sexist, rapist-supporting Republicans, we think Rand Paul’s warning has some merit.

The New York Post’s Michael Goodwin says, “There you have it — a declaration of war and a license for violence. Where is the media outrage? Clinton knows we are already in the danger zone when it comes to the political temperature. Her comments, then, are as reckless as bringing a can of gasoline to a bonfire.”

As a final thought, has there ever been someone who more often projects her own faults and practices onto her opponents?

Clinton said, “I remember what they did to me for 25 years — the falsehoods, the lies, which unfortunately people believe because the Republicans have put a lot of time, money, and effort in promoting them. So when you’re dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding … you can be civil, but you can’t overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections.”

Falsehoods and lies? Check. Promoting them with money, time, and corporate interests? Check. Lust for power? Check. Government to do an ideological party’s bidding? Check. Hillary Clinton checks off every box on which she accuses Republicans. We’re still thankful voters saw through it in 2016, and we hope the same holds true in 2018.
