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.”

  1. Swillary has a lot of gall. “Women who were speaking out” has to be the epitome of hypocrisy coming from a drunken tramp whose husband is a philandering rapist.
    The polyester pariah is as rank as week old hog slop and should absolutely be ashamed of herself. Her decisions have all been suspect, some blatantly anti-American, some resulting in loyal Americans’ deaths.
    The very idea that the POS pair are going out on some sort of braggadocio tour is sickening.
    Hell awaits the Clintons.

    • LOL…When was Bill Clinton found guilty of rape? Otis, you possess no shortage of gall yourself. The Trump party spent the last 2 weeks claiming you needed evidence and a guilty verdict. Why did Dr. Ford not report her claim of assault to the police—sound familiar? Juanita Broaddick did not report her allegation of a 1978 rape until 1998 during the Paula Jones hearing. The allegation she first made public in 1999. The charge was investigated by Ken Starr and the Trumpsters’ hero du jour Brett/Bart Kavanaugh. You can not charge a sitting POTUS, but you can charge him when he leaves office—-WHEN did you think he was charged? YOU love philanderers! YOU love braggadocio. YOU love anti-American decisions. The tour should be right up your alley! You will have to fight Patriot for the gatekeeper job at the pearly gates. He thinks it is his.

      • Bill Clinton was accused of rape and sexual assault by numerous women dear! Kavanagh had ONE lying LiEberal, activist, radical, claim that he raped her 40 yrs ago, just a week before his confirmation! Coincience? i think not! The woman has already been paid over $700,000 for her LIES!!

        • Dr Ford claimed sexual assault and potentially attempted murder… not rape. She was never raped. Delusional and shaky but not raped

      • YOU love to hear yourself talk I’m sure; YOU don’t know me and YOU don’t know what all I love, or don’t.. Perhaps YOU should change your real name to Anonymous, then you can take credit for all sorts of witty sayings and adages; As it stands, Anon, you seem lost and witless in the Dumbocrat sea.
        Please enjoy the Clintons Tour. They need the money.

        • Holy shit! Are you freakin delusional! Monica Lewinski. Blue dress, DNA! Bill was a fucking douche. He destroyed that girls life. I guess you are ok with that? A rational person would look at the BIG picture and see tha Billy boy was a phillandiring COCKBAG! DNA does not lie!,

  2. Still have a little vomit in my mouth. Every time she opens her yap is another log on the fire that proves she’s truly psychotic.

  3. We can’t have civility while the left is opening calling for violence against republicans. She is such an embarrassment to herself.

  4. I am a Republican, and I want Mrs. Clinton to know that I have always been civil and polite to people. I hold the doors open to let people go in ahead of me. I always say please and thank you. My parents brought me up wonderfully, and I got decent grades in school. I have been married for 50 years to the love of my life. I do and say what I please, with no help from anybody else.

    Saying that, I truly believe in the Trump administration. I abhor the barbarianism of the Left. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for all the dirty tactics.

  5. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Funny, I feel exactly the same way about the policie practiced by you, Obozo, and the Dims. Your troll participants here receive the same treatment.

  7. This stupid hag thinks REPUBLICANS have damaged america???? Her and her criminals have almost destroyed the america i know,i hope she has a coronary…

  8. 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.

    • So how do you feel about a president that has clearly been proven to have cheated on his wife with a porn star months after the birth of his son? I think that moral compass might be a little off, Jon.

      • Haven’t really thought there have been many presidents who have had a high moral standard-
        Really looking more at what they have been able to do- that is why Bill C got re elected- the economy stupid.

  9. Hillary you have accomplished nothing you committed treason with the e-mails killed men in Bengazi consistently lies double talks wonan ‘s rights let us accuse Judge Kavanaugh no corroboration but Bill sexual treatment of several women should be overlooked Who do you people think you are!! America does not want you at the helm of this country what don’t you understand !! You belong in a Federal courtroom with charges filed against you for all your crimes!!!

  10. 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 $$

    • Your ‘observation’ has one fatal flaw. ‘Compromising’ on following our Constitution is the death-knell of America. Our country’s government is unique, and if one doesn’t like it, there are 191 others to choose from. Obama’s comment that “America should be more like France” was just ONE of his traitorous sentiments.

  11. 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
