(KFSM) — Hillary Clinton became the first woman to become a presidential nominee of a major party on Tuesday afternoon (July 26).

She received the required number of delegates after South Dakota pledged 15 of its 25 delegates to Clinton.

She needed 2,382 delegates to clinch the Democratic nomination.

Clinton will formally accept the nomination on Thursday night, before embarking on an intense fall campaign with polls showing her clash with Republican nominee Trump is, for now, too close to call.

    History made with the wrong woman. What does it say about a country and a party to vote for, then nominate, a career criminal? Sad. Now expect the lying media to fall all over themselves like never before to help this scumbag get elected.

      …and what does it say about a political party to not display one American flag during their nominating convention on Day 1? Then, under pressure from critics, they bring flags in for Day 2.

        …and what does it say a political party who claims to ‘fight for’ the poor then throws out leftover food last night instead of giving away to the poor?

        …and what does it say about a party who invites law-breaking illegal immigrants and the mother of a thug to speak?

        …tell us 5 “News”, why are you in bed with this ‘democratic’ party, the party of slavery, the party of the KKK, the party of bribes, thievery, and murder? The party that included LBJ who once stated, “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference… I’ll have them n***ers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years”.

        …a party with a nominee who once called Blacks ‘super predators’ and a husband who joked in 2008 about Obama “getting us coffee?” HIllary pandering to Blacks, ““Ah don’t feel no ways TAHHHHHRD.”

        If the media wants to focus on the racism of the presidential candidates, why are they ignoring these 10 prime examples:

        #1 – In 1974, after Bill Clinton lost his bid for a Senate seat, Hillary lashed out at campaign manager Paul Fray calling him a, “f*cking Jew bastard!” This outburst was witnessed and confirmed by 3 people, so it definitely happened.

        #2 – As First Lady, Hillary called young black men “super-predators” indicating that she thought all young black males were violent criminals. She also said, “We have to bring them to heel,” like young blacks are the same as dogs. Despite thinking this was incredibly racist, blacks still support Hillary.

        #3 – While serving in the US Senate, Hillary tried to make a joke that disparaged a civil rights icon and demeaned all people from India. “I love this quote. It’s from Mahatma Gandhi. He ran a gas station down in St. Louis for a couple of years. Mr. Gandhi, do you still go to the gas station?” asked Clinton.

        #4 – In 2005 Hillary said, “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants.” She also, as a Senator, voted to construct a wall between the US and Mexico. Considering the main “proof” of Trump’s racism is that he opposes illegal immigration and wants to build a wall, isn’t it odd that Hillary gets off for having said the same thing?

        #5 – During the 2008 democratic primaries Hillary Clinton’s campaign started the “birther” rumors, questioning Obama’s US citizenship. They even circulated the now famous picture of Obama in full Muslim garb. Somehow Trump’s campaign to get Obama to release his birth certificate is racist, but Hillary’s role in starting the birther movement is not.

        #6 – Also during the 2008 presidential race, Hillary’s husband Bill said this of Obama: “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.” Hillary didn’t say this one but her husband did and she certainly never disavowed it.

        #7 – Shortly after announcing her candidacy, Hillary said “all lives matter” in a black church. I don’t think this one is racist, but lefties, black activists, and Hillary herself all do, so it makes the list. Plus as is the case with most of this stuff, if Trump had said it liberals would freak the hell out.

        #8 – In November of 2015, Hillary called people in this country illegally “illegal aliens.” Trump is a racist when he says “illegal aliens,” why isn’t Hillary?

        #9 – In April of this year, Hillary joined NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio on stage at a democratic fundraiser for a scripted joke about how lazy black people are. The two liberals made reference to “colored people’s time” which is a super-racist way of saying black people are chronically tardy and lethargic.

        #10 – April was a great month for Hillary’s racism, as she also made a comment disparaging Native Americans. She said she had experience dealing with wild men when they “get off the reservation.” In essence she said Native Americans are savages who must be segregated from the rest of society. -Brain Anderson, Downtrend.com
