Since the 2005 Billy Bush/Donald Trump tape was leaked last Friday, timed with the Wikileaks drop of the Democrats’, including Hillary Clinton’s emails, the Deplorables have resolved to fight on — with or without the GOPe.

WARNING: This post has Clinton-related content and some links with language unsuitable for children. I apologise in advance, but the truth must come out, no matter how distasteful.

The Deplorables’ situation

It is essential to understand what the Deplorables experience in American life.

Many worry how they will get by. Tax increases are a huge issue.

One Pittsburgh resident — an ex-Hillary supporter — describes what he and his family members experience. Excerpts and a summary follow. I have edited spelling and grammar.

How is it there is not enough tax to make sure homeless veterans are taken care of, yet the United States can afford to send countless mobile phones to Africa? There are more sanctuary cities for notional refugees, yet there is not enough tax revenue to finance Social Security for older Americans.

Taxes continue to increase, but (emphases mine):

Burden is shared. I have no say Where does that money go? Same thing with the lottery; where is that cash? Tax tax tax … My school dropped German and French. My dad gets 1700 a month social security. He has no 401k. He had six kids all of whom pay lots of taxes. He always paid his taxes. My mom became a nurse once dad [left]. She has some money but how many people know it was under Clinton that food was excluded from COLA? I said from the beginning Obamacare was about privatizing Social Security. Demand you pay for health care, we can demand you pay for retirement. Think of the money. Trillions to be made: what choice would you have? You might support a homophobic misogynist regime like Saudi Arabia every hour you worked and paid a tax as Supreme Court ruled Obamacare went through; why not retirement?

Then, there is the elite’s perception of these Americans, from 2008 to the present. The main author of The Crawdad Hole — ex-Clinton supporters for the most part — has a Twitter description which sums it up perfectly:

Obama called me a bitter clinger. Hillary called me deplorable. Terrorists call me an infidel. Trump calls me an American.

I do not know how many of my readers have seen the following tee shirt, which originated with Infowars, but a lot of anti-Hillary voters are wearing it:

Open disgust

Wisconsin

After the Billy Bush/Donald Trump tape was released, the GOP elite denounced Trump.

Trump was supposed to appear in Wisconsin last Saturday, October 8, but a sanctimonious Paul Ryan — Speaker of the House — rescinded his invitation to the state’s annual GOP fundraiser.

Attendees paid $30 apiece to get in. They expected to see Trump.

Buzzfeed reported:

ELKHORN, Wisconsin — In a jarring illustration of the chaos now engulfing the Republican Party, supporters of Donald Trump clashed bitterly with GOP leaders at a rally here Saturday — booing elected officials, heckling Paul Ryan, and angrily demanding greater establishment support for their beleaguered presidential nominee …

When, early in the event’s program, Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel tried to address the recently leaked video that has sent Trump’s campaign into a tailspin, the crowd erupted in angry protest.

“Get over it!” one heckler yelled.

“Trump! Trump! Trump!” others chanted.

Appearing taken aback by the reaction, Schimel made a brief nod toward support for the nominee — “Donald Trump will appoint judges that will defend our Constitution” — and then quickly changed the subject.

Other elected officials became more combative with the audience. When Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner talked about how voters had been coming to the Fall Fest for years to support Ryan and other local Republicans, hecklers shouted, “Not anymore!” and, “I’m for Donald Trump!”

“Why don’t you listen to what I have to say instead of interrupting me?” Sensenbrenner snapped. Soon, the 73-year-old congressman was in a shouting match with the Trump supporters in the crowd. “Listen to me, please,” he kept repeating, before ordering the audience to “clean up your act.”

By the time it was Ryan’s turn to speak, the mood had grown indisputably hostile. He took the stage to scattered boos, and shouts of, “What about Donald Trump?” and, “Shame on you!”

Trump supporters are now unlikely to vote down ticket for Republicans who have shunned their candidate.

This is audience reaction to Ryan’s speech:

One young man wore a RAPE shirt with Bill Clinton’s image on it — another popular Infowars product.

Michigan

Alex Jones is giving between $1,000 and $5,000 to anyone who can get captured on camera with it at a rally. More money is given to those who can stay on camera for several seconds and mention Infowars.

Alex is looking forward to hearing from this man who turned up at Clinton’s October 11 rally in Detroit. Not only will he receive $5,000, but he will be invited for an interview on the Infowars show:

How he was able to get one of the privileged places on the podium will make for an interesting story.

Townhall has a really clear close up.

Amazingly, the woman with the slogan ‘Stronger Together’ and who is a self-described tireless advocate of minorities had this reaction:

Hillary Clinton sarcastically laughed as the man was shoved down the stairs and she told people outside the event to “follow him” and “stage an intervention.”

Wow! I hope the man stayed safe.

I bet Big Media will ignore that story.

North Carolina

At an Obama rally for Clinton, a man and a woman paraded beneath the stage in Greensboro on Tuesday, October 11. Each wore homemade ‘Bill Clinton Rapist’ tee shirts (8 seconds in).

An American Lookout article says that Obama was interrupted again by other protesters:

The second and third times by people yelling about Bill Clinton and rape.

The article continues (emphases in the original):

These protesters are everywhere!

Will the mainstream media finally do some reporting on what these people are saying? On what they’re willing to get arrested for to say? …

It’s become counter-cultural to be Conservative. Conservatives are now the rock stars. The punk rockers of politics.

And these are courageous citizens! They’re standing up against Obama, the Clintons and the Mainstream Media to shout the truth!

California

At the weekend in Bakersfield, the city’s local Business Conference took place.

Hundreds of people showed up to hear conservative commentator Laura Ingraham (LifeZette) speak in support of Trump.

Gateway Pundit has a brief excerpt of the crowd cheering:

THIS IS AN AMAZING VIDEO–
Thousands of voters at the Bakersfield Business Conference tell the GOP to stand by Donald Trump and FIGHT!

Nevada

The same day that Trump supporters booed Wisconsin GOPe types, Nevada Rep. Joe Heck disavowed the candidate. The audience booed him:

Breitbart reports that Heck has fallen prey to the George Soros funded Common Defense PAC, notionally comprised of military veterans, and a MoveOn.org petition hidden within (emphases mine):

Common Defense PAC has a simple mission statement: “As veterans, we swore to protect the rights of every American. We continue to fulfill this promise by standing against Donald Trump.” Its “leadership team” page on its website lists sixteen military veterans with no contact information for them.

On its Facebook page, the PAC features a video from a different super PAC in which a mainstream reporter asks Nevada congressman Joe Heck if he trusts Trump having the nuclear codes.

“Watch this. Share it. Then sign the petition to tell Congressman Heck to disavow Donald Trump,” says Common Defense PAC, with the link to the petition: fornevadasfuture.com/heck.

But the petition is actually a MoveOn.org petition called “Joe Heck: Disavow Donald Trump.”

One can be pretty sure that Heck and the rest of the GOPe don’t know the men behind the PAC:

Common Defense PAC is registered with the Federal Election Commission at a P.O. Box in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The group’s treasurer is Jonathan Matthew Smucker, a Berkeley doctoral student, activist, and radical writer who did not return a request for comment for this report.

The PAC’s July quarterly filing report with the FEC only lists one donor: a Baltimore IT consultant named Marjorie Roswell who gave $20,000 on June 30.

Perry O’Brien is the group’s director. O’Brien is a longtime left-wing activist.

O’Brien was a medic in Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne and received a discharge in 2004 for being a conscientious objector.

Perry O’Brien personally started a MoveOn.org petition called “Tell GOP leaders to disavow Trump and his attacks on veterans.” The petition, which has 121,242 signatures as of this writing, is “To be delivered to Sen. John McCain, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Rep. Paul Ryan, and all GOP leaders.”

Well, there you go. It worked. Don’t Republicans investigate these things? It took me a simple Internet search.

What Deplorables will remember

On Tuesday, October 11, Laura Ingraham analysed the disparity between GOPe and their core voters:

The vast majority of Republicans want Donald Trump to be president … they have come together in an effort to save the country from Hillary Clinton.

A small minority of Republicans do not want Donald Trump to be president. They prefer Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately for most of the Republican Party, this small group of angry dissenters includes many of the people at the top of the party — officeholders, major donors, “strategists,” and “conservative” pundits. These people have been able to leverage their connections with the mainstream press to repeatedly attack Trump — even though they refuse to say anything nice about Hillary.

instead of having an honest discussion as to whether the GOP should be a globalist party or a nationalist party, everything dissolves into personal attacks.

When this election is over, the vast majority of Republicans are going to remember that their supposed leaders — the same officeholders, millionaires, and pundits who told them that they had to “come together” and support John McCain and Mitt Romney — refused to do the same for Donald Trump. They will know that what they have long suspected is true — the Republican Party is led by people who have more in common with the Clintons than with the GOP base. And that knowledge will affect the future of the GOP for years to come.

The biggest irony in all this is that, as one pro-Trump Rep. Steve King of Iowa said, quoting a fellow congressman:

“He said, ‘If you are so worried about a sexual deviant in the White House, helping Hillary Clinton will put Bill Clinton in the White House,’” King paraphrased.

Very true, indeed.
