If there is one thing that Democrats love to talk about during the political season, it’s election fraud. But right behind election fraud… RACISM.
Democrats love racism. They cling to their racism rhetoric like a toddler to his blankey. It’s a failsafe, a comfort zone, a port in the storm. If they’re giving a speech and the crowd doesn’t seem too excited… they play the race card. If they’re losing a debate to a better prepared opponent… they play the race card. If their wife is a corrupt criminal who has been abusing our nation for more than 3 decades… they play the race card.
Case in point, Bill Clinton at recent campaign event for his wife in Orlando, Florida.
The former president found himself trying to rally support from Floridians who don’t seem to keen on calling Mrs. Clinton Madame President, and so he chose to play to the lowest common denominator and pull out “old faithful.” While talking about Donald Trump, Clinton explained to the gathered crowd that Mr. Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” is actually a racist dog whistle, code for the inherent racism of his campaign. I kid you not.
“If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means,” Clinton told the folks in Orlando.
“I’m old enough to remember the good old days. And they weren’t all that good in many ways. That message — I’ll give you America great again… If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you? It means I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago and I’ll move you back up the social totem pole and other people down. What Hillary wants to do is take the totem pole down and let us all go forward together!”
Okay. It might just be his age, but Bill Clinton seems to be flying off the rails of late. Not only does he call half the country racists (including himself), he argues that this short little slogan is packed full of meaning… It means I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago and I’ll move you back up the social totem pole and other people down.
Why can’t it just mean, “I’ll give you a better economy”? Why does it also include the racial undertones? Where does Clinton get this connection?
Look at what he says, I’m old enough to remember the good old days… If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means…”
Is it just me, or does it sound like this is what Clinton hears when Trump says “Make America Great Again”? Honestly, it just sounds like the former President is projecting his own feelings on to Donald Trump’s words.
America has traveled great distances since the Civil Rights movement won its greatest victories, but some liberals just can’t get past what we were 60 years ago. Sadly, the Clinton campaign remains mired in the past, and if America chooses Hillary Clinton to lead, the one guarantee we have is that our past problems will continue to fester.
