No, Black Lives Don’t Matter to Bill and Hillary Clinton — Especially Haitian Ones

Despite what the Mothers of the Movement believe, black lives don’t matter to Bill and Hillary Clinton. Just ask the Haitians who’ve spent years trashing the Clinton’s for screwing them over and turning the tragic earthquake that rocked the tiny Caribbean country in 2010 into a lucrative venture for their closest allies.

Indeed, in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti — while 316,000 lifeless bodies lay buried under rubble, and while 300,000 Haitians suffered from injuries, with another 1.3 million displaced — Hillary Clinton’s family and monied cronies cashed in on the back of the tragedy-stricken Caribbean country.

Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, landed a lucrative and historically rare Haitian “gold exploitation permit,” while Clinton Foundation donors, including Digicel mobile phone company founder Denis O’Brien, were winning multi-million dollar contracts that would siphon massive profits from the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

While then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s State Department was funneling billions in relief funds to rebuild Haiti, the Clinton Foundation was leveraging its influence to guide high-dollar contracts to Clinton cronies who would go on to make millions off the catastrophe that had claimed so many lives on the island.

“I deal through the Clinton Foundation,” Tony Rodham said according to a transcript of his testimony during court proceedings, obtained by The New York Times. “That gets me in touch with the Haitian officials. I hound my brother-in-law [Bill Clinton], because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from. And he can’t do it until the Haitian government does it.”

On December 5, 2014, Haitians gathered outside to protest Bill and Hillary Clinton’s “full support” of former Haitian President Michel Martelly — who placed his criminally-inclined cronies in positions of power.

In March 2015, a large group of Haitians protested outside the Clinton offices in Manhattan, New York.

This past January, six years after the deadly earthquake in Haiti, a group of Haitians gathered, again, in New York City at the Clinton Foundation headquarters to protest former President Bill Clinton’s role as head of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission.

“Today is the 12th of January 2016, six years after the earthquake. And for us, it was important to be in front of the Clinton Foundation, because Bill Clinton, as head of the IHRC, Interim Haiti Recovery Commission, was responsible for the $6 billion that came into his hands,” protester Dahoud Andre said at the time.

“He had unlimited control of this money. Six years after the earthquake, not much has changed, and as a matter of fact, Haiti is in worse condition than it was in 2010. Only Bill Clinton can tell the world what happened with this money,” Andre added.

Indeed, Twitter users blasted Hillary Clinton last month calling her a “liar” who “stole billions in donations meant to rebuild Haiti,” because she doesn’t “give a f*ck about Black people.”

The Democratic National Convention has also been visited by Haitians, who’ve railed against Bill and Hillary Clinton’s transgressions against their country.

“We hope that [Clinton Cash] film gets spread around so more people are informed about what’s going on there,” a female protester told Breitbart News on Monday, referencing the motion picture adaptation of the New York Times bestselling book Clinton Cash

The protester said they “basically stole the money,” when asked if she had an issue with the Clinton Foundation.

“It never got to the masses,” she continued, “it never trickled down to the masses. And the Clintons have been doing evil deeds in Haiti for years.”

When Bill and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had the full force of the federal government at the their disposal, they squandered an opportunity to help the devastated people of Haiti and instead cashed in on their misery.

Black lives didn’t matter to Bill and Hillary Clinton then, and they don’t matter to them now.
