Hillary Clinton warns Democrats’ obsession with transgender issues could cost them 2024 election

Hillary Clinton warned that pushing Democrats to focus on transgender issues and spend their time condemning JK Rowling could cost them the 2024 election — and cost American democracy itself.

In an interview with the Financial timesFormer secretary of state and presidential candidate agreed with reporter Edward Luce that Democrats are sabotaging themselves by focusing on the wrong things.

“Democrats seem to be doing everything they can to lose elections by elevating activist causes, especially the transgender debate, which are only relevant to a small minority,” Luce said. “What’s the point of portraying JK Rowling as a fascist? †

The former first lady and 2016 presidential candidate did not dispute Luce’s claim, replying: “We are about to lose our democracy, and everything that everyone cares about is disappearing out the window.

“Look, the most important thing is to win the next election. The alternative is so frightening that what doesn’t help you win shouldn’t be a priority.’

Hillary’s comments came just days after President Biden signed an executive order to provide “gender confirmation care” that could include hormone therapy and surgery while accusing Republican lawmakers of “bullying” LGBTQ+ children.

JK Rowling has become a lightning rod for supporters of the toughest pro-trans policies after saying that some spaces, such as domestic violence shelters, should remain open only to non-trans women for security reasons.

Clinton spoke as Democrat progressive star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez persisted in gender-neutral terms for women, including “menstruating people” and “pregnant people.”

The terms are intended to include people who are transgender and non-binary. But many women — including those on the left — say they feel modern terminology is erasing them, after centuries of fighting for equal rights.

Some gays and lesbians have also urged caution against the treatment of children who claim to be transgender, after some research found that many youths who expressed such feelings grew up to be gay men or women who were satisfied in their bodies.

“Look, I’m all for a vigorous debate. I think it’s good, and it gives people a chance to be a part of the process,” Clinton told MSNBC in December, expressing fears about the Democrats’ medium-term prospects in 2022, “but in the end it means nothing if we don’t do that’ We don’t have a Congress that gets things done, and we don’t have a White House that we can count on to be healthy and sober, stable and productive.’

Clinton’s comments in the Financial Times came just two days before the debate over transgender women participating in women’s sports — which circled UPenn swimmer Lia Thomas — came to a head.

On Sunday, the International Swimming Sports Federation changed its policy to state that transgender women are only allowed to compete in the organization’s women’s races if they have completed their transition by age 12.

Clinton also spoke of the possibility of Roe v. Wade being quashed, and the implications of what could follow.

“If you go down the rabbit hole of far-right intellectuals, you see that contraception, same-sex marriage — everything is at risk,” she said.

She then referred to Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid’s Tale, discussed what the Christian “endgame” is, and referred to how the future might mimic the novel and run the Hulu show.

“The level of insidious regulation to further oppress women is almost endless,” Clinton said. “Look at this and how could you not help but think Margaret Atwood was a prophet? Not only is she a brilliant writer, she was a prophet.’

Former President Bill told James Corden, host of CBS's The Late Late Show, on Wednesday night that he fears the United States

Hillary painted an equally bleak picture in an interview with the Financial Times in an interview published less than 48 hours later on Friday.

Bill and Hillary Clinton both suggested that American democracy is teetering on the brink of existence in a few separate interviews this week

Less than 48 hours before her interview with Hillary was published, former President Bill Clinton shared similar grim feelings in an interview with James Corden on CBS’s The Late Late Show on Wednesday night.

Corden asked Bill how he “stays so positive in what have been some very, very dark years,” without mentioning Donald Trump by name.

The Democrat admitted it was “impossible to be pessimistic about the future” as he watched his grandchildren grow up, but painted a bleak picture of America’s future — just hours after the Jan. 6 committee hearing’s third hearing.

“I actually think there’s a fair chance that we’ll lose our constitutional democracy completely for a few decades if we keep making — if we make bad decisions,” Clinton added.

‘I’m not naive about this. I’ve had a lot of fights. I’ve lost some, gained a lot. I am elated and heartbroken,” he continued.

“But I have never been more concerned about the structure of our democratic form of government,” he added.

The interviews with the Clintons followed the Yahoo News/YouGov poll released on Wednesday showing that 55% of democrats and 53% of Republicans share that belief in a stunning sign of pessimism about the country’s future.

In addition, the poll found that a majority of Republicans – 52% – say it is likely that “a civil war will break out in the United States in [their] life’, while half of independents – 50% – and a large number of Democrats – 46% – agree.

The poll, which surveyed 1,541 adults and was conducted from June 10 (the day of the first hearing of January 6) to June 13 (the day of the second hearing), also found that Americans have largely given up on each other.

Members of both parties chose negative phrases to describe the person on the other side of the political aisle.

Republicans, when asked to choose the phrase that best describes “most people on the other side of the political aisle from you,” a majority used “beyond reality” (30%), a “threat to America.” (25%), ‘immoral’ (8%) and a ‘threat to me personally’ (4%) to describe Democrats.

Very few chose ‘well-intentioned’ (4%) or ‘not so different from me’ (6%).

Democrats thought the same about Republicans, using phrases like “out of reality” (27%), a “threat to America” ​​(23%), “immoral” (7%) and a “threat to me personally” (4%). to describe them.

Very little used words like ‘well-meaning’ (7%) or ‘not so different from me’ (5%).
