It’s no secret that the Clintons will ally themselves with whoever is of most benefit to them, regardless of what crimes those people may have committed. Sex offenders, corrupt world leaders — it doesn’t matter, as long as they can help the Clintons get a little more money and power. Liberal celebrities are especially good targets, because it gives the celebrities political credibility, and the politician a way to connect with young voters.
But shouldn’t politicians maybe be a little careful about which celebrities they choose to spend time with? If you’re Bill and Hillary Clinton then the answer is no. It’s all about who can help them.
Bill Clinton stopped by Budweiser’s “Made in America” tour in Philadelphia this weekend, and he was caught hanging out with Beyonce and Jay-Z. Other VIPs at the festival included Chance the Rapper and Carmelo Anthony, of the New York Knicks.
Now, there’s no questioning that Beyonce and Jay-Z are major stars. But they’re also major cop-hating agitators. Beyonce caused nationwide outrage with her performance of the song “Formation” at the Super Bowl, where she and her dancers dressed like Black Panthers. The music video followed that performance, with Beyonce posed on top of a sinking New Orleans Police Department squad car. And just this past weekend, she put on another anti-police performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
So given that, shouldn’t Bill and Hillary maybe stay away from these two? After all, they don’t want to alienate a large portion of potential voters, right? And Beyonce’s anti-police stunts have certainly made people angry — so many, in fact, that police departments around the country have refused to provide security for her concerts.
But who are we kidding? The Clintons don’t care about everyday Americans. They certainly don’t care about cops. They know who they need to appeal to, and it’s liberal Democrats. Black Lives Matter is a subset of the Democratic Party, so to speak, and so it’s better for her to suck up to them than to take a principled stand and say that anti-police hatred isn’t acceptable.
This is Bill and Hillary we’re talking about, though. They don’t have principles. They wouldn’t recognize morals if they smacked them in the face. They’re corrupt to the core, and that’s all there is to it. So if someone like Beyonce can help her win, then that’s all that matters… even if it means promoting an anti-police activist.
