The Left: a self-actualisation movement for people with emotional issues

It wasn’t just the well-heeled donors at the Cipriani Club who laughed and applauded when Hillary called half of Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” — “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic.”

Her campaign advisers also thought it was a killer line. This wasn’t an off-the-cuff remark captured on a bartender’s cellphone. We know that because: (1) nothing is ever off-the-cuff with Hillary; (2) it was part of her scripted remarks, and (3) she’s used it before.

Nor did anyone in the media mind one little bit. They’ve been calling Trump’s supporters racists for more than a year now. Calling other people “racist” is the media’s favorite thing to do.

Whenever the left talks about “racism,” it has nothing to do with what’s good or bad for black people. It’s just another event in the Fabulous White People competition, where black people are the chips.

There was a period in this country when racism was a big problem. Unfortunately, when it mattered, liberals were on the wrong side. Only when the principal danger facing most black Americans was that they’d be patronized to death, did liberals start seeing “racism” everywhere.

Sad people with meaningless lives were suddenly empowered to condemn other people. I beat you in blacks yesterday; I’m going to beat you in women today. This is what makes them feel superior to other people, especially other white people. It’s not about racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.; it’s just a self-actualization movement for people with emotional issues.

Ouch

    Dead right Ann.

    She nailed it. Add in veganism and environmentalism – at least as practiced by leftie Westerners – just virtue signalling on steroids now.

    r people with emotional issues.
    A very “kind” description, I think!

  • Cadwallader

    You see this phenomenon amongst liberal progressives when it comes to climate change, anti-vax and fad diets. These sad and despicable people take the stance that they are possessed of special knowledge which even if they imparted it all to us we are not special enough to understand it nor appreciate their self-defined wisdom. Generally as people age they accrue some degree of balance and wisdom but I constantly meet people who are 60+ who seem to be unable to develop perspective and rational thinking. These are the dwellers of the Left who survive in their ridiculous cocoons of pompous certainty. Give a fool a stupid notion and he’ll defend it with unblinking advocacy but give an idea to someone capable of rational thought and he’ll be constantly testing it. This is the real fault with democracy. It counts heads rather than what may be inside them.

    I love Ann Coulter. Hard as nails herself, skin as thick as a rhino, a consummate wordsmith and singularly able to wind leftie into unending knots just by existing. She also presents very well as well, I should add. Some no doubt could accuse her of ‘Monday morning quarterbacking” with this article, but even they cannot deny she is on on point here.

    The words “racist” and sexist” are bandied about by the left all too often to suit their bias and narratives in obvious blunt attempts to shut down any dissent or opposition. Hilliary Clinton’s referenced “Basket of Deplorables” is just her definition of the same thing. Those that use these words in this manner obviously missed the moral behind ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’. But then, is that any surprise?

    You know someone is good when the msm absolutely HATE what they have to say. Ann is right up there.

  • Dumrse

    There are deplorable racist comments and then there’s racism. I’m happy to be labelled in the latter camp as it simply shows I am happy to speak my true blue mind and no leftie will shut me down.

    Yep, they’re at it again.

    Trump’s a rascist because he encouraged the “birther” conspiracy, that’s the latest scandal in today’s news. Despite his statement that he acknowledges Obama’s American birth, apparently he has now committed the new sin of telling the truth; that the whole birther controversy came from Hillary supporters. Our news media appears befuddled by this fact and pretend to be amused by Trump’s naivety…but the truth is:

    The Telegraph 2011:
    “Birther row began with Hillary Clinton supporters”
    “The lie that Barack Obama was not born in the US has been fuelled by fringe Republicans — but supporters of Hillary Clinton, now Mr Obama’s Secretary of State, are largely to blame for starting it.”
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/8478044/Birther-row-began-with-Hillary-Clinton-supporters.html

    Politifact 2015:
    “It’s an interesting bit of history that the birther movement appears to have begun with Democrats supporting Clinton and opposing Obama. But Trump, and others who have made this claim, neglect to mention that there is no direct tie to Clinton or her 2008 campaign. The story appears to have started with supporters of Clinton, an important distinction.”

    You know, I have never seen the MSM as biased as they are now when it comes to questioning Trump and Clinton. Trump is consistently labelled a ‘madman’ yet Clinton is a hard working saviour to all. If people think like me, they will vote against the liberal biased MSM and choose the alternative. When is telling the truth actually racist? When is labelling Islam hateful Islamaphobic? If the truth hurts then examine yourself and question whether you believe in the truth or live a life of lies and deceit. And then ask yourself, who would you rather have lead you, wherever you are in the world – a liar or a person making the hard calls that matter when you are faced with a world out of control.

      The media have a deep cognitive dissonance when it comes to trump. They believe there attacks on him weaken him, but in reality it’s what he feeds on,

      The stronger Trump gets from these attacks, the more furious the media attacks will be. Notice too, just how effectively Trump has tacked to the left, and the media hasn’t so much as a clue what he’s done, and he’s done it right in front of them.

      Trump will win, and by a wide margin and the media will be sitting there wondering what the hell happened.

    That’s basically the heart of SJBs. They’re not about social justice but about the need to feel important and superior. Which is why ridiculing them and knocking them off their self-built perches is so effective. And why apologising to them is so counter-productive.

    When Hillary Clinton and her Democrat party influence-pedlars label 1 quarter of the american population as “deplorables” for preferring the “other guy” in a 2 way election for president they are not being racist. They are speaking out their bigotry because they are bigots. They always accuse other people of bigotry to hide their own ugly, festering,purulent bigotry against people who do not bow to their own political correctness.

    This race to the White House has certainly lifted the lid off the media bias more than ever before, attention has been now been focused on the media and their agenda world wide, it raises the questions of who is controlling the media and to what end and how are they going to profit from this.
    It has also lifted the lid (part way) off the corruption in Washington and in high Political places.
    I think a lot more is to come out about the corruption, but there is a growing concern amongst the general population to start questioning the role of those in Power, and how they manipulate their positions for personal gain.
    Selling positions of power to the highest bidder is unethical and corrupt, but even more so is the money pouring into personal pockets from dodgy countries who are intent on bringing down the West.
    The President is playing his waiting game and is very quiet, the silence is deafening from the White House and that is very dangerous I believe, as he and his backers will be putting their next moves into place. I think the American people are in a terrible no win situation, as Obama opens the doors even wider to his Islamic invaders and fans the flames of racism.
    These people are supposed to be working for the people, NOT against their people and the general population really need to demand better from those they elected.

    Very astute of Ann Coulter to point out that by definition 100% of Muslims also fit into Hillary’s basket of deplorables.
