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

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.

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.… Read more »

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.
