Hillary “The Hildebeast” Clinton stated this about Trump supporters:
You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.
Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.
For a Presidential candidate to state this about her fellow citizens (who vote, by the way) is in itself deplorable. It shows that this person does not think much about the people that she is to serve while President or in any political office.
And yet, little to no outrage from the above is present in the Media. You and I both know that if The Hildebeast had a “R” after her name denoting party affiliation, the pundits would be screaming for her blood and her head. Instead, praise for her social warrior bravery.
From American Thinker’s Christopher Chantrill:
Let us be generous to Clinton. When she talked about a basket of deplorables she was just serving up to her LGBT audience what it wanted to hear. That’s what politicians do for a living.
And the whole racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia name-shaming crock is necessary, both to keep the Democratic Coalition of the Fringes properly grateful to their ruling class masters, and to keep the rubes, the deplorables, in fear of their jobs for saying the wrong thing at work, or in church. It is the glue that keeps the Democrats together.
Which reminds me of the following excerpt from a post in November 2005:
In case any of you didn’t know, a typical politician’s primary job is not to serve the people who elected him. His primary job is to get himself (or herself) elected or re-elected. Second is to reward all those contributors that gave $$ to help him get elected. Third is to get as many perks & benefits as he can while he is in office. Last on the list is the common person like you & I.
Again, from American Thinker’s Christopher Chantrill:
But really. Let’s have a reality check about the -isms and the -phobias.
Racism is a problem? You mean in the country that went to war to free the slaves, that passed the civil rights acts? That elected a black president? Sexism? You mean the country that gave women the vote, that has encouraged women, indeed, has mandated that women get preference at the university and the workplace? Homophobia? You mean the country that doesn’t riot in indignation when elite gays get to harass the little people for not wanting to bake a gay wedding cake? Islamophobia? You mean the country in which a supermarket checker gets to wear the hijab, a defiant statement of separation and act of segregation in my book, and gets to live to tell the tale?
You know what I think? I think that the ordinary white middle class has shown the most amazing patience and sturdiness as they have marked time for the last 50 years while liberals deployed government force to help blacks, women, gays, Hispanics, Muslims at their expense.
You want to talk about deplorable, then how about the lower half of white America that has been paying for the liberal agenda for the last half century not in taxes, but in diminished lives, so that liberals could pat themselves on the back for their compassion and their passionate activism.
And another thing. Sure it’s deplorable what liberals have done to the white working class and the unorganized white middle class that just follows the rules, goes to work, and obeys the law.
If we really want to talk about who is deplorable in this situation, let’s talk about the Hildebeast’s many scandals that she and her husband have been a part of for all of their 30-plus years in public office. Let’s talk about the Hildebeast’s use of the Clinton Foundation for a “pay to play” scheme for influence in State Department recommendations for foreign governments is just one way that this person has sold our country (and us) to the highest bidder. Let’s talk about revelations from this past week show that large “contributions” to the DNC resulted in perks to the donors such as ambassadorships, appointments, access to the President, and other perks (link here for just one article). Let’s talk about the Progressive Liberal agenda (another name for Socialism) to reduce the greatness of America into the shithole of a third-world country.
From American Thinker’s Shelby Williams:
Our founding documents give us the reasons in plain English: to secure the unalienable rights of “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” (the Declaration of Independence) and “to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity” (the preamble to the Constitution of the United States).
In other words, our government exists to secure the liberty of its citizens. There is a reason why the word “Liberty” appears in both the Declaration and the Constitution: because liberty is the paramount moral directive by which one human being can interact with another. To rob another human being unwillingly of his time, effort, intellection, the fruits of his labor, or his very life is to violate his self-sovereignty and to do him evil. Governments were known by our founders to be the very worst violators of this principle, and so the founders set up our government to be the very basis for which self-sovereignty was to be preserved, which established our republic as unique in the whole of human history.
At least it used to be. We have lost our way.
The government we know today exists only for itself. It feeds off the citizenry to support its own largesse. It is used as a mechanism by its adherents to further pet projects and ply us with social experiments. It steadily erodes, rather than secures, liberty. The Constitution was established to confine government, but through two centuries of Supreme Court malignance, we have a government that, collectively, does not recognize self-sovereignty as a natural right.
That, my friends, is what is truly deplorable, and the who are the people trying their damnest to make it happen.
To reverse this course will take the courage of the Electorate to elect people that will reverse this course. Those people are few and far between. The start is to elect good people, people who hold dear the ideals presented in the Constitution, and believe that Liberty is in the actions of the People, not by governmental mandate.
The only Presidential candidate this year that has a chance of righting the ship is Donald Trump, a political outsider. Perhaps this is who we need – someone not of the political elite. We know that the Hildebeast isn’t that person.
But we also must look at our Senators and Representatives, not only at the Federal level, but State and Local. While I do not advocate a straight party ticket, I cannot abide supporting the Democrat party, and the only way to effectively oppose the Democrat Party is to vote Republican.
For Better or Worse, that is what We The People must do.
