In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Hillary’s Totalitarian Instincts

Make no mistake. She’s not quite the far-left neohippie President Obama is, but Hillary Clinton is not far behind him in her determination to drive this country toward a government-dominated paradise run by people like her who know what’s best for us and despise the views of the dissenters.

Hillary and ObamaIf Hillary cares deeply about something, if she knows it to be true, if her opponents’ policies seem to be harmful to people – particularly the children – then to disagree is not just wrong, it’s evil. And evil cannot be permitted.

Speaking Tuesday at a CNN “town hall” event, Clinton illustrated this outlook and her hostility to two essential principles of U.S. democracy: free speech, and the protection of minority rights. Not to mention the Second Amendment.

She was talking, of course, about efforts by the riffraff to combat the enlightened thinking of gun control advocates like her.

I think as a teacher or really any parent, what’s been happening with these school shootings should cause everybody to just think hard. I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation. We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.

So she wants a “thoughtful” conversation that DISALLOWS A VIEWPOINT because it’s “terrorizing” others.

There are certain people who could never utter a sentence, even by mistake – which this was not, BTW – that calls for forbidding a group of people from holding even viewpoint. There are others who can indeed say someone must not hold an opinion. And these are the kind of people, like President Obama and like Hillary, who are willing to squash it.

I can only hope my reeducation camp is in a nice location.

This country was founded on the principle freedom of speech. Nothing is more sacrosanct. And while this is a nation of majority rule, it is also one established to protect minority views. That’s actually the bedrock of free speech

President Thomas Jefferson said in hisfirst inaugural address:

All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal laws must protect, and to violate which would be oppression.

Oppression is the instinctual desire of modern liberals. Because when you’re trying to move our untidy world toward paradise on earth, vocal minorities who question the effort to fashion blueprints for our lives are very inconvenient.

And Hillary and her ilk believe that the less they are inconvenienced, the better for us all. So watch out.

    1. Good job. It’s a reminder that Hillary is every bit the Alinsky/tyranical/”do as I say” politician that Obama is. Probably even worse.

          1. She was a high-school Young Republican and “Goldwater Girl” in 1964 but swung to supporting Democrat Eugene McCarthy’s campaign in 1968 and George McGovern’s in 1972.

        1. Yep, she did. In fact, she did an internship with Alinsky, and he was so impressed he offered Hillary a job, but she turned him down to go to Arkansas with Billy.

          1. Scary! And to think she and Bill have their money in trust funds and are millionaires. Typical of the leftist rich. It reminds me of the Soviet Union, Communist China, Eastern Europe and Cuba.

  2. What Hilliary didn’t say: “It didn’t do any good the first time around but I am sure that it will be different this time.”

  3. About that re education camp — do you really think Obama means to leave it empty? Nope. Waiting for his and her “real” enemies.

  4. I have always thought that the central difference between Bill and Hillary Clinton is this: Bill knows he is smarter than most people but does not think, and knows, he is not better than everyone else. Hillary thinks she is smarter and better than everyone else.

  5. I don’t want to think what will happen to this country is this leftist, wicked witch is elected. The one in the W.H. is turning to be a despot, a dictator in his own way.

  6. Keith, I agree with your hilarious ‘only hope’! If we should be so lucky as to both be in the same nice location, perhaps they will allow us to play cards or have a conversation together while we are reeducated!

  7. I wish someone would ask her if her ideas on abortion have evolved like her views on gay marraige now that her daughter is pregnant with her grandchild! Is a child or not?

  10. The difference between the modern “progressive”, and the Khmer Rouge is one of degree alone. The continuum that connects the two is a straight line between two points.
