Hillary trashes Middle Americans as racist and sexist

In a recent address to a Mumbai, India audience, Hillary Clinton said:

“If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where [President Donald] Trump won,” she explained. “I win the coasts, I win you know Illinois, Minnesota, places like that.”

“But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product,” she continued. “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.”

“You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights,” she added, “you didn’t like women y’know, getting jobs, you don’t want, y’know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.”

“So it was a symptom but it was also a cause because having someone run for president who voices those ideas, who rejects so much of the American story and our values, was also the underlying cause as well.”

This is in line with what her former boss, President Obama, said;

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Isn’t it interesting that the backward people, the “numnuts”—someone who is a constant source of trouble—of America, you know, those uneducated people who cling to their guns and religion that anyone and everyone who is enlightened long ago shed have stopped the progress of the real America, “the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign.”

Isn’t it interesting how the progressive elites hold so many Americans in distain, in contempt because they won’t bend over and let progressivism be shoved up where the light doesn’t shine. Poor Hillary, she had such a horrible time with these “flyover” backward, provincial Americans who wouldn’t let her win. These clodhoppers need to be constantly reminded by rightminded elites how clodhopper-ish we are, so thanks again, Hilary.

Maybe it would benefit us to read our very first president, George Washington, writing his second farewell address in 1796:

“The unity of government which constitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so, for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment that you should

  • properly estimate the immense value of your national union to your collective and individual happiness;
  • that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it;
  • accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the palladium of your political safety and prosperity;
  • watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety;
  • discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned;
  • and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.”

Why? Because  . . .

  • it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth
  • political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed,

When everything becomes political we cease being in union with each other and we encourage factionalism pitting one person, one group against the other and nobody wins, we all lose. Washington warned us about this. We didn’t heed his warning.

You want peace and happiness? Stop warring against each other. Look for points of agreement and celebrate those. We are not enemies of each other even when we disagree.

Dare I quote Biblical scripture? I will.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23.)
