The Spiritual Life Of Hillary Rodham Clinton

A few days ago, the mask accidentally slipped from Hillary's face as she was caught on camera referring to supporters of Donald Trump as belonging in "a basket of deplorables" and, if that weren't bad enough, should be considered "irredeemable". Here is the full quote:


“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.


This is probably the most breathtakingly offensive outburst I've ever heard from a major national politician. She's just shat on half the country. But it's this last word, "irredeemable", that I want to discuss. As other pundits have noted, this is not some throw-away adjective, but rather, it's one fraught with meaning, and by 'meaning' I mean 'religious meaning'. Scissors-32x32.png
