Since her election loss, Hillary Clinton has been appearing in the limelight to show her support for Trump resistance efforts and to complain about her loss. In May, she announced her intention to help fund various resistance groups, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Rush Limbaugh, on his Facebook page, revealed that she’s already started. “Hillary Clinton has just given $800,000 from her campaign fund to the Trump resistance movement, which is what’s funding all of these rent-a-thugs. It’s all a left-wing movement, and it’s all organized.”
Not content to accept the results of the election and support democracy, Clinton has established the Onward Together political action group. Onward Together is designed to fund various resistance groups to help combat President Trump’s actions in office.
In a tweet, she announced the group’s formation and its purpose: “We’re launching Onward Together to encourage people to get involved, organize, and even run for office.” The website for the organization even has the famous “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.” quote from Clinton as its slogan.
Sources close to Clinton say she’s been looking for something to do since the failed election, according to CNN. She’s announced she will no longer seek the presidency following her two unsuccessful attempts and has no desire to go back to working for The Clinton Foundation, which may be in part caused by the number of controversies and the scrutiny it has received since last year.
This organization is providing her with something to do and allows her to wield her political power and influence to help Democrats. Considering it will largely be focused on resisting Trump’s efforts, it’s no doubt also providing a way for her to get back at her political opponent.
According to Federal Election Commission documents, in May, Clinton funneled $800,000 into the Onward Together group using campaign money left over from Hillary for America.
In an email to supporters, Clinton said she feels the organization will be welcomed by Trump-haters, considering the existing resist Trump movements: “From the Women’s March to airports across the country where communities are welcoming immigrants and refugees to town hall meetings in every community, Americans are speaking out like never before. I believe more fiercely than ever that citizen engagement at every level is central to a strong and vibrant democracy.”
She stated that Onward Together will help fuel these efforts by providing funding and logistics. “In some cases, we’ll provide direct funding to these organizations,” Clinton said. “For others, we’ll amplify their work and do what we can to help them continue to grow their audiences and expand their reach.”
The town hall meetings she referenced help prove Limbaugh’s claim that the supposed organic and natural protests are in fact individuals organized and unleashed upon Trump supporters in town hall meetings.
According to a Washington Free Beacon article, two organizations are primarily behind this effort to direct Trump-haters to important town hall meetings: Town Hall Project and The Action Network. Clinton has confirmed her new organization would support these groups.
With Clinton forming the Onward Together organization, Democrats will have a more powerful tool to wield in their efforts to resist Trump. Additional protests, rioting, and chaotic town hall meetings will become the norm with Clinton now backing and focusing their efforts.
The hypocrisy of it all is simply amazing, considering Clinton and many Democrats condemned Trump for supposedly refusing to accept the results of the election should she have won, according to Fox News. They claimed his refusal to accept her legitimate win and insistence that the election was rigged against him would threaten democracy.
Yet here they are, organized in their efforts to delegitimize and resist Trump’s presidency. It seems democracy is only valued if it works in their favor.
