Hilary Clinton back in her 2016 presidential campaign called Trump supporters “deplorables”. It caused a stir and a backlash. However, six years later, it cannot be denied that a segment of Trump supporters are deplorables or worse.
In previous chirps I mentioned how Trump supporters have issued death threats to numerous election officials, to anyone not seen as siding with Trump. I want to making a distinctuion here. To not siding with Trump, as opposed to, not siding with the Republican party. A previous chirp mentioned a letter that Republican Committee member Adam Kinzinger received that threatened the life of him, his wife and his newborn. Kinzinger has just released transcripts of voicemails he has received over the past while. These are a sample of them, as sourced from RollingStone Magazine:
Hey you little cocksucker. Going to come protest in front of your house this weekend. We know where your family is and we’re going to get you you little cocksucker. Gonna get your wife, gonna get your kids you little cocksucking bastard.”
“I hope somebody like him kills your nasty mom, and your nasty wife. It’s not a threat, it’s a hope.”
“You’re gonna swing for fucking treason you communist fuck.”
“I hope you get terminal cancer, you motherfucking pig. Fuck you.”
I decided not to edit out the profanities. There was one post where the threat was only “I hope you die naturally”. Considerate. At least just naturally as opposed to slaying him. Don’t think that Kinzinger is the only Committee member to get death threats. He has only been the most vocal.
Hilary was right. There is a segment of Trump supporters who are deplorable. Trump is in this segment (he does support himself). He has incited these idiots with his continuing “Big Lie” He is scum.
