RIDICULING THE WHITE WORKING CLASS VOTER
RIDICULING THE WHITE WORKING CLASS VOTER — Comments from Crista Huff
I’ve been shocked to see liberals on Twitter aggressively ridiculing the “white working class voter”. Is this about the Twitter libs being bigoted against white people, or about them expressing class superiority, or about them hating Republicans and/or people who voted for President-elect Trump?
Were the libs previously embracing white working class voters because they needed their votes, and now they’re revealing their true colors?
No matter how you slice and dice it, it’s extremely bigoted behavior. Would these people go into a supermarket and ridicule the cashier? Would they stop by a roadside work area and ridicule the guy who’s holding the “STOP” sign? Would they drive up to a toll booth and ridicule the tolltaker? How about warehouse managers and assembly line workers and janitors?
What takes place in the mind of an American when they feel emboldened to express public disdain for vast segments of the population? Why is there no “gut check” telling them that such bigotry is wrong, and that vocalizing bigotry simply doubles down on their shameful impulses?
Are we, as a society, just a couple years away from more overt and individualized persecution?
