Stop me before I pander again (audio clip of Hillary Clinton's Selma speech)
American Thinker ^ | March 05, 2007 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 03/05/2007 10:01:54 PM PST by neverdem

There has been a lot of attention paid on the web and on talk radio to this audio clip of Hillary Clinton affecting a Southern accent addressing a rally in Selma, AL yesterday. Not the same rally Barack Obama spoke at, though. A seperate but equal rally, of course.

It appears that Hillary has a problem with getting carried away when addressing an audience. The woman who claims she was "always a Yankee fan" despite growing up in suburban Chicago, is going to have quite a problem, if she campaigns for the next 18 months. Who knows what other accents she will affect? Will her harridan-voice become a familiar tone when audiences wildly applaud and she tries to talk over them?

It is looking to me as though she has a real problem with authenticity.

It is going to take an extremely talented and authentic woman to win the presidency.

Nice ankles and ample breasts are a welcome addition.

This has to be the most embarrasing, disgusting, and bizarre clip I've ever heard of her. What, in the hell, was she trying to do?? Sound black, sound southern, sound like she's had a long hard-suffering life, and she can identify with all of the "lowly" people there?

Seriously, I just can't get over this one, it makes my skin crawl! Is she sane??

Don't forget, when she was carpet-bagging a senate seat in NY, she suddenly "discovered" she was a life-long Yankees fan and part Jewish!

She is not the only one. The crypto-Marxists paraphrase Kinsey and Freud in Manhattan, and do that down home, grits and corn pone jive with black folks. I'd be disgusted if someone insulted my intelligence in this manner. And yes, she is sane in the clinical aspect of the word, but a sociopath in the meantime. Forgive my bluntness.

Well, I actually knew 1... he was here in Japan and actually listened... then we would change the subject to avoid politics. He moved to Canada about 2 years ago (he's American AND black).... He was actually in the top 10 of the most friendly people I ever met.

Other than that... none.... I still have a little hope though :P

My wife has never been as big a Clinton hater as I am and has always indicated that she might vote for Clinton because of her gender. Last night, I played Clinton's speech for her. The reaction was priceless.

The first time she heard it, she started laughing because she thought it was a joke.

When I explained the context of the speech she asked me to play it again. This time she was literally speechless. I played it a third time and she became downright angry and asked how stupid does Clinton think we are.

Only March of 2007, and she is already losing the woman vote.

It was just about the worst, most offensive Southern accent that I have ever heard. And the substance was insulting to any half-way thinking person.

That worst part was that no one present seems to be offended or insulted.

'Rats will want to put this behind them as quickly as possible because it'll hurt her with black voters and just make the woman look ignorant and stupid and ridiculous... Which is why conservative talk show hosts should play the tape at the beginning of their shows, everyday, from now until the election. Don't let her put it behind her!

First: I am hard core right wing. Rush and ann are a little soft on the liberals if you ask me.

But........ The hildebeast lived in Arkansas for many years. (I am a native Texan) The southern accent is something that can come and go depending on the group you are with. When I go home, small town Texas, with my relatives the accent gets thick. When I summer in Vermont, I lose the accent unless they make a big deal of it and then it gets thicker.

In my opinion it is natural to slip into an honestly acquired southern accent in the midst of others who speak that way.

Now, I never thought I'd defend hillary. But, really this is common. Sorry.

hillary's accent aside for the moment, I know what you mean. I generally do not have an accent (many good folks in Jersey have told me as much). I too am from a small Texas town (Seguin). I also lived in Houston for 21 years. I know that if I'm around a group of friends (Texans, particularly east Texans for some reason), I tend to speak with a drawl. And when my grandfathers were alive, I would speak to them in Spanish and with an accent. As for hillary, from the clip I saw and heard, she was quoting James Cleveland and I guess she was trying to impersonate his accent.

That was my first thought, but only for a second. Then I realized I should feel sorry for the black people in the audience.

She insulted them to a degree almost beyond belief. I just am amazed that they have regressed so far from 1964. She talked to them like they were a crowd of house boys and plantation workers and they lapped it up.

Her delivery, along with the speech's content, was the most racist and insulting public spectacle I have seen by a politician in years. How could Hillary (in private) have any respect for a group of people that are so willing to prostitute their dignity and self reliance to such insulting pandering? Of course she doesn't. Nor do any of her ilk.

How do we stop people that are so intent on formenting hatred as these Democrats? How can we when there are so many, so willing to embrace this baldface racism and hatred? I literally had to turn it off so I could finish my lunch it was so sickening.

Her finest moment was when she called a servant a "fu*king Jew bastard" and nobody cared.

Supposedly, the target of her wrath was one Paul Frey, Bill's campaign manager when he ran unsuccessfully for the House of Representatives in 1974. Frey, interestingly, wasn't even Jewish. There is much more about Hillary's finest moment here.
