The contortion of rage in the angry feminist’s mug is a thing of beauty.
Donald Trump has really handled the “Basket of Deplorables” attack beautifully. The Democrat-Media Collaboration on this line of attack was supposed to work like this:
1. Hillary denounces Trump supporters as “a basket of deplorables.”
2. Media runs with the phrase and challenges Republicans to denounce their deplorable followers.
3. Republicans obediently comply, thereby conceding the point and giving power to it, while also alienating their supporters who resent being cast as deplorables.
This 1-2-3 was exactly how the Democrat-Media Complex (DMC) succeeded in turning Mitt Romney’s (truthful) “47% remark” into a successful attack, and how the DMC turned the McCain campaign against its own VP candidate.
But Trump successfully short-circuited the attack by refusing to comply with Step 3, and instead turning it around into an attack on Hillary; a very successful parry it is difficult to imagine a standard-issue Republican pulling off.
No wonder the DMC is eager to change the subject and talk about how courageous Norwegian Blue is for “powering through” her pneumonia, which is the only medical condition she suffers from, pinky swear. Other than that one little thing, she’s ready to run a triathlon, so they assure us.
Hillary has often said her idol was Eleanor Roosevelt. Here is Eleanor Roosevelt’s progressive vision for the United States, in her own words.
The only way I can see to get the maximum service out of our citizens, is to draft us all and to tell us all where we can be most useful and where our work is needed. … complying with the wishes and doing the things which those in authority thought should be done.
Hillary “Norwegian Blue” Clinton expresses the same idea, even more ambitiously: The Progressive Left will no less than “redefine what it means to be human.”
“Let us be willing to remold society by redefining what it means to be a human being in the 20th century, moving into a new millennium.”
It baffles them that we “deplorables” reject their progressive design, and resent their efforts to impose it.
