Hillary Clinton plays the ‘Klan card’ against Donald Trump and his supporters

August 25, 2016

 Yep, she went there. Today Hillary Clinton played the Ku Klux Klan card against Donald Trump and his supporters. First she released a new ad and then followed it up with a speech about the so-called alt-right. Here is more:

A video released Thursday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign makes the case that Donald Trump is the candidate of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

“The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in,” a robed man identified as the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says at the top of the video, followed by images of a Confederate flag fluttering in the wind, Trump waving after a speech, and a man performing a Hitler salute at what appears to be a Trump rally.

In the video, an unidentified voice labels the alt-right as “the sort of dressed-up-in-suits version of the neo-Nazi and white supremacist movements.”

The video specifically attacks newly hired Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon over his previous job running Breitbart News, widely considered to be the most prominent alt-right media outlet. An unnamed member of a CNN panel attacks Bannon as “a campaign chair that ran a website that has become a field day for the alt-right, which is racist and all sorts of other ‘ists.’”

  The Trump campaign quickly damned the video:

“Hillary Clinton and her campaign went to a disgusting new low today as they released a video tying the Trump Campaign with horrific racial images,” Burns said in the statement emailed out by the Trump campaign. “This type of rhetoric and repulsive advertising is revolting and completely beyond the pale. I call on Hillary Clinton to disavow this video and her campaign for this sickening act that has no place in our world.”

  Regular readers of America’s Watchtower know that I am not supporting Donald Trump in the election (I support Gary Johnson) but this video is way over the line. First, the video shows a man who claims to be an Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan but we do not know who this person is and if he is who he claims to be. Second, we have no idea if the man giving the Nazi salute was actually at a Trump event, we are just told that it appears as if he is. This is even low for a Clinton.

  But while we do not know the legitimacy of the people included in this video we do know that former Democratic Senator Robert Byrd was indeed a former Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan and when he passed away Hillary Clinton spoke glowingly about her “friend and mentor.” I shared this video once before in this post but in light of today’s events I thought it would be relevant to post this video again.

  When Donald Trump received the endorsement of David Duke he rightfully came under fire for not immediately disavowing the endorsement but he eventually did. He did not handle that situation well in my opinion but at least he never praised him or called him a “friend and mentor.”

    Trump during a speech in which he directly appealed to the black voters. The Dem. can’t let them leave the plantation, so they have to counter Trump. So as always their answer is scare the black voter.

      Yeah, there has been about a week of outreach to the minority vote by Trump and now it looks like Hillary is trying to counter it. She must be worried about it somewhat if she is willing to bring it to this level. This could backfire on her, we will have to wait and see.

    I actually listened to her rant this afternoon. This is what desperation will get you. It was so far over the top that I would think for most it came off as a parody. Now seeing her ad, it seems even more so. Hooded men, what in the world.

      It does seem like a desperate move, doesn’t it? This has a chance of backfiring on her, at least with those in the middle who are undecided.

      It DID seem a parody, Bunk! It just continues to amaze me at what her followers will swallow. And look out because it is gonna get waaaaaay worse, well, is she doesn’t seize-out on us all first. Guess that wasn’t very nice… 😉

        I heard some of the speech today Lorra and I think you nailed it, this seemed like a parody and not something to be taken seriously. But of course she was serious and judging from the reaction of the crowd it sounds like they are buying it.

        Steve, her followers would eat glass thier or so hungry for leadership…they just haven’t figured out HER leadership, being a third Obama term and all, is a one-way-ticket to hell in a hand-basket! Most have one thing on their mind, keeping the hand-outs coming but with no true clue just what that entails or what the effects of their Government-Sucking is doing to this country. Heck, most don’t give two-chits what it will cost, as long as it doesn’t cost THEM. Eye Roll….

        That’s exactly right Lorra. most of her supporters have been bought and paid for. Even if they cannot stand her they have to vote for her.

    Trump during one of his speeches appealed to blacks to vote for him. This must have set off alarm bells in the Hillary campaign. They need the black vote to win the rigged election. They created the Alt-right boogeyman to scare the blacks. She needs them to stay on the Democratic plantation and vote for her.

    Hillary GREEN SCREEN Fake Crowd?

    If you read the vid description on utube it tells how Hilly’s health isn’t good and that she probably filmed this months ago when she was feeling better.

        Did the Clinton Campaign bait the Alt-Right? The speech is in part about conspiracy theorist, so why not have a few cell phones with a previously taken picture showing on their screens. First take a picture of an empty stage and second then display the picture as if you are taking a picture of Hillary leaving the stage. Voila!

        Everybody needs to take a deep breath and step back from the ledge.

        I think she is trying to bait the alt-right into violence so she can say I told you so, but so far the violence is all coming from the left.

    For those who didn’t see this vid, they might find the Hilly, abortion and KKK connection interesting: Hillary KKK Klan

      She opened up a can of worms by going there, unfortunately the MSM isn’t going to mention any of this. Luckily this will make its way through the internet.

        ‘Bleached’ is an interesting word to use. The NSA has a copy of her emails and she has connections that could delete those too I’m sure. BUT, the thought of whitewashing bring to mind once again the corrupt: ‘Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.’ Matt 23:27 KJB
