Bill Clinton says Republicans ‘scare’ voters: ‘They make critical race theory sound worse than smallpox’

Former President Bill Clinton took some time out from his social life, or whatever else he’s into these days, to opine like an elder statesman of the Democrat Party.

In so doing, however, he spewed some misleading talking points about scary Republicans and engaged in projection for which liberals have become well known.

During an interview on CNN, Clinton claimed that the Democrats could retain control of both houses of Congress in the November elections, in a reversal of an historical trend, if not current polling, if they can overcome the aforementioned GOP’s nightmarish tactics with some smooth talking.

His comments are ironic in that no one does divisiveness better than the Dems.

Clinton also seemed still perplexed by the victory of parents-first Republican Glenn Youngkin in the 2021 Virginia gubernatorial election.

In what could be a form of misdirection, as it were, he told the host of “Fareed Zakaria GPS” on the network hardly anyone watches, “We could hold both these houses, but we have to say the right things. And we have to note the Republicans always close well. Why? Because they find some new way to scare the living daylights out of swing voters about something.

“That’s what they did in 2021, where they made critical race theory sound worse than smallpox. And it wasn’t being taught in any public schools in America. But they didn’t care. They just scare people,” Clinton, 76, smugly said in the video clip embedded above.

To borrow a phrase from a recent Karol Markowicz article in the Washington Examiner headlined  “How Democrats sabotaged schoolchildren,” which may apply here to Clinton’s posturing: “The arsonists want to be remembered as the firefighters.”

Bill Clinton seemed to accept Zakaria’s initial premise that Democrats could prevail because of abortion rights and the passage of “a very important bills,” which perhaps is a reference, for one thing, of Joe Biden’s fundamentally misnamed Inflation Reduction Act (which some skeptics have renamed as the Inflation Corruption Act) that cleared Congress on a straight party-line vote.

Clinton is obviously wrong, moreover, in denying how leftists have unfortunately embedded CRT in education curriculum throughout the country, as well as in corporate America and government training.

Apparently reflecting on his own success, the back-patting ex-POTUS properly underscored the importance of independent voters in an election cycle, however.

“At the end, the break point in American politics is not much different than it was in the 90s. That is, you still have to get those people. It’s just that there’s so many fewer, because as the parties have gone more ideological and clear, and somehow psychically intolerant, they pull…more and more people toward the extremes. But there’s still some people hanging on there who are really trying to think, and trying to understand what’s going on. So I think that’s very important.”

In another moment of liberal echo chambering , Zakaria and Clinton agreed that Tony Blair, the ex-U.K. globalist prime minister from the left-wing Labor Party who championed the Iraq War, was a good leader (an assessment that may not be currently shared by voters in Britain).

“You and he understood that you had to appeal to people on cultural issues to reassure them that you weren’t a crazy-eyed radical. And then they would be open to listening to your economic policies, which were gonna help them,” the TV host told Clinton.
