Hillary Blasts Trump, Republicans For “Organized Cruelty” And Fears Return To 1850s
Testing 2020 campaign messaging?
We can probably add twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s speech at the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) to the ever-growing list of signs she’s running in 2020. In her speech Friday, she took aim at President Trump, Republicans, and even those among her own supporters who didn’t vote in 2016.
Although she tossed in a few comments directed at the teachers to whom she was speaking, Hillary’s speech was at its essence a campaign speech of the same sort she tried out prior to running in 2008 and in 2016. She hit on health care, infrastructure, illegal immigration, “free” college, taxes, and gun control. Oh, and she mentioned K-12 education a time or two in a nod to her purported audience.
Speaking strongly about the threats to “progress,” Hillary claimed that President Trump is engaged in “organized cruelty” and that he and his administration are trying to “rip the heart out of America.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ripped the Trump administration on Friday during a teachers union conference in Pittsburgh.
Speaking to thousands at the American Federation of Teachers Convention, Clinton expressed her disdain over multiple Trump policies.
The ongoing issue of migrant family separations at the border goes beyond politics, she said, adding that it was disgraceful, inhumane and indecent.
Clinton went on to say that the administration wants to transform the American public into “transactional units.”
“It’s like a man-eat-man, woman-eat-woman society,” she said.
However, she said the result of it all “is that they are trying to rip the heart out of America.”
“They want to turn us against each other,” Clinton said.
If you’re a believer in the theory that Democrats tend to projection, blaming Republicans for their own unsavory and destructive agenda and tactics, that mention of seeing Americans as “transactional units” probably made your blood run cold. It did mine.
Apparently having forgotten dismissing half of Trump’s supporters as “a basket of deplorables,” Hillary indicates that she is outraged by “the disdain and contempt” of Trump in particular and of Republicans in general.
Speaking at the labor union’s conference in Pittsburgh, Mrs. Clinton slammed the administration’s separations of families at the border as inhumane and indecent.
“I believe with all my heart that the test of any society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us, particularly our youngest, our oldest, our people with disabilities, and right now, my friends, our country is failing that test,” she said. “We have never seen such organized cruelty, disdain and contempt for those values.
“People used to hide the way they felt,” she lamented. “They wouldn’t come right out and say what they were thinking, which was good, that’s part of the process of civilization. Boy, not today.”
Hillary also took the opportunity to recast former Vice President Joe Biden’s outrageous claim that Republicans want to put black people “back in chains” by saying that she “worries” that Republicans want to turn the clock back—not to the 1950s as she’s long maintained—to the 1850s.
On Friday morning, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, would bring back slavery if he is confirmed to the nation’s highest court.
“Let me say a word about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Clinton told the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) at its national convention. “This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights — including those to make our own health decisions.”
“It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of the Court for decades and to reverse decades of progress,” the former Democratic presidential nominee declared.
Then came the kicker: “I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s.”
Clinton was clearly suggesting that Trump and Kavanaugh want to return to the days when slavery was legal in the South. The irony is, originalist Supreme Court justices like Kavanaugh would have agreed with Abraham Lincoln against the South, especially on the issue of slavery.
At one point in her
campaign speech address to the AFT, Hillary told a few stories about all the many many (many) people she’s met since she lost her second presidential bid in 2016. The stories are all about how all of these people didn’t vote in the 2016 election because they “didn’t think she needed” them or they “didn’t think it mattered.” She, of course, insists she did and it did.
Watch her full remarks:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Like I saw mentioned on Twitchy… That’s still a couple of years after Wisconsin became a state.
She’ll try to bury her neoliberal addiction beneath a mountain of fake socialist logorrhea. But her base is not in the mood. It wants the real thing.
Hillary should know. She graduated from high school in 1857.
“it was disgraceful, inhumane and indecent”
The Kids In Cages happened on your watch, publicized photos. Maybe you were too busy wiping down servers to notice.
Can’t see an outline of her powered exoskeleton under her July parka. Maybe they’ve streamlined it. Struggling to understand how this cyborg termagant will look better to the eyes of voters in 2020 vs. 2016?
Hillary2020: It’s All Your Fault!
Whatever medical condition Hillary suffers from is only getting harder to conceal from the public. Her stumbling on hotel steps or slip and fall routines in the bathtub. She was wearing a rigid back brace of some sort recently. That and a rigid wrist cast after her tumble in India. Her alcoholism.
She’s falling to pieces. I doubt Hillary will be physically able to get from here to the primaries – no matter how many meds they pump into her.
I am more concerned about the sickness in her head.
I bet it is Parkinson’s.
Another thought, Parkinson’s leads to an eventual break with reality, a symptom she has had for some time now.
About time the AFT gets audited. I would like to see the AFT’s top dog’s personal data disseminated viraly on the net. The failure of the nation’s schools/education starts right with them 🙂
Trump ripping out the heart of America said the woman who has become the rectum of America.

These many, many people are people living in blue states, states which she would win no matter what. Had they voted it simply would have been an exercise in running up the score for that state. Hillary only pals around with “her kind.” Since visiting flyover country wasn’t important to her during the election, the time when it should have been important, what’s the likelihood that she’s visiting those deplorables now?
Looking forward to the Ds’ Blew Wave in November.
Turning people into interchangeable units? All they can do is project.
Hillary: blah blah organized cruelty blah
Teacher: (organized cruelty, forcing us to attend and smile while this putrid hag cackles on and on about 2020. Kill me please)
Sadly, I suspect the percentage of attendees who thought this was close to 20%, maybe less. Today’s K-12 teachers have been well-trained by the progressive Alinsky tribe and are more prone to teach their students important lessons in gender unicorns, gay penguins, sexual perversions, abortion, protest sign painting, and the like than anything remotely academic.
In fact, I was a bit surprised when Hillary referenced Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities and actually said “we all know how it starts, ‘it was the best of times, it was the worst of times,’. . . “. I would bet money on there not being a single person in that audience who has ever heard of Dickens much less that quote. Certainly no one there under 40.
Education degrees are a joke. You take all but nine credit hours (i.e. three semester-length classes) in “education” classes; the other nine hours are devoted to your field. So if you are going to teach K-12 English, you take a grand total of THREE classes in English/literature. The odds any of these undergrad classes read Dickens at all, let alone A Tale of Two Cities? . . . my money’s on zippo, no way, not by a mile. Dickens is a dead white male, after all, and even if they did read him (which they don’t), it would be something short like A Christmas Carol. After all, we all know that how long a literary work is ranks up there with whether or not there’s a super keen video about the author, historical period, socio-cultural / political climate of the day available because watching videos is so now. (No, I’m not kidding; this is happening at the college level, too.)
Sorry for the dv, was trying to hit reply. Can you put “Fen was whining again for a site upgrade with an edit function” into you notes for next staff meeting?
Back on topic. I don’t doubt you. It’s a good thing I quit FB after all. I have a few teacher friends and invariably had to bite my tongue at the frequent “teachers are heros!” memes. Especially now that the wierd Florida policy of covering up criminality has been exposed. It got Trayvon Martin killed, failed to educate Rachel Jentel to communicate like an adult – she apparently can’t read or write either.
But since I left we’ve added more coverup that led to a school shooter slipping through the system, college professors who are opposed to free speech, Proof Bicycle Lock Assault, can I get some muscle over here, etc.
Pretty sure, with my big mouth, I would have lost those teacher friends. It’s got to be hard for those 20% to watch their love perverted by the Marxists.
I only saw my father cry twice in his life. One day I found him alone in the kitchen in tears. 3am with a bourbon in his hand. It was the day the decay of respect for the lawyers and the legal profession had devolved into the new normal. He loved the Law so much, was so proud and worked so very hard at it, and now it was as if a child had been taken by disease. I imagine alot of teachers are going through the very same thing.
“…is that they are trying to rip the heart out of America.”
Yep, the evil and corrupt heart represented by shrillary. Trump is doing a damn fine job of it.
They pay to hear her nonsense. Fortunately after the last SCOTUS ruling many won’t have to.
Hillary’s total mental breakdown almost makes me feel sorry for whoever loses to Trump in 2020.
Hillary is a truly tiresome twit. She needs to go work out on Harry Reid’s exercise machine.
Something to keep in mind. She is no longer the heir presumptive.
She is one of a pack many who will not drop out and are hungry, though I doubt any are as hungry as she is.
Trump campaigned at many places. Hell often times two places in one day. In fact he would campaign on landing strips then when he was done, step on to the plane for the next stop.
Hillary OTOH often took off several days between stops.
Even if her health is good, she obviously does not have a high energy level.
Consider that,then consider her running in a primary like the Republican 2016 primary. People expect the Dem2020 primary to be even more grueling then R2016.
No matter how rigged, think she can come out on top?
Let her run, it will just sow more discontent in the GOP.
Hell. I might vote for her myself in the primaries, if I think it will cause the dems trouble.
She really does believe all this stuff. After all, the voices in her head keep telling her its all true!
Okay, that is just satire; none of us actually know that she has a DSM-IV diagnosis. All we do know is that 40-odd people who “knew where the bodies were buried” ended up as bodies themselves, dying under suspicious circumstances. And that she refuses to believe there were so many “deplorables” who actually voted against her. Or that so many people could not easily understand that she was “inevitable” and deserved to sit in the POTUS chair!
Delusional, thy name is Hillary!
Republicans want to turn the clock back—not to the 1950s as she’s long maintained—to the 1850s.
I wish they would. The Republican Party was formed in 1854 specifically to fight the Democrats tooth and nail. And a few years later, it fought them with considerably more than that.
America could use a bit more of that today.
The Democrats haven’t been this angry since Lincoln took away their slaves.
“NBC reports study finds 16.4 million Americans think chocolate milk comes from brown cows.”
These Americans will always vote D.
Please, Democrats. Make Hillary your nominee in 2020! Please save us from all this #Winning!
The D fell off the podium logo.
And Hillary, if she had won, would have returned us back to 1917.
Hmmm 1850’s America … Isn’t that when the democrats were fighting to keep their slaves and right before they lost an election and took their pail and shovel and went home … And then nearly destroyed the US and got 650,000 people killed because they could accept the results of election… Does she mean those 1850’s
HRC, what a maroon (hat tip: Bugs Bunny)!
I would bet the people who told her they should have voted were not in the competitive states.
For starters does anyone believe she even talks to women from Wisconsin or Michigan or Pennsylvania?
She is talking about people in California and they didn’t think their vote matter BECAUSE IT DIDN’T due to the thing she hates the Electoral College and their vote not making any difference in the EC. I am making a big assumption here that she is even telling the truth.
Hillary clinton is a malignant, thieving piece of garbage, even more incompetent than obama (something that’s hard to be). Those are her good qualities.
For her treason in selling influence as secretary of state, and the genocide she unleashed in the middle east, she should be dangling at the end of a rope.
The only reason she isn’t, is because of another malignancy: fake attorney general jeff sessions.
Hillary gives Harpie’s a bad name …
“ ‘ “I believe with all my heart that the test of any society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us, particularly our youngest….” ’ ”
Well, except for those pesky pre-born children.
“ ‘ “It’s like a man-eat-man, woman-eat-woman society,” she said.’ ”
2. Some things are carrying “equal rights” a bit too far.
3. Isn’t the expression a gender-neutral “dog-eat-dog”, anyway?
Let’s see. 1850. The Democrats were in control, and pushing slavery. Great choice, Hill.
Everything she says sounds like her party.She must be talking about that.
