In another sign to transgender activists that their increasingly unpopular cultural crusade has become a liability for their Democrat enablers, Hillary Clinton has suggested that the feelings of a minuscule but noisy percentage of the population shouldn’t take priority over the party’s political concerns.
The embittered sore loser of the 2016 presidential election sat down with the UK’s Financial Times for an interview that was published on Friday to discuss a wide range of issues. And while her insistence that she was not going to run in 2024, deferring to President Joe Biden initially got the most attention, her remarks throwing transgenders under the bus have set off a firestorm on Twitter.
In the FT interview which took place over a lunch of jumbo lump crab cake with salad at the Blue Duck Tavern in Washington D.C.’s Georgetown area, the former secretary of state was asked about whether the party’s focus on transgender issues was worth the political costs as backlash builds over groomers in classrooms and drag queens strutting their stuff in front of young children.
“My espresso has arrived. Clinton asks for more iced tea. I cannot allow the lunch to end without questioning the direction of her party,” wrote interviewer Edward Luce.
“I say that Democrats seem to be going out of their way to lose elections by elevating activist causes, notably the transgender debate, which are relevant only to a small minority. What sense does it make to depict JK Rowling as a fascist?” Luce wrote, referring to the author of the Harry Potter books who has been savaged by the trans movement. “To my surprise, Clinton shares the premise of my question.”
“We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy, and everything that everybody else cares about then goes out the window,” Clinton said.
“Look, the most important thing is to win the next election. The alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority,” she added, becoming the highest profile Democrat yet to suggest that the party’s championing of transgenderism has become untenable in today’s political environment.
Resistance Twitter exploded with raw fury over Clinton’s remarks and the idea that transgenders may no longer be viewed as very special people by the Democratic Party.
“If this were 1933 Germany, you and @HillaryClinton would dismiss the persecution of Jewish people as being politically inconvenient since it’d be ‘relevant only to a small minority,'” one user wrote, playing the Nazi card. “Also, JK Rowling *IS* a fascist and Republicans want to genocide trans people.”

Other leftists rage-tweeted against Clinton and the hated Rowling.
Vladimir Putin & Hillary Clinton have both defended JK Rowling.

Hillary Clinton defending JK Rowling and saying that protecting trans folk will cost the election
It's direct evidence that the elites and politicians will watch us die rather than lose clout.
Liberals always concede to fascism. Us trans folk are apparently the concession.

Every six months, Hillary Clinton emerges from her mansion to tell a major newspaper that the next election is too vital to care about civil rights

Every time JK Rowling trends I get a sick feeling in my stomach & today is no different. So Hillary Clinton has now come out saying #transrights don’t matter this election because it only affects a small minority of ppl? WTF? Trans rights are human rights & #translivesmatter

I’m glad Hillary lost, because Hillary and JK Rowling are fascists! Further, Hillary and JK Rowling exploited the transgender community for their own gains.

Absolutely obscene and out of touch for @HillaryClinton & @EdwardGLuce. The right wants to kill trans people. End their lives. Yes JK Rowling is a fascist, but guess what? So are you two fucking losers. Shame on @FT for allowing this to even leave an editing desk. pic.twitter.com/zdzIuyA7ET

It wasn't taken out of context and it's not lying.
Hillary Clinton defended anti trans fascist JK Rowling and agreed that since trans rights are only relevant to a small minority they aren't worth defending.
So please. Kindly fuck off calling us radicals while you defend a TERF

Mrs. Clinton also threw shade at Black Lives Matter and the “defund the police” movement that the tarnished organization has championed.
“You need accountable measures. But you also need policing. It doesn’t even pass the common-sense politics test not to believe that. Some positions are so extreme on both the right and the left that they retreat to their corners . . . Politics should be the art of addition, not subtraction,” she said in remarks that could throw an additional log on the bonfire of leftist Twitter rage.
