Only Hillary can end racism!

I was just reading this op-ed in USA Today from February, and I found it amusing.

The New York Times reported that Clinton’s flailing campaign is trying out a new line: that Sanders is a “one-note” candidate who is captive to an obsession with Wall Street and campaign spending. Clinton is determined to prove that Sanders is not ready for office, but that she is. “If we broke up the big banks tomorrow,” Clinton asked a group of union members, “would that end racism? Would that end sexism? Would that end discrimination against the LGBT community?”

Just so we’re clear: Sanders is an unserious pie-in-the-sky candidate because he wants to rein in campaign spending and institute a health care system that is commonplace in Europe. Clinton, on the other hand, will eradicate sexism and racism in America. Who’s the dreamer here?

In other campaign news, Kirstie Allie endorses Trump!

  3. The Hillary campaign has been so cynical, so transparent and condescending, that I honestly think she is beatable if the Republicans could get out of their own way for once (they can’t).

    • It’s so transparent it might fade away any second. Trump will schlong Clinton with gusto, but the GOPe find that problematic.

  4. Just highlights how stupid Hillary Thinks women are. Here they are with 3 Supreme Court justices, a majority of the California Supreme Court, 2 recent Secretaries of State, a National Security advisor, both California senators for the last 20 years, a recent head of Homeland Security, the chief of the most powerful federal agency (EPA), half the lawyers and doctors in the country, and she still feels she can sell them on victimhood. And she’probably right!


    April 10, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    • Yes, Mrs. B.J. Clinton is correct: Women are keenly aware of status differentials, and ours is a degenerate civilization that gives highest status to whomever accumulates the greatest number of Pokémon victim points.


      April 11, 2016 at 11:54 am

      • I literally just noticed that President Clinton’s initials are BJ. LOL

        Maybe because people only use Jefferson when calling him William.


        April 12, 2016 at 9:15 am

    • Women ARE that stupid, solipsistic, and disloyal. Hillary is right to bank on this.


      April 11, 2016 at 2:33 pm

    • You can easily make the case that women have, on average, a higher quality of life than men by nearly any reasonable standard. Looking at elite positions in government is not the way to make that argument.

  5. Lion, any thoughts on Cruz’s victory in Colorado?


    April 10, 2016 at 11:38 pm

    • The thoughts have to begin and end with how funny it is Trump claims that he will hire the best people and how great he is at dealz and yet is continually getting out smarted and out hustled by Cruz.

      It will be great to see Cruz turn his guns on the SS Hillary in the general.

      • Cruz did not out-smart him nor did he have to. Anyone who is in the runners-up position of the delegate count would have been awarded the victory by the anti-Trump establishment. Voting not required.


        April 11, 2016 at 6:37 pm

      • Trump didn’t read the GOP nomination rules of each state, and he didn’t hire somebody who had read the rules for each state. Despite having a huge staff and money to hire a still huger staff, he is winging the whole thing and then, when he loses, whining like a child that it isn’t fair.


        April 11, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      • *IF* Cruz gets the nom, and I’m not sure that he will, he will lose to Hillary so badly it will be the stuff of legends. Double digit loss, taking the Senate with him and 20 House seats.

        April 11, 2016 at 7:27 pm

      • Are you guys going to say the same thing when they anoint Paul Ryan with the same technique? That Cruz should’ve understood “da rulez”?

  6. If racism is your top concern, why not vote for the candidate endorsed by Eric Garner’s daughter?:

  7. Clinton will end racism and sexism like Obama has racially healed the country.

    Cynical politico posturing aside, a general principle of life is that a government program set up to address a problem will never solve that problem.


    April 11, 2016 at 3:48 am

    • Not nearly cynical enough.

      A govt. program is set up to CREATE or MAKE WORSE a problem so that government can make itself bigger in order to “solve/mediate” the problem; ie CONTROL the people.



      April 11, 2016 at 2:32 pm

  8. Clinton, on the other hand, will eradicate sexism and racism in America.

    But I thought America’s Half-Blood Prince Obama was going to do that? If he can’t do it, what chance does bitter scolding crone Hillary have?


    April 11, 2016 at 9:18 am

    • Listening to Mrs. B.J. Shrillary screech and bellow for 0 to 8 years (depending on when she finally strokes out), along with her anti-White, misanthropic, heterophobic policies, would increase men’s ill-feeling toward women. Since Whites pay almost all taxes, why hasn’t the Supreme Kourt declared taxation discriminatory against Whites based on disparate impact? Why does the concept of disparate impact apply only to swarthies and women?



      April 11, 2016 at 12:02 pm

    • But I thought America’s Half-Blood Prince Obama was going to do that?

      And before him Jesus.

      You gotta keep trying.

  9. Lion, I read something very interesting on Ann Althouse’s blog. She’s a middle of the road Republican. She’s very bright. She welcomes a brokered convention in which Paul Ryan is anointed the nominee. This wing of the Republican party is using Cruz as the battering ram against Trump.

    She says these voters wouldn’t mind at all if the convention were brokered & Ryan installed as the nominee. They know what is going on and would feel vindicated — her words — not dissed. You should pay more attention to ppl like her and not to the alt-right, which is an incestuous bunch of freaks.


    April 11, 2016 at 9:54 am

    • This wing of the Republican party is using Cruz as the battering ram against Trump.

      Trump could and should immediately destroy Cruz’s campaign by releasing the same opposition research that Rubio’s campaign, as well as a number of others, had about Cruz’s philandering.

      But so far their holding back. Why…

    • Althouse is no Republican; she voted for Obama.


      April 11, 2016 at 7:26 pm

    • Ann Althouse’s blog. She’s a middle of the road Republican. She’s very bright. She welcomes a brokered convention in which Paul Ryan is anointed the nominee.

      No she isn’t. She’s a 60+ old lefty turned liberal turned opportunistic blogger who “flirts” with Republicans.

      She voted Jesse Jackson in 88 and Obama in 08.

      She also seems to have a “hometown” crush on Scott Walker and Paul Ryan. This despite the fact she is pro choice and they are against abortion even in cases of rape or incest.

      She has never blogged any opposition to immigration, corporate trade deals and she was actually pro Bush in 2004 despite being for Gore in 00. She was pro Iraq war.

      So on three key Trump issues – immigration, trade and foreign invasion/intervention she is anti Trump and pro establishment GOP/Dem.

      And so is her boy Paul Ryan.

  11. If we gave every American a guaranteed income of $100,000 per year, would that cure cancer?!!!

    If we forced banks to give unoccupied houses to the homeless, would more people watch women’s basketball??!!!!

    If we declared car ownership a fundamental human right, how would that bring back the passenger pigeon????!!!!!!

    Etc, etc, etc. Any idiot could make non-sequiturs like this all day long.

  13. “If we broke up the big banks tomorrow,” Clinton asked a group of union members, “would that end racism? Would that end sexism? Would that end discrimination against the LGBT community?”

    David Cole over at Taki has an interesting take on this although he doesnt mention Hillary’s quote:


    April 11, 2016 at 4:57 pm

  14. “Racially Charged Joke by Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio Leaves Some Cringing”

    “In less than three minutes, a comedy routine between Hillary Clinton and Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York managed to cause a storm of controversy over a racially charged joke.

    It happened on Saturday night when Mrs. Clinton made a surprise visit to the Inner Circle dinner, an annual black-tie event that brings together the city’s press corps, lobbyists and lawmakers. She strode onstage with Mr. de Blasio and Leslie Odom Jr., the actor who plays Aaron Burr in the hit musical “Hamilton.”

    “Thanks for the endorsement, Bill,” Mrs. Clinton said to Mr. de Blasio, a former aide to Mrs. Clinton when she was a senator from New York who nonetheless dallied in supporting her. “Took you long enough.”

    “Sorry, Hillary,” Mr. de Blasio said. “I was running on C.P. time,” a reference to the stereotype “Colored People Time,” which drew some cringes from the audience.

    Mr. Odom, who is black and appeared to be in on the joke, interrupted: “That’s not — I don’t like jokes like that, Bill.”

    Mrs. Clinton jumped in. “Cautious politician time. I’ve been there,” she said.

    The joke quickly made its way around social media as both Mrs. Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders work to woo black voters ahead of the April 19 primary in New York. Both Mr. de Blasio and Mrs. Clinton have a reputation for running late, but the expression struck some as inappropriate.”

    • Oh, okay, that’s halfway sorta funny. No wonder people don’t like it. Funny jokes are worse. The cultural left’s motto should be “It’s Not Funny!”

      P.S. Except for the name “Drumpf”. Now that’s comedy!

    • De Blasio is married to a black lesbian, and has black kids? Hasn’t he earned the right to joke about black people like black people?

  16. Lion: who would lose worse, Cruz or Ryan?

    Otis the Sweaty

    April 12, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    • If Cruz is nominated, a lot of pissed off Trump supporters might not vote.
      If Ryan is nominated, a lot of pissed off Trump and Cruz supporters might not vote. On the other hand, Paul Ryan has more appeal to swing voters and independents than Cruz.

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      April 12, 2016 at 12:15 pm

      • so what do you think?

        Nominating Ryan is my dream scenario. It would destroy the GOP worse than any other possibility. I could seriously see Ryan coming in with under 40% of the popular vote. A lot of Cruz supporters also hate immigrants.

        Otis the Sweaty

        April 12, 2016 at 12:26 pm

      • I suppose it’s also possible that some swing voters and independents might vote for Cruz because he’s anti-immigration (ignoring that he was pro-immigration before Trump) and those same voters might not vote for Ryan. But I don’t really foresee either of those two winning against a Democrat.

        Why lose with Ryan when you can win with Trump?

  18. OT:

    Headline: “This 25-Year-Old Is Turning a Profit Selling Pencils”

    Money quote: “Weaver grew up in a small town in Ohio, went on to study art at London’s Goldsmiths, and traveled the world picking up new pencils along the way (such as a mint green set of three she acquired in Japan, her favorite at the moment). She risked personal funds of $80,000 to build up inventory, create the online store, and pay advance rent. Weaver launched the website in November 2014, found a retail space of roughly 200 square feet renting for $1,900 a month, and opened the doors in March of last year.”

    Sounds like another rich kid self-actualizing. I love how vague the story is about her “personal funds.” How did she get 80 grand to blow on a store? Probably the same way she got money to study abroad, and travel the world collecting pencils.

    Hipster-chic: “…carefully packaged their purchase in a custom envelope, tying her signature bow around it.”

    • Her father was the late Kean Weaver who founded oil & gas company Triad Energy. He committed suicide in 2008 at the young age of 48 after the bottom fell out of highly leveraged oil & gas businesses. He no doubt wisely set up a trust for her before he lost everything.

      Is it better to have a rich father who killed himself, or a poor father who’s still alive? I know, it’s a tough call.
