The two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton went on MSNBC on Tuesday night to belittle the intelligence of the American people as she whined that they don’t “appreciate” the achievements of Joe Biden and his administration.
While talking to host Rachel Maddow, Clinton companioned about what she described as the “exploiting” of social media misinformation by Republicans, blaming the lack of “gatekeepers” and “people with a historic perspective” to help Americans understand what they were seeing. This was a clear implication that Clinton feels that Americans are too gullible and ignorant to come to their own conclusions.
“You know, democracy is messy. You know, a lot of people got, oh I think, kind of frustrated looking at the messy process of legislation. And they didn’t really appreciate that, within a year, the Biden administration has passed two major pieces of legislation through both the House and the Senate,” Clinton said, referring to the COVID-19 relief bill and the infrastructure bill, each of which were signed into law earlier in 2021.
Clinton went on to talk about Democrats’ massive spending bill that passed the House last week, but likely will not pass through the Senate.
“By any measure those are extraordinary accomplishments,” Clinton said. “But because of the way we are getting our information today, and because of the lack of gatekeepers and people who have a historic perspective who can help us understand what we are seeing, there is a real vulnerability in the electorate to the kind of demagoguery and disinformation that, unfortunately, the other side is really good at exploiting.”
In this same interview, Clinton appeared to call for more censorship on the internet, as she demanded “new rules for the information age.”
“We certainly need new rules for the information age because our current laws, our framework is just not adequate for what we’re facing,” she said. “And there are a number of very good ideas about how to both apply existing laws and to fill the gaps that exist so that we can begin to try to rein in some of the abuses of the technology companies, particularly the social media companies. In the absence of that, I really don’t know where this ends.”
“There are so many big questions that the Biden administration must address,” Clinton continued. “I just don’t think we have much time, and, therefore, I hope from everything I’m hearing from them that that’s exactly what they’re going to try to do.”
Democrats like Clinton want nothing more than to silence conservative voices on the internet so that they can obtain more power for themselves, and she has such little regard for the American people that she has no problem blatantly insulting their intelligence as she shamelessly pushes her own agenda.
Thank goodness she’ll never be president!
