Sunday after receiving The International Unity Award in Selma, Alabama, Hillary Clinton said that “racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House.”
“This is a time, my friends, when fundamental rights, civic virtue, freedom of the press, the rule of law, truth, facts and reason are under assault,” said Clinton, who made the remarks in Selma, Alabama, as she accepted an award at an event marking the 54th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday.” “And make no mistake, we are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy.”
Although Hillary didn’t directly mention President Trump, she took aim at his administration by suggesting that the White House espouses racist views.
“When racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House, when hard-fought-for civil rights are being stripped back, when the single most important fight of our time, which makes it possible to fight every other fight and must be, as Frederick Douglass would say, our North Star — the fight to protect our vote — is not gathering the momentum and the energy and the passion it deserves, we have a lot of work to do, don’t we?” she said.
