Were Clintons Plantation Masters?

On the Martin Luther King holiday Hillary Clinton likened the Republican House to a plantation. This was not the first time she drew the comparison as I posted not long after her remark. A NewsMax report tells of the Clinton Plantation in Arkansas under the reign of then Governor Bill. The King holiday in Arkansas was shared with a holiday celebrating General Robert E Lee who fought in the south during the civil war. As you remember from school, the southern states wanted to keep slavery (though this was not the only reason for the war). In addition:

“As governor of Arkansas, Mr. Clinton signed a law in 1987 that says the top blue star in the state flag symbolizes the Confederacy. Then-Gov. Clinton also issued proclamations designating a birthday memorial for Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy.

“In addition, during his 12 years as governor, Mr. Clinton made no effort to overturn a state law that sets aside the Saturday before Easter as Confederate Flag Day.”

In fact, life was so tough for African Americans on Bill and Hillary’s Arkansas plantation that the NAACP sued Mr. Clinton under the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965.

“Plaintiffs offered plenty of proof of monolithic voting along racial lines, intimidation of black voters and candidates and other official acts that made voting harder for blacks,” the Arkansas Gazette reported December 6, 1989.

The paper added: “the evidence at the trial was indeed overwhelming that the Voting Rights Act had been violated.”

This looks like another example of do as I say. It appears that the Clinton’s ideal of racial equality has only been used as a matter of convenience. So when Hillary adds “and you know what I mean” to her plantation remark, she is the one who really knows.
