Posted on 06/27/2005 1:11:21 PM PDT by Mia T
Whereas Leni Riefenstahl symbolizes the naïve actress and director who is induced to deal with devils, Hillary Clinton is actor, director and--many would argue--devil, rolled into one willful, corrupt, vengeful, despotic, paranoic package.
And so we have today... here in America... in America!... Hillary Clinton and her media apparatchiks conducting a campaign of censorship-by-terror that is without precedent; without precedent even if we include in the calculus the despotic Clinton years.
The precipitating agent and object of that censorship: a revealing new biography, "The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It and How Far She'll Go to Become President." Its author is Edward Klein, veteran journalist with all the proper leftist bona fides, including editor of the New York Times Magazine and top editorships at Newsweek and Vanity Fair... which is precisely the problem for Missus Clinton. Klein's leftist credentials translate into credibility with Clinton's voters, both her base and the mushy middle.
Hillary Clinton has, thus, lodged a two-prong attack: blackball the author and destroy his--and his book's--credibility.
All the top-rated TV shows with the exception of "Hannity and Colmes" have complied dutifully with Clinton's censorship demands. "Extra," MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews" and CNN's "Paula Zahn" cancelled Klein, and ABC's "Good Morning America," NBC's "Today" show, and CNN's "Aaron Brown" suddenly lost interest in booking him.
"Trash for cash," (a modus operandi not unfamiliar to Missus Clinton), has become the Clinton battle cry.
If this book is a work of fiction as Clinton and her minions claim, why then is the Clinton machine working overtime to censor it?
The message is plain--Hillary Clinton does not want you to read this book.
Hillary Clinton does not want you to read this book because Edward Klein has captured her essence. He dissects the character of Hillary Clinton by examining what she does, not what she says. (Words--especially a Clinton's words--are cheap.)
Clinton spin notwithstanding, the author argues that the absolute disqualifier for Mrs. Clinton isn't about politics or sex. It's about character. Mrs. Clinton's complete lack of it. It's about Mrs. Clinton's ruthlessness and corruption, of which abuse of women is a recurring manifestation. (It is well documented that Hillary Clinton aided and abetted her husband's career in predation, and did it for power and treasure.)
After the war, Riefenstahl excused her effort as pure documentary -- watch for the Clintons and their apparatchiks to do the same one day -- yet she compiled one segment, Hitler's motorcade to Munich, from different events and shot the closeups of Nazi leaders in a staged studio sequence.
Riefenstahl insisted that the finished quality of Triumph of Will came from her editing, not from any imposition of "posed shots" or choreography on her part. With her innovative editing techniques, Riefenstahl deliberately and selectively aestheticized Hitler and the Congress' proceedings. By editing out a shot of Hitler wiping his nose and including instead "more interesting expressions," by eliminating the human, Riefenstahl eliminated the inhuman.
The only difference today, in this era of ubiquitous cameras, continuous news and the shameless auteur-tyrant, is that the Washington Press Corps, spun by and on the Hollywood-Arkansas-New York Axis, edits out the Clintons' inhumanity in real time. . .

THE JEANINE PIRRO--HILLARY CLINTON VIRTUAL MATCHUP
Hillary vs. Jeanine?
Another GREAT presentation, Mia!
The truth will come out, but THEY will not listen.........
Liberals want to workship Hillary. They can't stand the truth.
I love your comparison between Hillary and Leni Reiffenstahl. But Mia, it's so unfair.......... to Leni! This woman Leni had a successful career on her own...NO! She had several successful careers on her own, before and after Hitler. Her life is amazing, and she spent the last half of it seeking redemption.
What has Hillary done on her own? What marketable talent or skill, or charm, does Hillary possess? And has she ever admitted errors in judgement? No! Hillary always blames others when her flaws, and her ruthless, ambitious missteps are exposed.
Leni spent a few years trying to make Hitler appear a God to the masses. Hillary has spent a lifetime trying to craft that same image....for herself!
God bless you, Mia T. Mrs. Clinton is a very near and present danger.
The media reaction to the book is a prelude as to what will happen when she campaigns, She will not have to respond to anything that may be deemed a tough question.
The media will report the question as an attack.
bump hillary to the moon
<< It is the Clinton reaction to this book, more than the book itself, that proves Klein's case. >>
Ain't projection grand?
In the midst of the media firestorm over Ed Klein's blockbuster book, "The Truth About Hillary," we can see the moral cowardice and equivocation that can destroy our nation from within.
Yes, the very effective Clinton spin machine has worked with their allies in the so-called Mainstream Media to censor Klein and keep him off the TV airwaves.
But that was to be expected. NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC and CNN are all predictable. They are all left-leaning - and they all succumbed to pro-Hillary pressure.
Like all liberals they talk one game and live another. 'Diversity' and 'freedom of choice' only apply to them when it helps their cause. But allowing someone with a different point of view to share air time is a big no-no.
So we could have predicted the obvious censorship surrounding "The Truth About Hillary."
But what we could not have predicted was so many craven so-called 'conservatives' who bailed out on the Klein book in an obvious attempt to curry favor with the chablis and brie cocktail party set.
One conservative at the normally sane New York Post incorrectly stated that Ed Klein wrote that "Hillary is a lesbian." Precisely the opposite is the case: Ed Klein has repeatedly said and written, "I do not know" her sexual preference.
Another GOP strategist, said he "wanted to take a shower" after reading the book. He obviously did not read a page of it because, if anything, the book repeats much of what has previously been published elsewhere. Klein uses sourced material to paint a comprehensive picture of Hillary the political candidate.
Still another strategist attacked Klein and said his book could create a "sympathetic backlash" for Hillary. What nonsense!
Bill O'Reilly - who is not a conservative but is the number one ranked host on Fox News Channel - had the temerity to trash the Klein book - even before he obtained a copy of it - in order to burnish his 'independent' credentials. But the real truth is that he is dying to interview Hillary! He has been angling for that interview for months. These members of the Right played right into the Clintons' hands. Not attacking the Clintons is the biggest mistake the Republicans can make.
1992, 1996 and Hillary in 2000 were all the same: the strategy of "not attacking" caused Clinton victories. There are also some very courageous conservatives who have had the guts to stand behind the Ed Klein book. Among them:
Rush Limbaugh, the very first radio host to see that the Hillary spin machine was censoring Ed Klein and his book. Rush is a genius at analyzing the motives of the Left. Sean Hannity, who had the guts to withstand pressure and put Ed on both his radio show and Fox's Hannity & Colmes. Radio host Mike Gallagher who also withstood tremendous pressure. The Washington Times' Editorial Page Editor Tony Blankley - who actually read the book - and wrote a fair and honest review.
Laura Ingraham who interviewed Ed Klein and was very supportive. Thank goodness some people have the intellectual honesty to read a book before commenting on it!
Those on the Right who attacked "The Truth About Hillary" ought to be ashamed of themselves. They are intellectually dishonest with a separate - and selfish - agenda.
This book is exposing the fault lines in American politics. You are either on one side or the other.
As was once said, "All that is required for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." By doing "nothing" to take on Hillary, these so-called conservatives are helping the Clintons return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
For the sake of this nation's future, we cannot allow this to happen.
We must have the courage to fight.
