As a long-time subscriber to The New York Times, which is the best American paper for international news, I am accustomed to the left-wing tilt of its editorial pages. But the Times and the coastal elite it represents are so terrified by the possibility of a Trump presidency (read: an anti-establishment presidency) that the front page now drips vitriol like a broken Keurig. There is no pretense of objectivity; it reads as if it is edited in Pyongyang.
A case in point is July 31st’s top left-hand column. The title is, “Trump Belittles Muslim Mother of Dead Soldier”. That title alone is worthy of Hearst at his worst. If you keep reading, you quickly see the headline is a lie. According to the Times story, what Trump actually said, after calling his Islamic critic a “nice guy” and wishing him “the best of luck,” was
If you look at his wife, she was standing there, she had nothing to say, she probably–maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say, you tell me.
Trump’s point, that under Islam women are to keep silent and serve men, is true. Islam makes all women and “unbelievers” not second-class citizens, but tenth-class citizens. A man has every right to beat his wife, and can get rid of her merely by saying “I divorce you” three times. There’s no alimony.
It’s funny watching politically correct women defend Islam when Islam is their worst enemy on Earth. There is no feminism under Islam, and any woman who announces she is a feminist is marked for murder. The cultural Marxists are so warped by their ideology that they embrace their murderers.
All the piling-on we see from the Left boils down to one charge: Trump dares to defy the rules set down by political correctness, i.e., cultural Marxism. Political correctness will allow itself to be criticized, mildly, but it permits no defiance.
So how does Trump win? By continuing to defy political correctness. His base, which by this point may be a majority of White voters, loves it. Cultural Marxism labels all Whites as evil, not for what they do, but because they are White (the term is “white privilege”). Whites are the equivalent of the bourgeoisie and capitalists under the old economic Marxism: they must be liquidated because of who they are, not what they do. There is no escape. Even if you spend all day groveling in the dirt apologizing for being White–an act required on many campuses–you remain evil.
Cultural Marxism’s goal is to “privilege” all other races and ethnic groups over Whites, women over men, and gays over straights. That is what Trump is defying when he breaks the rules of Political Correctness. The more he does it, the higher he rises in the polls. Whites, males, and straights are fed up.
The greatest danger Trump faces is listening to the “professionals” from the Establishment Republican Party. For decades, the Republican Party has tried to please its enemies and treated its friends with contempt, the poor ones anyway. It wants Trump to do just that. If he does, he will lose his base and be defeated.
Despite all the talk about demographics, Trump’s base–Whites, males, and straights–remains a large majority (that base includes non- and anti-feminist women). If he keeps it, solidifies it, and motivates it, he will win. Hillary could end up carrying four states: Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, and Hawaii.
If that happens, the Times headline announcing Trump’s victory will probably be written in blood.
