Not Much Hillarity Here
Hillary Clinton will shill for six racist thugs who beat down a kid and put him in the hospital, while disrespecting the general leading our nation in war in Iraq.
Rank opportunism, cowardice, utter lack of principle . . . I could go on and on here.
(h/t Hot Air)
Update: Drudge has a headline stating that Hillary called Dick Cheney 'Darth Vader'. Wasn't Hillary the one who decried the 'politics of personal destruction'? I guess we can add hypocrite to her ever-lengthening list of faults.

Anywhere the Rev. Al Sharpton is, you know he is playing the RACE CARD! AND Hillary is playing his Queen...

Please, HRC is really a depressing hunk of carbon-based life form.
Posted by: Eneils Bailey at September 19, 2007 07:05 PM
HRC is a brown nosing political machine!

Just today I saw someone with a T-shirt that said "Free the Jena 6." I'm sorry to report that the "trial by race" movement, which insists that court cases must reach a verdict in favor whoever has the darker complexion, is alive and well.

No way! A tee shirt?... That is ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous as OJ Simpson being out on bail. He is like the epidomy of flight risk with his past history of the Bronco being escorted down the freeway???

Ken...I think Hillary's afraid of VP Cheney.
Posted by: zsa zsa at September 20, 2007 11:15 AM
Hillary is probably wrong, Darth Vader turned away from the dark side in the final episode, but Cheney is likely to remain pure evil to the end. LoL!!

Supposedly kids walked out of their class to protest these thugs. I hope every one of them gets to stay after school to make up for their interuption!
Posted by: zsa zsa at September 20, 2007 03:48 PM
After looking into this matter a bit further I am beginning to think that these kids have been OVER charged. I don't believe they should be set free. BUT a potential LIFE sentence is a bit too harsh. Other circumstances prior to this incident in cases that were somewhat the same appears like the DA over charged these kids...
Posted by: zsa zsa at September 21, 2007 09:22 AM
What is bad is that because of the public outcry and big hoofarah, these little thugs will probably be set free. IF that is the case? I certainly hope these 6 kids learn a lesson. BUT I fear they will learn that the "RACE CARD" is the way of the future to get then out of serious crimes...

I always resent these things being made into national issues for politicians to pose about. The local facts of any case are usually messier than what gets reported, because people with an agenda have an investment in situations looking pure and a proper representation of the myth they are trying to sell. I think that whenever one of those "fifth-grader suspended for (blank)" stories makes the news. We get only one side of the story, we try to fit it into a template, and the facts on the ground might be different. I work in an involuntary psychiatric hospital. Misleading stories make it to the newspapers all the time, and we cannot, because of confidentiality, correct the record.
In this case, it does seem that the black community in this area has been targeted by racist whites - not "subtle racism" or "economic oppression," or any of those other unmeasurables, but actual violence and threats of violence. Who started it, who perpetuated it, who has worked to stop it, is very unclear at this point. What should be noted is that this is more like an episode of an ongoing feud, not a random act of thuggery.
I don't say this to excuse it. I'm neither accusing nor excusing anyone at this point. I would just caution that this does not fit a clean template.

Now that more information is in, it appears that the conclusion people wanted to jump to here is pretty much accurate. The ongoing racial fights do not seem to have had much to do with the Jena beating.

Where was Hillary after the three Duke University students were FALSELY accused of rape by a completely trumped up RACIST charge by a stripper? She is NOT presidential material.
Posted by: Chief RZ at September 25, 2007 08:05 AM
Chief RZ - the scary thing? For exactly that reason, she is presidential material to one party.
