Hillary Clinton warned of fascism coming to America during an alumnae event at her alma mater, Wellesley College.
Not a parody!
After posting a number of Babylon Bee parodies, this one read exactly like it would have been written by a parody writer trying to make Hillary Clinton appear deranged.
“I think Madeline [Albright]'s book is really well-named: "Fascism: A Warning," Clinton said. “And the idea that 'oh, it can’t happen here' is just old-fashioned, my friends.”
“The demagoguery, the appeal to the crowd, the very clever use of symbols, the intimidation, verbal and physical,” she listed, “this is a classic pattern. There is nothing new about it, it's just different means of messages being delivered."
Clinton mentioned fascist dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini and, although she never explicitly used Trump’s name, she referenced him quite frequently during her speech and repeated a few accusations against him, including Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and obstruction of justice.
"I think with the rapidity with which information can be conveyed today because of the internet, it is an even more dangerous set of circumstances..." Clinton said, seemingly comparing Trump's America to Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy.
