Defending Hillary’s “Basket of Deplorables” will backfire


In the episode “Dead Man’s Party” from Season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cordelia decides to come to Buffy’s defense during an argument.

Of course, her idea of defending Buffy isn’t particularly helpful.

Time out, Xand. I mean, put yourself in Buffy’s shoes for a
minute. I’m Buffy – freak of nature – right? Naturally, I pick
a freak for a boyfriend… Then he’s Mister Killing Spree,
which is pretty much my fault, and —

Cordy. Get out of my shoes.

Hillary Clinton stupidly let slip her opinion of Americans who support Donald Trump, and the Enslaved Press – like Cordelia – have decided to come to her defense.

And not in a particularly helpful way.

At the Washington Post, columnist Dana Milbank wrote an editorial titled Yes, half of Trump’s supporters are racist.

Actually, Milbank goes so far as to say Clinton “low-balled” the number.

Likewise, New York Times columnist Charles Blow also felt the need to defend Hillary by saying, though “impolitic,” what Hillary said was true.

They aren’t the only ones. Several in the Enslaved Press have hopped on board the “Defend the Deplorables Comment” bandwagon.

Ta-Nehisi Coates at the Atlantic also agreed that Hillary’s comment, though politically incorrect, was factually true.

[And by “factually true,” I should say, “as far as Ta-Nehisi Coates is concerned.”]

As does Jamelle Bouie at Slate.

If Hillary had any sense, she would tell these people to stop defending her.

They’re not helping Hillary; they’re hurting her.

Defending Hillary by attacking the American people will totally backfire on these idiots.

Clearly they fail to take into account that the very people they are vilifying are the ones who will go to the polls on November 8th.

Now, elitist pukes like Dana Millbank or Jamelle Bouie don’t really believe we are a bunch of racists. Not in the strictest definition of the word.

Rather, they believe that the best way to maintain our open borders and destroy our American culture is to accuse anyone who opposes the Left’s radical agenda of being racist.

In that sense, they’re probably right. More than half the country would fall into their category of “racist.”

When your definition of “racist” or “bigot” is Someone who doesn’t agree with us, it’s impossible not to prove yourself right.

Here’s the problem.

The “racist” smear has been so overused, it no longer has the desired effect.

It rolls off us like rain on a slicker.

When you spend eight years shouting “Racist!” at everyone with whom you disagree, the word loses its power and its meaning.

When you go so far as to accuse white people who do Yoga of racism, you’ve overused the word.

We no longer tremble in fear of being thought of as racist because we see the accusation for what it is – a ploy to silence anyone who disagrees with these snotty, self-important Leftists.

The other problem these idiots have in repeatedly defending Hillary’s indefensible remarks is it only keeps fresh in our minds just what Hillary said.

Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” remark is one of those times when it would have been better if the Enslaved Press simply pretended it never happened.

If this vicious insult simply faded away into nothing, by November 8 it would have been a non-issue.

But to decide to join the pig-pile by not only defending Hillary, but declaring what she said as true, these fools are only going to make us angrier.

Are these morons really so stupid as to think repeatedly defending Hillary’s heartless attack will help her on election day?

Americans generally do not respond well to being attacked, insulted, demeaned and ridiculed – especially from smug bastards who think of themselves as our betters.

This is a coordinated strategy on the part of the Enslaved Press.

Attacking Trump himself wasn’t working.

So these wizards of smart — for reasons I simply cannot comprehend — believe Hillary’s chances will improve if they begin slandering and smearing the tens of millions of Americans who plan to vote for Donald Trump.

And like pretty much everything else that has happened in this election cycle, the Enslaved Press is making a grievous miscalculation.

Trump supporters aren’t easily cowed.

Much like the candidate they support, they will not simply crumble under the barrage of attacks from the Democrats or the Enslaved Press. Instead, they – or better put we — fight back.

For over a year these imbeciles have tried to destroy Trump’s support and it isn’t working.

They really do believe that using the worn-out, tired label of “racist” will cause us to trip all over ourselves to prove that we are not.

But it doesn’t work anymore.

This word “racist” — that once was a sharp instrument — is about as piercing as a limp noodle.

And the more indiscriminately the arrogant Enslaved Press wield it, the more damaging it will be – not for Trump, but for their preferred candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    10/14/2015 Democrat debate: Which enemy are you most proud of?
    Hillary Clinton: Well, in addition to the NRA, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the Iranians. Probably the Republicans.

    She proudly hates Iranians as much as she hates Republicans.

    Dianny, do you make a Hillary proudly hates Republicans and Deplorables t-shirt?

    The woman could shoot a deplorable Republican in broad daylight and still lose the election.

    FYI the link to your Tees has a “insecure connection” warning. I says personal information is not secure.

    You know, Hillary proudly hates us and her slogan is “together”, so she needs to add an addendum.

      Regarding Dianny Tees, that is correct. But that’s because payment processing isn’t done on site. Payment and credit card processing is handled by PayPal, so your personal information is not being shared on the site itself.

    Firefox will not let me see anything at the Tees page. I have nothing blocking anything turned on here. Maybe it will only accept internet explorer?

    The warning is still up
    “Your connection is not secure

      I can get to DT from Safari, Firefox, Opera and Explorer. So I have no idea why you are having problems.
