Fri Oct 16, 2015, 09:36 AM

 

It boggles my mind that we black folk forgot about how racist the Clinton camp was in 2008!

I just came back to say this.

Stockholm Syndrome? No.

Bad memory and too quick to forgive? Yes.

Reminders:

In reference to MLK, Jr. - paraphrasing from Hillary: "It look LBJ to get it done, not pretty speeches"

YouTube of her own words:

Regarding "hard working white people" from Hillary:



The above includes Bill Clinton's disgusting remarks about Jesse Jackson's run for president. So disgusting that Jim Clyburn had to call him and tell him to STOP:

http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/04/25/clinton.clyburn/

More disgusting racist Hillary digs at Obama (invoking Bobby Kennedy's assassination) after she knew he had been receiving unprecedented death threats:

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/24/us/politics/24clinton.html

(This incident led to the Kennedy family's endorsement of Obama!)

And don't forget the racist dog whistles from the Clinton camp: Geraldine Ferraro's assertion that Obama's race is the only deciding factor for why he is doing well--not his merit, not his talent, not his intelligence:

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/hey_wait_a_minute/2008/03/playing_the_racist_card.html

Ed Rendell was also despicable:

http://www.post-gazette.com/local/2008/02/14/Rendell-offers-his-defense-on-Obama-race-remark/stories/200802140484

And Paul Begala and James Carville's behavior was absolutely HORRID!

----

Why don't the majority of blacks remember this racist crap from the Clinton camp? And more important, why are they forgiving them for their horrible behavior?

Note: I don't support ANY Democratic Party nominee at this point--not Bernie, not Hillary, not O'Malley, and certainly not Webb. None of them have shown me that they give a shit about black folks; they only want the black vote.

1. "We black folks"?? Did you really type that! And expect....belief?

The vast majority of "black folks" remain thoughtfully and rightly loyal to the Clintons and have voted their preference with hindsight and thought and reject the premise offered.

The Clintons have talked the talk and walked the walk!

6. Clinton's policies were absolutely horrible for black people! HORRIBLE!!

 

So, yes, I said it: "WE BLACK FOLK"!!

- NAFTA
- Omnibus Crime Bill
- Initial welfare reform package that severely penalized parents with children
- Deregulation of telecommunication, which is having a disproportionately detrimental impact on owners of black television networks

I could go on and on, but these are just a few of the horrible Clinton policies.

10. To what then, do "we black folks" attribute the current overwhelming support for the Clintons??

My answer is that the Clintons have done much good through a lifetime, and will do much more good than bad in the future as well, and that is good enough for solid support based on the overall evidence.

We black folk are smart and observant and not amnesic or selective.

Is dangerously close to ... well ... see my sigline ...

Personally, the best, and IMO, only, response to "the Clintons are bad" is to point out that HRC is NOT Bill Clinton and point to her voting record, while in Congress, and the work of her foundation.

2. I gave you a rec

Because this post will show how legitimate criticism and VETTING of a candidate should never be hidden.

Never.

But I love me some O'Malley L.S. Love him.

And I've not forgotten any of this about Clinton -


But I don't believe for ONE 100th of a second we should compromise to the point of rolling back voting rights, civil rights, women's rights, abortion rights, GLBT rights, etc. etc.

I think this time around - won't be seeing anything we saw in the 2008 campaign. It's not going to happen from that camp.

EDIT - PS I also gave you a rec because you stated what many of us think of Sanders.

For months or even more than a year. On this forum the only candidate called a racist was hillary Clinton.

But it didn't result in attacks against members who said so. And a bunch of lectures about what is best.

I just do not want to a republican win in 2016. Black Americans can hold onto anger and not see the forest for the trees. There is too much at stake. For one, the Supreme Court, there might be three opening in the next eight years. Do we want another Scalia, Roberts, or Alito. How do you propose we handle the Clintons. I do not believe that Sanders can win in the general election. The whole of the right wing is preparing to demonize the so called "communist". I am not willing to take that chance.

And it's so good to see you again.

But like I told you before, if black folks never voted for candidates that did us wrong, we'd never vote for anybody.

I think many black folks remember how screwed up her campaign was in 2008 and are STILL supporting her in huge numbers. I don't think it's a question of forgiven or forgotten at all. I think if anything, it speaks to the quality of the other Dem candidates running against her.

Liberals want to forget their generally miserable record on anything to do with race.

White leftists too, for that matter, though all of the truly racially open (political) movements have been on the far left, so it's a little different.

Same goes for gender and identity equality issues.

to shame with their crowd of clumsy clowns. What I hear from my black friends is that they think she has the best chance of winning for any number of reasons. It is not a commentary on the quality of other Dems. I actually like Bernie quite a lot, but I do not believe he has a snowball's chance in hell. Hillary, however, has been my first choice for a long, long time.

21. I liked her better. You are right though, at the time I also did not think Obama could win.

 

Despite not being a supporter of his, I was pleasantly surprised to find I was wrong about his chances of winning.

I still like her better. As I said, I do like Bernie too. There are several things Hillary has done that have disappointed me, but overall I think she is the better candidate. However, my mind is always open. I look forward to the upcoming debates. I am not one of those who cares who is the "winner" of the debates. I look to them to learn more about each candidate and hear what they have to say. I would be the first to admit I am still learning about Bernie and O'Malley. And as I said, I am very, very pleased (and proud) at the quality of our candidates.

I did not believe him when he said he would close Guantanamo. I did not believe that he would get us out of foreign entanglements. I was right both times.

I had no idea he would begin a campaign of killing people by drone. That is something I could never have even imagined.

As to "foreign interventions"...how many has it been that Obama has engaged in that he started, other than ISIS aerial campaign?

Maybe I forgot something.

And if the Iran nuclear deal is not saying something about Obama's foreign affairs abilities, then that speaks to how one measures foreign affair abilities....Obama has had multiple opportunities to start wars and has declined....amnesia is not my strong suit.

Kind of contradictory to the whole "Obama is a warhawk" meme?

45. This election, for me, is not about "who I like". It's about quality, and of the field (for me) HRC

is by far the most qualified as the first debate proved. As you were "not a fan of Obama", I am not a fan of BS. There are many reasons for that, and "quality" plays into my decision. A lot of aspirational talk, with no actual explanation of the mechanism to bring about the change he seeks. For someone who has been on Capitol Hill for decades, with little to show for it, I don't know where his coalition building begins. He has two (2) Democratic endorsements, and these are the people who have worked with him, and presumably know him best.

So, I take issue with your characterization of BS as a "quality Dem". Besides, AFAIK, he's still not a Dem to this day.

That is a simple statement of fact.

I will vote for whoever it is, and I also believe that Bernie if elected could and would accomplish very little until the House and Senate were taken over by not just Democrats but liberal Democrats and that could be AFTER he left office.

It isnt Bernie's fault that he couldnt possibly accomplish anything in certain areas while surrounded by "status quo" politicians.

I trust Hillary to do the right thing on social issues and NOT to fix the Wall Street problem.

But on so many other issues yes, I agree.

Look, George Carlin told the truth about politicians and I have no illusions that any of them can be trusted to do what actually needs to be done.

In the case of Bernie he cant because he has to have WAY more help in members of congress, and in the case of Hillary she has no intention of doing the extreme stuff needed to deal with Wall Street.

But both of them have every intention to continue many of the good social issues of the Obama presidency.

59. To pull a page from our neighbors to the north, it looks like Canada just elected Pierre Trudeau's

liberal kid--so Goodbye, Harper, after ten long years.

That said, the PEOPLE didn't elect him. They elected LEGISLATORS who are of a liberal bent, and that's how they get their guy.

Now they have the lawmakers AND the leadership to get things done.

Bernie would be a lame duck from day one--he won't have the lawmakers on his side. He'd be a one-termer who will talk a lot and only accomplish minimal things, mostly through exective orders (and there's not a helluva lot one can do with those--it's very constrained).

60. If it doesn't apply to your wife then I'm not talking to her. MOST is not "ALL"!

61. And if you reversed the past 200 yrs the white version of Obama would get 100% of the vote

from whites, one hundred percent.

Obama being Black is a very important feature as to why I voted for him.

Not the only one, but a very important one.

In a country where race is so important, is so visible and so part of almost every area of life, of course his being Black is very important.

If a Black non rightwing American didnt vote for him, I would be wanting to know why, I mean I would be god damn curious.
