8. Trust me, there are

many Black men like myself who aren't overlooking it and it's one of many reasons I could never in good conscience cast my vote for Hillary Clinton. I'd like to see her try to explain this comment today.

14. I already know it.

The Black members of my family feel as you do and so do my Black friends.

21. Cool

I'm still working on convincing my parents - they're in their 70's and think no one is going to vote for a self-described socialist, but they're not overly thrilled with Hillary.

6. She has an authoritarian streak that runs through so much of her rhetoric.


It's very off-putting.

7. Presidential material everyone!

 

Just make the prison industry donations out to Debbie. Hillary will get back to you AFTER she has won the primaries, when there is no more chance of an actual reformer doing something about institutional racism.

17. Cut it out! But it is odd how she treats boys like adults, but adults on Wall Street like children.

11. I agree with her.

 

"No empathy, no conscience." We need to bring those Wall Street predators to heel. Maybe Hillary too.

18. As always, Warren, you fail to understand the nuances

You see marijuana needs more study so that the active ingredients can be properly patented and controlled by giant pharmaceutical interests who will then donate a small fraction of the yuuuge profits to my reelection campaign as God intended.

15. Such very caring and

comforting words, a true progressive who believe in second chances and lifting people up and not beating them down.

19. I can't do the video right now so I looked it up and she's talking about kids...

 

"They are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way but first we have to bring them to heel."


Cambridge dictionary of idioms defines 'bring to heel' in this way:
bring somebody to heel- to force someone to obey you


It is of course a phrase taken from the training of dogs and thus not one I would personally use about any people.

20. Yes, dog training. That is the way she thinks of people as dogs to be taught to heel on command

Poor people are conscienceless, sociopathic animals who need to be treated just like dogs, not human beings with minds and thoughts of their own.
