“Clinton Privilege”

Written July 7, 2016…

You got to love how Clinton supporters (or perhaps a better word for them is Clinton apologists) keep trying to say that, because she wasn’t indicted, that somehow that proves that she is innocent and this was just another “right wing conspiracy.”

It doesn’t seem to matter one bit to them that many people have gotten convicted and jailed, in similar situations, on far less evidence. And usually they were  whistleblowers, doing what they did for altruistic reasons, like trying to uncover criminal acts committed by our government (ie: Sterling, Snowden, etc). Even those whose reasons were less than noble, the fact remains that they were indicted and convicted on far less evidence than what the FBI had on Clinton. Some have been convicted on zero evidence, in fact.

It doesn’t matter to them that the FBI and CIA both stated, in no uncertain terms, that anybody else would have lost their security clearance and/or been jailed… and that she most certainly put the country at risk and displayed reckless behavior in her actions.

These are the same people who scream everyday about how the entire government is corrupt (but apparently Hillary is the lone exception??). They scream and yell (and rightly so) about the injustices that happen everyday in America involving poor people (especially African-Americans) getting jailed and/or killed by police officers over bullshit reasons, but then make allowances and excuses when it comes to Hillary Clinton, who has committed far worse crimes… and has benefited from “white privilege” more than anyone else in our nation’s history. What do you think her chances would be of getting indicted if she was a young, black male, and her sole crime was selling an ounce of weed or a loose cigarette on the street? What do you think her chances would be of it quickly escalating into a fatality, like the ones that have taken place over the last couple of days in Louisiana and Minnesota? It’s almost a certainty.

They complain (and rightly so) over the excessive gun violence in our country, but then see no hypocrisy in supporting someone who claims she will be tough on gun control, as she supports drone warfare, and selling weapons to other countries, as well as being in favor of misguided wars and regime changes. So I guess it’s acceptable if thousands of our young soldiers get killed, or innocent civilians in other countries, but not everyday Americans? As long as she admits she was wrong about voting for war, then that makes it all okay… even as she gears us up for future endless wars?

They worry (and rightly so) about terrorists and hostile enemies attacking us, and/or stealing top secret information. But if it’s Hillary Clinton, who has allowed national security to be breached, then it’s not so important to them, because she simply “made a mistake.” And what about if it turns out that Russia and China did get access to her classified emails (which is almost a certainty)… is that still okay?

Thanks to Comey, there will be no consequences for Clinton’s reckless behavior and actions… and it sets a very dangerous precedent moving forward. But her supporters just seem to see everything in terms of “right wing conspiracy,” and refuse to see it for anything else.

The fact that she didn’t get indicted is no actual reason to be cheering for this woman. How was she “exonerated” when both the CIA and FBI both said she displayed gross negligence, put the country at risk, destroyed government property, obstructed justice, set up a private email server in her basement (which was never allowed, and despite constant warnings that it would jeopardize national security), committed perjury (saying she never once sent classified info over the server, when she most certainly did), most definitely got hacked into by our enemies, and, once again, showed horrible judgement in her decision-making?? Not to mention Bill Clinton meeting with the Attorney General handling the case, one day before his wife is about to be questioned by the FBI… which is extremely unethical… as are most of the things Bill Clinton does.

Hillary Clinton not only benefits greatly from “white privilege” and “wealth privilege,” she also benefits from “Clinton privilege,” where no amount of evidence and proof ever seems quite enough to put her and her husband behind bars, despite putting many others behind bars that face similar charges.

Just because she wasn’t indicted does not change the fact that she put our entire nation at risk. But apparently those things are not important, because she said she was “sorry.” Remember to use that excuse if you ever face criminal charges… and see where that gets you. Chances are good your situation won’t work out nearly as well.
