Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been desperately trying to paint Donald Trump and his supporters with a broad brush of racism, but one former ‘Feel the Bern’ supporter has shattered that myth.
The Clinton campaign very recently decided to go full bore with the ‘Trump supporters are racist’ narrative, producing a campaign ad that offers nothing short of a direct correlation between the KKK and the Republican nominee.
Meanwhile, vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine has gone on the attack saying Trump embraces “Ku Klux Klan values.”
Bruce Carter has put a very serious dent in the Clinton line of attack, first off because he’s a former Bernie Sanders supporter and second, because he just so happens to be the head of an organization called ‘Black Men For Bernie.’
Now it would appear that the Clinton campaign will have to admit Trump embraces ‘black values.’
Carter plans to use his resources “to campaign against Hillary Clinton and for Donald Trump and other Republicans in battleground states across the country.”
Black Men for Bernie founder Bruce Carter’s mission to restore black communities didn’t end when Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders lost to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary. He opposed Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment then because he knew that they didn’t represent the minority communities he engaged in politics to fight for.
After the leak of internal DNC emails, Carter is convinced that the Democratic Party “rigged” the primary against his candidate and that Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Party has no intention of changing the policies that led to the destruction of the communities he’s working to improve.
Bruce Carter still believes that Hillary Clinton is the poster child for the kind of cronyism, corruption, and evil that the Bernie revolution was built to overthrow. He doesn’t believe Hillary Clinton when she labels Donald Trump and his supporters as racists because he knows she falsely labeled her opponents in the primary as sexist “Bernie Bros.” Carter’s preparing to take the experience, knowledge, and contacts his group built during the primary to campaign against Hillary Clinton and for Donald Trump and other Republicans in battleground states across the country.
Carter is a very vocal detractor of Hillary, saying “you look at the policies [Hillary] has been involved with they show she has no regard for the black race.”
He is very specific about his opposition to Clinton’s presidency, blasting her foreign policy record as not being concerned enough with impoverished blacks overseas and taking issue with a 1994 crime bill that Bill and Hillary turned into ‘their own little cash cow.’
If an organization of African-Americans realizes Hillary is bad for minority communities, perhaps it’s time to ditch the ‘Trump is racist’ nonsense and start looking within your own campaign.
