Hillary Clinton: You Can’t Be Civil With GOP Because They Want to ‘Destroy What You Stand For’

Hillary Clinton

In an interview with CNN, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke on the debate over civility that has been spurred with recent confrontations between protesters and government officials.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told Christiane Amanpour.

“That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again,” she continued. “But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Watch the video below:

“You heard how the Republican members — led by Mitch McConnell, the president — really demeaned the confirmation process, insulted and attacked not only Dr. Ford but women who were speaking out,” Clinton added.

Other Democrats have made similar remarks about civility, such as Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii).

Talking with CNN, Hirono said the actions of activists chasing Republican members out of restaurants is something that just “happens”:

“This is what happens because when you look at white supremacists and all that, this is what’s coming forth in our country. There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country.”

“This is the kind of activism that occurs and people make their own decisions,” Hirono added. “If they violate the law, then they have to account for that.”

I think he’s Democrats are trying to incite Civil Disobedience and violence which is against the law I believe they are to be tried and prosecuted because these things are actually happening and it’s because the Democratic Leadership is endorsing it

I think that there are two agendas in this country
One that wants to follow the constitution and one that wants to change it.To bad we cannot compromise.
I do not like Hillary, she is very poeerful and therefore she can get away with anything. Thank god she is not the president or the world would be in very desprste shape while she just got richer and richer and sold the soul of our country for the almighty $$

I don’t see people on the right, conservatives, rioting and vandalizing, and tormenting people with whom they disagree. I don’t see them going to their homes and terrorizing them. That is a tactic of the left. And Hillary, what we respect isn’t strength absent any morality. That’s called a bully. Bullies are strong, bullies abuse their power and strength, rather like the left has done. No, we respect strength of integrity, the strength of moral conviction, the strength demonstrated in self restraint. Things I have seldom seen from the left.
