Steve Sailer is a great asset but there are times when I think that his headlines are too clever by half.
A case in point was Wednesday’s Clinton and Merkel: Rhetorical Momentum vs. Diminishing Marginal Utility. Those who struggled past the uninviting caption found political dynamite. In her South Carolina victory speech Clinton apparently said
“Instead of building walls, we need to be tearing down barriers. We need to show that we really are all in this together.”
Steve caustically observes
…who exactly are the “we” Hillary says “are all in this together.” Does Hillary’s “we” refer to Americans…or to anybody who shows up at those hateful border barriers?
and goes on to observe
…you might say that Hillary is an aged and cynical politician, and that whatever her speechifying, she wouldn’t actually do anything so stupid as to give encouragement to a flash mob from south of the border.
But you would have been tempted to say the same thing a year ago about the chancellor of Germany.
I of course think Merkel has been bribed to destroy Germany for the reasons I laid out in Merkel: Gone Mad—Or Bribed? GOP Example Suggests The Latter. Many find this inconceivable. Far fewer I think would find it inconceivable that the Clinton Inc outfit would accept a bribe. What did she need a non-State Department Server for anyway? Calling Marc Rich!
