Deserts roast blasphemers and sodomites in the inner ring.
Since Democrats wrote G-d out of the Constitution and gays into it, Albright underestimates the risk that all Democratic women will be parched and sunburned whether they vote for an admitted atheist (Sanders) or a faux Christian (Hillary).
In the Eighth Circle, the fraudulent are marched through human waste, buried in rock, boiled in oil, cloaked in lead, beheaded, snake-bitten and diseased as their sins merit.
Among these are panderers. Many politicians promise anything to anyone to get elected. But uber-liberal Hillary promises to balance the budget, reform Wall Street, destroy ISIS, heal racial divisions and plant a unicorn in every garden. Pandering convicts the promisor, not the promisee. Hillary’s at risk; women voters are not.
Seducers, who abandon victims after making false promises, and flatterers, who entice and beguile with lies, are condemned to the Eighth Circle as well.
The bankrupt Democratic platform is pure seduction and flattery. Hillary and Sanders are imperiled. But, again, the women duped into voting for them are not.
Simoniacs—dealers in pardons or privileges—also inhabit the Eighth Circle.
Every president makes appointments. But Hillary’s threat to nominate the lawless Barack Obama to the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat should earn her a slot here, as should Obama’s pardoning her for felonious mishandling of highly classified information to cover up Benghazi. Taking bribes from horrible foreign regimes is simony, too.
The corrupt suffer here as well.
Hillary’s estrangement from truth is lifelong and irremediable. Books about the Clintons’ devious dishonesty fill libraries. Hillary’s statements about Benghazi and her emails are just her most recent lies.
Thieves are punished here, too. Hillary’s $100,000 profit on a $1,000 investment in cattle futures, an inside trade facilitated by a political crony, earns her their company.
Fraudulent counselors and perjurers are also sentenced to the Eighth Circle.
Hillary’s supervisor said he fired her from her job as staff attorney to the Watergate Committee for both sins—lying, and urging others to do so, to ensure President Nixon’s impeachment.
Schismatics—needless dividers of others—abide in the Eighth Circle.
Without race baiters, class warfare agents and gender supremacists, the Democratic Party has no constituencies and no reason to be. In campaigning and governing, Hillary divides. Again, her sin, not the voters’.
In the Ninth Circle, betrayers of family, community, and country are entombed in ice for the most abominable sin—treachery.
Hillary’s entire career is a betrayal—of truth, of law, of colleagues, of women her husband attacked, of the Benghazi dead and of the country she weakened as Secretary of State and would drag deeper still into debt, division and danger as president.
Finally, at Hell’s core, Satan, betrayer of G-d, is alone, powerless, ignorant, and hate-filled. He, not Bill, is Hillary’s true soulmate. This, not the White House, is her special place.
Partisanship, gender, and age blind Albright’s judgment. And Hell, and special places therein, may not exist. But they might.
What difference does it make? This: It is obscene to fault women who don’t vote for Hillary, and outrageous for Albright to condemn them there for thinking and exercising freedom of choice—which, after all, is what feminism is supposed to be about.
