WATCH: Hillary Clinton Has NOT Earned the Black Vote

While many in the Black community have been sending Senator Bernie Sanders through the wringer, Hillary Clinton is walking off with nearly the entire Black vote. The Clinton Era brought years of misery to African Americans and the nation. We are watching Clinton surrogatesbeneficiaries and “neutral” journalists sell their souls. All to destroy the record of the most Progressive & viable presidential candidate in decades and slide under the Clinton umbrella.

WATCH The Benjamin Dixon Show Handle This

Former Secretary of State & US Senator Hillary Clinton’s efforts to garner the Black vote consist of attracting delegates of color, adopting Bernie Sanders’ platforms and his talking points. She has also brought in the mothers of Black men slain by police in a show of “solidarity”. But, she also backs Rahm Emanuel in Chicago even after allegedly covering up the murder of Laquan McDonald, by police, to keep his job as Mayor of Chicago. She voted for the horrible, ill-conceived Iraq War that has killed Black people, pushed welfare reform, took cash from private prison companies, sat on the board of Walmart, helped send our jobs overseas, pushed the super predator lie with the force of the Oval Office, etc.

The economic crash of 2008 started in the Clinton White House in 1999. They pushed for the repeal of Glass-Steagall, a measure which separated Wall Street investment banking (gambling) from commercial banking (Grandma’s mattress money). That was the beginning of the end. Then-Congressman Bernie Sanders knew better. The powerful lobbying force that was First Lady Hillary Clinton sat out of this fight. She also doesn’t want Glass-Steagall reinstated now. Her powerful friends on The Street agree.

WATCH Hillary Clinton in Black History

Around the same time, Bernie Sanders was working in the Civil Rights Movement, Hillary was campaigning for racist politician Barry Goldwater. She also campaigned for Richard Nixon. Bernie was being ARRESTED for the rights of Black people while she was rubbing elbows with the nastiest, anti-Black politicans & operatives of the time. That matters.

    • Wrong. Facts are facts no matter who publishes them. From the link:

      Fact: Goldwater’s first recommendations, soon approved, was to desegregate the Arizona Air National Guard.

      Fact: Goldwater was an early member of the Arizona chapters of both the NAACP and the National Urban League, even making up the latter’s operating deficit when it was getting started.

      Fact: Goldwater desegregated the Senate cafeteria in 1953, demanding that his black legislative assistant, Kathrine Maxwell, be served along with every other Senate employee after learning she had been denied service.

      Fact: “In the mid-1970s, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, investigating improper operations of the intelligence community in the United States, proposed that transcripts of the FBI tapes about Martin Luther King Jr.’s alleged indiscretions be published. An outraged Goldwater declared he would not be a party to destroying King’s reputation and strode out of the committee room. A fellow Senator recalled that Goldwater’s protest “injected some common sense into the proceedings,” and the electronic surveillance transcripts were not released.”

      Fact: Barry Goldwater wasn’t a racist and claiming he was is a lie.
