Back during the 2016 election cycle, Hillary Clinton infamously declared half of America as a “basket of deplorables” declaring that they were racists, xenophobes and homophobes. There has been much written and spoken by opinion-based (rather than fact based) television CNN talk show hosts Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper and MSNBC non-fact talk show hosts Mika and Joe, Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes, to name a few, declaring that white men are the “biggest terror threat” in America. And of course, only conservative white men – I am guessing that is how his husband Anderson Cooper gets a free pass.
Despite the propaganda talk show hosts claims, are conservatives actually intolerant, hateful people – especially conservative white men? Not quite. Let us take a look back through recent years, and the occurrences of hateful and intolerant rhetoric, and where in which they came from.
But, because these outlets, and political rival Ms. Clinton claims it, does it make the claim true?
According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary (still an authoritative entity for spelling and definitions of the English language), Xenophobia is: “fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign”
We have been unable to locate a specific point in time that President Trump or his supporters earned this derogatory remark, however, it appears that Ms. Clinton may have been referring to President Trump’s opinion of building a wall to stop illegal immigration. However, it seems more people support a wall to prevent illegal immigration than some media outlets allow you to believe.
Breaking: It appears that the “Investigation” into the 2016 Presidential has had questions raised about Robert Mueller, and withholding evidence from a Court that would exonerate the President of any wrongdoing.
The faux pas investigation, has already, according to PolitiFact, cost American tax payers around twenty-million dollars – and that was as of May 23rd, 2018. Aside from the money spent by Mr. Mueller, his “team” consists of (now-fired) FBI Agents that assured each other that they would not allow Mr. Trump to become President, and financiers of Hillary and Bill Clinton.
What began as an obviously partisan “investigation” has been cemented as not only partisan, but potentially illegal as well.
I was watching television tonight and saw that Tom Arnold has a new show out on some un-watched cable television channel (Viceland?) called “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes.” In one description I saw, it said that he was seeking tapes on President Trump’s “bad behavior.” Tom Arnold must be a voice for righteousness, morals and an expert at Presidential behavior. Obviously, with his hard-core investigative journalism.
However, I must ask Mr. Arnold, where were you, standing up for women, decency, and morals of the office in the 1990’s? Where was this hardcore investigative journalism that you now embrace since it is someone that you, personally, do not like that holds the Office?
