A Tisket, A Tasket, Deplorables In A Basket

TRUMP supporters scream "KILL HER!" and "F**K Muslims!"
Hillary says they're deplorable. Trump supporters scream "HATE SPEECH!"

Hillary Clinton said that half of Trump's supporters are "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it.”

Of course everyone knows Hillary' s correct. But the Deplorables had their fee-fees hurt.  Too bad. She should have said it sooner. 

The definition of deplorable:    "deserving strong condemnation."

Half of the Trumpistas didn't like hearing the truth about what they are: Racists, sexists, white supremacists, conspiracists, homophobes, Islamophobes and xenophobes. I'd call them plain, ordinary lunatics, but that's just me. People who buy into their sort of slander, paranoia, and mendacity and who support a maniac have IMO all sorts of desperate psychological problems.

Below are some actual comments from The Deplorables of far right blogs where Trump is supported and admired. In any rational society, people who advocate torture and rape, people who call a sitting African-American president and his wife "ghetto punks," and people who refer to the 1.3 billion Muslims as "vermin" and call for a Muslim final solution, those sort of people, by any rational measure are most assuredly deplorable and deserving of condemnation and shunning. What horrible trauma happened to those people in their past lives that causes them to hate with such vengeance? Where is their shared humanity that would allow them to see people they disagree with or fear as fellow human beings with hopes and dreams just like they have?  Where is their common decency?:

"Of course obama is unlikeable. he and michele are literally anti-American ghetto punks at the minimum and have no intelligence. To those below their status they are bulies [sic], to those above – like Putin, then [sic] are buffoons. The only people who would like them are other ghetto punks and maybe not even then because they have so much money"

"obama obviously supported helping the most evil murderous savages on the face of the Earth. On Purpose. obama is a radical moslem." 

 "i want every single moslem on the Earth to be gone along with every copy of the koran ? You can’t sort “good” cancer cells from “bad” cancer cells. So some moslem says he/she doesn’t want to kill me? Who cares. Begone. They are associated with a disease. There is no way for them to clear themselves." 

On 9/11:

"I believe ALL Americans from both political parties felt shock, anger, and empathy for what happened 15 years ago……….. EXCEPT FOR OBAMA! His Muslim compatriots accomplished what he has so obviously planned from the beginning…….."

"At least we can kill Muslims if they threaten us. But what do you do with the traitorous bitch?"

- "At least half the planet needs to be carved off and tossed in the trash. As you pointed out elsewhere, there isn't a single country on the entire continent of Afria[sic] that is worth a SHIT."

This right wing Trump supporter hopes that...


I've been very critical of Trump and have even called him names, the worst of which, I believe, is "horse's ass." The other names are merely adjective phrases that colorfully describe what I and many other anti-Trumpers think of him and his supporters.  But I've never wished torture and death upon him as the  right wing Hillary Haters wish upon her.  They need to be reminded that holding that sort of pathological hatred is like drinking poison and hoping it will kill the person they detest.  

The commenters quoted above wish Hillary to be hideously tortured, gang raped and burnt alive. Wow! And what would any good old-fashioned wet-dream of torturing a woman be without the threat of RAPE? It's every emasculated punk's aspiration. The other quoted Trump Deplorables call President Obama and his wife "ghetto punks" who have "no intelligence," and another accuses President Obama of planning and carrying out the 9/11 attacks. Would you even want to spend five minutes in the company of people who have that much venom in their hearts and are that crazy? Whew! 

Maybe the above examples of far right thinking aren't so much deplorable as they are hellishly frightening because they represent the possibility that even the sweet little grandmother knitting booties for her grandchildren could hold these murderous, beastly thoughts as well. We all observed how roughly half the population in America lost its mind when our first African-American president was elected. Be prepared for a tsunami of malevolent defamation and death threats against Mrs. Clinton when she becomes the first female POTUS.  The above quoted comments are just a prelude to what's coming next, and they are all we need to read to understand that Hillary should never have to apologize for telling the truth.

For further proof, here they are, in all their deplorable racism, sexism, and white supremacy -- Trump's Basket Cases:

Just putting this out there because I know the TeaPublicans have been trying to make Hillary's health an issue:

Conservative media had been noticing that Clinton appeared under the weather recently, most notably due to mild coughing. Whether it’s a simple scratchy throat, or allergies, or a mild cold, or even pneumonia still isn’t very important, and it’s not an issue on which voters should be judging candidates. Health only becomes an issue if there’s a serious chronic condition that might endanger the president’s life or impact their ability to do their job.

So far there has been no evidence that Clinton has such a condition. That hasn’t stopped conservative media organizations from speculating that Clinton might be too ill to be president, however. But then, these are the same people who speculate the Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and the mainstream press shouldn’t be feeding the conspiracy trolls.

On Subject:

Paul Begala: “It is simply true that Donald Trump has electrified the racist fringe in America, and that is really critical for her to raise.”

That discussion, Begala said, helps energize the two groups that Clinton needs to win the election: college-educated white voters, who Democrats have never won; and the millennials that overwhelmingly rejected Clinton for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.

“I don’t think it’s a gaffe,” Begala added, “I think it’s a really important strategy. This fires up her voters."

The video in this post shows that Hillary was speaking the truth: In times when a championship liar, serial adulterer, and business fraud passes himself off as a true conservative, it is a revolutionary act to tell the truth.

Shaw Kenawe said...

So the right wing blogs are on fire over Hillary's truth-telling, taking to their fainting couches over the word "deplorable." Maybe they should look it up, they keep writing about that word, and I don't think they know what it means.

Trump's name-calling of candidates from his OWN party: Lyin’ Ted Cruz, Little Marco Rubio and Low-Energy Jeb Bush: all victims of Trump’s expert bullying tactics that are more reminiscent of schoolyards and cafeteria halls than upstanding presidential campaigns. Also, Trump's nicknames for Liberal politicians -- Crazy Bernie Sanders, Goofy Elizabeth Warren and "Pocahontas," and Crooked Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump Smears Grieving Mother Of DNC’s Muslim Hero, thereby insulting and smearing Muslim families who lost loved ones who fought and died for America

Donald Trump’s smear campaign against a federal judge, thereby insulting and smearing Mexican-Americans and calling into question their loyalty to America.

Donald Trump smears POWs by telling the world he likes military people who "don't get caught, okay?"

The pearl-clutchers on the right are apoplectic over Hillary telling the truth about a portion of Trump supporters. The truth is they are homophobes, white supremacists, racists, and everything else Hillary said they are, including deplorable.

Meanwhile, the above list is a short list of the people Trump has insulted starting in June of 2015 when he insulted all Mexicans as murderers and rapists.

What did we hear from the pearl-clutchers about all of Trump's egregious insults on half of America?


But...but..Hillary said DEPLORABLE!

Dear Trump supporters: Cry me a blank, blank river.

Rational Nation USA said...

As for the comments you posted Shaw... it is evident beyond a doubt that some conservatives and libertarians are proud to be ignorant. Trump likes ignorance and is working very hard to foster a lot more of it. It is tbhe only hope he has of being elected.

The Truth About This Alleged 'Basket of Deplorables'

(I did not read his article before I posted mine.)

Dave Miller said...

Two thoughts... Hillary chose to not be politically correct, or PC. And then the folks who hate PC got pissed off. Why?

Two, her illness will weigh large on the mi ss if centrist voters. No one wants a Pres who either is, or seems sick. This will feed that narrative, and once again, the campaign fumbled the ball. So HRC once again looked like she was hiding something.

Why does this keep happening?

Clearwater, Florida said...

One of Trump's supporter believes Obama planned and carried out 9/11? Why isn't that person in a mental hospital becuz that's insane!

Dave: "Two, her illness will weigh large on the mi ss if centrist voters. No one wants a Pres who either is, or seems sick. This will feed that narrative, and once again, the campaign fumbled the ball. So HRC once again looked like she was hiding something.

Why does this keep happening?"

That's one way to look at it. Another is that she and her staff chose to keep her in the campaign because of the rumors flying around about her health. I choose to admire a 68 year old woman who walks around with a bullet-proof vest under her clothing on a hot day while she's fighting pneumonia. That's one tough woman.

This will pass. Think of the thousands and thousands of people candidates are in contact with every day during the campaign. It's a wonder more don't come down with some illness.

Don't fall for the hysteria coming from the right. They've been wrong on just about every single thing they've said about Hillary.

Also my post today shows that they are consumed with hatred to the point where it's become a pathology.


President Obama is enjoying an almost 60% approval rating from the American people. So, again, their insane comments about Obama's "failed" presidency is nothing more than their wishful thinking. A large majority of the American people do not agree with their maniacal hatred of President Obama.

Shaw Kenawe said...


That comment from one of Trump's Deplorables is truly insane, but not unusual.

Jerry Critter said...

If Trump said that half of Clinton's supporters are deplorable, I would figure he means the other half, the half that I don't belong to.

Shaw Kenawe said...

I forgot to address this in your comment, Dave:

"Two thoughts... Hillary chose to not be politically correct, or PC. And then the folks who hate PC got pissed off. Why?"

Because of Hillary Derangement Syndrome. Clearly, Trump and his Deplorables say the ugliest things at his rallies, and Trump appeals to the ugliest strains of racism, white supremacism, sexism, and all the other ugly negative isms in our culture. There is no rationality to be found in Trump's supporters. They scream "Kill her!" at his rallies and hope for her to be raped and burned alive, but when Hillary criticizes that rancid behavior, they scream NO FAIR!!!!

Don't expect rationality from that portion of Trump's supporters. They lost their minds a long time ago.

JOAN DARK said...

Q: How does it feel to know that you're seen by a presidential candidate as "deplorable"?

A: It feels good because it's accurate.

Ducky's here said...

It's not deplorable, it's patriotic

Possibly the pastor is a Clinton supporter?

This is clearly the mindset of a lot of a significant portion of his supporters.
If this man is elected and they actually have an effective instrument of power, I shudder.

Dave, the right is deeply offended because the remark forced then into a momentary self reflection and they can't admit to any flaws.

Shaw Kenawe said...


That pastor was cheered by the people at the football game? When he suggested that someone who doesn't stand for the national anthem should be shot? Every dictator and tyrant who's ever lived would commend him for that suggestion, and every person who loves our Constitution would have spat on him.

I find it hilarious that half of the Trumpistas are offended by being called "deplorable." "Deplorable" is exactly the adjective to describe people who scream "Kill her!Lock her up!" at Trump rallies, and who insult Muslims at Trump rallies, and who say "F**k the beaners (Mexicans)!" at Trump rallies.

Hillary spoke the truth. That sort of hatred and hate talk is deplorable. And yes, they've reacted exactly the way a guilty child who's been caught in a lie reacts when he or she is called out on it.

Shaw Kenawe said...

At Orlando rally, Trump supporters yell "Hang that N***er!"

But...but...Hillary said "deplorable!"

There isn't a thing wrong with criticizing racists who call African-Americans the deplorable "N" word.

Jerry Critter said...

I call them a lot worse than deplorable!

Lucy Hsmilton said...

Justice will be served on all the Progressive-Liberals and their Puppets like Hillary and Obama and Kerry and Polosi, etc, Justice will be served on them when they die, Our Lord will Judge them and their punishment will be to be in Hell for Eternity, most of them are nearer to their Day of Judgement than I am, most of them are pushing 70 or are already well into their 70s and high 80s.

why isn't kaine getting more aggressive?

i think the whole problem is trump has normalized his idiocy so he can say anything and it's not news but poor old hillary gets pilloried for any slip up.

Lucy Hsmilton[sic]

Donald Trump is 2 years older than Hillary!

The only thing that pops your cork is thinking about people suffering in a nonexistent afterlife? Good luck with that Ms. Hsmilton!

Jerry Critter said...

Lucy, You realize, don't you, that Jesus was a progressive liberal. He may not like YOUR attitude too much.

"i think the whole problem is trump has normalized his idiocy so he can say anything and it's not news but poor old hillary gets pilloried for any slip up."

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winnah!

Donald Trump said the majority of the American population (51% women) should be treated like shit. His followers say nothing.

Hillary said the people who call for her death ("Kill her!") and who screamed "Hang that N***er!" are deplorable, and the Goopers go wild with outrage.

Clearly the Trump Goopers are not rational people.
