Bill Clinton: "African Americans watch the same news at night that ordinary Americans do."
WJC Foundation ^

Posted on 09/27/2007 6:47:21 PM PDT by hole_n_one

In a Nov. 1994 interview with the BET's Ed Gordon, Clinton said the following.......

African Americans watch the same news at night that ordinary Americans do.

I must have missed all the newspaper articles by the WA Post/NY Times and the breathless television coverage by CNN's yacking heads back then.

I mean, why would they make this huge deal out of what Bill O'Reilly recently said, but, when it comes to what falls out of Clinton's mouth, it's ignored?

It's not like they have an agenda or anything, right?

It’s real simple. Liberals in the media hate O’Reilly’s guts and would like to torpedo him in any way possible. O’Reilly didn’t make a racist statement, and I wouldn’t take the MSM’s word for it, anyway. They’re losing the ratings war, and they know it. It’s a particularly dirty tactic to try and hang a racism charge on O’Reilly.

The answer is simple: Clinton, as the first black president, like all blacks, according to the liberal explanation, can’t possibly be racist, having none of the reins of power.

Could have been much worse. For example O'Reilly's mother might have been Jewish ~ the antisemites over at the Wash Post would be beating the macaca drums on that one for months and months.

The MSM people are your fundamental poor white trash prayed upon by the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis.

Nothing more to it than that.

I wonder what Paula (legs) Zahn would do? What a conundrum for the left. (BTW O’Reilly is eating their lunch).

Higher expectations for those with standards, whereas those without any standards or character are also not held to any?

IOW, a pig is expected to be in a mud hole, but it is a point-and-laugh matter when the farmer slips, and falls in.

For some reason, I got a mental image of Daryl Gates watching that and doing a spit-take.

That's how liberals think.

I hope he gets lots of airtime this coming year.

scooby dooby
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING...

My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I’m in
I am everyday people, yeah yeah
There is a blue one who can’t accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
And different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha - we got to live together
I am no better and neither are you
We are the same whatever we do

Wasn’t Bill Clinton the first African-American President? He can say those things.

It was on a Nov. 2, 1994 BET broadcast, according to this 2001 FR thread.

Maybe someone can track down the video? It must exist. Just hasn’t gotten on to YouTube..... yet.

In any case, Oreilly has done a very thorough job of being a mouthpiece for black men like Sharpton and Shabazz etc. Sharpton half abandoned him though, from the clips I’ve seen, over these restaurant quotations—despite all the appearances Sharpton has gotten on Bill’s show, and despite the magnificent threatment he gets each and every time he’s on. And despite all of the genuine like Billy has for the man.

That’s because, Mr. Oreilly, Sharpton isn’t your buddy. He’s not your pal.

You can call him a stand up guy or an intellectual all day long. It does not matter. By in large, the black community is loyal solely to itself, and Sharpton’s ‘attack’ on the N-word for example, is solely and specifically to benefit the black community, not you or us, Bill.

It’s not, by any stretch, for the betterment of all of society. I’ve never once heard any black leader talk about leading his people in any direction to benefit society as a whole or, for example, to eradicate the scourge black on white hate crime.

Their actions may incidentally benefit us all, but don’t confuse an incidental result with the intent as Bill O does over and over.

I want to see Bill continue to pucker up and smooch the black community’s behind—better than CNN does. Better than anyone else. I know he can do it and will not disappoint.

And as for the other Bill. Bill C didn’t act surprised. He simply made the statement as fact. He’s too slick to screw up like that...you won’t catch Bill C slipping up like that.
