"Contest the black vote at every opportunity. Keep him pinned down there." [View all]

"Contest the black vote at every opportunity. Keep him pinned down there." -- That was Hillary Clinton's campaign strategy in 2008 against Barack Obama as administered by her campaign strategist, Mark Penn. That quote is a directive in an email leaked by a member of her campaign and reported by The Atlantic. As I noted in November, it appeared that Mark Penn has been resurrected to be giving advice to the campaign. And as I reported last summer, Clinton is very willing to use race to divide Democratic voters, as she did in 2008, she has tried again in 2016.

It seemed she had stopped doing this for a while, but as her poll numbers have started to drop, she's started to use these ugly tactics again. And some of her supporters here are:

- Taking narrow areas of photos at Bernie's rally's in the south showing only white people, when other pics of the same rally simply repudiate that idea
- Have pointed out his latest ads show Bernie shaking hands with *gasp* white people, as if he doesn't feature anyone but white people in his ads.

These disgusting attacks seem coordinated with the race-baiting attacks by David Brock, former Right Wing Mudslinger supposedly "turned" by the Clintons to doing "good" and now running her Super PAC.

The only difference between now and 2008 is that her competitor is white and they are trying to make him appear to be the racist. Claiming Bernie is a racist has already been pointed out by many Democratic pundits and even some of Hillary's supporters and endorsers as completely wrong and inappropriate. I suggest that unfounded claim of racism against Bernie on this site be met with appropriate discipline and with an automatic hide. There are some things that should be simply off limits. Calling Bernie a racists is one of them.
