You know who you are.
For years now, the billionaire and millionaire elites who control academia, the mainstream media, politics, popular culture, and the sports world have put you, conservative or Trump supporters in a box. You know, you are a racist deplorable and should be purged from polite society.
These are the same folks that have immortalized Michael Brown, George Floyd, Jacob Blake, Rayshard Brooks, Eric Garner, and other resisting criminal suspects.
They also worked to raise bail money for protesters willing to riot, loot, burn, and vandalize your homes and businesses in the name of racial justice.
So while those on the left, especially in the leftist media have been clutching pearls over the Bastille storming on Wednesday, where a few windows were broken and the furniture rearranged, I understand it. I get it.
I said last week in the podcast that the country was a powder keg, ready to explode.
You cannot ignore the desires, concerns of 74 million citizens. You can’t write them off as Nazis and answer all their complaints with allegations of racism or sexism.
President Trump had a lot to do with the violence the happened Wednesday, and he knows it–but he hardly gets all the blame. Let’s not forget the major and cable news and sports networks, the players in the NFL and NBA. Don’t forget about the people in Hollywood, at Netflix, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
These same people sanctioned, financed, and promoted political violence throughout all of 2020 and for much of the past decade.
Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg know this. That’s why they rushed to silence Trump on their respective platforms, Twitter and Facebook.
We know the effort to paint Trump supporters as racist deplorables is all crap.
Skin color does not explain why people were passionate about Trump. Trump understood his supporters, understood their rejection of the elitism and secularism pervasive in modern, metropolitan American. Mainly, he did not hate them the way liberal America does.
If Trumpism is anything, it is the call of the working class who believe the Big Tech billionaires and liberal elites are building an America that cuts them out of the American Dream. Trumpism is the cry of Americans who value authenticity over the fraudulence of social politics. Blacks and minorities of the working have just as much at stake here as to any whites.
Ignore the deplorables at your peril.
