The next ‘deplorables’? Clinton campaign rips ‘backwards’ Catholic beliefs in leaked e-mails

HillaryWASHINGTON, D.C. – “Conservative Catholics” are the latest Americans to be smeared by members of Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign, leaked emails revealed on Tuesday show.

Catholic beliefs are bashed as “backwards” and conservative Catholics are termed responsible for “an amazing bastardization of the faith” in one of the more than 1,000 hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta released Tuesday afternoon by WikiLeaks.

“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” writes Clinton campaign Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri. “Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”

The exchange between Palmieri, then president of the leftist Center for American Progress (CAP), John Halpin, a senior fellow for CAP, and Podesta, occurred in April 2011 and was entitled “Conservative Catholicism.”

“They can throw around ‘Thomistic’ thought and ‘subsidiarity’ and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they’re talking about,” Halpin wrote Palmieri and Podesta.

    Is anybody surprised?

    All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep seated cultural codes, RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. and structural biases HAVE TO BE CHANGED.

    Donald Trump needs to stop wasting his time on the Republican congressional leaders and go after the scoundrels that are revealed in these leaked emails. There is a lot of support to be gained by holding the Clinton campaign responsible for the remarks made about conservative Catholics.

    As long as Donald is wasting his energy on Republican politicians he is going to lose. Go after Hillary and her cronies for the victory.

    Why are people surprised? We see it daily all over this country Christians/Catholics targeted everywhere. A King who puts out an edit to the U.S. that all bathrooms have to be for all. He can’t write law and what do we see all these states just falling on their knees to the King in compliance.

    These leaks show disdain for Average Americans, H hates them Trump right, they show disdain for Christians of any sort and disdain for everything our country stands for, everything.

    They all as we knew, Lobbyists, RINO, Progressive/Communist/Socialists, Globalist, Bilderberg, UN and EU, Big Business, etc every enemy we have in our country and around the world against Trump. They know if he wins the people win and then Trump “Walks the Walk”, heads and positions role and they are going to go by the wayside for years to come. But as Trump said, I can only get this going it is up to the people to continue it after I leave office.

    Helalry feel out on 9/11, a vision was caught in a camera lens atop a beam of light in front of the tower, personally I see that as a sign, the “Wormen of the Flies” fell on her face in the presence of good.

    Muslims and refugees seem to be the only segments of society that these despicable human beings have any regard for whatsoever.

      And of Europe but Europeans stopping it. Why you ask because they can kill us and that is what they say they will do. No blood on the hands of the leaders huh? Nope. But rid of how many of us?

      By the way it was interesting the plane crash today and the pilot Muslims on purpose, because on the net the Muslims have been talking planes again to us and in Florida all restrictions on Muslims learning to fly lifted and my man says when he goes to the fly schools they are everywhere.

      So like the Japanese suicide planes think what they could do all over America.

      • HandsOffOurFreedoms

        Yep, the country has a very short collective memory. History should never forget the thousands of good Americans and human beings who suffered horrible, excruciating deaths on 9/11, all in the name of islam. And we have a candidate who has taken millions of dollars from those who sponsored the worst terror attack ever on American soil. How is that not treason?

        • Tiger

          How is Hillary after all that has been revealed in these emails not drug off the stage in chains? Because the entire government is corrupt.

    It seems to me that Every TYRANT in History wanted RELIGIONS abolished from their Realms alomg with a Middle class and the right to bear arms….and Shillery plans for a potus she will have eliminate freedom of religion, the 2nd amendment and other freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution ( what she Omitted mentioning on her SCOTUS speech) Gives me reason to believe that the SICK Pathological Queen of LIES wants a Tirrany for World Unification policies and the END of the US REpublic

    Let us all praise the forward looking “religion” of Islam. They know the place for women in the world, right under dogs and dogs are Haram. Unless they are Infidels, then rape and kill them.

    When it comes to the left–especially this current progressive socialist left perfectly displayed in BHO and HDRC and all the rest of the idjits–it is their way or NO way. Political correctness is their enforcer [along with the weaponized gov’t starting with federal but they’re working to federalize PDs so they want it ALL]. You agree with their world view, their ideology and question nothing they say or you will have problems ranging from minor to major depending on how much of an example they need to make to stifle additional dissent.

    It’s in their rule book and their guides, reinforced by their shared talking points to which everyone must adhere stringently.

    • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

      You are so right its their way or the high way.

      • empty pockets

        I know the saying is “my way or the highway” but for extreme ideologues like her [and Obama and some others] I believe we must modify it to be accurate: My [their] way or NO way.

        These are people that at some point won’t allow you to “hit the road”. They’re the ones who dig those mass graves. Socialism/totalitarianism always goes to that place. You could say it’s a highway with but one destination.
