She’s smarter than Trump, and speaks in complete sentences, but Hillary Clinton has the same tendency to say things that are totally insensitive and offensive. She can’t help it, it seems. Like a weird form of Tourettes.
It’s bad enough that her book sucks. Not like sucks a little bit, is a bit below the standards of Stephen King or John Grisham, but full-blooded, pro-actively sucks. (I’m talking about the pony page. Even when the book is actually released, I don’t intend to read it. Maybe a few years down the road, when the book is in a box with a hand printed label saying “All books, 5 kč.”)
But today, while promoting it, she invoked the name of Heather Heyer, who was murdered less than a month ago while standing up to neo-Nazis in Charlottesville. Heather Heyer was not a Clinton supporter. She was a Bernie supporter, and we have it from her mother that she didn’t vote for Hillary in the general.
Here’s the quote: “I have been thinking lately about bravery – the bravery of citizens like Heather Heyer who lost her life fighting the organized forces of hate and divisiveness, of volunteers who are rescuing strangers in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and of young DACA recipients who are fighting for their future in the only country they know and love.”
So much wrong in that statement. First, Hillary, you may have been thinking a lot about bravery, but we’ve seen precious little of it throughout your political career. It’s nice, I suppose, that she mentioned the Dreamers, who may well be totally screwed if Trump gets away with what he wants to do, but we need to remember that Hillary was against DACA before she was for it.
Then, there’s the mention of Heyer. This reminds me very much of her comment in the late stages of the 2008 primary race, which she lost to Barack Obama, and people were urging her to back out, and she had no intention of backing out. “We all remember what happened in July of ’68.” Well, if any of you reading this DON”T remember ’68, that’s when Bobby Kennedy was assassinated. So, she was effectively saying she was staying in the race in case Obama got killed.
Because she’s got no class at all, or human empathy. And she insists on constantly reminding us of this fact.
