It’s pretty simple, actually.
People on the left continue to rail against Hillary Clinton and the tentacles of Team Clinton because other people on the left continue to defend her with demonstrably false garbage like:
“I am sick of all this not stop hate directed at her just because she had the audacity to do the right things that every single Pub men, and a fair amount of Dem men, do or would do every day, if given the opportunity.”
“YES! Hillary is a f@cking politician!!!! (And a damn good one at that.)”
The legitimate criticism lobbed at Hillary Clinton is based on things like an undeniable history of hawkish foreign policy advocacy, of support for unbalanced free-trade agreements, of an intimately symbiotic relationship with Wall Street and the donor class, of using the vulnerable for votes and then chucking them under the bus for political gain (see: black community, Latin/Hispanic community, LGBTQ community, etc.), of a steadfast commitment to political obfuscation, etc.
How is any of that the right thing? I can view all of that as a toxic, unqualified mess without a misogynistic bone in my body. It only becomes misogynistic if I refuse to vote for Hillary, but then support Chuck Schumer or Cory Booker or any of the male Dems who demonstrate similar behavior.
Additionally, a “damn good” politician, while planning to run for POTUS, wouldn’t have gone around with her hand out to deep-pocketed institutions that were hurting and repulsing most Americans. A “damn good” politician, while planning to run for POTUS, wouldn’t have secreted a private server in her residence given the obvious climate of hostility toward lack of political transparency. A “damn good” politician, in the middle of a presidential election, wouldn’t have made the deplorable/irredeemable comment. A “damn good” politician, in the middle of a presidential election, wouldn’t have gone out of her way to compliment the Reagans for doing something they notoriously did not do. A “damn good” politician, with the unyielding support of the non-Fox MSM and Democratic establishment, wouldn’t have lost a presidential election to Donald fucking Trump.
If there weren’t so many Clinton dead-enders on the left, including many influential voices, refusing to acknowledge the obvious—i.e. she was a better candidate than Trump, but still a horrible, horrible candidate given the political climate—then you wouldn’t see so many other people on the left pushing back.
There aren’t many (if any) voices on the left arguing Paul Ryan or Trump is a “damn good” politician so there is no need to point out their myriad flaws.
Like I said, pretty simple.
