Hillary Clinton Is a Monstrous Politician
Ok. I’ve had enough. Let’s speak truthfully about Hillary Clinton:
She voted for the Iraq war and defended that vote for years.
She was a primary driver behind the Libyan war.
She was involved in the cluster-fuck that is Syria.
She was for the “welfare reform” and three strikes laws during her husband’s administration. She actively spoke for them, thus, she is culpable.
She opposes the reinstatement of Glass-Steagall.
She has blamed homeowners for the financial crisis.
Henry Kissinger, a man who has a great deal of responsibility for two genocides was her adviser while she was Secretary of State, and he is her personal friend.
Hillary Clinton supported the Iraq sanctions which killed half a million Iraqi children or so.
She has compared Putin to Hitler.
It is a fact that Clinton is a bad person, who has championed policies which have killed a lot of people, and which have impoverished many others.
No Realpolitik case can be made for these policies: They have clearly made the world a more dangerous place, vastly increasing failed states and terrorism. These policies were unethical both in and of themselves, and massive suffering have been direct results.
I have been told by people who know her that she is a wonderful, concerned friend, and very warm in small groups.
I care about that as much as I do about the fact that Americans thought that George W. Bush was “someone who they wanted to have a beer with.”
Clinton, as a politician, has supported terrible policies. Moreover, she has not learned from these policy failures. For example, after Iraq, she supported Libya.
I am tired of the “lesser evil” argument; but it is not clear to me that Clinton is the lesser evil.
