WATCH: Hillary Clinton Slams Alabama GOP For Resurrecting Jim Crow Law (VIDEO)

Recently, the governor of Alabama, Robert Bentley came under severe scrutiny after his budget cuts included closing over 30 government offices responsible for issuing driver licenses and photo IDs necessary to vote in predominantly African-American communities.

Bentley, of course, denies the closings as being racially driven:

To suggest the closure of the drivers license offices is a racial issue is simply not true, and to suggest otherwise should be considered an effort to promote a political agenda

Friday, Bentley decided to not close the offices completely, but instead open once a month, amid pressure from civil rights advocates and Democratic lawmakers.

My local DMV is open 4 days a week and its still a mad house! So how is one day a month sufficient?

The reversal of his decision did not stop Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton from letting Alabama law-makers have it. Clinton spoke at the Alabama Democratic Convention on Saturday and voiced her concerns regarding the issue:

Now here in Alabama, without the right kind of ID, its nearly impossible to vote. And I followed when Governor Bentley and his administration announced plans this month to close 31 drivers license offices across the state. They include every single county where African-Americans make up more than 75% of registered voters.

She referred to this type of voter blocking as a blast from the Jim Crow past and said:

Im not picking on Alabama, I just think we got to stop this before it gets out of control. Believe me, they wont stop with rural counties and drivers license offices, right.

Hillary Clinton hit the nail right on the head! The attempt to close these offices is another example of government-sanctioned racial oppression. The Republican party has been disenfranchising black voters for years. Thats why they pass Voter ID laws and close DMVs, polling places, and purge voter rolls. It is incredibly disturbing that fifty years after the Civil Rights Movements and more than century after the 13th Amendment was passed, the GOP is continuing their racism. Clearly they need to be reminded that voting is a right, NOT a privilege.

    Thanks, Obama! This is quite obviously all your fault.

  • The Republicans are racist to the bone and in 2015 we cant put up with this we need to vote the repubs out of office in Alabama and all other states for the sake of our country


  • Otto Greif

    She has no accomplishments to run on so she has to do this.


    • SickOfBernieBots

      Lawyer, First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State, Front-Runner. Nope, no accomplishments.


      • Otto Greif

        You listed positions she occupied, not accomplishments.


        • SickOfBernieBots

          What are your accomplishments? This should be good.


          • Otto Greif

            You cant name any accomplishments so now you are changing the subject.


          • SickOfBernieBots

            Not really. I cant help it if you want to obfuscate.


      • Otto Greif

        First Lady, that cracks me up.


        • SickOfBernieBots

          Hopefully, youll be as jolly on Jan. 20, 2017 when Madam President Clinton is sworn in.

  • Awww, look at Hillary, out whoring for votes. Kinda all she has left, since she has no record of substantive accomplishment to draw upon. Heck, even OBummer had some successes to draw upon to show to the American people. What does Hillary have? We all know how false she is. At least Sanders comes across as authentic. Hillary is lying all the time and we all know it.
