It is lying politics, not just stupid dog-whistle politics. The Republican Party seems only to know how to lie.

That is not true of all of them, but the better ones are leaving.

Hey, there aren't any real Communists any more either but that doesn't stop them from calling any social programs or public services they don't like (or anyone who supports them) "communist."

Except that HRC is anything but far left.
True. But it doesn't matter what she is or isn't. Y'know, in real life. The RW propagandists have created a fictional demon and put her face on it. And the vile MSM in all its vagueness repeats it (heard today "Even though Hillary isn't running for anything, she represents liberal tax and spend policies the right is against.") They are doing the same thing with Pelosi.

A person either understands and recognizes dog-whistle politics and bullshit or they don't. Or they think it's great.
:yeah: Thirty years of demonizing HRC has become an unbreakable habit at this point. They concentrated so completely on her that those same words just don't resonate unless she is attached to it somehow.
