Explain to me the basis of the attack on Hillary

Last edited Thu Oct 24, 2019, 12:26 PM - Edit history (1)

of being a warmonger? I must have missed that. Is it because she went along with Bush on Iraq? Because she was Secretary of State?

Are there specific instances Pukes use as proof of her mongering?

Edit: I donít want to look like I want dirt on Hillary.

So just the most basic answer.

Like no basis. Just pulling shit out of their asses.

1. The primary one is Iraq, though it's often used as a catch-all insult.

A good article on the subject, its history, and its application to Clinton and others:

https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-kirchick-warmonger-20170809-story.html

In short, when it's applied to someone like Clinton from the right, it's projection. Of course, projection is a favorite of Trump and the GOP. For the latter, it goes back decades.

As for the left, the article makes a good point. Rarely does anyone call out anti-Western regimes for their warmongering. Russia, of course, is the perfect example of this. For some reason, they get a pass with people like Jill Stein.

3. She was Secretary of State, and didn't demand that everyone stop fighting.

 

Also, she.
