Some evil is banal, some unspeakable. Hillary Clinton is wickedly evil. “Thanks to vile fork-tongued warmongers like her, Libya is a country that is now submerged in a quagmire of civil war, death and destruction.” Hillary brings death here at home, as well. “She has been a champion for the building of more prisons and the hyper-policing of urban enclaves where mostly African/blacks reside.”
Hillary Clinton: The Wicked Witch of the West
by Solomon Comissiong
“She is morally bankrupt and is a blood thirsty imperialist.”
“We came, we saw, he died!” Those were the barbaric words then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, spewed from her venomous mouth, immediately after learning that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had been brutally murdered. He was viciously beaten then sodomized – with a bayonet, then shot in the head. The people who carried out this savage execution were terrorist so-called rebels that United States government officials, like Hillary Clinton, helped finance in order to carry out regime change. When Hillary Clinton cackled like a wicked witch after saying, “we came, we saw, he died”, she was joyous because of the significant role she (the CIA and Barack Obama) played in helping to bring about Gaddafi’s horrific end.
The likes of Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, lied to the public regarding Muammar Gaddafi and Libya. They lied in order to create a “justification” to topple Gaddafi and his government. There was not a shred of evidence that he was planning to murder Libyan civilians. However, he was resistant to the United States’ neo-colonial machinations with Africom. And knowing that the US dollar was rapidly dropping in value, he wanted the US to purchase oil from Libya in the form of gold. He called for a United States of Africa. He also wanted to rid his country of terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda. Muammar Gaddafi and the Libyan Jamahiriya, was just the kind of leader (and government) the United States hates, and historically loves to overthrow.
“Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama lied to the public regarding Muammar Gaddafi and Libya.”
Under Gaddafi, Libya also had social programs like free education, free healthcare (things US citizens don’t even have) and the highest living standard on the African continent. Unfortunately, these are things that the United States government helped destroy, setting Libya back several decades. The nationalized oil, which helped Gaddafi pay for these social programs, has since been exploited by many of the same Western players (NATO) who assisted the US in the savage destruction of Libya.
Hillary Clinton was a strong proponent and vocal cheerleader of the barbaric bombing of Libya, a bombing campaign that destroyed tens of thousands of civilian lives. Thanks to vile fork-tongued warmongers like her, Libya is a country that is now submerged within a quagmire of civil war, death and destruction. It is now, also a country currently overrun by terrorist groups, many of which the United States has provided significant support. Vastly dumbed-down pockets of the US populace may not see Hillary Clinton as a vile witch; however, to millions of people who have suffered because of her contributions to the US empire’s imperialist conquests, she is the Wicked Witch of the West.
This context must be understood to fully comprehend the wicked nature of Hillary Clinton. She is morally bankrupt and is a blood thirsty imperialist. She is not only a champion for US imperialism; she has been a champion for the building of more prisons and the hyper-policing of urban enclaves where mostly African/blacks reside. Referring to African/black youth, as “super predators” is something she had no qualms doing when she was “First Lady” in 1994. Hillary Clinton has been complicit with neo-colonial policies levied on Haiti, by her husband.
“Fraudulent politicians like Hillary Clinton prey upon the naivety of masses of people of color.”
There is no shortage of reasons to be repulsed by Hillary Clinton. However, those significant reasons are often shielded from her most naïve supporters. They have been duped into believing that Hillary Clinton, like her husband, is their savior. This is particularly the case with African/black voters. A great many African-Americans have been conditioned (politically domesticated) to believe that the Clintons (and Democrats in general) love them. This is nothing more than a patently false urban myth. The Clintons, like the Democratic Party, have never (and will never) truly liberate African/black people.
African/black people’s ability to control their own destinies will not come from the Democratic or Republican Parties. Wall Street and the military industry complex control these political parties, and that is whom they primarily serve. They have absolutely no interest in seeing African/black people prospering outside of their economic or political control. The Democratic and Republican parties cling to the same white power structures that enables institutional racism to thrive. They are more alike than they are different. And fraudulent politicians, like Hillary Clinton, prey upon the naivety of masses of people of color who have yet to be exposed to alternatives to the pernicious web of corporate politics.
It is imperative that activists and organizers, alike, expose these alternatives to oppressed communities of color. We must not only expose the contradictions of mainstream corporate politics; we must collectively build (and sustain) movements aimed at destroying structural oppression. From these movements we can build political structures that answer to the interests of the masses, and not the interests of Wall Street. A new structure is not only possible, it is essential.
