The last few weeks on the campaign trail have featured Hillary Clinton hurtling charges of racism at Donald Trump.
She kicked off the push with a major speech linking the GOP nominee to the “alt-right.”
But Hillary Clinton did not envision the move would boomerang back to her.
When Hillary began to smear Trump as a racist, it opened up a discussion on her own racist past.
Trump labeled her a bigot because as a typical Democrat, Hillary campaigns as if she is entitled to minorities’ votes, despite Democrat policies failing those communities.
“Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” Trump said at a campaign rally here, speaking to an overwhelmingly white audience of supporters in the deep-red state. “She doesn’t care what her policies have done to your communities. She has no remorse. She’s going to do nothing for Hispanics and African-Americans.”
Trump last week accused Clinton of “bigotry” — a term Clinton has occasionally invoked on the trail as well to criticize Trump — but ratcheted up that language Wednesday night. His prepared remarks, which the Trump campaign released ahead of his latest verbal assault, included the “bigot” accusation.
Trump’s move also honed attention on Hillary’s past.
Initially, many Black Lives Matter activists were cool to Hillary’s campaign because of her support for the 1994 Crime Bill, which they claim increased mass incarceration.
Hillary’s speech backfired BIG LEAGUE

Hillary defended the crime bill by referring to black teenagers as “super-predators” who must be treated like dogs.
The Washington Post reports on her remarks:
“They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators,'” Clinton said in 1996, at the height of anxiety during her husband’s administration about high rates of crime and violence. “No conscience, no empathy, we can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”
Hillary is also a strong proponent of gun control, which would disarm minorities who wish to defend themselves.
Data shows the rate of concealed carry permits are increasing among minorities.
But Democrat policies have always hurt minorities, despite the fact the party has mined those communities for votes.
The War on Poverty has been a failure.
Democratic domination of education has led to failing schools and too many children left behind.
And Hillary is promising to double-down on this failure.
Do you think Hillary’s attack on Trump as a racist will backfire?
