Race Card Flashback

old hillary

Let’s jump in the wayback machine and check out this post by Oliver Willis from May 2008:

Hillary White Power Clinton

The last throes are pretty messy.


Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed Wednesday to continue her quest for the Democratic nomination, arguing she would be the stronger nominee because she appeals to a wider coalition of voters — including whites who have not supported Barack Obama in recent contests.

“I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on,” she said in an interview with USA TODAY. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article “that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”

“There’s a pattern emerging here,” she said.

Indeed, a pattern has emerged some time ago. Boy, did we dodge a bullet.

“[W]orking, hard-working Americans, white Americans”. She really said that. Wow.

Congratulations, Hillary Clinton, you win the prize for the first Democratic Bigot Eruption since I’ve been keeping track of this. Even professional haters like Pat Buchanan and his ilk aren’t so balls-out about racism. You’ve been getting your ass handed to you and especially among black voters. This shows me once again that we – who are apparently lazy and shiftless non-Americans based on your definition – have yet again been a leading indicator.

There was maybe a slight chance Barack Obama might have been pushed to pick you as his running mate, but we can’t have someone spouting Klan-style talking points on the ticket. Heck, there’s a good shot with language like that you won’t win back your senate seat in 2012. I mean, a lot of those apparently lazy and shiftless non-American blacks helped you to win and they’d just as soon vote for someone else in the primary or the Republican in the election rather than someone echoing Bull Connor’s language.

“Working, hard working Americans, white Americans”, indeed.

UPDATE: Thanks for the link Americablog, and to make clear what I consider Clinton’s Klan-style talking point is her assertion that the hard working Americans are white Americans. That’s what I take offense to, and I don’t think you have to be black to feel that way.

These days Oliver Willis is part of the online lynch mob screaming for the head of Republican Steve Scalise. What was Scalise’s crime?

Twelve years ago when Scalise was a state senator he gave a speech in front of a sketchy group with an ambiguous name that turned out to be a white supremacist organization started by the notorious David Duke. But Duke was not present at the conference and it is unclear if Scalise knew what their beliefs were when he spoke to them. He gave a wonky speech on state tax policy and there is no indication that he hung around afterwards.

I’m not defending racism or Steve Scalise but Oliver Willis has no credibility on this subject.

    was that around the time backtrack called working class whites, ” bitter knitters with guns and sticking to their religion?”
    Do you think that had any thing to do with Hillary’s comment?

    just for the record, why is it ok for politicians to make speeches and hang around with people who hate whites, but not ok to make speeches to white groups.

    during that campaign, there was more racial hate from the rev wrights, the father fleglers, the black panthers and a few other groups than I had ever seen in my life. Maybe the hate was always there but it was brought out into the open in 2008.
    Hate is hate, no matter what color it comes in.

      we really do need a good president. The person who wins the next election has their work cut out for them. Must be good a healing due to all the damage done by trying to divide the country. Must be good at foreign policy due to all the damage done to our standing in the world. must a president of all the people not just some of the people

      • Constance says:

        I don’t think Obama has been a good President even for blacks, their unemployment is even worse than the rest of the citizens. Yeah I know the employment situation is easing up but the new jobs are mostly low paid. Many, many people in their 50s have lost their careers and are taking up “under the table cash only” work to make ends meet. Obama has only been a good President for scammers like Sharpton and Solyndra and other government parasites.

        • DeniseVB says:

          The only ones benefitting from the Obama economy are the Obamas. It’s incredible how their personal wealth has grown in the past 6 years. He only makes 400k year, free healthcare and rent ?

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Mine too Helen. 🙂

  2. DeniseVB says:

    I saw the story about Scalise elsewhere on an msm site and they attributed “uncovered by a political blogger”. Ugh, that was oWillis ? He’s to matters of racism like Amanda Marcotte is to feminism. Just ick.

  3. HELENK3 says:


    hospitals closing.
    obamacare working?

  4. HELENK3 says:


    Scalise does not have a racist bone in his body per black democrat

    think this guy spoke at a few white people only rallies

    Investing in the ObamaFund: Treasury rolls out a new savings plan without a Congressional vote.
    The Wall Street Journal on Strongman Obama making his own retirement accounts for his subjects:

    Intended for those who haven’t started saving for retirement, don’t have a retirement plan at work, and make less than $129,000 per year ($191,000 for married couples filing jointly), the myRA requires no minimum investment to open an account and promises no fees for investors.

    Readers will recall President Obama ’s announcement of this program in January’s State of the Union address. Mr. Obama said that he would direct the Treasury to create this new retirement plan, which was puzzling because such plans are normally created by law, not Presidential order.

    Congressional staff were as puzzled as anyone and wondered how the White House would justify the creation of this new savings vehicle. Or perhaps Team Obama would seek new authority from Congress? Well, Treasury is now offering these accounts and has hired Texas-based Comerica to manage them with a partner, Fidelity National Information Services . But the executive branch received no new authority from Congress this year to launch the program.

    Treasury is funding the program out of the budget for its Bureau of the Fiscal Service. The assertion here is that existing law allows this part of the Treasury to hire financial agents as part of its mission to efficiently finance the federal government.

    But that’s a reach, because far from delivering efficiencies for the taxpayer, this program is designed to subsidize the investors.

    The great moments of Strongman Barack Obama.

    Pretty good list of annoying liberals and I think every one of them were blogged about on TCH this past year 😉 No sighting of owillis or the VOX gang though MSNBC did have a spot with all of them tied up neatly with a pretty bow…..

    “If the Government takes into its hands that which the man ought to do for himself it will inflict upon him greater mischiefs than all the benefits he will have received or all the advantages that would accrue from them. The essence of the whole thing is that the spirit of self-reliance, the spirit of true and genuine manly independence, should be preserved in the minds of the people, in the minds of the masses of the people.” –William Ewart Gladstone

  9. 1539days says:

    I remember some of those early days of the 2008 primaries. Obama was getting votes by the same people who still support him now, young, dumb White progressives. Early on, Blacks were looking past Obama to vote for Hillary because she was a known quantity. It took a lot of faithless superdelegates and a media campaign to change that image.

  10. elliesmom says:

    Popping in this morning and seeing the photo of Hillary Clinton, I was hit over the head with something. I am so over her.

    • Constance says:

      Yeah those Dems have to come up with a candidate who can act as an executive and efficiently run government and they need someone who will be under 70 on the day they take office. Americans need someone who loves our country and that might be the Dems biggest problem in 2016.

    • mothy67 says:

      I believed the tears in NH. She was right and yet she still backed him for her own future. Had she not supported him he would have lost and Palin would have gotten there before her. Only Jeb could persuade me to consider her. Fauxcohantas vs. Jeb and I cast a ballot for myself.

  13. DeniseVB says:

    Oh for pete’s sake, those evil racist NYPD cops, sigh….


    No, not a good time to prank them, besides NYPD just released a whole new class of rookies on the streets, the vets are stressed enough already 😉

    • piper says:

      Stupid – no common sense. But now he’ll get his 5 minutes of fame on tv and YouTube. What more can you ask from a dare or a nutter.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Ellen D could be liable if someone gets hurt taking her dare.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I thought of that too. Digging into the comments, the guy is a “professional” Ellen Dance Challenge dimwit so he makes money whenever someone clicks on his video. Looking at the other videos, they’re more annoying than funny, like Jimmy Kimmel’s “Tell your kids you ate all their Halloween candy” video challenges of kids freaking out. Ugh.

    • lyn says:

      The commenters are calling the officers “pigs.” So much hate, so little time.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I follow Gothamist because it covers my dd’s neighborhood, good and bad. Since OWS days, the commenters have been been called out for their hypocrisies of anti-capitalism (while tapping away on their Apple computers and smart phones), anti-police (while feeling safe in mommy’s basement) and all the other stupid stuff they say. It’s a small insignificant news source, but watching the tide turn, priceless 🙂

    • DeniseVB says:

      He was invited as an elected official and spoke about taxes. Yawn.

    • piper says:

      I don’t understand all this faux coverage of Scalise – he’s not running for prez. or anything!
      Saw my favorite Gov. Walker on tv talking about his new term coming up and what he wants to accomplish. Also didn’t rule out poss. prez. run. He’d be a heck of a prez. – loves, America, us and the Constitution.
      We’re the only state where the other party, the dems, run to Illinois to score points and / or adult beverages.

      Regarding Hilllary – we donated, made phone calls and voted for her. It’ll be a really cold day in Hell before I’d even consider looking at her. She sold us big time with her behavior at the convention then she along with Bill campaigning for the POS. Personally I feel our decline domestically and abroad is the result of their support.

  16. DeniseVB says:

    Well this is from Gawker and feminist heads are ‘sploding …. (in comments). Why do magazines have to ask every female celebrity if they’re a “feminist” anyhow? She seems happy to me, not to mention she’s bringing home plenty of bacon and enjoys frying it up in a pan 😉


  17. piper says:

    BTW – almost all of the jobs have been filled with foreign labor – legal and illegal immigrants. The suckers are Americans who we know are the great unwashed in obola’s mind and policies.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I don’t trust anything that comes out of this government’s mouth. Or from their news sources and spox’s. spoxx’s. <–trying to be hip, not sure of the spelling. 😉

      Wall Street highs making history are not a good sign for the middle class either, where's the outrage from the OWies?

      • piper says:

        Collecting their dividend checks from their trust funds. My husband used to received calls from these trust fund babies complaining when their allowance or checks were cut bec. of increased taxes or fees. They were still collecting more than the average family makes in a year.

    Filmmaker Jennifer Lee wrote an honest and excellent op-ed about her father who was an NYPD officer and the killings.

    • 49erDweet says:

      We used to have a U.S. Marine officer corps to be proud of. Now they’re history and we have a bunch of pantywaists in uniform running around. Embarrassing.

      • DeniseVB says:

        My husband would agree with that 😉 Semper Fi ! He retired before he was 50 with a lifetime pension as an 0-6 (definitely EARNED surviving 2 VN tours with all the medals short of the MOH). He was one of the lucky ones, and he’s spent most of his life since then supporting his old platoons and companies….raised the funds to install a forever home monument for his fallen troops on the Quantico Museum Memorial Park.

        I think I have the photos on my FB page?

        Sidebar: Back in the day when Clinton took office, someone approached dh, if you want to be a General, take these orders to DC/DOD and kiss Clinton’s ass for a couple of years…oh, and you have to sh*t on the troops to make him look good? He retired after that.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Yep. Knew a Marine Major who looked a General in the eye and told him what he could do to himself in similar situation. Then reported to his CO and resigned. CO was old school and called up Gen, asked what happened to his manly parts? Gen backed down. Maj went back to work.

        • leslie says:

          Just read your two stories (Denise and 49er) and my brother has a similar story. He also retired, before 50, as a Lt. Cl in the USAF.

    • 49erDweet says:

      So that means it wasn’t?

    • 1539days says:

      Gawker just exists to troll. They are naming the “rapist” because of some straw man argument that the right wing has been saying she wasn’t raped. What we find out is that this guy exists, but that he’s not really a Republican and that Dunham just applies the label of “Republican” to anyone she doesn’t like.

      Journalism: Level Obama.

    this is not the year to go to Times Square for New Years Eve.
    just think drunks and protesters in the same place. It will not end well there is an evil atmosphere in the country right now and the least little thing will setoff a firestorm. Some are looking to set that firestorm ablaze

    my first New Years Eve with NJT someone had the idea let everyone ride free from 7pm New Years Eve to 7am New Years Day. then gave the NJT police the night off.
    The 1am Trenton train from NYC had to stop and every station and call the local police. the conductor and brakeman locked themselves in with the engineer. I had to recrew the Raritan train before it ever got out of Newark station. there were stabbings on the train. The state of NJ had an investigation in to what happened.
