It appears that Hillary is regrettable about some comments she made at a fundraiser in the ballroom of the Cipriano Wall Street Friday night, 9-9-16. Tickets were from $1200 up to $250,000 per person. I feel certain that Americas new elite class of citizens that attended did not include retired senior citizen veterans like myself. Do you feel offended that you were not invited?
If you were not there she was quite comfortable describing that all Trump supporters fell into two category’s. If you support Trump as I do see which Basket you fall into. I found these direct Hillary quotes in a Newsmax article that cited a recording of her remarks obtained by Variety.
“To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables. “Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable, but thankfully, they are not America.”
“That other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down. The economy has let them down. Nobody cares about them. Nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures.” “And they are just desperate for change,” she said. “It doesn’t even matter where it comes from. They don’t buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different, that they won’t wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they are in a dead end. Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well”.
Well I am dead certain that I feel like I fit into “Basket” number two. Do any of the 600 people who read my articles consider my words to be “offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric”? I have never been accused of being “Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic”, yet.
I plead guilty to knowing the government has let me down. The Obama economy and the Federal Reserve has doomed the future for most of my children and grandchildren. They have destroyed retirement for everyone but the “elite” , including Americans like myself . Before Obama if you saved enough to retire you had interest on your savings to live on like our parents were able to do.
The Federal Reserve removed this option to support the runaway spending by the Democrats to create a “Welfare Society” . We appear to have enough Americans on poverty or paid to sit on their ass and do nothing to assure we have a Liberal/Progressive government until we go broke. This will not be too far away/
You can be certain that I am “desperate for change”. It “matters to me where it comes from”. All we have is to “hold out some hope” that we can see a return to a Christian conservative America. I feel that most honest and freedom loving Americans do hope to wake up after the election and see jobs re-appear and Donald Trump as our President elect. Hillary and the Democrats will never understand us and we do not need empathy. They forgot us a long time ago.
Which “basket’ do you fit in? Do you agree with me? C Brewer 9-11-16
