I like her word, groupthink. From Wikipedia-

Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative viewpoints, by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences.

Loyalty to the group requires individuals to avoid raising controversial issues or alternative solutions, and there is loss of individual creativity, uniqueness and independent thinking. The dysfunctional group dynamics of the “ingroup” produces an “illusion of invulnerability” (an inflated certainty that the right decision has been made). Thus the “ingroup” significantly overrates its own abilities in decision-making, and significantly underrates the abilities of its opponents (the “outgroup”). Furthermore, groupthink can produce dehumanizing actions against the “outgroup”.

This is Hillary Clinton’s core base.

  1. I’m a 70 year old white male. I was going to vote for HRC when she ran against Obama. I thought a woman president was a great idea whose time had come. I had a lady friend who had worked with HRC years back. She said Hillary was cold, vicious, power hungry, ruthless, etc. and advised me to “do my homework on Hillary first”. I did a lot of reading and research and discovered she was exactly right. I wouldn’t vote for Hillary under any circumstances whatsoever!
