Hillary Clinton Decries Greedy Politicians, Condemns the Right's Violent Ways

Hillary Clinton’s got thoughts about Joe Biden — and you.

Speaking to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Tuesday, she called to “better angels” and offered something undeniably true:

“[W]e all had better be much more sensitive to, understanding and empathic toward each other…”

Such is necessary, she said, “if we’re all gonna get ahead.”

Hillary then confirmed she sees folks as white and nonwhite, and whites must muster most of the aforementioned empathy:

“And that particularly applies to people of color…”

Perplexingly, she then hailed overlooking our differences:

“We’ve had leaders who’ve risen to that occasion, who have certainly done their best, both to inspire us and create the right environment for us to, you know, look past our differences and find our common humanity, our common ground…”

As for splitting all of humanity into two racial groups, it’s a late twist for the 74-year-old — for decades in front of news cameras, she resisted.

Host Rachel referenced a Clinton quote espousing the ideology:

“You said, ‘It is sobering that many people were unsurprised by what occurred last week — meaning January 6th — particularly people of color for whom a violent mob waving Confederate flags and hanging nooses is a familiar sight in American history.'”

Then Maddow let loose tremendous news — you’re savages:

“We have a disturbingly large part of the Right promoting and excusing political violence, while at the same time, they’re trying to discredit our political system and our electoral processes. That combined message from the Right — that politics doesn’t work and that violence is okay — that’s a recipe for disaster. That’s a recipe for the end of democracy. … To me, it doesn’t feel unprecedented. I mean, through the lens of how people have color have lived in this democracy, the rejection of political mechanisms, you know, choosing violence instead of fair political contests, that’s the history of how people of color have been treated in this country over and over and over again. I feel like you’ve been trying to make that point aggressively.”

It’s certainly true that violence is in.

It seems, however, that conservatism has failed to procure the patent:

Hillary also talked of time travel — conservatives want to undo civil rights:

“There is a plot against the country by people who truly wanna turn the clock back. They believe that the progress we’ve made on all kinds of civil rights and human rights — the cultural changes that have taken place — are so deeply threatening that they want to stage a coup. … [T]hat’s truly what is behind Trump and his enablers…”

The former Democratic nominee slammed something she detests — politicians driven by greed, corruption, and a lust for control:

“[Trump and his followers] don’t like the world we’re living in, and they have that in common with autocratic leaders…who are driven by personal power and greed and corruption…”

She pummeled “people who truly just want power, power to impose their views, power to exploit financial advantage…”

So who of virtue can guide us to glory? That’s Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., who — like a healthy colon — has been able to pass things:

“You know, a lot of people got, oh, I think kind of frustrated looking at the messy process of legislation, and they — they didn’t really appreciate that within a year, the Biden administration has passed two major pieces of legislation through both the House and the Senate. They passed another major piece through the House that will soon be in the Senate. By any measure, those are extraordinary accomplishments, and they really will help many millions of Americans with health care and prescription drug prices as well as climate change and so much else.”

She’s right — many haven’t appreciated the President — in 17 states, his approval rating is below 30%:

Still, I’m grateful for anything good he does.

His most monumental accomplishment thus far: freeing us from COVID-19 on July 4th.

The fact that he could manage it on that very day was stunningly impressive.

Amateurs make their shots; professionals call them.

As for Hillary abhorring a drive for money and power, she’s one fortunate lady.

Despite her staunch opposition to such, blessings came nonetheless.

In 1992, the Clintons’ net worth was $700,000.

If you could only buck your barbarism, good karma might come to you, too.
