Hillary Clinton: ‘Civility Can Start Again’ When Democrats Take Congress

state-dept-clinton-emails clinton FBI probe Clinton Hillary Civility DemocratsHillary Clinton rejected calls for a return to civility in American politics during an interview on Tuesday, arguing instead that civility can only return once Democrats take back control of Congress.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN’s 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. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Clinton, who frequently maligns President Trump and his fellow Republicans for disregarding the norms of civility in public discourse, went on to cite a number of high-profile public controversies that she believes display Republicans’ unscrupulous approach to politics.

“I remember what they did to me for 25 years — the falsehoods, the lies, which unfortunately people believe because the Republicans have put a lot of time, money, and effort in promoting them,” Clinton said. “So when you’re dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding, it’s — you can be civil, but you can’t overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections.”

Clinton announced on Monday a 13-stop North American speaking tour with her husband. The event, “An Evening with the Clintons,” offers attendees a “one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history.”

The tour is scheduled to begin on November 8, and tickets are being sold for as much as $288.44.

Hillary Clinton, the Democrats and civility are opposites from other sides of the spectrum. There is no civility where the end justifies the means – anything goes in her world view, nothing too sleazy, too crass, too violent, …

Peter Cazzolla

So, if I understand lieing Hilary, if the Dems do not get political control, they will continue to behave in the manner that is indeitfying their Democrat Party, anarchistic, lawless, physical intimidation, etc., etc. They can not regain control. Pray like you never prayed before.

This woman is so out of touch with reality, she does not know what civility means. Show me a democrat who can discuss their party platform without using words like bigot, racist, or sexist. The Democrat vocabulary consists name calling, insults, and their favorite past time, lying to everyone. I will never believe a word Hillary Clinton says, or any other liberal Democrat for that matter.

Please, people, stop reporting on this sad, disheveled character. She’s clearly insane and the attention she gets is ridicule.

The Clintons have never been civil. Why would they start now?

Their modis operendi has always been seek and destroy when it comes to anyone who opposes them. According to many, some Clinton adversaries have even lost their lives!

If those of us who love America do not vote this November. We will get what we deserve. An America again placed on the fast track of decline.

This is what happens when people like the Clintons don’t get punished for their crimes. It emboldens them.

David Whitton

Golly Hillary, you need to watch the news now and then. Maybe you’d realize your “civil” Democratic Party is turning into a domestic terror group scaring people who only think differently than you do. I guess “civil” to you means that everyone believes what you do without exception or comment. Please retire and go somewhere very far away.

Randy Geiger

Mts. Clinton talking civility. REALLY? Guess she doesn’t hear herself talk. Must be early signs of dementia or a little too much ego pie.

Chris

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

Then why would she have *any* expectations that we could/should be civil with the Democrats?

Franie

WHY ISN’T THIS DISPICABLE WOMAN NOT WEARING AN ORANGE JUMPSUIT? Just her incivility is dangerous in and of itself, forget about all the dead friends and acquaintances that have mysteriously dropped dead around this woman. Forget about the ‘Pay to Play’ schemes, Benghazi, and the highly illegal ‘Uranium’ deal, this woman Hillary, is advocating absolute anarchy and seditious treason…ARREST HER NOW before our country suffers YET AGAIN, from her conniving and deceitful plodding to undo our Constitution and destroy our country.

Wayne Peterkin

Hillary Clinton fans the flames of incivility and potential violence while claiming to be above it all. She is too stupid to realize that if those fanned flames result in the next civil war as more intelligent hope it will not, her beloved Progressive/Socialist tyrannical movement will be targeted in that conflict. Those “progressives” who want to destroy this nation mystified me in the past. If they don’t like it here why don’t they just leave? I think the answer is that in another nation they would have no hope of ever achieving the ultimate political power they covet above all else. They have hope of achieving that power here by subverting our nation and enslaving all of us in the process.

Why is this miserable excuse of a human still walking around FREE! WHY?

Mamaw5

You will never see Dems in control of our beloved country again……..is my sincere hope!!! You and your evil companions need to be exiled! Lock you up and absolutely throw away the key and location! How is that for civility? LOL mamaw5

Mimi

Democrats have no shame – talk about incivility – it would be funny, if it weren’t so serious. They know no bounds when it comes to dirty politics!!!!

Phyllis

She is describing the democrat party. They haven’t shown civility to republicans in a good 50 years.

Wouldn’t exactly consider
Hillary
An authority on civility
Just ask James Carville and
Bill’s victims
And don’t forget about
Her numerous screeching rants

What Hillary Clinton describes are the Democrats. As always, they point the accusing finger at their opposition while doing the very things they supposedly decry. Democrat control of Congress will not bring back civility to the political debate. The current state of political dissent using violence as a means to an end has its roots in the Democrat party and it is being fueled by left wing advocates with deep pockets. Much of the so-called civil unrest is being engineered by socialist groups whose main goal is to grab power from the people. The people shouting and destroying property do not even know what they are protesting. They are simply acting as they are told by the organizers who are paying them to act outraged. Hillary Clinton is now getting face time on the media again because the Democrats are desperate to gain back control, and they will use even… Read more »

It would be nice if she was specific about what the horrible thing Republicans did to her 25 years ago. I extremely dislike folks complaining and then not giving any specifics. If I remember, she should have been indicted but Republicans didn’t for political reasons. Best for her to permanently get off the stage.

This is a Call to other Democrats Harris Booker Waters to incite violence time to arrest people they’re not able to win so they’ll destroy

You call it strength. I call it cowardice!
