Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has gone on a multi-state rant against rival Donald Trump, and Republicans in general, accusing them of being racists pandering to black people to get their votes and often citing the Confederate Flag as “proof” of the racism of the right.
Before Clinton adopted this holier-than-thou routine, however, she apparently didn’t take much offense to the Confederate Flag, a flag which has since magically become the symbol for racism in America in the eyes of liberals, The Gateway Pundit reported.
In fact, her husband did nothing during his 12 years as governor to repeal an Arkansas law that stated, “The Saturday immediately preceding Easter Sunday of each year is designated as ‘Confederate Flag Day’ in this state.”
Then-Gov. Bill Clinton even went so far as to commemorate one of the stars on the Arkansas state flag in honor of the Confederate States of America, The Daily Caller reported.
“The blue star above the word “ARKANSAS” is to commemorate the Confederate States of America,” read a line of Act 116 that Clinton signed into law while he was in office.
While we know that the Confederate Flag — more properly known as the battle flag of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia — is not a symbol of racism, most of the people voting for Clinton believe that it is, yet they are supporting a woman who for years didn’t object to the very thing she has now claimed symbolizes racism in America.
Hillary Clinton is hypocrisy personified. She lies, cheats, steals and sells favors, yet her people still blindly follow her.
Perhaps those voting for Clinton should take a look at her actual record, not the heavily edited one she shows off. Then they might realize that they aren’t supporting some idealist — they are supporting someone who will do whatever it takes to amass and hold onto power.
