Racist Statements by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump: A Comparative Analysis (“By Hook or Crook”)

Racist Statements by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump:
A Comparative Analysis

(“By Hook or Crook”)


Hillary Rodham Clinton


“And that’s why I think it is essential that we all stand up and say loudly and clearly, ‘Yes, black lives matter,’” Clinton said at South Carolina’s Brookland Baptist Church. (Source)


Clinton misses the boat here. All lives matter. Tamir Rice matters as much as Noah Chamberlin and Christopher Raymundo Marquez. To say that “Yes, Black Lives Matter” implies that others do not. Besides, and this is frankly stated, the BLM group borders on violent. Clinton only stated this to gain political support. Fact is, most Americans covet life of all races. Clinton's statement is divisive.


“And we all have a responsibility to face these hard truths of race and justice honestly and directly.” (Source)


The problem with race today has nothing to do with Clinton’s talking points. Again, most Americans already know this and believe it. The problem we Americans do face, which is closest to race, concerns:


A) Legal immigration (which most American support) versus illegal immigration and its monstrous costs in jobs and social welfare spending (which most Americans do not support). Any taxes illegals pay are countered by the welfare they receive be it free healthcare at the emergency rooms across the country, or cash, phones, EBT, and education costs they garner for their children (born here or not) while hardworking Americans are suffering under high taxes and little or no social welfare handouts. It’s clear to most free-thinking voters that the Democratic Party rakes the hands of the taxpayers in the welfare fire in order to build up their voter base; thus the reason for the pro-illegal immigration stance taken by this group.


B) Police abuse of minority suspects like the man in Baton Rouge, Alton Sterling. I don’t know all the facts. I wasn’t there. It looks like a really stupid accident - but that’s no excuse for the man’s death. But most Americans would agree that no one deserves to die like this man. Fanning the flames of racism, like the president has done (Ferguson), along with racially insensitive statements, like Clinton has made (above), doesn’t solve this problem. The problem is that the police across the country have been, what I call, “militarized.” Police and soldiers are two completely different angles of approach when dealing with people. I completely and positively blame the federal government for creating this culture of violence in our police forces nationwide where "suspects" are treated like combatants in a war zone.


“For a lot of well-meaning, open-minded white people, the sight of a young black man in a hoodie still evokes a twinge of fear.” (Source)


That is unfortunately true but not just with this situation or race, no thanks to our liberal media fanning the flames of racism. I personally felt a fear after the San Bernardino shooting occurred - as I walked past two women in burkas not far from the site of the shooting. And in an instant, I was ashamed of myself.


In one of their debates, Bernie Sanders reminded Hillary Clinton that she called Black people “super predators.” Her response? “Looking back, I shouldn’t have used those words, and I wouldn’t use them today.” (Source)


Agreed.


"I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak," Clinton told Tapper. (Source)


This is, according to our current PC culture, racist and also sexist, as if men are the only ones who can be “troublesome” if I understand Clinton’s metaphor correctly. So, all men are perhaps offended by this (except Bill who offends Hillary daily I'm sure), White, Black, Brown, Yellow, Red . . . not to mention Native Americans through the implicit degradation of the term “reservation.” I do not recall any apologies for this racist statement.


Donald J. Trump


“He’s Mexican,” Mr.Trump said last week about the judge hearing a civil fraud case against Trump University. “We’re building a wall between here and Mexico.” (Source)


Trump’s obviously annoyed, nay ticked off, by the lawsuit, rightly or wrongly. However, if any one of us were in a similar situation, we’d probably feel the same way he does. Would we say something like, “He’s Mexican” - which could be construed in our PC culture as racist? Probably not. Mind you that Judge Gonzalo Curiel is linked and maybe even a member of La Raza, which is a shadow racist group in and of itself. It is what it is.


“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” (Source)


Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. This caused a lot of upheaval, largely because of the primarily liberal media. The grammar of what Trump said is consistent with the way most people speak . . . in idioms. “They did this!” “They did that!” For example, when speaking about the DMV or a teacher, even, have you ever said, “They’re terrible!”, “They’re rude!”,  etc., instead of saying, “That clerk was terrible!”, That clerk was rude!”, etc.? By speaking in such ways, we make blanket statements and inadvertently stereotype. This is exactly what Trump did, just like 99% of all Americans. He’s no racist. That being said, what Trump meant was, “Some are bringing drugs. Some are bringing crime. Some are rapists. Most, I assume, are good people.” What’s lost in the liberal media firestorm (perhaps by design) is that illegal immigration is illegal - period. The costs are astronomical and one sided - Mexico doesn't allow reciprocity, rightly so. Donald Trump is no more a racist than our president, Hillary Clinton, or any of the showcase democrats like Nancy Pelosi or Jesse Jackson.


With the country rattled by the San Bernardino shooting in which a Muslim husband and wife massacred 14 and wounded 21 others, Trump’s came out on Monday with a doozy of a statement, calling for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” (Source)


That’s what countries do when they’re faced with such a threat. They close their borders. Our president allows mass illegal immigration at the border all the while we’re faced with an Islamic terrorist threat from abroad. Our president won’t even mention the phrase, “Islamic terrorist.” (Consider the cold blooded killings in Orlando which were committed by an Islamic terrorist who is not worth mentioning by name.) Trump is absolutely right that we need to properly vet our legal immigrants as well as build a wall to protect our people from these threats to our safety.


Megyn Kelly asked Trump in a debate, "You've called women fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals.” Trump responded by stating, "Only Rosie O'Donnell." (Source)


Now, this is not a presidential statement but it is a personal statement. The liberal media made a lot of hay out of this without reminding people that Rosie O’Donnell had publically ridiculed Trump, too.


In 2006, O'Donnell referred to Trump as a "snake-oil salesman" for deciding not to fire Miss USA Tara Conner. As a response, Trump referred to O'Donnell as "nice fat little Rosie" and a "dummy." (Source)
Come on, people. The left-leaning liberal media, government officials, 1%ers, blind democratic voters, etc. are as racist and bigoted as the next person. Now, if you are true blue or true red, you can’t be honest about the facts. If you are neither, then set aside your emotions and consider what’s been laid out in this brief treatise.

Let's put this to rest. Donald J. Trump is no racist, misogynist, baffoon, crook, liar, etc., no more than our president, the democrats, Bernie Sanders, and of course, Hillary Clinton actually is. These misconceptions are what the 1%ers and their mouth piece, the liberal media, want you to believe. Hillary is bought and paid for. They own her, They do not own Trump - and that scares them to high Heaven. So, take a stand for our country - if not for yourself then for your grandchildren.


I am an independent and I support Donald Trump for the simple fact that the Dems want to continue to globalize and welfarize in order to protect their future and increase their constituency . . . at the expense of the working class (through lower wages and standards of living) and taxpayers (through higher taxes to support welfare spending for their constituents). The Repubs are just too lazy and stupid to do anything, dazed and confused like a cold blooded lizard in the outback of Australia during a cold spell, whereas the Dems are a warm blooded predator looking to devour whatever it sees as a threat: free thinking Americans who work and pay taxes and their leader, Donald J. Trump.


The choice is clear in 2016!
