This is getting absolutely embarrassing, but Hillary Clinton does have a lot of free time on her hands. She went on a whine tour after her shocking 2016 loss. She set up a super PAC to help Democrats and fight the agenda of President Donald J. Trump. She may not be running again in 2020, but she’s still taking her swings at the Trump administration. They’re all so tiring, though they’re aimed at keeping the left-wingers rabid. A popular one is that the slogan “Make America Great Again” is a white nationalist war cry. It’s not. She even tweeted an article from The Huffington Post to make her point:
The white nationalists certainly think MAGA is a white nationalist slogan. https://t.co/Pp8Z7hBFRc— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) April 9, 2019
Alexandre Bissonette wore the hat.
A Canadian, Bissonette hadn’t voted for Donald Trump. He lived in a French-speaking province, far from the U.S. president’s campaign rallies and “America first” appeals. But some of the first photos to emerge of the 27-year-old after he stormed a Quebec City mosque and killed six Muslim men in January 2017 showed him wide-eyed with a slight smirk and a red “Make America Great Again” cap casting a shadow over his pallid face.
“Make America Great Again” has become more than a U.S. political slogan. For Bissonette and other white nationalist, radical right and anti-immigrant extremists all over the world, it’s a symbol; a kind of political messaging that transcends the specifics of country and language.
“The hat and the MAGA acronym have really become shorthand for this white nationalist movement,” said Barbara Perry, a professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and an expert on the far right.
Searching for MAGA symbolism is one of the easiest ways to notice online extremists and members of hate groups, Perry and other researchers have found — a game of “Where’s Waldo?” for racists. A 2018 study by extremism researcher J.M. Berger that analyzed tens of thousands of alt-right Twitter accounts found the most common word in their profiles was “MAGA” and the most frequent pairing of words was “Trump supporter.”
Okay, first of all, Bissonette is a crazy person. Second, is this nuts we’ve become? It’s a great slogan—and both Democrats and Republicans have used it. Ronald Reagan used it, as did Bill Clinton, which is why Hillary probably should’ve just shut up about this whole matter. Slick Willy used it a lot during his political career. Is he a racist, a far right-winger, or an extremist? Is he a white nationalist? No. Bill Clinton is often wrong, but he’s no white nationalist. Trump derangement syndrome has become so bad that anything related to the man is seen as a sign that this small, whacko fringe slice that happen to wear MAGA hats are mainstream. They’re not. They’re still losers and they’re still in the basement of politics. And they’re going to stay there. A huge slice of Democrats were members of the Ku Klux Klan. When are they going to be reamed out for backing a group that’s actually a white supremacist organization? And just like these loony toon groups, they’re small. The Klan’s membership today is less than 10,000. Everyone freak out!
Hillary Clinton said that black youth were “super-predators” to push for passage of President Bill Clinton’s 1994 crime bill. Is she a racist?
All Trump has done so far is push for border security, enforcement of our immigration laws, cut taxes, cut regulations, created jobs, boosted paychecks, and catapulted consumer and small business confidence to record highs. Oh yeah, and the Dow Jones has been marching along at a solid pace as well. This is winning. This is mainstream. This is good for the country. It’s sad that the Left’s warped; authoritarian politically correct ethos views this as a white nationalist agenda.
