Hoarse Bill Clinton pissed off at Black Lives Matter protesters

“I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent ’em out into the street to murder other African American children. Maybe you thought they were good citizens. She didn’t. She didn’t. You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter. Tell the truth.”

  1. What a great reframe. If Bill Clinton had been born 20 years later he would have been an R in order to rise through Arkansas politics.

    • 100% correct. clinton’s not a liberal in the modern identity politics sense. i’d put biden in that group along with a senator like joe manchin (but these guys are smart enough to know they need non-whites/lgbtqwy34s/non-christians to win).

      nice reframe from clinton btw.

      • I think Sister Souljah is exactly right. He got a lot of political credibility from that move over 20 years ago, but the Democratic party is no longer catering to voters who might not approvingly at that. This would have played well with Democrats years ago but now it’s a racist heresy. This could cause political problems for Hillary.

      • @Mike,

        Sometimes an incident illustrates how the ground has shifted. This one does. Clinton got lots of cred for the Sister Souljah stuff. (Totally patronizing, IMO, as he said nothing special, but this is blacks, so pointing out the obvious is thought of as great truthtelling.)

        This time he got his head handed to him. Because Revolution.

        I’m an optimist by nature, and I believe that a counter-Revolution is in the cards. The question is, when? I know how, but when. How: when there is a financial collapse. I don’t know when that will be, though. But when it happens, the counter-Revolution will occur. Mark my words.

      • Trouble is, the left never really liked Bill to begin with. He deliberately played to the middle (with the DLC) and they hated him for it. They might see Hillary more as a real leftist but I think she’s muddled middle too but has to play up to the left, what with Bernie biting at her cankles and all.

    • I think if they didn’t care about their behavior and position in society we would have a much more hard headed and realistic discussion of race relations in this country instead of the persecutory delusions we get instead. The reality is that blacks care so much about their condition that the only way they can live with themselves is to adopt a fantasy version of reality. Clinton contradicted that fantasy so he gets ignored.

      Lloyd Llewellyn

      April 8, 2016 at 2:16 pm

      • You’re an interesting commenter, but I think this misses the mark a bit. Not only do they care a lot, but they blacks realize they carry an essence that unfits them for competition in a commercial, technological society, and that said unfitness often marks a path toward jail. So what they want is to be exempted from the criminal law, and that’s what BLM is all about, though they’re not honest enough to say so.

      • Bill Clinton’s appearance probably owes at least as much to genetics and other lifestyle habits (diet, lack of exercise). He has severe cardiovascular disease and underwent quadruple coronary artery bypass surgery in 2004 followed by coronary artery stenting in 2010 after one of his bypass grafts became occluded. And he’s no spring chicken as he will turn 70 this year.

      • It’s funny, but I always kind of liked him. I felt sorry for him being married to Hillary, but then I felt sorry for Hillary being married to Bill. A crazy first family.

        Genetics? Could be, we’ll never know. Genetics can’t totally absolve you of responsibility though.

        Why doesn’t Bill exercise? He could be a monster had he lifted weights. I think he’s got genetics. But, once again like you’ve said, it’s genetics what he does and genetics what he doesn’t. Now I’m confused, cause I worked 15 hours yesterday at $40 an hour cash and it wasn’t worth it. Too little money for such work. Gave my Tajik $300 and took $600 for myself. No, not worth it for this money. To kill myself like this I should have come home with $1,500 not $600. So I can’t think straight after that and and a shwarma.

        I think Trump is in trouble, because he’d lost Colorado and Lion hasn’t blogged about it. Lion is fatigued and doesn’t care. The board doesn’t care. Nobody cares. Bad for Trump.

        2. He used to be a lot heavier. He realized that it’s LOW CLASS to be heavy and now has a weight more appropriate for SWPLs.

        Trump losing Colorado: I never projected him to win any delegates in Colorado, and we know that Cruz has won the inside game, and if there’s a second ballot Cruz is going to win the nomination.

  10. There was a violent crime wave in this country starting in the 1960s. In the 1980s violent crime rates and youth crime rates had been rising steadily for 20 years. Criminologist studying that data project that crime rates would continue rising and predicted the emergence of what they dubbed “super predators”. When HIllary Clinton use the term “super predator” in the 1990s, she was simply using the terminology she heard from criminologist.

    This crime wave bought to office the tough on crime politicians, who passed mandatory minimum sentencing, 3 strikes and a host of other laws that lead to the current mass incarceration. Bill Clinton was president in the 1990s just as crime rates began to decline. At the time nobody had realized that crime rates were declining.

    To keep this in perspective, the crime wave was real. The tough on crime laws were the kind of political response you expect to a crime wave in a democracy.

    Whether these tough on crime laws had anything to do with why crime rates have declined so much since the 1990s is debatable. I tend to believe the tough on crime laws and law enforcement tactics were a minor factor in the decline. I think the role of childhood lead poisoning and the phase out of leaded gasoline are the major under appreciated factors. If that is the case, then we really need to re-look at all those tough on crime laws.

    • ROFL. There was plenty more childhood “lead poisoning” in the 30’s as well as leaded gasoline, yet crime was really low. I wonder why that was? What could the major factor(s) be? Then again, there was some “lead poisoning” in Wilkinsburg, PA quite recently…

      • “ROFL. There was plenty more childhood “lead poisoning” in the 30’s as well as leaded gasoline, yet crime was really low. I wonder why that was?”

        Lead poisoning between birth and about 6 years old is known to lower IQ and cause impulse control behavior problems. In older people the effects are not as serious, at least the effect has never been found in studies. The impulse control problems do not generally result in violent crime until 15 to 20 years later.

        Leaded gasoline started to be used in the 1930s, but there were relatively few cars on the road and not everyone used leaded gasoline. You would not expect to see the effect on crime from leaded gasoline in the 1930s until the 1950s. Use of leaded gasoline grew rapidly during the 1940s and 1950s.

        The use of leaded gasoline began to decline in the 1970s because of catalytic converters, but the decline in crime rates did not start until the 1990s.

        There is some childhood lead poisoning cause by paint flakes, water and other issues, but those are mostly isolated cases. The Leaded gasoline caused poisoning was much more wide spread, especially in urban areas.

    • “I think the role of childhood lead poisoning and the phase out of leaded gasoline are the major under appreciated factors.”

      Incorrect. Crime soared among all cohorts simultaneously, young and old. If it was lead, crime would have soared in particular cohorts. HBD aware people usually know that the lead theory of crime is just a liberal rationalization to explain high levels of crime by blacks.

      “If that is the case, then we really need to re-look at all those tough on crime laws.”

      We did. The already relaxed law enforcement in the laboratories of Baltimore, St. Louis and Chicago. Crime has soared exactly like I would expect.

      As a reactionary, I think it would be good to “re-look at all those tough on crime laws” and let lots of really bad criminals roam the streets, because I think the nation is begging for another lesson. I also think it would be good if Bernie got a chance to implement his economic policies, for the same reason.

      • “Incorrect. Crime soared among all cohorts simultaneously, young and old. If it was lead, crime would have soared in particular cohorts. HBD aware people usually know that the lead theory of crime is just a liberal rationalization to explain high levels of crime by blacks.”

        I’m not sure what cohort data you are talking about.

        There is a lot of data showing the relationship between the amount of gasoline lead released into the air and crime rates delayed by around 20 years. It is not just in the USA. The same effect has been found in studies of data from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Finland, France, Italy, New Zealand and West Germany. This is even though these countries phased out the use of leaded gasoline at different times.

        The pase out of leaded gasoline use was not uniform across the USA either. It was phased out in some states earlier than others. In states where it was phased out earlier, the decline in crime rates started earlier.

        But it is not just these relationships. There are clinical studies of the effect of childhood lead poisoning. It has been shown to lower IQ. It has been shown to reduce impulse control.

        I’m certainly not claiming that leaded gasoline is responsible for all crime. This also does not preclude genetic effects on behavior. There are certainly genes that are associated with reduced impulse control, but I don’t think those genes can explain why there was a violent crime wave starting in the 1960s and why crime rates started to decline in the 1990s.

        The problem of childhood lead poisoning is not completely behind us. The Flint water crises clearly indicates we have a problem with lead in water pipes, but that is not the most significant problem. (Side note: the blood lead levels reported for children in Flint while higher than before the switch of water sources are not as high as in the 1970s). Crumbling lead paint is still a big issue, but the bigger problem is all the lead in the soil caused by past use the use of leaded gasoline.

      • There was probably a correlation between states where lead was phased out and places where abortion was legalized (because liberal states did both first), and as we know abortion reduces crime by reducing the number of 20-year-old poor people 20 years in the future. And Roe v. Wade happened the SAME YEAR, 1973, that the EPA ruled that leaded gas would be phased out.

        It is reasonable to assume that reducing the population of poor young people would reduce crime rates, however birth control is much more important than abortion. Providing low cost for free birth control to poor women is more effective. I doubt that this is actually the cause of the decline, because the percentage of poor young people has not really declined. The middle class have reduced family size just as much or even more than poor families, so the percentage of young people that are poor has not declined much.

    Bill Clinton was a good president, in the conservative sense. He fought against welfare abuse and crime. He balanced budgets. He sought compromise. He was psychologically healthy.

    The new left is out of its mind, from open borders madness to trying to destroy anyone who is honest about biology to standing FOR criminals to courting communism.

    Hillary was able to skate so far, but the insane, ever-leftward mob is on to her. They don’t want stability, or civilization or national success particularly. They don’t even really care if Obamacare is succeeding or not. Like junkies, they need another high from a new leftward push. That is all there is.

      • “Bill Clinton was force to move to the right because of a conservative congress. He wanted to be a left-leaning socialist, but lost the house when he tried that”

        Presumably America then was generally a more conservative society than now. In ’92 the elderly generation would have been from World War Two, and the middle-aged from the generation of Vietnam. There were lots of cultural conservatives who grew up in a time when such beliefs were not considered shameful. I doubt Bruce Springsteen would have picked the right of weird men to use women’s toilets as an issue back in the early 1990’s. People would have stopped buying his records (rightly in my opinion). America still had a large and more confident religious right and fewer immigrants too.

        I’ve seen comments recently extolling Clinton as a more ‘moderate’ president, but who can honestly say what he truly was, when in reality he must have been constrained by the more conservative electorate. The steady drip-drip of demographic change and aggressive promotion of a liberal agenda in the media makes America a very different places to the one Clinton inherited.

        Western societies now are like those people that have had a stroke or brain injury and one hemisphere of their brain is damaged. With the ‘conservative hemisphere’ of the brain removed the ‘liberal hemisphere’ runs rampant and you have the political equivalent of left-sided denial with regards to reality.
