Deplorable Leftist Fellow-Travelers

CounterPuncher John V. Walsh reminds us that "Hillary’s words will give the attendees at a $250,000 per plate event a feeling of moral superiority that they are not among the 'irredeemables' but are in fact among the Redeemers" — Progressives Are Targets of Hillary’s “Basket of Deplorables” Speech. A sample:
    Make no mistake about it, this bit of invective was no accident. Hillary is carefully scripted, and especially so in these months of her campaign. Cameras were rolling and she knew it. Moreover, she has said the same thing repeatedly on camera in front of high-end donors. Why then did she say such a thing?

    The first and obvious point is that it was heartfelt. She, like the rest of the Elite, harbors deep feelings of contempt for the common Joe and Jane.

Response from a distance: Notes from underground | يارب يسوع المسيح ابن اللّه الحيّ إرحمني أنا الخاطئ: It is deplorable to call people deplorable. Words can be deplorable. Political policies can be deplorable. But people? No.
