38. Related: Bill Clinton Is 'Almost' Sorry for Being Defensive and Condescending to Black Lives Matter

 


On Friday, Bill Clinton admitted he was almost sorry about arguing with Black Lives Matter protesters this week over his and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hand in creating America’s mass incarceration problem. However, as Brandy once sang, almost doesn’t count.

During an appearance at Penn State, the former POTUS pulled out his best folksy charm to make up for how racist and condescending he sounded just 24 hours before in Philadelphia. Via NBC News:

41. Body Slam: Bill Clinton's Black Lives Matter Comments Were Revealingly Honest

 


...But what was so awesome about his rant was the fact that, for once, we got to see under the veneer of white, liberal political correctness — we got to see a white person with power who's done real harm to our community say what he truly believes. And as a black person, there's nothing I appreciate more than white people being upfront and honest about their problematic beliefs.

While conservatives often make no bones about being openly xenophobic and racist, there's something unsettling about the way many white liberals interact with people of color. Often, liberals are so well-versed on the polite conventions of respectable and appropriate speech that they can become talking-point robots rather than individuals who have their own set of beliefs. This applies to how straight liberals often address the LGBTQ community, how upper- and upper-middle-class people address the poor, and how white people address people of color. There's nothing scarier for a minority than not really knowing what the person across from them actually thinks about their intrinsic worth and their fight against oppression. Bill Clinton, a man we in the black community have faithfully supported for decades while being actively ignored by presidential candidates or used as fodder to advance racist stereotypes for political gain (e.g., Ronald Reagan's "welfare queens", has finally revealed himself in all his glory — and it was an absolutely amazing sight to behold.

50. Bill Clinton’s Welfare Reform Law Is Kicking Up To 1 Million People Off Food Stamps

 

Clinton touted the supposed benefits of the law this week.



“These totally unnecessary cuts would increase demand on the nation’s charitable food system at a time when food banks and other hunger-relief groups are stretched to meet sustained high need,” Diana Aviv, CEO of Feeding America, a national nonprofit that supports food banks, said Friday.

Usually billed as a “work requirement,” the limit on benefits was part of the landmark welfare reform law Clinton signed after campaigning for president on the promise to “end welfare as we know it.” Clinton touted the law’s benefits in response to protesters at an event on Thursday.

“They say the welfare reform bill increased poverty,” Clinton said. “Then why did we have the largest drop in African-American poverty in history when I was president? The largest in history.”

55. How can you be "almost sorry"?

Either you're sorry, or you aren't. Is he almost sorry because it's blowing up in his face? That's called not being sorry.

I wish someone had asked him how close to being sorry he was. "Are you at least 3/5ths sorry?"

If I had been a Clinton fan that would have ended it right there and I would make a public announcement to boot. I sure as heck wouldn't be putting up #PopeGate posts instead. But, Camp Weather-vane is fine and dandy with this outrageous display of racism. Yeah I am going to say it. Telling these protesters they are providing aid and comfort to murderers is racist and it's ugly as hell.

19. Things Just Got Intense Between Bill Clinton and BLM

 


Bill Clinton and Black Lives Matter protestors sparred on Thursday afternoon over the formers president's policies, which have been linked to the mass incarceration and impoverishment of Black people.

Protestors held up signs calling out presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of the term "super predators" to describe gang leaders while boosting for her husband's tough on crime credentials during a 1996 campaign stop.
...

His heated defense of his and Hillary Clinton's crime record reminded some people of the "black on black crime" argument, which insists Black people themselves are solely responsible for incarceration and poverty in their community.

32. Bill Clinton Reaches Peak White Mansplain in a Face-Off Against Black Lives Matter Protesters

 

Excerpt from jezebel.com:

Bill Clinton Reached Peak White Mansplain in a Face-Off Against Black Lives Matter Protesters

Bill Clinton filled in for his wife and presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton at a rally in Philadelphia, where he proceeded to clash with protesters from the Black Lives Matter movement in a way that can only be categorized as “peak cis white mansplain.”

The incident, which took place on April 7, began when Clinton addressed a group of BLM demonstrators situated near the podium, many of whom held homemade signs festooned with anti-Hillary slogans.

Many of the messages, like “Hillary Clinton Is A Murder” [sic] and “Black Youth Are Not Super Predators” alluded to the former president’s 1994 crime bill—Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act—which has since been held responsible for a rise in mass incarceration rates.

According to Reuters, ten years after the bill was passed into law, “6 percent of all black men in their 30s were in prison, a rate six times higher than that of white men of the same age,” with 1.56 million prisoners overall incarcerated in federal or state institutions.

Remember when the campaigns were in the south and many of us wondered why the PoC were supporting Hillary and they were berating people for not understanding anything and to just shut up with our opinions on the subject.
What I wonder is if they are starting to change their minds about that? Or are we still stupid and ignorant for thinking Bill and Hillary were HORRIBLE for AA.

48. Let's just get the facts out there so people can make up their own minds.

 

Everybody has a right to their opinions and their own vote. If anybody wants to vote for Hillary that's their business.

This is for all voters to know what's going on with Bill Clinton vs #BLM protesters.

61. Oh...I've seen one

Brought up Bernie's use of the word ghetto and said Bill gets a pass. But had no comment about the Clinton's blocking a wage increase for Haitian workers.

62. This is the last thing they want to discuss. They know this is disastrous to the Clinton campaign.

 

That's why they are posting so many OP's on Bernie and the Vatican.

70. This is the biggest uglyness of the campaign so far.

The Clintons could not wait to kick blacks to the curb apparently.

72. Trying to get those swing voters again?

That's what their tough on crime stuff was about the first time. Maybe it's because Bernie is winning over more Black voters.

79. Months ago I had a post hidden for predicting the Clinton's would dump black voters

After they got big victories in the south on the strength of black votes.

Sheesh. You had to be blind not to see this coming.
