Hillary Clinton caught mocking Bernie Sanders supporters at a fundraiser

October 1, 2016

  This story has been all over the internet today so forgive me if you have already had your fill of it but this is just too good for me to ignore and I must give my take on it. Audio has surfaced of Hillary Clinton giving a speech during a fundraiser which was held last February, and in this video she is going after Sanders supporters and I guess what you could call their naivete.

  Here is more:

“There is a strain of, on the one hand, the kind of populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach that we hear too much of from the Republican candidates,” she said. “And on the other side, there’s just a deep desire to believe that we can have free college, free healthcare, that what we’ve done hasn’t gone far enough, and that we just need to, you know, go as far as, you know, Scandinavia, whatever that means, and half the people don’t know what that means, but it’s something that they deeply feel.”

  After calling Trump supporters racists she then lays into Sanders supporters, claiming they really do not know what they are talking about by saying they do not know “what it means” but that the “deeply feel” what she is obviously admitting is unobtainable without destroying the middle class.

His ideas are indefensible, the amount of taxes that would be raised on middle-class families is quite significant. He says we need to be a lot like Scandinavia. OK. Denmark, the top tax rate for middle-class families is 55 percent with a 25 percent value-added tax on top of that.

  But the former Secretary of State’s attack on Sanders supporters did not stop there:

“Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement,” she said.

  The term “living in their parent’s basement” is a dog whistle code word for losers, geeks, introverts, and maladjusted young people. Of course this comes on top of her once calling at-risk black youths super predators so I guess it should not be surprising to hear her views on young people.

  Hillary Clinton has already had problems convincing many Bernie Sanders supporters to vote for her in the November election and this certainly will not help to endear herself to them. Let me speak directly to those of you who supported Bernie Sanders and are now either supporting Hillary Clinton or are still undecided. You need to ask yourself one question: this is what Hillary Clinton said at a Democratic fundraiser when it can be assumed she was being more restrained, what do you think she said in all those Wall Street speeches she made (the transcripts of which are unavailable) where she took in hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars?

    I know that I am held accountable for what I say, what exactly is the difference between me and Hillary Clinton?
