Hillary Clinton says her newly launched political group Onward Together takes its name from an old African proverb that’s displayed prominently on the group’s site: “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” But while Hillary may think she’s enough of a liberal icon, schooled in diversity and adept at feeling the pain of disenfranchised minorities that she’s allowed to pull freely from their historical wisdom,her followers don’t feel the same way. Using “African sayings,” is, of course, cultural appropriation, and Twitter’s social justice warriors were quick to pounce on Clinton’s faux worldliness.
Comments: She´s such an obnoxious hack. She is so delusional that she has no idea that she is a political failure and not as many people adore her as she thinks they do.
The Africa I know is awash in graft, corruption and tribal racism. All appropriate attributes of the clintons She thinks she´s pandering to the African American vote. Instead she´s making a bigger fool of herself.
This is wonderful because it is an illustration not only of how EVERYTHING Hillary Clinton does is contrived and artificial, but how constrained and tyrannical leftists are. Obviously, the useful idiots on the left yearn for serfdom.
OP´s use of "She´s such an obnoxious hack!" with no other qualifier would without a doubt cause one to, without hesitation, come up with "Hilliary Clinton!" as the object. Same same with that pseudo African saying, "if you want to go quickly etc, etc." leads one to come up almost immediately with "Hilliary Clinton" with no space in between. Even though there is no physical path to the past as far as origins on that saying, there are some who use it without ever understanding its meaning or intent.
What is interesting is that this "Going quickly" proverb does not have a clear path to it´s origins except for the fact it sounds vaguely African. The truth of where it originated is buried so deeply in the past that it may never be found.
Another saying I like which is attributed to Rwanda´n culture is "The dance may change but the drums are the same!" Whatever the origin of that one, the meaning fits politics to a T....
What ever the source, these sayings are worth repeating from time to time to at least show a little bit of humility if nothing else. It is doubtful however if Hilliary Clinton will ever get the point of these intelligent sounding loosely translated foreign proverbs.
WASHINGTON — Paul J. Manafort was in bed early one morning in July when federal agents bearing a search warrant picked the lock on his front door and raided his Virginia home. They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet. The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, then followed the house search with a warning: His prosecutors told Mr. Manafort they planned to indict him, said two people close to the
Washington US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election, sources tell CNN, an extraordinary step involving a high-ranking campaign official now at the center of the Russia meddling probe. The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump. Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence
RUSH: Headline: “NBC News Launches Media Site.” NBC News has just announced a new unit that will be dedicated to covering the media, like Howard Kurtz covers the media for Fox News. Little Brian Stelter covers the news for CNN. (Snip) Gabriel Sherman, who has written all of the anti-Roger Ailes articles and book, Gabriel Sherman, at New Yorker or New York, one of the two; Ben Smith, the social justice warrior from BuzzFeed; Kara Swisher, she’s a tech blogger. She used to be at the Wall Street Journal, now at something called Recode. She’s a huge Trump hater and
Authorities in Southern California are looking for a thief caught on camera snatching the purse of an 82-year-old woman as she was grabbing an item from a shelf at a grocery store last week. Burbank Police said the robbery occurred Tuesday at a Ralphs supermarket when the elderly woman reached up to grab an item from a store shelf. In surveillance video released of the incident, the suspect is seen snatching the victim´s purse from the scooter and then leaving the store. The victim, whose name was not released, had placed her purse on the floorboard of her electric scooter
A group of illegal aliens calling themselves the “Immigration Liberation Movement” crashed a press conference by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday, warning the Democratic Party not to “sell [us] out.” The group shouted down Rep. Pelosi, who struggled to maintain control of the meeting, and unfurled a large banner calling for all illegal aliens to be legalized. (Snip) In the “mic check” call-and-response style popularized by the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011, the activists declared: We remember all too well how for eight years the Democrats laid siege to our communities, raiding and deporting nearly three million
RUSH: Today is the 15th of September and that means that a movie is opening tonight that I hope does very well. It’s called American Assassin, and it is a movie that has been developed/made based on a novel written by the late noted thriller author Vince Flynn, who became a very, very close friend. (Snip) I would tell you if I thought that it was predictable, and it’s not. When the movie was over, I was unaware of how much time had passed. It has a run time just short of two hours, an hour and 58 minutes. So
Eric Bolling Jr ´partied´ the night before he was found dead and was allegedly seen doing drugs, including cocaine, weed and Xanax, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. The 19-year-old economics student was found dead in his bed last Friday morning by a friend at his apartment in Boulder, Colorado. Police logs obtained by DailyMail.com show a medical call to his home at the plush Providence Boulder apartment complex was received at 7.49 a.m. (Snip) Now a friend of Bolling Jr has claimed that the college student used illicit substances the night before he died, but said he didn´t intentionally kill himself.
Hillary Clinton’s new book entitled “What Happened” was officially released on Tuesday. Since then, she has been promoting it with the zeal of an indefatigable carnival barker. It seems to be working. (Snip) I’ve spent two days and consumed three packs of Tums trying to digest all 464 pages. (I’m a fast reader.) I initially counted 43 reasons Clinton gives for her 2016 election loss, as she meticulously faults all the people who sabotaged what was rightfully hers. But upon closer examination, I have discovered thirteen more who are to blame. Incredible. But not surprising. You see, Clinton has long
A federal judge issued a ruling Friday that blocks the Justice Department from requiring cities to cooperate with federal immigration authorities in order to be considered eligible for federal law enforcement grants. The ruling blocks nationwide enforcement of two of the three new conditions the Justice Department sought to impose on jurisdictions seeking funds through the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant, which doles out nearly $400 million to state and local agencies each year. (Snip) “The harm to the city’s relationship with the immigrant community if it should accede to the conditions is irreparable,” Judge Leinenweber wrote. “Once such trust is lost,
The dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government has announced that the school has scrapped a plan to make convicted WikiLeaks leaker Chelsea Manning a visiting fellow, but still plans to have her speak at its vaunted Kennedy School. Douglas W. Elmendorf stressed that Manning is still invited to talk with students and then host a forum where she would be asked “hard questions” about her story. He said the school never had any intention to honor her or endorse “any of her words or deeds.” “I apologize to her and to the many concerned people from whom I have
Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence. Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process. William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s
President Trump on Friday advocated for a "larger, tougher and more specific" travel ban in response to a bomb explosion in London’s subway system. Trump in a string of tweets called the bombing an attack “by a loser terrorist” and suggested British authorities did not do enough to prevent it. "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist,” he tweeted. “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” Trump then sent another message about the ban, writing ”the travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that
Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more
A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself
Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying. Milbank discusses his health crises in his September 15 Washington Post column, President Trump is killing me. Really. President Trump is killing me. No, really. He’s killing me. It wasn´t one of his campaign promises but we´ll take it. I went for my annual physical last month, and, for the first time in my 49 years, I had to report that I’ve not been feeling
Georgia Tech police shot dead a barefoot student carrying a knife late on Saturday night. The student, 21-year-old Scout Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, was seen walking toward police - who issued several warnings to drop what officers believed was a knife. The tense encounter was caught on camera - in which the student can be seen walking closer and closer to the police officers and shouting ´shoot me.´ (Snip) At Georgia Tech, Schultz was president of the school´s Pride Alliance, which is a student organization for LGBTQ students and allies. Schultz preferred ´they´ and ´them´ gender pronouns and identified
The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,
The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.
People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a
Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey. Comey led the Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state, after Lynch stepped back
Union — A violent brawl over the weekend between two couples at a local Walmart was captured on video showing punches being exchanged as children watched and attempted to intervene. The video appears to show the two couples fighting Saturday near the jewelry section in the store on Springfield Road in Union. (Snip) The two men can be seen exchanging blows as the two women brawl at the same time. A third woman can be seen attempting to break up the fight between the two women with two young children also trying to intervene. Dozens of customers looked on at the ensuing
The star of HBO´s Insecure proudly spoke about her support for black nominees at the Emmys last night in an awards ceremony that had historic wins for minority stars. ´I´m rooting for everybody black,´ Issa Rae said from the red carpet. ´I am!´ The 32-year-old actress and writer also praised the number of African-Americans recognized for their talents in the TV industry. (Snip) During his speech for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy, he said: ´I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list. He´s the reason I am probably up here.´
Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African
Another day, another radical judge. As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, a U.S. district judge may actually refuse to rescind Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s conviction despite the fact that President Trump pardoned him. Arpaio is 85 years old. (Photo) The White House announced on August 25th that President Trump pardoned former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In a filing Thursday, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton wrote she wasn’t convinced that she should drop Arpaio’s conviction, The Washington Post reported. Instead, she may only drop the criminal case and let the conviction stand–unless she can be convinced otherwise. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton
