Maybe it’s her non-existent back pain that is the problem, but 2016 election loser Hillary Clinton seems confused. How else to explain her recent implication that the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would bring America back to the days of slavery. Doesn’t she realize that Kavanaugh is not even a Democrat?
“This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers’ rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights,” Clinton said at a speech to the American Federation of Teachers on Friday. “It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of the Court for decades and to reverse decades of progress.”
“I used to worry that [the GOP] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s,” she added.

Hey, has anybody told Hillary that it was the Republicans who were fighting to end slavery in America, while the Democrats fought to preserve it?
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. once revealed in an interview for the book “Bamboozled” that, “There is no doubt that the Democratic Party is the party of the Confederacy, historically, that the Democratic Party’s flag is the Confederate flag.”
“Secessionists in the South saw themselves as Democrats and were Democrats,” he added. “That so much of the Democratic Party’s history, since it is our nation’s oldest political party, has its roots in slavery.”
Her comments are reminiscent of other Democrats who have tried to demonize Republicans by saying they want to return to the days of slavery.
During the 2012 campaign, Former Vice President Joe Biden told a predominantly black crowd in Virginia that the Republicans and Mitt Romney “wanted to put them all back in chains.”
Now Clinton is echoing those sentiments. No surprise, but perhaps the woman who referred to blacks as superpredators should check herself before she makes such a wild claim.
