Cornel West: “Sister Hillary Clinton Is the Milli Vanilli of American Politics”


West accused Hillary Clinton of only gave “lip service” to social justice policies and compared her with the German music duo Milli Vanilli.

 

he U.S. philosopher Cornel West accused Hillary Clinton of only giving “lip service” to social justice policies, comparing her to German duo Milli Vanilli, whose Grammy award was revoked after it was revealed that the pair had not actually sung their songs, but lipsynched to other singers.

“Sister Hillary Clinton is the Milli Vanilli of American politics … She lip-syncs, she gives lip service. But when it comes to policy, who supported the crime bill? Who supported, not just the deregulating of banks, but also pulled the rug from under welfare?” West said in an interview on CNN.

West, a Sanders supporter who is also a prominent member of the Democratic Socialists of America, said last week that the Vermont senator is “better for black people” than his Democratic rival Clinton. He officially endorsed Sanders in August and has given speeches on his behalf at historically black colleges and universities.
