‘Slave evoking’ passage in Hillary Clinton’s book resurfaces and has libs gasping for breath

They’re just learing about their hero now?

Liberals are aghast over an excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s 1996 bestseller book, “It Takes A Village,” about the Clintons using black prisoners to work in the Arkansas governor’s mansion when husband Bill was governor.

…a practice that brought to mind “slave labor” for social media users.

“When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion was a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs,” Clinton wrote.

She went on to describe a strange affinity for convicted “onetime” murderers, saying that the family became friendly with “a few of them, African-American men in their thirties who had already served 12 to 18 years of their sentences.”

Not that the Clintons weren’t quick to repreminand when needed.

“We enforced rules strictly and sent back to prison any inmate who broke a rule,” she added.

The passage was first tweeted by Jeanette Jing, an activist who supported Clinton’s Democratic opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders:

CNN goes full bore on Comey narrative too soon, look like fools when forced to reverse course


…and did Jing ever hear about it for drawing attention to the practice, as she shared in the following tweets:



The passage, though written more than 20 years ago, prompted a fierce backlash on social media, with much of it coming from fellow liberals.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
