    This is what happens with propaganda and you should be very suspicious of sound bites and taking your cue from them.

    I do not know if you are a propagandist or a victim of propaganda but at this point I suppose it really doesn't matter.

    Here is the speech you referred to and the subject is quite different from what you claim it to be. I had never heard of this guy before but he did have influence, though not in the way you suggest in your five second clip.

    Here is the full transcript of what he said. If you want to be honest, you should read it. Disagree with the man, by all means, but don't misrepresent or mislead. As you may or may not know, the speech was all about ACORN.

Their words not mine.
    The GOP does not want Black people to vote? That is huge news! And you say it is in their words???

    Please supply those words.

    Good move politically since these laws most adversely affect African Americans.

    The former (and future?) presidential candidate just made her most overtly political speech since stepping down as the nation's top diplomat

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ended a self-imposed political hiatus on Monday, slamming Republican-backed voter ID laws in a biting speech in San Francisco.

    Clinton said the Supreme Court in June had done serious damage with its landmark Voting Rights Act ruling, which cleared the way for states with a history of discrimination to tighten voting laws without federal approval. She also denounced voter ID laws pushed through by state legislatures controlled by the GOP, saying they were being justified as tools to fight the "phantom epidemic of voter fraud," but really just made it harder for minorities and the poor to exercise their voting rights. She referred to North Carolina's new election rules, which were signed into law by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory this week, as the "greatest hits of voter suppression."

    Sorry, the false narrative of restricting voter rights fell on its face and Hillary and Bill are being exposed as the low life human beings they are.

    Yep, that sounds like the Clintons alright.

    So far the Democrats have been successful in preventing the dead in Pennsylvania from getting the rest they deserve. Many still have to show up and vote on election day.

    The law has yet to be implemented there. Lawsuit after lawsuit. Never mind the same people that say they can't produce an ID to vote, have an ID for everything else.

    That is, allegedly, one House Republican whose name you omit. It is not the GOP.

    Did you even read what I wrote? I didn't even mention voter ID. I wrote about shutting down early voting. So that comment was you arguing with yourself.

    The don't participate in political organized events for one party. They go to vote for whomever they want. Now if you want to talk about disbanning tax exempt status for all churches... then you are preaching to the choir. I'm all about that.

    I don't know if you know this but you have a habit of replying to peoples' posts without even addressing that person's post. It's bizarre in that it seems to happen a lot.
