Yeah, very “JOOOOOO!!!!!”-y comments incoming…
Anyway, this column is really me shitting on a few popular post-election talking points, so your mileage may vary:
Even leftist heroes like Michael Moore and Jon Stewart have scolded their comrades for pushing the “Trump voters are all racists” meme. Both men express incredulity that citizens in the roughly 200 counties that voted for Obama twice suddenly turned “racist” this year. Conservatives are expressing “strange new respect” for both men.
But I can’t help thinking:
What if they actually did?
I mean: What if eight years of Obama’s affirmative-action incompetence, arrogance, and antiwhite animus turned some formerly color-blind Americans racist?
We’ve all noticed that black vs. white racial animus has increased dramatically during the reign of the great “healer” Barack. So why can’t we take this observation to its logical conclusion and admit that antiblack feelings must have increased too, and that this was surely reflected in votes for Trump? (Or, more accurately, against Black Lives Matter enabler Hillary Clinton.)
I didn’t say “celebrating.” I said “admitting.”
