People are talking about Hillary’s recent “Mississippi Comments.”

Jonathan Martin at Politico wonders why none of the GOP nominees are making any statements about it: “Would seem like the perfect opportunity to score some points about her being a liberal elitist looking down her nose at a Southern state, right?”

It truly would be a good opportunity for Mitt Romney or the others to take Hillary to task on being a snob, but what everyone seems to be missing is the word “Communitarianism.”


"I think Iowa poses a special burden, or a special obstacle to me because when you look at the numbers, how can Iowa be ranked with Mississippi? That's not what I see. That's not the quality. That's not the communitarianism, that's not the openness I see in Iowa."

I had never heard this word before, so looked it up.

Wikipedia’s first paragraph describing it says: “Communitarianism as a group of related but distinct philosophies began in the late 20th century, opposing individualism while advocating phenomena such as civil society. Not necessarily hostile to social liberalism or even social democracy, communitarianism emphasizes the interest of communities and societies over those of the individual."

Sounds like Communitarianism is Hillary's new word for Communism.

This woman is scary.

And the fact that she made this statement and so easily used this word "Communitarianism" and everyone is caught up in her snobbiness and have totally (as far as I can see) missed the real heart of her message is very troubling to me.

Any thoughts on this? Am I making a mountain out of a molehill?

P.S. Does anyone think this would be the makings of a good 'Hillary Attack Ad" ad for Mitt?

The scary thing is that builders of communism in the Soviet Union were themselves the most selfish individuals. So whenever someone advocates commune society over individual society, i see a desire to rule the masses.

In this scheme, the few elect benefit at the expense of the mass which leads to the inhibition of individual industry and the rise of good-enough attitude. I am will not mention the level of corruption, cronysm, extortion, and other vices that come with a commune oriented society. I know I've lived most of life in the former USSR.

Krim, thank you so much for your helpful, informative and sobering comment.

We must do all we can to preserve the freedom we have in America.

I believe that Hillary Clinton and the very left Liberal Democrats in our country are working day and night to create the very situation you described in your comment.

Thanks again, Krim!

When I first read Hillary's comments, they seemed disjointed and I didn't understand what she was trying to say.

But as I read Hillary's comments over again, I saw that she's was trying to reach for the right words to describe what is, to her, the difference between Mississippi and Iowa.

Notice she says "That's not the quality. That's not the communitarianism, that's not the openness I see in Iowa."


These three words are synonyms to her.

It really sheds light on her true beliefs. You could easily substitute -
quality/communism/openness - for what she said.

She rarely expresses her true beliefs, for if she did, most people would be horrified. But they do slip out -- sometimes blatantly and sometimes not so blatantly.

She does seem to be a true believer -- in the Revolution.
