Sanders rep Dawson calls Hillary a racist sexist

As if last night’s snafu in which Dr. Paul Song, speaking at a Sanders rally in NYC, appeared to call Hillary Clinton a “Democratic whore,” wasn’t enough, there is now video of a second prominent Sanders supporter, Rosario Dawson, calling Hillary Clinton a racist and a sexist (which is insane).

At a Sanders event in Brooklyn called “Brooklyn Berners,” Dawson, an actress and singer, was speaking to a crowd when she started criticizing the former secretary of state’s foreign policy views.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Bellini was there:

Dawson is no stranger to controversy. Just two weeks ago, speaking on behalf of Bernie Sanders, the actress attacked President Obama, claiming incorrectly that within two months of Obama’s swearing-in Democrats lost faith in the president. (Attacks on President Obama have been a common refrain from the Sanders campaign.)

In fact, Dawson is wrong. Here is Obama’s approval rating his first six month’s in office.

A week before that, Dawson raised eyebrows by attacking the credibility of “legendary farm labor, feminist, and voting rights activist” Dolores Huerta. The actress called Huerta a member of “the establishment,” a common slur used by both Sanders and Republican Donald Trump for people who don’t endorse their preferred candidate.

Actress and singer Rosario Dawson grows testy with the WSJ's Jason Bellini.

It’s surprising that the Sanders campaign is continuing to use such incendiary language about Democrats in general, and Secretary Clinton in particular, as Sanders’ negatives continue to rise, possibly because he’s become so angry in the past few weeks as it became evident that the nomination was becoming increasingly out of his grasp. Sanders’ popularity plateaued in February, while unfavorables continue to rise:

It’s also surprising that Dawson would launch such a personal attack on Hillary Clinton less than a day after a top Sanders supporter, at a rally with Sanders himself, appeared to suggest that Mrs. Clinton is a “whore.” Sanders had to personally apologize for that slur just this morning. Here is what Song said:

Of course, the good news for Dr. Song is that Dawson has now stolen his thunder as the inappropriately-angriest Sanders supporter of the day.

The question remains when Sanders will start apologizing for Dawson’s increasingly embarrassing rhetoric as well. At this point, the new angry tone of the Sanders campaign is no longer a glitch — it’s a feature. It’s a conscious decision that Sanders made as a last-ditch effort to win the race, or burn the party down trying.

    I agree wholeheartedly with Dawson; she told the truth and should never back down. We live in a society where we are expected to be politically correct while we ignore the lies of politicians. Hillary is a liar; we all know it. That’s why she continues to hide her speeches to Walmart and she placed her email server in her home. Never back down Dawson, never.

  2. Don Chandler says:

    Bernie has beaten Hillary in several primary lately, so I guess Bernie can beat a status quo conservative.

  3. Gary D. Vaughn says:

    No. We know reality, unlike Berners and Cons. Unicorns are never free, and Bernie has no chance of beating ANY Conservative.

  4. Gary D. Vaughn says:

    Bernie’s campaign has become Trump lite. Guess who WON’T get my vote next month in our primary.

    Yes it would involve only that many. And are you aware as to why that is?
    The loss of the Dixiecrat South to the GOP. And do you know why that is?
    The Civil Rights legislation of the 1960’s. And the loss of the South also allowed for the rise of the McGovernites in the party and total electoral lockout from the White House for a good 20 years. It is the perfect example of the axiom, ‘no good deed goes unpunished’. And as to ” I think we’ll all agree” stuff, the great accomplishments of President Obama domestically, besides just bringing basic humanity and rationality back to the top spot, in my opinion would have been gay rights, healthcare and progress on climate change.
    Gay rights was the first thing Bill Clinton took up in office. He made an attempt to do away with the total ban in the military that Reagan had put in place.
    The best he got was DADT. Which was bad but certainly and improvement and a foundation for future action when the public had a change of heart.
    Healthcare? Hilary Clinton’s signature effort during the Clinton years.
    The insurance companies and the medical establishments, not to mention all of the GOP mobilized against it and it died a slow death in Congress.
    Climate change? Now who was that guy ….Allen, Al somebody. Oh yeah.
    Al Gore. The Clinton’s Vice President who was the first person in Congress or in politics for that matter to raise the alarm about Global Warming and took quite a beating from the Elder Bush for doing so. I believe he referred to Gore as “The Ozone man”. Nice.
    Of course, over time, issues that are of real import cannot be denied.
    And over time, the public has come to see the importance of these all of the above. Obama just carried on to conclusion what was started in the Clinton administration.
    As to number 2) by this time in the process, when it was clear that she would not be the nominee and that the party had settled on Obama, Hilary Clinton had withdrawn from the race, gracefully and graciously, and endorsed the party nominee. Without any reservation. It was Bill Clinton who gave a rousing speech, one of the best and most effective, at the convention in 2012. Lest you forget. The most you could say about the attacks of the Clinton camp on Obama during the primary race is that she did not call him things like “corporate whore” or anything like that. She raised the issue of experience and Clinton dissed Obama primary wins, kind of like the Sanders camp is doing to Clinton wins now. That was about it.
    No one say you are not ‘allowed’ to criticize. And I am also ‘allowed’ to criticize your criticism as inaccurate and unfair. Have a good one.

  11. Badgerite says:

    How quickly we forget. DADT was an improvement over the policy in place prior to that. The one instituted by Reagan which was a total ban. The Clinton’s, when first elected, made doing away with that ban one of their first priorities. And they paid for it politically. A lot. And the Democratic party did.
    That was the beginning of the GOP seeing an electoral advantage in bashing gays and they proceeded to make such policies one of the platform planks of their party. DOMA, of course, was also GOP. To its core. And Bill Clinton signed it in great measure to try to staunch the damage done to the Democratic party by taking the side of gay rights at a time when it was not all the rage like it is now and to forestall any movement for a Federal Constitutional Amendment along those same lines. As it was, the Christian right pushed through any number of such amendments on the state level which were finally only recently ruled unconstitutional. And here is the thing.
    Had the far right been successful in any movement toward a federal Constitutional Amendment against gay marriage or other gay rights, those court decisions would not exist. It is that simple. Hmmmmm.
    Or maybe not that simple. Which is why no one seems to be aware of it on the left. You did it all yourselves. Uh huh.

  12. MG1 says:

    And John, here’s something else you wrote about Hillary Clinton back in 2008:

    “We have forgiven you for boasting of your ‘support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans’…

    We have even forgiven you repeatedly praising Senator McCain at Senator Obama’s expense, and your **own** expense, and the Democratic **ticket’s** expense.

    But Senator, we cannot forgive you this.

    ‘You know, my husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.’

    We cannot forgive you this — not because it is crass and low and unfeeling and brutal.

    **This** is **un**-forgivable, because this nation’s deepest shame, its most enduring horror, its most terrifying legacy, is political assassination. . . .

    And to not appreciate, immediately — to **still** not appreciate tonight — just **what** you have done… is to reveal an incomprehension of the America you seek to lead.

    This, Senator, is too much.

    Because a senator — a politician — a **person** — who can let hang in mid-air the prospect that she might just be sticking around in part, just in case the other guy gets shot — has no business being, and no capacity **to** be, the President of the United States.”

    I totally agree with you, she has no business being, and no capacity to be the President of the United States.

    Hey John, forgot you once called Hillary a racist?

    “It just keeps happening again and again and again. The Clintons keeps doing things, saying things, that sound awfully racist. . .But having a seemingly-racist attack from the Clinton folks on Obama every single week, after a while, you don’t get to play the “I had no idea!” card anymore.

    I don’t think I’m going to bother engaging myself over here in John’s All-Hillary-All-the-Time-HillaryBlog anymore. I mean, in the past few days Bernie has had a tremendous rally in Washington Square (larger than Obama’s rally) with 27,000+ in the Square and almost 20,000 who couldn’t get in; Bernie on line supporting striking Verizon workers while Hillary sat back and counted the $225k she pocketed for speaking to Verizon’s overlords (a speech which she won’t allow the hoi polloi to read); and then he’s gone at the invitation of the Vatican to talk about wealth inequality and justice; and Hillary flies off to the home of a California venture capitalist where it costs $33,400 per person to have dinner with her.

    Somebody’s values, priorities, and integrity have become corrupted…

  23. Mirador1978 says:

    “Bashing Obama, the most successful Democratic president in recent memory”

    1) “Recent memory” would involve 1, maybe 2 Democratic presidents. I think we’ll all agree that he’s better than Clinton and Clintonism

    2) Hillary did plenty of Obama bashing, going so far as to start the secret Kenyan Muslim smear.

    3) The Democratic party isn’t supposed to be the party of authoritarians. We are allowed to criticize our leaders and we are allowed to have primaries where more than 1 person gets to run. We are also allowed to have leaders that aren’t from political dynasties.

  24. Voodoo Chile says:

    Yeah, the Democratic Party of the 1960s was really something. Too bad the Clintons and the DLC came along and turned it into the party of Wall Street and the CEO class.

  25. Badgerite says:

    Hilary Clinton was the only person when visiting China to actually make a public speech on the plight of women world wide. Rosario Dawson has done what?
    And there it is. This is your typical Sanders supporter. Bashing Obama, the most successful Democratic president in recent memory and calling the party a party of “corporate wholes” and they wonder why the party regulars (see Super Delegates) are not real keen on Sanders being the nominee. Go figure. Before these attacks I would have voted for Sanders as the nominee with something bordering on enthusiasm. Now, for me, he would just be the lesser of two evils. Both domestically and internationally, I think he would make a mess. Maybe he would get his sea legs after a bit, but I think it might be like Carter who came in with high principles and then ran into the Soviets in Afghanistan and the Ayatollah in Iran. The world does not play fair and it is highly unlikely that treating the Palestinians with “dignity and respect” is all that is necessary to ending the blood feuds that exists in the Middle East. And since Sanders brought it up, the Gaza conflict was not all about ineffective rockets. What is was about are the tunnels ( numbers vary but I have read reports of as high as 23 tunnels with 66 access points to Israel from Gaza ) that Hamas had built. These tunnels had been used to cross the border and attack and kidnap isolated Israeli soldiers and patrols. Which, of course, is an act of war.
    Both the New York Times and the Washington Post have articles on this. Find the links yourself if you are interested. America is freaking out over immigrants who just want to come here to work. Israel had a hostile force building tunnels allowing them free access into Israel and ready escape after an attack. Was their response “disproportionate”? Yes. Was it unjustified? No. I don’t think “treating them with dignity and respect” is actually going to do a damned thing at this point in the conflict. It is a minority of extremists that are driving the conflict now. And if Obama and John Kerry, whom I am sure, tried to treat the Palestinian people as a whole with respect, couldn’t affect the situation, I doubt that Sanders can. And I think to pretend otherwise is naive. In the extreme. Israel did leave Gaza, after all. It was once occupied territory. They removed Israelis settlers, by force, from Gaza to do so. What they got in return was rockets and tunnels and ongoing attacks.
    So, which came first? The tunnels and the rockets or the strangle hold of Israel on Gaza?
    Tough call. Tougher than Sanders or his followers want to admit.

  26. Badgerite says:

    Really. Remind me again which party it was that actually got the Voting Rights Act of 1965 through Congress and signed into law. My memory is a little foggy here. Was that the “Socialist” Party? Oh wait. No. That was the Democratic Party. The “establishment”. And at that time it was clear to the president who lead the effort to get the bill through Congress and who signed that bill into law that that piece of legislation would cost the Democratic party the South in any electoral contest from then on. And it has.

    Probably pointless to answer in this case, but anyway that was me. As others (thank you) have pointed out, I did not say anything about women of color. I said something about one person. I don’t think all people who appear to be partly of non-European heritage are anything in particular, and I do think that making some judgement about someone who demonstrates their knowledge and intellect or lack of it publicly is OK, irrespective of the fact that they appear to be partly of non-European heritage. Or not.

  30. emjayay says:

    In case anyone is wondering, her answer would be B.

  31. Iain Tweedy says:

    But you misunderstand, John has his favorite candidate, and by distorting things Bernie supporters are saying about HIllary in a primary contest, by extension Hillary Clinton is responsible for Mr. Aravosis’ half-truths and embellishments.

  32. goulo says:

    Your blog post headline says Dawson “calls Hillary a racist sexist”.

    But the quotation in the article says that she said Clinton’s foreign policy “sounds kind of racist to me…seems kind of sexist and classist to me.”

    She said that of Clinton’s foreign policy. She did not say Clinton is a racist sexist.

    In past posts, you have shown yourself able to distinguish the difference between a racist/sexist/homophobic policy/action and a racist/sexist/homophobic person.

    (E.g. in http://aravosis.wpengine.com/2009/05/obama-about-to-fire-gay-arabic-speaking-dod-linguist.html criticizing homophobic government policies while explicitly noting that you don’t think Obama himself is homophobic, even as he oversaw those homophobic policies and dragged his feet for years on doing anything about them.)

    But in this case, I can only suppose that you intentionally blurred the distinction between policy and person, and intentionally misstated what was said in order to make a more scandalous clickbait headline than the more accurate “Dawson says Clinton’s foreign policy sounds kind of racist and sexist”.

    Even if you sincerely believe that she was insinuating that Clinton herself is a racist sexist person, that’s not what she said; it’s dishonest partisan headline writing.

  33. TiberiusB says:

    So, the proof that Hillary Clinton was a stupendous Sec. of State comes from…hillaryclinton.com? Hillary is great, just ask her, she’ll tell you. While it is hilarious to see so many posters get outraged over the “slur” (please) against Huerta, a woman I can pretty well guarantee they never heard of until this year, the fact is, Dawson only criticized her twice, once for backing the establishment, and the other time for perpetuating the falsehood that Bernie Sanders supporters were booing her and demanding “English only” at a Vegas rally. In the first case, Hillary Clinton is the establishment, that can’t credibly be argued, and Huerta backs her. If you are running an anti-establishment campaign, pointing that out seems like a given and not much of a slur if you don’t think the establishment is broken. As for the second case, well, that actually happened and I don’t recall Huerta ever apologizing for her misinformed tweets which got a lot of press at the time.

    Meanwhile, new Marist poll: Clinton 57 – Sanders 40.

    Tuesday can’t come soon enough.

    she thought she was being a really smart politician with her response. No one’s gonna trip her up on the record. LOLOLOL

    Bernie’s letting his spokes people destroy him with the Democratic Party at a time when he needs all the Party support he can get. Does anyone seriously think that if he were by some freak occurrence, to get elected, that he would be able to get ANYTHING accomplished in the face of Republican obstructionism and House and Senate Democrats who strongly dislike him? This whole “Bernie Sanders is the only honest man in the world” shtick is getting old fast. And this is coming from someone who voted for him in the primary, knowing for sure Clinton would win. I had hoped he’d continue to run the honest, non-attack oriented campaign that he started and drive Hillary further to the left. I was wrong about that.

    If she really believed what she was saying was the truth, why the evasiveness when a reporter asks her to confirm that what she said in front of a crowd of people is what she meant to say? That’s not a ‘gotcha’ question, and the statement was not ambiguous. Why avoid answering? So bizarre.

    She may be strong, but she is also ignorant. And worse yet, too stupid to know how ignorant she is.

    Well said.
    I look forward to his hit piece on David Brock…

    Look at John Aravosis mansplain and whitesplain to a strong woman of color. Somebody needs to check their white male privilege.

    I don’t know why you are pissed off. Hillary supporters have been calling Bernie Sanders and liberals in general racists and sexists since the beginning of last summer. And Hillary ran a very racist campaign in 2008.

  73. emjayay says:

    Why would any candidate for a presidential nomination permit a barely informed person like this to speak for them? She’s the kind of idiot whose knowledge does not go beyond a few superficial cliches and gives progressives a bad name. And the cheering crowd is just as stupid.

    This D-list “actress” seems to have forgotten Barbie Sanders voted for the Afghan war and voted to continue the Iraq war 4 times
