Hillary Clinton admonished the Republicans with common sense. She wants them to get into the game to save our democracy.
Hillary Clinton does it again
Joe Scarborough pointed out that many Republicans are praising Putin. In a recent post, I wrote,
It is deplorable that many Republicans, including Trump, are currently giving vocal support and admiration to Vladimir Putin for his invasion of a sovereign democratic country.
“This is genius,” Trump said in a conservative talk radio interview at his Mar-a-Lago resort, echoing his past praise of the Russian president. “Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine — of Ukraine — Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful. He used the word ‘independent’ and ‘we’re going to go out and we’re going to go in and we’re going to help keep peace.’ You’ve got to say that’s pretty savvy.” …
Conservative commentator Candace Owens tweeted this week: “I suggest every American who wants to know what’s actually going on in Russia and Ukraine, read this transcript of Putin’s address. As I’ve said for month — NATO (under direction from the United States) is violating previous agreements and expanding eastward. WE are at fault.” …
“It may be worth asking yourself, since it is getting pretty serious: ‘What is this really about? Why do I hate Putin so much?’” Carlson said Tuesday. “‘Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him?’” …
“I have enormous respect for him,” Pompeo said in a Feb. 18 call with the Center for the National Interest. “I’ve been criticized for saying that.” And he told Fox News: “He’s a very talented statesman. He has lots of gifts. He was a KGB agent, for goodness’ sakes. He knows how to use power. We should respect that.”
Now that Vladimir Putin has invaded Ukraine and people are dying, will these American traitors and Putin appeasers change their stance as the carnage and immorality come into full view?
Hillary first gave Republicans some history of rejecting interparty turmoil at our shores.
“Well, Joe, as you know so well, we had a bipartisan an agreement, a commitment starting after World War II with Harry Truman all the way until, you know,” Hillary Clinton said. “the Soviet Union collapsed, that we would stand with people who loved freedom like we do, that we would stand with the dissidents who were speaking out about human rights and against oppression and death at the hands of regimes that, you know, the Soviet Union both executed themselves and supported elsewhere. “
Clinton then admonished common sense Republicans.
“So this is heartbreaking, but it’s also dangerous,” said Hillary Clinton. “And I think it’s time for what’s left of the Republican Party that has any common sense, not just to say, okay, go help defend Ukraine against Putin, but to stand against those people in politics and government, in the media and elsewhere in our own country who are literally giving aid and comfort to an enemy of freedom and democracy. It can’t; it can’t continue because it plays right into the ambitions of not just Putin but also President Xi of China. To undermine democracy, to literally divide and conquer the West without ever invading us, but by setting us against each other.”
Sensible Republicans, are you listening?
