Skip to comments.Going Old South On Obama ... (Ma And Pa Clinton Flog Uppity Black Man)
Posted on 01/17/2008 8:00:46 AM PST by IrishMike
During Bill Clinton's first run for President, I appeared on a New York radio panel with some of his black supporters, including Paul Robeson, Jr., son of the actor and singer.
I said that Clinton had character problems. They dismissed my comments and said that I didn't know anything about politics and should stick to writing novels. (Clarence Page, who has monopoly on the few column inches and airtime made available to black columnists by the corporate media, said the same thing about me. I should stick to creative writing and leave politics alone.)
These criticisms didn't deter me. Writing in The Baltimore Sun, I was the first to identify Clinton as a black president as a result of his mimicking a black style. (I said he was the second, since Warren G. Harding never denied the rumors about his black ancestry.)
As a result of his ability to imitate the black preaching style, Clinton was able to seduce black audiences, who ignored some of his actions that were unfriendly, even hostile to blacks. His interrupting his campaign to get a mentally disabled black man, Ricky Ray Rector executed. (Did Mrs. Clinton tear up about this act?) His humiliation of Jesse Jackson. His humiliation of Jocelyn Elders and Lani Gunier.
The welfare reform bill that has left thousands of women black, white, yellow and brown destitute, prompting Robert Scheer to write in the San Francisco Chronicle, "To his everlasting shame as president, Clinton supported and signed welfare legislation that shredded the federal safety net for the poor from which he personally had benefited." (Has Ms. Clinton shed a tear for these women, or did she oppose her husband's endorsement of this legislation?)

The Clintons divide the population into four groups:
1. People who they can use. The Clinton gang uses them to the fullest and throw them away when done.Only those in group 4 are worthy of the Clintons' tears.
2. People who oppose them. The Clinton gang tries to destroy them.
3. People who do neither. The Clintons see if they are closer to group 1 or group 2, and then treat them appropriately.
4. The Clintons themselves. They are the only ones that matter.
What we have here is who is the authentic VICTIM, the oppression advocates and their oppressors will have to duke it out....this is too rich, LMAO!

long but excellent read, and very well researched. Gloria Steinham should learn a lesson or two.
It is a dynamite article.
I thought the MOD’s would pull it because of the headline.
Blahblahblah. Black reparation pimps like this guy are always dwelling on the ancient past in their quest to blame everyone else for everything. Including, here, white feminists in particular.
I would love it if these two welfare whining interest groups went at each others throats in a politically significant way.. What Democrat fun!...Youre a racist! No, youre a sexist!
They all knew what Clinton was, they didnt care..it WAS about politics !.
From Rev. Jesse jackson back in 1991 ish
“there’s nothing he won’t do. He’s immune to shame. Move past all the nice posturing and get really down there in him, you find nothing...nothing but an appetite.”
Excellent post!. Your comment in quotes reminds me humorously of something Dean Martin said about Sammy DAvis Jr.
Frank Sinatra said something about Sammy Davis Jr. sitting at the back of the bus.
Dean Martin said, “Hell, he owned the bus!” :`)
If that were not bad enough, Clinton’s campaign has been pursuing a fairly obvious strategy of having surrogates attack Obama while the campaign itself denies any involvement.
We seem to be at the point where there are now two credible possibilities. One is that the Clinton campaign is intentionally pursuing a strategy of using surrogates to hit Obama with racially-charged language or with charges that while not directly tied to race nonetheless play to stereotypes about black men. The other possibility is that the Clinton campaign is extraordinarily unlucky and continually finds its surrogates stumbling on to racially-charged or denigrating language when discussing Obama.
There has been an entire string of these “gaffes” from Clinton surrogates. What we have here is a deliberately planned campaign of smear.
Do you think the Clinton planned smear might work in our favor?
They didn’t even cry over the victims of 9/11 !!!! Even the FRENCH cired over what happened on 9/11 to the US.
Great line and great whole post.
I should I also point out that The Klu Klux Klan was created by the democrats for the express reason of terrorizing blacks and republicans in the south to prevent them from voting, and that every known Klansman that were members of congress have been democrats.
