Bill Clinton: Trump Base ‘Standard Rednecks’ adds credence to Hillary "hates everyday Americans" comment

Bill Clinton: Trump Base ‘Standard Rednecks’

Bill Clinton: Trump Base ‘Standard Rednecks’

Another Clinton insult is directed at millions of Americans concerned about their safety and the economy

by Edmund Kozak | Updated 12 Oct 2016 at 11:55 AMThe Clinton clan has once again demonstrated its utter contempt for average everyday Americans.
Hillary Clinton infamously said that half of Trump’s supporters are a “deplorable” group of hateful bigots, and now her husband Bill Clinton has said that Trump supporters are “standard rednecks.”
Clinton’s use of the term was a clear dog whistle to Democrats.
Clinton made the comments during an appearance at Palm Beach State College in Belle Glade, Florida, on Tuesday. “Look, man, the other guy’s base is what I grew up in,” the former president told the crowd of Clinton supporters. “You know, I’m basically your standard redneck.”
The word redneck has obvious negative connotations, especially when bandied about by liberals, and Clinton’s use of the term was a clear dog whistle to Democrats. Trump’s base, Clinton is saying, is a bunch of ignorant, white racists.

As despicable as they may be, Clinton’s comments are by no means surprising. The Clinton camp has campaigned largely on dismissing and demonizing Trump and his supporters as bigots.
These wounds will continue to fester, and true bipartisanship will continue to be little more than a pipe dream, as long as liberals and progressives continue to portray all opposition to their ideological agenda as manifestations of ignorance and hate. So much for "stronger together."
