I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the interview Madam Clinton gave to ABC News on October 25th. She was asked what concerns her about the country- truly one of those famous softball questions she typically gets. In response, she indicated one of the things she was most concerned about was the implosion of the Republican Party.
I replayed the clip just to make sure I had heard it correctly. I let her words sink in. Suddenly, it occurred to me she was being sincere; but not in the way most Americans might reason.
Her exact words were, “I am concerned the GOP is imploding…It is becoming a far right captive party to ideological, religious, and commercial interests.” In a stream of consciousness she confessed her heart-felt concerns the Republican Party’s center of gravity is moving to the right, away from the establishment swamp in which its elected federal officials had taken refuge the past 20 or so years.
With absolute precision she correctly identified the three pillars of conservatism in which the Republican Party finds its strength- strong ideological principles, a foundation in Judeo-Christian values, and an unwavering alliance with capitalism. She could not have been more accurate in describing the bow wave of activity being triggered today by President Donald Trump’s populist rhetoric and his “America First” portfolio of policies. I take her at her word that she is deeply concerned the GOP is gravitating back to these pillars of strength. After all, this means the stranglehold that establishment republicans have had on the GOP is being rejected by the American public.
No doubt HRC fears a more resilient and powerful GOP will emerge from the swamp. She must know just how sharply this regenerated party will contrast with the progressive, socialist, anti-Christian, Caucasian-bashing, phobo-phobians who comprise the remnants of the once dominant Democrat Party. Her party bears no resemblance to the party of Jefferson, Jackson, and Roosevelt. It is more of an amalgamation of the parties of Che, Fidel, and Mao.
I believe Clinton is genuinely concerned she has been a primary catalyst for the rise of populism and the demise of the Democrat Party. She fears the emerging Republican Party will come to dominate the national political scene for decades to come. The evidence is already apparent: despite many GOP miscues since the 2016 general election, its record of success in subsequent special elections is untarnished. The upcoming gubernatorial election in Virginia appears headed for yet another conservative victory. This is certainly not the Clinton legacy she and her intractable husband had envisioned.
Perhaps even more of concern to Hillary, despite seemingly insurmountable forces from the mainstream media, Hollywood, and the Washington Swamp, President Trump is starting to gain traction in his plans to make America great again. Most assuredly, the new “far right” GOP will forge an alliance with the President and restore American greatness through economic growth and prosperity, reverence for Biblical values, and enforcement of the rule of law- things that HRC’s democrats long ago abandoned.
For once, I believe Hillary was actually telling the truth.
