Hillary Clinton – Marxist Revolutionary


Hillary ClintonDuring Hillary Clinton’s college years she was involved with Black Panthers, Communist Party leaders, and more. Here are the facts.

By the time she entered Yale Law School in 1969, Hillary was already a celebrity radical on campus. Life magazine had featured Hillary in a piece titled, “The Class of ’69,” which showcased three student activists whom Life’s editors deemed the best and brightest of the year. A line Hillary used in her Wellesley College commencement speech appeared under her photo: “Protest is an attempt to forge an identity.” (1)

At Yale, Hillary helped edit the Yale Review of Law and Social Action – a leftwing journal which promoted cop-killing and featured cartoons of pig-faced police. (2)

A series of hard-left mentors introduced Hillary to the brass-knuckle realities of revolutionary activism. As a Wellesley undergraduate, she met and interviewed radical organizer Saul Alinsky, whose Machiavellian tactics she admired. Hillary’s senior thesis supported Alinsky’s call for class warfare. (3)

At Yale, Hillary found a new Svengali, in the form of left-wing law professor Thomas Emerson, known around campus as “Tommy the Commie.” Emerson recruited Hillary and other students to help monitor the trial of the New Haven Nine for civil rights violations. Hillary took charge of the operation, scheduling the students in shifts, so that student monitors would always be present in the courtroom. She befriended and worked as an intern with Panther lawyer Charles Garry. (4)

Note: The New Haven Nine were members of the Black Panthers who tortured another Black Panther to death. They were given very light sentences. “Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977,” reports John McCaslin in the Washington Times. “The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley’s torture, got elected to a California school board.” (5)

At the time, many credited left-wing pressure for the mild prison sentences.

By the time the Black panther trial ended, Hillary had a national profile as a campus radical. Her far left activism won her an internship on the other side of the country the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft in 1972. Treuhaft had previously been a leader in the American Communist Party. His law firm specialized in representing left wing clients and organization.
