She didn't say that plaintext was better, she said that one shouldn't idealise tor as a 100% safe tool to conspire with!

tor is probably safe for minor illegal stuff (like buying drugs or watching child porn) thought, since the people monitoring it don't care about those, or don't want to expose that they've "solved" tor.

Of course no one is idealizing tools here, nothing is perfect. There are bugs, there are known longstanding issues that affect all anonymity systems (not just Tor). But the way they were framing the discussion made it look as if not using Tor was the preferable course of action.
