An excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s notorious 1996 book It Takes a Village, surfaced on Twitter yesterday, and it’s hilariously awful. So awful that many leftists are accusing the failed presidential contender of “owning slaves.”
man all this time I thought Bill was the marginally worse person— Godzilla Mindset (@ByYourLogic) June 6, 2017
Here’s [sic] parts of the excerpt:
When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion was a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs, and I was assured that the inmates were carefully screened. I was also told the onetime murders were far the preferred security risks. The crimes of the convicted murderers who worked at the governor’s mansion usually involved a disagreement with someone they knew, often another young man in the neighborhood…
I saw and learned a lot as I got to know them better. We enforced rules strictly and sent back to prison any inmate who broke a rule. I discovered as I had been told I would, that we had far fewer disciplinary problems with inmates who were in for murder than with those who had committed property crimes. In fact, over the years we lived there, we became friendly with a few of them, African-American men in their thirties who had already served twelve to eighteen years of their sentences.
You can even hear it in her own words!
