Skip to comments.Moseley Braun: Clinton 'betrays' blacks, Latinos
Posted on 01/19/2011 5:14:05 AM PST by SJackson
Mayoral candidate Carol Moseley Braun this morning sharply attacked former President Bill Clinton's endorsement of Rahm Emanuel, calling it "a betrayal to the people who were most loyal to him."
"President Bill Clinton does not live or vote in Chicago," said a statement issued by her campaign. "He's an outsider parachuting in to support another outsider. For him to come on the day following Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday to insert himself in the middle of a mayoral race, when the majority of the population and mayoral candidates are African American and Latino, is a betrayal of the people who were most loyal to him. It's a mistake."

I would love to have IQ tested. What an imbecile.
Translation: All other things considered, we love you, Bill. But if it comes down to a contest between you and, say, Amos or Andy, you’re just another cracker.
How can that be? Bill Clinton was the first black president!
Wait...she’s mad at the first black president?! GASP!
Does this mean he doesn’t get to be the ‘first black president’ any more?
How does the rubber of bus tires taste, Bubba?
BTW, where did I put my tub of popcorn...
Carol, here’s a news alert:
Liberals only want to ensure minorities are dependent on them, to ensure their vote.
The Chicago Machine spent much time and money displacing the Mafia.
Do you really think they’re going to let YOU get in the way?
“Her comments echoed earlier remarks by Rep. Danny Davis, a former mayoral candidate, who had contended Clinton risked jeopardizing his standing with the African-American community by endorsing Emanuel, who at one time was a senior adviser to Clinton.”
Bill Clinton should ONLY be endorsing Black candidates if he wants to maintain his standing in the black community.
Mosley is a pure and simple racist.
No need to worry about the dead voting in droves in Chicago anymore, illegal aliens are picking up the pace!
Emmanuel is a despicable character, but as an executive running such a large city, I’d prefer him to Mosley-Braun. Chicago deserves whatever it gets out of this election, and it aiin’t gonna be good. Unfortunately, I have family there who know what being a minority really is in that town.
Yes, and president Obama does not live, work or vote in Virginia; yet he ‘parachuted in’ to the Commonwealth in the closing days of the campaign in 2010 to ‘insert himself’ in to a the governor’s race and at least one congressional race.
What’s the over/under on her score?
65... maybe 70?
When is the last time Democrats supported a black candidate in a state election?
**Whats the over/under on her score?**
sorry... IQ is not able to track NEGATIVE numbers.
Translation: Don’t get in the way of equal opportunity looting. Oppressed Black America should not be thwarted in a legitimate attempt at stealing from the public coffers.
She just doesn’t get it....it is OK for blacks to vote for white liberal Democrats and to sleep with Clinton....and for those favors Democrats have provided many subtle types of reparations. In addition there is a rumor going around that the white liberal Democrat methodology for assigning the quota of black officeholders now includes the number of elected Republican black officeholders.
Can these people even wipe their own nether regions without finding some reason to whine about racism?
In a regular War of the Spoiled-Brat Clintanoids with Bubba in the middle.
Highly entertaining.... except for those poor souls who actually live in Chicago.
So much for the admonition against the emphasis on skin color by Martin Luther King.
Jesse White, Secy of State, now in his third term.
So, what she is saying is that Chicago is a black town and white politicians are not welcome.
Used idiot lamenting the pandering to useful idiots for the benefit of their political rulers. Back to the back of the bus Carol. Do some community organizing for yourself.
RACE-BAITING BLACKS, LIKE SHARPTON, JACKSON, AND MOSELEY BRAUN, BETRAY BLACKS.
She is the mayor they deserve.
It would be such sweet payback for foisting the usurper upon us.
Dear former Senator Moseley-Braun,
I know you’re not too quick on the uptake, so I’ll try to keep this simple:
Blacks are more anti-abortion than whites, but the opinion of radical feminists is more important to Democrats, so don’t expect that to matter;
Blacks are generally pro-military, especially those who have family members who have thrived in military service, but the opinion of far-left pacifists is more important to Democrats, so don’t expect that to matter;
Blacks suffer from lousy urban schools more than any other ethnic group, but the interests of the teacher’s unions are far more important to Democrats, so don’t expect that to matter;
Blacks are more loyal to the donkey party at the ballot box than any other constituency, but when it comes to something like the Chicago mayor’s race, the career of well-connected former Clinton butt-boy is far more important, so don’t expect that to matter either.
In other words, former Senator M-B, If you’re black and you’re a Democrat, get used to the back of the bus, because when push comes to shove, that’s where they expect you to be.
Once again, tribal self-identification trumps all.
What ever happened to Dr. King’s dream of an America where race was a non-issue?
Seems to me it’s become everything to the ruling class.
Good luck, Chicago. You’re going to need it.
I don’t have a problem with what she said. Emanuel’s ties with Chicago are really thin. After counting on A-A support for years, Clinton now flies in to support the Dem establishment candidate. It’s an example of Democrats screwing the people they count on for votes.
That Crackerass Cracker is just a white interloper......
The majority of the citizens of Chicago are black and Hispanic? Who knew?
A few years ago a woman like Miz Braun would have been serving Bill’s coffee. *snort*
heh heh heh.
Chicago deserves to have her as their mayor. I am seriously thinking of contributing to her campaign.
Maybe they'll revoke his First Black President-nes... (can they do that?)
Clinton’s an outsider? He’s not the first black president any more?
Betrayal = when everything isn’t free
The Chicago Donkeys elected Harold Washington, a black lawyer, as Mayor of Chicago (1983-1987). He dies from a massive heart attack as I recall.
Wake me up when these people, (yes the broad brush terminology IS appropriate), consider themselves Americans and not hyphenated-Americans, whose “special needs” have to be addressed as part of a voting payback.
