Stop Hating White People and Maybe They’ll Vote for YouPosted: November 20, 2016 | |
It’s either that or the Magical Intersectional Muslim Transwomen Coalition.
Daniel Greenfield writes: After a competitive race between the FBI and sexism, the left decided to blame “white people” for Hillary’s defeat.
Racist white people refused to vote for a white woman who was married to the country’s first black president. Samantha Bee, who enjoyed 15 seconds of fame replacing John Oliver, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart as the whiny obnoxious lefty id, declared that white people ruined America.
“Spare me the euphemisms. White people made Trump president,” a Washington Postheadline blared. “White people did this. And maybe (hopefully) not my friends — but certainly their cousins, their uncles, and their friends,” a racist Vox writer shrieked.
“White people elected Donald Trump,” Vice bleated. “White people put Trump in office,” Fusion whined.
Majorities of white people did indeed vote for Donald Trump. Oddly enough the left’s culture war of hating white people has only made them more likely to vote for anyone other than the left.
Funny how that works.
Trump won by boosting margins and turnout among working class white voters. The same group that the left trashes in its tirades about “white people”. When Samantha Bee says that white people ruined America, she isn’t talking about herself or the white hipsters sharing her videos on social media. We all know it means the bad kind of white people who shop at Walmart instead of Whole Foods, who drink Pabst unironically, who don’t listen to TED talks or own their privilege, who didn’t graduate from Amherst or from any college, but who fly American flags, drive pickup trucks and serve in the military.
A whole lot of those folks used to vote Democrat. Some kept on voting that way until fairly recently.
But the left grabbed the wheel of the Democrat Party, shoved the white working class out the door and replaced it with a glittery rainbow coalition of illegal aliens, Muslims and transgender activists who lost the White House, Congress, the Supreme Court and all but a handful of state legislatures.
Forget losing the South. That’s old news. Republicans won Pennsylvania and have the biggest legislative dominance since Eisenhower. Trump came the closest since Nixon to taking Minnesota and Republicans now have a state senate majority. Do we really need to talk about Wisconsin, Ohio or Michigan?
White men were racist and sexist. The white men who had voted for Obama but switched to Trump were more sexist than racist. The white women who voted for Trump over Hillary were, in the words of Hillary’s communications director, suffering from “internalized misogyny”.
Or maybe they just didn’t like being hated. Here’s what the left’s social justice politics had to offer them.
“White Women Failed Hillary Clinton. They Also Failed Other Women”, “White Women Sent a Terrible Message on Tuesday”, “Blame White Women for Country’s Failure to Shatter Glass Ceiling” and “White Women Sold Out the Sisterhood and the World”. Maybe even the galaxy and the universe.
The latter article whined that, “Most white women don’t want to be part of an intersectional feminist sisterhood” because they “identify more with white men than they do with black women, Latina women, Muslim women, transwomen” and defected from “the coalition of nonwhite, nonstraight, nonmale voters who were supposed to carry Clinton to a comfortable victory”.
Why would they ever do that?
In that intersectional feminist sisterhood, white women occupy the lowest possible rung and are constantly denounced for their privilege. White feminism is a slur. Why didn’t white women want to stick around in the intersectional sisterhood where they can be inferior to Muslim nonstraight transwomen and fight for their right to blow themselves up in the ladies’ room of a Target?
Maybe calling them names and blaming them for Hillary’s loss will help. The beatings will continue until intersectional morale improves. Next time around those uppity white women will know that they have to be part of the intersectional sisterhood or there will be even more namecalling and insults…(read more)
