Democrats have become tone-deaf with their statements and their consistency with past statements. Whether it be Vice President Kamala Harris tweeting about the infrastructure bill that was passed while people were stuck for almost 30 hours on I-95 or President Joe Biden’s statement about former President Donald Trump taking responsibility for deaths from COVID-19 and then having record numbers when he takes office, there’s a divide between what Democrats say and what they’ve said before. It’s almost as if they’re saying whatever they have to appease the public.
Hillary Clinton has done the same thing. When Clinton defended her husband against physical assault allegations by attacking his accusers and then said believe all women, it didn’t sit well with many people.
Clinton tweeted, “MLK Jr. Said: ‘I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that law and order exist to establish justice and that when they fail in this purpose, they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.’ It is a subtweet.”
Law and order exist, and the white moderate desperately wants law and order to come back to where it was before.
If Clinton suggests that the radical right-wing doesn’t want law and order because of some anti-democrat stance, she’s wrong. The right typically loves the police and backs them because they understand they need them. The request will also demonize federal law enforcement because they go after conservatives and leave Democrats alone. Then, there’s the conservative view of small government. When the government is small, things can get taken care of on a low level rather than exploiting a minor incident.
Why does Clinton think there’s a push back on federal election laws? State-run elections can be specific to the needs of the state. Each state does things a little bit differently based on the needs of their citizens like it should be. New York City does things differently than Salt Lake City, Utah, does things differently than Asheville, North Carolina, and so on. It works.
It was likely an attack on Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who are against ending the filibuster and federal election laws. It’s frustrating to see an entire party go against their people because of their opinion. At that, it’s not even just theirs. There are more Democrats that are against it and aren’t speaking out. They certainly aren’t the only ones.
Either way, Clinton had her time in politics, and she’s already failed on several occasions in several different ways. Remember Benghazi and the failed 2020 election that Clinton has been a considerable part of.
