Hillary and the Black Panthers: The Real Story
I can’t take it anymore. If one more person sends me that e-mail about Hillary and the Black Panthers, I’ll have to be dragged away screaming in a straitjacket.
You know the e-mail I’m talking about. It accuses Hillary of helping the Black Panthers get away with torture and murder during the early 1970s. With the 2004 presidential race drawing near, the spam mills are creaking to life, flooding the Internet once more with this agitprop classic.
Unfortunately, the e-mail mingles good information with bad, sowing more confusion than enlightenment. Some versions, for instance, carry the byline of radio talk jock Paul Harvey, who says he did not write it. Such misrepresentations help Hillary defenders dismiss the e-mail as a hoax.
The story is no hoax, though. Its basic elements can be found in respected Hillary biographies and exposes such as Barbara Olsons “Hell to Pay,” David Brock’s “The Seduction of Hillary Rodham,” Joyce Milton’s “The First Partner” and Carl Limbacher’s “Hillary’s Scheme.”
Here are the facts.
In May 1969, fishermen discovered the body of Black Panther Alex Rackley floating in Connecticut’s Coginchaug River. Rackleys captors had clubbed him, burned him with cigarettes, scalded him with boiling water and stabbed him with an ice pick before finally shooting him in the head.
New Haven detectives learned that the Panthers suspected Rackley of being a police informer. Panther enforcers had tied him to a chair and tortured him for hours. Police arrested eight Panthers and later extradited Panther leader Bobby Seale from California, after a witness accused Seale of ordering Rackley’s death.
Campus radicals supported the Panthers. They organized mass protests in support of the so-called “New Haven Nine.” Hillary was right in the thick of it.
By the time she entered Yale Law School in 1969, Hillary was already a radical celebrity on campus. Life magazine had featured Hillary in a piece titled, “The Class of ‘69,” which showcased three student activists whom Lifes editors deemed the best and brightest of the year. A line Hillary used in her Wellesley College commencement speech appeared under her photo: “Protest is an attempt to forge an identity.”
At Yale, Hillary helped edit the Yale Review of Law and Social Action a left-wing journal which promoted cop-killing and featured cartoons of pig-faced police.
A series of hard-Left mentors introduced Hillary to the brass-knuckle realities of revolutionary activism. As a Wellesley undergraduate, she met and interviewed radical organizer Saul Alinsky, whose Machiavellian tactics she admired. Hillary’s senior thesis supported Alinsky’s call for class warfare.
At Yale, Hillary found a new Svengali in the form of left-wing law professor Thomas Emerson, known around campus as “Tommy the Commie.” Emerson recruited Hillary and other students to help monitor the trial of the New Haven Nine for civil rights violations. Hillary took charge of the operation, scheduling the students in shifts, so that student monitors would always be present in the courtroom. She befriended and worked closely with Panther lawyer Charles Garry.
Some believe that the enormous pressure exerted by the Left helped ensure light sentences for the New Haven Nine. Whether or not this is true, the punishments were mild.
“Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977,” reports John McCaslin in the Washington Times. “The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley’s torture, got elected to a California school board.”
Hillarys defenders argue that she played no “significant” role in the New Haven Nines defense. This is semantic hairsplitting. Obviously, Hillary was less “significant” than Charles Garry or “Tommy the Commie” Emerson. But Hillary served as a trusted lieutenant to these movers and shakers. Moreover, she had a national profile as a campus activist. Hillary was no rank-and-file student protester, as her apologists claim.
Indeed, Hillary’s work for the Panthers won her a summer internship at the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft in 1972. A hardline Stalinist, Treuhaft had quit the Communist Party in 1958 only because it was losing members and no longer provided a good platform for his activism. “Treuhaft is a man who dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB,” notes historian Stephen Schwartz.
The defense of the New Haven Nine marked Hillary’s initiation into the sinister underworld of the hard-core, revolutionary Left. To my knowledge, Hillary has never publicly renounced nor apologized for her role in that movement.
What is Hillary Clinton afraid of? The truth.
Sunlight, a Cross, Holy Water, wooden stakes...
That article must be the longest one I have seen yet. I can’t read that.
Hillary is afraid of Bill, not Billy Carter, getting caught again.
an inevitable next step after the redemption of her past few years as a well-regarded, if not quite historic, Secretary of State...”
Utter delusion. Absolute and utter. And then these asses prattle on about how the press has assisted the Right Wing in ripping into poor little Hil. No joke, they’re totally outside of Reality.
she’s deathly afraid of her record, for one thing...
But to this day shes surrounded herself with media conspiracy theorists who remain some of her favorite confidants, urged wealthy allies to bankroll independent organizations tasked with knee-capping reporters perceived as unfriendly, withdrawn into a gilded shell when attacked and rolled her eyes at several generations of aides who suggested she reach out to journalists rather than just disdaining them. Not even being nice to her in print has been a guarantor of access; reporters likely to write positive stories have been screened as ruthlessly as perceived enemies, dismissed as time-sucking sycophants or pretend-friends.
No mention of Benghazi?
Well, if it weren’t for the press, no one would have heard of Hillary. She has never accomplished anything in her entire life, beyond corruption, murders, and lies. Yet everyone seems to think that she’s the most famous, top-ranking woman in the whole world.
Sure, the bad stuff keeps leaking out, but the press has worked extremely hard to cover for her, and to pretend that she is a highly accomplished woman. Any time she wants to appear on a TV show, it’s hers to ask for. No one could count the number of magazine covers she has been on over the years. And in any list of famous women, she is always placed at the top.
But I think her sycophants in the media are kind of wondering. If she runs for President, can they really succeed in covering all this stuff up? Or will the whole house of cards collapse. It’s not just one secret. It’s virtually everything in her entire life.
Quite a recommendation! She has continued on that path now for 40 years! One has, at least, to give her credit for perseverance.
I'm thinking a mirror would scare the snot out of her.
She wants to be president; she doesnt want to run for president, another Clinton veteran told us. The worst part of running for president for her, clearly, is dealing with the press.
Over the 25 years Hillary Clinton has spent in the national spotlight...
And this is ignoring the negatives many are just itching to bring to the public’s attention if she actually runs.
She will not run.
She did bail when she heard the mother of one of the Benghazi victims was going to be at the venue where Hillary was to speak. We need to clone that woman.
I agree with you that she will not run. In spite of all the war on women BS, the country is not up to another affirmative action hire for president, after seeing how inept the last one was. The HildaBeast, in spite of her desire to be president, will use the granny excuse not to run.
“the subject of dozens of over-hyped or downright fictional stories and books alleging, among other things, that she is a lesbian, a Black Widow killer who offed Vincent Foster then led an unprecedented coverup, a pathological liar, a real estate swindler, a Commie, a harridan.”
Over-hyped indeed! She’s probably bi-sexual.
