New Hillary Clinton ad does not pull any punches.

Courtesy of Politico: 

A new video released Thursday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign makes the case that Donald Trump is the candidate of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis. 

“The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in,” says a robed man identified as the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan at the top of the video, followed by the images of a Confederate flag fluttering in the wind, Trump waving after a speech, and a man performing a Hitler salute at what appears to be a Trump rally 

The video’s release comes on the same day that Clinton is scheduled to deliver a speech on the so-called “alt-right” political movement that has formed much of Trump’s base from the beginning of his campaign. In the video, an unidentified voice labels the alt-right as “the sort of dressed-up-in-suits version of the neo-Nazi and white supremacist movements.” 

Holy shit balls!

Now we're talking!

I think the scariest thing about this ad is that it is almost precisely what I would have created to go after Donald Trump. And I have no boundaries.

Clinton then followed the ad up with a speech today:

In her most direct critique yet connecting the Trump campaign to white nationalists and the conservative fringe, Mrs. Clinton is framing Mr. Trump’s run as unprecedented in modern politics. 

“He is taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party,” she said. 

Asserting that a racially charged and “paranoid fringe” had always existed in politics, she said, “It’s never had the nominee of a major party stoking it, encouraging it and giving it a national megaphone. Until now.”

“The de facto merger between Breitbart and the Trump campaign represents a landmark achievement for the alt-right,” Mrs. Clinton said. “A fringe element has effectively taken over the Republican Party.”

Oh hell yeah! People SHOULD be talking about the fact that Trump's base is made up almost entirely of white supremacists and xenophobes. In fact that should have been the tactic from the very beginning. 

Hillary Clinton is finally playing hardball. And this first pitch went right for his groin.

Actually considering how diminutive the target was it's surprising she hit it with such precision.

    Reading that one sentence brings back memories of the hate Sarah Palin generated against Sen Obama in 2008. The KKK, the Nazis, the rednecks and all the other hate groups believed in and what Sarah Palin said just like these hate mongering racists believes in Trump.

    Hillary has been maligned, misjudged and denigrated for a very long time because some men are afraid of her. Not because she's a bad person, but because she's a smart, astute, capable woman. Who needs balls when you've got brains? Go Hillary. Plus, small dicks are much easier targets.

    And in this moment, Hillary did not shy away from making the most straightforward assessment and blunt criticisms of Trump and his long history of “paranoia and prejudice.” To the contrary, she stepped up and did not hold back.

      Isn't it likely that Trump's dithering over the immigration policy is because the campaign doesn't know what to do to cover up Melabnorma's illegal immigrant status while being a nudie and an escort for pay and her first marriage?

      Let's hope Politico and RawStory are going to get the goods on Melabnorma at just the right time for Hillary to use it to best advantage.

      this void and her way of telling Americans to fuck off is stupid, inept and loser material. It is zero help for Mr. Trump. Zero and minus, minus, minus.

    In another crazed, irrational and disjointed appearance by former Governor and current idiot Sarah Palin, she ranted about illegal aliens and how amnesty encourages them to break more laws. She and Bolling very gently come around to trying to persuade Trump that he should stick to his anti-Amnesty guns.

    Also she’s angry illegal aliens get free Happy Meals.

    ...Hey Sarah Palin, any thoughts on the phrase "standard retard"? I mean, you and Ann are fighting on the same team, I just thought you might have some input on this.

    Why ISIS Is Rooting for Trump

    ...One might expect ISIS to view his candidacy with apprehension. However, interviews with ISIS supporters and recent defectors suggest just the opposite: jihadists are rooting for a Trump presidency because they believe that he will lead the United States on a path to self-destruction. Last week, an ISIS spokesman wrote on the ISIS-affiliated Telegram channel, Nashir, “I ask Allah to deliver America to Trump.” Meanwhile, an ISIS supporter posted on one of the numerous jihadist “channels” hosted by the Telegram messaging application, “The ‘facilitation’ of Trump’s arrival in the White House must be a priority for jihadists at any cost!!!”

      When asked why Clinton has not yet been shown in an ISIS video, a recent defector, Adel, said it is because “she never says anything bad about Muslims.” Indeed, it is far more difficult for ISIS to vilify Clinton, who routinely insists that “Islam is not our adversary” and “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people.”

      Interviews and analysis of ISIS-related chatter on Twitter suggests that the group welcomes Trump’s belligerent rhetoric as a harbinger of the apocalypse it has been waiting for. As one Twitter user wrote, “This is the time of Trump. . . . They see it as Armageddon and we see it as Dabiq.” Another said, “Congratulations to us on the victory of Trump! Sit back and relax and watch the end of America at his hands. Dabiq is waiting.” Even a non-jihadist Syrian revolutionary group suggested on its Facebook page that Trump’s popularity is a sign of the impending apocalypse: “Trump has a large following in America . . . and he will provoke the Jews and Christians to fight Islam and Muslims . . . and he will divide the world into two camps: the camp of faith and the camp of hypocrisy, and God knows that the third world war will begin and then the Great Battle (at Dabiq near Aleppo).” From ISIS’ perspective, Trump’s eagerness to wage war against the caliphate makes him an ideal adversary for this prophesied final battle.

    Foundation, International Harbor Foundation, IHF,

    It is a vet organization. Track Palin can also sign on in some capacity.

    Medal of Honor recipient Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer announced Thursday that he’s becoming the official spokesman for the International Harbor Foundation, a non-profit group of special forces vets dedicated to busting human traffickers.

    Officail spokesperson, I mean spokesman. International Harbor Foundation. It will be interesting to learn about their history and exactly what they do. What is it about this nonprofit that moved Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer to seek this position. How he handles himself and all he will be doing. It sounds like he will spend a lot of time traveling and doing PR. He will have time with the public. Phone calls talking with donors.

    Meyer’s decision to join up with IHF coincides with the organization’s fundraising drive. His name recognition will bring in the cash for the foundation.

      Oh please. No one has ever heard of this group, and MOST people have never heard of Meyer either. Being the spouse of the Palin child who was pregnant at Mommy's convention will get him no points with people. That one wasn't even his kid.
      TV show? Ha. Political office? Ha. After the Trump fiasco ends, the GOP will not be throwing money at D list celebrities to run for office. And Dakota will never be more than that. He's not very smart, he's not very attractive unless doughy middles are your thing, and his love of all things gun is also not the most popular thing right now.
      How he handles himself? Well, like the idiot he is. Wanna bet his 'speeches' are all about HIM, just like his MILs? From what I've seen, he's about as literate as she is too.
      Why is it these people are so eager to take money from non-profits? Is it tax free too?

    Every day I learn more and more about our political system. It's been an amazing journey of ups and downs. I was so worried that America had lost its' mind back in March when crazy Donald was saying all these racist things, and crazy things in general. Now, that he's in the main race and out of the bubble he and his are nuttier than fruitcakes. I hope we all make it to the polls and shut this racist idiot down. Then he and his can slither back into their holes to plot for another four more years.

  16. Let's establish right off that the Old Redneck has finished his nightly gin and tonics.

    I just read then re-read Hillary's speech in Nevada and I gotta tell you . . . I'M PUMPED!!!

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/08/25/hillary-clintons-alt-right-speech-annotated/

    Without a doubt this speech will go down in history as one of the greatest campaign speeches ever. It will rank up there with FDR's second inaugural speech. Not quite up there with Lincoln, but, clearly one of the greatest ever.

    As we would say in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, "She whupped that boy like a red-headed stepchild!!"

    Let's give Trump credit for one thing: He has ripped away the mask of respectability behind which the GOP has hidden it's true nature for decades. He has exposed the real GOP.

    What, you ask, is the real GOP?? The Republican Party formed a coalition comprised of:
    -- Biblethumpers who want to replace the Constitution with the King James Bible
    -- Gunnuts who believe every newborn should have a firearm surgically implanted on his/her hip.
    -- "Militiamen" who rave about JADE HELM, FEMA concentration camps, AGENDA 21 . . .
    -- Southern Whites who deserted the Democratic Party (good riddance) when LBJ passed the Civil Rights and Voting Rights acts
    -- And every other piece of human detritus who can mark a ballot for the Republican candidate.

    In every Southern family . . . I know, because mine is exactly like this . . . in every Southern family is a funny uncle, a twisted sister, a weird cousin. Benjie in Faulkner's "The Sound and The Fury" is the shining example. HOWEVER . . . we always have kept these family members locked away in an upstairs bedroom. Now, the GOP takes their twisted sisters and funny uncles and PARADES THEM DOWN MAIN STREET, THEN, NOMINATE THEM FOR PRESIDENT!!!

    Read Hillary's speech. Print it. Give copies to all your friends, especially to your Republican and Tea Party friends. Shove it down their throats. Don't let them dodge this truth.

    So Hillary basically is calling Donald what we've been calling him for a year. And the newsmedia is surprised. These people have shit for brains. Donald sowed his platform on not being politically correct. Hillary is calling him what he is not by her words but by his. He and his loud mouth has gone on and on and on. Now he's bought all the racist nutcases out of the dark corners and given them hope that all is not lost. That their world can be validated. Not only that, Donald gave them on a platter the Republican party. And the Republicans in Washington didn't blink an eye. It's Hitler all over again. That's all it is.
