Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton are currently at war over who is the most racist.
Trump has repeatedly been called out as a racist by Hillary Clinton and the leftist media.
His pleas to minority voters at his recent rallies have been mocked by Democrats.
“We will promote the values of tolerance, justice and acceptance,” Trump has said to rallies of supporters. “We will steadfastly reject bigotry and hatred and oppression in all of its forms.”
The Clinton camp has responded by more-or-less calling Trump a racist, for his policy opinions on immigration, terrorism, and culture.
According to The Washington Post, Clinton said in a speech last week that Trump has a history of bigoted discriminatory dealings in his business, and he “is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and offering a dog whistle to his most hateful supporters.”
Clinton called Trump “sinister” in the speech and also last week released a video showing white supremacists and KKK members expressing their support for Trump, presumably to associate Trump with the white supremacists and compare his stance to that of the KKK.
Clinton also said, “Now, some people will say that his bluster and bigotry is just overheated campaign rhetoric — an outrageous person saying outrageous things for attention. But look at the policies Trump has proposed: They would put prejudice into practice [emphasis added].”
But Trump’s response to this name-calling was two-fold.
First, he criticized the Democrat mantra, “you’re racist”: “It’s the oldest play in the Democratic playbook. When Democratic policies fail, they are left with only this one tired argument: You’re racist, you’re racist, you’re racist. It’s a tired, disgusting argument. And it’s so totally predictable.”
And second, he revealed Hillary Clinton’s own not-so-closeted racist past, by releasing a video on his Instagram account, under handle @realdonaldtrump, whose transcript begins with the following three quotes:
Hillary Clinton, 1994:
“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.”

“You called out President Clinton for defending Secretary Clinton’s use of the term ‘Super Predator’ back in the 90s when she supported the crime bill. Why did you call him out?”
“Because it was a racist term and everybody knew it was a racist term.”
In the 1994 Clinton video footage shown in the Instagram video, Clinton was defending her husband President Bill Clinton’s crime justice bill, calling it “a very well thought out crime bill which is both smart and tough.” Over the past 22 years, the crime bill has resulted in the largest incarceration of black people in history.
Bernie Sanders has criticized the Clintons for this “racist deed” openly over the past year.
In addition to Trump’s Instagram post and rally replies, other media outlets have been focusing on Clinton’s own hypocrisy over her lifetime in the public eye.
In an ABC interview just after 9/11 with Sam Donaldson, Clinton also recommended tightening security: “We have to do whatever it takes to keep our people safe.” Donaldson responded, “Including profiling, Senator?” And Clinton did not rule it out, by responding, “Well, I think we have to do whatever it takes Sam… We are in a war situation, and we’re going to have to do things that people do in times of war… We have to make trade-offs in convenience, in our freedom of movement, without undercutting or losing our way of life and our values, which are really what make America special and great, and we can’t ever let anyone undermine that.”
Breitbart also describes other major prejudiced slip-ups over the years by Clinton, including her obvious adoption of an African-American accent when speaking in front of substantively black audiences (“I don’t feel no ways taaahrd”), her minimization of Martin Luther King, Jr. when it suited her in the 2008 race against Barack Obama, her referral to one of Obama’s contributors as a slumlord, and her joining in a racist joke about “colored people’s time,” which suggested black people are always running late.
The Political Insider reported Trump’s further response to Clinton’s slander, this time more in a tone of defending his own position:
“Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the Democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration. I said ‘Mexico is sending’ — I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise, I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.
She is desperate, she is sad, and she is obviously very nervous when she has to revert to issues that have already been settled, given the absolute accuracy of my statement. She speaks about “my tone” and that’s the problem with our country’s leaders. They are more worried about tone than results! It’s not about being nice — it’s about being competent.
Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by me that is totally clear and obviously very much accepted by the public as true. I am honored, however, that she is attacking me, instead of Jeb Bush. Obviously she knows that Jeb is no longer her real competition. The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump.”
A politician who has been brutally honest, often politically incorrect, and at times even socially unacceptable in conversations about cultural erosion, secure borders, national security, national pride and heritage?
Or a hypocrite who criticizes her opponents for adopting the same policies she’s touted in the past?LIKE our Facebook page: SourcesNews
