Hillary Clinton and her husband have done very well with the “black vote” in the past, and she has declared herself a champion of civil rights. We have all learned that what Hillary says and what she means are two different things.
In a recent interview, a well-known Ku Klux Klan leader expressed his support for Hillary Clinton and said that the KKK had endorsed Hillary as their candidate and they have raised thousands of dollars for her campaign.
Clinton and her campaign are denying the claims by the KKK leader, but that is because she is a champion of civil rights, correct?
When looking back at Hillary’s past and her connections with the KKK there are some very disturbing connections.
First there is the longtime mentor to the Clintons, James William Fulbright, who has a history of being a racist and a Klansmen. James invested in Clinton’s business dealings before president.
In 2002 the Clintons honored James William Fulbright and gave him a 7-foot statue to remember all his great service. Bill spoke at the Fulbright Association and even won the Fulbright Prize. The longtime racist and KKK member was pretty close to the Clintons.
Then there is Senator Robert C. Byrd from West Virginia. Here is a man that was not only a KKK member but ran his local chapter. Once he decided to seek political office then he decided to downplay his role in the KKK.
Hillary and Byrd were very close and she considered him a mentor. Here is what she said after his death.
Those are her known connections to some of the more known KKK members in our society, and you can hear it from her own mouth.
There is also the whole “super predators” quote from the 90’s but things have not changed. In a recent fundraiser, she was part of a very poor racist joke about “colored people time”.
This was just a couple of weeks ago.
She can call Donald Trump a racist and she can lie about her connections, but Hillary has a past of racist connections and hateful remarks.
Her history stands in stark contrast to that of her Democratic opponent Bernie Sanders, who has a lifetime of standing up for black voters. He was even arrested during the civil rights movement for standing up for the minority group.
Hillary has a lot of problems including her criminal FBI investigation and her cough, but it’s her ties to racists and bigotry that should concern most people.
What do you think? Is Hillary a champion of civil rights or is she a closet racist?
