Rise Of “The Deplorables”

Update: Many more Proud Deplorables here End Update

Hillary just can’t help herself. Her political instincts (and those of her campaign) are just plain stupid. Everything backfires on her, probably because she is living in a fantasy bubble called the Political Industrial Complex (PIC).

The Political Industrial Complex encompasses all those elites whose livelihoods are predicated on central-control of resources and who determine who is allowed to succeed in society. It is a bipartisan exclusive club. It includes the Politicians and their career staffers. It includes crony donors and lobbyists who reap government windfalls and special treatment that average citizens cannot obtain. It includes the PIC industrial base of pollsters, consultants, etc. And it includes the pliant news media, whose success rest on access to those in power, and in return for access making sure no bad news will disrupt said power.

This strange and bizarre parallel universe is where all the political elites hang out – isolated from Main Street America (and the commoner world as well). The denizens of the PIC are very wealthy, very cozy with each other and one of they live in the most dense echo chamber on the planet.

Hillary is just the epitome of Political Correctness dripping from the center of the PIC.

But now Hillary has created a massive movement in the country, outside the PIC. She has created “The Deplorables!“.

It is becoming a badge of honor to be feared and attacked by the PIC. It is becoming fun to watch members of the PIC just collapse into lick-spittle rage, as the voters reject their self-anointed brilliance. For example:

Hillary, you recently labeled me — and millions of Americans like me — “deplorable.”

I am not deplorable. What I am is your worst nightmare: a woman, a mother and a voter who sees right through you.

In your remarks to an LGBT group, with liberal millionaire mouthpiece Barbra Streisand hosting your appearance, you waved your invisible scepter and banished millions of people from respectable society, just because you felt like it.

“Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it,” you said last Friday. “There are people like that, and [Trump] has lifted them up.”

Well, I’m concerned about national security, supportive of law enforcement, and a believer in traditional marriage. How does that make me “deplorable?”

There is even a great riff on how to determine if you too are “A Deplorable!” (similar to Foxworthy’s “you might be a redneck, if…”)

You may be a deplorable if you just got your car inspected.

If you’re deployable, you’re definitely deplorable.

If you wake before noon, if you call Islamic terrorists Islamic terrorists, if you don’t have an Obamaphone and you don’t believe that global warming is “settled science” — can you say deplorable?

Or if while watching the second Monday night NFL game you were less irritated by the streaker than you were by all the fawning coverage of Colin Kaepernick on the pre-game show.

You may be a deplorable if you resent training your H1-B replacement.

Or the fact that the Earned Income Tax Credit is NOT earned.

Nothing says deplorable like the National Rifle Association.

Hillary wanted to brand Trump Voters as subhuman (well, at least below the standards of the PIC). But by giving them a name, she gave them a rallying point, a joint cause.

Honestly, how could she have helped Trump even more? Given her political skills I am sure we will find out soon enough.
