Hillary Clinton’s anti-Sanders smears are completely out of control:

Hillary Clinton?s anti-Sanders smears are completely out of control: Why her latest Bernie broadside is utterly hypocritical - Salon.com

Quote:
Hillary Clinton has already used Bernie Sanders’ comments about gun control to cynically accuse him of sexism. Now, she’s using his comments on gun control to imply that he’s a racist.

“There are some who say that this [gun violence] is an urban problem,” Clinton said on Friday, speaking to the Charleston, South Carolina NAACP, in a clear reference to Sanders. “Sometimes what they mean by that is: It’s a black problem. But it’s not. It’s not black, it’s not urban. It’s a deep, profound challenge to who we are.”

Clinton running an ad highlighting her support for gun control is politically smart given Sanders’ idiosyncratic record on the issue. But her willingness to smear a left-wing opponent is cynical and particularly remarkable coming from a candidate who has supported some of the most anti-black political initiatives of the past three decades.

Hillary Clinton embraced welfare reform, a major assault on poor people in general and poor black women in particular, and she brazenly stoked racist prejudice during her losing race in 2008 against Obama. She is also a very recent convert to the idea that the system of mass incarceration erected by her husband’s administration is a racist disaster (and something, as I will explore in my next story, that gun control measures often abet).

In 1998, she praised the 1994 crime bill for combining “tough prosecution measures with smart prevention efforts” and called for “zero tolerance for guns and drugs in school.”
When your campaign is either about how you suffer as a 1% woman, or degrading your opponent, then you are sending up red flags. This woman actually has NOTHING she has done with her political life that resembles a democrat at all. she's a neoliberal And that's bad for Americans

You have a right to dream but, in a reality based world, Bernie has no chance.

People vote their values, not for a speech.

Not with this type of Wall Street, multinational, Israel and Saudi Funded smear campaign. But then again, Hillary doesn't either. The Bernie supporters aren't going to fall in line with Hillary if she wins the candidacy. Most don't want their political party hijacked by neoliberals.

Yes, the Liberals truly have a problem. Two unelectable lumps of lard. But, there's still some hope. Hillary may go to jail. But then, there's probably not enough freeloading college kids to vote poor Bernie into office. Quite a dilemma.
Thanks from Jimgorn

You're right. He, unlike even Hillary, has a record of legislation and administrative success in how to get the nation turned around. HE"S not funded by the rich. Hillary is ONLY funded by the rich, who have already told her her job description.

When you lie in the campaign trail in one area, you are easily lying about what you say you have done. And Clinton has said a lot of lies
