Default Hillary Clinton and "civility"

Well, I suppose that I should not be surprised.

Hillary Clinton now says that civility is a passe concept:

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

Oh, for anyone interested, here is the link:

Since she once characterized those who dared to disagree with her left-wing political views as "deplorables," this is really not entirely surprising.

Nonetheless, it is a bit disappointing...

The part in blue.

I wonder if she realizes that a statement such as that can apply to all political parties?
Essentially, she is calling on every political party to abandon civility.
Why is she not calling for Democrats to reach across the aisle?

Hillary is doing her best to remain relevant in the party. She believes this is the best approach. Based upon statements made by party leaders, she may be correct as very few in the DNC leadership have said or done anything to tamp down incivility, but have doubled down on it.

Democrats had better get a grip on things before they get out of hand. They should remember that they are the party that decries the ownership of weapons by citizens. That could come back to haunt them should things become more violent.

Reaching across the aisle is what the right is always supposed to do to get what they want.

Democrats create civil unrest to get what they what.

This is what diversity looks like to a Liberal.

For the first time, I agree with Hillary. One of the reasons I voted for President Trump.
