Former President Bill Clinton compared Donald Trump’s base to “your standard redneck.”
“The other guy’s base is what I grew up in,” he told a crowd. “I’m basically your standard redneck.”
Mr. President, I know some rednecks. And you, sir, are no redneck.
His wife had previously smeared Trump backers as a “basket of deplorables” who are “irredeemable.”
“The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it,” she said at an LGBT-themed fundraiser in New York City.
Of course, it’s not all that unusual for Democrats to insult patriotic, church-going Americans.
President Obama started the denigration in 2007 when he called folks who “cling to their guns” and “cling to their religion” as bitter Americans.
Well, I’m proud to call myself a gun-toting, Bible-clinging, Flag-waving, Son-of-a-Baptist and I’m not bitter and I’m not deplorable. I’m a blessed American.
To quote that great American philosopher Charlie Daniels, “What this world needs is a few more rednecks, some people ain’t afraid to take a stand. What this world needs is a little more respect, for the Lord and the law and the working man.”
Amen, Brother Charlie.
