The Clintons have a demonstrable disdain for the “little people” that do not share their elitist values. They despise those who work for a living and reports have circled for decades about how atrociously the Clintons treat their assigned Secret Service agents – you know, the people who are duty bound to sacrifice their lives for them.

Hillary has repeatedly derided those who make their living from the coal industry as she has repeatedly promised to put them out of work.


On Thursday, Bill Clinton belittled the “coal people”[2] who take issue with her stance dedicated to eradicating the industry from which the bulk of our energy comes.

“We all know how her opponent’s done real well down in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky,” Clinton said at a rally in Pennsylvania. “Because the coal people don’t like any of us anymore.”

Claiming that they voted for him in 1992 and 1996, Clinton dismissed their concerns and said, “I won twice and they did well,” referring to the economic boom his administration enjoyed thanks to the dotcom bubble.

He belittled these “coal people” for blaming the president. “They blame the president when the sun doesn’t come up in the morning now,” Clinton said. He also claimed that these “coal people” supporting Donald Trump believe that global warming is some “Chinese hoax.”

In reality, global warming is not so much a Chinese hoax as a global one.

Blaming “coal people” for not jumping to another industry to make a living, Clinton said, “Coal employment peaked in 1920, coal production peaked in 1950,” adding, “Climate change is real and we’re going to have to change our energy source.”

It’s undeniable that over time, the world will have to transition to renewable energy sources.

Where liberals and conservatives disagree is whether this change should be hastened by a government that purports to know what is “best for us.”

Changes in industry occur in response to market conditions. If energy companies wish to survive, they must look 10, 20 or even 100 years ahead and that means preparing for renewable energy. It does not mean government should clamp-down on energy companies that supply our country with energy in the here and now. It does not mean that government should pick winners and losers and restrict available energy options to favor those who traditionally donate to Democrats.

And it most certainly does not mean that these elitist ingrates should belittle those who rely upon coal to put food on the table.

If any of the Clintons had ever worked a day in their lives, they might see the inherent wrong in belittling those who justifiably worry about government overregulation strangling local economies.
