1-2-3-4 Hillary wants a race war

By Rick Morris

Here's a swell example of "progressive" bring-us-together racial harmony. The Clintons are actively using the prospect of so-called "black vs. brown" conflict to use Hispanics as a firewall to help stop what would be the first American president of color.

Dare I believe that this is going to be enough to reverse the stupid narrative of "liberals revere black people, conservatives want to drag them by their genitals from the back of moving vehicles" that gets constantly perpetuated? Nah, it's pretty much just the way the world works. Look at how long "waving the bloody shirt" worked after the Civil War. A great deal of elected conservatives were on the wrong side of civil rights legislation in the 1960s, and even though 99% of them are now either deceased or feeding the pigeons in a Florida nursing home right now, the right wing is still going to be paying the price no matter what for a long time to come, fair or not (hint: it's not!). Like so much idiocy from the political and media classes in this country, all you can do is laugh about it if you want to stay sane.
