There’s something funny about this whole controversy over the confederate flag – and that’s the Clintons.
Well maybe not funny. Depressing, enraging, annoying, and so forth might be better words.
To elaborate, Hillary Clinton has come out in favor of taking down the flag. “It shouldn’t fly anywhere“, she’s said.
But that goofy husband of hers has a bit of a history with the Confederacy. You see, in 1987 when he was governor of Arkansas he signed a bill that, according to the Huffington Post and WSJ, as well as many other outlets, honored the confederacy.
From the Huffington Post article linked above:
“But the former secretary of state, who is now running for president, is not the first Clinton to weigh in on the matter of the Confederacy. The state flag of Arkansas sports 25 white stars and four blue ones. And in 1987, while serving as governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton signed a bill affirming that one of those blue stars is there in honor of the Confederate States of America.”
Here’s a direct link to the bill.
You see, the Clintons are complete opportunists. If it helps them affirm support in one state at one time, they will do it. If the tides are turning, they will flip their positions. Which one was their real position? Who knows.
Check out what Hillary said about gay-marriage while running for Senate:
“Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.”
Today? Totally the opposite!
How about in 2003 when she said “We’ve got to do several things and I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants.” Today? Let’s expand their executive protections past what even President Obama did!
Her and husband have always played this game. It’s about winning. They don’t have principals. They don’t care. If the scandals over the Clinton Foundation teaches us anything it’s that they are all about money and power. Nothing else.
Even fellow Democrats realize it’s all about poll numbers instead of principals –
