Hillary Sends Thanks To “Activist Bitches” [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

“Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks,” Clinton says in the video. “Thanks for your feminism, for your activism, and all I can hope is you keep up the really important, good work.” Off screen, someone can be heard saying, “activist bitches supporting bitches,” which Clinton then repeats, laughing.

“And let me just say, this is directed to the activist bitches supporting bitches, so let’s go,” she says. It’s unclear exactly when or where the video was taken. It was posted on social media hours after The New York Times published a report revealing that Clinton kept a top adviser on her 2008 campaign after he was accused by a campaign staffer of sexual harassment.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    I am sure some Dump voters will scold her for language because hypocrisy.

    • Bambino

      Hillary Clinton is one of the valued squirrel the GOP, the dotard base, scamvengelist and the MSM still trying to make a few political bucks from.

      • And has been since at least 1993. (In Arkansas since about 1974.)

        I worked for a CEO in 2003 whose mail I opened. He was a Democrat actually but got tons of fundraising mail from the GOP and almost all of it was WE HAVE TO STOP HILLARY! It was bizarre how they characterized her. No one could be that evil. And then of course there are the leaked emails where she is the opposite of who they claim she is. It’s obvious that in private she’s a caring, thoughtful person. You don’t have to agree with her positions, but this projection onto her of a persona that is complete fiction was decades in the making. My concern going back to 2008 primaries was that she wouldn’t be able to undo 30 years of smear campaigns, and she wasn’t. I’m not sure anyone could.

    • cleos_mom

      That’s as it should be. I’ve heard rumors that she doesn’t even cross her ankles when seated.

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    Hillary, please, we appreciate what you tried to do; but we’ve had to move on. Please do the same.

    • Dwight Williamson

      Hillary will never be irrelevant or in need to move on. She is a touchstone and an icon for tens of millions. I would still vote for her in 2020. The reasons shit gibbon is in the White House , are clear . James Comey , Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin wanted a ball of silly putty pretending to lead this country. Give em hell Hill. I’m with her!

      • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

        She is a touchstone, alright. I voted for her too, but we are kidding ourselves not to accept there is a visceral hatred of her in many key areas of the country, enough in fact that a wildly incompetent narcissist kleptomaniac could get more votes than her. It would be better for all of us is she exited the stage. Don’t think for one minute the Dems can’t throw the November 2018 elections. From here on in I lump her in with the Jill Steins.

        • Tulle Christensen

          Trump did not get more votes than Hillary, He lost by nearly 3 million votes…

          • fuow

            Yup, to defeat her it took the combined power of the Russian government, Diebold, the entire right wing of this country, Faux News and leftist disengagement (elections don’t matter, we can just undo it all the day after the next election, both were actually written in comments, here, in 2016).
            That says a lot about her.
            We are in a far worse situation than a fuck of a lot of us on the left have grasped.

          • GayOldLady

            You left out the Russian Twitter bots and the Russian Facebook anti-Hillary ads.

          • fuow

            I did. It’s such a long list! I admire Hillary. Had it been me, I’d have just said ‘fuck off’ and gone into a well-deserved retirement.

          • GayOldLady

            I’ve said the same, many times. She’s been in public life for decades and during most of it she’s been attacked relentlessly from the right. She’s been accused of every sort of crime imaginable. She’s been scrutinized constantly and still THEY HAVE FOUND NOTHING to bring her down. She’s a better woman than I.

        • skyweaver

          She’s not making a stump speech, she made a video and uploaded it. She’s allowed to do so, and she’s allowed to speak her mind. And I don’t think anyone is kidding themselves about anything. The fact that she dares to not be invisible despite the visceral hatred is inspirational to a lot of women who go about their daily lives dealing with the same

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            Didn’t you get the memo. Unlike every other political personality, pundit and/or opinion maker, Hillary Clinton is forbidden to have any opinions and she’s now required to remain silent, because you know, she’s a strong, unbowed, not taking anyone’s shit kind of woman….and we can’t have that, can we? /s

          • cleos_mom

            Of course we can’t have that. Since when do “touchstones” talk?

        • fuow

          Wrong. She and Jill Stein share one thing: Two ‘X’ chromosomes.
          You keep talking about ‘moving on’ and getting off the stage. That’s great for Psych 101a, not so productive for actually winning back the House and Senate this year the White House in 2020. Nothing else will stop this disaster, this attack on human rights of gays and transgender people.
          Time to put the PC and SJW mentality on hold and get out and fight. That even means voting.

          • Do Something Nice

            Yeah, too bad Martin Luther King didn’t put his SJW mentality on hold. And yeah the world was better before PC when n*gger jolkes and fag bashings were common. /snark

          • fuow

            I voted. I knocked on doors, I phone banked, I worked my ass off trying to get Hillary elected.
            Politically, I’m to Bernie’s LEFT on nearly everything. That didn’t matter – Hillary was our candidate, the only one who had it together and could win.
            So I fought for her.
            The two groups who ran to Stein and Bernie? The SJW and PC crowd.
            I absolutely prohibit racial slurs in my presence. I’ve got the broken nose and ribs of having been in the activist wing of ACT-UP! You will not tell me to sit down and shut up. There is an intolerance in that particular wing of the left which is very much akin to the repressive wing of every failed left movement of the 20th century. One can point that out and not be a racist or gay basher. That you knee-jerk attack is a symptom of that problem. Oh, and I’d add the cultural appropriation nonsense to the list, too. Only black people can fry chicken, no Scots can make burritos.

          • Do Something Nice

            The VAST majority of Sanders supporters voted for Clinton. Projecting the actions of a few onto all of Sanders supporters, all Social Justice Warriors is idiotic.

          • fuow

            Tell you what, read a bit more of the Berniebros. comments around here and get back to me.

          • unsavedheathen

            Been here the whole time, sweetie, and read all the comments. Here I am getting back to you.

            Very little measures up to the bile and vitriol spit out here at JMG against anyone questioning the logic of nominating Clinton. ( I can’t wait to get yet another taste of it as soon as I hit “post”.) I’ll say it one more time. I didn’t cost the Dems the election. I voted for Clinton in the general. But here’s the T. Logic and a casual acquaintance with the last 30 years of American politics should have raised all manner of red flags re: clinton’s viability and vulnerability. She was literally the only candidate we could have chosen who could have lost to this amoral, fascist pg. The object of 25 years of fevered “opposition research”. I don’t believe all the lies about her. But 40% of the voting population did and does. We chose a national standardbearer who 40% of the voters were convinced was/is a criminal. Murderer, child molester, embezzler… There were other contributing factors… Comey’s announcement and the FBI NYFO, Russian disinformation campaigns,… but she should never have been our nominee. And had the primary playing field been level, I don’t believe she would have been.

            I’ve been voting and marching and calling and canvasing and writing checks for Democrats since I became eligible to vote in 1980. It’s my party as much as anyone’s here.

          • cleos_mom

            And you got a classic of that kind — posted about the same time as yours.

        • Do Something Nice

          OK, I voted for Clinton and she wasn’t my first choice and I have many issues with her. But to “lump” her with Jill Stein (not Steins) is just idiotic. And calling her names isn’t moving us forward. I hate it when the anti-Bernie people here on JMG do that to Sanders and I hate it when anti-Clinton people do that to Hillary.

        • canoebum

          “I lump her in with the Jill Steins.” Wow. Jill Stein was Secretary of State during which years? How many times was she elected to the US Senate? Sorry, fella, you’re just blathering stupidity.

          • Thank you. If I were running for president in 2020, I’d already be asking to meet with her, especially to talk about foreign policy. No one is wonkier than Hillary. (It was probably a disadvantage to her as a candidate, but as a consultant it’s pure gold.) Also, she makes some very good suggestions towards the end of her book about things Democrats need to do (structural more than policy suggestions) going forward. She’s a great resource and the only reason people are suggesting that she remain silent, something no one asked Kerry, McCain or Romney to do, is sexism.

        • Dramphooey

          Yeah, if she’d just move on we may’ve had room for another wonderful story about how Trump voters still like Trump.

        • canoebum

          The wildly incompetent narcissist kleptomaniac got 2.85 million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton. At least make an effort to get your facts straight before you come on here parroting right-wing bullshit.

          • margaretpoa

            Reality is irrelevant when someone is selling an ideology. And Hillary derangement syndrome is still a popular one.

          • Tulle Christensen

            Well only if you count the 5 million illegals votes /s

        • Dwight Williamson

          Well ,lump her where you will. I will vote for someone who can beat Trump in 2020. It won’t be Kamala Harris ,Kirsten Gildebrand or Bernie. Hillary-as a candidate is over,sadly. As a force in the party not at all. The truth will never be known about the 2016 election. As for who got more electoral votes ,Trump May have had the total. As for two of the three states Stein received the margin- that would have given it to Hill. As for the popular vote ,Hillary would be the leader “legitimate”president in every other country in the world. I’d like the rest of my Saturday ,so Thanks and goodbye!

    • margaretpoa

      That’s right. Tell the woman what to do, what to say, when to say it, how to behave, etc. Because after all, she has no penis so who does she think she is speaking up?

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      WOW, do you talk down to women like this all the time or is it just her?

    • fuow

      Move on? Seriously, dude? This woman did more to stop the rolling clusterfuck bearing down upon us gay men and transgender people than anyone else. She nearly succeeded. And you say ‘move on’?
      We haven’t moved on. We’ve lost every major battle and with one more Justice gone, the entire war.
      I’m glad she’s willing to still fight for what’s right. After the way we on the left let HER down by not voting, and then blaming HER for our own failings, it is a true sign of character that she’s still willing to fight for us.

    • Dramphooey

      I could understand this if she said “I’m running in 2020” if you believe she is a bad candidate but I will never understand this reaction we always see here when Hillary Clinton just talks.

      • fuow

        Me, neither. I put it down to resentment that a woman would dare to have a cogent thought and the spine to express it.

        • Dramphooey

          Hillary Clinton: “Good morning! Could you please tell me where I can find the restroom?”

          Whoever: “Hillary, I love you. I truly do and I thank you for everything you tried to do. But it’s time to move on. We have moved on. Et cetera, et cetera.”

    • anne marie in philly

    • Aww, did the woman offend you by having an opinion?

      • cleos_mom

        Because it might make that home-cooked dinner ready at 6:05 rather than 6 PM sharp?

    • Bullshit. I’m not saying she should run again. (Actually, I’ve said the opposite.) But she has a lot of followers and can do a lot to organize people and raise money for Democrats. Sending her out to pasture would be stupid.

      • Exactly. She’s been the Democratic party’s best fundraiser and vote-getter for a decade. Someone will eventually replace her, but she’s got some years left in her to advocate for left-wing policies– and hopefully she doesn’t feel any urge to be moderate now that she’s not running for office.

        • She’s a reasonable, practical person, not an ideological purist. I’m like her in that regard. That gets me yelled at by idealists a lot. I’m used to it. We fight for as much as we can get in this round, take the deal and come back next year and fight for more. That’s how things are done. Taking nothing on behalf of people who need something and need it now is not responsible. It’s just not. She gets that. I know some on the left don’t, but they also tend to be the people who won’t starve or die from lack of medical care in the next 2, 4 or 6 years. I don’t understand that mentality. I’m glad that some people have a vision of how they want to be, but we have to build a road from here to there and that’s never going to be easy.

          • fuow

            Sadly, true. I used to accuse lesbians of lacking a sense of humor compared to us gay men.
            After 2016, I’ve been forced to realize that most of the BernieBros and Steinmenschen were gay men lacking a sense of humor. And perspective. And balls.

        • Fair enough, but there’s so many extremist dipshits out there that would say that without sarcasm that some people have given up trying to tell which is which.

    Hypocritical howls from the BernieBros and the Faux News idiots in 3..2..1….
    While Hillary was too far to the right for my taste on most things, this is precisely why I supported her. Look at all the horrible things the rethugs are doing to gays, transgender people and ask yourself what you plan to do in November.

    • I have already met one of the Democrats running against my Teavangelical Congressman. There is a large university in this district, and a few smaller ones. If he can get people registered and to the polls he has a chance. I will knock on doors the entire fall if I haven’t moved away.

      • I’ve talked to some of my neighbors about voting against Cruz. It’s a long shot, but man, I’d love to see his ass kicked out of D.C.

        • I’ve been thinking about voting in the GOP primary. I’ll wait and see if there’s any need for me to vote in any contested races in the Democratic Primary first, but if not I will vote for anyone running against Cruz or Abbott (even if they are “worse”…as if that were possible) or against my Teavangelical idiot Congressman. My state senator is not that bad as Republicans go (so he will probably be facing a primary challenge from the right). I will definitely vote for Democrats in November but sometimes the primary is the only chance to cast a vote that matters. Also, it looks like Democrats are actually going to run candidates this year. That’s a big change since most of the time they don’t run anyone at all in most races here and if they do you can’t even find anything about them using a google search. (Seriously, one didn’t even have a facebook page much less a website!)

    Aren’t people bothered by the NY Times report about Hillary’s decision to keep on someone accused of sexual harassment? Even one of her top advisors suggested he be removed. Either we take the issue of protecting women in the workforce seriously or we don’t. There shouldn’t be a double standard for people.

People like you, uncritical of the Democratic Party, are the ones who will continue to lead our party to the historic losses we have suffered over the past 8 years. Please wake up and take a hard look at what the Democratic Party is doing wrong and how we can fix it, instead of name calling.

        • paddis

          Well she did tweet an ‘apology’ of sorts:

          A story appeared today about something that happened in 2008. I was dismayed when it occurred, but was heartened the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) 27 janvier 2018

          • downtownla

            These are not the words of a so-called leader, especially one who touts her support for other women. If you wanna hear a strong voice on this issue, listen to Aly Reisman, the courageous gymnast, hear the power and conviction in her voice. If you want to parse the problem with Hillary’s messaging and why it does not engender confidence 1.) she says 2008 as if it happened a long time ago.Saying it happened a long time ago, doesn’t diminish the charges 2.) being dismayed is not the same as being pissed 3.) being heartened is not taking action 4.) being heard is so passive 5.) from all accounts, the guy was not fired, instead she was transferred. Americans are looking for leaders who have a clear, strong voice on issues. If Democrats want to win again, we need to start using stronger language so Americans pay attention to us. More importantly, we need to take strong actions. Imagine if Hillary had actually fired the guy. She could have tweeted: We instantly fired his ass. Now that would be a message that Americans can get behind. Maybe this is why Hillary actually lost the female vote.

  • JWC

    At least she can own it and the GOP can go all apoplectic

    Clinton kept a top adviser on her 2008 campaign after he was accused by a campaign staffer of sexual harassment.

    No problemo, obviously the pig helped her more than a evil Bernie Sanders supporter would have in a state she couldn’t be bothered to visit. As usual, good call, Hillary.
