As we continue to slowly crawl toward next week’s midterm elections, there is little doubt that we will witness an exaggerated and exponential increase in the amount of vitriolic and dangerous hyperbole that we see in the media.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton couldn’t wait that long to push her divisive rhetoric, however.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the Republicans’ “crazy violent hate rhetoric” was a “threat to the heart of our democracy.”
Clinton said, “There always been a streak of violence, of racism, misogyny, antisemitism, as you said, but I think what we’re seeing today, and it has certainly been thrown into very high relief by the horrific attack on Paul Pelosi, is not just an aberration where one or two people or a small group engage in that kind of violent rhetoric and urge people to take action against political figures like her, like me, like others, we’re seeing a whole political party.”
And that wasn’t all:
“The level of just plain crazy violent hate rhetoric coming out of Republicans. You played something from the candidate, the Republican candidate for governor in Arizona. I want viewers. I want voters to stop and ask themselves, would we trust somebody who is stirring up these violent feelings, who is pointing fingers, scapegoating, making a joke about a violent attack on Paul Pelosi.”
Clinton then continued, parroting Biden and suggesting that the MAGA movement was “a threat to the heart of our democracy”.
