WaPo: Hillary Clinton: Trump should be impeached but that alone won’t remove white supremacy from America

Last week’s attack is cause for grief and outrage. But it should not be cause for shock.

My essay in the @WashingtonPost .

It won't end til all the Angry Old White Men (and their heifers) die-off. Which blissfully happens every day.

R1, I've been waiting for the "angry old men" to die off. But there's always more coming up to take their place. The angry old men taught their kids to be the same way. And their kids radicalized other people.

I remember being a teenager and walking my dog in my neighborhood. I saw two unsupervised white boys in their yard. One looked to be about five; the other looked to be about three. Their black neighbor (a man who appeared to be in his 50s) was outside doing yard work next door. The five-year-old boy said to his little brother, "look, there's the [n-word]". The black neighbor, who heard it, smiled and waved at the boys. He knew where the boys had learned the word, and they were too young to understand its impact. He showed them only warmth and kindness in an attempt to counteract whatever their parents were teaching them about him.

This shit gets passed down from generation to generation. The school system needs to include diversity training as part of its curriculum. Kids need to be taught to respect people who are different, they need to be taught NOT to bully and not to sexually harass or assault other kids. The schools need to teach empathy, because so many parents fail to teach it.

Over my resigned body!

Hillary is correct. Obama is correct that him (as a black man) being POTUS really caused resentment.

Trump didn't create white supremacy. It existed and was brought to the surface when Trump came into power.

Trump will do anything to 'win'. He used to be a Democrat. He'll morph into anything he needs to be.

Hilary Clinton doesn’t get to tell me I shouldn’t feel shock.

R2 is right. There were several GenX and Boomer parents there with their kids at the insurrection. There are a lot of Millennials who are alt-right, just look at all the podcasters.

The idea that these bigots are generational and will die off is a fallacy. It's just not true.

This woman couldn’t be bothered to visit the Midwest, losing the election to a game show host who bragged about rape. I don’t want to hear from her. This is her fault.

How odd that our Parler-linking ALL CAPS hysterical OP, who has been posting for something like 28 hours straight now, would start a thread about Hillary Clinton that would lead to shitstain trolls like r8 blaming the attempted coup on her.

I mean, it's such a shock that the OP would post something that ostensibly looks like a legitimate concern, but which is quickly revealed to just be trollbait meant to deflect blame off of Trump and the GOP.

She is always race baiting but when she isn't using black as a weapon they are just "super predators".

Please stop giving a platform to this irrelevant woman.

Bumping to give a platform to this great woman. All her predictions of what would happen if Trump became President have come true.

by Anonymousreply 1201/11/2021

R12 And your point is? Any intelligent and informed American could have made the same predictions.

Gee, not to state the obvious or anything. Is she getting dementia?

by Anonymousreply 1401/11/2021

She was excoriated for making those observations, R13. She laid out exactly what would happen if Trump was elected and she was right about all of it, and sour old GOP sympathizers like you wouldn't admit it if your lives depended on it. "She called people Deplorables! She didn't visit my pitiful square state! I'll rewrite history to make it seem like she was just stating the obvious because she's a mean mommy and I hate her! Waaah!"

Whatever. You can shitpost on an anonymous forum about how Hillary Clinton is the real problem all you want, it doesn't make it true. It just wastes your time. But I can't imagine you were doing anything useful with your time, anyway.

Guess again. I said she was irrelevant. That doesn't make me a Republican sympathizer, sour, old or otherwise. If you knew how I feel about Republicans you'd realize how stupid a statement that was for you to make.

Your vitriol is excessive, and your emotional response leads me to believe that you're female, so stop acting out stereotypes.

You're wasting your time on this shithole site just like I am.

Many school systems do have some form of this but if it's optional, the people who need it aren't taking it.

Hell, many colleges require some form of this and many people take it to get it over with and never look back.

R18, diversity and tolerance needs to be taught in kindergarten. I remember my curriculum included some special topics. In addition to the alphabet and numbers, we learned to tie our shoes, and we also learned to memorize our parents' names and phone number. In kindergarten, they need to teach who MLK was, and they need to play his speech, and explain what it means. They need to explain that there are all types of families. Some families have just one parent. Other families have a mom and a dad, while some have two moms or two dads. And no one type of family or skin color is better than any other. There should be anti-bullying video games to encourage being nice. Calling another kid "dummy", "fatso", "midget", "loser" or other demeaning terms should result in suspension for the third offense. Nip the bullying and harassment in the bud before it gets bad.

Of course, the repubs will label this as "liberal indoctrination". Some of them (the ones who don't rely on the schools for free meals and babysitting) will withdraw their kids and homeschool them. But, a lot of kids will
