Hispanic Catholics largely favor Clinton; white Catholics split, but lean toward Trump According to LifeNews.com the close divide among Catholics is worth noting in relation to the abortion issue. The Catholic Church takes a strong position against abortion, but the new poll shows that voting Catholics are narrowly supporting the candidate, Hillary Clinton, who is being labeled the most radically pro-abortion presidential candidate in U.S. history.
Clinton’s extreme position on abortion is clear. At a campaign event in August of last year, she compared pro-lifers to terrorists. Then, during a September, also last year, interview on CBS, Clinton revealed that she wouldn’t support a federal limit on abortion “at any state of pregnancy” in the name of a “woman’s right to choose.”
Well, I am a woman, white, Catholic, Latino and pro-life and never in my life would vote for Hillary Clinton.
On a recent trip to Laos, President Barack Obama said Americans are so uninterested in the rest of the world because they are “lazy” and don’t feel like knowing about “other people.”
President Obama has criticized the American people plenty during all his trips abroad. How dare he say Americans are lazy! That Americans are uninterested in the rest of the world? He is very interested because he is traveling the world for free, at our expense.
How dare he call Americans lazy when he is the one who hardly works and spend his time playing golf even during a natural disaster that affected “his people”? He claims he is an American; well we are all his people.
Now to add insult to injury, very recently, Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump’s supporters “deplorables.”
The good lady in her typical arrogance said: “You know, just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islam-phobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable. But thankfully they are not America.”
Well, I am an American and I am not deplorable, and neither am I a racist. Do you know who is deplorable, Mrs. Clinton? Your husband! He is the one who is deplorable; he’s a compulsive womanizer.
And now to complete the latest nonsense of the year — former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, took a swing at a Donald Trump piñata on Friday, September 9 of this year, when he visited Spanish-language radio’s “El Show de Piolin,” acting like a child, without thinking he was acting ridiculous. He is an old man, former president of a big country and should act as such. Then talking about Donald Trump’s trip to Mexico he expressed the opinion, “Nothing about this surprise trip to Mexico makes sense to me. For starters, I don’t see why Enrique Pena Nieto would want to meet with Trump. Pena Nieto’s poll numbers are already in the toilet and Trump is widely disliked south of the border.”
There was no surprise trip; Mr. Trump did not show up in Mexico unexpectedly. An invitation was extended to him and he accepted it. As we always say, “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.” Can anybody imagine if by any chance he had declined the invitation?
Mr. Trump is not a little gold coin for everyone to like. It is probably true that he is widely disliked south of the border, but, Mr. Fox, you are widely disliked north of the border and still you put foot in our country.
