Hillary Clinton still thinks there is a “vast right-wing” conspiracy out to get her.
Wednesday during CNN’s Democratic town hall, Clinton said “at this point it’s probably not correct to say it’s a conspiracy because it’s out in the open.”
Moderator Anderson Cooper asked Clinton, “Let me just quickly follow up. You mentioned attacks in the early 90s. Do you still believe there’s a vast right-wing conspiracy?
Clinton responded, “Don’t you?” Cooper shot back, “I’m asking you.
The former first lady insisted, “Yeah. It’s gotten even better funded. You know, they brought in some new multi-billionaires to pump the money in. Look, these guys play for keeps. They want to control our country. Senator Sanders and I agree on that completely. They want to rig the economy so they continue to get richer and richer, they could care less about income inequality. They solve their consciences by giving big money to philanthropy, you know getting big pictures of them standing in front of whatever charity they donated to but make no mistake, they want to destroy unions, they want to go after any economic interests that they don’t believe they can control.”
“They want to destroy our balance of power,” Clinton claimed. “They want to go after our political system and fill it with people who will do their bidding. I said today in Dover, you know, I don’t think all of the Republican candidates are so ill informed about climate change that they say they don’t know because they’re not scientists. They’re just doing the bidding of the Koch brothers. They’re told don’t you dare say climate change is real because we’re in the fossil fuel business.”
“So this is exactly what they are up top. And, yes, it is probably — look, at this point it’s probably not correct to say it’s a conspiracy because it’s out in the open. You know, there is no doubt about what they’re doing and who the players are and what they’re trying to achieve and you know they’re shopping among the Republicans candidates to figure out who among them will most likely do their bidding. So just know what we’re up against because it’s real and we’re going to beat it. But it’s going to take everybody working together,” Clinton said.
