Hillary Clinton Claims Being a Capitalist Caused Her to Lose Election: Not an Article From ‘The Onion’
Hillary Clinton is claiming that she lost the 2016 election because she was too much of a capitalist and there are too many Democrats that are socialists. Hillary beat Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for the party’s nomination, so that does not seem to be true.
Hillary is actually a socialist herself. At best, she’s a crony, corrupt capitalist. It adds yet another excuse to her list of reasons why President Trump stomped her in the presidential election. And she just can’t let go of it or get over it. Not ever.

In an interview with Time Inc. Brands executive Alan Murray, she stated that her economic policies were “probably” a hard sell for many Democratic primary voters. “You may be the only presidential candidate since World War II that actually had to stand up and say I am a capitalist,” Murray asked, “and you did, uh, did it hurt you?” “It’s hard to know, but I mean if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I’m asked ‘Are you a capitalist?’ and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.’ You know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist!’ ” Clinton said. Hillary is a criminal through and through, so that is laughable.
During the first Democratic debate in 2015, Sanders refused to identify himself as a capitalist. “Do I consider myself part of the casino capitalist process by which so few have so much and so many have so little?” he asked. “By which Wall Street greed and recklessness wrecked this economy? No I don’t.”
The Daily Beast reported that Republicans quickly seized on the comments, posting them on multiple social media channels. And who can blame them? That’s the most ridiculous excuse she’s given yet and there have been some doozies. Her interviewer at the Shared Values Leadership Summit quipped Clinton might have been the first presidential candidate since World War II who had to stand up and announce she was a capitalist. But he forgot to mention it was a bald faced lie.
At the Shared Value Leadership Summit in New York, Hillary said that “the reputation of capitalism is pretty much in tatters for young people.” That’s because of the left incessantly tearing capitalism apart. But I’m not sure that statement is true. Many young people want to be entrepreneurs and want to go into business for themselves. This is despite the Democrats doing their very best to push a slave mentality out there.
Capitalism, done Obama’s way, did crush many young people economically and it put them in horrendous debt. But since Trump has been in office, things have changed significantly and capitalism is beginning to work the way it should once again. There’s been a lot of damage, but it’s righting itself.
“I support hard work, risk-taking, and entrepreneurial energy,” she added, saying the current system is out of balance, with too much power tipping “toward biggest companies with most influence.” Clinton said that powerful companies in America are “disrupting our democracy” by worsening income inequality, and that one step toward fixing the problem would be voting Republicans out of office in 2018. No, that would put the socialists in full control and probably finish off our economy. “That some CEOs are paid 200 times more than their median workers is “not OK,”” she said, “because the system of capitalism depends on trust, which “holds the democratic market economy and the political system together” and pay disparities erode that trust.” Spoken like a true Marxist.
Incomes are stabilizing and are in fact increasing. Companies are competing again and aren’t strangled by horrendous regulations and taxes. Things are much better under Trump. Employment is up, taxes are down and the economy is booming. Being a Keynesian socialist, Hillary just doesn’t get that.
Hillary has laid blame on numerous factors for her eventual general election defeat at the hands of President Trump, Sanders and his diehard supporters among them. Sanders ripped Clinton as beholden to Wall Street interests during the primary and she wrote that his attacks did “lasting damage” to her. Clinton also criticized Sanders as unrealistic in his policies and for essentially offering voters a bill of goods. She also rigged the election against Sanders, laundered campaign money and arrogantly dismissed her voting base. She lost because she’s a vile human being and a criminal.
When Sanders was asked in October 2015 if he was capitalist, he had a straight forward reply. “No,” Sanders said. “I’m a Democratic socialist. But what I mean is I’ve been elected as an independent throughout my political career,” he added. “I’m running now in the Democratic nomination process.” At least that’s honest and that’s saying something coming from an avowed socialist.
