Hillary Clinton’s recent encouragement for the hatred the left showed for Justice Kavanaugh should remind us all that her version of democracy and the founding fathers is quite different.
Michael Goodwin recently detailed Clinton’s worldview in an op-ed for the New York Post and Fox News. As he put it – Hillary Clinton keeps finding ways to denigrate democracy.
Goodwin along with a number of conservative commentators did not miss how the seminal crisis in American politics, the Kavanaugh hearings, illustrated how much the left in general and Hillary Clinton in specific hate the Federal Republic form of government our democracy is based on.
Clinton showed her disdain for a democracy based on the rule of law when, after Kavanaugh was sworn in, she said Democrats “cannot be civil” as long as Republicans hold the White House and Congress. She told CNN, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we 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.”
For over two years, the left’s biggest cheerleader has led the chorus in accusing President Trump of being a racist, misogynist, disrespectful to the disabled, and an anti-semite whose followers are a bunch of deplorables who are as bad or worse than him.
Clinton instigates our descent into a battle royale over the very meaning of democracy during her final presidential debate with Trump in 2016. As the FBI led the way in shielding her from the full implications of her illegal emails and the making a bogus application for a FISA warrant, Clinton framed Trump as an enemy of democracy. As Clinton railed against Trump for making an offhand comment about illegal votes, she led the way in doing in fact what she accused him of suggesting.
That night in October 2016 is important because it framed the battle we now see on the verge of becoming all-out war today. The New York Times characterized Trump’s response to Clinton back then as “a last-ditch attempt by a fading candidate, Mr. Trump, to save himself.”
The Times saw Clinton as the inevitable next President who would protect the “Obama legacy.” Her closing comments ended with, “I would like to say to everyone watching tonight that I’m reaching out to all Americans, Democrats, Republicans, and independents because we need everybody to help make our country what it should be.”
As Goodwin noted, “two years later, she bears a huge responsibility for the disaster before us.” It was Clinton who first refused to concede, then retreated to the woods for reflection, and returned to claim the election was not won democratically.
In spite of a clear Constitutional mandate that Trump was the duly elected president, Clinton led her supporters to refuse to accept the election’s outcome. Her attack on democracy began with falsified charges of President Trump colluding with the Russians and showed its nexus in the coordinate character assassination of Brett Kavanaugh.
In 2016 Clinton warned that Trump would destroy democracy. Now, in 2018, Robert Mueller has not made one single indictment directly connected to President Trump but he “plods onward, searching for anything that would justify” his existence, all the while ruining the lives of those in his sights.
The Kavanaugh/Ford testimonies were more of the same. Clinton set the stage for the debacle last week with her feigned love of democracy while not-so-secretly fueling the fires of the deep state.
In that context, it is beyond mildly interesting that a former FBI agent reportedly tried to pressure a friend of Christine Blasey Ford into changing her sworn statement to the Senate so it would support Ford’s charges against Judge Kavanaugh. And one of Ford’s lawyers happens to be the lawyer for the fired former deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe.
Now Clinton nods in approval while the “resistance” continues to try and tear America apart. If you want to know where they learned how to act like petulant brats because the election didn’t go their way, you only have to look as far as Hillary Clinton.
