Trump won because his overt racism appealed to mainly rural whites who didn’t grow up with people of color and hence the natural human fear of the other. They hated to see a black president for 8 long years.
His campaign to ban Muslims to this country also appealed to minorities who are christians, Sikhs, Hindus and Jews because of their traditional enmity with Islamic forces. His bigotry appealed to them so much so they even turned a blind eye to his racism and sexism.
Democrats were sick and tired of Clinton emails, FBI and Clinton emails. So, many didn’t vote. Sure Clinton sucks but because you laughed at the idea of the lesser of the two evils, now deal with the worst of the two evils. Unlike Trump, Clinton is at least cosmopolitan in her outlook. Also she acknowledges the threat global warming or climate change poses to humans, animals and nature. How many more hurricanes are in store for us?
Many also didn’t vote because they believed Clinton was sure to win anyway. It was this overconfidence that proved fatal.
Media also falsely portrayed a landslide victory to Clinton and her supporters bought into it and the sense of urgency evaporated. Many of the Bernie supporters voted Trump because they felt Clinton cheated him out of the race even though he was the obvious winner between the two.
Hispanics did not support their own–the Mexicans and their champion Clinton because they failed to see orange Hitler coming. Now they too will pay the price because they belong to the same brackets that Trump is against.
Finally, change is the only permanent reality in this world where everything is ironically subject to the law of impermanence. Every 8 years, hopefully this time 4 years, people want a change in party in the government. That is primarily because the party fails to deliver its promises. The party in power for the most part fails to delivers its promises because the loser party in the congress opposes its every move to ensure its failure in the eyes of the voters. Also the need for change is forever set in the stone of our DNA.
Had Bernie fought he would have won that is if we go by the polls. He defeated both of them in every poll. But polls are conducted by mainly media and we can’t trust media anymore as it proved itself so wrong.
Well now what? Series of ugly things will happen. It’s happening. Mexico is harassed on the wall bill. 12 million undocumented minorities will be fucked. Trump with Putin will fuck the middle east even more. Minorities including blacks who have lived here for 400 years will be stopped and frisked in cities across US. Tax cuts for the super rich and the corporations. No minimum wage raise for the poor and many more.
The big question now is, what substantial changes can his voters expect from an orange hitler, seriously? Nothing but fear, anger, frustration, division, hate, racism, death and destruction not only in this country but around the world. His first target is Muslims of color, then illegal immigrants of color with criminal record, second target is illegal immigrants of color with no criminal record, DACA is under attack, then legal immigrants of color with green card, then immigrants of color with citizenship, the slavs, then Jews, Italians and Irish.
Nature hates power vacuum and when we refuse to vote for a minority of color or a liberal white whose general policy serves our interest best despite it being not as much as we wish, we unwittingly unleash the full wrath of nature on ourselves.
For example, we need Muslims and more of them so that the focus of the white man who dominates us politically, economically, militarily, or in any sections of the socioeconomic condition, remains directed on to, in this case, the Muslims and the rest of us minorities appear lesser of the two evils to them and life goes on not as bad as it would once Muslims are gone, then we become the worst of the two evils and we pay a heavy price. So it is in our own interest to support or vote for liberals, LGBTQ, pro choice, minority of color and religious minority no matter how fucked up they are, they are saints compared to the republican party that is exclusively a political party of, by and for the west European whites.
With his victory and the likes of him that has infested the republican party, the entire human species is now on the brink of extinction from
a) his total disregard for nature and therefore the eventual destruction of it to boost his bank account, and
b) nuclear war
NOKO Kim Jong Un is out of control and twitter presidency is the cause.
In 8 years people will be so sick and tired of all of this that they will vote for a democrat minority possibly Michelle or some young Asian Indian hoping he or she could save US from a WWIII. The drama of hope and change goes on.
O yes his personal fortune will rise from $4 billion to $30 billion in 8 years. It happened with Bloomberg whose networth was $4 billion when he entered NYC mayor office and when he left after 3 terms he was worth $27 billion and now worth $43 billion. But that’s about it. It doesn’t help the common man/woman.
If America belongs to whites because they invaded, and occupied this country by exterminating 90% of the native Americans to whom America or US actually belongs then it certainly belongs to immigrants of color who simply come here, to better their lives, without shedding a single drop of blood of the native Americans or the legal alien whites. This country and its resources belong to the whole world.
In the words of Thomas Paine in a peroration for freedom 240 years ago:
“O ye that love mankind! Ye that dare oppose not only the tyranny but the tyrant, stand forth! Every spot of the old world is overrun with oppression. Europe regards her ‘freedom’ like a stranger, and England hath given her warning to depart. O receive the fugitive, and prepare in time an asylum for mankind.”
Impact of internet and social media, with all its bombardment of info in general and negative campaign in particular from second to second on the users cannot be underestimated. It makes them susceptible to intense emotions and impulsive reactions.
The result is trump who is a pathological liar, ignorant, proud tax evader, egomaniac, bigot, sexist and overt racist is voted to be the 45th president. Deal with it.
Welcome to nazi America!
Hail to Trump!
Hail to the fuhrer!
WWIII is not far behind.
