A plurality of American voters – tens of millions – may be about to elect Hillary Clinton, a candidate widely described as the most corrupt person ever to run for the U.S. presidency, preceded by over three decades of wall-to-wall scandals, sleaze, corruption and outright criminality, including an ongoing FBI investigation into the wildly corrupt Clinton Foundation. How is this possible?
That’s the question veteran journalist and WND Managing Editor David Kupelian asked – and answered – late last week while guest-hosting the “The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show.”
Could it be, Kupelian wondered aloud, that Bill and Hillary Clinton are so sociopathic that the average American can’t even comprehend their dark motivations, since they don’t harbor such impulses or feelings within themselves?
“I don’t think people get criminality,” said Kupelian, an award-winning journalist and best-selling author of several books on evil, including “The Marketing of Evil,” “How Evil Works” and, most recently, “The Snapping of the American Mind.”
Most voters, explained Kupelian, size up candidates according to their politics and worldview. “We are so used to thinking about liberal/conservative, big government/small government, you’re against gay rights/you’re for gay rights or gay marriage, and so forth. We get that – and then we vote accordingly.”
But truly sociopathic or criminal thinking is foreign and opaque to the average voter’s thinking, he said.
“We understand people because of what we have in ourselves. We can extrapolate,” he said, citing for example: “We understand somebody who’s got envy, because we’ve had envy. We understand a person who got really angry and killed somebody and went to prison. We maybe have never gotten that angry, but we have been angry – and so we sort of understand that person.” However, he said, “We don’t really understand people who dream of controlling entire nations.”
It’s hard for “everyday Americans” to understand how Hillary Clinton could laugh after declaring, “We came, we saw, he died,” referring to the death of Moammar Gadhafi; or how she could lead a NATO bombing effort that killed thousands in Libya and destabilized the country; or how she could look Gold Star parents directly in the eyes at a casket ceremony three days after the Benghazi terror attack and lie to them about why their children died.
“We don’t understand,” said Kupelian, “the mentality of people who are so into their own ambition and what they want that they are willing to literally sacrifice thousands of people. We don’t have thoughts like this, we don’t have fantasies like this, and so therefore we don’t understand” when such foreign and dark forces motivate others, especially when they have such a cultivated and civilized exterior.
“The danger of this,” said Kupelian, is that in Americans’ “innocence or naïvete, we give other people that are truly in the grip of evil, we give them a pass, because it’s not on our radar – we don’t see it in ourselves, we don’t understand criminality. I think people don’t understand Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton.”

Noting that Hillary’s criminality goes far beyond the current email/national security and Clinton Foundation scandals, Kupelian quickly reviewed highlights of the Clintons’ decades-long history of scandals, from White House scandals like Filegate, Travelgate, Chinagate and Pardongate to their use of the IRS to target political opponents, to their stealing furniture on the way out of the White House at the end of their time there – when they were actually required to return $28,000 worth of furniture and art to the White House.
“Bill Clinton is a certified sexual predator,” Kupelian added. “He has a credible allegation of rape. Don’t talk to me about Donald Trump kissing somebody. We’re talking about forcible rape. Rape used to be a capital offense. People were put to death for forcible rape. And then we have Hillary Clinton that covers up and abuses the victims further.”
Saying the Clintons should be in prison “a dozen times over” for their crimes, Kupelian summarizes his theory: “The Clintons are so dark – they are in the grip of such dark forces and the kinds of thoughts and feelings that most people don’t even have at their darkest times, their most angry times – that we give them a pass because we can’t – we don’t see it inside ourselves, so we can’t project it out when we see it in them,” the author explained. “So… we believe the crap: ‘Oh, well, she’s always been for women and children.’ It’s unbelievable.”
