HILLARY CLINTON TO GIVE NOMINATION ACCEPTANCE SPEECH
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jul. 28, 2016) — At approximately 4:15 p.m. EDT, DNC Chairwoman Marcia Fudge gaveled-in the last day of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, which began on Monday.
Hillary and former President Bill Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, will be a speaker on Thursday.
At 4:47 p.m., former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa advocated “giving voice to the unrepresented,” referring to the estimated 11 million illegal aliens in the country. He said that Hillary Clinton will “build a wall” to include others in creating an America “that we all know and love.”
Common themes at the convention are “stronger together,” ending “racism,” expanding health care, fighting “climate change,” education, civil rights, equal pay for women, “sensible gun reform,” and “social justice.”
At 4:57 p.m., Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin was introduced. Griffin invoked the June 12 terrorist attack in Orlando, FL and said that Clinton’s general election opponent, Donald Trump, inappropriately advocated himself as the champion of “LGBTQ” rights. “When you attack one of us, you attack all of us,” he shouted to the audience.
On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, Clinton surrogates and supporters bashed Trump as an out-of-touch businessman whose corporate bankruptcies have harmed thousands of people and businesses.
A report by Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars quotes a Bernie Sanders delegate as claiming that empty seats at the convention have been replaced in some cases with paid attendees, or “seat fillers.” Many Sanders supporters reportedly walked out of the convention after Clinton was officially nominated in light of nearly 20,000 emails exposed by Wikileaks last Friday which showed that DNC operatives, including its former chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, openly favored Clinton during the primaries and sought narratives which could be used to discredit Sanders’s campaign.
