Hillary screeches that providing inner-city and poor students with more choice in education will lead to a a “school of the Church of the White Supremacist ” and a “School of the Jihad.”
CLINTON: Suppose that you were meeting today to decide who got the vouchers. First parent comes and says ‘I want to send my daughter to St. Peter’s Roman Catholic School’ and you say ‘Great, wonderful school, here’s your voucher. Next parent who comes says, ‘I want to send, you know, my child to the Jewish Day School. Great here’s your voucher! Next parent who comes says, “I want to send my child to the private school that I’ve already dreamed of sending my child to.’ Fine. Here’s your voucher.
Next parent who comes says, ‘I want to send my child to the school of the Church of the White Supremacist.’ You say, ‘Wait a minute. You can’t send…we’re not giving a voucher for that.’ And the parent says, ‘Well, the way that I read Genesis, Cain was marked, therefore I believe in white supremacy. And therefore, you gave it to a Catholic parent, you gave it to a Jewish parent, gave it to a secular private parent. Under the Constitution, you can’t discriminate against me.’
Suppose the next parent comes and says ‘I want to send my child to the School of…the Jihad.’ Wait a minute! We’re not going to send a child with taxpayers dollars to the School of Jihad. ‘Well, you gave it to the Catholics, gave it to the Jews, gave it to the private secular people. You’re gonna tell me I can’t? I’m a taxpayer. Under the Constitution.’
Now, tell me how we’re going to make those choices.

Lorie Byrd at Polipundit:
I wonder why the Republicans have not capitalized on the issue of school vouchers, which are very popular with non-Jesse Jackson-following blacks in America. This could be just the opening needed to bring the issue to the front burner. Let’s see Hillary engage in a debate over vouchers using this kind of rhetoric. Works for me.
Did someone slip some bourbon in her coffee before she went on stage or something? There are already voucher programs in parts of the US. Show me any of them where they dole out funds to Osama Bin Laden Elementary or the Robert “Sheets” Byrd White Power Middle School. It’s not happening now, nor will it happen.
Also, may I add that Hillary Clinton sent Chelsea to an exclusive private school. So, what’s her real beef with allowing ordinary parents, who aren’t as rich as the Clintons, to get the same kind of education for their children?
