Preposterous (adjective): contrary to nature, reason or common sense; utterly absurd or ridiculous.
In an interview with Christiane Amanpour (the wife of James Rubin, a former Clinton administration official), Hillary Clinton said that Democrats cannot be civil unless and until they retake the House and/or Senate in the upcoming midterm elections.
Clinton stated: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for. I believe if we are fortunate enough to take back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”
An extraordinary admission, that. Democrats shouldn’t and/or can’t be civil unless they are winning. I guess magnanimity is out of the question when you think you know better than your enemies, history be damned. Or when you are simply starved for power and control.
Mrs. Clinton accused Republicans of committing political crimes, and of spreading “falsehoods” and “lies” about her. Like calling her a liar? The Clintons are to lying and deception as FDR was to fireside chats. They are the masters of the craft. If there was a Mount Rushmore for prevaricators, they would be the first two faces carved into it.
Hillary blamed Mitch McConnell and Donald trump for tainting the Supreme Court confirmation process. If one were to use modern-day Democratic rhetoric, this is akin to the Gestapo blaming Jews for not being fully supportive of the Holocaust.
Clinton also labeled the GOP an “ideological party driven by a lust for power.” Holy crap! Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! That is a nearly perfect definition of today’s Democratic Party. Or should I say, Democratic-Socialist party, many of whose members are involved in doxxing, shouting at, harassing and otherwise threatening Republicans and their supporters. Susan Collins requires a police escort. Rand Paul’s wife sleeps with a loaded gun next to her bed. Maxine Waters has publicly, vehemently called for increased harassment of those with whom she disagrees. Numerous leftist “educators” have called for the assassination of Trump and the destruction of his supporters.
But, hey, who could expect Democrats to be civil unless they were winning the Second American Civil War?
