The Real Deplorables

At Sunday night’s clown-show debate, Donald Trump once again invoked Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” sneer from about a month ago, in which she hectored millions of Americans who will be voting for the Republican ticket in November as a “basket” of unsalvageable losers.

“She calls our people deplorable—a large group—and irredeemable,” charged Trump. “I will be a president for all of our people.”

It’s correct that the rant continues to haunt Hillary, because although she technically later withdrew it—as another instance of her conveniently “misspeaking”—it revealed something fundamental about her worldview. Because most Clinton loyalists in the political-commentary racket also adhere to this worldview, the tenets underlying it merit further examination: their explanation for “Trumpism” will have long-term ramifications, regardless of which candidate wins.

    “Nor do the Amish foist it on anyone else.” It all comes down to this in a nutshell. Leftists think they know how you should live your life better than you because they think they’re smarter than you; only a deplorable person would disagree.

      I wonder if any Amish folks were included in any of the poll samples.

        When the nukes fall people will wonder why and I know it is because the political class wanted sanctions against Russia and they will get mushroom clouds in every city across the globe.

        These psychopaths and sociopaths care nothing for humanity and are Satanists rather than believers in any sort of higher power, and this is by both Democrats and Republicans and their supporters.

        Let them enjoy hell!!

    When is Hillary going to tell us what % of Muslims are deplorable and red neck slack-jawed morons.

    We already know that all of the 56 OIC’s use the same Quran that calls for murdering gays and jews , so since we know that close to 30% of the Muslim endorse armed-jihad or terrorism against the infidels.

    That is correct , Hillary. You have a Public position where you pretend to care ,long as the PEOPLE are bent over at the knees and feel GOOD about it. Like the kneegros.
    Then , you have a very Private position— where you extort money from governments — even if it makes everybody HATE the USA.
    I don’t care if Trump is insane—-he has more Scruples than YOU
