"Bill Clinton traded verbal shots in a feisty 15-minute exchange with Black Lives Matter protesters in Philadelphia on Thursday, as he defended his wife`s presidential bid.
The protesters shouted that `black youth are not super predators,` taking issue with a phrase then-first lady Hillary Clinton used in a 1996 speech about violent crime committed by young people. They heckled Bill Clinton for the 1994 crime bill he signed into law as president that cracked down on gangs but also put more non-violent offenders in prison for longer stays.
`You are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter,` the former president told protesters."
I can`t remember ever praising Bill Clinton, but I commend him for the way he dealt with Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters who interrupted his speech on behalf of his wife, Hillary Clinton.
Clinton didn`t treat them with kid gloves lest he appeared racist, he unloaded on them with a can of rhetorical whoopass:
"I don`t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack, and sent them out in the streets to murder other African-American children," an angry Clinton shouted.
Black people aren`t super predators, but the gang leaders who preyed and victimized their own communities by introducing crack cocaine and ushering in an epic reign of violence are super predators. They are animals who needed to be locked up forever, for the good of society, especially for the good of black communities.
Contrast the way that Bill Clinton dispatched the BLM racist agitators with the way Bernie Sanders and Martin O`Malley coddled them and allowed them to take over their campaign events.
Bill Clinton is spot on, BLM activists defend thugs that prey on black citizens. BLM is a scourge and a cancer and it must be excised not celebrated.
