“And here’s what that means to you, the class of 2017. You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason.” – Hillary Clinton this past week
At election time this last November 67% of voters did not think Hillary was “honest and trustworthy.” 62% did not think Trump was “honest and trustworthy.” Hillary was considered less trustworthy and honest than Trump! You do grasp how difficult an achievement it is to be considered less honest and trustworthy than Donald Trump don’t you? The Washington Post of all publications actually said, “Today, it is the American people who have been burned, time and again, by Hillary Clinton’s dreadful lies.”
When you are the Democrat candidate for President and the Washington Post calls you a dreadful liar – it is unimaginably bad.
My point in this is not that Hillary is a habitual liar – that is well known and beyond dispute. Trump lies all the time too. My point to this is the obtuseness required for someone such as Hillary to make a commencement speech claiming “You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason” after having spent thirty plus years building a career and fortune by lying and assaulting reason. As I said here and here – the Democrats simply do not get this. The lies, the disingenuousness, the fraud, the hypocrisy has hit a level where even Donald Trump appears to be a desirable alternative.
Democrat Party: “Who can we get in front of a camera to call Trump a liar and untrustworthy? I know, let us get quite possibly the only person in the country considered less honest and trustworthy than Trump! That is the trick, that will do it!”
Obtuseness has become the primary character trait of the Left. The Left exist in something akin to ‘Opposite World.’
“We oppose enriching the 1% so we are going to adopt and support policies that transfer trillions of dollars from the poor and middle class to the 1%.”
“We oppose the bombing and killing of innocent people in the middle east so we will bomb and kill innocent people in the middle east each and every day that Obama is in office and Hillary and Bernie will promise to continue that!”
“We oppose the evil corporations so we will pass laws requiring you to purchase the products of the corporations that we hate and fine you if you do not purchase those products and guarantee the corporations a profit made on the backs of the poor and middle class! That is how much we hate those evil corporations!”
Hillary Clinton saying, “there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason” simply adds exclamation points to the hypocrisy.
It is very much as Kunstler said, “Sometime societies just collectively go insane.” I am unaware of any other viable explanation for the phenomena. To add to the insanity – the Democrat Party has essentially adopted a campaign motif proclaiming “Trump lies more than we do!” as though the voters will somehow find that a compelling argument to cast votes for Democrats.
According to Webster’s Dictionary:
1.Not pointed or acute; blunt; – applied esp. to angles greater than a right angle, or containing more than ninety degrees.
2.Not having acute sensibility or perceptions; not alert, especially to the feelings of others; dull; stupid; as, obtuse senses.
3.Dull; deadened; as, obtuse sound.
The rational people in Democrat Party are without doubt searching high and low in order to discover someone, somewhere who can carry the water for them who is also not a known crook and liar – and they are failing miserably at finding that person. Due to the entire Democrat Party platform being premised on the right to steal from the poor and middle class and give to the wealthy it is entirely possible that they will never find that person. The entire political argument in the United States has come down to if you support the Democrat Party transferring wealth to the 1% or if you oppose it. This is why you have a President Trump and if you do not yet grasp this is the reason you have a President Trump then you will continue to occupy a fictional universe.
Let’s see how long it takes them to figure that out…
