The Despicable Desperation Of Hillary Clinton

Filed under: General — Dana @ 7:10 pm

[guest post by Dana]

Say, remember that time Democrats were outraged and hysterical after falsely accusing Scott Walker of comparing the Madison protesters to ISIS earlier this year at CPAC?

It takes a special kind of hubris to stand all puffed-up not just before the simpatico audience at CPAC, but also those watching from a distance online and claim that handling Madison protesters is just like dealing with extremists abroad, but that’s what Scott Walker did during his speech.

Oh, the horror:

There are two entirely different ways to be horrified by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker comparing his battle with state unions to the fight against ISIS.

From the left, you can be disgusted by Walker comparing legal protests by labor unions and their supporters to the barbaric, blood-thirsty terrorism of ISIS.

Yeah, that time.

Well, in a speech today, Hillary Clinton actually did just that. For real. She likened Republican candidates working to defund Planned Parenthood and protect the unborn to terrorist groups. It logically follows that her accusation also includes all Americans fighting the good fight, not just Republican candidates:

“Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States,” Clinton said. “Yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back.”

Two things: Clinton is as utterly contemptible as she is confused. She defends the butchery and barbarity taking place behind the doors of Planned Parenthood as “going forward”, when in fact we know that what takes place behind those closed doors more closely resembles the brutal reality of ISIS in a seventh century nightmare than that of a civilized, life-honoring society.

Second, these are the comments of a candidate who knows she’s in big trouble. While Clinton is still leading the Democratic field, she has dropped 10 points this month. Further, a new Quinnipiac poll revealed that when voters were asked the first word that came to mind when they thought about Hillary Clinton, the majority answered liar, followed by dishonest. No doubt her attacks on Republicans will increase with a renewed vigor and rhetoric focused on portraying the GOP as extremists and out of touch with voters. (Interestingly, she made this speech in the home state of Gov. Kasich, whose job-approval rating is at an all-time high of 61 percent.)

  1. Hello.

    Dana (86e864)

  2. Want to see Hillary’s gears grind?

    Tell her she gains five points in the Gallop poll if she divorces Bill.

    It worked on Gore.

  3. She’s just going thru the motions, counting on all the leftwing fever swampers to continue their dull, lemming-like march to the cliffs.

  4. Being from small-town Ohio (my city has 15,000 people, followed by 40 miles of corn and soybeans before finding a bigger town), I can honestly say most people in my region of the state “do not get into politics”. And it’s a R2W state…

  5. Hillary’s been desperate for some time now, this is just the most recent example. I knew she was on thin ice when she claimed a number of her recently deleted emails were related to her Yoga workouts.

    That two-faced fat ass duckpin hasn’t worked up a sweat since she skipped town one step ahead of the law when Vince Foster’s dead body showed up in Fort Marcy Park. Hillary’s fellow law partner had fresh semen in his shorts, was covered head to toe in carpet fibers, had a bullet hole in his head, and the Secret Service records of who comes and goes from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue strangely failed to note when Foster departed the White House. Also curious was the missing video tape of the parking lot showing when Foster’s car departed and who might have been behind the wheel, since it sure as hell wasn’t Hillary’s boyfriend.

  6. I can’t figure out why the left has so admired or embraced Hillary, now more than ever before. I truly, honestly don’t get it, even with the idea that liberalism is a form of mental illness—which, as each day goes by, is a conclusion that moves further and further away from being purely flippant and sarcastic.

    Mark (dc566c)

  7. As I keep pointing out, most Gallup polls show that less than half of women self-identify as pro-choice.

    How is it “extreme” to oppose something that doesn’t even get a majority?

    bridget (37b281)

  8. By creating the appearance that it’s extreme, people who don’t pay attention and are on the edge decide they don’t want to be extreme, so they decide to join the herd.

    John Hitchcock (c78150)

  9. So, Clinton is a supporter of selective-child policy.

    Elective abortion is indiscriminate killing of a [wholly innocent] human life.

    The pro-choice doctrine of selective principles is degenerate.

  10. As far as I know no republican has flown a plane into a building. She is the ultimate beggar on stage.

  11. Perhaps someone ought to ask the lovely Mrs Clinton why, if everybody now has to have health insurance, and that health insurance must cover contraception, with no chargeable co-payments, Planned Parenthood would even need government subsidies. Shouldn’t the health insurance that everybody has to have be able to pay for all of Planned Parenthood’s “services?”

    The answer, of course, is that the subsidies are a end-run around the Hyde Amendment, a way to get the government to pay for abortions, but Mrs Clinton can’t say that!

    It dates from 1992, and Bill Clinton’s claim that we’d get two for the price of one, as though his darling bride was some kind of asset to this country. The left sort of envisioned a form of co-presidency, in which Mrs Clinton was a major part of every decision, in which she was very much a power behind the throne. The successes of Mr Clinton’s presidency therefore reflect positively on Mrs Clinton, don’t you know? (And you are a white cisheteronormative patriarchist pig is you don’t know that!)

    But we’re finding out, almost every day, that Mrs Clinton is not the politician that her beloved husband is.

  13. …I can’t figure out why the left has so admired or embraced Hillary, now more than ever before.

    Apparently the left has decided what American needs in a 21st century President is a 67 y.o. grandma who was a passive and unwitting recipient of information who doesn’t know how things work digitally.

  14. Zager & Evans predict…

    In the year 2016, if Hillary’s still on the scene
    If Dem prospects remain lean, they’ll be creamed
    In the year 2017
    Ain’t gonna be no cash, no money tree
    Everything they thought, did and said
    Will be buried like your late Uncle Fred
    In the year 2021
    You ain’t gonna have your teeth, won’t need your balls
    You won’t find a gal to do
    Nobody’s gonna wanna look at you

  15. Hillary Clinton / Late-Term Abortion in 2016!

  16. I don’t know that Hillary is a liar, it might just be that she really can’t tell the difference between fact and theory, or gossip, or fiction. After all, to the left “truth” is always in quotes and is always situational. That does make it hard to look around and point at Truth. Or even Fact.

    All those “scientific” studies (as in the social “sciences”) are another symptom of the problem. Turns out they are not very scientific, the methodology and often even the raw data is suspect or manufactured to fit the desired outcome.

    With that as the current norm…

    Oh, you ask, so what’s the difference in practice between being a liar and not being able to recognise fact as fact or truth as truth? Well… The latter mean well!

    You know… paved with good intentions and all that.

    Dan S (da982b)

  17. No, Dan S, Mrs Clinton doesn’t mean well, doesn’t mean well at all. She is interested in only one thing: power.

    The realistic Dana (f6a568)

  18. I’m surprised, or rather I wish I were surprised not to see Clinton called out for her egregious comparison, but in order for that to happen, it would be necessary for the MSM and Democrats to self-expose and remind voters of their lie about Walker as well as admitting they are hypocrites.

    Dana (3cddfd)

  19. Many years ago on Saturday Night Live comedian/writer Buck Henry played Frank Nolan a late night talk radio host trying to get his phones to ring with interested listeners. As time went on they remained silent; he became more and more desperate so he started throwing out topics intended to incite responses along the lines of:

    9 lines available! Call me at 800-555-3310, 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 1-7, 1-8, and 1-9!

    Communism, why not?

    Okay. While you’re thinking about THOSE topics, here are a few others which I, Frank Noland, am personally in favor of:

    Adolf Hitler — Boy, Do We Need Him Now“! Huh? What about that?

    Hey, “Incest — I Practice It, Why Don’t You?” Give me a call. Talk to me about it.

    No Toilets for the Blind”? Call me! Call me, if you’re listening! And, and–

    Frank Noland: How ’bout “Suicide — Fun for the Elderly“?

    I’m thinking Hillary didn’t realize it was a comedy skit, not a political primer…

  20. Home many word salads will the media eat from bill’s wife?

    mg (31009b)

  21. I don’t know, mg. How many BS excuses did they take from Hillary’s! husband? They are leftists and therefore can say and do any damn thing they want as far as the media is concerned.

    Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie (f4eb27)

  22. Boxcar Hilly.

  23. The misery index of campaign clinton has to be reaching a time in which someone dies.

    mg (31009b)

  24. What I find to be most extraordinary about this is that she is doing it this freakin’ early, but even more importantly, she is the one saying it. Usually they leave that level of fire-breathing demagoguery to their campaign staff, MFM shills. It is remarkable that they are so desperate at this stage that the candidate herself is lashing out like this. She has always been a lousy candidate, and this train wreck will only get worse.

    JD (34f761)

  25. corrupt to the bone
    dried-out unquivering quim
    waits for epitaph

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  26. Oh Hillary. Berney Sanders is the social democrat in this race honey.

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  27. bill’s wife has a huge advantage in super delegates. This is why it will take a Tyson head shot to knock her out of the primaries. I hope to see the blow delivered soon. In Ma. bernie is on the rise. And I will vote for him. I despise bill and his wife. A republican primary in Ma. is like kissing your sister.

  28. If politicians (including FDR) didn’t compare their opponents to Communists, Nazis, ISIS, they’d have a lot less to say.

    ErisGuy (76f8a7)

  29. Well, FDR was definitely no shining star, threatening to pack the SCOTUS with his appointees, by making SCOTUS have 15 justices instead of 9, unless SCOTUS bowed down and started declaring his unconstitutional stuff constitutional. FDR was the reason we had a Great Depression, instead of just another short-lived depression.

    John Hitchcock (7279f2)

  30. FDR certainly wasn’t a shining example. He refused to invite Jesse Owens to the WH following the 1936 Olympics. He invited all the white athletes, but refused to invite Jesse Owens or even to congratulate him.

    Jesse Owens observed that Hitler didn’t snub him, but FDR snubbed him.

    Jesse Owens had to wait until a Republican was President, Eisenhower, to get his invitation to the WH.

    Hillary! is just another in a long line of despicable human beings who want the Democratic party’s nomination.

    Steve57 (3b2e7d)

  31. Steve57 that’s just another example of the inherent racism of democrats and yet negroes keep voting for dems. Why? What magical sway or hypnosis do these democrat racists hold over blacks?

    Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie (f4eb27)

  32. She’s talking about superdelegates (that she has 440 of them, or 20% of the number needed to win the nomination, and 130 or so announced) – but, I think on Face the Nation, they are taking that as another sign of trouble.
