Skip to comments.White Privilege Helps Hillary Clinton Survive Controversy. Bernie Sanders Was Arrested in 1963

For many people on the left, especially my fellow white liberals, looking into the mirror is either uncomfortable, or an experience akin to amnesia. However, imagine if Barack Obama had fabricated a story about surviving sniper fire, only to say that he misspoke.
The Atlantic has a recap of at least eight controversies and scandals involving Hillary Clinton. Do you think a person of color in America's political system could have overcome or circumvented this list of controversy?
That's called white privilege at its height.
Furthermore, although Bernie Sanders has also benefited from white privilege, could he have survived politically from fabricating a story about dodging Bosnian snipers?
In terms of egregious white privilege, Hillary Clinton is able to circumvent endless scandal, and perpetual evolution on key issues, in part because she's white.
For example, imagine Michelle Obama becomes a Senator, and then runs for the presidency during an FBI investigation.
If Michelle Obama emulated Clinton's controversial path towards a presidential run, could she have withstood endless scandal and even an FBI investigation?
If Barack Obama had the FBI investigating his private server in 2008, would he have become president?
Sure, Bernie is white and benefited from being white, but he went to jail, while around the same time Hillary Clinton was a "high-school Young Republican and 'Goldwater Girl.'" Also, remember to correlate Clinton's prison lobbyist donors and "super predator" statements to where her political career began in terms of ideology.

So sick of the black and white crap can’t tell you.
Speaking of white privilege. Sanders didn’t earn his first paycheck till he was 40.
White House Privilege Helps Hillary Clinton Survive Controversy.
When have Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton ever told the truth?
How about the BLM nitwits? They’re honest?
And Hank Johnson thinks Guam could tip over if too many Marines are stationed there.
Let’s not even talk about a moron like Sheila Jackson Lee.
Kwame Kilpatrick eventually went to prison, but he avoided it for years, even though everyone knew he was a crook.
And the former Mayor of DC, who got busted and jailed for using crack cocaine, and was re-elected!!! As Chris Rock said, “Smoked crack; got his job back”.
HuffPo is delusional. As usual.
Did he have a job before then?
With the help of the media... YEAH! Here's Obama's list:
- IRS targeting of political enemies... and there's more!
- Benghazi... shared with Hillary
- Spying on the Press (AP, Rosen, Attkisson, et al)
- Fast and Furious
- The Pigford Scandal
- Veterans Affairs failures
- Solyndra and other failed ventures funded by tax dollars
- Dropping the Black Panthers prosecution of voter intimidation
- Attacking Libya with no authorization whatsoever
- Working around Congress with his pen and his phone
- Arresting the maker of the infamous Benghazi "video" -- coincidental timing?
Hillary has had the mainstream and leftist media covering her ass since the early 90’s. Sanders has had local newspapers “be friendly” to him re his Marxist ideology. Just read the new York Times from the 70’s and 80’s.
The MSM/leftist media’s mantra has always been “Say nothing bad or negative about our people” and they have been very successful in covering up their past and activities for over 60 years.
That was my special area of reporting, on the Left, for a number of conservative newspapers and newsletters, bringing to our readers what the MSM/L covered up, left out on purpose, or distorted.
some good websites to go to for information on the Left are www.keywiki.org, www.DiscoverTheNetwork.com (or .org) and one roughly entitled “The AmericanLeft or Biography of the American Left (just learned about it but don’t have its’ email address).
Baraq has so much privilege and protection, he is in a category by himself.
If I could post there I’d flame the a-wipe.
So sick of this WP garbage.
Why don’t the minorities just call for whitey tax. That’s what they want.
Nothing but sh## in a big sh## pile
Another good source is the CPUSA website.
It lays out their goals for the USA.
Compare their goals to what the modern democrat party is doing. It is very similar.
Is Alcee Hastings still in Congress?
The only reason Hillary gets away with her criminal escapades and incompetence is because the liberal media glosses over it all.
A conservative doing the same would not get away with one single thing.
Speaking of black privilege, Obama is 54 and has yet to earn a paycheck, although he has been paid (Illinois legislature, US Senate, White House).
