Before we were deplorable and unredeemable, now we are also Standard Rednecks. We were proud to be Deplorables and certainly needed no redemption from the Clintons or anyone else.
Standard Rednecks? What’s a Standard Redneck? Is that different from a non-standard Redneck? Are they trying to divide the redneck community? I thought they were all for inclusiveness.
Clearly the Clintons don’t like ordinary Americans. We’re the little people. They don’t like Standard Rednecks either. I’m not clear as to which redneck group I belong. But I am still proud to be a Deplorable. And from that I need no redemption.
Bill Clinton: Trump Base ‘Standard Rednecks’
Another Clinton insult is directed at millions of Americans concerned about their safety and the economy

The Clinton clan has once again demonstrated its utter contempt for average everyday Americans.
Hillary Clinton infamously said that half of Trump’s supporters are a “deplorable” group of hateful bigots, and now her husband Bill Clinton has said that Trump supporters are “standard rednecks.”
Clinton made the comments during an appearance at Palm Beach State College in Belle Glade, Florida, on Tuesday. “Look, man, the other guy’s base is what I grew up in,” the former president told the crowd of Clinton supporters. “You know, I’m basically your standard redneck.”
The word redneck has obvious negative connotations, especially when bandied about by liberals, and Clinton’s use of the term was a clear dog whistle to Democrats. Trump’s base, Clinton is saying, is a bunch of ignorant, white racists.
As despicable as they may be, Clinton’s comments are by no means surprising. The Clinton camp has campaigned largely on dismissing and demonizing Trump and his supporters as bigots.
Unfortunately, while Clinton’s redneck remarks may be politically convenient in the short term, they are in the long term divisive and dangerous. Race relations are worse than they’ve been in decades and society is so polarized politically that it often seems as if there are two entirely separate Americas trying to occupy the same country.
These wounds will continue to fester, and true bipartisanship will continue to be little more than a pipe dream, as long as liberals and progressives continue to portray all opposition to their ideological agenda as manifestations of ignorance and hate. So much for “stronger together.”
