Before the royal screw-up that was GeeShrubya, there was Bill Clinton, royally screwing over the country, yet, he managed to make most of us like it, or at least, accept it.

Now, since his fellow Blue Dog, Blanche Lincoln, is in a dogfight to retain her Senate seat, Will Bill believes that since Black folk revoked his honorary Negro card during his wife’s campaign for the Presidential nomination, he’s just going to go full out into cracker-mode, and dog out the base that got his ass to the dance TWICE.  From Chris in Paris, via Americablog:

Using unusually vivid language to describe the threat against Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Clinton urged the voters who nurtured his career to resist outside forces bent on making an example out of the two-term Democratic incumbent.

He pounded the podium with Lincoln at his side, warning that national liberal and labor groups wanted to make her a “poster child” in the June 8 Senate run-off to send a message about what happens to Democrats who don’t toe the party line.

“This is about using you and manipulating your votes to terrify members of Congress and members of the Senate,” Clinton said in the gym of a small historically black college here.

Clinton must think he still has a Black Card, and those who have benefitted from his policies must have slipped him one on the side, to be talking this noise on the Campus of an HBCU.  Far worse, are those at the HBCU who ALLOWED HIM THE PLATFORM to spew this nonsense and continue to screw over hard-working Americans.

Lest y’all forgot who Bill Clinton is – no,  he isn’t the First Black POTUS anymore (he never was, in my book), and just because he threw down on the sax on Arsenio Hall’s show in the early 1990s, ate Big Mama’s Peach Cobbler and Fried Chicken; all I’ll say is WE GOT TAKEN.

Bill Clinton is the guy who made “three strikes” the law of the land and imprisoned more of our brothers of color for misdemeanor incidents, like stealing a pizza or a loaf of bread.  If you’re on your third strike, you’re going to do 25-to-life for stealing that pizza.

Or, if you have a joint, you might do 20-to-life hard time; but if you have a kilo of powder, a slap on the wrist.  No matter; Clinton did more to expand the prison industrial complex than any POTUS before him.

Clinton ushered in discrimination with his weak-kneed approaches to gays in the military (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell should have been for the homophobic); affirmative action challenges and effective defanging of Civil Rights enforcement policies on his watch.  Some shyt you can’t lay on George Bush – in fact, I’ll go a step further and say he just picked up where Clinton LEFT OFF.

Wanna know why anti-affirmative action challenges cropped up by Ward Connerly? Clinton gave him the opening when he didn’t order the Justice Department to cut off Federal funding from state agencies dependent on it when Proposition 209 passed.  As Chief Executive, Clinton had the authority to challenge that Proposition, but because it was an ELECTION YEAR, every department in the government rolled over and played DEAD.

Bill Clinton virtually dismantled the Labor Unions across this country. Problem is, the Labor Unions WERE THE LAST TO KNOW THEY WERE HAD.  And this was after Clinton took their campaign donations.

And now, THIS.

He is who we NOW think HE IS.  And it’s not good.  And until he showed his ass during his wife’s campaign, I didn’t really have a good feeling about him, especially since I was working in the trenches during his administration and watched all of us in civil rights enforcenment get defanged and turned into paper tigers who roared loud but did nothing.

Anyone he’s for – WE SHOULD BE AGAINST.  Supporting Blanche Lincoln is like supporting Harold Ford or Artur Davis.  And y’all know how I feel about THOSE TWO TRAITORS.
