Hillary Clinton, loser of the presidential election, has been captured by the media in recent days commenting on the rising hysteria from the left over Donald Trump’s win – but instead of using her platform to ease tensions, she’s gone the other way and actually stoked flames.
Specifically, she’s pointed to both gay and Muslim communities appeared to commiserate with them – as if there were something to fear from a Trump administration.
The Hill has the story:
“In a speech thanking her staff Friday night, Hillary Clinton said she has spoken to Americans who feel ‘scared’ in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidential victory.
“‘Today, I heard from one of the people I met who lives in fear of her parents being deported and she’s scared to death that it’s going to happen,’ Clinton said, according to Fast Company.
“‘I heard from a young man I’ve known for a very long time, who is gay, and he said, ‘What’s going to happen to me? And what’s going to happen to my friends?’ I’ve heard from countless women who know that the rights we’ve fought for for so long are on the line,’ she added.”
What kind of message does this send?
To Clinton and her ilk, it’s like Trump will now dismantle and destroy all civil rights, upset equality between men and women, target gays and Muslims for prosecution and personal vendetta, and basically rule by tyrannical force, not law. It’s ridiculous enough that the far left’s post-election mantra has been one of fear and terror over made-up notions about what Trump stands for and what he doesn’t stand for. But note to Clinton: Trump is a president – not a king. It’s not like he can run the country by, say, a pen and cell phone, absent Congress and the courts.
Oh wait … my bad. That’s President Obama … But perhaps that’s what the left fears – that Trump will adopt the unlawful actions of Obama and use them to the right’s advantage.
Clinton certainly is trying to keep that from happening, using the one tool that works best for the left – fear.
From the Hill again:
“The campaign held a goodbye party Friday at the New York Marriott in Brooklyn, where her campaign headquarters had been located.
“The former Secretary of State was met with a long applause from her staff, who held ‘Thank you’ signs in the air, according to the report. Clinton reiterated that the fight was not over, despite the election loss.
“‘We can’t just throw up our hands and walk away from these fights,’ she said.”
