So, Hillary Clinton has just said that at least a quarter of the American people are a "Basket of Deplorables". Particularly Trump and his most stalwart supporters.
That's led to this:
Jesus Christ. Someone totally needs to make that movie!!
My first thought when I saw that meme was "They forgot Harambe!"
But then I realized: "No. They all got together to avenge his death."
This is the first election in ages, maybe in my lifetime, where the Right has been better at political humor than the Left. The left are so old and trapped in their ever-increasing list of Things You Can't Make Fun Of, and so joyless in their miserable worldview that... well, that they're going to lose.
And "The Deplorables" was Hillary Clinton's "47%" moment. Like Romney, she has lost the plot when she suggested that the masses are revolting. Unlike Romney, this crazy bitch actually intended for her contempt to be publicly shown. And even crazier: she said it literally the week before she claimed that the last thing we need is "name-calling" from a presidential candidate.
So, I know it's been coming for many months now, but as of this blog entry I'm making it official: the RPGPundit is endorsing Donald Trump for President.
Before you think "well that's no big deal, you're right-wing", don't fall into that trap. I'm a libertarian. I believe in free speech and personal freedoms first and foremost. And this year is the FIRST TIME ever, in my entire adult life, that I have supported a Republican candidate for president.
I backed (to my shame) Dukakis in 88, Clinton in 92 and 96, (very lukewarmly) Gore in 00, Kerry in 04, Obama in 08 and (very reluctantly) in '12.
The fact is, I was not some stalwart right-winger. Nor have I changed. It is the LEFT that has changed on me. They moved. They gave up that idea of personal freedom, of defending speech (even hateful speech). The democratic left was for much of my life the party that defended Enlightenment values of our civilization. In the last few years, they've turned into the party that despises those same Enlightenment values and despises our civilization.
The Right has changed too. There's still Theocons in the GOP, but they're a minority now, and have LOST the influence. Their guys failed. Most of the Right doesn't give a shit who you want to fuck. Everyone cheered when Donald Trump said he'd defend LGBT rights at the convention.
And if you think that Trump is the racist candidate, think again: the Trump GOP cheer whenever they hear that Latinos or Black voters are increasing support for Trump, something that's been happening with increasing frequency lately. But don't just take my word on all this:
Here's what Trump supporters think about LGBT rights:
(note the applause)
Here's how far it's moved:
Here's what Trump supporters think about black people voting for Trump:
And he makes a very good point: Trump has killed no black babies that I know of. Hillary was responsible for the death of thousands of black babies, in Haiti, when she allowed Haitian-Aid money to be redirected to her Big-Business pals in exchange for bribes.
Here's what they think of Latinos voting for Trump:
So, I hope you see what I did there.
So here's to The Deplorables: The black people, gay people, Latinos, Asians, freethinkers, Arabs, Christians, Jews Atheists or Wizards, women, transgenders, coal miners, truckers, farmers, internet trolls, gamers, geeks, sex workers, hicks & rednecks, anarchists, twinks, conspiracy-theorists, satirists, meme-designers, fly-fishers, bull-dykes, Methodists and all the other associated American scum that Hillary Clinton has such contempt for.
The ones who are going to give the election to Donald Trump.
The ones who are going to cheer when she finally goes to prison for everything she's done.
I'm with them.
