Hillary Clinton tried to play the tough guy last week, but her own words came back to bite her.
After suggesting that her followers should be less than civil with conservatives, Clinton found herself and several other high-profile Democrats the targets of a bomb-delivery plot earlier this week — and now, she’s publicly reacting.
On the hit-list of Democrats and their supporters who were sent packages containing pipe bombs earlier this week were the Clintons, the Obamas, billionaire Democrat donor George Soros, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), and former Vice President Joe Biden, among others.
Law enforcement is reportedly still seeking out several other packages that may have been sent.
But Clinton has no one but herself to blame for this, as she has been at the forefront of this divide from day one — and has even suggested that civility with conservatives is futile.
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” she said.
But Clinton seemed to walk back that statement earlier this week, when she called for unification in the wake of the bomb crisis.
“It is a troubling time, isn’t it? And it’s a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together,” Clinton said. “We have to elect candidates who…will set goals that will lift up every Floridian and American, who will look into the future.”
But Clinton seemed to forget that by saying that Dems “cannot be civil” with Republicans, she did anything but “lift up every” American.
Her little stunt backfired and ended with extremists targeting her and several of her closest allies.
While no one should have to worry about being the target of a bomb threat, Hillary only perpetuated this violence when she advocated it against conservatives.
Liberals only want unity and civility on their end, and they’ve made that abundantly clear by calling for violence against conservatives.
Someone should tell the Dems to be careful what they wish for.
