Saying to someone “vote for Hillary, you racist, misogynist, transphobic, homophobic bigot!” isn’t going to convince people…
When Hillary’s supporters play the identity politics game we’ve seen constantly played since 2008 (and to some extent before that), is it no surprise that Trump has the support he does? People are sick of the identity politics, especially when it’s played in complete contradiction of facts!
Many point out that Trump has a lot of support from whites. And the reason is because Trump isn’t telling them that they’re responsible for all the world’s ills. Hillary’s supporters and the social justice warriors that make up the bulk of her most vocal supporters and surrogates constantly tell me and people like me that we’re “the problem”. If only I’d just renounce my cisgender hetero-normative straight white male upper-middle class “privilege” — all the while having to dodge being constantly called racist, misogynist, transphobic, homophobic, and classist….
And you wonder why they support Trump?
Cracked actually did an article that outlines in quite stark contrast why many support Trump, even if they don’t think he’s the best thing since sliced bread. It starts by pointing out that Democrat support is actually quite concentrated in a relatively small land area compared to Republican support. Those people living in largely rural areas and small towns don’t like being told by urban elites in their ivory towers how to live. They don’t like those urban elites and arrogant SJW jackasses looking down their noses at them while telling them that they’re “the problem”, that they’re all racists and homophobes when mostly people out in those small towns and rural areas couldn’t care less about your race or sexual orientation so long as they don’t have to keep hearing about it all the time.
And they support Trump because Trump seems like he’ll actually direct some relief toward the rural areas that’ve been hit the hardest since the 2008 recession and have yet to see any meaningful recovery, rather than being blamed for everything that’s wrong in the United States.
