Courageous Anti-Trump Protesters, and Poisonous Preaching by Clinton

After thousands of protesters forced a Trump rally to be shut down in Chicago on March 11, Hillary Clinton issued a statement saying:

We all have our differences and we know many people across the country feel angry. We need to address that anger together. All of us, no matter what party we belong to or what views we hold, should not only say loudly and clearly that violence has no place in our politics, we should use our words and deeds to bring America together. Last year in Charleston, South Carolina an evil man walked into a church and murdered 9 people. The families of those victims came together and melted hearts in the statehouse and the confederate flag came down. That should be the model we strive for to overcome painful divisions in our country.

Clinton piles on to the outrageous message Obama delivered after a white supremacist mass murderer, who with the intention of starting a genocidal “race war,” murdered nine Black people attending Bible study. In a crime on top of a crime, Obama said: “Oh, but God works in mysterious ways. God has different ideas. He [the racist murderer] didn’t know he was being used by God.... The alleged killer could have never anticipated the way the families of the fallen would respond when they saw him in court in the midst of unspeakable grief, with words of forgiveness.” Here we had the “leader of the free world” saying the murders of nine Black people by a racist was “part of God’s plan” and that it was a good thing that people (who, it has to be said, were horribly misguided by religion) forgave the racist murderer.

Clinton couldn’t even bring herself to call Trump a racist when asked about this in the recent Miami debate. And she can’t call the murderer in Charleston a racist—he’s an “evil man.”

Then she says the families of the victims who forgave the murderer “melted hearts in the statehouse and the confederate flag came down.” Melted hearts my ass! The confederate flag—inseparable from and founded on slavery, oppression, and the Ku Klux Klan—didn’t come down because Southern politicians had their “hearts melted” when they saw forgiveness. The fucking flag came down because people who were outraged, protested and even tore down that flag; the system’s racist ass was exposed and the legitimacy of the system was at stake. And for Trump and his fascist followers, melt their hearts??!!

Clinton dares to tell people who are courageously going up against Trump and all the vicious hatred he’s whipping up against Blacks, immigrants, Muslims—that they should come together with the racist and fascist Trump supporters to “address that anger together.” And as for striving to “overcome painful divisions in our country”—these are divisions are between non-thinking, racists and fascist brownshirts on the one hand, and those who are fighting against racism, police murder, discrimination, and all the many crimes of the system.

Hillary Clinton needs to shut the fuck up!
