They are mad as hell and they are not going to take it anymore – losing an election square and fair.
Hey, did you know Rep Mo Brooks of Alabama wants to impeach Hillary Clinton the day she likely gets to the White House.
“And in my judgement, with respect to Hillary Clinton, she will be a unique president if she is elected by the public next November, because the day she’s sworn in is the day that she’s subject to impeachment because she has committed high crimes and misdemeanors,” he said.
Seems she will hardly have her inauguration speech made before this wingnut white folks champion (he’s convinced there is a war against whites) from Alabama will do his damndest to hurl her out of office.
Say it ain’t so Mo – alas you won’t.
Of course he will have lots of precedent. Donald Trump wants to jail her and to break the law by “instructing“ a special prosecutor to find her guilty.
Then there are the loons convinced that Trump is blameless in the sewer-sucking election he has drawn everyone into and who still think he can win the election. He never mocked a disabled reporter. He never claimed Miss Universe had a sex tape. He never said America should invade Iraq.
Talk about lies!
The loonies got their night out at the second debate when Trump gave them the psychic wet dream they so badly needed, saying he would jail Hillary.
If only looney tunes, if only.
Trump has been trying to end her campaign using guilt by association with her husband. The hypocrisy of Trump and Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich, all serial adulterers, lecturing America on Clinton morals would be hilarious if it wasn’t true.
But there is real intent there and method in the madness. Unable to win the White House any more (even when they did with George W. he lost the popular vote by 500,000) they immediately set about delegitimizing the Democratic winner.
It is not a new trick. Go back to the Clinton era, where Bill Clinton proved more popular than Ronald Reagan upon leaving office despite the best efforts of Newt Gingrich and Co, backed by the Koch brothers, Rupert Murdoch and Fox News, to remove him from office.
Now the future looks like the past to them with Hillary the overwhelming favorite to win. Mo Brooks is ready for more impeachment it seems. God knows how many other nitwits will join him.
It is all part of a massive outrage among white guys that they no longer rule the roost. Trump, Gingrich, Giuliani all will shortly have one thing in common – the Clinton name seems to draw madness from them, mainly, I guess, as they seem utterly unable to defeat them.
It reminds me of Yeats who wrote in an utterly different context:
“Some woman’s yellow hair
"Has maddened every mother’s son”
The extraordinary thing is that Hillary Clinton is about as radical as Angela Merkel, a centrist by policy and inclination. The irrational hate seems utterly over the top.
But that won’t stop them undermining her. Hillary, if elected, will be their latest target. She will know what to expect.
Cue the racially loaded attempt to prove Obama was born outside the United States. That was all about creating a massive uprising on the right, sadly among people who will believe any phantasmagoria shoveled at them by the right-wingers.
Hillary Clinton, if elected, will run into exactly the same buzzsaw.
If you think Trump is the end of the misogyny and sex-baiting nonsense think again.
There will be an all out attempt to delegitimize her, the misogyny and women baiting will be enormous if she wins.
This time, however, the Clintons will be well aware.
So bring it on Mo Brooks.
