Boy is the media clueless.
Suppose for a second that all the non-racist, non-misogynist, non-homophobic, non-bigoted, everyday ordinary people get so sick of you calling them racists, misogynists, homophobes, and bigots that they go out and vote against your candidate, do you:
A: Reevaluate your personal conduct and strategy of convincing people to vote for your candidate?
Or do you chose:
B. To call them racists, misogynists, homophobes, and bigots even more?
If you’re the idiots in the media, you chose B. All of a sudden, the same people who elected the nation’s first black President by historic margins somehow became super racist overnight and elected Trump, according to them.
We can ignore for a second that it’s minorities, not whites that got Trump elected, and look to their reaction.
Few in the media are doing any soul searching in reflection of how out of touch they were, and most are continuing to push the narrative that the American public was evil enough to elect a candidate they perceive to be Hitler (which, in all fairness, is every Republican ever).
Here’s just the latest bit of insanity, courtesy of Slate:
Donald Trump ran a campaign of racist demagoguery against Muslim Americans, Hispanic immigrants, and black protesters. He indulged the worst instincts of the American psyche and winked to the stream of white nationalists and anti-Semites who backed his bid for the White House. Millions of Americans voted for this campaign, thus elevating white nationalism and white reaction to the Oval Office.
Understandably, critics of Trump have used this to condemn Trump voters, tying them to the likely consequences of their vote, blaming them for foisting Donald Trump on the country and the world.
Millions of Americans are justifiably afraid of what they’ll face under a Trump administration. If any group demands our support and sympathy, it’s these people, not the Americans who backed Trump and his threat of state-sanctioned violence against Hispanic immigrants and Muslim Americans. All the solicitude, outrage, and moral telepathy being deployed in defense of Trump supporters—who voted for a racist who promised racist outcomes—is perverse, bordering on abhorrent.
Would this same liberal apply the same standard to Muslims, what all Muslims are abhorrent individuals because they follow a religion with racist, homophobic, and misogynistic teachings?
Well of course not. For some reason, liberals go quiet when there comes a group that actually personifies what they claim conservatives are. Instead of taking responsibility for Trump’s victory, they’d rather continue attacking their fellow Americans.
To that I say – good. It goes to prove that the Left has learned nothing, and as a result, we’re going to see four more years of Trump than they have planned.
