Thank You, Hillary Haters, Thank You

From our friend at BNR, Peter Daou!

Hillary is living proof that love and kindness are stronger than hate and division.

Witnessing that principle in action means everything to me; it gives me hope. I thank you for giving Hillary the opportunity to show my kids that positive energy triumphs over negative. There are few greater lessons in life.

I watch my former boss endure, and endure, and endure. And I watch you stew, and stew, and stew.

I watch you bash her, screech at her, slime and smear her. She just smiles, shrugs it off, and moves forward. Doing, while you’re yelling. Accomplishing, while you’re screaming. Living, while your rage eats you alive.

You get louder, angrier — and still she’s calm. Still she laughs and smiles.

That destroys you.

1. I have to say one of the things that I am in awe of her about is her response to all the hate thrown

at her.

When you dig into 99.9% of it, there is just nothing there. It is completely unfair. And there is a mountain of it.

I wouldn't be able to get out of bed in the morning.

But she just digs in and works. And works. And works. And does a great job at everything she does, so much so that she has extremely high positives every time she leaves an office.

Every time she does something new, she has to start at the bottom of that hill of hatred and prove herself all over again.

And she just does it. She doesn't show anger or fear or sadness at any of it. She just gets the job done.

I want to be more like her.

3. Yes. She's just like us in what is thrown at her, but she is a really towering example of how to

deal with it.

And that video makes me tear up whenever I see it...

4. I'd say a hell of a lot of women...

know exactly what that higher "Hillary Standard" is.

Thursday, another ceiling finally shattered!

5. OK, I'm tearing up now. This is really a big deal. Everything else aside, all of us who have

been second-class citizens since the beginning of time are getting our "full-fledged human being" papers on Thursday, and those papers get stamped in November.

8. I'm amazed at her strength and courage.

I know I'd break if I had even a fraction of that hate directed towards me.

Every time I hear an asshole yelling disgusting misogynist crap about her, it just makes me appreciate her that much more.
