"She's Baldly Lying": Dana Frank Responds to Hillary Clinton's Defense of Her Role in Honduras Coup

As Hillary Clinton seeks to defend her role in the 2009 Honduras coup, we speak with Dana Frank, an expert on human rights and U.S. policy in Honduras. "This is breathtaking that she’d say these things. I think we’re all kind of reeling that she would both defend the coup and defend her own role in supporting its stabilization in the aftermath," Frank says. "I want to make sure that the listeners understand how chilling it is that a leading presidential candidate in the United States would say this was not a coup. … She’s baldly lying when she says we never called it a coup."

This interview is a must-read for anyone interested in the facts surrounding Hillary's involvement in this incident.

Why 'Basta Hillary!' Protestors Say Hillary Has Blood On Her Hands

According to the group, while Clinton may be wooing the immigrant vote and have increasing support among immigrant groups, she actually has “blood on her hands” and is responsible for forcing immigrants into low paid jobs while destabilizing their Latin American homelands.

Here is how they explain Clinton’s actions in Honduras and other Latin American nations:

Hillary Clinton supports violent military coups in Latin America and, specifically, is responsible for the coup in Honduras that ousted Zelaya and the recent assassination of the beloved Berta Caceres.

The coup governments supported by Hillary Clinton then open up their economies to US capital for further exploitation. Through free-trade agreements and other neo-liberal policies Hillary Clinton destabilized Latin America. The devastating effects of these policies then lead to mass migration across the border.

Once here migrants are forced to work low paid jobs while under the constant threat of deportation. Hillary Clinton doesn’t just support mass deportation, but is also supported and funded by companies that build and maintain FOR PROFIT immigration Detention Centers.

She is a former member of the Obama administration who oversaw the recent raids and deportation in this community right here in Corona.

So, how is it that Hillary Clinton supports the Latino community?


On April 10, the group attempted to protest Bill Clinton’s stumping for Hillary in Corona, Queens.

According to the members, they were removed by the police immediately.
