USA: Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has warned leftists that they should drop transgenderism as a core policy issue if they want to win future elections.
Clinton made the comments during an interview with the Financial Times when she was asked, “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?”
The former Secretary of State said that such issues were serving as a distraction to the priority of being successful at the ballot box.
“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.
Clinton’s remarks echo previous comments made last year on the same issue.
“I think that it is a time for some careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep-blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat, or so-called progressive Democrat, is going to win,” Clinton said at the time. “I understand why people want to argue for their priorities. That’s what they believe they were elected to do.”
Democratic strategist James Carville also blamed Republican Glenn Youngkin’s victory last year of the left’s obsession with identity politics.
“What went wrong is just stupid wokeness,” said Carville.
“It’s just really — has a suppressive effect all across the country on Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a ‘woke’ detox center or something,” he added.
Former President Barack Obama sent a similar warning back in 2019 when her asserted that “wokeness” was not a successful form of activism.
“This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly,” said Obama.
Last year, Obama also said that cancel culture had gone too far.
“We don’t expect everybody to politically correct all the time,” he said.
