Lifelong Feminist Carmen Paglia Slams Hypocrite Hillary Clinton And Her 'Liberal' Supporters
submitted by Helena HankartAs long ago as 2008, this blog's p[redecessor, Little Nicky Machiavelli, was acerbically ridiculing the cult like followers of Barack Obama, people who did not seem to care about the alleged homosexual prostitution he used as a means to fund his youthful cocaine habit allegedly, the life membership he held to a Chicago all - male bath house (dens of gay promiscuity our American friends tell us), the criminal associates, the fact that to 'great scholar and constitutional law expert' who had ordered his educational reports and all public records relating to his early life be sealed so voters could not examine them, or about the very dubious circumstances surrounding his paternity and birth. All the cult members seemed to care about was the colour of Obama's skin. It was identity politics on speed. Eight years later the same is happening. This time 'the anointed one' Hillary Rohham Clinton is even less qualified and more enmired in numerous scandals than Barack Obama. And yet once again the world's greatest nation is being dragged through the mud because the cultish support that has put Mrs. Clinton within sight of The White House does not seem to care that for a hunred and one reasons Mrs. Clinton is not a fit person to hold public office (not just the highest public office but any public office), all they are about is that she is a woman and supports Gay BLT causes like the right of chicks with dicks to use womens' toilet facilities. So repugnant is Mrs. Clinton to thinking people that the lifelong feminist and lineral Camille Paglia has launched an astoundingly virulent attack on the candidate and her followers.
Hillary Clinton's standard response when challenged on her incompetence, malfeasance or criminality - she gives the impression of truly believing she and her fellow elitists are above the law.
Camille Paglia – “Enough with the Hillary Cult”by Michael Krieger Reposted brom Liberty Blitzkrieg April 22, 2016
We’re going to war — either hybrid in nature to break the Russian state back to its 1990s subordination, or a hot war (which will destroy our country). Our citizens should know this, but they don’t because our media is dumbed down in its “Pravda”-like support for our “respectable,” highly aggressive government. We are being led, as C. Wright Mills said in the 1950s, by a government full of “crackpot realists: in the name of realism they’ve constructed a paranoid reality all their own.” Our media has credited Hillary Clinton with wonderful foreign policy experience, unlike Trump, without really noting the results of her power-mongering. She’s comparable to Bill Clinton’s choice of Cold War crackpot Madeleine Albright as one of the worst Secretary of States we’ve had since … Condi Rice? Albright boasted, “If we have to use force it is because we are America; we are the indispensable nation. We stand tall and we see further than other countries into the future.”
Hillary’s record includes supporting the barbaric “contras” against the Nicaraguan people in the 1980s, supporting the NATO bombing of the former Yugoslavia, supporting the ongoing Bush-Iraq War, the ongoing Afghan mess, and as Secretary of State the destruction of the secular state of Libya, the military coup in Honduras, and the present attempt at “regime change” in Syria. Every one of these situations has resulted in more extremism, more chaos in the world, and more danger to our country. Next will be the borders of Russia, China, and Iran. Look at the viciousness of her recent AIPAC speech (don’t say you haven’t been warned). Can we really bear to watch as Clinton “takes our alliance [with Israel] to the next level”? Where is our sense of proportion? Cannot the media, at the least, call her out on this extremism? The problem, I think, is this political miasma of “correctness” that dominates American thinking (i.e. Trump is extreme, therefore Hillary is not).
I’ve really enjoyed reading Camille Paglia this election season, and I find her to be one of the most astute cultural and political observers in America today. She also happens to be a wordsmith.
What follows are a few choice excerpts from her latest masterpiece, Enough With the Hillary Cult: Her Admirers Ignore Reality, Dream of Worshipping a Queen:
What is it with the Hillary cult?
As a lifelong Democrat who will be enthusiastically voting for Bernie Sanders in next week’s Pennsylvania primary, I have trouble understanding the fuzzy rosy filter through which Hillary fans see their champion. So much must be overlooked or discounted—from Hillary’s compulsive money-lust and her brazen indifference to normal rules to her conspiratorial use of shadowy surrogates and her sociopathic shape-shifting in policy positions for momentary expedience.
Hillary’s breathtaking lack of concrete achievements or even minimal initiatives over her long public career doesn’t faze her admirers a whit. They have a religious conviction of her essential goodness and blame her blank track record on diabolical sexist obstructionists. When at last week’s debate Hillary crassly blamed President Obama for the disastrous Libyan incursion that she had pushed him into, her acolytes hardly noticed. They don’t give a damn about international affairs—all that matters is transgender bathrooms and instant access to abortion.
The protective major media phalanx around Hillary certainly extends to her health issues, which only the Drudge Report has had the courage to flag. In assessing possible future occupants of the White House, the public has an inalienable right to know. I was incredulous at the passive gullibility of the media, including the New York Times, last July, when a woman internist, identified as Hillary’s doctor, released a summary letter about her health that was lacking in the specifics one would normally expect in medical records. Does anyone really think that world-renowned Hillary, whose main residence for years has been in Washington and not Chappaqua, has as her primary physician an obscure young internist in Mount Kisco, New York? It’s ludicrous on the face of it.
And what about that persistent cough? “Allergy season,” the hacking Hillary claimed on a New York radio show this week. (“You all right? Any mouth to mouth CPR?” joked a host.) I’m just a Ph.D., not an M.D., but I’ll put my Miss Marple hat on here. Am I the only one who noticed Hillary’s high-wrap collar, pallid, puffy face, and bulging eyes during her choleric New Hampshire primary concession speech in February? (Another unusually high collar followed the next morning.)
My tentative theory is that Hillary may have sporadic flare-ups of goiter, worsened under stress. Coughing is a symptom. High collars mask a swollen throat. In serious cases, an operation may be necessary. Is this chronic thyroid condition disqualifying in a presidential candidate? Certainly not in my view, but I don’t like being lied to—by candidates, campaign staffs, or their media sycophants.
