We know Hillary thinks half of Donald Trump supporters are deplorable and now we know what she thinks about Bernie Sanders supporters. Remember that Trump supporters include scores of Generals, Admirals, Medal of Honor Recipients, Gold Star Families, former Bush Cabinet Members, Veterans, Union Members, Coal Miners and hard working Americans of all races and religions.
Hillary, behind closed doors among her crowd of high brow wealthy donors, has a lot to say about “children of the Great Recession” who are frustrated by a sluggish economy.
“They are living in their parents’ basement,” Clinton said. “They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future.”
Hillary is right about that, our good jobs have fled the country along with our good companies that had to flee to avoid total bankruptcy under the high taxes and impossible regulations she supports.
Madam Secretary continues, “If you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing.” Barista is a Bartender.
Clinton described youth as political newbies, who really don’t know how politics works. She also implied that young voters have a sense of entitlement that they ought to be able to get great jobs straight out of college like their parents were able to do.
“There is a strain of, on the one hand, the kind of populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach that we hear too much from the Republican candidates. And on the other side, there’s just a deep desire to believe that we can have free college, free healthcare, that what we’ve done hasn’t gone far enough, and that we just need to, you know, go as far as … Scandinavia, whatever that means, and half the people don’t know what that means, but it’s something that they deeply feel.”
The leaked audio’s revelation that Clinton played up the stereotype of the bottom-feeding, basement-dwelling “Bernie bro” in her private fundraisers likely won’t win her much support from Sanders’ supporters but Bernie is French kissing Hillary like a defeated Gladiator pleading for his life before Nero.
Hillary is offering more of the same old tax and spend, do gooder blather that got us where we’re at and our youth are not falling for it. In other words, in spite of great advertising and a great sales force at the Dog Food Factory, the dogs won’t eat the dog food!
Even Hillary’s The New York Times detailed just how badly Clinton is performing among potential voters in the 18-34 group. And it’s not just that they don’t like her (although that’s a major factor), it’s also that Clinton seems stuck in a time warp in which she doesn’t understand just how big social media consumption is. Unlike Sanders, she doesn’t seem to understand that Millennials get most of their news online, not on television, which is the traditional method for campaign advertising.
As Joe Biden would say, “that’s a big *&@!%! * deal.”
The Pew Research Center estimates that the 18-34 group we call the Millennials surpasses Baby Boomers as the largest generation alive today, making them a prime target for both Trump and Clinton. And unlike Sanders, Clinton just doesn’t seem to have a knack for connecting with them. Instead, she tends to insult them again and again, in a mildly scolding manner like a tolerant aunt who secretly hates children.
While Trump is often surrounded by police officers, veterans and working people, Hillary clearly shows how little regard she has for the average American citizen. It will be interesting to see just how Millennials react to the leaked audio once the story starts making its way around the Internet.
Hillary’s actions continue to prove that what she wrote in her Senior Thesis praising her idol Saul Alinsky at Wellesley College remains her roadmap for the future of America. “Alinsky’s conclusion that the ‘ventilation’ of hostilities is healthy in certain situations is valid, but across-the-board ‘social catharsis’ cannot be prescribed,” she wrote. “Catharsis has a way of perpetuating itself so that it becomes an end in itself.” She continued: “Interestingly, this society seems to be in a transition period, caught between conflict and consensus.” It was clear where 21-year-old Hillary Rodham stood: “… as our ‘two societies’—the establishment, the anti-establishment—“move further apart contrived conflict serves to exacerbate the polarization.”
Contrived conflict is causing bloodshed in our streets and it is often contrived by the new segregationists who support Hillary and number in the hundreds of thousands. The sovereign citizens movement is a network of individuals and organizations who believe that the United States government is illegitimate. They operate under names like “Black Lives Matter, New Black Panthers, Sovereign Citizens” and the “Communist Party”.
We may all need to crawl through the hole in the fence and seek refuge in Mexico if law and order is not restored to America.
