Hillary’s Breitbart Threat Should Be Big Red Flag
Nationalism vs. Globalism — The Real Election Issue
“We’ve had a conservative media in this country for a while. I don’t always like what they have to say, but I respect their role and their right to exist.” — deputy communications director Christina Reynolds
The above quote was from a fundraising email sent out by Hillary Clinton’s campaign this past Thursday. It was the lead-up to, what should be, one of the biggest red flags from her campaign so far.
“Breitbart is something different. They make Fox News look like a Democratic Party pamphlet. They’re a different breed altogether — not just conservative but radical, bigoted, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic conspiracy peddlers who never have been and never should be anywhere near the levers of power in this country.”
Reynolds says one of the goals of Clinton’s campaign is to destroy Breitbart completely.
It doesn’t matter if you hate or love Breitbart News — it doesn’t matter who it is — replace Breitbart with Medium if you don’t understand the impact of a statement like this.
The fact destroying Breitbart is a goal of her campaign with so many important issues facing the country is worrisome on it’s own merit, but to even suggest the First Amendment is in her crosshairs is very revealing.
Clinton has been trying to convince legal gun owners she is not out to eliminate the Second Amendment — remember, just some common sense gun laws — trust her.
No doubt, she will say exactly the same thing about Breitbart — she just wants to shut their website down because they’re too radical or anti-liberal or whatever reason she chooses to give.
I could offer some defense for Breitbart but there is no need. They don’t publish anything close to what could be considered illegal — they are anti-liberal and outspoken — and not part of the establishment media.
This statement reinforces what many people, including myself, believe this election is really about — it’s not Clinton vs. Trump — it’s Globalism vs. Nationalism. This is what makes this election different, and potentially world changing, more so than any in our lifetimes.
Many liberals, especially younger ones, have embraced a romantic version of Globalism — tear down the borders, everyone a citizen of the earth, hugging and singing Kumbaya, but what they fail to recognize is Globalism could care less about the American Constitution or The Bill of Rights — or any individual rights or freedoms for that matter.
So when you hear a known Globalist speaking about picking and choosing which news sites have a right to exist, or a government’s ability to change which parts of a citizen’s inherent rights they will allow you to keep, be very afraid.
And when you still have a chance to prevent a known Globalist from getting into a position of power, do whatever you can peacefully and legally to keep that from happening.
