We Are All Deplorables Now

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Since Reagan's time, there are few conservatives who have not been called one or more of the names in Hillary Clinton's litany of devils, her "basket of deplorables" — racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, bigoted, irredeemable. The battle over Kavanaugh's nomination, and the disparagement of the Republicans who have stood strongest by the judge, seems to have awakened even the most congenial to the new political reality. We are all deplorables now.

'We Knew Exactly Who He Was When We Voted for Him'

Salena Zito, New York Post

The more Harry listened as the campaign went on, he explains, the better he understood that the Democrats definitely hated Donald Trump and the Republican establishment hated Trump. All the lobbyists on K Street hated Trump. The Chinese came out against him. India came out against him. Mexico came out against him. Harry says: "I figured I must have a candidate because everybody who's coming out against him are all corrupt, and he's an outsider. So, I said, 'I think I found my candidate.'"

Hillary, Meet My Wife

I mentioned to my bride that Hillary Clinton remarked in an interview in India that “pressure from Republican husbands is what caused white women to vote for Trump.” I’ll have to paraphrase her response, otherwise it would be unfit to print: “Are you kidding me?” she exclaimed.

The Old Deplorables

The remark ripped aside the mask of left-wing compassion and empathy. It’s not Adlai Stevenson’s Party any longer, a Party of honorable liberals. Instead, it’s a progressive Party, and progressives are liberals who have learned how to hate. Before Hillary’s LGBT audience, her remarks were greeted with the derision and laughter that bares its teeth. And then the chattering class of columnists doubled down.
