Even though the election was last November and it’s now June of the following year the “why I lost” excuse parade from Hillary Clinton herself and the “why she lost” sausage sputtering from her supporters is seemingly endless. It was the Russians, it was Jim Comey, it was voter suppression, it was ‘whitelash‘, on and on it goes.But the latest product of the excuse machine is about as over-the-top as has been seen or heard. Its source? Surprise, surprise,…MSNBC.
Former Clinton Deputy Secretary of State and current MSNBC contributor Wendy Sherman participated in a panel discussion earlier this week at the Aspen (Colorado) Ideas Festival and claimed that Clinton’s failure to win the office of President of the United States was because that office was held by a black man. That’s right. Hillary lost because Barack Obama is black.
“There is no doubt that we just had eight years of an African-American president,” she said, adding that it’s a relevant factor “in all that we are experiencing today.”
Experience this incredible bit of liberal delusion for yourself:
Sherman said, “There is no doubt that we just had eight years of an African-American president. When we make a social change, when we make a decision to do something we have never done before, we then take two steps backwards at least.”
“I believe in my bones,” she concluded, “that it was pretty hard to elect a woman after you’ve elected the first African-American president.”This is a very significant revelation and look into the truth about how progressives feel about our nation and its voters. Rather than celebrate the fact that Americans just twice elected an ethnic-minority to the highest office in the land, this liberal manages to find the lead lining in that silver cloud.
What she’s really saying is that Americans are so narrow-minded, so biased and so bigoted that while yes, we may break through one barrier (in electing a black man) we certainly can’t get far enough past our bigotry to do it three times in a row.One can’t help but wonder how long it will be until Martians, sun spots, the Loch Ness monster and an under-abundance of Petticoat Junction reruns on TVLand get their turn being blamed for Hillary’s loss.
Here’s a very simple clue for all of you on the left who just can’t seem to grasp this: you lost because you had a lousy, unlikable, corrupt, contemptuous, candidate.
