Clinton and Obama had nothing to do with the reason Trump won. But Clintons and Obamas supporters voted for them for reasons that show why Evangelicals voted for Trump: policy or race. Why did feminists vote for Clinton, a clear woman abuser? They did it because he was on their side, regardless of his actions. Was it hypocrisy? Sure. And you can say the same for Evangelicals. But it is the reason. Why did Blacks vote for Obama? Race. He was black and they voted for him. Same with evangelicals and Trump, if you please.
You are willing to excuse blacks voting for Obama for race, but not whites voting for a white guy for racial reasons. Jeremy thinks the black voting for Obama was noble. No, it was racism, pure and simple. I totally accept and understand why they did it. But it was still racism.
I agree. But if Hillary says they are just a bunch of deplorables, what are they to do? She had no love for their positions. She would crush them with her agenda. When you drive your opponents into the arms of the opposition by your statements, I don’t see how you can criticize them.
You overlook the horrible candidate Hillary was. There were all kinds of reasons to vote against her. When the Democrats elect a person under federal investigation, who was allowed to destroy evidence, it seems a bit disingenuous to criticize those who voted against her as racist and hypocrites. There was no good choice here.
What you are saying is that you will forgive feminists for voting for Clinton who was clearly a womanizer, but will accuse Evangelicals of racism when Hillary calls them a bunch of deplorables and will do all she can to demonize and destroy them.
What were they supposed to do? I might add that Obama politicized the DOJ, FBI and IRS. he was willing to use their power against his opponents. Now there is little evidence that he did it himself, but for him to say that there was no scandal when it is clear the IRS went after conservative groups and that the FBI and DOJ were plotting against Trump, you are overlooking a serious issue.
My problem is your double standard.
