Speaking to a foreign audience, Hillary Clinton Sunday defended NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem, saying they are doing it to protest racism in the criminal justice system and counter “dog whistles” by President Trump to his base.
Hillary was promoting her new book at Southbank Centre’s London Literature Festival:
You have to resist what are very clear, what we call, “dog whistles” to that base. That’s what black athletes kneeling was all about. That’s not against our anthem or our flag. Actually, kneeling is a reverent position. It was to demonstrate in a peaceful way against racism and injustice in our criminal system.
So here we have someone who was very nearly president approving of people disrespecting the flag and the National Anthem. Meantime, she’s confirming her “deplorables” remark by suggesting Trump’s base is comprised of a bunch of racists. And doing it to the applause of a foreign audience.
Hillary Clinton’s election would have marked the potentially irreversible final step in the march of socialism that is trampling our nation, and the end of traditional notions of American civic pride. Trump voters understood that Hillary and her backers would have eviscerated whatever is left of the culture. We are extremely fortunate this person never became president.
