Mr Ralph Nader on Ms Clinton


For John, BLUFI would venture to say that Mr Ralph Nader is straying to the sexism side here.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Writing, again for PJ Media, via a Drudge Headline, we have Mr Ralph Nader's take on Ms Hillary CLinton, "Hillary Tried to ‘Overcompensate’ for Gender with ‘Shocking’ Militarism".  The author of the piece, which includes video, is Mr Nicholas Ballasy.  The summarizing subhead is a quote from Mr Nader:  “I think Hillary is not the Hillary of when she was 30 years old. She made peace with the power structure."

Here is the lede:

Former Green Party and independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader labeled 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a “deep corporatist and a deep militarist” who has made peace with the nation’s power structure.

“I think Hillary is not the Hillary of when she was 30 years old. She made peace with the power structure and she is a deep corporatist and a deep militarist.  One can almost forgive the corporatism.  She moved to New York with Bill because that’s where the power is and Wall Street but her militarism is absolutely shocking,” he said during a discussion about his new book, Return to Sender, which focuses on unanswered letters Nader wrote to U.S. presidents about an array of issues.

Nader cited the war in Libya during President Obama’s first term to support his position on Clinton.

So, perhaps when Secretary of State Clinton said, "What difference, at this point, does it make," she wasn't just talking about the attack on the compound in Benghazi.
