Criminal Solicitation -Call in/email the DNC
Mash from Docstrangelove has written about it intelligently as to why there is or should be no more passes for Hillary to make her comments. As he pointed out; Hillary Clinton has a habit of planting suggestions into the political landscape. In fact, he like I, were not anti-Hillary or a 'Hillary Hater' as some of supporters would like to dismiss the likes of him and I. In fact, way before this race, I had thought highly of Hillary. But then came the race-baiting and the dirty advertising.
Now.. now Hillary has passed that fine line that as a parent, I find difficult to explain. She has in essence committed criminal solicitation;
A person is guilty of solicitation to commit a crime if, with the purpose of promoting or facilitating its commission, he commands, encourages or requests another person to engage in specific conduct which would constitute such crime or an attempt to commit such crime or which would establish his complicity in its commission or attempted commission. It is immaterial that the actor fails to communicate with the person he solicits to commit a crime if his conduct was designed to effect such a communication.(bold added by yours truly)
The crime of criminal solicitation is the actual soliciting, or seeking to engage another to commit a crime, not the subsequent commission of a crime. Therefore, a defendant can be convicted of soliciting, even though the person refuses and the solicited crime is never perpetrated, as long as the intent that that crime be committed is present.
Did she grow up in this country or not? I've been here since 1997 and have witnessed, no, HEARD people make some VERY derogatory and outright criminally dismissive comments about 'them niggers'. After I left Saudi Arabia where I lived for 2 1/2 years,(where some American expats would call them 'sand niggers') I thought, well, after I endured and survived living here, I can live ANYwhere. Then I found myself in the Deep South. Hallelujah. It boggles your mind but this is after all the US of A. You still have fundamentalists who believe in the creation theory science be damned. You still have people who are in the KKK and believe that anything mulato is a miscegenation. Second hand citizens? Not even! There are people who, for whatever psychological reason, hate blacks. Pure and simple. Now this is not about blacks vs whites. Unfortunately, to the dismay of many African American Democratic voters, Hillary has made it such. And most unfortunately, by extension of her 'not really a gaffe', shivers must have gone down the black community.
The fine line I referred to earlier? Apparently there was none seen here by her or her many supporters. Well, let me tell you something. There are certain things one knows as an adult, through years of being raised (hopefully) with even the most basic morals and values, that you know you don't do, or don't say. Even my mother visiting from the Netherlands with her pigeon English said after hearing about this, isn't this enticement? How can you say such a thing and expect to come out smelling like roses?
So now, since no one has demanded her to drop out of the race, it is time to demand the DNC to speak up and call Hillary accountable for the final straw in a series of over the top divisive tactics that after all, undermined their own Party.
Her comment was NOT ok, nor was her non apology. RFK jr. isn't going to do the people's job to demand her immediate drop-out. It's politics, us knows us.
Call, or email or mail Speaker Nancy Pelosi and demand public denouncement and call for withdrawal from the race;

And for all those who would dismiss me as a Hillary Hater; you are obviously identifying more with feeling victimized, than as taking responsibility for someone's (or your own) actions. Get therapy. If you don't recognize that fine line when there is one, you haven't been raised right.
