Left Eating Its Own – Pt. 2,183

From Salon:

At a private Charleston, South Carolina, residence, surrounded by around 100 supporters, Hillary Clinton was interrupted by a Black Lives Matter activist who unfurled a sign quoting the former first lady on so-called “Superpredators,” the widely prevailing 1990s junk-science criminology that the usually African-American juvenile offenders of the time were irredeemable and would undoubtedly grow to terrorize communities.

“I’m not a Superpredator, Hillary Clinton,” the young Black Lives Matter activist said Wednesday night, holding a sign that read: “We have to bring them to heel” – Hillary Clinton. The quote is from a January 25, 1996, speech by Clinton during which she promoted the concept of “community policing” in order to combat the growth of so-called “Superpredators.”

“They are not just gangs of kids anymore,” Clinton said in Keene, New Hampshire. “They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel”:

HC was right then. They are kids who are ‘super-predators’… no conscience, no empathy.

This hasn’t changed. So, what has? Two decades of Political Correctness, fully built up to speed, causing liberal whites to do 180s on issues that, in the mid-90s, they were largely on the opposite side of (e.g., crime; illegal immigration).

“Can you apologize to black people for mass incarceration?” the activist asked Clinton.

Can I talk and then maybe you can listen to what I say,” Clinton replied, as the mostly white crowd began hissing at the heckler.


Isn’t that sentiment (“Hey, let me speak for a second”) a no-no with BLM and its liberal white sympathizers?

The video from yesterday is priceless: the self-righteousness of the BLM activist; the inaction on the part of the rich white libs in attendance (with “this is inappropriate” comments that most that lib whites are willing to do to ‘escort’ her out of the proceedings).

If this happeneed at a Mein Trumpf event, some of his Brownshirts would have escorted the young woman away much sooner and more efficiently.

Watching the Left eat its own, watching the P.C. Bubble about to burst, is a wonderful thing.

Update (2/26/16): In full pandering mode, and wanting to appease the insatiable demands of BLM, Hillary has now apologized for her 1996 comments:

“In that speech, I was talking about the impact violent crime and vicious drug cartels were having on communities across the country and the particular danger they posed to children and families,” Clinton told the Washington Post on Thursday. “Looking back, I shouldn’t have used those words, and I wouldn’t use them today.”

Clinton said she has devoted her life’s work to helping underserved children, too many of whom, she said, are in African-American communities.

“We haven’t done right by them. We need to,” she said. “We need to end the school to prison pipeline and replace it with a cradle-to-college pipeline.”

Now that’s courage.
