Are the Clintons Republicans?  Here’s what the Clintons did  NOT FOR… BUT TO CIVIL RIGHTS:

“Despite the human costs of welfare reform, Bill Clinton is STILL BRAGGING ABOUT KNOCKING PEOPLE OFF WELFARE……fulfilling his campaign promise to “END WELFARE AS WE HAVE COME TO KNOW IT.”

Hillary has neither repudiated nor disavowed the 1996 CLINTON WELFARE LEGISLATION, WHICH HAS BEEN A CATASTROPHE FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY. HILLARY CLINTON called it a success”

Fought Against Employment Discrimination: Sanders was a strong supporter of legislation to end workplace discrimination against LGBT Americans.

Called For End to War On Drugs, For-Profit Prisons and Migrant Detention Quotas:

Put Out Detailed Plan to End Economic Crisis in Minority Communities:  his events in Phoenix, Houston and Dallas, where he loudly condemned police brutality and racism

Raising Money For Korean Orphans: International solidarity

Calling For Full Gay Equality: 40 years ago, Sanders started his political life by running with a radical third party in Vermont called the Liberty Union Party. As a part of the platform, he called for abolishing all laws related to discrimination against homosexuality.

Standing Up For Victims Of U.S. Imperialism In Latin America: While mayor of Burlington, Vermont, Sanders formally protested the Reagan government’s policy of sending arms to Central America to repress left-wing movements. In 1985, he traveled to Nicaragua to condemn the war on people there. He writes about it in his book Outsider In The House:

Condemned And Opposed Welfare Reform and Dog Whistle Politics: While President Bill Clinton and most Democrats in Congress supported so-called welfare reform politics, Sanders not only voted against this policy change, but wrote eloquently against the dog whistle politics used to sell it, saying, “The crown jewel of the Republican agenda is their so-called welfare reform proposal. The bill, which combines an assault on the poor, women and children, minorities, and immigrants is the grand slam of scapegoating legislation, and appeals to the frustrations and ignorance of the American people along a wide spectrum of prejudices.”

Vocally Condemned and Opposed Death Penalty and Prisons His Entire Political Career:

Voted Against Cutting Off Prisoners From Federal Education Funds: In the 1990s, there was a successful effort to end the Pell Grant program for prisoners,

Took  IMF To Task For Oppressing Developing World Workers: In a 1998 committee hearing, Sanders took Clinton administration official Robert Rubin to task for not enforcing a provision to protect the rights of workers in Indonesia. “Tell the world now that no more IMF money goes to that country, goes to [dictator] Suharto!” he thundered to Rubin, who later went on to be the chief architect of policies that led us to the Great Recession.

Achieved High Ratings From Leading Civil Rights Organizations: A frequent critique of Sanders is that he is from a very white state. While this is true, he certainly has not ignored issues that matter to people of color. In 2002, he achieved a 93 percent rating from the ACLU and a 97% rating by the NAACP in 2006.

Opposed Both Iraq Wars on Moral Grounds

Endorsed Jesse Jackson, Spoke Up For Palestinians: In 1988, Jesse Jackson was the first competitive black candidate for the Democratic nomination for the presidency.
