Why are they still so afraid of Hillary? With all the attacks you'd think she's the POTUS

But she is a private citizen!

It smells like fear...

3. It's their go-to plan to stir up the base of rednecks and racists against 'fake news'. NT

5. Guilt. Republicans, Putin, Trump,

and the media (social & traditional) horses they rode in on.

They know the facts of the election better than any of us because they engineered the outcome of the election.

Guilty actors with guilty knowledge just can't let go of 2016.

6. Murdoch wants the Nation to

never allow the Clinton Family a single minute of peace. Started with Murdoch's planting the flag of suspicion in 1991 with Alies,Stone,Attwater,and Cohn . Once he had Limpballs in his corner,well,the rest is History with new chapters written daily.

8. Until they see the next power players like the Clintons...

 

In the Democratic Party, they will continue to attack the Clintons. There is currently a void when it comes to extreme clout held by an individual or individuals like the Clintons in the party. That can be seen as a good or bad thing by Democrats. For Republicans it has left them looking. Until they find what they are looking for they will just keep going with the Clintons. Clinton=Democratic Party.

10. The right-wing is driven by fear and anger, and they are skilled at directing fabricated "outrage."

The entire Benghazi flap is a signal example of how effectively they manufactured and stoked irrational rage against Hillary Clinton. Then there's the whole phony Obama-birth-certificate business.

Without a bogeyman, right-wing ideology would fizzle out. It demands "enemies" to function and lumber forward. And right now, Hillary (private citizen) and Obama (private citizen) are familiar and still worth some mileage in the RW narrative.

11. Well said

She isn't a person at this point, just a meme to attach their fear and hatred to, used by the rubes' handlers whenever they want without any need to attach the attack to reality. Benghazi and emails are sub-memes. They use Obama too but Hillary draws special hatred, mostly no doubt because she is a woman who had the audacity to get things done.

14. On the nose, word for word.

I’m betting that, if you scanned a right-winger’s brain (I know, right?), every time the name “Hillary” was spoken, that little mini-mite of a cortex would light up like a 4th of July sparkler.

15. In RightWingistan, Islam is the new Communism, and we lefties are the dupes

Because lefties hate everything, right? Christmas. Santa. God. Guns.

Yes indeed, their “Kremlin Menace” cards have long since expired.

12. She IS the POTUS.

She's powerful and she's right and they are desperate to break her in fact or in fantasy.

If we could keep our shit together and rally behind her, not to make her run again but to show they can't break us either, she could be the symbol for all they cannot do to us.
