Hillary Clinton A Neocon? Come On People, You KNOW Better!

My reply to a quote from an article in NYTimes “The Next Act of the Neocons” by
Jacob Heilbrunn July 5, 2014

Heilbrunn TRIES to make the case that Hillary Clinton is a neocon but fails miserably!  Why?  Because one can not prove something that is NOT TRUE!
Heilbrunn says:

“And the thing is, these neocons have a point. (So the neocons prefer HRC over Rand Paul, what a SURPRISE! BUT, THAT does not make HRC a neocon!)

Mrs. Clinton voted for the Iraq war (please read speech she made with vote in my blog post, https://bewarethebelievers.com/2014/11/13/hillary-clinton-speech-in-senate-when-cast-iraq-war-vote/ );

supported sending arms to Syrian rebels (So, anyone who’s not an isolationist is a neocon?!! Is Obama a neocon? He IS militarily supporting Syrian rebels. You, others, want up/down decisions when it’s NOT an up/down world!);

likened Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, to Adolf Hitler (So what! He DID invade Ukraine! How does that make her neocon?!!);

wholeheartedly backs Israel (Since when does supporting Israel make one a neocon? She is for two-state solution, which WILL require Palestine to recognize Israel’s right to exist.);

and stresses the importance of promoting democracy. (WOW! If one promotes democracy THAT makes them a neocon? How absurd! Since democracy is supposed to support the rights of ALL people, I would think a POTUS would promote democracy!)

Neocon: 
1. A political philosophy developed in the 1970s and 1980s, advocating the active use of government power in pursuit of conservative domestic and foreign policies.

2. A conservative who advocates the assertive promotion of democracy and United States national interest in international affairs including through military means.

Anyone who calls Hillary Clinton a neocon is sadly mistaken and have not one leg to stand on to make that claim! They have simply believed the main stream media’s portrayal of her as such in the ’08 primaries. Prior to that, she had actually been referred to as a socialist and a communist!
