Deplorables: “Hillary caused the NYC bomb”



It didn’t take Republicans much time to pin the New York-New Jersey bombings on—guess who?—Hillary!

I’m naming names. Here’s Deplorable Laura, on Twitter:

“Ahmad Khan Rahami is just another one of those peaceful Muslims that Hillary keeps talking about.” The delightful Ms. Laura also has an ungrammatic message for Democrats: “This is terrorism. This is Islam. Liberals, don’t get it.”

Paging Deplorable Laura: The Basket misses you! Please come back. We’ll even include a free guidebook, “Proper Use of the Comma in Punctuation.”

But wait, there’s more! Deplorable Laura again: “Hillary’s State Department Flooded Minnesota with Somalis. Minnesota’s US Attorney, Andrew Luger: ‘We have a terror recruiting problem in Minnesota.’” So, you see, all domestic terrorism can be blamed on Hillary Clinton. Not George W. Bush, who started this mess. Not the neocons, who continue to lie about it. Nope: it’s Hillary, who had a special department at State, “Office of Flooding Minnesota with Somalis,” which she funded lavishly, while cutting embassy budgets and sharing emails with ISIS.

Poor Deplorable Laura, whose real name is Laura Stietz. She apparently is a P.R. agent for a radio talk show person, Rod Eccles—at least, she calls herself his “National Promotional Agent.”

And who is Rod Eccles? A fear-mongerer who tweeted yesterday (following the bombs), “It soon may not be safe to visit, work or live in the Big Apple.” Stir up that slop, Roddy! That’s right out of the Trump-Kellyanne Conway playbook: make voters so afraid that they’ll vote for a dangerous lunatic. Hermann Goring took the same approach during the Nazi’s rise to power when he observed: The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY.” As Deplorable Laura knows well.

Here’s Eccles again on his Facebook page, proving that he’s not a single-issue deplorer: “I use the correct bathroom for my sex.”

Well, aren’t you special? He must have a penis! By the way, on one of his web pages, Eccles has a link to one of the craziest sites I’ve ever seen: Gog-Magog Rising. Anyone up for a Rapture Party?

The reason we have to know about these things is because Trump and his powerful backers would now have us believe that the candidate is “presidential.” He’s been running around striking solemn poses and posing for Mount Rushmore. Well, don’t be fooled. Trump emerged from the darkest sewers of the extreme right, and no amount of comb-overs can change that. To know where he stands, just check out his followers: Deplorable Laura, truly a paranoid hater if ever there was one, and Rod Eccles, possibly the only black Republican in the country whose name isn’t Herman Cain.

Here’s one picture from Deplorable Laura Stietz’s Facebook page that tells us all we need to know about her:


You know and I know and they know that President Obama will be on the short list of Great American Presidents (it drives the teabaggers nuts!). That’s quite an achievement, given the unprecedented hatred of Obama, led by Donald Trump, Deplorable Laura, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity and the rest of the wingnuts. How sad is it for somebody like Stietz to be so consumed by racism and xenophobia that she seems to spend all her time hating, hating, hating. Seriously, what’s up with that? Calling Obama an “asshole” is the sign of a mentally ill and possibly dangerous individual with massively unresolved anger issues. But then, that is exactly the species Trump decided to appeal to. He’s done a good job: they love him. He loves them. Truly a match of deplorables made in Hell.

  1. You have to hand it to Laura, though. What a devastating indictment of Obama, that lack of any Islamic terrorism on American soil prior to him taking office. Ah, to be back in the terror-free days of, say, fifteen years ago.

  2. “Under those eight years before (Barack) Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States” since Sept. 11, 2001.

    — Rudy Giuliani on Monday, August 15th, 2016 in a speech in Youngstown, Ohio

    Not so fast . . .

  3. “You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts.”

    — Daniel Patrick Moynihan
