On Saturday, Hillary Clinton attempted to inject some much-needed excitement into her presidential bid with a campaign speech to a surprisingly small number of New Yorkers, almost all of whom were white. Although whether they self-identify as white is anybody's guess.
Mixed in with Hillary's standard populist sloganeering about despising Wall Street and the evil rich who are writing the checks for her campaign, her Foundation, and her pantsuit collection, Mrs. Clinton took time to humanize herself by making reference to the inspiration she's found in her mother's miserable life.
As a child, Hillary's mother was abandoned by her father at age 8 and sent to live with nightmarish grandparents until she ran away and became a housemaid at age 14 (a job option no longer available to actual American citizens of any age).
In her autobiography, which we highly doubt Hillary has even read, it says "I thought often of my own mother’s neglect and mistreatment at the hands of her parents and grandparents, and how other caring adults filled the emotional void to help her.”
In other words, don't look to your family for support and guidance - look to the (ahem) "caring adults" of the Big Government "village" which Queen Hillary wants to rule over to help exorcise the demons of her own criminally dysfunctional family.
BONUS: LITTLE WHITE LIE
Speaking of Hillary's dysfunctional family, we all know that Bill Clinton was our nation's first all-white black president. Now, we know who the second one is: Rachel Dolezal, president of the Spokane NAACP.
According to Ms. Dolezal's parents, she's not black (as she's claimed on various legal documents) so much as crazy and entirely white. Not that there's anything wrong with that, other than being descended from whip-wielding slave owners and enjoying scads of filthy white privilege and being unable to clap on the beat.
Much like the puzzle of whether a tree which falls in the forest when no one is around still makes a sound, the media is now being forced to consider whether telling a white woman that she's not black is still racist. So far, particularly on MSNBC, the answer seems to be "yes."
