Hillary's Aug 31st War Speech, American Chauvinism soars to new demagogic heights, Andrew Taylor Sept 7, 2016




American Chauvinism soars to new demagogic heights: Hillary's Aug 31st War Speech ...She criticises Trump the putative "fascist" of the season for being a wimp for saying politicians shouldn't boast that America is the exceptional country as it offends people in other countries... None of that namby-pamby shite for Hillary!
"Part of what makes America an exceptional nation is that we are also an indispensable nation," "In fact, we are THE indispensable nation. People all over the world look to us, and follow our lead," Clinton said.
Hillary said when she becomes president cyber attacks against US interests will be treated “like any other attack” – and that includes Military Action.
“As President, I will make it clear that the United States will treat cyber-attacks just like any other attack. We will be ready with serious political, economic, and military responses,”
- #Hillary #Clinton #speech at the American Legion's 98th Annual Convention in Cincinnati, Aug. 31, 2016.


Hillary's Further Remarks at Aug 31 American Legion event: 

"I want you to know, if I am fortunate enough to win this election. I will be a president for Democrats, Republicans, independents, for people who vote for me, for people who don’t, for all Americans. That is what I think we need. We need to unify our country and go forward into the future with confidence and optimism.
(APPLAUSE)
Today I want you to know a little bit about where I stand and how I see the world and America’s place in it. I spent four years as your Secretary of State, eight years before that as Senator from the great state of New York, six years on the Senate Armed Services Committee. If there’s one core belief that has guided and inspired me every step of the way, it is this. The United States is an exceptional nation. I believe we are still Lincoln’s last, best hope of Earth. We’re still Reagan’s shining city on a hill. We’re still Robert Kennedy’s great, unselfish, compassionate country.
And it’s not just that we have the greatest military or that our economy is larger than any on Earth. It’s also the strength of our values, the strength of the American people. Everyone who works harder, dreams bigger and never, ever stops trying to make our country and the world a better place. And part of what makes America an exceptional nation, is that we are also an indispensable nation.

In fact, we are THE indispensable nation. People all over the world look to us and follow our lead. My friends, we are so lucky to be Americans. It is an extraordinary blessing. It’s why so many people, from so many places, want to be Americans too. But it’s also a serious responsibility. The decisions we make and the actions we take, even the actions we don’t take, affect millions even billions of lives.
 You know that; you’ve seen it.
Now all of this may seem evident, especially to men and women who have worn the uniform. You may wonder how anyone could disagree.


But, in fact, my opponent in this race has said very clearly that he thinks American exceptionalism is insulting to the rest of the world. In fact, when Vladimir Putin, of all people, criticized American exceptionalism, my opponent agreed with him, saying, and I quote, “if you’re in Russia, you don’t want to hear that America is exceptional.” Well maybe you don’t want to hear it, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true."
