Are You a Deplorable? Take This Quiz to Find Out

Are you a Deplorable? The answer might surprise you. Take this short quiz to find out.

1. If you agree with this characterization of American Elites: “The self-satisfied cosmopolitan culture that sprang up among the affluent 20% or so of the industrial world’s population, who became convinced that the temporary ascendancy of policies that favored their interests was not only permanent but self-evidently right and just.”(The Fifth Side of the Triangle The Archdruid Report)

You’re a Deplorable.

2. If you question whether globalization is actually in the national interest:You’re a Deplorable.

3. If you question whether endless wars of choice, drone strikes and foreign interventions that cost the lives of countless civilians are actually in the national interest: You’re a Deplorable.

4. If you see the major institutions of American life as corrupt, ineffective, and blatantly favoring the financial/social elites: You’re a Deplorable.

5. If you think it’s wrong that some immigrants (the illegal ones) get to “jump the queue” ahead of the millions of legal immigrants who have waited patiently for years and paid the costs of following the rules: You’re a Deplorable.

6. If you see the concentration of media ownership as a threat to democracy:

You’re a Deplorable.

7. If you think the War on Drugs that’s imprisoned millions of young men is actually a War on the American People, a war that was prosecuted for the entire 24 long years of the presidencies of Bill Clinton, G.W. Bush and Barack Obama: You’re a Deplorable.

The US population has increased about 40% since the War on Drugs started in earnest in 1980, while the prison/Gulag population has increased over 400% since 1980.

8. If you see the informal quotas on Asian-American students in America’s Ivy League universities as wrong and blatantly racist: You’re a Deplorable.

9. If you favor kicking over the tables of the money-lenders at the temple–those wonderful money-lenders who fund the campaigns of our political elites– You’re a Deplorable.

10. In summary: if you question the self-serving, self-congratulatory, hubris-soaked dominance of the neoliberal Elites, You’re a Deplorable.

If you think being Caucasian is a requirement to qualify as a Deplorable, think again: anyone can be a Deplorable. If you’re a Hispanic-American or African-American who has seen your community gutted by the War on Drugs, and you’re against the American gulag, then you’re questioning the status quo: Bingo, you’re a Deplorable.

If you’re an Asian-American who is tired of accepting blatantly racist limits on Asian students in top-tier U.S. universities–the same sort of insidiously informal quotas that limited Jewish-American students in the early 20th century–you’re a Deplorable.

Regardless of your ethnicity, class or religion, if you perceive the institutions that govern American life as corrupted, riddled with favoritism and spin or as broken, you’re a Deplorable. If you question or resist the dominance of self-serving neoliberal elites, you’re a Deplorable.

This isn’t the elites’ definition, of course, because resistance to their dominance can’t be identified as the defining factor. If this truth were revealed, the various tribes of Deplorables might realize they have more in common than the corporate media will let on.

Though it was Hillary Clinton who made the Deplorables public, the elites of both parties share the same fear and loathing of anyone who questions or resists their control.

BONUS DEPLORABLE POINTS if you answer “yes”: do you think being corralled into a remote holding pen reserved for “expressing free speech” (i.e. resisting the elites) is a mockery of the Bill of Rights? Bingo, you’re a Deplorable.

    May 13, 2014 JUST SAY NO…to the War on Drugs

    Every day, more Americans agree the War on Drugs has failed and must change. The Smarter Sentencing Act will save billions of dollars and ease dangerous overcrowding in prisons by reducing sentences for non-violent drug offenders..

    The Trial tax is a term used to describe a harsher sentence received when going to trial.

    If you think the core of the problem is the “top 20%” and not the top 0.2% you’re not deplorable, your stupid, or an agent of a coverup.

    • David S

      The bottom 19.8% of the top 20% are the easily conned, bought, or lured folks who do the heavy lifting for the top 0.2% who truly benefit from the policies. 20% would easily cover all the government employees who think they are being “public servants,” the mainstream media folks who think they are making things better with their non-stop lies and propaganda, the University and College professors who promote the political and economic agenda of the ruling elites, and so forth. And I do think that this entire 20% is “convinced that the temporary ascendancy
      of policies that favored their interests was not only permanent but self-evidently right and just.”

      I just don’t think that the bottom 19.8% realize that they are really doing all this garbage for the 0.2%ers. Ultimately I think that most of them somehow think they will be allowed into the club if they keep up the good work.

  • Josh Stern

    I would score a “yes” on numbers 3,5,6,7,and 8. On 4, I just miss, with a no, because I think the govt. is “effective” if judged by historical norms – certainly not if judged by what it could or should be. Question 10, I think is mis-written – a literal “Yes, I don’t think there is ‘neo-liberal’ dominance” seems counter to the writer’s likely intent.

  • David S

    ” the elites of both parties share the same fear and loathing of anyone who questions or resists their control.” The most important sentence in your entire post. Thinking that EITHER major party is the way out of this mess is delusional and an affront to the entire history of politics, economics, and freedom in this country.

    I’m worse than a “deplorable.” I’m a libertarian anarcho-capitalist (and quite proud of it).

  • Tobara

    The author of this piece of craps states:
    “5. If you think it’s wrong that some immigrants (the illegal ones) get to “jump the queue” ahead of the millions of legal immigrants who have waited patiently for years and paid the costs of following the rules: You’re a Deplorable.”

    Americans are a race of slobs, obese, transgendered, extremely addicted to all sorts of prescribed medicatons, OTC medicines and synthetic vitamins; moreover, these animals are lovers of wealth and pleasure, they are selfish, slothful and indolent, and can be inspored to raise above their brutish existence only fear of impending death or catastrophe.

    WITHOUT A MASSIVE INFLUX OF MIGRANTS REGARDLESS OF THEIR IMMIGRATION STATUS, THIS RACE OF SUBHUMANS (the American populace) IS DESTINED TO PERISH. The United States will need to absorve at least 300 million newcomers over the next two decades to help paying and sustaining the gargantuan costs related to the care of these insult-to-humanity people.

    Consequently, it is fair to assert that Charles Hugh Smith is indeed a deplorable because of the idiotic statement posted above.

  • You got me, buddy.

    I was afraid that she had me when I first saw her make the smarmy comment.

    But you’ve really got me.

    On all counts.

    My favorite of yours:

    Regardless of your ethnicity, class or religion, if you perceive the institutions that govern American life
    as corrupted, riddled with favoritism and spin or as broken, you’re a Deplorable. If you question or resist the dominance of self-serving neoliberal elites, you’re a Deplorable.

    Deplorables, unite?

    I would be considered ultra deplorable because I do not approve of and I condemn LGBTQ people and their practices, feminists, Jews and genocidal real estate prices.

  • RobinDatta

    I moved from Libertiaism that permits coercive violence by the state against non-violent non-compliers to anarchy, an absence of rulers and their coercive violence. I let my voter registration party preference of Libertarian stand. When I found that voting in the California Republican primary was limited to registered Republicans, I promptly changed my voter registration party preference to Republican, and voted for Trump in both the primary and the gereral election: I’m a deplorable Trumpeter, and proud of it.

    • David S

      So you are ok supporting the coercive and state-sponsored violent act of voting? Maybe you need to review the definition of anarchy again. I was more than happy to not participate in the sham that was this election in keeping with my anarcho-capitalist beliefs.
