HILLARY = TWO-FACED LIAR CAUGHT AGAIN = LYING TO BLACK VOTERS!
HILLARY = Seems that we—black people—are her winning card, one that Hillary is eager to play.
1992 Love affair = Bill Clinton threw on some shades and played the saxophone on The Arsenio Hall Show.
Bill Clinton = Pretended to by our first black president or our boy in the White House. = Black voters remarkably loyal to the Clintons for 25+ years.
CLINTONS = WILL THEY STAY SUCKERED INTO THE CLINTONS DECEPTIONS? Clintons = Pretend to take extreme political risks to defend the rights of African Americans and ALWAYS PROMISE a new era of hope and prosperity for Blacks
CLINTONS = NAFTA Deindustrialization/Globalization = USE SLAVE LABOR IN ASIA = NO MORE JOBS FOR BLACKS
Bill Clinton LIES in run for president in 1992 promised a Great Economy for Blacks = Blacks were suffering economic collapse across America as jobs were shipped to slave labor Plantation nations and Factories closed = Quadrupled Unemployment rates among young black men + Homelessness + Despair = Crime rates spiked + Crack epidemic
FACT: Bill Clinton joined the RIGHT-WING backlash against the civil-rights movement and embraced Reagan’s RACIST AGENDA AGAINST BLACKS = Destroying Black Lives and entire Communities FACT: Clinton SOLD the NEW CORPORATE DEMOCRATS (DLC) to win back millions of white voters in the South using right-wing narratives = Racist punishment of THOSE CRIME-DOING BLACKS = Railing against “welfare queens” and criminal “predators” and condemning “big government.” = TOUGH ON CRIME!
Bill Clinton = Mastered the art of sending mixed cultural messages to Blacks appealing to African Americans by belting out “Lift Every Voice and Sing” in black churches = At the same time signaling to poor and working-class whites – I am tougher on black communities than Republicans had been.
FACT: Clintons = Presided over the largest increase in federal and state prison inmates of any president in American history.
FACT: Clintons Escalated the War on Crime or the War on Drugs beyond GOP had ever imagined.
FACT: Clinton “three strikes” law = $30 billion crime bill that created dozens of new federal capital crimes, mandated life sentences for some three-time offenders, and authorized more than $16 billion for state prison grants and the expansion of police forces. = THE INDUSTRIAL PRISON COMPLEX! = Clinton left office with highest rate of incarceration in the world = DISPROPORTIONATELY BLACKS
CLINTONS = 26 TIMES MORE Prison admissions for African Americans over 1983 = “President Clinton’s tenure was the worst.” = HILLARY SUPPORTED IT ALL!
HILLARY = Travelled and lectured for the 1994 crime bill using racially coded rhetoric to cast black children as animals. “They are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”
CLINTONS = Still invoke the economy and country that Bill Clinton left behind as a legacy = BLACK DISASTERS!
CLINTONS = 1990s jobless rate among black men in their 20s who didn’t have a college degree rose to its highest level ever = Skyrocketing incarceration rate.
CLINTON TRICKS = Gov statistics like poverty and unemployment rates do not include incarcerated people = CLINTONS PUT UNEMPLOYED BLACKS IN PRISON AND THE DATA LIES ARE MADE BETTER! TRUE jobless rate for young, non-college-educated black men = 42% CLINTONS 1996 = ATTACKED BLACKS removing the federal safety net for poor families = “end welfare as we know it.” + “the era of big government is over” in State of the Union address = ENDED Aid to Families With Dependent Children (AFDC) and now American has highest child poverty rate in developed world. = Hillary Clinton ardently supported and praised in 2008
CLINTONS = SAVED NO MONEY CUTTING WELFARE = MONEY WAS SPENT ON PRISONS! = $54 BILLION! They are not just gangs of kids anymore…they are ‘super-predators.’ —Hillary Clinton, speaking in support of the 1994 crime bill = Extreme poverty doubled to 1.5 million in the decade and a half after the law was passed = Surviving on cash incomes of no more than $2 per person per day
CLINTONS = Slashed $Billions from public-housing and child-welfare budgets and transferred to the mass-incarceration machine. = DOUBLED PRISONS! = “effectively making the construction of prisons the nation’s main housing program for the urban poor.”
CLINTONS = Championed discriminatory laws against formerly incarcerated people that have kept millions of Americans locked in a cycle of poverty and desperation. = NO Pell grants for prisoners + Laws denying federal financial aid to students with drug convictions + Laws imposing lifetime ban on welfare and food stamps for ex-felony drug offense CLINTONS = Most alarmingly made it easier for public-housing agencies to deny shelter to anyone with any sort of criminal history + Championed the “one strike and you’re out” = NO Housing of a minor offender = Homelessness Street people in ABJECT POVERTY! = 50% of Black were saddled with criminal records = PURE EVIL! = Generations lost to the prison system + Families RIPPED APART! = School-to-prison pipeline
CLINTONS = Underfunded schools to brand-new high-tech prisons. = Rather spend $Billions on a vast new penal system than on putting young people to work = RAHM EMANUEL NOW DOING IT IN CHICAGO!
FACT: Clintons punishing black people harshly = Ignored pleas for investment in schools, better housing, jobs programs for young people, economic-stimulus packages, drug treatment on demand, and better access to healthcare. = Instead Clintons created Prisons and Prisoners.
HILLARY = Listen closely she is still singing the same old tune in a slightly different key. = “pragmatic,” “face political realities,” + Don’t believe that in fighting for economic justice + “unrealistic” when attacking Bernie
NOTE: Ta-Nehisi Coates ENDORSED Sanders! as have many truthful Black Leaders. Bernie’s racial-justice and political revolution must be sustained for the LONG RUN to truly be transformational change.
CLINTON = THINKS SHE HAS THE BLACK VOTE == Ha Ha GUESS AGAIN! Blacks and all Americans seem to be muster the courage to join together in a revolutionary movement with people of all colors who believe that basic human rights and economic, racial, and gender justice. = The sleeping GIANT is waking up, stretch its limbs, and tell both parties — THERE IS A NEW HUMANITY GAME IN AMERICA!
