Hillary Clinton, Race Card, And The Hillbilly Mentality

Hillary Clinton, Race Card, And The Hillbilly Mentality


 On Blast! The hillbilly syndrome is alive and well.

Hillary Clinton is desperate to win presidential candidacy. She pulled the race card to try and gain support of white non college graduate working class Americans. This is a trick that has worked beautifully for many politicians in the past. But many Americans regardless of racial background won’t fall for this old race card pandering trick.


When politicians are loosing they pull this race card trick. Hillary pandered to black voters at the beginning of her campaign, now she’s pandering to white racism because many black voters support Obama. She came across as a person who liked blacks and wanted them to vote for her. At the beginning of her campaign, the majority of blacks were supporting her over Barack Obama — because blacks remembered former president Bill Clinton. Many blacks liked Bill Clinton when he was president.


By Hillary pandering to blue collar working class whites — she is giving the impression that these type of whites are racists hillbilly type whites. She is reinforcing the hillbilly stereotype.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign in over whether she admits it or not. She will not become the presidential nominee; Barack Obama will become the presidential nominee and will defeat John McCain in the run off.

Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States Of America.

May 9, 2008 — WASHINGTON – First it was Bill Clinton dismissing Barack Obama as just another black candidate winning South Carolina.

Now comes Hillary Rodham Clinton, splashing moonshine onto those smoldering embers by telling West Virginia voters that "hardworking Americans, white Americans" support her, not Obama.

This, she argues, is why superdelegates should strip the nomination from Obama and give it to her, even though she trails him by every legitimate measure.

Is this really how Democratic Party bosses talk in smoky back rooms?

Well, now these racial politics have spilled out into the public and are splintering longtime, devoted Democrats into separate camps.

It’s become the "working-class whites" versus the "eggheads and African-Americans."

Now we know where Sen. Clinton’s loyalties truly lie: with black Democrats, but only if it’s in her own interest.

The Clintons have shattered their brand name with those voters, who remained so loyal to Bubba when he got into so much trouble.

Writer Toni Morrison now says she never meant Bill Clinton was America’s "first black president" based on his racial instincts. Rather, she says, it’s just because he’d been unjustly railroaded, the way so many blacks have been throughout history.

With no one left to cry to, Sen. Clinton has gone nuclear and she’s getting kookier by the minute.

Yesterday she was toast. Today, she’s looking more like scrambled eggs.

In a turn of desperate Clintonian logic, she says she’s not getting out of the race "until there’s a nominee."

But the reason there isn’t a nominee is because she won’t get out of the race!

Now, the party wants to move on to a new era with someone who at least appears not to have a "For Sale" sign on his principles and loyalties.

But Clinton refuses to go.

She’s doing what the Clintons have always done. She’s spinning and surviving and trying to win. It’s the only principle that is non-negotiable for the Clintons.

May 9, 2008 —

Hillary Rodham Clinton played the race card yesterday as she dismissed Barack Obama as a candidate who will have a hard time winning support from "white Americans."
It was the most starkly racial comment Clinton has made in the campaign, and drew quick condemnation from some Democrats.
She’s been on the defensive ever since Tuesday’s big loss in North Carolina and narrow win in the Indiana primary – dismissing calls to drop ou

"I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on," she told USA Today in an interview published yesterday.

She referred to an Associated Press story on Indiana and North Carolina exit polls "that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hardworking Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me."
She added, "There’s a pattern emerging here."

An analysis of racial breakdowns is always done behind the scenes by campaigns, but it’s rarely discussed by a candidate openly.

The Obama campaign declined comment, referring to spokesman Bill Burton’s statement to USA Today.
Burton, noting that Obama performed strongly among working-class voters in Indiana and did better with whites there than in Ohio, said the Illinois senator will appeal "to Americans from every background and all walks of life."

"These statements from Sen. Clinton are not true and, frankly, disappointing," he said.

    Hillary Clinton continues to throw the Rev. Wright up in Mr. Obama’s face as part of her mission to keep stoking the fears of White America.

    Every time she does this I shout at the TV, “Say it, Obama! Say that when she and her husband were having marital difficulties regarding Monica Lewinsky, who did she and Bill bring to the White House for ’spiritual counseling?’ THE REVEREND JEREMIAH WRIGHT!”

    But no, Obama won’t throw that at her. It wouldn’t be right. It wouldn’t be decent. She’s been through enough hurt. And so he remains silent and takes the mud she throws in his face.

    That’s why the crowds who come to see him are so large. That’s why he’ll take us down a more decent path. That’s why I will vote for him.

    Also, Bill Clinton brought in the Rev. Jesse Jackson as his spiritual advisor too. Many people though that this was a bad choice, and yes Hillary has been through a lot of emotional hurt in this campaign she has to know it is over.

    Am sorry to say this, Hillary clinton, is a just a another power crazied b”ch. I will be depressed if she actually wins.

    On the other hand thou, i still think that Obama is still not the right person for this job, this really angers me as i have great admiration for what he represent and vision for Americans (particularly for the coloured people (blacks inparticular)). I think his lack of experience would save a disadvantage, i sincerely hope that is wouldnt be the case.

  4. seb

    The thing must blacks and mixed black people should understand is that Obama is not a messiah to black folks, he is not running for president of black folks, he is running for the president of the united states that means asian, latino, white and yes, black people. Any right thinking person will want a fair candidate not one who will benefit their group over others.

    The sooner people understand this the less disappointed they will be.

  5. Joseph

    Dude, when the Philosopher Kings will rule perhaps there shall be less disappointments. Since Latino stands for a group of diverse people just like American does I would not even say he stands for latinos and then say blacks, whites, and asians cause these very same races can be latino.

  6. seb

    Ok joseph, i understand your point. i am very aware of the fact the Word latino refer the culture of certain group people, and these people could be white, black etc as you mention.

    The point i was trying to make, which perhep wasnt as clear i thought, was that race shouldnt be a fact in this election.

  7. Joseph

    True, but people want to support their own kind, and in this case it’s probably best to support their ideas and policies if they are going to be the leader of your people and other people.

    The same was also said of President John F. Kennedy, that he lacked experience. In the end, he made those “naysayers” look foolish.

    Also, Seb, in America it is not acceptable to use the archaic term “colored” people, although it may be acceptable in your country.

    p.s. What are some of the popular blogs in your country (if any)? Just curious…

    Chancellor Fan,

    My apologies for using the term coloured people if it offend you or anyone else for that matter.

    I believe that Hillary and Bill have always been hillbilly, they play this role-pretending that they are 100 percent for blacks.During the primary, blacks got a glimpse of the real Hillary and Bill.

    Obama also sort of uses the race card to get an advantage politically;If Obama identified as biracial he would hardly get any votes from blacks and most whites, because most voters believe in the ODR. If Obama had a white wife, his name would have been mud, despite him having a white mother.Most whites like Obama, because they believe that he is “staying in his place”.

    America still has a long way to go in regards to race relations.
