Hillary calls Flint water crisis racism; wait until you see ‘racist’ city council at blame

Democrats never miss an opportunity to cry racism even when that assertion makes no sense.

Enter Hillary Clinton, who used the Flint, Michigan, water crisis  where people have been drinking, bathing and cooking with lead-contaminated water — as an opportunity to pander to black voters.

The Democratic presidential front-runner told a mostly black audience at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Sunday that the situation was “not just as an environmental disaster and a health crisis,” but “a civil rights issue.”

“If it had been a rich white suburb where the water was brown and smelly, people would have come immediately to the rescue of those families to protect those children to make sure they had the best chance to live up to their God-given potential!” the peddling former secretary of state said.

She also took the opportunity to paint herself as the hero and Republican Gov. Rick Snyder as the villain.

“I started talking about (the crisis) and pointing it out, and created some additional political pressure,” she told the crowd.

“Within two hours (Gov. Snyder) made that request (to the Obama administration for help),” she added.

But Gov. Snyder told “Fox & Friends” a different story on Monday.

“The way this really happened is the community made a decision, the city and the county all wanted to switch away from Detroit’s water system back in 2013 and there was a 7-1 city council vote to say let’s move to this new water authority,” he said.

OK, if the city council voted to change water systems, then they must be the racists who don’t care about the people of Flint, right?

Here is a picture of the Flint City Council.

What do you think? Did race play a role in the Flint water crisis?

    Liar! Hillary, can you tell the truth about ANYTHING?

  2. Lively LayD says:

    The city council was not in power when the water was switched. The decision to switch the water supply was done by the Emergency Manager assigned by Gov. Snyder.

      Maybe so but it’s very obvious that she is using this to gain votes from the blacks. I just hope the black community can see her facade and will not fall for her fake interest in their needs. This goes for the whites as well. So many think she is wonderful but her history tells a whole different story.

      1. Beeotchstewie says:

        They vote very simply, for the one who promises them the most entitlements (free stuff). It goes no further than that, shining examples; Sheila Jackson Lee, Hank Johnson, Elijah Cummings, Maxine Waters, Charlie Rangel.

    2. LivelyLayD says:

      Most black people are not of fan of Hillary, but the conservative response has been worse ie Jeb Bush. I was born in the neighboring Saginaw County, its 20 minutes from Flint. Snyder should be in jail. The Saginaw, Flint and Cass city river were dumping grounds for the automobile industry for decades. That’s not a secret to anyone the local schools teach it in elementary school. The idea to switch the supply was asinine. Snyder should be indicted and the fact that people are using this as a political ploy is despicable.

    3. Nancy Silcox says:

      Emergency Manager Darnell Earley. A black man. Now he is EM of Detroit Public Schools. You know, the ones where the teachers are on sickout because of deplorable conditions.

      1. Lively LayD says:

        The one who was assigned by Snyder. I never said he wasn’t black just that he was responsible and not the city council.

  3. Mlm46 says:

    She’ll say anything to get the black vote!

  4. Willo says:

    She is such a fake…………..I just hope the black community can see through her veil of deceit. She is using them for votes and they are just falling for it totally.

  5. gbonkers666 says:

    Name one big city council in America that isn’t controlled by Democrats?

  6. Beeotchstewie says:

    7 blacks and two whites on the city council. So, are we to assume the seven blacks are all Uncle Tom blacks or are they just not black enough?

  7. floral says:

    Detroit is a significantly “black” city and its water is heavily dosed with fluoride. Detroit also has one of the highest rates of dental caries. Flouride is known also to lower IQ rates.
    If water change is “racist”, is not Detroit water also “racist”, in that it affects the Poorest, which is mostly the black pop in Detroit?

  8. Mary Brown says:

    Hitlery lie? No way! Tell me it isn’t true! And the Liar of the Year award goes to… Hitlery Clinton and the Clinton Crime Cartel!

  9. Phoenix says:

    No!! I don’t believe it.Hillary would never lie. (Sarcasm) Hilary wouldn’t tell the truth if her life depended on it. She says she is one of us, but she has never had to worry about paying her bills, wondering if she will be able to make this/next months rent. Worrying about putting food on the table for her family. Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot she and Bill were DEAD broke when they left the White House.
