Racist Olympics: Trump vs. Hillary

Over and over I keep hearing about how racist Trump is. People keep trumpeting (no pun intended) that the world would be so much better off with Hillary behind the wheel, because at least she’s not racist.

Most of us are very familiar with Trumps recent remarks about deporting Muslims, illegal immigrants and building a wall along the Mexican border.

However, no one really talks about Hillary’s own remarks. She’s made several throughout her political career.

Don’t believe me?

Here’s a few of them.

The first one we have is her referring to urban youth as “super predators” with “no conscience, no empathy”?

Have a watch.

As an aside, I found this interview interesting.

In this next clip she and Bill De Blasio make a joke about C.P time (colored people time) which some people found offensive.

In a recent CNN interview, she says she’s used to men who sometimes get off the reservation.

It might just be me, but I think she knew she had messed up as soon as she said it. She kind of stumbles over her words for a bit and looks a little panicked.

She’s also been accused of calling her husband’s campaign manager a ‘fucking Jew bastard’:

Hillary Clinton is fighting a rearguard action to avoid further damage to her standing with the crucial Jewish vote in her campaign for a Senate seat after a claim that she once used an ethnic insult against one of Bill Clinton’s aides.

A book out today claims that 26 years ago she called Paul Fray, her husband’s campaign manager at the time, a “fucking Jew bastard”.

Mrs Clinton denied the allegation and pressed the president into supporting her, but the author, Jerry Oppenheimer, said: “Three witnesses have now publicly acknowledged that she said it.”

People are giving it to Trump for saying he would build a wall along the Mexican border and deport illegal immigrants, but years earlier, Hillary supported pretty much the exact same thing.

Personally, I think they’re both despicable for a number of reasons. I still find it hard to believe that a country of 300+ million people couldn’t come up with a few candidates better than these two jokers, but there you have it.

Anyhow, what do you think? Do you believe Hillary is racist? Is Trump racist or are both just misunderstood?

  1. The Democrat Party subdivides its constituents according race, sexual preference, gender and religion.

    It brands its enemies, racist, sexist, bigot, homophobes.

    It seems obvious that the Democrat Party is by nature exactly what it says its enemies are.

    Which by the way is an excellent marketing tool.

  2. I think, too, we have to take a step back from things that happened fifteen or 20 years ago, or longer, and let them go.

    Some statements are made at a time when the atmosphere was very different. Taken out of context and then spun into cotton candy, you can make a case for or against almost anyone.
    No one should not be held eternally accountable for actions that at the time were considered as part of the landscape and culture, if you will.

    It isnt the single instance of verbal indiscretion that counts, it’s the repeated, public and deliberate jackhammer delivery of such ‘indiscretions” delivered to inflame, to annoy, to get a response and maybe a vote.

    And you can be sure the Hillary mongers are sifting through every single bit of public speaking she has made over time (and there’s a LOT of it) in order to discredit her. And why? To what purpose?

    I have become very wary of spin doctors, taking a statement out of context and then telling you what you just heard, but with a few embellishments.

    • Judy,

      Core values don’t change over time.

      Hillary is the same now as she was when she got fired from the congressional committee investigating Nixon’s Watergate crimes.

      She got fired because she advocated depriving her political enemies of their constitutional rights.

      “Hillary mongers” as you call them are none other than Hillary and her own people.

      Thousands and thousands of their own emails were published by WikiLeaks pulling back the veil on ingrained, pervasive, long term Democrat Party corruption.

      Meanwhile, RINO Republican and friend of President Obama got canned by THE Donald for trying to sneak a few lobbyists into his new administration.

      Hillary’s entire organization is run and funded by lobbyists it is now known as a matter of fact.

    • “I think, too, we have to take a step back from things that happened fifteen or 20 years ago, or longer, and let them go.”

      I’m going to play devils advocate. Wasn’t many of the things Trump is being accused of done several years ago, such as the grab them video?

      And many of those interviews were done recently, especially the CNN interview. I made sure to include a wide range to show that this isn’t something new, and I also chose liberal sources whenever possible. You don’t get more liberal than The Young Turks for example. I also made sure to grab clips that captured the words surrounding the inflammatory comment for context.

      “I have become very wary of spin doctors, taking a statement out of context and then telling you what you just heard, but with a few embellishments.”

      I agree. Video is handy, but I agree, especially when it comes to the mainstream media. I wonder if mainstream journalism is dead to be honest.

      Thanks for your opinion!

  3. I won’t pretend that Hillary is an angel or doesn’t come with some sort of prepackaged biases.

    The question, at least in a political sense, is who is going to try to legislate those biases? Clinton can call people “Jew bastards” all she wants in private, but if her policies don’t discriminate against Jewish people, then what?

    Trump, on the other hand, is actively and openly championing racist policy with the help of openly racist team members.

    So is Hillary Clinton personally colorblind? I don’t know, but probably not. But were her policies colorblind? Certainly more so than Trump’s.

    • “The question, at least in a political sense, is who is going to try to legislate those biases?”

      That’s a great question. Clinton tried to enact that legislation by voting for the wall many times over. Trump has said he will but hasn’t yet.

      I think we often look at ‘our side’ and convince ourselves that they aren’t as bad as the opposing side. I really enjoy looking at both sides, and once you do I think you realize that they look remarkably similar in nature.

      I think Clinton does whatever she deems to be politically advantageous to her at that moment. Remember, she used to be against gay marriage, for example, and now she’s not. That’s another area where she enacted policies (or tried to) that Trump so far hasn’t been able to do.

      Will Trump try?

      Perhaps. I don’t know, but with Clinton you can clearly see a track record and know.

      Thanks for dropping on by and leaving your thoughts, Ryan. Greatly appreciated!

  4. I chose her as the lesser of two evils, and only because she handled Trump so well in the debates. What her private politics are, and her political stances are, matters not at this point. what does matter is the doofus we just elected.

    • ” What her private politics are, and her political stances are, matters not at this point. what does matter is the doofus we just elected.”

      That’s true because she lost. 🙂

      “I chose her as the lesser of two evils, and only because she handled Trump so well in the debates. ”

      I expected nothing less. She’s has 30 years of political speaking under her belt. Trump has zero. I also think Hillary is smarter than Trump, although I think her ego and entitlement got in the way.

  5. First off, I submit that deporting illegal immigrants isn’t racist. Nor is blocking entry to Islamic terrorists.

    And according to the NYT exit polls, the Black, Hispanic, and Asian votes for a Republican nominee increased by 7, 8 and 11% respectively from 2012—which kind of puts the kibosh on the whole “Trump voters were all white racists” argument.

  6. I don’t think either one is overtly racist themselves. And the policies of Trump (and Clinton if she had won) will subtly continue institutionalized racism. A problem we, voters, policy makers, the ACLU etc will continue to work to improve. My main argument for Trump being more racist is that he refused to disavow the endorsement of the KKK specifically one leader (whose name I don’t even want to remember). Clearly Trump wanted to stay in this guy’s good graces. Shame. Shame. Shame. Clinton would have spoken out against that without hesitation. (And keep in mind I didn’t vote for her, I am not one of her supporters). Trump is also more racist because he will allow overtly racist acts and language by his supporters. He won’t speak strongly against it or stand up for the victims. Shame. Shame. Shame. (But by all means, I would love to see Trump prove he wrong, the sooner the better.)

  7. You missed one. A little over ten years ago Hillary found herself in hot water over a ‘racist joke’ about Gandhi.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/hillary-regrets-gandhi-joke/

    I always found that controversy funny considering that Gandhi himself was a racist. He had a lot of contempt for black people. He thought that ‘kaffirs’ were savages who were too uncivilized to be given the same consideration as Indians.

    There are historians who try to get him off the hook, but he said what he said. In the end, he was still Gandhi. Could it be that panic over potential racism is a bizarre form of social pranksterism?

    People who are ‘afraid for their lives’ or who see America ‘taking a step backward’ don’t strike me as intelligent. They seem more like high school kids pulling a fire alarm to interrupt classes.
