YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED THIS BECAUSE TRUMP
HILLARY CLINTON'S RETURN TO CAMPAIGNING SPEECH IN GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA
The Donald has dominated the "news" media over the past few days (I mean, for real, the past year+) with his Double Header "Punking The News Media" Birther Announcement and his renewed call for someone to take out Hillary Clinton. Last time it was the Second Amendment gun folks he exhorted to take matters into their own hands and assassinate Hillary. This time he proposed that Secret Service protection be removed so that we all could "see what would happen."(JOKE! JOKE! HEE! HEE! DIDN'T REALLY MEAN IT. WAS JUST FUNNING WITH YA!)
Given the media's apparent belief that there's only one person running for election to President of the United States of America (it's NOT Hillary) you might have missed Hillary's speech last Thursday as she resumed the campaign trail. It was a pretty damned remarkable speech - measured, intelligent, rational - particularly in comparison to the trash talk that Trump seems to think are "policies." I post her speech today in case you were wondering what was going on elsewhere as The Donald was continuing his "Reality Show Run-Up To The Presidency:"
By the way, Greensboro, NC, occupies a particularly potent place in the Civil Rights Movement since the Woolworth Lunch Counter Sit-Ins by African Americans protesting the South's Jim Crow laws, were the first nationally televised protests. We watched young Black men and woman being beaten up for sitting on soda fountain stools in violation of the South's discriminatory laws and practices. They paved the way for the Freedom Rides, Voting Rights Efforts, Protest Marches and eventually the 1968 Civil Rights Act.
