Hillary calls Flint water crisis racism; wait until you see ‘racist’ city council at blame

Democrats never miss an opportunity to cry racism even when that assertion makes no sense.

Enter Hillary Clinton, who used the Flint, Michigan, water crisis  where people have been drinking, bathing and cooking with lead-contaminated water — as an opportunity to pander to black voters.

The Democratic presidential front-runner told a mostly black audience at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Sunday that the situation was “not just as an environmental disaster and a health crisis,” but “a civil rights issue.”

“If it had been a rich white suburb where the water was brown and smelly, people would have come immediately to the rescue of those families to protect those children to make sure they had the best chance to live up to their God-given potential!” the peddling former secretary of state said.

She also took the opportunity to paint herself as the hero and Republican Gov. Rick Snyder as the villain.

“I started talking about (the crisis) and pointing it out, and created some additional political pressure,” she told the crowd.

“Within two hours (Gov. Snyder) made that request (to the Obama administration for help),” she added.

But Gov. Snyder told “Fox & Friends” a different story on Monday.

“The way this really happened is the community made a decision, the city and the county all wanted to switch away from Detroit’s water system back in 2013 and there was a 7-1 city council vote to say let’s move to this new water authority,” he said.

OK, if the city council voted to change water systems, then they must be the racists who don’t care about the people of Flint, right?
