Slick Willie: Wife of Future President Golfs @ Racist, Anti-Semitic Country Club

By Debbie Schlussel
On Saturday, future First Lady Bill Clinton (wife of future President Hillary Rodham Cankles) golfed at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan–a swanky Detroit suburb.
One problem: Oakland Hills has a history of anti-Semitism and racism.
Previously, the club refused to admit Jewish and Black members to the club. And maybe that’s why Clinton brought prominent Black Democrat Joel Ferguson to golf with him–to insulate him from the Country Club’s very well known reputation.

Bill Clinton Golfs at Bigoted Oakland Hills Country Club

Now, Oakland Hills has a few token Black members (and perhaps a few token Jews), but discrimination there endures. While Tiger Woods played the course in a recent Ryder Cup, the fact remains that few like him will ever be admitted as members. I repeatedly called Oakland Hills, today, for figures on the exact number of Jewish, Blacks, and Hispanic members. But no-one at the Country Club would comment, and Club COO Rick Bayliss did not respond to voice-mail queries. So we know he’s not only Bayliss, he’s Gutliss. (The club does allow Jews and Blacks to be caddies, though. All masters need appropriate servants.)
Slick Willie’s 18 hole play on the South Course at Oakland Hills is interesting, given that John Snow was forced to resign from Augusta National Country Club–because of its refusal to allow female members–before he could be confirmed as Bush’s Treasury Secretary.
Should we expect any less from the former President and current wife of a future one, Bill Clinton? Time for Slick Willie to stop swinging his clubs on the terrain of racism and anti-Semitism.

Organic Chaos wrote this about Oakland Hills Country Club, Bill Clinton’s hangout:

ENDURING ANTI-SEMITISM- [It was] revealed to me that the Oakland Hills Country Club in Michigan still discriminated against Jews trying to join their illustrious ranks. It’s not like the old days when Jews were literally told they couldn’t join, however. The new, improved method for keeping “them” out is through a mythical “waiting list” that never seems to shrink. As this person put it, “A black person is more liable to be accepted than a Jewish person.” And there are indeed black members of note. It was speculated that there’s a fear of Jewish “pushiness” and tendency to take over.

racism from democrats gets a clean pass as it always has– including from klansmen in their own ranks

Debbie, these clubs don’t deserve any Jewish members. And why certain Jews stoop to join as Uncle Toms I don’t get. But to be fair, every club I see that lets in a Jew, 5 years later its fairly Jewish, so they probably have a point.

It looks like conservatives can play the victim and race cards whenever it suits them.

Ah I hate to bring this up to everyone, but how can this golf country club tell who is Jewish and who is not? I say we try to get a two for one thing going and get some Ethiopian Jews to apply for membership. Hahaha, that’ll drive them nuts. I know it’s a short drive anyway right? Also no one could tell I’m Jewish because of my last name. I lived in Israel and vacationed in Egypt and no one could tell there either. Maybe I should apply for membership in this country club huh? I’d stir up a hornets nest for sure!

I’m still waiting for blacks and everyone else around the world to be ‘inclusive’ of white people, I don’t see that happening. I see blacks, asians, hispanics, etc, all being pretty racist and clannish themselves. I don’t waste a lot of time crusading on behalf of non-white people who’ve never done anything for my people.

As far as Clinton golfing at Oakland Hills, he’s merely trying to make a statement because he is, after all, been dubbed “America’s First Black President”.

Hillary is not going to be President. Rudy Giuliani will.

Once again, we learn why you can’t force people to be nice. No one believes it works anyway. If only country clubs could learn the simple means that street gangs and terrorists use to completely avoid these charges of intolerance, huh?
But as for Clinton, how easily we forget he’s not a Republican. Democrats, especially ones that can’t get into clubs like Oakland Hills, apparently love Clinton even more when he golfs there. Can you really blame him?

You people want REAL racism? Here’s the “poetry” of Nikki Giovanni, the award-winning professor who was chosen by all the stupid whites to eulogize the Virginia Tech shooting victims: http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=12616&

Maybe that’s because it only takes a Jew or two for the antisemites to run away like cockroaches when the lights are turned on. They go elsewhere because they don’t want to have to keep looking over their shoulders to see if the Jew or two overhears them making antisemitic remarks. Good riddance to bad rubbish, let ‘em leave and then don’t blame the Jews for filling up the void.
