Leaked Audio of Hillary Clinton “Supposed” Bashing of Sanders Supporters (Audio)
Some may have noticed this blog/website doesn’t post a lot of articles pertaining to the U.S. presidential election. This is due to the fact there is so much drudged up BS that when it comes to reporting the truth that can prove extremely difficult so instead of adding to the mess the choice was made to not post much except on rare occasions.
Now here is a perfect example of how people can twist and manipulate things to suit their agenda or side, so this may be one of the very few times I post something to do with the elections.
I’m sure many have already heard about a “leaked/hacked” audio of Hillary Clinton supposedly “bashing” Bernie Sanders supporters.
Now in the spirit of remaining neutral I only posted this because I think in the sense of fairness this should be heard so that the ACTUAL words can be heard and processed first hand by the listener rather than the sensationalizing of headlines that seem to be everywhere about this “leaked audio” for sensationalism sake.
Again, not choosing sides at all, just reporting the facts, listen carefully for yourself and see if it matches what you’re reading on most websites. There is no way you can listen to the ACTUAL words and buy the things that are being printed for hit seeking headlines sake.
To be clear if there should be a blatant case like this where the other candidate is not being fairly reported ie. something like an audio leak or words he never used being voiced as coming from him I would do the same (I say blatant case because again, I don’t plan to report much on the elections due to the dirt flinging that is going on rather than the truth. It should be a fair and clean choice not one filled with made up garble to suit either sides agenda.

Here is the transcript and audio part 1 and part 2:
CLINTON: It is important to recognize what’s going on in this election. Everybody who’s ever been in an election that I’m aware of is quite bewildered because there is a strain of, on the one hand, the kind of populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach that we hear too much of from the Republican candidates. And on the other side, there’s just a deep desire to believe that we can have free college, free healthcare, that what we’ve done hasn’t gone far enough, and that we just need to, you know, go as far as, you know, Scandinavia, whatever that means, and half the people don’t know what that means, but it’s something that they deeply feel. So as a friend of mine said the other day, I am occupying from the center-left to the center-right. And I don’t have much company there. Because it is difficult when you’re running to be president, and you understand how hard the job is — I don’t want to overpromise. I don’t want to tell people things that I know we cannot do.
Clinton went on to explain why she felt so many Democratic voters were gravitating to Sanders.
CLINTON: Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future. I met with a group of young black millennials today and you know one of the young women said, “You know, none of us feel that we have the job that we should have gotten out of college. And we don’t believe the job market is going to give us much of a chance.” So that is a mindset that is really affecting their politics. And so if you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing. So I think we should all be really understanding of that and should try to do the best we can not to be, you know, a wet blanket on idealism. We want people to be idealistic. We want them to set big goals. But to take what we can achieve now and try to present them as bigger goals.
