Yes, I am a strong Hillary partisan, and no I am not ashamed of it.

If you are an immigrant, a person of color, a foreigner in any sense in this country (even in the sense that you are born in Hawaii, but because of the color of your skin, a significant part of the country thinks you are from Kenya), this election feels like an existential threat. So yes, I am more likely to snap at people who I believe are not supporting her, whether here or IRL this election is a threat to me, and I am reacting to it as a threat.

There have several posts on DU wondering why people are not more gracious about attacks (which inevitably they think are constructive) on HRC, people under existential threat should not be expected to graciously deal with your hand wringing nonsense.

I support her, I want her to be president, i already think the media criticizes her way too much, and I don't want to deal with such nonsense on DU.

If the Clinton Foundation Closes, People Will Die


Due to the lack of adequate recognition of the breadth and success of the Clinton Foundation’s many HIV and AIDS initiatives, we at Gay Men’s Health Crisis, the world’s first and leading AIDS service organization, felt it was time to speak up.

GMHC is not a partisan or political organization. We have one singular mission — end the AIDS epidemic. To that end, GMHC has sought to raise public awareness of the epidemic’s continuing, harrowing impact and to press government officials to devote the resources needed to accomplish this goal.

We both condemned President Reagan’s failure to address the HIV crisis and praised President Bush’s expansion of federal HIV treatment programs; we have criticized President Clinton’s HIV and AIDS strategy while in office and applauded President Obama’s policy response to the epidemic. GMHC has a long history of speaking up when we have felt that our elected officials and public figures are not doing enough, and an equally long history of praising our leaders, nonprofits, and other organizations when they introduce initiatives or plans that bring us closer to finding a cure.

Thus it is crucial that we recognize the Clinton Foundation’s efforts toward eliminating HIV and AIDS around the world and acknowledge the dangers in discontinuing these initiatives.

Honestly, I detest every liberal and every person in the media who has demanded that the clinton's shut down the foundation.
