Hillary Clinton is Ashley Madison…
Posted August 20, 2015on:
A Mobius Strip is a surface with one continuous side formed by joining the ends of a rectangular strip after twisting one end through 180°. There is no beginning or no end to a Mobius Strip. It is seamless. It is an eternal loop.
The media uses certain words to describe Hillary. Here is a list put together by Men for Hillary juxtaposed with words used to describe men:
- A male candidate is smart, while Hillary is “calculating, scheming, crafty, manipulative.”
- A male candidate values privacy, while Hillary is “secretive, suspicious, paranoid, uncommunicative.”
- A male candidate takes strong positions, while Hillary is “polarizing, divisive, alienating.”
- A male candidate deserves the benefit of the doubt, while Hillary is “untrustworthy, corrupt, deceitful, dishonest, unethical.”
- A male candidate is an achiever while Hillary is “over-ambitious, will do or say anything to win.”
- A male candidate is diplomatic while Hillary is “inauthentic, disingenuous, fake, unlikable, insincere.”
Words like these are repeatedly used in articles or like Maureen Dowd, in opinion pieces by those who have long-held grudges. For twenty-five years this has been normal in coverage of Hillary.
This is how it climbs onto the Mobius Strip. After incessantly using words like calculating, scheming, crafty, manipulative, etc. – then the media outlets poll voter attitudes. In a self-fulfilling prophesy, the question is phrased this way: I’m going to read you a list of words, please tell me whether or not you believe these words describe Hillary Clinton? Of course, voters will describe Hillary according to the words they have repeatedly heard the media use.
Next, the media follows up with, “Why does the electorate see Hillary by these characteristic words?”
And then there’s the consummate hat trick to bring this Mobius Strip back to its start: The media then begins asking questions about why they are asking the questions – questions about questions. It goes something like this: Many people are asking the question why people are questioning Hillary’s honesty. A perfect self-sustaining Mobius Strip loop.
A great example was Tuesday’s Las Vegas press conference. Ed Henry, of Fox Screws (where else), interrupted Hillary repeatedly. He was antagonistic and petulant.
Then, of course, there was an analysis of that Las Vegas press conference which proves the underlying thesis of this post. Here are five criticisms of Hillary contained in that Washington Post analysis:
- She sounds like a lawyer. News flash, she is a lawyer.
- She casts the whole thing as normal and every day. There are people who are paid to come to work each day in the federal government and question the security classification of communication. It is normal. It happens every single day.
- She’s dismissive. It isn’t very authentic to pour out empathetic vibes to someone who is deserving of dismissiveness like Ed Henry, especially if that person is on a mission from Roger Ailes to take Hillary down in a single presser. The author of the article actually says, “Hillary has seen this type of thing a billion times before.” Now honestly, how could she be anything but dismissive of something she has seen a billion times before?
- She’s sarcastic. The author says, “People like sarcasm in their politicians.” I guess Hillary is the exception to the author’s own rule.
- She’s wrong. This criticism has to do with who is asking the questions about the e-mail issue and Hillary said, “Nobody talks to me about it other than you guys.” The reporter then concludes he doesn’t know who talks to Hillary about what on every second of every day, but that doesn’t stop him from declaring someone must be talking to Hillary about the issue. In other words, the author asserts, “I don’t know who talks to Hillary or what they talk about, but that doesn’t stop me from concluding she’s being talked to about the e-mails.”
So what is the title of this post about? Given the constant media mash-up, I figure it goes something like this:
Hillary’s e-mail equals technology. Hillary is deceitful and therefore, she is covering up something and must be cheating. The Ashley Madison issue is about technology and covering up cheating. In the Mobius Strip that is the media, ergo, Hillary Clinton is Ashley Madison – it’s all about cheating through technology and the woman who enables it. I expect the headline soon.
Take this conversation in any direction you might like.
