Elites’ contempt for America’s white middle class

In early March 2016, three months before the last Republican Party primary elections that sealed Trump’s ascendancy as the party’s presidential nominee, Politico Magazine contributing editor Michael Lind called Trump “the Perfect Populist”—”one with broader appeal to the right and the center than his predecessors in recent American political history—so much so it could put him in the White House”.

Lind was unusual among pundits in predicting Trump’s electoral victory, as according to polling data he did not have even an outside chance of winning. What catapulted Trump to the White House, to the enduring shock and disbelief of the Democratic Party, was his message of what Victor Davis Hanson in his book The Case for Trump identified as “middle-class populism”—a populism of “less government, doubt over overseas military commitments, fears of redistribution and globalization, and distrust of cultural elites.” Their distrust, Hanson maintains, fundamentally was a reaction, not a catalyst, to the elites’ contempt for the white middle class:

[S]corn for the white middle class . . . was widespread among many elites, and it ignited a Trump backlash . . . . The anger that Trump tapped had been a long time in coming. But few politicians knew it firsthand, much less saw it as merited or even useful in the political sense . . . . [Trump] had seen a critical preexisting and vast swath of potential voters in proverbial swing states who were . . . resentful over the disdain shown them by elites, especially the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. And they were irate at the winners of globalization who had somehow blamed them for being the global economy’s losers.

In other words, the elites’ contempt for the white middle and working classes predated the 2016 election.

Except in the cases of Obama and Hillary Clinton, the following account of contemptuous elites are from Hanson’s The Case for Trump.

To begin, eight years before the 2016 election, at a fundraising event in San Francisco on April 6, 2008, presidential hopeful Barack Obama condescendingly dismissed working-class voters in old industrial towns decimated by job losses as “bitter” people who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

For her part, at an LGBT fundraiser in Manhattan on September 9, 2016, Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton urged supporters to “stage an intervention” if they had friends who might vote Trump. She then dissed millions of Americans over whom she intended to rule as president. Clinton said, “you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables’. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.” After she lost the election to Trump and the “deplorables,” in a public speech in Mumbai, India on March 10, 2018, Clinton redoubled her contempt for Trump voters. She said, “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward,” thereby implying that the 63 million Americans who had voted for Trump were demoralized, monotonous, listless, and degenerating.

Hillary Clinton’s aides were just as dismissive. In her book Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling, New York Times reporter Amy Chozick described how Clinton’s inner circle looked down on Trump voters as fodder for their amusement: “The Deplorables always got a laugh, over living-room chats in the Hamptons, at dinner parties under the stars on Martha’s Vineyard, over passed hors d’oeuvres in Beverly Hills, and during sunset cocktails in Silicon Valley.”

Elites less prominent than Obama and Clinton similarly were contemptuous of Trump supporters. As examples, on August 12, 2016, FBI agent Peter Strzok texted to his paramour Lisa Page (both are married) that Trump voters stank: “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support.” Another unidentified FBI employee texted an FBI attorney on the day after the 2016 election that “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS [pieces of sh*t].”

In a tweet on January 7, 2017, Melinda Byerley, founder of the Silicon Valley company Timeshare CMO, wrote: “One thing middle America could do is to realize that no educated person wants to live in a sh**hole with stupid people. Especially violent, racist, and/or misogynistic ones . . . . When corporations think about where to locate call centers, factories, development centers, etc., they also have to deal with the fact that those towns have nothing going for them. No infrastructure, just a few bars and a terrible school system.”

Some members of the media were just as disdainful. In a tweet on August 2018, Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked the crowd at a Trump rally as toothless hicks: “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.” Although Caputo initialy apologized for and deleted the tweet, he later doubled down, calling Trump supporters “garbage people.”

Another journalist, tech writer and member of the New York Times’s editorial board Sarah Jeong, a graduate of Harvard Law School who is of Korean heritage, tweeted: “Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins?”; “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men”; and “White people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.”

Hillary Clinton wasn’t the only politician who regarded Trump voters with unconcealed contempt. On September 15, 2018, during a speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner in Washington, D.C., former Vice President Joe Biden called the deplorables “virulent” “dregs of society”. He said: “Despite losing in the courts, and in the court of opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made. This time they—not you—have an ally in the White House. This time they have an ally. They’re a small percentage of the American people—virulent people, some of them the dregs of society.” Hanson points out that those “dregs of society” in 2016 numbered 63 million—46% of all Americans who voted.

Nor were Progressives the only elites who held the white middle and working classes in contempt. Republican “never Trumpers” were equally derisive.

In a March 2016 op-ed, National Review’s conservative social critic Kevin Williamson wrote: “The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible . . . . The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles.”

On February 8, 2017, on a panel at the American Enterprise Institute, Bill Kristol, founder of the Weekly Standard, said white, working-class Americans should be replaced by immigrants. Kristol said:

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in? Basically if you are in free society, a capitalist society, after two, three, four generations of hard work, everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled, whatever. Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed, and really want their kids to live better lives than them, and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and, meanwhile, grew up as spoiled kids and so forth.”

Another “never Trumper” conservative who became a self-described “man without a party” after the 2016 election, expressed the same wish. In a June 18, 2018 op-ed, Washington Post columnist Max Boot wrote: “If only we could keep the hard-working Latin American newcomers and deport the contemptible Republican cowards—that would truly enhance America’s greatness.”

For his part, New York Times conservative columnist David Brooks, with the ragged teeth, echoed the same sentiments in a January 29, 2018 op-ed: “These rural places are often 95 percent white . . . . They are often marked by economic stagnation, social isolation, family breakdown and high opioid addiction . . . . It is a blunt fact of life that, these days, immigrants show more of these virtues than the native-born.”

Hanson points out that these Progressive and conservative “never Trump” elites not only are racist, they are hypocrites. Conveniently, the elites excused their crude stereotyping of white, middle America by insisting that racism against whites was not racism. While accusing the middle and working classes they deride for “white privilege,” the elites are blind to their own outsized privileges. In Hanson’s words:

Often the white elite signaled their disgust of the ‘white privilege’ of the disintegrating middle class as a means of exempting their own quite genuine white privilege of insider contacts, professional degrees, wealth, inheritance, and influence.

I am baffled by why the elites hold such virulent hatred and contempt for America’s white middle and working classes who have built this country. It is a phenomenon for psychiatric professionals to explain. Alas, being of the same privileged professional elite class, they probably are infected with the same virus.

Perhaps our readers can hazard some guesses to explain this phenomenon.

Pedophile Joe Biden calls Trump supporters ‘dregs of society’

The Cambridge Dictionary defines:

  • deplorable” as very bad; its synonyms include abominable, abysmal, ghastly, putrid, and repulsive.
  • virulent” as dangerous, poisonous, hateful and violent.
  • dregs of society” as the part of something that is considered unimportant and unwanted.

During the 2016 presidential campaign on September 9, 2016, although she means to rule over us as POTUS, Hillary Clinton contemptuously called millions of Americans “basket of deplorables”.

That’s arrogance that’s so off-the-scale, it’s Luciferian.

Last Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, the former Vice President of the United States of America publicly called millions of Americans “virulent people” and “dregs of society”.

Biden made those remarks in his speech at the annual Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington, D.C., September 15, 2018.

Human Rights Campaign is the largest LGBT civil rights advocacy group and political lobbying organization in the United States.

To an enthusiastic crowd of advocates of LGBTQ rights, Biden attacked the millions of Americans who support President Trump, accusing them of “intolerance” and committing a “crime” of prejudice by using religion or culture as a “license to discriminate”.

Biden said (beginning at the 38:23 mark in the CSPAN video):

“We face an administration and some of its most ardent right-wing supporters from the Ku Klux Klan…and the Alt Right are trying to undo all the progress you have made, that Barack [Obama] and I have made for you….

Using religion or culture as a license to discriminate demonize the community, individuals, to score political points is no more justifiable around the world than it is at home and our policies should reflect that. [Cheers and applause]

But despite losing in the courts and in the court of public opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made. This time they — not you — have an ally in the White House. They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people, some of them the dregs of society. And instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal, literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none.”

Petition to name next Navy ship 'USS The Deplorables'

On September 10, 2016, her mask slipping, Hillary Clinton actually called millions of Americans, over whom she wants to rule as president, “a basket of deplorables” whom she characterized as “irredeemable” racists, homophobes and jingoists because they deign to support her opponent, Donald Trump.

Those whom Queen Hillary maligned immediately took “Deplorable” as a badge of honor.
Now, there is a petition on WhiteHouse.gov to name the next major U.S. Navy ship “USS The Deplorables”!
The petition was begun by D.S. “To honor those citizens who rose up to defend America and The Constitution from the globalists.”
Only 2 days old, the petition has gathered only 162 signatures but needs another 99,838 to make the goal of 100,000 signatures by January 3, 2017.

Make this happen!

Revolt of the Deplorables: Clinton & Ryan heckled; Trump cheered

On September 10, 2016, her mask slipping, Hillary Clinton actually called millions of Americans, over whom she wants to rule as president, “a basket of deplorables” who are “irredeemable” racists, homophobes and jingoists because they deign to support her opponent, Donald Trump.
hillary-clinton-screams-why-arent-i-50-points-ahead
On October 7, 2016, an audio of Trump making lewd remarks of a married woman 11 years ago, was leaked to the media. Trump made those crude remarks in a supposedly private conversation with the weasel-faced Billy Bush, a correspondent for the trashy TV show, Access Hollywood. Coincidentally (or not), Billy Bush is the nephew of former president George H.W. Bush, who reportedly has said he will vote for Hillary Clinton.
The audio immediately was seized on by the MSM, who no longer even pretend to conceal their pro-Hillary stance. Never mind that their lord and savior, Barack Obama, had PUBLICLY talked about “eating p*ssy,” and their ball-busting mistress, Hillary Clinton, spews cruder and lewder obscenities to the faces of the Secret Service agents who risk their lives to protect her.

See “Obama, in a fake black accent, talked about ‘eating p*ssy’; Hillary spews obscenities at Secret Service agents

Being the eunuchs that they are, GOP elites almost soiled their pants. John McCain withdrew his endorsement of Trump, as the #NeverTrump RINOs bleat that, with only a month before the November 8 election, Trump must drop out of the presidential race.
Not being stupid, the Deplorables, aka the American people, see right through this faux scandal and the faux outrage of the MSM and RINOs. As an anonymous Facebook post says:

“We don’t care if the guy swears… or how many times he’s been married…or who he voted for, or what his income tax return shows. We want the problems fixed. Yes he’s an egomaniac, but we don’t care.[…]
We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he has changed positions, we don’t care that he fights with Megyn Kelly, Rosie O’Donnell, and so many of the elected establishment. We don’t care that Rubio, Ryan, the Bushes, and so many other top old and new Republicans refuse to endorse him for their own selfish reasons, and we know what they are. […]
We’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic and Republican Party. […] Americans are no longer going to be fooled, and the movement is out to change the direction we’re taking. […] This may be our only chance to have a non-politician, despite his flaws, try and correct the mess, at least for 4 years. We must take the shot, because the consequences of putting Hillary Clinton in office are frightening.”

See “Why Trump supporters don’t care that he made a lewd remark about a married woman 11 years ago“.
Yesterday, (Saturday, Oct. 8), the Deplorables revolted and made their voices heard.
At his Fall Fest event in Elkhorn,Wisconsin, RINO House Speaker Paul Ryan kicked off his speech by making mention of the “elephant in the room,” and called Trump’s locker-room banter with Billy Bush “a troubling situation.”
The crowd of Deplorables responded by heckling Ryan with chants of “Trump!,” “God bless Trump,” and “See ya, Paul! Jackass!”. (Breitbart)

Also yesterday, while campaigning for Hillary in an early voting event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Bill Clinton was heckled by protesters shouting,

“Bill Clinton is a rapist!”

In the midst of criticizing Trump’s position on global warming, Clinton was notably jarred when he was interrupted by two individuals in the audience, one of whom carried a Bill Clinton Rape poster.
As Clinton began a sentence saying, “No one can dispute the fact…,” a person in the audience shouts, “That you’re a rapist!,” followed by another yelling, “Bill Clinton is a rapist!”
This is the second time in 3 days that Bill Clinton has been heckled during a rally for Hillary. Earlier this week during a campaign event in Canton, Ohio, a woman interrupted the former president by shouting, “Bill Clinton is a rapist!”. The woman was holding a display also bearing those words. (InfoWars)

Meanwhile, a large and raucous crowd of Trump supporters rallied outside of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan on Saturday afternoon. The crowd was so big that people spilled from the sidewalk into the street, with only a metal security barrier keeping them from the Fifth Avenue traffic.
trump-supporters-outside-trump-tower-oct-8-2016
Even the NYPD shouted their support:
trump-supporters-outside-trump-tower-10-8-2016
While in Bakersfield, California, at the Bakersfield Business Conference, thousands of people cheered for Trump to stay in the race.
Jim Stinson of PoliZette observes:

“The response from the [conference] attendees, mostly conservative voters, shows a potentially large disconnect between ordinary Americans and elites on the issue of Trump’s character revelations. Many in the media and political leaders have said Trump should leave the ticket after disclosure of lewd talk on a bus 11 years ago. […] But so far, the voters don’t seem moved.”

According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted yesterday, a remarkable number of people had heard about the leaked audio of Trump’s lewd remarks. There is also an equally remarkable polarization:

  • Overall, 45% think Trump should not drop out of the presidential race, while 39% think he should.
  • 70% of Democrats say Trump should end his campaign, but just 12% of Republicans — and 13% of female Republicans — agree.

110 'Star Trek' Hollyweirdos endorse Hillary Clinton for President

110 people in the “entertainment industry” who are or had been involved in Star Trek movies and TV shows have come out on Facebook, declaring they’ll vote for a law-breaker, pathological liar, heartless woman who left 4 Americans — including two members of her own staff — to die in Benghazi, and a woman who wants to be President of the United States but insults and derides at least half of the population as “deplorables” and losers who still “live in their parents’ basements“.
hillary-clintons-supporters
This is the 110 Hollyweirdos’ declaration on a Facebook page, “Trek Against Trump“:

September 29, 2016
Star Trek has always offered a positive vision of the future, a vision of hope and optimism, and most importantly, a vision of inclusion, where people of all races are accorded equal respect and dignity, where individual beliefs and lifestyles are respected so long as they pose no threat to others. We cannot turn our backs on what is happening in the upcoming election. Never has there been a presidential candidate who stands in such complete opposition to the ideals of the Star Trek universe as Donald Trump. His election would take this country backward, perhaps disastrously. We need to elect a president who will move this country forward into the kind of future we all dream of: where personal differences are understood and accepted, where science overrules superstition, where people work together instead of against each other.
The resolution of conflicts on Star Trek was never easy. Don’t remain aloof –vote! We have heard people say they will vote Green or Libertarian or not at all because the two major candidates are equally flawed. That is both illogical and inaccurate. Either Secretary Clinton or Mr. Trump will occupy the White House. One is an amateur with a contemptuous ignorance of national laws and international realities, while the other has devoted her life to public service, and has deep and valuable experience with the proven ability to work with Congress to pass desperately needed legislation [… who] will someday lead us to the stars.

Blah, blah, blah.
The declaration is “endorsed by” the following 110 individuals. I’ve identified the names I recognize:

  1. J.J. Abrams, director of Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), and other movies, including the Star Wars reboot. On October 10, 2015, Abrams hosted a “$33,400 a ticket” fundraiser in his home for the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, in which Obama talked “passionately” about the need for gun control. The fundraiser raised over $750,000. (Breitbart).

Clinton: Half of Trump’s supporters are a ‘basket of deplorables’

From NY Post: Hillary Clinton said Friday night that half of the supporters for her rival Donald Trump are a “basket of deplorables.”

Clinton made the remarks at an LGBT fundraiser in Manhattan and urged supporters to “stage an intervention” if they have friends who might vote Trump.

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables,’” Clinton said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.”

Clinton also charged that Trump has “given voice” to white nationalist and anti-Semitic ideas by re-tweeting their “rhetoric.’’

The Trump campaign said that with the remarks Clinton “revealed her true contempt for everyday Americans.”

hillary-clinton-winking-AP-640x480

Of course, Hillary is now backtracking on that statement. The hashtag #basketofdeplorables was trending yesterday on Twitter. So Hillary had to reply. From MSN:

“Clinton’s aides defended her efforts to define a significant chunk of Trump’s supporters as out of step with American values, and the candidate issued a statement Saturday afternoon saying she regretted using the word “half” to describe those supporters.

“That was wrong,” Clinton said. “But let’s be clear, what’s really ‘deplorable’ is that Donald Trump hired a major advocate for the so-called ‘alt-right’ movement to run his campaign and that David Duke and other white supremacists see him as a champion of their values.”

In her remarks at the fundraiser, Clinton also called for empathy for the other “half” of Trump’s supporters.

“That other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they’re just desperate for change,” Clinton said. “It doesn’t really even matter where it comes from.

“They don’t buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different — they won’t wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they’re in a dead end,” she continued. “Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well.”
