Haitians to Protest Hillary Clinton’s Speech at New York City College
She exploited the country in her handling of its 2010 earthquake crisis
By Michael Sainato • 05/10/17 1:00pm

On June 8, Hillary Clinton is scheduled to serve as the Class of 2017 commencement speaker at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, New York, where she will also be awarded an honorary degree. The announcement has incited protests from several members of the Haitian community who plan to protest the speech and are pushing the college’s president, Rudy Crew, to rescind the invitation.

“Every time the Clintons get in a bind, they run to the black community to whitewash their tarnished image,” said Komokoda, the Haitian group protesting the speech, in a statement. “After Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath in the Monica Lewinsky affair, he brought in Jesse Jackson and a host of black preachers to lead prayers with him at the White House. To divert attention from her ‘deleted emails’ debacle, Hillary had Bill DeBlasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, bring her to Brownsville, one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Brooklyn, for a photo op with little black children. When newspaper editorials and cartoons were blasting her for her unending lies and demanding investigations and prosecutions, former New York City mayor David Dinkins brought her out for a keynote speech at his Dinkins Leadership & Public Policy Forum at Columbia University. Today, for her resurrection from a shameful defeat by the last person most reasonable people felt could ever be president of the United States, the dirty work falls to Rudy Crew.”


For Komokoda and many Haitians, the Clintons epitomize NGOs and corporations exploiting the crisis and relief efforts in Haiti for their own gain. Haitians also blame the Clintons for the controversial rule of former Haitian President Michel Martelly, who stepped down in February 2016 due to his record of corruption after the Clintons helped him get elected in 2010. The Washington Post reported, “Clinton reportedly pressured then-President René Préval with the loss of U.S. and international aid unless the election results were changed to fit the OAS’s recommendation.” That recommendation handed the election to Clinton ally Martelly—despite the drastic irregularities and controversies associated with the election. Manolia Charlotin, a Haitian journalist based in New York, told the Washington Post, “What does that mean as to her approach to foreign policy? To have a secretary of state visit a country, to make a stop, and as a result of that meeting, you have an illegal selection of leaders? How does that decision promote the American views of democracy?”


The Clintons are vicious predators who use the weakest among us for their own ends.

This should be published under, over, or beside every story about her new PAC and her return as top dog with the DNC.

Not to mention the blatant pandering, whenever they want to exploit a minority community, which, IMO, is as racist as it is phony.

Why Jesse Jackson would have wanted to help Bubba burnish his image is beyond me.

I've read that Bubba's famous "Sista Souljah moment" was actually to distance himself from Jesse Jackson, using her. In connection with that, it was revealed that Bubba had belonged to a whites only golf club. And, of course, they both celebrated the Confederacy when he was governor of Arkansas. And have made racist comments. And then there was the "racially charged" 2008 primary.

In all, how very "deplorable!"

They are barely human anymore. They seem to be only about personal ambition, the image they want to present--whether it actually has anything to do with them or not--and shape shifting.

Well I don't know about TV or cable news, but it was online at several local news websites. I was like Yes!!! I live only a few blocks from Medgar Evers, and if I could take the time off work, I'd join their protest. My hope is that this protest will at least get a few more people thinking and questioning.

a thumbs up though as he came to WI to support Labor during the protests while the stripping of public sector bargaining rights was being fought. His shoes must have been more comfortable than PBO's.

Peace out. Let's be radicals together on twitter. I'm at @Beddy63.

@WIProgressive was elected and looking at Jackson's face specifically and wondering what he must have felt while I was busy being happy and tearful. God. Now I have a lot more to wonder just how Jesse felt that night, he had to at least suspect what Barack was. And maybe he's OK with that, I admit I don't know much about their relationship. I just remember my own naivete on that night and just how much I've changed since then.
