During her interview with a New York radio station in the city’s black cultural center, Harlem, Democratic Party presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton told listeners — presumably African Americans — that she never travels without some hot sauce in her ladies’ handbag. One of the black hosts of the talk show said that Mrs. Clinton’s comment might become labeled pandering. With her trademark laugh — a sound her opponents liken to cackling — she quipped, “Is it working?”
“I’m surprised she just didn’t say ‘watermelon’ [and] just go all the way,’ Milwaukee County, Wisconsin’s celebrity lawman Sheriff David Clarke said on Fox News Channel’s ‘Fox & Friends.’ While the black politicians in the Democratic Party are quick to call Clarke part of the right-wing Republicans’ anti-Hillary movement, the popular lawman is a registered Democrat and ran for office and won as a Democrat.
“Bill Clinton, as some of you may recall, was sometimes jokingly called ‘The first black President’ because he supposedly identified so much with the struggles of black Americans. Well, after having the audacity to cross the race-hustling thugs of the Black Lives Matter movement recently, Bill may have lost his ‘street cred,'” noted Clarke in an email announcement.
With Bill Clinton not being treated as he was during his scandal-ridden reign — including allegations of rape, harassment, perjury, etc. — Mrs. Clinton isn’t enjoying the adulation she expected from the Democrat party base. The left-wing of her party appear to prefer the 74-year-old socialist Bernie Sanders including some well-known Hollywood leftists.
Another black lawman, Det. Sgt. Samuel Griffin from Lawrence, ID, believes that whenever Hillary Clinton addresses a group of blacks, she suddenly acquires what she perceives is an African American dialect.
“I’ll never forget during a speech while campaigning against Barack Obama, Clinton said, ‘I won’t stop fighting for you no matter how tired these ol’ bones gets.’ It was a disgusting display of racism that went unnoticed or was laughed-off by the schmucks in the news media,” said Griffin.
“So apparently Hillary is now trying to shore up her support with transparent appeals to dehumanizing black stereotypes,” said Clarke. Mrs. Clinton is also credited with saying that young men and women — and children — join violent street gangs in order to attain the structure of having a functional family unit.
“Imagine the offensive racist implications that the media would find in that statement if a conservative had said it,” Clarke said.
“If this is the type of artlessly offensive pandering we can expect from Mrs. Clinton as the campaign goes on, it’s going to be a long six months. You know, this stuff is dehumanizing. It’s embarrassing. It’s disgusting,’ he said.
“And if any other candidate were to say something like that, some stereotype about black people, it would derail their campaign. But the rules seem to be different for the Clintons,” said Clarke, one of the nation’s most recognizable law enforcement officer.
