Basket of Deplorables!
"You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? [Laughter/applause]. 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."
Basket of deplorables. The only two problems I have with that statement is she didnt make it 75% and the fact coughing Hillary, who is clearly dying, apologized to this bunch of creeps.
I have seen a lot of elections in my life. I dont remember the Goldwater year, but every one since then has paled in comparison to this one. A white supremacist con artist reality show host with as a past so shady he shouldnt be elected to a county weed board in upper Nebraska with 15 voters, has taken over a party of, well lets face it, deplorables.
Trump supporters, so blinded in fear, racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and just plain craziness, have allowed this snake oil salesman to con them into a sense of desperation. A sense that their lives have been ruined by Mexicans, Muslims, blacks, Asians, gays, transgenders, white liberals. environmentalists, and the government. It's not your fault you haven't become a millionaire. It's their fault. Cuz we all know only white people work hard and the rest are slackers who rely on those hard working white folks tax money. Yeah! That's it.
Trump, the grifter who has taken a joke way too far, has taken these people into his grasp with this bullshit populism. From selling them a 49 cent goofy hat for $20, to insulting virtually every segment of the population not white and male, Trump has opened the vein of under a rock dwelling hatred like no other i have seen in my lifetime. These fucking people used to be ashamed of their Archie Bunker like stupidity and then it happened. Reagan. Making bigotry into "conservatism". Led by evil back room bigots with college degrees and the gift of gab, like Roger Ailes and Lee Atwater and heralded on free radio by Rush Limbaugh and his imitators reading the Heritage Foundation faxes every day, this hatred has been festering for years. Poppy Bush and Bob Dole and W and McCain and Romney took advantage of it but never ever legitimized it with words. Trump, a vulgar creep with no principles or values other than enriching himself and whacking his own ego, has tapped into it 100%.
Look, Trump is going to get crushed. If the Democrats had moved on and nominated a guy like O'Malley or Kaine or Newsom or even Bernie, this election would be another 1964, or 1984 for you Republicans. But Hillary, in all her power hungry narcissism, won fair and square, proving voters in both parties are somewhat unable to see beyond right fucking now.
The choice is clear. Hillary aint my fave. She's a Wall Street hack and a war monger not to mention probably terminally ill because she coughed. But she aint a flim flam man feeding his own ego by appealing to the bottom feeders of American society.
Fuck Donald Trump. And fuck his basket of deplorables who support him.
Stop apologizing to the rabble of losers, Hill. You actually LOSE votes apologizing. Go for the jugular with these boneheads. It's the only way to duplicate your hero in 1964. Barry Goldwater.
