Politics is divisive enough without getting insulting. But at some point, it’s hard not to just draw the line and call it as you see it.
In this case, Hillary Clinton recently tweeted this: “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.”
If this doesn’t prove that Hillary Clinton thinks we’re all idiots, I don’t know what else can. (Although, to her credit, there are people supporting her presidential run, so I guess Hillary is at least partially right.)
This is the woman who was in charge of discrediting and destroying the reputations of the several women who claimed her husband had sexually assaulted or raped them.
But in my view, this isn’t really about Hillary Clinton. It’s about my absolute refusal to be taken for a fool. There are few things I fear more than being taken for granted and treated like a fool. That’s not to say it hasn’t happened, but I try very hard to avoid it.
In the case of the Clintons, they’ve always operated under the premise that the American public, and their supporters, in particular, are fools. And you’d have to think that to send out the tweet she sent while Monica Lewinsky is still out there. I’m not even sure why Hillary would even offer such a comment, unsolicited.
And only a few weeks earlier, she complained that we must “reign in the excesses of capitalism.” This from the person who’s made millions of dollars on speaking engagements and playing the stock market in ways seasoned veteran have never been able to do.
It was the Clintons who perfected an ideology based on projection – accusing your opponents of being exactly what you are.
I’ve always been an optimist when it comes to the people of this country, and I just can’t see how she’ll even come close to winning the 2016 election. But I guess we shall see.
