Hillary: These Republicans want to round up illegals and put them in “boxcars”

posted at 3:21 pm on August 28, 2015 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, a little Nazi allusion to go with yesterday’s terrorism slur from someone who once said, as a United States senator, “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants.” Not only was she adamantly against illegal immigrants, she called for creating a national entry/exit ID card to keep track of people who’ve been admitted to the country legally — and maybe not just those people. Quote: “Although I’m not a big fan of it, we might have to move towards an ID system even for citizens.”

Hillary’s prior support for cracking down on illegals will come up during this campaign, rest assured, although we’ve learned from the gay-marriage debate that Democratic voters have a seemingly limitless capacity for forgiving ideological heresies. (Then again, as we’re seeing with Trumpmania, so do Republican voters.) Here’s a Daily Beast reporter watching an RNC oppo researcher hard at work sifting through archives in the Clinton Library:

Today is already a good day.

He found something while perusing through the first lady’s press office records: an old interview in which she appears to talk about the importance of keeping undocumented immigrants out of the country. 

“It’s a complete change from what she’s trying to do now where she wants everybody to come in—it’s just something we could possibly hit on,” he says.

Peter Spiliakos made what I thought was a good point about Trump’s appeal this morning at NRO. It may be true that Trumpmania is largely a reaction to Bush 3.0, but it’s also a reaction to the garden-variety slipperiness of pols like Marco Rubio and Scott Walker. Spiliakos:

Marco Rubio went from opposing upfront amnesty, to supporting upfront amnesty, to opposing it again. Scott Walker went from supporting amnesty and a path to citizenship to opposing it, and then went from opposing birthright citizenship to supporting birthright citizenship.

For many Trump supporters, the actions of Rubio and Walker show that all of politics is a charade. Any shiny new conservative who appears to be an alternative to both Bush and Trump will turn out to be the same as Bush. Every politician’s election year promises are just a different combination of lies and misdirections to cover up the exact same governing agenda.

That’s got to be a key part of Bernie Sanders’s appeal to lefties too, I’d imagine, even more so than it is for Trump. Trump’s slippery too about his positions, after all, whereas Sanders has been a man of devoutly left-wing politics for decades. Hillary voted for the Iraq war, then denounced it; she opposed gay marriage for years, then reversed herself after Obama did; now she’s blowing progressive dog whistles about deporting illegals as a form of Nazism despite having declared her own opposition to illegal immigrants — not illegal immigration but illegal immigrants — after she’d already been elected to federal office. She’s an opportunistic joke. But she’s got lottttttts of money in her campaign treasury (and lots of Democratic power brokers in her back pocket). Sorry, Bernie fans. Don’t worry, though: Come next summer, when the Nazi analogies are in full bloom, you’ll have gotten over it.

Hillary: These Republicans want to round up illegals and put them in “boxcars”

One of Hillary’s most insane lies.

But Hillary fully supports Planned Parenthood killing babies, dissecting them and then selling the bodies whole or in parts.

Trump will crush her. I hope she’s the nominee.

No we don’t! Trains require crews and fuel to operate, which means money. We would rather save money by cutting off their ability to leech from the U.S. Taxpayer and have them leave exactly how they came… on foot!

make an ad showing Hillary’s comments as a United States senator, “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants.”

then show the facts surrounding the Kate Steinle murder

then show the current “boxcar” Hillary’s bs.

then show Trump talking about Kate,

then show him schooling Ramos

Maybe liberal parasites, sure: but not illegals.

One of Hillary’s most insane lies.

RJL on August 28, 2015 at 4:39 PM

I think it’s worse than just lying. I think it’s a symptom of a larger psychosis that all leftists are stricken with.

Leftists like to compose bits of hyper emotional rhetoric and hyperbole that they think might sound clever or bold or both. But it’s usually in response to a point that no one is making.

In this instance, she’s claiming that Republicans want to round up illegals in boxcars (something leftists have actually done), even though no Republican said any such thing. But she’s so anxious to belt out this bit of rhetoric that she or her writers came up with, that she’s not willing for anyone to say it so that she can make this melodramatic counterpoint.

It’s one of the weirdest aspects of a leftist’s psychopathology; the proclivity to boldly respond to points that were never made.

In any case, I’m not sure that talking about illegals in boxcars will help her win over “racist white male voters” that HuffPo thought might put her over the top in 2008.

Hillary’s case is not an attractive one, because what she’ll essentially be saying (and has been saying, although very carefully) is that she can attract more racist white male voters than Obama can. Nonetheless, and as I said, she has a case.

I spent the weekend listening to one commentator after another saying that Obama has it locked up, it’s a done deal. I dunno. Hillary is the true whack-a-mole and if she survives on Tuesday, it will be a whole new ballgame. And it will be all because of white men. Plus ca change.

Star Bird on August 29, 2015 at 4:55 AM

Brock Robamney on August 29, 2015 at 5:51 AM

She’s scraping the bottom of the Clinton barrel. She came back to the trail from the Hamptons vacay with Slick who probably told her to get out there and gin up the vitriol, sound like dear leader when he misses a putt, and work the crowd into a frenzy. This was Killary trying to sound presidential. Her problem is, she’s more low energy than JEB! If what she says is ever deemed extreme, she can always walk it back.

rik on August 29, 2015 at 10:38 AM

This gets us back to strategy and why Trump is at the top of the polls. The typical response for this kind of attack from Hillary would be to defend their position and then retreat back into a hole. The reason is they are always worried about looking bad, cold hearted, being called “racist”. Another reason is some in the GOP like illegal immigration for the cheap labor so they use the excuse that we better not offend Latinos or we will never win another election again.

However, if you are taking a patriotic conservative populist position here is how I would respond –

Hillary cares more about illegals than about American workers. She does not care that illegals are causing Americans to lose their jobs or not be hired. She does not care that illegals are depressing the wages of Americans. She does not care that illegals are killing Americans after being released from jail, when any American citizen would still be in jail. And on and on…and it is not surprising considering how the Clinton Foundation works. Her family loves owning gold mines in Haiti in order to exploit Haitians to enrich Team Clinton. She loves exploiting 3rd world labor, and she would love to exploit American workers too. She really is the American Cecil Rhodes…

You cannot fight fire without fire…The typical GOP candidate would respond like that. Trump would…

Putting illegals in boxcars sounds like code to me associating this with the Nazis putting Jews in cattle cars, boxcars, to send them to extermination camps.

Yes, but the real issue here is that the things she says about Republicans is pure fantasy. Not one Republican said or even insinuated putting people into boxcars as leftists are known to have done.

So you really have to begin to wonder, who exactly these imaginary Republicans are the Democrats are holding this discourse with.

Kenny Bania on August 29, 2015 at 2:40 PM

Read this and educate yourself, Kneepad:

Does Hillary Clinton believe her husband’s presidency set the Democratic Party back?

. . . Hillary Clinton has been compelled on a variety of occasions to renounce her husband’s greatest achievements. In the wake of the unrest in Baltimore last month, Clinton delivered a speech in which she advocated for an end to “mass incarceration” in America. Inherent in that address was her contention, one shared by her husband, that the landmark 1994 crime bill was discriminatory.

During his tenure, Bill Clinton signed into law measures that expanded the death penalty, promoted longer prison terms, funded the construction of new prisons, eliminated inmate amenities, barred felons from living in public housing, and discouraged judicial discretion. “We went too far,” Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin lamented on May 1 when reflecting on the Clinton presidency’s approach to crime and justice. “I think that the results,” Hillary Clinton said of the justice reforms that she lobbied for strongly in 1994, “have been an unacceptable increase in incarceration across the board.”

While it takes a fair bit of inference to identify Clinton’s stances on these issues, seeing as she is fond of maintaining vague and amorphous policy positions, it’s clear that Hillary Clinton does not regard her husband’s presidency as one replete with successes. That’s not a personal conviction, of course; you would be hard pressed to identify any sincerely held and necessarily constricting values espoused by the former secretary of state. Her disparagements of her husband’s legacy are solely designed to appeal to an influential subset in the Democratic Party that has veered wildly leftward in the interim 15 years. If Hillary Clinton is to win the White House, it seems that her fellow Democrats will make sure that she is compelled to renounce all her husband’s works in the process.

She’s all yours, Chelsea!
