WASHINGTON (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton said Saturday that Americans should be mindful of the nation’s changing demographics, which led to the election of Barack Obama as president.
He told an Arab-American audience of 1,000 people that the U.S. is no longer just a black-white country, nor a country that is dominated by Christians and a powerful Jewish minority, given the growing numbers of Muslims, Hindus and other religious groups here.
Excuse me? What was that? A former president is playing the Jews-control-everything card? We know that Bill Clinton panders to whatever audience is paying him to speak, but he wasn’t even paid for this one. Did anyone else catch this blatant nod to a racial slur, or has it so entered our language and culture lexicons that we’re not supposed to bat an eyelash anymore?
