Hillary Clinton: “They All Look Alike”

Filed under: General — Dana @ 6:10 pm

[guest post by Dana]

I guess because her husband was the first black president, she’s allowed to say this. And be rewarded with laughter. (Surely, that has got to be shock masquerading as laughter…)

Well done? Seriously?? I clearly don’t know the rules anymore. But I read through comments and learned that Hillary was just making a cute funny. What a relief. At least she didn’t say that Booker was articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy, am I right???

On a serious note: if you condemn racist commentary, quips, digs, snark coming from the right, then feel free to condemn this with equal gusto. But if you are on the right, and have rationalized and excused racist commentary, quips, digs, and snark coming from your own tribe, then maybe sit this one out.

  1. Hello.

    Dana (023079)

  2. She looks like she’s been drinking.

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  3. this is why black people hate her stupid guts

    she reeks of blexit and lesbianism

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  4. Seems to me like this is her way of tweaking the moderator. It’s not her racist statement, it’s the Mod’s.

  5. propaganda suck-suck Emily Birnbaum at The Hill puts it this way

    Clinton teases interviewer who confused Holder and Booker: ‘They all look alike’

    why is Emily apologizing for this bigot?

    it’s disgusting and shameful

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  6. roseanne’s comments were mild in comparison and the disneysluts gutted her and used her for bait (they chummed the icy waters)

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  7. I think that is being charitable, bored lawyer. I’m just not in the mood. She was speaking to an audience that adores her, and would be right there with her, no matter what she said. And she knew that.

    Dana (023079)

  8. happyfeet,

    I am going to moderate you if you go on a “slut” rampage. Stop now.

    Dana (023079)

  9. rampage?

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  10. Maybe avoid using the term for now, especially if it’s in regard to women in general, or specific women. I realize that your comment was “disneysluts,” but given this post is about Hillary, this is just a heads-up, ok? You have a bit of a track record.

    Dana (023079)

  11. Thank you, Dana. It’s like no one read what you wrote.

    Actually, they did. They just don’t care.

  12. So who was more ignorant, the interviewer the subject or the hill writer, who couldn’t make sense of it.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  13. understood

    i’m very scornful of disney cause i mourn “the politicization of everything”

    it’s not America, how they do

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  14. They are killing the DC universe, the star 3ars universe what else can they destroy.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  15. You shut yer hoar mouth, happyfeet!

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  16. Sorry… couldn’t resist.

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  17. No bodily functions or the resulting olfactory either, hf.

  18. Where are Diamond, Silk, or the Hamiltonian Harry Potter Cast that visited the White House last Friday when you need them?

    urbanleftbehind (b4f934)

  19. From Park Ridge to Little Rock, prolly a phrase she heard a lot. From her family, her husband’s family, her campaign staff when Obama took the nomination from her in 2008 ….

    nk (dbc370)

  20. what else can they destroy

    they could go all disney-woke on Avatar good and hard too but that’s kinda redundant

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  21. Yes that’s coals to new castle, two more avatar film, that’s zak snyder misunderstanding of demand.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  22. Who’s the leather butch?

    nk (dbc370)

  23. In other news, General Francisco Franco is still dead.

    Dave (9664fc)

  24. Gotta give H props though – that is one scary-@ss Halloween costume she’s wearing.

    She looks like she just walked off the set of Night of the Living Dead.

    Dave (9664fc)

  25. Maybe she’s just bigoted against blacks, given the way Barack Obama screwed her out of her job, and then blacks didn’t turn out for her in 2016.

    Kevin M (a57144)

  26. But she did such an endearing down-home accent every time she spoke to a pre-dominantly black audience…

    Dave (9664fc)

  27. And the turtle smirked.

    nk (dbc370)

  28. Dear lord.

    Bob the Builder (9af831)

  29. this was sarcasm I hope ;but she refused to put black man on ticket as she still has not forgiven black people from voting foe obama in 2008. as for hugging obama thats what the working girls do when you hand them the$20!

  30. Watched it, seems to me to be tone deaf joke at the moderators expense.

    -It’s racist (or at the very least ignorant) when white people assume that minorities are interchangeable.
    -Getting to black men confused could be racist.

    Teasing the moderator is a jerk move. At best it’s a tone deaf joke that makes light or racism. At worst it’s an accusation that the moderator is racist. Probably the former. If she’s going to try to encourage civility than she should do a better job modeling it.

    I know a lot of people get very worked up about this type of thing, but if doesn’t seem like an actual example of racism (like Barr’s seemed to be) than not a big deal to me.

  31. I kind of look at it like this.

    Look at the situation, and what you know about a person and decide for yourself. It’s possible to make racist/sexist joke and not be racist/sexist. It’s even possible to make a bad racist/sexist joke and not be racist/sexist. There does seem to be an heavy overlap between people who make bad racist/sexist jokes and people who generally dislike women/minorities.

    To me this looks like a bad joke.

    Similar to HappyFeet. Much of what HF says is consistent with someone that really really flat out hates women and thinks the sexual assault of women and children is funny and of little to no concern.

    But the way in which he says those things, and the volume of times he says them, makes it look like maybe he’s just trying to be funny in a very repetitive way.

    Time123 (b53270)

  32. CH,
    How does disagreeing about where criticizing an opponent transitions to demonizing them and finally incitement to violence make someone slime? Why can’t he just be wrong about where he draws the line? Why does he have to be a bad person in your eyes?

    Time123 (b53270)

  33. max boot’s a weaselly little grifter like Ana Navarro (just not as butt-ugly and squatty-looking as she is)

    he’s basically the political equivalent of a sleazy economic trollop like Mark Zandi

    they’re just trying to make a fast buck by pitching their message to someone who’ll slip em a little cash for it

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  34. Look in the mirror, haps, we could say that about the Walk Away red pill “posse” and Armstrong William’s/Michael Steele before them. (Sowell and Elder and col. West are the real deal though)

    urbanleftbehind (b4f934)

  35. walkaway & blexit aren’t really a profit-oriented movement at least not yet

    Michael Steele’s just a sick little racist like Colin Powell – they pretended to be republicans cause they were too weak and cowardly to succeed in the vicious maelstrom of democratic hate-politics

    powell doctrine lol the US Army really needs to learn to purge these losers before they get promoted so high

    but then it wouldn’t be the US Army anymore it would be competent and effective

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  36. Well I was for Ken blackwell, do they listen to zathras,

    The Powell doctrine was it good as it can be, then again he let the Republican guard get away

    Narciso (d1f714)

  37. the powell doctrine’s designed to spend the absolutely maximal amount of money (much of it borrowed from China) while letting the maximal number of tatters participate so everybody gets a trophy

    it’s the easiest least-resistance doctrine imaginable that you can implement and this explains a lot about why our military is so corrupt and useless

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  38. Lester Holt Dressed up as a Woman in ‘Whiteface,’ Fallon In Blackface, What Exactly is NBC’s Policy?

    harkin (7f4688)

  39. Well you can only implement the Powell doctrine in open areas not urban centers, hence Palestinians chechens Syrian insurgents hide in the latter

    Narciso (d1f714)

  40. “Why does he have to be a bad person in your eyes?”

    I’ve seen Max Boot in action. He has made a choice to be thought a bad person in my eyes.

    Colonel Haiku (97d6f1)

  41. That show is just a rolling dumpster fire.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  42. I’m starting to feel sorry for her–she’s a mess. She can barely string two coherent sentences together and has dreams of grandeur about running for President in 2020. She’s to be pitied, frankly.

    Rochf (877dba)

  43. If I can love Bannon but hate Miller, will their be Blexiters from Florida and Georgia who wait a week to walk away, if you know what I mean?

    urbanleftbehind (5eecdb)

  44. “she’s a mess”

    She is a mess. She represents her party very well. The woman who gave the Right “deplorables” just won’t learn.

    JRH (f51cae)

  45. the thing is

    elizabeth warren’s even more racist and implodey than hillary

    this helps hillary remain relevant in party affairs

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  46. America did not need Trump to tell us that she’s a nasty woman. I know people who voted for her who said “Nobody likes her”. (No, Oprah’s not one of them, I’ve never met her.)

    nk (dbc370)

  47. The last time there was someone that foolish it would end up being Martin o’Malley, who wrote a piece about bidens presidential race.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  48. I hate to defend Hillary, but this doesn’t bother me. It strikes me as a rather standard joke in a situation like that.

    Patterico (115b1f)

  49. You know who all look alike? Teenagers. I’m serious. That’s why Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Broward) resonated so much in white suburbia. Those kids looked just like our kids.

    nk (dbc370)

  50. Yaaaasssss, nk – Stoneman Douglas had “movie”/”Disney Channel” High School demographics

    urbanleftbehind (5eecdb)

  51. They had only 20,000 actual kids at the ballyhooed March, I’m reminded of the colloquoy Amy Pascal had with her producers

    Narciso (d1f714)

  52. It’s obvious that Hillary was making a sarcastic joke. My problem is with the pathetic double standard and hypocrisy from the Left.

    DarrenM (a4eb00)

  53. pantsuited pantload
    what difference do you make?
    deplorable dame

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  54. This was Recode with Karla Swisher. They all took it to mean “all men look alike”. They are those kind of women.

    nk (dbc370)

  55. …and then Huma shows up with some toys.

    urbanleftbehind (49b0be)

  56. Tmi, btw it seems tester may have tupoleved themselves.

    narciso (d1f714)

  57. So which of them is most likely to have a Dick Nixon 1962 speech, McCaskill came close this week.

    urbanleftbehind (49b0be)

  58. I don’t follow,
