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?
An empty one at that.
