Hillary: Bernie Bros Are Unshaven “White Supremacists”
Make no mistake, NY Times reporter Amy Chozick is a BIG Hillary supporter.
But her new book, Chasing Hillary, has some juicy nuggets.
In the public’s mind, Clinton’s “deplorables” quip is remembered as evidence of her disdain for much of Trump’s fan base. But there was one other group Clinton had a similar dislike of: Bernie Sanders supporters. As one person who had talked to Clinton about the difference between Trump and Sanders crowds recounted, her feeling was that “at least white supremacists shaved.”
Progressives are simply the lowest of the low to the Democratic establishment.
No wonder they would rather lose to a Republican than win with a progressive. For them it's a lesser-of-evils choice too.
You are I are closer to animals than human beings in their eyes.
It's about more than just corruption. It's about classism.
It was in the company of friends and acquaintances paying mountains of cash that Clinton came up with “Friends don’t let friends vote for Trump,” “I stand between you and the apocalypse,” and the notorious “deplorables” line. It “always got a laugh,” writes Chozick, “over living-room chats in the Hamptons, at dinner parties under the stars on Martha’s Vineyard, over passed hors d’oeuvres in Beverly Hills, and during sunset cocktails in Silicon Valley.”
We seem to be on the edge of France in 1789, or Russia in 1917.
Both political parties are completely cut off from the working class. They have no idea at all what is going on in this country.
Eventually even working-class liberals will figure this out.
For the moment, the Democratic establishment is still winning.
So far, in every swing seat race that pitted a more left-wing nominee against a party-favored center-left nominee, the left wing has lost.
Or to put it another way.
In the Senate, Democrats in Washington have essentially cleared the field in every remotely competitive race this fall, including several GOP-held seats where the party hopes to win and tip the majority in its direction.
So the people who have led us to disaster are still calling the shots.
This story isn't over by a long shot.
After very modest and unremarkable gains in 2018, we will see an economic crash yet again. And once again, those same Democrats will work with the Republicans to screw over the working class that they have nothing but contempt for.
Except this time the anger will be much worse, and things will change.
