New York Times Grudgingly Reports on Trump’s Diverse Base
Writing as though they had discovered a strange enclave of black Klansmen, the New York Times produced an article on Monday that grudgingly acknowledged a facet of Donald Trump’s support that the mainstream media has been loathe to admit: Not all of his fans are “angry white men.”
Though the reporter still writes as though it is a settled fact that Trump is a racist, the paper deserves some small amount of credit for running the piece at all. In it, they interview several Tampa Trumpers from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Supporters like Mireya Linksy, a Cuban immigrant who spends many of her nights volunteering for Trump’s campaign:
Mrs. Linsky, 55, understands that some may see certain contradictions in the fact that she is now spending several nights a week volunteering here at Donald J. Trump’s campaign office. “Like I’m just pulling the drawbridge up behind me,” she says.
Yet Mrs. Linsky is also quick to acknowledge a long list of racial fears and resentments that she says help explain why she is drawn to Mr. Trump: She is furious at undocumented workers who “come basically to see what they can get.” She is wary of Muslim Americans imposing their religion on communities in the United States. She is fearful of more American jobs being outsourced to China, India or Mexico.
Too bad this article didn’t come with undercover video inside the New York Times editorial office. It would be interesting to see how close they came to sticking this one on the tack. This is the great unreported truth of American politics, and it goes beyond Trump’s campaign. To the undying astonishment of the media and politicians in both parties, it isn’t just “racist” whites who want to see this country made strong again. And there are many, many immigrants who despise illegals who make a mockery of the hard work they had to go through to obtain citizenship. Many Muslims who hate terrorists and terrorist-sympathizers for turning Westerners against the religion. Many blacks who hate nothing more than the cretins who further the worst of the stereotypes.
Liberals want to keep this secret hidden as far from the spotlight as possible. Just look at how mercilessly they attacked Ben Carson when he topped the polls for a week or two last year. There’s nothing more dangerous to their narrative than conservative minorities. They treat them as traitors – Uncle Toms oppressing their fellow minorities for their own selfish aims. When they come across exit polls that show Trump leading his Republican contenders with Muslims and Hispanics, they are baffled and angry. What possible insanity could be leading these fools to vote against their own interests?
These people are too drenched in their own worldview to ever admit that there might be substantive reasons for minorities to vote for a guy like Trump; they will forever see them as hapless idiots misled by a charlatan. And that’s fine. In fact, it’s perfect. Because the further the Democratic Party descends down the rabbit-hole of socialism, the more voters they will leave behind. At the end of the day, most minorities want what most whites want: a chance to live the American dream. And no matter how blatantly the Democrats pander, intelligent Americans of every race, sex, and faith are beginning to realize that their policies are strangling that dream out of existence.
