PBS’ Judy Woodruff asked Clinton, “The midterms: conventional wisdom is, not a good year for the Democrats. As you know, when your husband was president, President Clinton, under President Obama, huge losses in the House races in the middle of the first term. Do you have any reason to believe it’s going to be different this year?”

Hillary answered:

Well, I know the history, so I’m aware of the challenges, but I’m not about to throw in the towel or give up. I mean, I think it depends upon, you know, number one, uh, whether Democrats are willing to point out the extremism that has captured the Republican party. And to make it clear, this is not about special interest groups, this is not about one group of Americans versus another, this is about the rise of authoritarianism within our own country. This is a direct attack on our democracy. So if Democrats are willing, you know, not only to address the issues that are kitchen table issues, which we do pretty well, but also to raise some of the concerns about what kind of country we’re going to have, uh, I think that we can do better than is predicted.

It’s very clear now: the Democrats have decided to cloak their assault on the foundations of our free republic and their embrace of authoritarianism as a defense of “our democracy” against the authoritarianism supposedly coming from Trump and his supporters.

Yet it is a Democrat administration (contrary to Jen Psaki’s claims), not a Republican one, that has set up the Disinformation Governance Board within the Department of Homeland Security. But even when the Board was announced, its chief, Nina Jankowicz, explained that it would be all about protecting, not destroying, Americans’ First Amendment rights. “A HUGE focus of our work,” she tweeted, “and indeed, one of the key reasons the Board was established, is to maintain the Dept’s committment [sic] to protecting free speech, privacy, civil rights, & civil liberties.” Jankowicz has also claimed that contrary to the witness of your lying eyes, it is Leftists and minorities, not conservatives, who are being censored on social media. (Who? When? Where?).
