Hillary Clinton called half of Donald Trump’s supporters “deplorable.”
The significance of the crack goes far beyond typical overheated campaign rhetoric. She calculated her words carefully. She made sure the press was their to record these words:
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it.”
Let’s be clear on what she’s saying.
1.If you disagree with liberal prescriptions for fixing Black America, you are racist.
Conservative calls for the end of Black Genocide (aka human abortion in inner city abortion factories) are racist according to liberal orthodoxy. So are calls for welfare overhaul, school choice, and opposition to job-killing minimum wage hikes, because entrenched liberal interests oppose it.
2. If you disagree with liberal demands for unfettered human abortion, you are sexist.
3. If you oppose basing marriage on lifestyle rather families and the fruit of the union of a one man, one woman definition of marriage, you are a homophobe.
4. If you oppose open borders, you are a xenophobe.
5. If you oppose coddling Islamic thugs and want to label Islamic terrorism for what it is, you are an Islamophobe.
There is no room for discussion. There is no chance for common ground. You are a hater. But that’s not the end of the story.
The Obama Government has made it clear that you will be sanctioned if you disagree. The Chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Martin Castro, echoes Ms. Clinton in a report the commission released titled, “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling nondiscrimination principles with civil liberties.”
Here is what he says:
“The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance.”
He mirrors Hillary’s litany of liberal code words.
In other words, Islam, homosexuality, human abortion, and liberal policies that induce social pathology in the Black Community trump religious liberty and all things Judeo-Christian. Note the use of his word “supremacy” in describing Christianity.
Team Obama is in the process of gutting the First Amendment. Hillary Clinton has made it clear that she will complete the job.
