Will Hillary’s bigoted “Basket of Deplorables” damage her campaign as Romney’s ’47 percent’ comment did in the 2012 election?
WASHINGTON, September 13, 2016 – Hillary Clinton’s lack of transparency regarding her health, her near collapse during a 9/11 ceremony, and subsequent revelation that she has pneumonia have triggered a public backlash that not even Clinton cannot hide from.
If not for her health issues, news about Hillary Clinton would have focused on her cutting ‘Basket of Deplorables’ comment about 50% of Donald Trump’s supporters.
At a Friday evening New York fundraiser, Clinton did what Mitt Romney had done in 2012. Except Clinton’s remarks were apparently prepared and she was a public fundraiser, whereas Romney was at a private event and made an off-the-cuff statement.
If that were not enough, she placed the other half of his supporters in a basket that had to be pitied for their ignorance. She suggested they were simply not aware of their hopeless plight in turning to a Trump candidacy. She harangued Trump supporters and purposely railed against good hardworking Americans in remarks that had to have been vetted by her staff and by her.
Pause and think about this for a moment. Was she simply verbalizing publicly what liberals speak of in the privacy of their mainstream media offices and suites? Was she shouting out what her campaign pundits all across America have been laying the political election divisionary groundwork for?
She, is the true incarnation of a divider-in-chief. Hilary has taken up the mantel of Barack Obama and sought to destroy American voters who happen to believe in conservative, Christian, traditional values, and protecting the nation’s borders and their families by levying one politically charged cutting phrase.
The 1,000 plus event attendees who were at her campaign fundraiser where she targeted patriotic Americans laughed loudly and applauded her malicious comments. These are the people who support deplorable Hillary Clinton. The negative basket that she spoke of is a clear reflection of her personal and political disdain for Americans that have the right to disagree with her campaign and with her character. For Hillary Clinton, the America of the land of the free and the home of the brave is only free or brave if its inhabitants follow her and believe in her warped since of bigoted charged words that she paints Trump supporters with.
Why does the former Secretary of State despise those that disagree with her? The answer is as clear as her lies about Benghazi, her emails or her private server. The rules for Americans who believe in a nation of laws do not apply to her. A lie is not a lie if it is uttered by a Clinton. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, survived and even thrived thanks to a series of well-crafted lies.
If serial-lying is accepted by her mainstream supporters and even twisted around to become truth by the alphabet soup media ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, then why should Americans believe any different, she has successfully reasoned. After all, The Clinton’s have made a career of demonizing Republicans by calling them provocateurs of a ‘vast right wing conspiracy, during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
So the man who held the highest office in the land and could not keep his pants buckled when it came to womanizing was a victim of a republican conspiracy. Hillary Clinton created a mistruth to protect her husbands’ lies and far too many Americans eventually gave the president and his lies a pass.
Now, Hillary Clinton is hoping yet again that she can lie her way to the Oval Office and offer a meaningless tepid apology if her lies get in the way of winning in November.
So if anyone believes that her half-hearted “Oops, I got caught speaking the truth” apology she uttered the following day should be taken seriously, don’t. Clinton meant what she said when she attacked millions of voters across the nation.
In addition, she doubled down in her apology saying, “Last night I was ‘grossly generalistic’ and that’s never a good idea. I regret saying ‘half’ — that was wrong,” reported the Chicago Tribune. She then explained that she still felt the word “deplorable” was reasonable in referring to Trump and his campaign.
In the end the same rules and political values should apply to Clinton as was applied to Obama in 2008 as well as to Mitt Romney in 2012. They were taken at their word. In both cases, all the verbal tapping dancing around it after the public found out did not matter.
When Obama said during the 2008 presidential campaign, small-town voters “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations,” he meant every single solitary word.
In 2012, when Romney said 47 percent of the voters would vote for President Obama “no matter what” because they depended on government benefits and his job was “not to worry about those people,” the GOP candidate meant it.
So take Clinton at her word when she describes millions of moms, dads, police officers, military personnel, farmers, factory workers, grandparents, Christians, conservatives and all patriots, “racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, or Islamophobic,” she means it!
