WASHINGTON, May 6, 2017 — Last Tuesday, Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that she was “back to being an activist citizen, and part of the resistance.”
The term “resistance” is designed to conjure in the listener’s mind the brave French men and women who waged a clandestine war against their Nazi occupiers.
But the reference is also meant to equate anti-Trump demonstrators, like those intrepid souls that don headgear from the “Pussyhat Project,” with Parisian partisans that detonated bridges and destroyed rail lines.
The term “resistance” also brings to mind the German dictator whose goose-stepping goons did the occupying and link him with the reality-TV star who bested a former First Lady, U.S. Senator, Secretary of State and Democratic candidate for the nation’s top office.
All silliness aside, America’s nouveau-resisters have it easy. Hitler ordered the execution of fifty French resisters for every German soldier killed.
Anti-Trump resisters have nothing to fear but being on the receiving end, like Rosie O’Donnell and “Crooked” Hillary, of Trump’s cutting tweets.
And when it comes to “resistance” leaders, the name that should come to mind is Jean Moulin. He’s the man who, under orders from French Gen. Charles de Gaulle, left the comfort of London, infiltrated into Nazi-occupied France and organized its disparate guerilla groups into a cohesive fighting force, thus minimizing the influence of communist fighters loyal to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.
Less than a year before the 1944 Allied invasion at Normandy, Moulin was captured and tortured by German soldiers under the command of SS Lieutenant Nikolaus “Klaus’ Barbie, the “Butcher of Lyon.”
Barbie would bring the battered and unconscious body of Moulin into his office as an example of what lay in store for freshly captured French Resistance fighters.
Laure Moulin would later write of his brother Jean, “Jeered at, savagely beaten, his head bleeding, his internal organs ruptured, he attained the limits of human suffering without betraying a single secret, he who knew everything.”
It’s hard for rational Americans to believe “resistance” leader Hillary will ever see a button on her Nina McLemore designer pant suits popped during a grilling by interrogators from the occupying Trump regime.
But Mrs. Clinton’s wild claims show she clearly knows her Democratic Party audience.
Back in 2013, a study conducted under lead researcher Darren Schreiber of the University of California at San Diego (HERE) performed MRI scans on subjects “to successfully infer the political views of these users by identifying functional differences in the brains of respective Democrats and Republicans.”
The results are as follows:
“Republicans more strongly activate their right amygdala, associated with orienting attention to external cues. Democrats have higher activity in their left posterior insula, associated with the perception of internal physiological states.”
In other words, Republicans tend to base their worldview on observable, external reality. Democrats base it on passionate emotions generated by over-active imaginations.
That, of course, may explain the differences between the two camps regarding such things as “climate change.”
The hysteria expressed by climate changers during recent world-wide demonstrations shows the ferocity inspired by the fantasy films playing in their heads.
And despite claims of universal “scientific consensus” concerning the climate calamities of their imaginings, a majority of Americans remain unconvinced or outright disdainful of their fantastical predictions.
Rationalists, as the study above found, are prisoners of their lucid “right amygdala,” while the heads of the fanciful and irrational are firmly planted up their “posterior… insula.”
Hillary Clinton, therefore, is as real a “resistance” leader as Princess Leia in “Star Wars,” which was a far more compelling and entertaining fantasy film than the silly one playing in Hillary’s head.
