More on the deplorables

SoVaNow.com / September 29, 2016


Dear Viewpoint:

Sometime back I was one of the voters who decided that Trump was the lesser of the two evils in this year’s presidential race. Now I discover that in Hillary Clinton’s little world, which apparently extends no further than Westchester County, I am one of the irredeemable deplorables, “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islam phobic…you name it.”

At first I thought this unbelievably supercilious description was a gaff she would later disavow; just some red meat rhetoric she served up with the canapés to a crowd of limousine liberals in Manhattan while she snoozed with Barbara Streisand. Turns out she was scripted and meant every word. This representative of organized labor and the workingman has doubled down, and her trolls on the interest are pinning vicious screeds about Trump supporters being “goobers,” “uneducated” and “trailer trash.”

This makes me furious. I’ve crawled back into my Georgian revival trailer and have decided I will do everything I can to see to it this greedy, mendacious and vindictive witch and her roué husband never set foot in the White House again, and I urge the rest of the “deplorables” to do the same.
