Hillary’s Assassin(s)

“An LSU student from Shreveport is jailed in Baton Rouge on charges he told a fellow student he planned to try to assassinate U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton when she visited Baton Rouge on a presidential campaign stop.  Richard Ryan Wargo, 19, of the 10000 block of Evangeline Oaks Circle, is jailed under $1 million bond.”

This one alleged physical assassin is now in custody awaiting justice. 

An army of political assassins remains at large. 

Let’s understand something about the political assassins targeting Senator Clinton; the vast majority of the attacks on Senator Clinton have nothing actually to do with her.   The attacks come from self-promoters using Hillary to advance themselves and their careers as well as their finances. 

When we last focused on these political assassins we dealt primarily with what we call the “nutroots“.   The “nutroots” are fake “progressives” who delight in promoting their special interests all the while posing as spokesmen (they are overwhelmingly males) for progressives or liberals even as they attack true progressives and liberals who happen to disagree with their self-interested and self-promoting perspective.  

A few days ago Senator Hillary Clinton posted an article on a blog of prominent women writers called FireDogLake. Senator Clinton discussed the issue of equal pay for women in her article entitled Equal Pay, Equal Respect.  Aside from the usual silly attacks from the “nutroots” the posting by Senator Clinton raised the question as to why she posted at that particular blog and not at the biggest so-called “progressive” blog: 

“But Clinton has never posted a diary at Daily Kos, which only begs the question: Why would she proactively avoid recreating the success of other recent candidates? And the most likely the answer is, because Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos — aka “Kos” — hates her. The top result of a google search of “Markos Moulitsas” AND “Hillary Clinton” turns up a Op/Ed Kos wrote in the Washington Post in May, 2006 titled “Too much of a Clinton Democrat?” In it, he is not too fond of either Clinton:

Hillary Clinton leads her Democratic rivals in the polls and in fundraising. Unfortunately, however, the New York senator is part of a failed Democratic Party establishment — led by her husband — that enabled the George W. Bush presidency and the Republican majorities, and all the havoc they have wreaked at home and abroad.”

Do you get that? According to the biggest “progressive” blog kingpin, Bill Clinton is a failed Democratic President and is additionally to blame for George W. Bush. Why do Republicans need Fox News when we have these “progressive” crackpots?

We wrote in our initial post that “We will have lots to say especially with regards to the media and blog coverage of the campaign. We will keep an especially sharp eye on “progressives” or Democrats who repeat Republican propaganda to undermine Hillary or any of our candidates.”

We know we have to keep a sharp eye on these “nutroots” crackpots. We also have to monitor and then do more than merely monitor big media crackpots. 

 For instance Chris Matthews, whose show when it comes to Democrats in general and Hillary in particular should be renamed “Mudball”. 

For instance Arriana Huffington – the political bedhopper formerly associated with Newt Gingrich and his particularly venomous brand of Republicans.

Arriana Huffington of course was a big Republican shill attacking Hillary when Bill Clinton was in the White House. Huffington has not changed her stripes. She is still attacking Democrats and Hillary in particular.

Matthews salivates every time he mentions Hillary.  Matthews was the Republican debate circus master the other night.  Matthews could not resist goading the Republican candidates to bash President Clinton.  Matthews asked whether having Bill Clinton back in the White House was a good idea.  We know having Matthews considered a serious political commentator is a bad idea. 

These assassins have to be exposed and stopped.
