The leftist press is praising Hillary’s “destruction” of Donald Trump and the alt-right via her Reno, Nevada speech yesterday. For example, read what Slate had to say in praise of our former First Lady’s slander.
Since the leftist press is not to be trusted, here’s a different angle from an alternative source:
Excerpt from Daily Wire
Thursday, Hillary Clinton gave one of the most cynical, hypocritical, pandering and clever political speeches in recent memory. Targeting the so-called alt-right, a conglomeration of disaffected paleoconservatives, white supremacists, and anti-SJW hangers-on, Clinton simultaneously linked the alt-right to Trump and separated it from traditional conservatism. It was smart politics. It was also unlikely to move the needle very much in a race already so polarized that few Americans either believe Hillary Clinton or like Donald Trump.
3. Hillary’s Deeply Hypocritical In Suddenly Singing The Praises of Conservative Figures. Hillary dropped this incredible litany in the middle of her speech:
Twenty years ago, when Bob Dole accepted the Republican nomination, he pointed to the exits and told any racists in the Party to get out. The week after 9/11, George W. Bush went to a mosque and declared for everyone to hear that Muslims “love America just as much as I do.” In 2008, John McCain told his own supporters they were wrong about the man he was trying to defeat. Senator McCain made sure they knew – Barack Obama is an American citizen and “a decent person.” We need that kind of leadership again.
Hillary doesn’t get to say this. She and her husband destroyed Bob Dole as a human being. She routinely savaged George W. Bush. Her party ripped apart John McCain. And this year, Hillary declared Republicans her enemies. The only good Republicans are the ones in her memory.
4. Hillary’s Own Associations With Racism Are Disgusting. Hillary ripped Trump for being sued by the Justice Department for alleged racism in rental properties, for being fined by state regulators for allegedly “removing black dealers from the floor” of his casino, and for doubting Obama’s place of birth. This neglects the fact that Hillary’s own campaign was responsible for purveying the birther rumor in 2008. Hillary also associates with race-baiters like Al Sharpton, and panders to the racist Black Lives Matter movement, which has called for divestment from Israel (calling Israel an “apartheid state” in the process), and stokes racial divisions on the basis of criminals like Michael Brown being rightly shot. Hillary has thrown her own husband’s successful crime policies overboard to pander to BLM; meanwhile, BLM allies riot in Ferguson, Baltimore, and Milwaukee. Just because the media have mainstreamed BLM doesn’t mean they’re not a racial solidarity movement. And when Hillary attempts to say that there’s no history of a mainstream nominee ever stoking racism, someone ought to ask her about Democrats ranging from George Wallace to Woodrow Wilson. Someone ought to remind her of the 1924 Klanbake – the Democratic National Convention.
5. Democrats Have Cried Wolf On Racism So Often That This Won’t Help Them Much. Hillary led off her speech calling Trump a racist and a race-baiter with the same sort of hackneyed misinterpretation Americans have come to expect from Democrats. Joe Biden once said that eminently non-racist, classy Mitt Romney wanted to put people back in chains; it doesn’t go very far when Hillary calls Trump racist for telling black people that they live in poverty and without proper education and home ownership – particularly when Democrats tell black Americans the same thing routinely. Hearing Hillary talk up the “vibrancy of black-owned businesses…or the strength of the black church” is ridiculous, since we know that if Trump said the exact same thing, she’d label him – wait for it – an out-of-touch racist. Trump pointed this out before the speech, and he’s right, at least in that respect.
