On Monday, the double-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wrote a comment for the Washington Post entitled “Trump should be charged. But that alone will not remove white supremacy in America. “In the play, Clinton wrote that Wednesday’s” attack on the Capitol “was a function of” Donald Trump-fueled complaints from the white supremacists. “
Clinton blows up Trump in devastating op-ed
Clinton nonsensically claimed that “white” was Trump’s top priority and falsely claimed that he praised neo-Nazis as “very good people” after the 2017 riots in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“Trump ran for president for a vision of America in which white is valued at the expense of everything else,” wrote Clinton. “At the White House, he gave white supremacists, members of the far right and conspiracy theorists their most powerful platforms yet, and even claimed that there were ‘very good people’ in the torch-wielding militia who gathered in Charlottesville in 2017.”
Clinton further predicted that the Capitol insurrection, which she viewed as an “insurrection,” would result in “even greater tragedy” if digital censorship is not stepped up to target “conspiracy theories” signed by supporters of President Donald Trump fight .

Claiming that our country is plagued by a group of citizens who value “white” more than “democracy”, she cited a book praised by Oprah Winfrey, who said the US was built on a racist “caste system”:
In Isabel Wilkerson’s new book, Caste, she quotes a question from historian Taylor Branch: “If people had a choice between democracy and whiteness, how many would choose whiteness?” Wednesday reminded us of an ugly truth: there are some Americans, more than many will admit, who would choose white.
It’s sobering that many people weren’t surprised by what happened last week, especially people of color, for whom a violent mob waving Confederate flags and hanging nooses is a familiar sight in American history. Consider what we saw last June when Black Lives Matter protesters who were demonstrating peacefully in Lafayette Square were met with federal officials and tear gas. If the first step towards healing and oneness is honesty, it begins with realizing that this is actually part of who we are.
Clinton discusses Capitol riots
Clinton then claimed that the Capitol riots were acts of “domestic terrorism” while calling for increased political censorship on the Internet to stop “violent speeches” and “conspiracy theories”:
“Removing Trump from office is important and I believe he should be tried,” she said. “Members of Congress who have joined it to undermine our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately. But that alone will not remove white supremacy and extremism from America. “

“There are changes that elected leaders should pursue immediately, including advocating new state and federal criminal laws that hold white supremacists accountable and tracking the activities of extremists like those who violated the Capitol,” she added .
“Twitter and other companies made the right decision to stop Trump from using their platforms, but they need to do more to stop the spread of violent speech and conspiracy theories,” argued Clinton.
Clinton concluded her statement by claiming that “real patriotism” requires implementation of her recommendations.
