    Hillary Was AGAINST the Civil Rights Act of 1964 While a Republican and 'Goldwater Girl' ​


    Read This.....THEN SPREAD THE WORD !!!!​

    A March 12, 2007 article written by acclaimed Washington columnist Robert Novak sheds a very revealing light on the t rue sentiment of Hillary Clinton during the peak of the Civil Rights Movement. Clinton recently was found to have minimized the great and monumental strides taken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by stating that it was Lyndon B. Johnson, then president, who should receive the credit for the civil rights progress including the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    In an attempt to attract black support Hillary Clinton regularly shares her 'civil rights experience' during every speech given to black audiences. Novak writes of one such speech at Selma's First Baptist Church on the 42nd anniversary of the 'bloody Sunday' freedom march there, where Sen. Clinton declared: 'As a young woman, I had the great privilege of hearing Dr. King speak in Chicago. The year was 1963. My youth minister from our church took a few of us down on a cold January night to hear [King]. . . . And he called on us, he challenged us that evening to stay awake during the great revolution that the civil rights pioneers were waging on behalf of a more perfect union.' But Novak's article states that there's a big problem with her statement.

    The fact is, in 1963, not only was Hillary Clinton a republican, but she was also a staunch supporter of republican Senator Barry Goldwater, well known as a segregationist and one of the most vocal senators adamently against the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which is why he lost in his presidential bid to Lyndon B. Johnson. Novak writes '...how then could she be a 'Goldwater Girl' in the next year's presidential election?' He continues, '...she described herself in her memoirs as 'an active Young Republican' and 'a Goldwater girl, right down to my cowgirl outfit.'
    Novak adds, 'As a politically attuned honor student, she must have known that Goldwater was one of only six Republican senators who joined Southern Democratic segregationists opposing the historic voting rights act of 1964 inspired by King. Hillary headed the Young Republicans at Wellesley College. The incompatibility of those two positions of 40 years ago was noted to me (Novak) by Democratic old-timers who were shocked by Sen. Clinton's temerity in pursuing her presidential candidacy.' Novak adds, 'What Hillary Clinton said at Selma is significant because it betrays her campaign's panicky reaction to the unexpected rise of Sen. Obama as a serious competitor for the Democratic nomination.

    Clinton's plans were transformed by the advent of Obama, an African-American threatening the hard allegiance of black voters forged by Bill Clinton. On one hand, the Clinton campaign has attacked Obama and his supporters. On the other hand, she has sought to solidify her civil rights credentials.

    While Clinton was re-inventing her past, her road to the White House is not going as planned. Instead of a steady procession to coronation at the Denver convention, she is involved in a real struggle against credible opponents led by Obama. No wonder she and her handlers were tempted to imply the existence long ago of a young lady in Chicago's suburbs who never really existed.'

    We greatly appreciate Mr. Novak's findings which bring one main thought to mind. Wake up Black America! DON'T BE FOOLED ! The fact is, despite her falsehoods, Hillary was AGAINST the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that Dr. Martin Luther King died for. As a 'Goldwater Girl' she was actually even against Lyndon B. Johnson, the very person she now gives the credit to for Dr. King getting to the mountaintop. She has worked extremely hard to hide many truths about her past, including ordering that her 92 page college thesis that she wrote at Wellesley College be 'sealed' and unavailable to the public, an order forced upon the college by Bill Clinton while president, although all senior thesis' at Wellesley have been available for public reading for over 100 years, except one....Hillary Rodham Clinton's.

    Reports have stated that information in her 'secret thesis' could be the 'Swift Boat' ammo to be used by the Republican Party against her should she become the nominee. (read more about 'secret thesis' at MSNBC)

    In addition to re-inventing her past, the most obvious new Hillary Clinton strategy is to use 'Token Negroes' like BET Founder Bob Johnson, Tavis Smiley, and Magic Johnson to name a few, to attack and discredit Barack Obama, a tactic which many blacks find additionally offensive, calling these black Clinton cronies 'sell-outs'. Spread the word....share the facts. The Clinton's have been conning the black community for a long time and are NOT what they claim to be. I bet they go home at night, pour some expensive wine, kick their feet up and just laugh like crazy about what big black suckers we are. But now, it's time to prove them wrong !

    Houston, WE have a problem!

    I hear you brother, I am reminded that Reagan was once a democrat, brought the force down on the Panthers during his California governership. He went on to become the Republican that all other repupbs wish to emulate. An example of a tiger changing stripes? I don't know. I do know that Robert Novak is not concerned about fairness in opportunity for brothers and sisters,he can care less. As a matter of fact he too may have been a supporter of the supremacist, so his words about Hillary are suspect, but at the same time to be expected.

    My issues with Hillary run deep,I have no quarrel with the specifics of his column, but the one caveat that keeps me focused is that Novak hates Hillary! My hope that 'race' becomes a non-issue is a pipedream. So where do we go from here? When confronted with a choice such as this, and hearing the Repub nominee state he will appoint more Alito or Roberts to the supreme court, and both of these justices believe that blacks have practiced in-vitro discrimination against whites....I will have to take my chances. Paradigmatic quandry!:help: Peace!
    PS: I would still like to see Obama/Edwards...Obama/Clinton,

    Why vote for any of them? Don't you know that the voting system is rigged and presidents are selected and not elected. Obama is a stooge and Billary is evil as hell.
