It is no secret that Bernie Sander’s candidacy has pushed Hillary Clinton further to the left than she wanted to go. He has made it harder for her to get back to the middle where she can then appeal to independents and disaffected Republicans.
Unfortunately for her, she is now in a position where she must pander to a disparate group of leftist interests including radical racial sentiment among minorities.
In light of the horrible bloodshed in Dallas, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton continues to widen the divide between black and white Americans.
Instead of condemning the acts of the sniper who shot 12 people, she is blaming white Americans for the problem.
It’s clear this pathetic, hate-filled woman is only pandering for votes. Her lead continues to slip as Donald Trump gains more and more momentum. Her shameful past over her irresponsible and criminal treatment of classified documents is exposing her as unfit for the job. So she is turning to whatever trick she can use to claw back some support.
Traditionally, liberals have bamboozled black voters into supporting them, despite the fact that their polices deprive them of jobs, force them to become dependent on Welfare, and treat them like second class citizens. It’s worked in the past, but Clinton just doesn’t have the reputation for that trick to work. So she’s using the recent conflict to boost her support.
And what she’s saying is more racist than anything coming from Black Lives Matter.
Hillary Clinton used a CNN interview on Friday to completely embrace the Democrats’ claim that white people and cops must change to help reduce the number of African-Americans killed in tense exchanges with cops.
“I will call for white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American families who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have ‘The Talk,’ about, you now, how to really protect themselves [from police], when they’re the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with police,” Clinton told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
Hillary is using a classic tactic. She is oversimplifying the situation by reinforcing stereotypes. These stereotypes have not been relevant since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s, where many black Americans were afraid of being harassed by cops. But in an age when black and Hispanic Americans are in fact law enforcement agents themselves, can this still be true?
And how is it white Americans’ fault if a black person is shot by a cop? Does she want black Americans to believe all white people get together and tell cops to shoot black people? Does she think that cops only target black Americans, not anyone who is breaking the law or posing a credible threat?
When she spews this ignorant and toxic nonsense, she intentionally hides the facts. Yes, from the outside, it looks like cops are aggressively targeting young black men. But the sad reality is that the vast majority of crime in the country is committed by young black men. You can argue over why that is, but the fact remains police aren’t “singling them out,” they are simply responding to crime.
Neither Blitzer nor Clinton suggested that African-American communities have a role in reducing police-encounter deaths, which usually occur in tense engagements between a few cops and a few suspects with extensive criminal histories.
In general, young African-American men are far more likely to commit crimes than young white men, young Asian men or young Latino men. A November 2011 report by the Justice Department showed that young African-American men are just 1 percent of the population, yet are responsible for a disproportionate percentage of murders in the nation.
Clinton suggested that people who disagree with her agenda are racists. “There is so much more to be done… we can’t be engaging in hateful rhetoric or incitement of violence, we need to be bringing people together … we need more love and kindness.”
Clinton has officially crossed over to the side of emotion over facts when she calls someone who questions her racist. When you cannot support your claims by facts, using insults and slurs to defend your position, you are quickly losing ground. Clinton is sliding down a mud-slicked mountainside, desperate to cling to whatever she can.
But the truth is, she going to fall, regardless.
