The Interesting Origins of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Slogan

A few months ago (before the 2016 american presidential election), I came across an interesting blog post which traced the origin of Hilary Clinton’s now infamous “I’m With Her” campaign slogan. The short version of the story is that it is almost the ad verbatim translation of the slogan for Paul von Hindenburg‘s 1932 campaign for the German presidency. For the record, Hindenburg won that election against Adolf Hitler. Paul Hindenburg died at age 86 in 1934 and the rest, as they say, is history.

FYI: “Mit Ihm” = “With Him” or “I Am With Him”.

What do you think? Comments?

    on a slightly different tangent, I’ve heard that lead poisoning causes mental impairment…

    would that be the case here???

    The key words in that clip’s title are “asian woman”. As you know, that particular category of people are known for sucking up to whites- especially very mediocre men.

      You couldn’t have said it better. Even on my personal social media profiles, I see so many American Asian women suck up to whites, CONservatives and Trump that it’s not even funny. You know what I also notice? An epidemic of bros (black men) who travel to SE Asia and those women (especially in Thailand), they try way too hard to act like a stereotypical black, ratchet soap opera character.

      I remember a topic you wrote about your distaste for East Asian women… Some white guy commented on it saying how he couldn’t stand them… My personal tastes aside, he was right when he said Asian women have no culture. One minute, they are carbon copies of whites. The next, they are carbon copies of blacks. A lot of black men I know who have had their share of them believe they are overrated and really dislike them (and prefer Latinas over them).

    If your point is Hindenburg was a Nazi supporter and fan of Adolph Hitler, I can’t agree. Even though he was doddering in 1932, he recognized what Hitler was and had only contempt for “the little corporal.” Hindenburg was old school Prussian military and knew Hitler was a long way out of his league. It was only through a combination of senility and being gamed by younger, utterly ruthless men, and threats, which “persuaded” Hindenburg to make that appointment.

    In other words, Hindenburg wasn’t a Nazi. He wasn’t a proponent of real politik, and would have proceeded honorably if permitted by circumstance.

    So I don’t think Hilary’s slogan indicates she’s a crypto-nazi. It indicates she’s politically tone deaf, unoriginal, and altogether second rate,but that’s all.

    I know all that. I was making another point.

    History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. – Karl Marx.

      Okay, then– sorry.

      But I think Hilary and all pertaining to Hilary is now consigned to the dead letter box of history.

      HRC was the only major democrat who could have lost to Trump.

        …..it wuld be history if she would go. the fuck… away…. shes still bitching, trying to raise anger about Trump and Russia, while also blaming the DNC for her failures… Trump sucks, dont get me wrong but she’s annoying af

        Agree.. as I have said before, HRC is the reason Trump won election.

      “I know all that. I was making another point.
      ” ‘History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.’ – Karl Marx.”

      Perhaps a more-appropriate article title would have been, “The Significant Unoriginality Of Hillary’s Campaign Slogan”?
