We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Hillary Clinton has said, and I quote, “I believe in white supremacy”

I have proof! Here she is saying exactly those words on video!

Do you think that might possibly be unfair? Do you think that quotation might possibly have been taken out of context by some malicious person?

It is fair by Hillary Clinton’s own standards. Here is another video of Hillary Clinton talking about Nigel Farage yesterday. At 0:25 seconds, she says that he has

“… said women are, and I quote, ‘worth less’ than men”

What Farage actually said can be seen on this video from Sky News. He said,

“In many, many cases women make different choices in life to the ones men make, simply for biological reasons. A woman who has a client base, has a child and takes two or three years off – she is worth far less to her employer when she comes back than when she went away because that client base won’t be stuck as rigidly to her portfolio.”

Insofar as what Farage said does include the words “women”, “worth” and “less”, Clinton’s quote is accurate.

Because I aspire to higher standards than Ms Clinton, here are her “white supremacy” remarks in context. The relevant part starts at 0:30 seconds. She is arguing against school vouchers and in the course of that imagines a situation where a parent comes and says, “I want to send my child to the school of the church of the white supremacy” (or possibly “supremacists”).

While on the subject of words in context, take a look at this report from the Guardian that gives a reasonably full account of what Mr Farage actually said that became Mrs Clinton’s

“Farage has called for a bar on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and services”

The Guardian is disapproving but makes clear that the proposed bar was temporary and excluded emergency medical care:

Farage said it was a “difficult” issue and that it was not a manifesto pledge. But he said his personal view was that immigrants would only bring their dependants after a period of time and after that he would not envisage their children being allowed to go straight into state schools.

The What We Stand For section of Ukip’s website says: “Immigrants must financially support themselves and their dependants for five years. This means private health insurance (except emergency medical care), education and housing – they should pay into the pot before they take out of it.”

I might have saved myself all this sniping and simply said that Hillary Clinton was under fire for lying again.

  • Eric

    The possibility (probability, really) this woman will be the president of the US is simply too horrible to contemplate.

  • Natalie Solent (Essex)

    I honestly can’t decide between Clinton and her erstwhile crony and political ally Trump.

  • When isn’t Hillary Clinton lying?

  • Alisa

    When she’s asleep?

  • Natalie Solent (Essex)

    No, Alisa. Then she’d be lying asleep.

  • Laird

    Why would anyone expect anything different from her? Hillary has been a pathological liar since she was Hillary Rodham. Her very first job out of law school was as a staff attorney for the Watergate Commission, from which she was fired for dishonesty. Nothing has changed in the 40+ years since then except for the magnitude of her lies and their importance to the country.

  • pete

    Why does UKIP think that immigrants need not have insurance for emergency medical care?

    I assume the party means they shouldn’t be refused it if they are here, haven’t got insurance for it and need it.

    A laudable and compassionate approach.

  • Julie near Chicago

    The two videos of Shrill referring to “the mark of Cain” (I think that’s what she said) remind me very much of why my respect for (and interest in) Cenk Uygur is in deeply negative territory.

    The video of Shrill on Farage reminds me very much of one of the several reasons why my regard for Mrs. Clinton is deeply nonexistent.

  • Runcie Balspune

    Immigrants must financially support themselves and their dependents for five years

    Isn’t this a requirement, or something similar, for many countries in the world, including the US (for an employment visa)?

  • J R R Tolkein put it best “But none could rival her, Shelob the Great, last child of Ungoliant to trouble the unhappy world.”

  • staghounds

    I hope she is the political end of the boomers. They have done poorly.

  • If Hillary Clinton were to come out and admit that she is a mass murdering psychopath that didn’t care about how high the bodies were piled as long she was firmly seated on top then I might believe her.

  • Laird

    Leslie, and if she were to do that her sycophants would still vote for her!

  • bobby b

    “If Hillary Clinton were to come out and admit that she is a mass murdering psychopath that didn’t care about how high the bodies were piled as long she was firmly seated on top then I might believe her.”

    Most Democrats would still vote for her if she did.

    Hillary Clinton attempted to link Donald Trump to the KKK in an attack ad the other day, because former Klansman David Duke showed his support earlier in the year for the Republican nominee.

    Grandma forgot that members of her beloved party actually founded the organization in the first place.

    She also couldn’t recall that a prominent Klansman, Robert Byrd, was her “mentor.”

    What also seemed to slip Hillary’s mind is that the KKK gave $20,000 to her campaign.

    Face palm.

    Turns out that the people used in Clinton’s KKK ad are actually paid actors, not klansman.

    I just hope they got $15 per hour.

    From DC Clothesline:

    According to Joe Wayne at The AntiCoIntelPro Show this is very much the case in her latest attack ad (above), which reportedly uses no actual Klan members, but rather, paid actors masquerading as Trump supporting racists..

  • Paul Marks

    Quoting out of context is an old trick of the left – old even when Saul Alinsky taught the trick to Hillary Clinton.

  • Thailover

    Yes indeed, the sky is blue, the grass is green, democrats tell egregious, obvious, paper-thin stinking lies.

    They’re like some shallow villain in a dickens novel. No doubt Hillary also kicks the dog and winds her mustache.

    The truly sad thing is, those that would typically support the democrats DON’T CARE that the representatives of the Jackass party are egregious stinking liars, just as long as they win and they’re politically and materially useful to that voter. This is why saying “Hillary is a crook” will have limited effect on voters.

  • Thailover

    Like Trump, the left paints Farage as someone who madly hates immigrants, all immigrants. Shillary is depending on Americans not knowing that Farage’s own wife (Ditto for Trump) is an immigrant. Then again, Shillary depends on all her constituents being low-information voters.

    Friend and mentor
    .

    She also seemed to forget that her friend and mentor organized a fillabuster in the senate to kill the ’64 civil rights act. Yeah, that seems to slip the minds of most democrats these days.

    What also seemed to slip Hillary’s mind is that the KKK gave $20,000 to her campaign.

    As reported by the infamous Fox News? No, rather the Washington Times. Hmmm, ‘Bother.

    I guess keeping that plantation running takes a lot of money.

    But, but, but, but…wasn’t the dems and republicans positions on blacks and racism supposed to have “changed sides” in the ’70’s?

    Yeah, that’s the rhetoric. (Or should I say propaganda), but it’s not a fact. The reason a small handful of dixiecrats defected to the Republican side of the isle was because the south was becoming LESS racist, and they merely wanted to retain their cushy jobs.

    The idea that Republican = racist has always been a lie.

  • Jacob

    Hillary is no more lying or corrupt that most politicians.

    Still, Hillary is such a depressing subject that I propose banning her from Samizdata. Please, no more Hillary posts. (Even if she gets elected, as she will).

  • Thailover

    Jacob, you sound like Winston calling for no more talk about rats. That’s just evading reality.

    I have more respect for thieving 3rd-world whores than I have for Cenk Uygur. That guy’s an underware stain.

  • Thailover

    Pete, if laws in the UK is anything like the US, people can’t be refused emergency medial care….period. ‘Which is why immigrants on the US’s southern boarders are draining hospitals dry of funds or profits by taking everything to hospital ER’s, no matter how mundane the problem.

  • Thailover

    “What also seemed to slip Hillary’s mind is that the KKK gave $20,000 to her campaign.”

    I wonder if it was in a bundle of mixed currencies, air-dropped in the dead of night on her lawn?

    Of course she is. Not that it really matters.

    It’s not just a case of quoting out of context, it’s also an actual misquote.

    Hillary : “… [Farage] said women are, and I quote, ‘worth less’ than men”

    But “than men” is sheer fabrication. In fact the Sky transcript shows that Farage, in or out of context, never made a comparison of worth between women and men :

    “she is worth far less to her employer when she comes back than when she went away’

    His comparison was between the worth of the same woman at two different points in time. No man pops his head above the parapet at all. No doubt Farage’s comparison is – though quite true – equally offensive to the offence-taking classes – but it is quite a different point.

  • Thailover

    “I honestly can’t decide between Clinton and her erstwhile crony and political ally Trump.”

    Look at it this way. I seriously doubt that Trump will hand over the keys to the internet (good bye free speech and alt news) to UN third world dictators like Obama stands to do on October 1st. If Hillarity gets in office, that’s the last of our worries. If Trump, Mr. “America First” gets in office, that’s not going to happen.

  • Thailover

    “It’s not just a case of quoting out of context, it’s also an actual misquote.”

    To be fair, Hillary only lies when she’s conscious.

    😉

  • Thailover

    “Hillary is no more lying or corrupt that most politicians.”

    Do you know anyone else who’s sold, in exchange for tens of millions of dollars deposited in their own “foundation” money laundering slush fund, 20% of America’s entire uranium ore production to Russia, whilst simutaniously painting Putin as an evil dictator?

    Only a complete megalomaniacal psychopath would have balls that huge.

    “First family that comes and says ‘I want to send my daughter to St. Peter’s Roman Catholic School’ and you say ‘Great, wonderful school, here’s your voucher,'” Mrs. Clinton said, according to the Long Island newspaper. “Next parent that comes and says, ‘I want to send my child to the school of the Church of the White Supremacist …’ The parent says, ‘The way that I read Genesis, Cain was marked, therefore I believe in white supremacy. …You gave it to a Catholic parent, you gave it to a Jewish parent, under the Constitution, you can’t discriminate against me.'” The senator added, “So what if the next parent comes and says, ‘I want to send my child to the School of the Jihad?’ … I won’t stand for it.”

    That’s called taking it out of context. Deplorable.
