Hillary Clinton Is the ‘Deplorable’ One

Hillary Clinton has a deep-seated belief that those who support Donald Trump are evil racists.

We know this because she says it repeatedly — in scripted and un-scripted moments — both at rallies and in softball interviews with carefully selected journalists.

Days before Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump’s supporters “deplorable,” she used similar but even more severe language, calling Trump’s supporters “racists” in an interview with Israeli television’s Yonit Levi (who is extremely sympathetic to Clinton).

In the interview, which aired on Israel’s Channel 2, Mrs. Clinton said, “If I were to be grossly generalistic, I’d say you can take Trump supporters and put them into two big baskets. There are what I call the ‘deplorables’ — the racists, the haters, the people who are drawn [to him] because they somehow think he will restore an America that no longer exists. So just eliminate them from your thinking because we have always had a kind of paranoiac prejudicial element in our politics.”

The entire interview, in English, is available here, and Mrs. Clinton’s comments about the “bigotry” of Trump and his supporters begin at about 1:50.

Clinton’s comments that Trump supporters were “deplorable” echoed remarks she later made at a Democratic Party fundraising event, and even though she apologized for those comments, Clinton’s other remarks — both in Israel and America — prove that she truly believes it.

Later in the Channel 2 interview (16-minutes in), Mrs. Clinton was asked about the Obama Administration’s refusal to use the term “Islamic terror.”

The Democratic nominee said that the Obama administration policy was well-founded, and that Trump’s comments about Muslim terrorists only aggravated terrorism. Clinton insisted that Islamic terrorist leaders were “rooting for Trump.”

“Bringing Islam into the definition of our enemy actually serves the purpose of the radical jihadists,” Mrs. Clinton said, in a remark that was totally unsubstantiated by anecdotal or clinical evidence.

“Trump has made Islam and Muslims part of his campaign, and basically the jihadists see this as a great gift. They are saying, ‘Oh, please, Allah, make Trump president of America.’”

If Hillary Clinton has a tape of some of those Islamic terrorists endorsing Trump, I would like to hear it. Maybe she could show us some intercepted emails from Al Qaeda or ISIS. But I somehow doubt that.

However, before all of that, maybe Mrs. Clinton — who hugged Yasser Arafat — can release some of the emails between herself and her top aide, Huma Abedin. The Abedin family have all worked in and for Islamic groups and media outlets that have close connections with the Muslim Brotherhood and/or Hamas.

As someone who speaks a few dialects of Arabic and has studied and traveled widely among the Arabs, I suspect that more extreme Islamists (some of whom may have donated to the Clinton Foundation) are praying for Hillary’s victory. And that would be — how shall I put it? — deplorable.

    While Trump has right wing extremists as unasked for fringe supporters;there are hard core anti-Semites at the core of the Democratic Party. Do you remember the pro Palestinian protesters at the democratic convention burning Israeli flags?Also a Israeli statement was voted down by the demo platform committee.The black lives matter group are definitely anti-Semitic.Syd Blumental and Huma Abadein are not our friends.Why would Hillary be our friend?

    This article is deplorable. Algemeiner is a valuable source of information about the I/P conflict, but please stay out of politics concerning the United States presidency.
