Why Does Hillary Clinton Get Away With Hate Speech?

By Robert Paul Reyes

At the LGBT Gala, Hillary Clinton said: You could put half of Trump`s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables .. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic -- you name it.

This type of hate speech has no place in a presidential campaign, shame on Hillary for trying to match Trump`s divisive rhetoric. Can you imagine the uproar if Trump had said: You could put half of Hillary`s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables .. The mirthless lesbians, the Sharia-loving Muslims, the militant feminists, the sashaying sissies -- you name it.

Trump`s dog whistles do attract a few white supremacists, but the vast majority of his supporters are patriotic White Americans who feel that no one is speaking to or for them.

How can Hillary condemn Trump for his tone and hateful rhetoric when she is wallowing in the mud with him. This election can`t be over too soon, I feel like taking a shower whenever I hear Hillary or Trump speak on TV.
