    For those that haven't seen it

    Glad to see Gabbard finally stick up for herself. Have to admit that I have a soft spot for modern-day iron-fist cut-throats like HRC though, they're kind of a dying breed among all the usual boomer types that just sit in their niche for 50 years, relative to say the New Deal era when basically every prominent politician was a ruthless murderer.

    I've seen people over the years try to say HRC is America's Iron Lady but never found it convincing. Iron-fisted types don't cry the victim and play the 'muh sexism' card as much as she does. Thatcher dominated male politicians, HRC doesn't do that. She is cut-throat though, in a slippery snake kinda way.

    Thanks for the email I've never actually read it for some reason.

    Edit:
    :lol:

    I don't think she plays the idpol card all that much, except maybe against Trump. At least, not that much relative to candidates like Harris, Booker, Castro, etc. The only recent one that's coming to mind was...



    And that basically threw the young, probably-left-leaning interviewer under the racism bus for quick laughs. Completely ruthless. Like, you read the Goldman Sachs transcripts and there's little if any bullshit talk about the importance of diversity and so on, instead she mostly rails against other foreign nations, expresses her desire to send the navy into the South China Sea, and promises old wealthy conservatives that she'll begin enforcing federal marijuana laws again. Or how in that recent interview with Chelsea she basically openly admitted to being pro-TERF. She'll throw out the occasional meaningless "Women are the primary victims of war" line for her audience but it's just window dressing to her vast network of informants, bankroller elites, and power-brokers, unlike Kamala Harris who has nothing beyond her vagina and the occasional forced sassy-black-womyn voice. Between that, her leading the research on Watergate as a fresh college grad, and her open admiration of Kissinger, I think she's someone that seeks power for some kind of grand egotistical legacy, unlike her husband who just wanted money and sex.

    lmao that was pretty funny, she kinda roasted that poor man's Maddow interviewer.

    I do agree that HRC has a much more grand vision compared to her husband whose presidency resembled some kind of National Lampoon's project, and she's ruthless in a kind of pulling strings behind the scenes way (which Tulsi accurately referred to as "the curtain") but I guess I don't associate that kind of thing with iron-fistedness. She doesn't strike me as a puncher, she cries with her public face and then wields cold ruthless realpolitik in private.

    Probably just an issue with me rather than you here? Staying married to a lump of shit like Bill literally just to retain her career's upward trajectory is pretty fucking cold, but at the same time I think an Iron Lady would dump his ass out of principle.

    I've soured on Christopher Hitchens a lot over the years but I think a lot of his hatred towards HRC has stayed with me in the form of an unconscious bias. This is still a favourite compilation, and the Bosnia fabrication is one of the funniest examples of HRC playing the victim card. Behind closed doors she accepts millions from patriarchal dictatorships and then steps out and cries about the glass ceiling.

    I will always see her as Kissinger-esque, he pulls bloodied strings while projecting a set-upon image to the public. Oh everybody is out to get me, I'm being bullied and so forth.

    Clinton's been saying some version of this since the '90s, and it's been fact-checked numerous times (inconclusively). It's nothing new.

    It's funny the people who respond to your troll posts on a politicians Facebook page. Last night I was told that all whitey fear strong black men and women shut up and learn something. Mind you my FB picture is the Mystery Man from Lost Highway. That was pretty racist, I thought. I hope to keep the conversation going. She seemed lovely.

    I mean, sure.

    Honestly I would stretch it even further, saying no woman should be compelled to touch ANY genitals against her will, irrespective of how the owner of the genitals identifies, and you know what? Let's do no PERSON and get it out of the way, because touching genitals against ones will is a no-no in general. :rolleyes:
