By deplorable I mean those celebrating hate, intolerance, bigotry and racism.


As long as they aren't straight, white, hard working males........ or any female who doesn't vote for Hillary, who will be condemned to eternal damnation.

Perhaps the third time will be the charm. Once again this is NOT the MUD PIT.

Political trollery and mudslinging are not allowed anywhere else on the boards aside from the infamous Mud Pit.

Remember, if your post is removed for political trollery it automatically counts as TWO warnings.

Consider this more than fair warning.

It does not matter if they know who he is or not, the left has been programmed to THINK in that way, and ACT in that way for a long time.

He just put it into words.

Deny it all you want, it only means you cannot see it.

And BTW, I am not far right, and I can't stand Glen Beck.

I'm about as middle of the road as you can get, a lifelong Independent.

But nice try lumping me together with others, I know that fits nicely into YOUR playbook, but reality is quite different.

The main problem with Hillary's comment is she pigeonholed a large percentage of the USA population, actually those same ad homenim attacks can be associated with almost everyone in the Democratic party, at one time or another.

Sure what she said maybe true, but the point here is Hillary attacked the little people, people that may or may not eventually have to support her.

It's hard to come together as a nation, when the leader's are doing their best to divide it.

Ask yourself this question reach deep past the emotional stir, that is currently being deployed by MSM:

Do we want a leader that looks down on people, or one that actually see's people for their worth?

And Trump has attacked the "PC crowd", who are also Americans. Do they not deserve his respect, just as much as people who hate blacks, Muslims and anyone in the LGBT community deserve her respect?

I'm not disagreeing, but the thread was about Hillary, not Trump.

The fact these two are acting like spoiled teenage rich brats is beyond comprehension.

I think the choices suck this time around, maybe this will wake people up, so we don't get these types of candidates ever again.

Trump attacked PC in general, because it's a limit on free speech. Like it or not, people have the freedom to say whatever they want here in America, and that includes things you may not like. It also includes things I may not like, that's the way it goes.

Life is never going to be all positive, and no negative. That's a pipe dream.

Hillary is indeed free to say whatever she likes.

But as the left has been telling the right for many, many years now, she is not free from the consequences.

I am a straight, white, hard-working male?

And I think that easily 30% of Trump supporters are drawn to his proudly bigoted, racist and intolerant rhetoric?

There is a strange assumption that all "hard-working" Straight, White men agree with Trump's rhetoric..
I think it is an echo-chamber effect.

Is there a "deplorable" here who can start a "Who is Going to Replace Hillary?" thread?

She only regrets saying "half"...because people with low comprehension can't put the phrase "grossly generalization" and "half" together and deduce that "half" is the generalization.

She probably wishes she would have said "some" or "a segment" instead of half.

But she isn't backtracking on calling out the deplorables.


As if you know what she meant... You want to talk about low comprehension - how about addressing "grossly generalization"? What a...creative...use of grammar.

Whether she wanted to say some, or a segment, or half, is irrelevant. The idea that she would refer to any Americans in such an insulting and insolent manner is more reflective of her than the people she claims to be talking about. But, this is hillary after all. She doesn't have to be bothered with things like civility or decency like the rest of us, what with her being royalty and all that...

Well, considering that Hillary has had to steal 90% of her votes, and considering that she has, by derivation, called 45% of the nation all of these things. She has literally offended, almost half of the entire nation.

Often, people will accuse the opposing party of being EXACTLY what they are.

It's nearly a clinical reaction to project one's own psychological ills upon adversaries.

This is why I listen to other people's rants, they tell you exactly what their weaknesses are.

As for being "deplorable", I'm Buddhist, Vegetarian....referred to as a "Freedom Fighter" by a Muslim group, treat everyone I interact with respectfully... really? I saved a 9 year old girl from drowning. I read the Koran. I put the most deserving under my boot and hold it down firmly. If there were a Renaissance Man for 21st century, I'd take a note. But, I'm "deplorable", with a mind to right and wrong, my namesake relative signing the Declaration of Independence.

Clinton is the worst of the worst. A cursory review of her contributors reveals a frightening group of soulless beasts. He own personal policies come through at every turn....stealing from the poorest of the poor, Haitians! It's almost surreal.

Sounds like she is labeling a group for extermination.

Seig heil heir Clinton, you liberal broad stroker of hate.


Going Godwin eh?

Another right-wing hypocrisy revealed.

You don't like Clinton's plain talk either?

Shocker.


No, but she went full Adolph. The only thing left for her to do is take skull measurements, issue wrist bands, close their shops then fire up the ovens.


Full Adolf you mean? Or are you talking about meat tenderizer?

She said that there are about 11 million racists/sexists/homophobes, etc. supporting Trump. I'd put the number higher than that.

You're exaggerating ridiculously. Don't like it when a Democrat speaks their mind, eh?

LOL.


When her mind promotes the path to genocide by singling out and labeling at the bare minimum 25+% of the US population as less than human, you bet people are going to take notice.

She is self destructing, her true hateful self is coming out from behind the carefully controlled persona out of fear and desperation.


Just sooooooooo Funny. I mean it really cracks me up.



OK, for Trump to do.

Not OK for Hillary to do.

GO HILLARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's about time - - - - Equality in Mudslinging!



Do not utter equality and Hillary in the same post after what she did to Bill's accusers. That's shameful Anne.

If any of you want to keep complaining about being in the "deplorables" ... just think about what you're saying ... you're not a hard-working American who wants a change ... you're a racist, sexist, homophobic, religious bigot.

And if you're NOT any of those things, then Hillary Clinton did NOT call you "deplorable."

I think this is Hillary's true self, speaking her mind, not scripted by a speech writer. I think in the coming future as the race tightens we'll see more of the same. As a trump supporter (more like a Hillary opposer) this dose t offend me at all, in face it shows more weakness from her stooping down to a level to call 1/2 of trumps supports "deplorables".
She backtracked recently and said she regretted saying 1/2. So all of trump supporters are deplorable? I don't think insulting MILLIONS of people is going to help her. As if the trump campaign dosent have enough ammunition with the email scandal and health concerns.

So, not pulling out any of the illogical statements there ... you were opposed to Clinton before she gave the speech, and you're opposed to her now.

How do you think then that this statement will "hurt" her? Was there a chance in your mind that Trump supporters were going to switch?
