The Americans who vote for Trump may not realize all the designs of their Deep State rulers, but they’re sick of the arrogance and condescension. From Patricia McCarthy at americanthinker.com:
The American left never for one moment accepted its loss in 2016. Leftists were shocked, enraged, apoplectic that Hillary Clinton, one of the most corrupt candidates in U.S. history, failed to extend their hold on the Marxist project to remake America in their Alinskyite/Stalinist vision.
It’s been a long-view enterprise that began with the racist Woodrow Wilson, but it took off in earnest when the radical leftists of the 1960s took over academia. They’ve won. Two generations of American students have been purposefully miseducated to believe that America is irredeemably racist, that the capitalism that has enabled the U.S. to become the most successful nation on the planet is evil, that socialism is better.
All these years later, the dream of MLK that character counted more than skin color has been blown into a million tiny pieces by the left’s dedication to identity politics. For the left, all Americans, for that matter all humans, are to be defined by their victim group — race and sex. All minorities, all women, all gay and trans persons are victims. Victims of whom and what? White supremacy, specifically white males. Asians and Jews are exempt from the victim category because they succeed at greater rates than the rest of us; they must be discriminated against by the social justice warriors. And they are.
The election of Donald Trump, particularly on the heels of the failed Obama administration, was a bridge too far for the intolerant, elitist left. How could this old white man have beaten their oh, so overrated Hillary? He won because a majority of Americans were and remain sick to death of the coastal elites’ contempt for them. They were and remain sick to death of their constant drive to remake society into their dreamscape of a tiered society, rather like India’s caste system, that categorizes people not by class, but by victim status.
