Hillary's Agricultural Perspective

Hillary Clinton talked about how congress is being "run like a plantation."

Sen. Hillary Clinton on Monday blasted the Bush administration as "one of the worst" in U.S. history and compared the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to a plantation where dissenting voices are squelched.

Tonight on O'Reilly, Al Sharpton tried to get us to dismiss her comments as simply illustrating a point. Considering Democrats' abysmal record on actually advancing civil rights, I don't think she really has room to imply a bunch of beer-bellied good 'ol boys are lording over the country.

The fact of the matter is that Clinton could have used any number of examples to get her viewpoint through to people. This was a calculated comment to help bolster the view of Republicans as a party full of whites who don't care about blacks. When you look at the record of what Democrats have said and what they have done, you can plainly see that their objective is not to help blacks gain economic and social equality, but to keep them dependent on the government so they can keep getting reelected.

My question is why aren't liberals more honest about these 'outrages?' Trent Lott makes some rhetorical nice comments about a man turning 100 years old, and is labeled a racist! Hillary Clinton makes directly and obviously racist claims against the Republicans, she skates by without incident. Unbelievable.
