What Hillary hasn’t integrated as a factoid is that the internet exists and bloggers as well. Statement made that otherwise previously would have drifted far off into the ether never to be heard or seen again decades ago are now available if someone has the time and inclination to dig for it. America’s Watchtower does that and brings us this Hillary Clinton regrets calling black youths ‘super predators’ in 1996
Last night Hillary Clinton held a fundraising event which was disrupted by two Black Lives Matter protesters who wanted the former Secretary of State to explain some racist comments she made while she was the First Lady.
Of course “at-risk youth” is a dog-whistle for “black youth” and by saying they needed to “bring them to heel” is obviously in reference to training them to submit to their masters like dogs. She also called them “super predators.”
This brings to mind the Presidential race of 2008 when in South Carolina Bill Clinton famously quipped “a few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.” Another racially tinged statement from the Clinton’s.
