Hillary Blasts (Misogynist) Critics For Telling Her To Shut Up and Go Away
“They never said that to any man who was not elected”
Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is lashing out again. This time because people, “mostly in the media,” keep telling her to shut up and go away. She must also be referring to the many Democrats who have said the same thing as she keeps pointing at everyone but herself for her 2016 loss to President Trump.
Her latest rant suggests that the people who said to her, “Go away, go away,” are doing so only because she’s a woman.
Hillary Clinton is striking back at critics telling her to “shut up” following her 2016 loss, saying, “They never said that to any man who was not elected.”
“I was really struck by how people said that to me — you know, mostly people in the press, for whatever reason — mostly, ‘Go away, go away,’” Clinton said Thursday during an event at Rutgers University.
“And I had one of the young people who works for me go back and do a bit of research. They never said that to any man who was not elected. I was kind of struck by that,” Clinton said.
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question from Eagleton Institute of Politics’ director Ruth Mandel about the former Democratic presidential nominee’s reaction to those who say she should “get off the public stage and shut up.”
She goes on to explain that former presidential candidates who failed to win the White House have not been told to shut up.
The Hill continues:
“I’m really glad that, you know, Al Gore didn’t stop talking about climate change,” Clinton said to applause.
“And I’m really glad John Kerry went to the Senate and became an excellent secretary of State,” the former first lady continued. “And I’m really glad John McCain kept speaking out and standing up and saying what he had to say. And for heavens sakes, Mitt Romney is running for the Senate,” Clinton said.
This is such a ridiculous comparison that it’s hard to know where to start, but let’s go with the fact that none of these failed presidential hopefuls spent over a year (so far) explaining that everything under the sun—except themselves—was responsible for their loss.
They didn’t write books in which they blame everything from Russia and a vast right-wing conspiracy to misogyny and Obama to “deplorable” Americans, especially those deplorable white women who vote as they are told by their husbands.
Heck, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) pointedly told her to shut up just as he did after his loss to Obama.
Esquire reported at the time:
After McCain lost, his reputation for putting his country ahead of his ambition was further damaged by Game Change, a vivid chronicle that revealed his campaign’s desperate attempts to bring Palin up to speed. McCain says he resisted the temptation to immediately set the record straight with his own lengthy account, as Hillary Clinton did recently in What Happened.
. . . . “What’s the fucking point? Keep the fight up? History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on. This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.”
Does Hillary sincerely believe that if she were in the public sphere talking about anything else she’d be told to shut up and go away?
Is it possible that Hillary really thinks that the people telling her to shut up and go away are doing so because she’s a woman and not because she’s become a source of deep embarrassment to her own party?
The LA Times published a lengthy piece entitled, “Hillary, I love you. But please go away.” The entire article was about her continued whining and blame-shifting.
When I heard Hillary Clinton on the radio speaking about her new book, “What Happened,” I groaned. Even for those of us who supported Clinton, or just didn’t want to see President Trump elected, retreading this well-worn path nearly a year after the election is an exercise in futility at best, foot-shooting at worst.
Was the reason for Clinton’s defeat Russia, PC-culture backlash or Comey, Wikileaks, sexism or Clinton herself? Clinton may just be publicly arriving to this conversation, but politically engaged liberals and leftists had it ad nauseam — and have since begun the hard work of organizing a more vibrant, coherent and compelling movement. Ax-grinding, justified as it may be, does not change the outcome of the election; many on the left would prefer to build for 2018 and 2020 rather than relitigate 2016.
This was pretty much the reaction to her book across the leftist media. They love her, wished she had won . . . and want her to shut up and go away. Not because she’s a woman, but because she’s an albatross clinging to her outrage, lashing out at the world, and selfishly dragging her party down.
It wasn’t just the leftist media. Democrat donors and political operatives have been vocal about their desire for her to shut up and go away.
The Washington Examiner reported last fall:
As Hillary Clinton gears up for her book tour, some Democrats are fuming that their former presidential nominee is returning to the spotlight.
“The best thing she could do is disappear,” one former Clinton fundraiser and surrogate told The Hill. “She’s doing harm to all of us because of her own selfishness. Honestly, I wish she’d just shut the fuck up and go away.”
. . . . “None of this is good for the party,” one former Obama aide told The Hill. “It’s the Hillary Show, 100 percent. A lot of us are scratching our heads and wondering what she’s trying to do. It’s certainly not helpful.”
After her latest attack on white American women for being bullied into voting for Trump by their husbands or sons, Democrats were vocal about how harmful are her continued attacks on the very voters Democrats will need this fall.
Democratic operatives have an urgent message for Hillary Clinton: Please shut up and go away.
Their fury and frustration were fueled by boasts she made in India over the weekend while hawking her new book, “What Happened,” that “advanced” states with better economies and smarter people voted for her.
. . . . “I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward,” she said.
. . . . Trump’s campaign “was looking backwards,” she added, before dissing Trump supporters as a bunch of racist Cro-Magnons.“You didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs. You don’t want, you know, see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are. Whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it,” said Clinton, describing her version of Trump’s “MAGA” message.
She also said that women who voted for Trump were too dumb to make up their own minds, and had been brainwashed by “ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
Weary Democrats said they had had enough, and that her clueless comments were reminiscent of her description in the campaign of many Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables,” a slur that cemented her image as an out-of-touch Beltway elitist.
“She’s annoying me. She’s annoying everyone, as far as I can tell. Who lets her say these things?” a 2016 Clinton surrogate told the website.
“If these statements are a form of catharsis, it would be in the Democratic Party’s best interest for her to get these out of her system soon. We need leaders like her to look forward to 2020 and how to unify the party, not continue to re-litigate the past,” a former White House aide to President Barack Obama added.
Democrats griped that her comments would make it tougher for Democrats in swing states because they would likely be called on to respond to her disparaging remarks.
“She put herself in a position where [Democrats] from states that Trump won will have to distance themselves from her even more,” another former Clinton aide told the website. “That’s a lot of states.”
Hillary apparently believes that the only reason she’s being told to shut up and go away is deep-rooted sexism with a dash of misogyny. She’s wrong. As usual.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Ok, who was the last man, not elected President, who did NOT shut up and go away?
(No, no, BESIDES Obama, who was hoping for 3+ terms!)
Oh, Algore, McStain, and the ever popular John F’in Kerry
Refresh my memory – did Kerry serve in Vietnam?
Their garbage was squat compared with Killary’s
I’m waiting for this shrew to legally change her name to “Harridan E.(mbittered, or, Entitled) Scold.”
Retiring gracefully and out of the limelight is the default posture for most losers of presidential elections, but, it’s obvious that Hillary is too egotistical, too venal, too haughty, too prideful and too resentful to do such a thing.
Her Majesty believes that she was wrongfully denied the throne that is her birthright, and, she will not be silenced (or, ignored) until she re-claims it!
So she is a misandrist, as she blames men for her loss, she blames people giving a pass to men for not being told to “go away” even though none of them have been acting like her after her defeat, blames women who somehow were made to vote against her by men…
She needs to be labeled as a misandrist. Two can play at her game.
I agree, but I have two misgivings:
1. “Misandrist” is far too kind; and,
2. Be honest: wouldn’t that be seen as a badge of honor for many on the Left?
Most people would be proud of receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She’d be more proud of receiving the “Feministial Medal of She-dom.”
They hate having labels tagged on them. Remember Crooked Hillary, and how that rankled her. She is a bigot too. And a narcissist which she learned well from Duh One.
To them, only they can label people in such a way.
And to think that vile witch called others deplorable! She’s going to be a pain in absolutely everybody’s ass until the day after she dies.
The words of a wizard!
“And I had one of the young people who works for me go back and do a bit of research.”
This reminds me that most of her State Dept. e-mails included “Pls. print.”
Other people do the work for this one.
Please, keep it up Hillary.
Yes, yes. Please be the albatross we can chain to every other Democrat running.
(Not that we have to ask. Her ego won’t allow anything less.)
“Hillary Clinton is striking back at critics telling her to shut up”
Oh Hillary. You are only saying that because your husband told you to. Right?
“Her latest rant suggests that the people who said to her, “Go away, go away,” are doing so only because she’s a woman.”
Oh no, Mrs. Pantsuit. We Americans tell a black man who twice won what you could not the same thing!
Because we don’t discriminate. Now, GO AWAY!
When Hillary and Obama were political opponent, vying for their party’s candidacy for president, I loved it! Think of the hordes of liberals tortured by the thought that if they supported Hillary, they might be racists, and that if they supported Obama, they might be misogynists! How did they ever choose? Did they decide, “Better to be a misogynist than a racist?” Did they wish there was a viable black female candidate to provide a way out of the conundrum?
Hillary: “They never said that to any man who was not elected.”
Of course not. Every other presidential candidate who lost quietly went about his business. Some continued to be in the public sphere, but took up different issues: Al Gore went with Climate Change; John McCain went back to the Senate (to a seat he already held — can’t fault him for that); Mitt Romney faded away until now, as he’s running for Senate — which is his right to try; George H.W. Bush just kind of disappeared for the most part except for the (very) occasional interview, preferring his private life over his public life (can’t fault him for that, either).
IOW, no other candidate has made it their post-election business to go on international speaking tours publicly bashing America for failing to elect them. No other candidate made it their mission to actively undermine the Constitutional process by which the voters chose “the other guy”. No other candidate has published and promoted a book about “why they lost” and blaming everything EXCEPT themselves.
Relatedly, no other candidate approached the campaign and election as if they were “due”, as if it was “their turn” and they were entitled to it. They all worked for it.
Maybe… just maybe… being told to shut up and go away has nothing to do with being a woman, and everything to do with being a despicable, unAmerican, poor-excuse-for-a-human-being, and continuing to spout nonsense that everyone else is tired of hearing.

But Bill PROMISED.
Notice how much Billy Jeff spends at her side (not even there when she keeps tripping her 2 Left feet).
the Clinton Criminal Conspiracy is names after Billy Jeff.
It would be more accueate to be called the Rotton Foundation named after madman name. HRC –
she always claimed to be the smart one and he the charming one.
she had neither brains nor charm.
Donald Trump had amazing energy on the Hustings and in office.
both HRC and DJT are about the same age yet Pres Trump has a firm Handshake and a firm step.
That he has taken awhile to get the admin filled with people who are like minded and are not influenced by the deep state, it
is quite a challenge.
DJT examplifies "No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy ", HRC and BHO on the other hand is the reverse in bad mouthing the USA citizenry.
during the coming week PLEASE keep Pres Trump and our republic in your prayers for devine protection.
Dear Secretary Clinton
I wanted to thank you for Your Struggle. Please ignore all of these advisors – after all, they promised your odds of winning the election were 100℅, so how good can their advice really be?
No. America needs to hear from you 24/7 through the midterms. Remind us how to deplorable we surely must be, especially the women who are too cowardly to vote their own conscience.
The hard truth is that a vast right-wing conspiracy colluded with the Russians to rig the election.
Actually we tell Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush to shut up and go away regularly. And John McCain. And I certainly remember democrats telling Sarah Palin to shut up and lots of other very unpleasant things.
Sounds like the Chardonnay isn’t doing the job like it used to.
I’ve said mccaon nbush and romney need to shutup many times.
narrative is false.
Man I wish she’d just shut up and go away.
Because she’s such an all-around ghastly piece of work, it’s easy to overlook just how strange a case Hillary really is. She’s pure, distilled ambition, but ambition not directed toward any overarching goal or vision, and ambition unbacked by any obvious aptitude or talent. She wants to be the first woman President of the United States. What she’ll do once she gets in the Oval Office is a mystery, probably even to her. And what skills she might have which would make any other American want her as President have never been displayed—quite the contrary, actually; she’s a terminal screwup. But no matter—she wants it. It’s her entire raison d’être. It’s what gets her out of bed in the morning. It’s what she wants for her epitaph. The crooked money, the international web of corruption, the mysterious trail of dead bodies, none of these—not even the money—are the motivation for her career of evil. They’re just stepping stones on the path, parts of the catapult which will launch a greedy no-talent grifter into the White House. The Presidency is her dream (and of course our nightmare). She has nothing else … and never will. As long as she’s conscious, she’ll keep trying for it.
The goals of the D’rats are different, obviously. They want the Presidency as badly as she does, but they don’t care who gets it, as long as he’s part of the D’rat Collective.
Hillary’s motto could quite easily be: “There is no good and evil, there is only power, and those too weak to seek it.”
Quite a good and solid quote from the other Tom in J.K. Rowling’s book, but she might want to read the series all the way through.
I cannot recall any man – or any other woman for that matter – running such an incompetent campaign and then blaming everyone else for 18 months.
Don’t go away Mad , Hillary , just go away
Romney blamed his loss on…..
McCain blamed his loss on…..
Gore blamed his loss on…..
Dole blamed his loss on…..
Bush 1 blamed his loss on…..
Perot blamed his loss on…..
Dukakis blamed his loss on….
Mondale blamed his loss on….
Carter blamed his loss on….
I can’t say none of these people ever cast blame for their losses, but nothing comes to mind with any of them, while, with Hillary, I can list a half dozen excuses she’s made. With the exception of Carter, I don’t recall anyone telling any of them to go away. We beg Gore to go away, but over his AGW nonsense. This is because they all pretty much went away. Hillary won’t, nor will she STFU.
Most politicians who run for president do it for one of three reasons: for the country, for their party, for themselves. Few are satisfied with the first, most stop at the second; Hillary was, and still is, all in on number three. This is why she continues to yammer about her loss, without regard for the damage she is doing to her party or her country.
The only thing she is good at is funneling money to the Clinton Foundation.
And covering up evidence of her crimes to avoid prosecution, from her cattle futures all the way to wiping the server with a cloth. In fact you kind of have to give her props for that – she is Omega Level on the power scale of dodging the Rule of Law.
Has there ever in the history of mankind been anyone so corrupt who’s gotten away with as much as Hillary Clinton has?
She’s got to be the most corrupt person in American history. She makes Micheal Corleone look like an amateur
No man has been this big an a-hole.
No woman, either.
In another interview with Hillary on her “Accuse and Excuse” book:
‘I thought, at end of day, people would say, look, we do want change, and we want the right kind of change, and we want change that is realistic and is going to make difference in my life and my family’s life and my paycheck,’ she told Vox.
There is wisdom in the an old saying, “Be careful what you ask of God for yourself, as it very well may be given”.
Just how dense is she?
Funny thing, it is the left who want her to shut the hell up, the right usually mocks her, laughs at her, or just roll our eyes, but frankly she does the Democrats more harm by continuing her blame America for her loss tour, so why would we really care all that much if she shut up?
This woman (I use that term loosely) is delusional with her views on why she lost. Is it that she is so narcissistic that she cannot accept her loss in any other way, or is it that her handlers are not giving her the correct information? Probably a good deal of both… I cannot imagine how horrific she is to work for, let alone giving her information which is contrary to her “massive intellect” views.
Not only that but she had thrown the concept of the Pant Suit right into the dumpster.
David Hogg – take notice!
