Huckabee, The Confederate Flag, Racism, Blacks, Black Voters, Hillary, Bill and the South Carolina Primary

The Racism Blame Game: Top House Democrat blames Republican Huckabee for Hillary and Bill race based campaigning

Are the Democrats stretching the Color Arousal campaigning of Team Clinton (Bill and Hillary) to Mike Huckabee? You remember when preacher Mike Huckabee said,

“You don’t like people from outside the state coming and telling you how you ought to raise your kids. You don’t like people coming from outside the state coming down and telling you what you want to do with your flag. In fact, if someone came to the state of Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we’d tell them where to put the pole – that’s what we’d do.”

Is House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) off base when blaming a Republican presidential candidate for the Color Arousal campaigning of Bill, Hillary and their surrogates?

Well , Jim Clyburn is now saying its former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) fault for all the color arousal campaigning of Team Clinton during the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary. Source

Clyburn is quoted as saying “I don’t want to sound disingenuous here but we were doing well with this whole issue coming out of New Hampshire.”


“It was not until Huckabee sort of brought the Confederate battle flag into this thing,” Clyburn said. “Nobody’s been talking about that. And I guarantee you people recoiled when he did. You remember not only did he talk about the flag in a disparaging way but he talked about what the people of Arkansas would do with the pole of the flag...That’s the kind of stuff that brought this back into [the Democratic presidential] campaign and it was not here until he did that.” Source


Before the GOP presidential primary in South Carolina earlier this month, Huckabee said, “You don’t like people from outside the state coming and telling you how you ought to raise your kids. You don’t like people coming from outside the state coming down and telling you what you want to do with your flag. In fact, if someone came to the state of Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we’d tell them where to put the pole – that’s what we’d do.”

Pressed how a Republican would affect the tone in the Democratic presidential race, Clyburn said Huckabee “opened Pandora’s box." More HERE

AAPP: "I say both Arkansas Governor's are true confederates who came out the closet to show their true confederate colors.'
