Not those of us who knew and believed her.

No.
She owes US an apology for f*cking walking it back.

I don't understand this comment at a semantic level.
In what way do we or anybody owe someone else an apology for what they said? That makes no sense.

Perhaps the author means that they think we owe her an apology for how we reacted to what she said. However, that is a completely different thing. The author of that statement owes us all an apology for being an idiot who doesn't understand how words work.

She should have said "useless shiathead" so they couldn't own it.

Right after she apologizes for losing an election to Donald Trump.

She could have done a ten-minute profanity laced rant listing hundreds of negative characteristics of the worst of humanity and it still wouldn't have been inappropriate in describing these chucklefark buffoons.
 
2021-07-21 6:29:04 PM  
She should have stood by what she said.  That was the only "real" moment she had in her campaign, and she should have challenged people to prove her wrong instead of bowing under pressure from pearl clutching talking heads.
 
2021-07-21 6:30:22 PM  
As insults go, "deplorables" isn't exactly the kind of horrible offensive, face-melting, hair-curling vicious slur that the rightists pretended that it was. I could think of worse things.

They aren't deplorables, they're plague-spreaders, child-cagers and dictator-bootlickers.
 
2021-07-21 6:30:27 PM  
Just like some of you farkers owe me an apology for saying Hillary had too much baggage to run in 2016.
This "deplorables" remark was just an example of the stupid crap she said that got her vilified back then. The right wing media, the "liberal media", all printed and said bad shiat about her when it counted most.

Worse was that anus Comey who farted out the October surprise - a veritable turtle head, crowning turd-birth of an investigation that suddenly slipped back in just prior to election day.

Yeah, what a fun election time that was...

Wasn't the response largely "she's not wrong, she's just an asshole who poured jet fuel into the anti-Hillary/pro-Trump gas tank with that remark"?

In hindsight, that response also wasn't wrong.
 
2021-07-21 6:32:20 PM  

puffy999: No.
She owes US an apology for f*cking walking it back.


Sure. Just as soon as Trump apologizes for, well, pretty much everything he said, did, like letting over 600,000 Americans die.

/Trump can die in prison, period.
 
2021-07-21 6:32:39 PM  
She's been right just about every farking time. Suck on that.

How about maybe not taking a voting block that's activated by anger and grievance and saying something that angers and aggrieves them? How about not encouraging your opponent's supporters to vote against you? How about not your opponents media supporters a soapbox?

She was in politics for decades and she was too stupid to figure that out? Hillary can Pokemon go F herself.
 
2021-07-21 6:33:45 PM  
It was correct, but it was also very effective at getting those very people even more motivated to turn out on election day. Not sure what the campaign was trying to accomplish there, but it didn't have the intended effect.
 
2021-07-21 6:33:51 PM  
Trump has a higher KDA than Killery. Seems like the cult is cool with drinking the kool-aid.

How many of the Trumpers who see 1/6 as an insurrection also think that is a positive?

I mean, if anything you should be sending that comic to her and her campaign. FFS she was still blaming Bernie last year.

I don't want an apology from Trump.

I am however in favor of the latter
 
2021-07-21 6:35:39 PM  
Imagine the shiat she would have said had she known the outcome.

Yeah the shiat they get mad about is always some tiny wimpy bullshiat. They're like those soccer players who throw themselves on the ground when someone's elbow comes near them.
 
2021-07-21 6:37:42 PM  
Just 20% call it "an insurrection"

...and they do because they are proud of it.
 
2021-07-21 6:37:52 PM  
Channeling my inner hipster, I was saying her estimates were far too low about .25 seconds after I heard the "deplorables" remark.

I literally said, "that's way too low" immediately before she went on to her next comment.

May have?
My Weeners on hearing that quote was that she was being kind with saying only half.

holdmybones: She should have said "useless shiathead" so they couldn't own it.


If it triggered the libs and gave them the endorphin rush they would adopt it in a minute. They hated the deplorable label for several years but eventually embraced it because it wouldn't go away.

Murkanen: She should have stood by what she said.  That was the only "real" moment she had in her campaign, and she should have challenged people to prove her wrong instead of bowing under pressure from pearl clutching talking heads.


Difficulty: The "liberal" media was 120% hellbound to 'get' Hillary, no matter farking what, and they weren't even the slightest bit subtle about it. They never, ever got over failing to 'get' Bill and if they had a chance they were going to 'get' her, fark the future of the nation and democracy itself.

And they also, of course, blame the Clintons for not being open and nice and friendly with the pit of rabid snakes that is the media.

/yes I know snakes can't get rabies

Congratulations!

As the Boobieser to cram "bernie" into an unrelated thread
(and in a very disingenuous misleading way I might add)
you've won the Golden Troll trophy!

Only people who disagreed at the time need to apologize, and they need to apologize to everyone who's been pointing out what complete worthless scum these farking fascists are.
 
2021-07-21 6:43:47 PM  
She also correctly pointed out that Republicans were her biggest enemy in a debate as well.

Seems labelling them as enemies was the right choice after all.

hubiestubert: He ain't wrong.


He is. She acted like a Farker when she needed to be a politician and managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by alienating and polarizing potential voters. That is not how elections are won.

THANK YOU.

She's not wrong, but still managed to do the worst possible thing. She:

1) Didn't keep her mouth shut and not unnecessarily antogonise the Deplorables.
2) Didn't speak the truth and show she had the courage to stand by that truth.
3) Instead, she spoke the truth thus further galvanising the already-aggrieved and perverse MAGAts, but then disappointed her supporters by walking it back, again showing herself to be exactly the spineless, triangulating windsock we all suspected her to be.
