Self-projection rears it’s ugly progressive ‘deplorable’ head. Hillary Clinton is best at it.
Here are the Trump Deplorables, poking Hillary in the eye:
Last night, Hillary Clinton identified 50 million Americans as deplorable.
She wants to take their guns away.
The Trump Deplorables far outnumber the Shillarys at campaign events. I’m with the deplorables!
ED MORRISSEY ON HILLARY’S “BASKET OF DEPLORABLES” GAFFE: Nothing says woman of the people like a political candidate who got filthy rich while serving in the Senate and State Department insulting millions of voters while surrounded by celebrities, right? “This sneering, condescending, and insulting stereotyping of millions of voters perfectly encapsulates the Clintonian quarter-century, especially with their above-the-law antics since leaving the White House. And that’s why most candidates stick to insulting each other, and not voters.”
PEOPLE ARE FOCUSING ON THE “BASKET OF DEPLORABLES” LINE — which is an awful line because it’s simultaneously memorable without being evocative — but the worst part of Hillary’s speech was where she called opponents “irredeemable” and “not America.” That’s pretty much eliminationist rhetoric, right there.
SO EVERYTHING’S GOING SWIMMINGLY FOR HILLARY. Some headlines just from this morning’s InstaPundit:
Bill Clinton Mocks The “Coal People” of West Virginia, Kentucky. (As Mark Danziger commented on Facebook: “Way to go, Bill!! You weren’t so tone-deaf before you were rich.”)
DISPATCHES FROM THE 47 PERCENT: Hillary: A Quarter Of America Is ‘Irredeemable,’ ‘Not America.’
“Nothing says woman of the people like a political candidate who got filthy rich while serving in the Senate and State Department insulting millions of voters while surrounded by celebrities, right?,” Ed Morrissey asks in a post titled “Will ‘Basket of Deplorables’ become the new ‘47 Percent’?”
As Hillary herself tweeted last week, “The last thing we need is a president who brings more name-calling and temper tantrums to Washington.”
To paraphrase sage philosopher George Constanza, a Hillary divided against herself cannot stand!
