Deep into a political campaign, tempers are lost, friends are lost. In Hillsborough, North Carolina, there was an arson attack at a Republican Party office. Major damage and destruction from a firebomb attack. No loss of life. The explosive device was thrown through a window of the office, and the words “Nazi Republicans, leave town or else” were painted on a nearby building. “Nazi Republicans?” That’s a new one, although “Nazi” has come to be a sort of all-purpose epithet, particularly for those completely unfamiliar with history.
This year seems to be the worst one in my memory for hate and anger. One wonders if people are actually aware of the issues. Do they understand what all the fuss about emails is, and why there is so much talk of putting Hillary in jail, which seems outrageous. The Clinton campaign has made it clear that they have no respect for ordinary American citizens, called them “Deplorables,” Bill Clinton essentially called them Southern White Trash.
The leaks of emails from Wikileaks are painting a difficult picture of the Clinton Campaign. John Podesta is Hillary’s Campaign Chairman, and his leaked emails make it clear that even early on, Hillary wanted to run against one of these three: Ben Carson, Ted Crus or Donald Trump, as the easiest for her to defeat. In the early debates with the absurd Republican bench of 17 candidates, did you wonder why all the attention went to Donald Trump, and the other 16 had a hard time getting a chance to speak at all? As Instapundit says quite regularly, “If you think of the media as Democrat operatives with bylines, it all makes sense.”
Have you bought a copy of Clinton Cash, Peter Schweizer’s 2015 book about how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from “Dead Broke” to multimillionaires? Its also out in a graphic novel form. I haven’t, but was fascinated with Gini Thomas’s interview with Peter Schweizer, in two parts. The second part is here. Mrs. Thomas is an excellent interviewer and Peter Schweizer’s story of the investigation is certainly worth your time. Though if you have been following the revelations from Wikileaks, nothing is really a surprise. No wonder sixty-one percent of Americans say their biggest worry is “government corruption.”
We have had misbehaving government bureucrats before, but never at this scale, and never with the approval of the government itself.
