Hillary Clintons Worldwide War on Women and Children

On Tuesday, December 5, the plebes of Boston will once again be graced with the presence of
Hillary Clinton. She will be in town to receive an award from the Big Sister Association as some
kind of hero to girls around the world. Hillary Clinton is the last person who should receive such
an award.

Here are the facts on Hillary Clinton:

Contrary to Clinton's assertion that victims of rape and sexual harassment should be heard, she
sought to silence and discredit the women who have charged her husband with those very
transgressions. She worked hard to manage the allegations against her husband, and destroy the
reputations of women like Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, Juanita Broderick, and Kathleen Willey.
Broderick, by the way, is now in her seventies and has had no justice for a crime that happened
when she was in her thirties, largely because of Hillary Clinton. Yet, her story has remained
consistent from day one.

As First Lady, Clinton stood behind her husband, President Bill Clinton, as he gutted welfare. In
doing so, the Clintons targeted black and Latino women and children all for political expediency,
portraying them as lazy people leeching off hard-working whites. The Personal Responsibility
and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 ended assistance to the poorest and most
desperate women and children in the nation, completely ignoring the realities of poverty.

It was at this point that Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children's Defense Fund and on
whose board Clinton once sat, broke with Clinton politically. Her husband, Peter Edelman, quit
his high-level job in Bill Clinton's Department of Health and Human Services in protest after the
bill was signed.

Likewise, Hillary Clinton led the charge to pass her husband's disastrous 1994 Violent Crime
Control and Law Enforcement Act which, once again, targeted people of color. It exploded the
prison population, with African Americans making up 80-90% of drug offenders sent to prison.
The bill barely touched the crime rate, instead jailing men and women of color, breaking up
families, and displacing children.

Her foreign policy decisions proved more than a bit harmful to chidren around the world.

Clinton-era sanctions on Iraq are reported to have resulted in the deaths of more than a half
million Iraqi children under the age of five, greater than the number of children killed in
Hiroshima. (A price that Madeline Albright said was worth it.)
