Light the Blue Touch-Paper, and Stand Well Back

Well! It looks as if Hillary Clinton is, with a big speech tomorrow evening, about to put the “Alt-Right” front and center in national politics (and into the minds of millions of Americans who previously had no inkling of it). I wonder what she imagines is going to happen.

Pass the popcorn!

    I saw that on a Fox News segment this evening. The piece highlighted a founding spokesman as well as Milo Y. Immediately Alt-Right was branded as “racist” by the usual suspects in both parties. Just as the TEA Party was. Just like anything alternative to the “proper think” given to us by the powers that shall be. The news segment said the Alt-Right seems to be eager for her to do it and to respond to her.

    Thanks to a commenter on my blog who introduced me to him, I’ve been watching this guy, “Styxhexenhammer666,” more and more lately. He seems like a creepy fruit loop at first, but he makes interesting and compelling points. In this video, he also agrees that Hillary’s about to step on a major land mine.

    With any luck she will step on the mine with both feet.

    Well Whitewall in that event I’d switch my “expletive” from a drats to something more of a Jehovah’s Witness Preachin’ at Pentecost variety swearword.

    *For the un-initiate [Henry?] to classic Hillbillianese that’d be like a switch from ‘events are aspiring to sustain me’ to ‘events are conspiring to deny me.’

    The city council meeting being the aspiring event and Hillary’s jumping on the landmine the conspiring.

    JK you are a mess! as my old granny used to say. Upon reflection regarding HRC and her unfortunate misstep…The Pentecostals would try to “heal” her on the spot, while the Jehovah’s Witness would want to pray for her during her “tribulation”.

    Good luck in the city council meeting and watch those swear words!

  8. OK, my redneck friends (JK & WW, “redneck” is a term of endearment), I fess up — I have no clue what you guys are talking about.

    Does it have anything to do with dancing or handling snakes?

    Nothing to do with the sacreds a’tall Henry.

    Just “the opportunity” of Hillary’s speech. In the first case the meeting getting me away from media but in the latter case, missing out.

    The difference being a drats and a hellfire and damnation I missed it?!!!
