When you start hearing intelligent people say stupid things, you know they’ve lost the argument. Bill Clinton is a smart man. He’s a Rhodes Scholar. He’s well read. But he can’t defend liberalism by an appeal to facts. So he does the only thing he can. He makes up stuff.
The same tactic is used by today’s racialists. Everything is about race. Criticism of an Obama policy is an attack on him and all blacks because he’s black.
People are getting tired of hearing the “it’s all about race” narrative. Even President Obama is not convinced that race is a factor of conservative opposition to his policies. Obama told PBS’ Newshour that Republican opposition to his policies isn’t about the color of his skin. “It doesn’t have to do with race in particular.”
Bill Clinton’s latest act of desperation to motivate the liberal base is to claim that voting is more difficult than purchasing an assault weapon.
During Clinton’s speech at the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the first black president, as Toni Morrison called him in 1998, said the following after offering support for President Obama’s expansion of the welfare state:
“We must push open those stubborn gates,” Clinton said. Clinton suggested that the Supreme Court decision striking down a portion of the Voting Rights Act was an act of continuing racism. “A great democracy does not make it harder to vote than to buy an assault weapon. We must open those stubborn gates,” Clinton stated.
Hyperbole is one thing, but outright fabrication is something else. Voting in America today is one of the easiest tasks to do. It doesn’t cost anything but time. There is no fee or product to buy. You need money to purchase a firearm. You don’t need any money to vote.
