Yesterday on my car radio I heard a clip from a Hillary Clinton speech:
“Those Republicans are going to do everything they can possibly do to keep you from voting, if you’re poor, if you’re black, if you’re Latino…” (Or words to precisely that effect: I’m going by memory.)
Hmm, which Republican candidate is in charge of suppressing the Latino vote–Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio? And of course Ben Carson is on hand to chase blacks away from the polling place.
This rhetoric is worse than ridiculous, worse than shameful.
It is a sin.
“Lemme see here… If I can raise up animosity where none need exist, if I can make groups of citizens fear other groups, and set people at each other’s throats who otherwise would be at peace… If I can make people fearful of things that are not, in fact, happening, and not going to happen… And then hold myself up to them as the only leader who can protect them from this imaginary conspiracy to deprive them of their right to vote… Oh, yeah, I can gain by this!”
Our Lord said, Blessed are the peacemakers.
What about those who purposely destroy the peace, for their own personal, political advantage? Who cause some to hate others without a cause?
Politics can be a pretty loathsome business; but once again, Hillary Clinton has shown that she is the lowest of the low.
We as a nation need our heads examined, allowing low characters like this to lord it over us. We really must be some kind of stupid.
