Default Clintons belonged to white-only country club when Bill was Arkansas governor

Bill Clinton admits when pressed in 1992, promptly rolls out weird excuse after his behavior is exposed as being the opposite of his egalitarian claims and then accuses Bush Sr of "racially dividing the country" though there is no record of Bush having joined a white-only country club:


THE 1992 CAMPAIGN: Democrats; Clinton Says Golfing at All-White Club Was Mistake

After months of presenting himself as a Southern candidate with a good civil rights record, Gov. Bill Clinton has suddenly found himself under criticism for a classic gesture of racial separation: playing golf at an all-white country club.

Mr. Clinton was chided by a leader of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in Little Rock and by Gov. L. Douglas Wilder of Virginia for playing golf on Wednesday at the Country Club of Little Rock, an upper-crust bastion in the Arkansas state capital. The rebuke by Dale Charles, president of the Little Rock chapter of the civil rights group was first reported on Thursday by The Washington Times.

Mr. Clinton quickly admitted that he had made a mistake and vowed never to play there again until it was integrated.

He said as part of his defense that his chief of staff, William Bowen, was leading an effort to integrate the club. Mr. Bowen said he and others were sponsoring nonwhite candidates for membership in the organization, but no application had been acted on yet. Club officials did not return telephone calls today.

"I'm going to do something unconventional for a politician -- when I make a mistake, I'm going to say I made a mistake, not go into some long, labored exercise," Mr. Clinton said today as he campaigned here, speaking of his efforts to "unite the nation across racial and economic lines" and accusing President Bush and the Republican Party of dividing the country racially.

Is it that unbelievable that the rich elite belong to racially homogenous country clubs?

No, it's an intentionally white-only country club, Einstein. Try reading the article, ass hat: The country club was being pressured to integrate but was not doing so.

Color you making excuses.

Nyuk is trying to deflect on to people that are not our President to cover up for Trumps dumbass moves and racial debacles. If a situation comes along that threatens our country Nyuk will try to deflect on to Obama or the Clintons, which essentially does nothing to help. And the way he does it is much like Trump does. Which is why there is little respect, more condemnation for what he posts. Is he feeling guilty for backing the idiot in office?

Bill and Hillary are both dirtbags. What's interesting is the timing of this thread.

The hits keep on coming for your traitor in office.

Obviously you can't explain why you progs are supposedly up in arms about Republicans and Trump - often calling them unfit/unelectable/evil, etc based on unsubstantiated racial accusations - but here you are intentionally looking away when your own people are shown to have a long, ugly, racist history.

That's the best way to point out false, manufactured, situational outrage by a bunch of lying, POS, deceptive pieces of trash trying to manipulate people for votes.

Of course you have nothing to say for yourselves so you whip up a conspiracy theory about "timing."

Oh I can tell you why I'm up in arms about both. #1 is Trump consistently lies. They are not lies that a person thinks are lies, they are lies that he tells and then turns around and says something else as if he never said the other. But we heard him. And there are A LOT of those....the Wall, the economy, the illegals at the border, oh hell I could go on and on. Trump has never condemned any pro Nazi or racial situation. Of course he is used to removing people from their homes due to their color.

The Republicans do nothing, absolutely nothing and I doubt they will at any given time during Trumps administration. Can't wait for November. Trumps blood pressure is going to rise. Watch for the explosion from him....and you.

So what? That made the news rounds in 1992 and probably hurt his ratings then. That was 25 years ago and Bill Clinton is no longer in public office. Youíre just desperately grasping at straws today.

South Carolina governor Henry McMaster currently belongs to an all-white country club. Go after him.

I didn't vote for either, but he pales next to the ****hole President for pure racism and hatred.

Which of course is why you worship him isn't it Klan boy?

Lol...25 years ago is yesterday when you're trying to deflect attention in order to defend der Fuhrer and his insane administration of criminals, thugs, liars, wife beaters, sexual predators and white supremacist racists.

Usually anywhere a round of cornhole is played is a defacto white-only establishment.

The funny thing is that these Republicans love to attack Hillary as if she is some kind of Marxist. In fact, Hillary is about as liberal as Nixon was.

It just shows how extremist the GOP has become. Let's face it: If Ronald Reagan was alive to today, the Republicans would rip him apart.

Reagan was WAY right of Nixon.

Nixon was a nakedly statist opportunist. Would've run as a Democrat if he thought it gave him better odds at power.

Nixon and Hillary would have been bffs.

Ok, all the libs have said something bad about the not-in-power Clintons. Can we talk about the issues at hand without you accusing us of ignoring dirty Billy Clinton's past raping and rascisting?

We get it. Clinton was a bad dude.

One of the reasons Hillary lost in 2016 is because black people did not show up to vote. Neither did women in general.

It's a simple equation. The Dems have to dump Clinton neoliberalism and go with FDR democratic principles. Their multiple decade hoodwink of the working people of America (for the benefits of Wall Street and the banksters) is over. They change the Dem party or progressives start a new party.
