To this day, I have no idea what she was talking about.
I have decided that she didn't actually have a point to make—she just saw an opportunity to use the word "slaves" in front of Black people and couldn't help herself. (She's a Clinton...that's what they do!)
Hillary hysteria is now taking aim at the Sensenbrenner bill (well, immigration reform in general is more like it) which would make illegal entry into the United States a felony.
In a news conference yesterday, the Senator from New York had this to say about the measure:
"It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures," Clinton said. "This bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan - and probably even Jesus himself." Hil has a holy cow over immigrant bill By Michael McAuliff Helen Kennedy, New York Daily News, March 23, 2006]
Is Hillary Clinton talking about the Jesus I think she's talking about? I wasn't aware they were acquainted...
It has been my experience that when a politician starts plucking nonsensical arguments out the air (especially when they reference the scriptures without actually quoting one) it simply means they have nothing else to go on.
New York Congressman Pete King co-authored the bill with Sensenbrenner and shot back at Hillary in the same article:
"I hope Sen. Clinton is a better legislator than she is a theologian."
Hee hee...don't we all, Congressman.
