Dr. Paul Song Tries to Walk Back Calling Hillary Clinton a “Corporate Democratic Whore” at Sanders NY Rally

Dr. Paul Song, a speaker at Bernie Sanders’ rally at Washington Square Park in New York City, used the term “corporate Democratic whores.” It seems to me that he was referring to Hillary Clinton. Shameful.

Will the Sanders campaign repudiate that ugly rhetoric, or will the excuse the use as they did over Killer Mike’s uterus comment about Hillary Clinton at his Morehouse College event?

Full text of Paul Song’s comments [H/T Blue Nation Review]:  “Now Secretary Clinton has said that Medicare for all will never happen. [boos] Well, I agree with Secretary Clinton that Medicare for all will never happen if we have a president who never aspires for something greater than the status quo. [cheers] Medicare for all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate Democratic whores [cheers] who are beholden to Big Pharma and the private insurance industry instead of us.”

At first Dr. Song was very proud of his speech:

He tried to walk it back:

Bernie Sanders even thanked Dr. Song:

Sanders has some really colorful surrogates — Cornel West, who has repeatedly attacked President Obama; Rosario Dawson, the new village idiot; Killer Mike, no words; Tim Robbins, who thinks SC voters are insignificant because his candidate lost; Susan Sarandon, would rather vote for Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders’ campaign is toxic. It’s safe to say I will not support him if he’s the Democratic presidential nominee.

By the way, the #DemocraticWhore’s husband, Bill Clinton, helped to secure the release of Paul Song’s sister-in-law, Laura Ling, from a North Korean prison. So much for gratitude.

    He is a disgusting misogynistic POS. so if you didn’t mean her, who DID you mean? You belong with Bernocchio. Pants on fire!

      But Hillary is a corporate whore, don’t put a sexist spin to this sheeple

    • MasterRothschild

      But a whore is a whore and Hillary is definitely a CORPORATE WHORE! Just like the author of this article, Mira Hutchinson.

      We’re all very proud of Dr. Song for having the bravery to stand up against the DEMOCRATIC CORPORATE ESTABLISHMENT!!

      Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments had given millions to the Clinton Foundation.

      They are all corporate whores…Hillary being he leader of the pack. it has nothing to do with misogyny. stop with your fake out rage. You’re only “fake” outraged because its true.

      That’s what the revolution is all about – trying to repair it. Join us.

      • Dizcuzted

        Elect a plurality in the Legislature, and I’ll join your revolution. Until then, I’ll vote for a practical politician like Hillary.

        • Paul Santiago

          I’v been a Democrat my entire life & would NEVER vote for a 74 year old political HACK that’s been a Democrat for 2 years…. HRC is gonna CRUSH him Tuesday & send him back under the rock he came from.

  • mark pannebecker

    She is a whore, and so is the writer of this article.

  • thegodemperor

    He called ALL sellouts (not just Hillary) corporate whores. And what’s wrong with saying it? They are… or would you prefer shills? Man, woman, democrat, republican, it doesn’t matter. If you’re taking corporate/lobbyist money and doing their bidding, you are a corporate whore.

    • krisshanahan

      Hillary has not done any company’s bidding. That just is not true. This would be illegal, and Hillary has not broken the law.

      • Jesse

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      • thegodemperor

        Hillary certainly has (and if moderators approve my link, I give you an example of it), but it’s not just Hillary, it’s most of the Democrats and most of the Republicans. They sell out and you’re blind if you can’t see it

    • Phil Ostrand

      FU

      • thegodemperor

        awww, poo wittle baby is mad at reality 🙁

    • Wendy Smith

      Do you work for a company? Do you take their money? Do you do their bidding? Pot, meet kettle.

      • thegodemperor

        false analogy fallacy. Congrats. And it’s amazing how many are so quick to defend Hillary taking money from corporations and doing their bidding. Do you do the same for the GOP? Think it’s great that Haliburton gave Dick Cheney tens of millions and then Dick Cheney made sure Haliburton had a good contract with the Iraq and Afghan war?

        Don’t be a hypocrite. Realize money in politics is a problem and corrupts GOP and Dem politicians alike. Not all of them, but the vast majority. Especially ones that have made over hundred million being ONLY public servants (aka the Clintons)

    God, what is this, amateur propaganda spin class? He used the term “whores” in the plural. Nice try attempting to make this into some kind of sexist spiel. It’s terrible writers like this one who do our nation a true disservice by churning out their paid hack attacks. The fact of the matter is he’s right, and despite your pathetic attempts to demonize him, our Congress and political system (male and female, and some we’re not even sure if they’re human) have whored themselves out to various industries, serving their interests while ignoring those of the American people. That’s all documented fact, so evidently our writer here, Mira Hutchinson, must lead a rather privileged life where access to health care and being able to afford your medication is never an issue. This privilege allows Mira to churn out stories of phony outrage – shallow and hollow diatribes against the one candidate running in this election that gives a damn about the American people. Whomever is the editor of this pathetic blog site should find another profession. I’d send Mira back to Journalism 101.

    • MasterRothschild

      Hahaha, agreed! I’ve seen high school students write better pieces than Mira. She should be FIRED.

  • Zac Herbison

    After checking with her donors, Hillary denies all accusations of being a corporate Democratic whore(s). They have yet to tell her whether or not she’s offended.

  • Aimee Coleman

    It would be nice to see some outrage over politicians who push for arms deals, unjust wars and military interventions and policies that lead to the destruction of our environment, decisions that enrich their corporate donors. It’s not hard to make the argument that most elected officials in DC are guilty of corporate prostitution. But instead, let’s waste our time being upset over a poor choice of words and vote for the person who is sure to continue policies which lead to death and destruction all over the world.

    It is interesting that the proponent of “Medicare for all” uses that term. Sanders plan, based on the Canadian system, leaves for profit medicine in place, with pro-profit doctors, hospitals and clinics. A better system is the model in Belgium and many European counties of mutualities. Neither government nor for-profit corporations run health care. Workers and employer make equal payroll contributions to a non-profit, consumer driven health care mutuality chosen by the worker. People actually have a choice and a voice in their health care and for profit businesses have no role.
    Why won’t Sanders endorse this plan rather than his plan of a single payer who makes payments to for-profit medicine?

  • mjw1952

    He has been working for healthcare his whole life? What exactly has he done.? We all know what Hillary has done. If she had gotten more support it may have passed 20 years ago.

  • jessie

    I see Dr. Song was in the video behind his wife with her family welcoming back Laura. Vice President Gore personally thanked President Obama and his staff and Secretary Hillary Clinton for helping to return Laura. Dr. Song ought to be ashamed of himself.

    I see Dr. Song was in the video standing behind his wife and her family welcoming back Laura. Vice President Gore speaking for both himself and President Clinton thanked President Obama and his staff and Secretary Hillary Clinton for Laura’s return. Dr. Song should be ashamed of himself.

    Your Candidate is going to lose so face it. No amount of name calling is going to work. And it sure isn’t going to work with women. You’re a bunch a dumb asses. As a woman I get the message. You seem to think women can’t lead. We lead. We take care our families, we work, we struggle, we take of our aging parents. We suffer, we laugh, we cry.
