Clinton's Racist Roots

Clinton's Racist Roots

he really troubling thing about this Bill Clinton speech at Georgetown University - in which he said Americans have some responsibility for the September 11th attacks - is that I have no clue what his purpose is. You could say that he's legacy building or shining the light of attention on himself or being provocative or what have you. But I think it really just proves the guy is a liberal. I think this really just indicates what he actually thinks of this country. To him, this country is full of faults - and everyone today is guilty for the sins of slavery and even the Crusades. He thinks that this country is the reason for much of the suffering and pain that people in the world experience today.

Now, I want to address something key about what Bill Clinton said during his speech, because he is not and has never been a great champion of civil rights. In fact - and this is something you never, ever hear about - the young Clinton studied at the knee of well-known segregationists. His political career in Arkansas demonstrates a complete lack of understanding and sensitivity about those people with whom he now claims to sympathize.



You want some hypocrisy? Let me give it to you. I've said it before, and it's appropriate to say it now as well. Bill Clinton's political mentors in Arkansas were segregationists! That means they didn't want white people and black people living together. They were active members of the stay-in-the-back-of-the-bus crowd. J. William Fulbright, the late Arkansas senator, and the Arkansas governor Orville Faubus, were among them. Those were the men Clinton idolized. Those were his mentors. Fulbright even hired Bill Clinton at one point.

These were the men Clinton hung around, tried to learn from - and they were passionate, committed segregationists. Think about what this means: Had they lived during the time of the founding, Bill Clinton's idols would have been enthusiastic slaveholders. Had they lived at the time of the Civil War, they would have fought and killed for the right to keep Africans enslaved. These are Bill Clinton's idols! These are the guys that Bill Clinton is running around taking leadership ideas from. These are the men that Clinton reached out to in order to start his political career.

Slavery Was Not Enshrined In Our Constitution!

Slavery is a chapter in American history that never seems to get mentioned by those who question the very essence of this country and its righteousness. The framers who wrote and adopted our Constitution understood that they couldn't resolve the slavery issue at the time. But they didn't ignore the issue. In fact, they punished slave states by limiting their representation in the House of Representatives. That's why slaves were counted as three-fifths a person for purposes of representation. That's why we fought the bloodiest war in our nation's history to end slavery about four score and seven years later.

It was not because the majority of the framers thought they were property. It was because they didn't want southern states to have it both ways, claiming they could count their slaves as people when it meant getting a bigger voice in government, but not in their day-to-day lives. An amendment process was put in place to right wrongs like slavery which needed fixing. That amendment process was used after the civil war to address or correct issues that could not be revolved during the Constitutional Convention.

In fact, amendments were adopted after the Civil War that dealt directly with the issue of slavery. This, too, is part of our history, and to ignore it is to distort our founding and to distort our history. Provisions were put in place to deal with slavery! It wasn't thought to be a great institution worthy of preservation. If it were, don't you think they'd have written a guarantee of slavery into the Constitution? Do you think Thomas Jefferson wrote the words "all men are created equal" without knowing it's full meaning?

Clinton's Mentors Were Racists and Segregationists


Now, if we judge Clinton as he would have us judge the history of America, we would look at his career through his association with outspoken and powerful racists and look no further. Bill Clinton has a history of association, respect for, and mentorship with powerful racists and segregationists! Yet he stands up and gives that speech. It wouldn't matter what he said or did as governor or president. All that would tell us about the measure of the man is that he embraced these segregationists rather than speak out against them.

But I am willing to look beyond that for a moment, and examine his presidency. And when I do that, I find a man who did nothing to improve race relations in this country. I find a guy who hailed those who promoted this notion of segregation. Clinton promoted discord between the races. This silly business about claiming he saw church burnings in his home state when it's proved that no such attacks ever, ever occurred prove he's trying to stir up racial hatred. He and his party used race to try to divide this country for crass political purposes.

So to come out and give this speech yesterday is the height of selfishness. This is a pathetic man screaming, "Don't forget me! Don't forget me! Don't forget me." We would love to find a way to.

There is also the dirty little secret that the Senator from the Great State of Arkansas,
J. William Fulbright, was a socialist, if not a closet communist. Clinton did not fall far from this tree (Fulbright) in many ways.

Slavery was implicitly allowed by our Constitution. How could the 3/5ths compromise be legitimate if slavery wasn't?

Slavery may have been tacitly tolerated in the Constitution, but the 3/5ths rule you cite is an anti-slavery, not pro-slavery, provision. The slave states wanted each slave to count as 5/5ths of a person toward the census. The fact that they counted for far less is an attack on the institution of slavery, not an attack on the merit of the blacks who were enslaved.

Slaves were counted as 3/5ths of a person for the express purpose of diluting the strength of the south in the House of Representatives. Period.

Let's not forget the great "conscious of the Senate" who gave Bubba his big pass during the Impeachment trial: Grand Wizard Bobby Byrd of West VA.

Clinton is the embodiment of hypocrisy in every way. I work with a lady whose Arkansas roots go way back and she swears that Clinton himself has had to work at overcoming his own "tainted" black blood. I don't know how true it is, but when she talks about this, you get the very definite feeling that she knows something she isn't telling. Not that it matters in the overall scheme of things, but if true, he has gone to incredible lengths to bury it. If he is such a champion of the poor oppressed black man, I would think it something he would be proud of.

Clinton even uses the same language as Byrd does:

Trooper: Clinton Called Black People He Didn’t Like "N--gers"

Clinton could call Jesse Jack@$$ a 'nigger' in front of the National Press Club and still get a pass!

Limbaugh played a recent tape of Roger Clinton where the 'N' word flowed as free as the dope they were smoking!

Perhaps you don't like seeing Clinton being kicked around for no good reason.

Well, here's a reason

Letter of Thank You to ex President Bill Clinton

Dear Mr. Ex-President:

I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, "Thank me, I voted for Clinton-Gore." So, I sat down and reflected on that, and I am sending my "Thank you" for what you have done, . . . specifically:

1. Thank you for introducing us to Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky (WH intern), Juanita Broaddrick (campaign worker), Dolly Kyle Browning (high school classmate), Beth Gladden Coulson (Ark. Court of Appeals judge), Sherrie Densuk (WH intern/nutcase), Robyn Dickey ("White House Director of Special Projects and Special Needs" I Kid You Not), Elizabeth Ward Gracen (Miss America - fled country), Connie Hamzy (yes, THAT "sweet, sweet Connie" of Grand Funk fame), Marilyn Jo Jenkins (Ark. friend), Shelia Lawrence (Arlingtongate widow), Sally Perdue (Miss Arkansas), Debra Schiff (campaign plane stewardess hired at White House), Shelia Swatzyna (campaign plane stewardess), Kathleen Willey (White House volunteer), Cristy Zercher (campaign plane stewardess), ect.... Did I leave anyone out?

2. Thank you for teaching my 8 year old about oral sex. I had really planned to wait until they were older to discuss it with them, but now they know more about it than I did as a senior in college.

3. Thank you for showing us that sexual harassment in the work place (especially the White House) and on the job is OK, and all you have to know is what the meaning of "is" is. It really is great to know that certain sexual acts are not sex, and one person may have sex while the other one involved does NOT have sex.

4. Thank you for reintroducing the concept of impeachment to a new generation and demonstrating that the ridiculous plot of the movie "Wag the Dog" could be plausible after all.

5. Thanks for making Jimmy Carter look competent, Gerald Ford look graceful, Richard Nixon look honest, Lyndon Johnson look truthful, and John Kennedy look moral.

6. Thank you for the 73 House and Senate witnesses who have pled the 5th Amendment and 17 witnesses who have fled the country to avoid testifying about Democratic campaign fund raising.

7. Thank you, for the 19 charges, 8 convictions, and 4 imprisonment's from the Whitewater "mess" and the 55 criminal charges and 32 criminal convictions (so far) in the other "Clinton" scandals.

8. Thanks also for reducing our military by half, "gutting" much of our foreign policy, and flying all over the world on "vacations" carefully disguised as necessary trips.

9. Thank you, also, for "finding" millions of dollars-I really didn't need it in the first place, and I can't think of a more well deserving group of recipients for my hard-earned dollars than jet fuel for all of your globe-trotting. I understand you; the family and your cronies have logged in more time aboard Air Force One than any other administration.

10. Now that you've left the White House, thanks for the 140 pardons of convicted felons and indicted felons-in-exile. We will love to have them rejoin society.

11. Thanks also for removing the White House silverware, I'm sure that Laura Bush didn't like the pattern anyway. Also, enjoy the housewarming gifts you've received from your "friends."

12. Thanks to you and your staff in the West Wing of the White House for vandalizing and destroying government property on the way out. I also appreciate removing all of that excess weight (China, silverware, linen, towels, ash trays, soap, pens, magnetic compass, flight manuals, etc.) out of Air Force 1. The weight savings means burning less fuel, thus less tax dollars spent on jet fuel, thank you!

13. Thank for letting your nick names be used by children all across America: "Billy Blowjob", "BillieBlobSlick" and many more.

14. And finally, please ensure that Hillary enjoys the $8 million dollar advance for her upcoming "tell-all" book and you, Bill, the $5 million advance for your memoirs. Who says crime doesn't pay!

Why shouldn't Americans know the real truth? What a guy!! If you agree that the American public must be made aware of these fact, pass this on. God bless America and THANK YOU (once again) for spending my taxes so wisely and frugally.

SINCERELY,

A US Citizen

It's pathetic that everytime a republican shows ignorance, like Lott, we have to drag out Clinton in an attempt to redirect to stupidometer.

At least the Clintons don't have dozens and dozens of offsprings to take the future reins like the Kennedys. :-)

It's not just Clinton of course, the Dems are rife with racist tendencies. But he's still the leader of their party, unlike Lott. And his Jew-hating wife is their future presidential nominee.

Absolute PROOF that Clinton is a racist, is demonstrated in his directing that the pre-existing building on the Arkansas presidential lie-brary property, a historical building honoring the Black underground railroad, not just be moved out of the way, but be completely torn down, to make way for his pile of crap.

Our first Black president? I don't think so, at all!

Don't forget about the SS men who conceived children with unmarried German Women to give Hitler a generation of perfect children...

Those children should be in their 50's or more...

Surely some of them would be willing to step in as Offspring...for the cause!
