Sunday after receiving The International Unity Award in Selma, Alabama, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed “racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House.”
Clinton said, “This is a time my friends when fundamental rights, civic virtue, the freedom of the press, the rule of law, truth, facts and reason are under assault. And make no mistake, we are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy. Now there may not be —thank God— tanks in the streets but what’s happening goes to the heart of who we are as a nation,” Breitbart reports.
Clinton also claimed, “racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House.”

While there may not be tanks in the streets, what’s happening goes to the heart of who we are as a nation. To anyone who has ever wondered what you would have done during those defining moments that we read about in history books — whether you would have risked arrest to demand votes for women or bled on the Edmund Pettus bridge to demand voting rights for all — the answer is what you are doing now could be as important as anything that anyone has done before.
When racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House, when hard-fought-for civil rights are being stripped back, when the single most important fight of our time, which makes it possible to fight every other fight and must be, as Frederick Douglass would say, our North Star — the fight to protect our vote — is not gathering the momentum and the energy and the passion it deserves, we have a lot of work to do, don’t we?” Hillary “Butcher Of Benghazi” Clinton
