Hillary Clinton and other senior members of the US Democratic Party use civil language in politics to conceal their campaign of waging war against working Americans and minorities, says a pundit and former congressional candidate.
In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Clinton said Democrats need to draw a hard line against Republicans.
"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," she said. "That's why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again."
"But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize is strength," she said.
Myles Hoenig, who ran for the US Congress in 2016 as a Green Party candidate, dismissed Clinton's comments, saying “the idea that the Democratic Party has a monopoly on civility is one of the most contemptuous ideas to come out of Washington.”
“Her politics are far more Republican than most Democrats’, but we can’t forget how dismissive she is of those who are usually far less capable of either defending themselves or promoting their agenda in the face of such hostility from the Clintons and the Democrats,” Hoenig said Tuesday in a phone interview with Press TV.
“She feels calling the other half of the electorate ‘deplorables’ does not show an ounce of understanding, sympathy, and certainly not empathy, for millions of Americans who were fooled into thinking their desperate lives could be saved by the charlatan they did elect,” he said.
“Being nice and civil is all well and good but it is not a Democratic trademark and using polite words will only hide their waging war on working Americans, the environment, all people of color, and those fighting for freedom all over the world, which is the most uncivil thing one can do when holding power,” he added.
During the CNN interview, Clinton said US President Donald Trump staged a "political rally" at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's ceremonial swearing-in that "further undermined the image and integrity of the court."
"And that troubles me greatly. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government. So I don't know how people are going to react to it. I think, given our divides, it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against," Clinton said.
"But the President's been true to form," she continued. "He has insulted, attacked, demeaned women throughout the campaign — really for many years leading up to the campaign. And he's continued to do that inside the White House."
