Well, before a fundraiser in New York City yesterday of Hollywood glitterati, put on by a lesbian group, Hillary, I guess because she really must secretly long for retirement, made this statement:
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call ‘the basket of deplorables.’ Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, 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 this is truly rich coming from a woman whose husband got his start in politics from Arkansas Senator, and arch segregationist, J. William Fulbright. Perhaps I am mistaken, but I don’t think that attempting to demonize 20% of the American public is smart politics. Today she attempted to back pedal, but let us give her credit: for once in this campaign she told the truth. She has nothing but contempt for a large section of the American people who disagree with her views, and she will attribute the basest of motivations to them. I wonder what plans Hillary has for the “deplorables” if she gets to the White House?
