Hillary Clinton's Race to Blame Race
She claims even impeachment "won't remove white supremacy and extremism from America."
The Left thrives on stoking division and hatred, so as you might imagine, it’s high times for politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, and world-champion rhetorical bomb thrower Hillary Clinton. Yeah, she’s back.
The former co-president, senator, secretary of state, and Democrat presidential nominee sounded off this week in an op-ed in The Washington Post in which she shared her thoughts on what to do about Donald Trump and America’s white supremacist problem. Of course, in crafting her opinion piece, Clinton made two major assumptions that are categorically false. One, nobody is asking, “What Would Hillary Do?” And two, America does not have a white supremacy problem.
Clinton’s op-ed calls on the incoming Biden administration to hold social media platforms “accountable” to stop the spread of hate speech, which is increasingly being defined to mean any speech that does not foster the groupthink message of the Left. Clinton would also like to see more state and federal laws to hold white supremacists “accountable” as well.
What does accountable mean in this context? Knowing Hillary “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy” Clinton from her long and storied career, it means labeling any individual and any organization that does not toe the party line as a violent threat to the country. This is an age-old tactic of the socialist Left, a political movement that can only advance its agenda by discrediting its opponents’ viewpoint because its own ideology cannot stand up to logical scrutiny. The tool of the trade for the American Left is racism, and it is the prism through which the modern Democrat Party sees — or at least wants you to see — the world.
Clinton’s screed is a textbook example of this, repeating the long-since-debunked claim that Trump called white supremacists in Charlottesville “very fine people.” She also throws in an endorsement of the latest woke reading, a book entitled Caste that is part of a long list of ivory-tower reading that seeks to further stoke the flames of division in America. Clinton uses a question posed in the book to make the cognitive leap that the mob that breached the Capitol building last week chose “whiteness” over democracy. This was a claim repeated by Nancy Pelosi this week.
Race is no longer simply a buzzword among woke leftists. It is the modus operandi for everything Democrats do. President-elect Joe Biden, once labeled an old white racist by the woman who later became his running mate, is proof positive of the modern Demo outlook. He brags repeatedly about the racial and ethnic diversity of his cabinet, which is all the media seems to care about, but he doesn’t seem to have given much thought to the qualifications of his new team. But he has given thought to prioritizing minority rights and advancing the concept of equity, the new Democrat buzzword that essentially means equality of outcome. In other words, be prepared for more social engineering designed to upend the American concept of fairness and justice.
As Martin Luther King Jr.‘s birthday approaches, it would be good to reflect on the civil rights icon’s legacy. His dream was of a nation in which a person would be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. The Democrats have all but killed that dream, flipping it on its end for the sole purpose of seizing and maintaining power over the citizenry. Hillary Clinton has been at the forefront of that disgraceful effort. In the parlance of the Left, it’s time for Americans to take the power back.
