Can You Hear Us Now?
In the recent 2016 Elections, President-Elect Donald Trump won in slightly over 2600 counties whereas Hillary Clinton won in slightly less than 500 counties. Mr. Trump carried over 80% of the geographic area of the United States of America, representing an extremely broad base of local constituencies, whereas Hillary succeeded only in highly-populous, urban zones of America.
Of much greater import, however, is that of the 3,112 counties for which there is county-level data, 2,728 shifted toward the GOP, whereas only 383 shifted towards Democrats. Trump even made stunning inroads in the Northeast, normally considered a staunchly Democrat bastion.
With all this having so shockingly happened, does anyone think that the Liberals, Progressives, and the “demographics” that normally vote Democrat will hear us now? I truly and sincerely hope that no American this that they will do so? Such a hope or belief, being false, is doomed to disappointment and would make the believer even more vulnerable to their attacks.
Believe either me or the plethora of evidence at one’s disposal. Our domestic enemies – and that is what they are – have heard us; they have, I believe always heard us. They simple fail to actually listen because they believe what we say is inherently racist, sexist, xenophobic, and nationalist – as if the last was a bad thing. They claim we’re “White Supremacists” just because we’re White and the culture we built here by definition works here better than other cultures do.
So, irrespective of Mr. Trump’s triumph in the recent elections and the shock it gave certain sorts, it’s not a cure-all. It’s not a matter of the Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenants finally hearing us. It’s a matter of whether or not they reevaluate their lexicon and core ideologies in the face the election results – and we all know that is just not going to happen anymore than a patriotic American is suddenly going to convert to their would-be nation’s doctrine.
