The "Slap Hillary Clinton" Online "Game"

29 August 2013

It’s not even been a year since the last US Presidential election but already the campaign for the next one in 2016 is underway.
 
No candidates have put themselves forward yet.
 
But if their supporters had their way, their candidates would have been endorsed by now and set out on the gruelling  24/7 routine politics of  “meet and greet” and “grip and grin”
 
Enthusiasts are already out on the streets wooing voters to support a potential candidate in an election three years from now.
 

The merchandise is in abundance  - T-shirts, posters and buttons

The websites are up
 
Ready for Hillary is already rooting for the former Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady.

Across the political divide, however, its murkier depths remained fixated with the Clintons.
 
A right-wing organisation has produced a repugnant online “game” called “Slap Hillary”  
 
Press one button and Hillary speaks
 
Press another and a hand appears from the other side of the screen to slap her in the face.
 
The website carries an online petition of high pretensions with a contemptible message :
 
Hillary Clinton - the name alone strikes dread in the hearts of freedom loving Americans.
Can you imagine what damage a Hillary White House could do to our country? .
Years of image rehab by Hollywood and the liberal media has helped Hillary effectively convince voters to forget about her past.
If left unabated, Hillary Clinton has an excellent chance of becoming our next president.
Our Goal: 20 million signatures to tell Hillary to stay home! SIGN NOW

 

This “game” has understandably disturbed and infuriated women’s groups across the US  who are calling for it to be removed as it condones violence against women and cannot be justified on the grounds that all politicians are supposedly “fair game”
 
In everyday life, the facts are appalling.

Women’s Aid says :

“At least 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence in their lifetime and between 1 in 8 and 1 in 10 women experience it annually. Less than half of all incidents are reported to the police, but they still receive one domestic violence call every minute in the UK

Violence against women is wrong and not a subject for bad humour.
