"Deplorable" and worse

Before being diagnosed with Pneumonia Hilary Clinton was in the news over the weekend for describing some of the people supporting Donald Trump as 'deplorable'. Then following the predictable counter attacks by right wing news outlets - like the Murdoch owned Fox news - Clinton very unwisely in my view promptly retracted this statement. For when you look at some of the people and groups supporting Trump's campaign you can see that Hilary Clinton was in fact correct to label them as deplorable.

Like former Ku Kux Klan leader David Duke  http://www.thewrap.com/former-ku-klux-klan-leader-david-duke-throws-support-behind-donald-trump/ 

Like Rocky Suhayda the leader of the US Nazi party https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2016/08/07/top-nazi-leader-trump-will-be-a-real-opportunity-for-white-nationalists/?utm_term=.c14a8b7fbd70

Like Jared Taylor who manages the neo fascist website 'American Resistance' and who recently offered such pearls of wisdom as the following "one of the most destructive myths of modern times is that people of all races have the same average intelligence”.

Like the self styled 'union busting' firm Cruz and Associates http://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/7/2/1544524/-Trump-Paid-Union-Busters-500-000-In-Failed-Effort-To-Keep-Maids-From-Unionizing-At-His-Hotels

Like Troy Newman a deranged evangelical christian,and President of the fundamentalist anti abortion group 'Operation Rescue', who apparently thinks it's acceptable to murder doctors involved in performing Abortions in the US http://wonkette.com/603316/donald-trumps-new-bff-thinks-its-cool-to-murder-abortion-doctors-isnt-that-nice

Looking at that lot 'deplorable' is if anything an understatement.
