As the worldwide Hillary Loser Tour sallies forth, the blame game surges ahead at warp factor speed. Earlier this week we analyzed Mrs. Clinton’s offensive launched against white women from her perch in Mumbai, India. But we mustn’t forget the other, crucial element of her on-going excuse equation: all the Hillbillies out there in those pesky Red States.
Attention Walmart Shoppers: In case you didn’t know, it’s all your fault. You are a backward lot. Not very productive, either. Indeed, it’s you people – Hillbillies, country bumpkins, America’s losers one and all that threw Mrs. Clinton to the back of the bus:
“If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won… What the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So, I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.”
Prior to the 2016 presidential election, we were a “basket of deplorables,” but now we are a pessimistic, lethargic and regressive bunch of Hillbillies in parts of the nation that don’t produce anything of worth. Yes, we are the leeches that suck the lifeblood from the progressive states that generate the greatness that is America.
What good could possibly come out of rural America? Well, it is our primary source for “inexpensive and safe food, affordable energy, and clean drinking water” just to name a few. In addition, “Agriculture makes up approximately 6% of the overall economy and provides almost 10% of U.S. employment” – not to mention about $130 billion agricultural exports in 2017 alone.
Amazing how much can be accomplished by this lackluster, lazy lot of country bumpkins. And we manage to do all this with only 14% of the U.S. population. This is all done, of course, after we put our shotguns back on the rack and hoist our overweight frames into the back of a pick-up truck, so we can all go to Sunday Meetin’ together. Goodness, Hillbillies may even be so out of step as to worship JEEEEE-SUS! Praise the Lord and pass the hat.
Mrs. Clinton’s obvious disdain for those who don’t summer at Martha’s Vineyard and winter in Vale is nothing short of astonishing. It is an insular, self-satisfied world filled with the elite hoi-polloi who look down their haughty noses at those of us who apparently make up the lower social class brimming with ignorance and witlessness. The bottom line with Mrs. Clinton is that we aren’t smart enough, nor good enough to recognize her superiority from that of a crude and lewd businessman.
Oh, the shame of it all. Red State Americans can’t be well read because well, most of us are probably illiterate and marry our first cousins. But nowhere in Mrs. Clinton’s remarks does one find any hint of responsibility for her stunning loss: That she disregarded large swaths of America, despite her husband’s warnings, that she eschewed those of us that feed America, that she discounted rural voters as not worth her time and effort.
Maybe Mrs. Clinton should make an appointment with a life coach because she is clearly incapable of taking responsibility for her own actions. As one such professional put it, “The inability to accept responsibility for our actions and behaviors is a result of insecurity. By taking responsibility one feels they are admitting to being weak, powerless, or an opportunity to lose the respect of others.”
It takes courage and maturity to take responsibility for one’s actions. Perhaps it’s time for Hillary Clinton to stop her bitter tirades against all of us in America’s heartland and grow up.
