Crooked Hillary has had another “49 percent” moment come to light. The first was her recent speech at a fundraiser where she called Trump supporters “deplorables” and “irredeemable.” Now in audio recordings from a hacked email Clinton insults Millenials, Bernie Supporters, and really the entire Progressive wing of her own party. The comments are in an article from The Intercept where she is trying to paint herself as centrist to donors. That is despite her PUBLIC comments trying to place herself in line with these same Millennial and Progressive voters.
Hillary lumps Millennials together as nothing more that naive basement dwellers. She also describes them with a sense of entitlement where they whine about not getting the life they envision handed to them.
Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves.
Hillary also slams the commonly held beliefs of Bernie supporters and Progressives in things like free college and free healthcare. Personally I think those are stupid ideas, but Hillary is trying to embrace them with things like her promises of “debt free” college. Here she basically says the people who want these ideas and use the example of Scandinavia (a big thing with Bernie and Progressives) to justify it are so stupid they don’t even know what that means.
Everybody who’s ever been in an election that I’m aware of is quite bewildered because there is a strain of, on the one hand, the kind of populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach that we hear too much of from the Republican candidates. And on the other side, there’s just a deep desire to believe that we can have free college, free healthcare, that what we’ve done hasn’t gone far enough, and that we just need to, you know, go as far as, you know, Scandinavia, whatever that means, and half the people don’t know what that means, but it’s something that they deeply feel.
What does all this really show? First, Hillary is telling donors one thing and the public something else. She is either lying to one side, or just as likely lying to both. Hillary will say anything for votes and money, and only she knows what she really intends to do. Second, Hillary is a pretentious and elitist snob who looks down on virtuality everybody. She lumps us all together in baskets full of people who are “deplorable” or are losers who are “living in their parents’ basement” or where young black men are “superpredators”who need to be “brought to heel.” How can we elect a President who so obviously despises the people she claims she wants to lead?
