In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Hillary Used “Deplorables” Line Because Her Elitist Friends Loved It

A new book out by New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling – doesn’t sound biased, does it? – reports that Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” comment about half of Donald Trump’s voters was road tested first with her elitist friends.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Campaign Manager Robby Mook split the opposition into three groups: 1) “Republicans who hated her, 2) Voters “who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them,” and 3) “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic.”

Clinton and company packaged that last group up and put them in a basket, a basket of deplorables.

“The Deplorables always got a laugh, over living-room chats in the Hamptons, at dinner parties under the stars on Martha’s Vineyard, over passed hors-d’oeuvres in Beverly Hills, and during sunset cocktails in Silicon Valley,” Chozick writes.

They liked it, so of course it was fine. I mean, this is true Marie Antoinette stuff, isn’t it?

This is no accident or misfortune for Hillary. It is a reflection of attitudes she harbored which, ironically enough, were not shared by the billionaire candidate she faced who had more connection to average voters and a lot less in common with the Hamptons crowd than she did.

  1. What Hillary and her snobby elitist hangers-on never imagined was that Trump supporters would grab onto the Deplorable description and make it a rallying cry.
    As time goes on in DC and we get to see just who these people are – they are the Deplorable set, not us.

  2. Hillary, her rump swabs, the George Soros goons, the fanatic corporate media crowd, the Obama trained seals et al could never figure out or understand is this: after years of watching them pull their political tricks to dismantle the political architecture of our beloved Republic and getting very wealthy and powerful in the process, we wanted them out of the game. We came to understand that they were corrupt, deceptive, conniving, lying to us all the time. Right now the fight between “them” and “us” is a pitched battle. We will win, in the end, and they will lose, as they already are in the process of doing, and are, as we speak, already beginning to devour their own fellow travelers.

  3. We are proudly deplorable, now with AGEISM added (thank Hogg Hitler) for more good taste.

    Trump 2020 vision for the future 2020. UNITE THE RIGHT. Make America Great Again, Safe Again, Wholesome Again. God Bless US Bitter Clingers

  5. think it shows Trump is serious about a wall–showing the prototypes here–and Obama was, as usual, not in the least serious about a “wall”, preferring a stupid “red line”, which he would not in the least respect, as in Syria.
