“This may well be the beginning of the end”. That’s the opening statement from Charles Blow at the New York Times in a November 21st Op-Ed. The title of the article is “Trump: Making America White Again”. Blow’s argument centers on Trump’s cabinet picks and how that makes America patriarchal, white, racist, and misogynistic.
Of course, Blow’s timing wasn’t great. Since labeling Trump a racist misogynist, Trump has picked three women for his cabinet including Elaine Chao, an Asian American immigrant.
Blow’s charges of racism, sexism, and so on are standard Liberal fare. To be sure, Trump and Bannon have had many issues with saying blatantly sexist stuff, and Trump may have even done some things that were almost as bad as what Democrat favorite Bill Clinton did back in the day. But as far as Trump’s “orange glow” being the sun setting on America, not quite.
Even Blow’s evidence for AG pick Jeff Session’s apparent blatant racism comes from dubious sources. Blow cites the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is a radical Leftist group that labels all things Conservative as racist, bigoted and homophobic, yet is still considered a valid source by Liberals. What is even funnier is SPLC’s actual statement, which considers Sessions to be a racist because he opposes illegal immigration.
SPLC considers opposition to illegal immigration and sanctuary cities to be akin to white supremacy and eugenics. Of course, that’s rich coming from a party that is pro-abortion. Abortion rates among minority groups occur at alarmingly high rates.
Trump is not creating the white male utopia that Blow fears. If anything, Trump is focusing on middle class workers who are a large percentage white. They’ve been ignored for a while, which created one of the demographic shifts in this election. The other major demographic shift was that Hillary Clinton received the lowest share of the black vote in 20 years.
Every year some whacko group predicts the end of the world. A few years ago it was the end because the Mayan calendar had run out. Harold Camping predicted the end of the world 12 times. This year, it’s the New York Times.
