ATTENTION

Perhaps the third time will be the charm. Once again this is NOT the MUD PIT.

Political trollery and mudslinging are not allowed anywhere else on the boards aside from the infamous Mud Pit.

Remember, if your post is removed for political trollery it automatically counts as TWO warnings.

Consider this more than fair warning.

As usual, do not reply to this post.

Where's the bar that shows Hillary (C)linton calling African-Americans "Super-Predators"?


It's right beside the rental applications that the Trumps marked (C)olored when they were from African Americans.


Wow...Trump handles all his rental applications personally?


He was a junior partner in those days ... he may have gone out for McDonald's for Daddy as well ... thankfully, now he has Governor Christie for that.


Yea, wasn't it Bill Clinton that was overheard telling Joe Biden, in regards to Obama...."heck just think Joe 20 years ago he would have been getting us out coffee" LOL

Only Trump is allowed to make gaffes

That's actually true. As backward as it sounds.

Trump is not a politician. Hillary is an experienced politician. As such she is expected to act like an experienced politician. Experience is not always a plus.

For example: if I am driving a truck with a CDL, I am considered a professional. Someone driving with a class D (normal drivers license) is not. If there is an accident, the first person the police look at is me. The first person the lawyers look at is me. The first person the courts look at is me. The first person the insurance companies look at is me. I am the professional, and I am held to a higher standard... as it should be.

That doesn't mean Trump gets a bye. He is expected to conduct himself in a professional manner as well, just not to the same extent as Hillary. He can be forgiven for using the inappropriate word from time to time; she should know better. Since she is big into enforcing Political Correctness, she even more so should be careful with her own wording.

Someone above posted that she had publicly expressed regret at her use of words. I'll give her that. Good show.

You people are MISSING IT!

She said 1/4 of the country is IRREDEEMABLE!

Does that mean 1/4 of the country will have to go to the ovens or mental houses? IRREDEEMABLE is a terminal definition.

TERMINAL DEFINITION.

I see this tossed around a lot by the right wing...

Have you ever read or listened to the full quote?



"We also have to have an organized effort against gangs, just as in a previous generation we had an organized effort against the mob," Clinton said in 1996.

"We need to take these people on. They are often connected to big drug cartels.
They are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called 'superpredators.' No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel. And the president has asked the FBI to launch a very concerted effort against gangs everywhere."


Strange effort there to morph an Anti-Gang effort in 1996 into somehow declaring African Americans super-predators?

Hispanics...and yes even WHITES...are members of gangs and yes gangs are in business with drug cartels.

Honestly..reading the above how do you come away thinking she equated specifically and exclusively African Americans with "Super Predators"???

Are ONLY African Americans in gangs?
Are ALL African Americans members of a gang.

Odd ...the ways people abuse their own thinking centers too aid their ideological/emotional needs.

Thinking objectively will serve you very well in life long after the elections are over...You shouldn't develop the habit of not liking objectivity, facts, logic and truth..

Just my 2 cents..

You may want to check the facts. The rumor mill (2010) had it that Clinton said that to Ted Kennedy, and the guy who repeated it was told by Tim Russert who died in 2008.

Inconvenient facts.

Why should we "excuse" Trump for anything he says in public, again?

He's a 70 year old man who has spent his life in the public eye.

There's nothing magical about "being a politician" that keeps one from saying stupid things ... or speaking the truth.

Any reason why you'd go way overboard and invoke the Nazi holocaust?

Did she say or suggest that it would be her policy to send "unredeemables" to the gas chambers or ovens?

I missed that quote ... could you provide it?

Hillary Clinton, from now until forever, will now be known as the person who thinks a large segment of the population is "deplorable".


I'll buy "large Segment" and "deplorable"..

I think her "half" estimation was careless..

I put it closer to 30% of Trump supporters and Trump Supporters are around 40% of the country right now...So about 12% of the country? 1 in 10 of the US population?

Yes...1 in 10 Americans is the proper combination of ignorant, hateful, angry, sexist and racist...

Trump has been a loud dog whistle to those folks....30% of his support easily..12% of the country..

Yes, along with the Hindenburg, the Titanic and the Great Fire of London ... damn those time-travelling Clintons.

(Probably put that ad in the Honolulu paper about Obama's birth, too ... right?)

But The Hillary hasnt been? There's EASILY just as many hardcore racists in the Dem camp. The Dem camp being the most violent effectively proves it. Doubt me? See here:
Social Justice Assault Warriors TV Marathon!

How Hill people keep harping on stuff like you're doing there is about as absurd as The Hillary's Campaign Against US Citizens (CAUC) is desperate.

Let's get back to the facts here, shall we?

Clinton did not categorize ALL Trump supporters as deplorable, irredeemable, racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.

In point of fact, she did three things: she stated, last night, as well as today, that she was grossly generalizing in her comments. If she were on ATS, she'd probably have used the word "hyperbole" as that seems to be one of our favorites.

(Can anyone think of even once that Trump has given a context for any of his blatherings? I can't.)

The second thing she did was to make a clear distinction between "racists, sexist, homophobes" etc. and those Trump supporters who are just normal hard working Americans who want change.

And of course, the third thing she said, calling out the well-known Trump supporters who ARE racist, sexist, etc., while true to some extent, is (as she said) gross generalization. It's political theatre. It's raw meat tossed to the crowd.

If you're going to make the case that Mr. Trump is often misquoted and misunderstood, at least, take a moment to critique Clinton for what she said, not what you want to twist it into.

Not guilty as usual.

It's all one big misunderstanding. Some hardcore democrats may even call this a republican propaganda against Hillary...
