After suspected bombs were sent to her home, Hillary Clinton called for unity at a political rally the same day.
This, of course, is the massive hypocrite who just weeks ago dehumanized Republicans to the point that she wondered how anyone could be civil to them. Earlier in the month, Hillary told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.” Just weeks later, Hillary is now bemoaning a lack of civility.
Hillary’s new views on civility after the bomb scare
Hillary spoke earlier this morning at a campaign rally in Florida and began by addressing the bombs that were sent to her, and others. “It is a troubling time, isn’t it. And it’s a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together.” So I guess the time to bring back civility is now, not after the midterms? Or is it only the right that has to be civil?
She then immediately made things political. “We have to elect candidates who … will set goals that will lift up every Floridian and American, who will look into the future,” Hillary continued.
And just weeks earlier….
If whoever is responsible for sending explosives did so only to Republicans, wouldn’t they simply have been abiding by Hillary’s advice to abandon civility? It’s at least nice of her to change her tune once she realized that she could be harmed by the very posture she advocates.
Responses to her comment were mixed, with most highlighting Hillary’s hypocrisy.
When you watch:
– Scalise shot
– GOP pols harassed
– Holder say “kick ’em”
– Obama say “throw them out”
– Hillary say only civility if Dems win
– Waters say harrass Trump supporters
– Antifa beating people
It’s only logical to question who actually sent the bombs.

Hillary Clinton just used the “You never let a serious crisis go to waste” telling her crowd “we” need to elect people who will bring our country together 😳
….hours after mail bomb reports….#RealTalk

Hillary responded to these bomb threats against her family (with a SMIRK on her face?!) saying this is why we need to elect more Democrats. A VERY odd reaction to an attempt on your life …can’t imagine why anyone would say this wasn’t actually planned by a conservative. pic.twitter.com/IaY8bUf5bU

A week ago, Hillary said “there won’t be civility until we have control”. Now , after the bomb stunt, she’s saying, “we must come together as a country. We must elect people who will not tolerate this behavior” …. Call it in bad taste to say all you want. I’m not buying this.

It is interesting to note that the first thing Hillary did in response to these attempted bombings was to cite them as further reasons people need to vote Democrat. Not once did she express relief that no one was harmed, but how surprising is that? News like this is political capital to her, and that’s all she cares about. I must say, I’ve never seen anyone smile as much as Hillary did whilst speaking about how they just survived an assassination attempt.
