This is a NY Post article. Are you suggesting it is inappropriate to note its publication and comment on it?
What a complete and utter crock.
Clinton’s racism towards blacks is fair game for exposure. He panders to them for their votes, yet mocks them behind their backs for their color. Are you an apologist for KKK Byrd and the crossburnings he/his recruits attended, too?
So why do it? Bill would never do it for you.
I don’t require a quid pro quo from someone if I decide to say I think an attack on them is wrong. Why would I even expect Clinton to do anything for me? In fact the most shameful thing to me about my 20 years of service in the military is that it’s his signature on my retirement certificate. Nevertheless, I think this is a little over the top.
That’s stupid. His grandmother gave him the cards and he used one to send to her to “prove he used it”. That’s rather endearing, not racist.
Lots of people put on a disgusting sweater or put out a atrotious knick-knack received as a gift, when we know the gift giver is likely to see it being used.
Grasping at straws.
I’m white and Irish. That could just as easily be me on a hot summer day. Big deal.
The Clinton presidential library will purchase the postcard . . . with money donated by China . . . and it will never be seen again.
Encouraging his grandmother’s racism towards blacks is endearing? You’re joking, right?
What if she had sent him a cross to burn? Would that be endearing, too?
Calling that racist IS racist.
Apparently not so over the top that an online auction house would refuse to sell the postcard.
Yeah, making a mountain of this is a reach but, then, so were speeches from the floor of the Senate condemning a willfully misunderstood comment about “phony soldiers”.
(btw, thanks for your service to our country).
Last year my local paper published a photo of a little black girl eating a huge piece of watermelon on a hot summer day. It created a firestorm of LTTE complaining about how racist that was.
One could say the same thing if he ate Aunt Jemima pancakes in 1966. Just about as much validity.
BTW, how many of us ate Aunt Jemima pancakes in the day when the box looked like this?
If this were a prominant Republican candidate do you think the media would care?
So why doesn't Bubba have the 'nads to just come out and say that. That's the story to my mind, his refusal so far to comment. Gutless wonder. The Toons're busy conducting a focus group no doubt, or are just planning on ignoring the story because they know that the MSM won't touch it.
This is one time I side with Clintoon.
No. I thought afterwards my comments might be taken that way. Absolutely appropriate to post (as if my judgement matters anyway). I was just agreeing with others the first time this was posted that it is a far stretch and not worthy of us (conservatives in general, freepers in particular).
Sorry for any misunderstanding.
