The real problem with deplorable

In the end, bad grammar may have done liberalism in.

Deplorable is not a noun. At least it wasn't until Hillary said half of Trump supporters agree with a "basket of deplorables."

Her phrase became a rallying point for the Deplorables.

Goofy phrase. It rhymes with Adorables.

Deplorables sounds like something your granny would call your friends when you were a teenager. Hooligans. Ne'er-do-wells. Deplorables. Unfit for for liberal society. Which we are and we quite well like it. That is why we are for Trump. This is Delta House, dammit. She's Dean Wormer threatening to notify our draft boards.

The rest was predictable. Deplorables embraced it. The media said it was taken out of context. Trump made an ad.

But let us not overlook the sheer stupidity of this phrase. Even if it didn't rhyme with adorables, even if Trumpkins failed to rally behind it, this was a poor choice of words that undercut her message.

She delivered this phrase to an LGBT crowd of liberals.
You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.
Her tone was bored as she rattled off her list. This-ist. That-ist. Everything-a-phobic. There was no life in her voice. None. She was bored with the list. So was her audience. They know it is just name-calling. Her tactic was pure Alinsky. She wanted to isolate, dehumanize, and belittle half of Trump's supporters. Her effort failed because she gave the rote reasons for liberal H8. And was bored with it.

Indeed, her "basket of deplorables" is now in the public conscience. She cut liberals at the knees with that phrase. Now, when you call someone two or more of those names, the thought pops up "basket of deplorables," and you just lost the argument. There go the liberals again, throwing their basket of deplorables at someone, rather than offering a rational argument.

Given how many state legislatures and governorships Obama has flipped Republican, Hillary's campaign could end the Communist Era of the Democratic Party. For without the ability to arbitrarily declare people "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it," what do liberals have?

A basket.

An empty one at that.

  1. It has been rumored that Illary has some neurological problems. We have seen cases of her seizing up in public. Perhaps she said "basket of deplorables" because she couldn't recall the actual phrase she was supposed to use?

    1. No rumor.

      Ask any nurse or doctor who's seen her in the last couple of years.

  5. They've just lost the argument. Without even mentioning Hitler, Godwin's Law kicked in. Game over, they lose. Thank you Hillary!

  8. In such a popular persecution, individual sufferers are in a much more deplorable condition than any others. --Burke.

    "Of this I am certain, that in a democracy, the majority of the citizens is capable of exercising the most cruel oppressions upon the minority, whenever strong divisions prevail in that kind of polity, as they often must; and that oppression of the minority will extend to far greater numbers, and will be carried on with much greater fury, than can almost ever be apprehended from the dominion of a single sceptre. In such a popular persecution, individual sufferers are in a much more deplorable condition than in any other. Under a cruel prince they have the balmy compassion of mankind to assuage the smart of their wounds; they have the plaudits of the people to animate their generous constancy under their sufferings: but those who are subjected to wrong under multitudes, are deprived of all external consolation. They seem deserted by mankind, overpowered by a conspiracy of their whole species."
    --Edmund Burke (1729–1797). Reflections on the French Revolution.
