A March 12, 2007 article written by acclaimed
Washington columnist Robert Novak sheds a very revealing light on the
true sentiment of Hillary Clinton during the peak of the Civil Rights
Movement. Clinton recently was found to have minimized the great and
monumental strides taken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by stating that
it was Lyndon B. Johnson, then president, who should receive the credit
for the civil rights progress including the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
In an attempt to attract black support Hillary
Clinton regularly shares her 'civil rights experience' during every
speech given to black audiences. Novak writes of one such speech at
Selma's First Baptist Church on the 42nd anniversary of the "bloody
Sunday" freedom march there, where Sen. Clinton declared: "As a young
woman, I had the great privilege of hearing Dr. King speak in Chicago.
The year was 1963. My youth minister from our church took a few of us
down on a cold January night to hear [King]. . . . And he called on us,
he challenged us that evening to stay awake during the great revolution
that the civil rights pioneers were waging on behalf o f a more perfect
union." But Novak's article states that there's a big problem with her
The fact is, in 1963, not only was Hillary
Clinton a republican, but she was also a staunch supporter of republican
Senator Barry Goldwater, well known as a segregationist and one of the
most vocal senators adamently against the passing of the Civil Rights
Act of 1964, which is why he lost in his presidential bid to Lyndon B.
Johnson. Novak writes "...how then could she be a 'Goldwater Girl' in
the next year's presidential election?" He continues, "...she described
herself in her memoirs as 'an active Young Republican' and 'a Goldwater
girl, right down to my cowgirl outfit.'
Novak adds, "As a politically attuned honor
student, she must have known that Goldwater was one of only six
Republican senators who joined Southern Democratic segregationists
opposing the historic voting rights act of 1964 inspired by King.
Hillary headed the Young Republicans at Wellesley College. The
incompatibility of those two positions of 40 years ago was noted to me
(Novak) by Democratic old-timers who were shocked by Sen. Clinton's
temerity in pursuing her presidential candidacy." Novak adds, "What
Hillary Clinton said at Selma is significant because it betrays her
campaign's panicky reaction to the unexpected rise of S en. Obama as a
serious competitor for the Democratic nomination.
Clinton's plans were transformed by the advent
of Obama, an African-American threatening the hard allegiance of black
voters forged by Bill Clinton. On one hand, the Clinton campaign has
attacked Obama and his supporters. On the other hand, she has sought to
solidify her civil rights credentials.
While Clinton was re-inventing her past, her
road to the White House is not going as planned. Instead of a steady
procession to coronation at the Denver convention, she is involved in a
real struggle against credible opponents led by Obama. No wonder she and
her handlers were tempted to imply the existence long ago of a young
lady in Chicago's suburbs who never really existed."
We greatly appreciate Mr. Novak's findings which
bring one main thought to mind. Wake up Black America! DON'T BE FOOLED !
The fact is, despite her falsehoods, Hillary was AGAINST the passing of
the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that Dr. Martin Luther King died for. As a
'Goldwater Girl' she was actually even against Lyndon B. Johnson, the
very person she now gives the credit to for Dr. King getting to the
mountaintop. She has worked extremely hard to hide many truths about her
past, including ordering that her 92 page college thesis that she wrote
at Wellesley College be 'sealed' and unavailable to the public, an order
forced upon the college by Bill Clinton wh ile president, although all
senior thesis' at Wellesley have been available for public reading for
over 100 years, except one....Hillary Rodham Clinton's.
Reports have stated that information in her
'secret thesis' could be the 'Swift Boat' ammo to be used by the
Republican Party against her should she become the nominee. (read more
about 'secret thesis' at MSNBC)
In addition to re-inventing her past, the most
obvious new Billary Clinton strategy is to use 'Token Negroes' like BET
Founder Bob Johnson, Tavis Smiley, and Magic Johnson to name a few, to
attack and discredit Barack Obama, a tactic which many blacks find
additionally offensive, calling these black Clinton cronies 'sell-outs'.
Spread the word....share the facts. The Clinton's have been conning the
black community for a long time and are NOT what they claim to be. I bet
they go home at night, pour some expensive wine, kick their feet up and
just laugh li ke crazy about what big black suckers we are. But now,
it's time to prove them wrong !
