Can you feel the pulse-pounding sense of excitement that’s sweeping the nation in the wake of the sudden rise to media prominence of superwoke everywoman Chelsea Clinton?
I sure can, but then I’m a conservative Republican. I totally support the Democrats making Chelsea the face of their party.
Please, please, please make her the face of your party.
Let’s be clear – Chelsea is not an embodiment of malignant evil, as is her harpy mother. I am aware of acts of great kindness she has personally performed; she does not appear to be a morally bankrupt monster like her parents. Nor do I blame her for supporting her mother or Bill. But Chelsea is a doctrinaire limo liberal who is utterly clueless about her privilege – she is one of the rare cases where the use of that term is neither teeth-gratingly stupid or a lie designed to seize unearned moral authority. And she buys into the moral vacuum that is progressivism’s received wisdom – from going all-in on the global warming scam to seeing all the SJW –isms and –phobias behind every opponents’ views to embracing the Planned Parenthood baby-killing racket. She should be left to live her life in peace without harassment, but so should we – which means Chelsea must never hold anything like a position of power.
Still, you can see the push to make her a thing; someone’s clearly hired a PR professional to inflate this obnoxious trial balloon. She gets a non-story story in The Hill nearly every day, like “Chelsea Clinton Fuels Speculation of Political Run” (Don’t follow the link – the site has one of those stupid auto-plays; if Chelsea’s platform consisted solely of ritually disemboweling anyone putting an auto-play ad on a website I’d write her a check today).
And she’s now tweeting all sorts of mind-numbing clichés, like “Inspired by these kids & their fierce determination to combat #climatechange. #ItsYourWorld” and “Clearly the Congressman does not view all our children as, well, all our children. Particularly ironic & painful on Purim.” Evidently, we need leaders in the future who don’t understand the meaning of the words “our” or “ironic.”
When this pampered princess, whose history of wearing a uniform consists solely of attending a tony private school so she wouldn’t have to associate with the poor minority kids in the D.C. public schools, tweeted “National service should NOT be a partisan issue. Ending programs that empower young people to positively impact communities is simply wrong,” she forgot to add the hashtag #Hypocrisy.
Still, to some Democrats – primarily those named “Clinton” – the idea of anointing Chelsea heir to the Oval Office has a certain kind of logic. Well, a certain kind of Chardonnay-swilling, Volvo-driving liberal logic.
First, Chelsea’s an achiever. She had two kids, which nobody else has ever done. After a world-wide search and intense competition with hundreds of other candidates, she was named “vice chair at the Clinton Foundation, where she works several times a week.”…
