Of course Hillary Clinton is a racist whose words, policies and indifference have only increased division, despair, misery and poverty in America’s predominantly black inner-cities. She stokes fear, and she preys on these communities with policies of dependence and nihilism. Trump is absolutely right when he says that Clinton sees people of color only as votes and not as human beings.
Clinton’s naked racism comes in many forms.
Its breadth and scope spans decades.
1. Hillary Clinton is the Godmother of the Birther Movement
Obviously the mainstream media is now memory-holing all of this…
The anti-Obama Birther movement began in March of 2007 with a memo written by Mark Penn, Hillary’s chief campaign strategist:
[Penn] wrote, “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.” Penn proposed targeting Obama’s “lack of American roots.”
According to John Heilemann and Mark Halperin in Game Change, the most ludicrous “othering” theory that Clinton allies engaged in was that a tape existed, somewhere, of Michelle Obama denouncing “whitey” — and that Clinton herself believed it when consigliere Sid Blumenthal talked about it.
But the Clinton campaign never pursued the idea that Obama was literally not American, and therefore ineligible for the presidency. A small group of hardcore Clinton supporters did. Specifically, anyone reading the fringe Web in the summer of 2008 could find the now-defunct blog called TexasDarlin, the now-defunct blog PUMAParty, and the now-conservative blog HillBuzz posting updates on the hunt for a birth certificate. It was a thin reed, and they knew it.
Then the Birther movement began in earnest with the outright questioning of Obama’s citizenship:
An anonymous email circulated by supporters of Mrs Clinton, Mr Obama’s main rival for the party’s nomination, thrust a new allegation into the national spotlight — that he had not been born in Hawaii.
“Barack Obama’s mother was living in Kenya with his Arab-African father late in her pregnancy,” it said. “She was not allowed to travel by plane then, so Barack Obama was born there and his mother then took him to Hawaii to register his birth.” Then in August 2008 Phil Berg, an ex-deputy attorney general for Pennsylvania and a renowned conspiracy theorist, filed a lawsuit alleging that Mr Obama was ineligible to be a candidate.
Obama himself reprimanded Hillary for spreading the rumor he was a Muslim:
[Obama] very respectfully told her the apology was kind, but largely meaningless, given the emails it was rumored her camp had been sending out labeling him as a Muslim. Before he could finish his sentence, she exploded on Obama. In a matter of seconds, she went from composed to furious. It had not been Obama’s intention to upset her, but he wasn’t going to play the fool either.
Clinton’s 2008 campaign then released this now-infamous photo of Obama dressed as a Muslim.
Hillary herself went full-Birther on no less than “60 Minutes” reassuring America that Obama is not a Muslim … “as far as I know.”
2. Hillary’s Racist Policies
For more than fifty years Democrats like Hillary Clinton have backed policies that have provably decimated our predominantly black inner-cities and more importantly, the black family. The welfare state is nothing more than another plantation. Moreover, all of the left’s do-gooder crime policies almost exclusively hurt urban areas. Criminals prey primarily on the poor, not on the residents of Chappaqua or the Virginia suburbs.
Hillary’s opposition to school choice and charter schools is not only mercenary, it is monstrous.
It is the hatred of contempt and indifference that flames Hillary’s bigotry.
3. Hillary Embraces Racist Black Lives Matter
Other than the police officers being hunted down and murdered (many of whom are not white), who does Black Lives Matter most hurt? Blacks. Every single one of these BLM riots have happened in black neighborhoods.
The increase in crime, that is a direct effect of Democrats and their media mainstreaming the anti-police BLM movement, is primarily devastating black communities.
4. Hillary Blasts Jewish Campaign Operative: “F*cking Jew Bastard.”
5. Hillary Smears Generation of Black Men as “Super Predators” Who Must Be Brought “To Heel.”
6. Hillary Clinton Jokes About Mahatma Gandhi Owning a Gas Station
This was while she was a United States Senator:
7. Hillary Jokes About “Colored People’s Time”
This happened just this year:
“Colored people’s time” refers to a stereotype about black people rarely being on time.
Hillary’s words and actions have damaged and stereotyped black Americans in the worst way possible.
If that’s not a racist, what is?
