Right Wing Media

Last edited Fri Sep 11, 2020, 07:04 AM - Edit history (2)

It just kills me how the right wing has portrayed Hillary. For every supposed horror of hers, I can go tit for tat on Trump (plus a whole sh*#load more on him)!

Hillary - Benghazi
Trump - Yemen

Hillary - Use of personal server for emails
Trump - Ivanka and Jared and Melania and other members of Trump's team using used personal email accounts. Trump using a personal cell phone

Hillary - Corruption with The Clinton Foundation
Trump - Do I need to even say anything about corruption with The Trump Foundation??!

Hillary - Bill Clinton chatting with Lynch on the tarmac
Trump - Bill Barr...need I say more??!

Now, I can type a million more things to add to Trump's list of corruption but my fingers would start hurting!!

I wish that the republican base would understand that anything negative that Trump or the Republicans in Congress or the right wing media are going to try and throw against Biden or Harris is all just spinning...it's all just faux outrage and hype to try and poison your minds against them! The republicans don't even care about the issues that they brought up against Hillary...it was just their way to try and fabricate scandals against her to try and turn people against her! They accuse Hillary of wrongdoing when there isn't any and then Trump does the actual wrongdoing they falsely accused her of!

And the fact that the Right Wing Media doesn't talk about Yemen the way they did about Benghazi, doesn't talk about the Trump Foundation the way they did the Clinton Foundation, etc should make the republican base see that they're being propagandized to! But unfortunately they are in their propaganda bubble and don't realize how they are being deceived!

1. Why are you pushing debunked right wing smears?

There was no corruption at Clinton Foundation.
Hillary did not carry out the terrorist attack on our consulate. The private server was a minor lapse in judgment that was blown out of all proportion by the media.

Your post falsely implies that Hillary was guilty of some wrongdoing.

2. Your examples shouldn't be seen as tit for tat

In all cases they are not on the same footing at all.
First example: The Benghazi tragedy was due to Republican's slashing funding and Sec. Clinton had tried to address the shortfall.
Yemen was the result of Trump trying to act like a tough leader putting a slap-hazard mission together.
Sec. example: When Sec. Clinton used a private server, it wasn't illegal--not to mention was the same server that was in the house of a
former president who knew how to keep it secure.
The entire Trump criminal gang knew better because the law had been changed to make the private use illegal.
Third example: The "corruption with the Clinton Foundation" is alleged. The foundation has the highest rating possible and does a heck
of a lot of good in the world.
The Trump Foundation is fraudulent.

3. For the email thing, you could even say Trump used a personal cell phone for a long time

that is not secure.

4. My point...

My point was saying "supposed" horrors of Hillary. I was trying to say that the republican smear machine is just that...a smear machine! They will try and poison the republican base into believing the false accusations that they are going to make about Biden and Harris. I'm sorry....I didn't explain myself well!
