On the topic of Black Lives Matter and the Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders historical record for the cause, Rap artist Killer Mike delivers a beautiful and powerful speech. Rapper Killer Mike contrasts Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders when faced with Black Lives Matters protesters interrupting their respective speeches. Bernie Sanders who helped lead anti segregation protests in 1962 and chained himself to a black woman in a protest in 1963 while Hillary Clinton was a Barry Goldwater Republican. To be fair, Hillary Clinton is no longer a Barry Goldwater Republican, but the Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders contrast in dealing with these protesters speaks volumes. This is a GREAT 1:33 minute video that is a must watch!
Bernie Sanders WAS part of the civil rights movement in the early 60s and here is some original footage from the Chicago Tribune 1963 archive showing Bernie Sanders in action. Bernie Sanders has verified that it is indeed him in the video.
Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders
then vs now
While Bernie Sanders was protesting segregation in the 60s, Hillary Clinton was a Barry Goldwater Republican. In the 80s while Hillary Clinton was on the board of Wal Mart, Bernie Sanders was busy creating community land trusts to help the homeless people as the Mayor of Burlington Vermont. Bernie Sanders has been consistent and forthright his entire life, Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, has had scandal after scandal after scandal. Bernie Sanders has been consistent and honest his entire life; Hillary Rodham-Clinton has been flip-flopping then back peddling and then outright lying about what her stance was because it does not happen to fit her story at the time. There are COUNTLESS videos online that catch her in the act and yet she keeps on doing it. Google it if you don’t believe me; it’s mind boggling!
This is also a more general narrative throughout their respective lives. In 1970 Bernie Sanders supported gay marriage whereas Hillary Clinton was against it in until 2013. Bernie Sanders has come out for the legalization of marijuana at the federal level; Hillary Clinton is still against it. It is a long list, so here is a video that shows a few examples of the Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders relative morality and consistency with respect to those morals.
