From Slate:

How Trump Sucks Up to Minorities
By scaring them about other minorities.

By William Saletan

Donald Trump says he loves minorities. “Nothing means more to me than working to make our party the home of the African-American vote,” he told a white crowd in Iowa over the weekend. As evidence, he cited “what’s been happening over the last two weeks and three weeks with me”—a series of speeches in which Trump, according to himself, has been reaching out to blacks and Hispanics.

I’ve watched these speeches. They’re a perfect encapsulation of who Trump is. While mouthing platitudes about inclusiveness, he systematically courts certain minorities—or, rather, courts white voters who are skittish about supporting a racist—by pledging to protect them from other minorities. Even when he poses as the candidate of love and unity, Trump reveals himself as the candidate of hostility and division.

In contrast, a good, moral white person like Hillary unites all minorities by telling them to hate white people.

Sure, black, Hispanics, Chinese, Hindus, Muslims, and American Indians might not have much in common, but they can all unite around hating white people.

Fearing and loathing white people is the KKKrazy Glue that holds together the Democrats’ Coalition of the Fringes.

But of course Hillary is a white person, so she doesn’t mean white people, she means white men.

Actually, let’s refine it to straight white men. Sure, a Muslim murdered 49 gays in Orlando in June, but, really, when you think about it, it was caused by straight white men.

And if they wear dresses, they’re on the good team too.

Really, what we are talking about are cisgender straight white male swimmers like Brock Turner, Ryan Lochte, and Haven Monahan.

  1. The irony of this is that the Democratic Party exists specifically as a coalition-of-the-fringes party. So how dare Trump try to splinter off one of the fringes?

  2. Gee, Steve, with counter-analysis like yours, you’re making it highly unlikely that you’ll ever sell a piece to Slate!

  3. Donald Trump = the Haven Monahan candidate

  4. Once again, one’s man’s indictment is another’s manifesto.

    Saletan’s piece starts to take on a tone of “No faiiiiir, he’s fighting baaaaack…!”

    White men who adhere to Christian beliefs/practices are maybe 10 percent of the whole population. Almost a fringe in themselves.

    Atheists/irreligious people as part of the coalition of the fringes is so 2003.

    The fringe doesn't need them anymore.

    Right now liberals are probably trying to figure out how to bring deeply religious types on board, actually. They have a better shot pulling in religious white men like David French than normal white guys.

  14. Saletan’s the guy who had the smart spanked out of him for daring to gently try out the truth about race and intelligence over at Slate about 4 years ago.

    That is the real fear of the MSM. They know Trump can win if he gets enough white votes in the critical states. And the best means of preventing him from getting those voters is for them to be cowed into voting against Trump because of his supposed racism.

    So when Trump speaks fondly about blacks and seems genuinely concerned about their economic plight and safety concerns, he lets those skittish whites become comfortable with him.

    It’s really a good move on his part.

  18. Fearing and loathing white people is the KKKrazy Glue that holds together the Democrats’ Coalition of the Fringes.

    This is better rhetoric–and certainly more accurate–than grievances. But would the ADL or SPLC use it? They would probably go with some firm of “hate” or -ism. Something to consider.

  19. Is there ever a case where the majority requires protection from the minority? Besides the parking lot at Yankee stadium. As in an actual society; is there ever a case where the minority screws the majority? Can ya think of any cases like that? Jeez I can. So maybe the idea that minorities are always victims is… not correct. Minorites are often pretty good victimizers.

    The case of the Orange County Lawyer woman who graduated from Boalt Hall at Berkeley, and her uber-lawyer husband who made over $400K a year, who planted drugs on some working class White woman in Irvine over a petty grudge is instructive. Upper Class women are descended from women who for over a thousand years bossed people around running estates, manors, etc. Now they have nothing to do and it eats at them; raising grudges to hate hate hates.

    No.

    There are three groups of people hurt by competition fro illegal aliens:

    1.Black citizens who are predominantly low-wage. Hispanics can do their jobs and are often more reliable.

    2. Young white, black and Hispanic Americans who do not have the smarts to compete on Wall Street or in the Streets of San Francisco or San Jose. These people used to be able to get low-wage entry-level jobs but those are now tied down by illegals. These Americans can no longer gain an entry in the workforce and will become long-term unemployed people.

    3. Hispanics, who find the competition from illegal Hispanics to hurt them a lot as well, but since a lot of them were illegals who got amnesty, I don't have much sympathy.

    Let's add a couple more groups, which overlap with the ones you mentioned.

    1) Teenagers used to get entry level jobs to help build their work experience. Immigrants, both legal and legal, hurt their chances here.

    2) Ex-cons used to come out of prison and get jobs like roofing. I am not talking about violent felons. I am talking about guys who did time for non-violent offenses. If they can't get jobs, it might cause them to go back to crime to pay the bills.

    , @AnotherDad
    @The most deplorable one

    Agree those groups are hit--and basically it's *all* working class Americans.

    One can argue that in terms of its overall history, blacks as a group have been hurt the worst by the whole program of mass immigration. Opening the labor market to the world means that there is pretty much always someone who can do the job for less, with less trouble than the local unskilled black population. Essentially they've been turned into clients of the state--supported by government employment, "discrimination" lawsuit prophylactic hiring and welfare.

    My point though is that because legal Hispanics have the closest skill match to the new illegal arrivals coming in they are the ones most directly in competition ergo most directly affected today. This is especially true, because the illegals tend to settle in the existing Hispanic neighborhoods so are directly competing in the same labor markets.

    3. Hispanics, who find the competition from illegal Hispanics to hurt them a lot as well, but since a lot of them were illegals who got amnesty, I don't have much sympathy.

    I am not sure that I have the order of 1 and 2 correct.

    Let’s add a couple more groups, which overlap with the ones you mentioned.

    1) Teenagers used to get entry level jobs to help build their work experience. Immigrants, both legal and legal, hurt their chances here.

    2) Ex-cons used to come out of prison and get jobs like roofing. I am not talking about violent felons. I am talking about guys who did time for non-violent offenses. If they can’t get jobs, it might cause them to go back to crime to pay the bills.

    But from a policy perspective pretty darn obviously the people most hurt by competition from illegal aliens are “Hispanic” Americans. It’s hard to see how Trump’s policy proposals around immigration are the least bit “racist” against Hispanics.
     
    No.

    There are three groups of people hurt by competition fro illegal aliens:

    1.Black citizens who are predominantly low-wage. Hispanics can do their jobs and are often more reliable.

    2. Young white, black and Hispanic Americans who do not have the smarts to compete on Wall Street or in the Streets of San Francisco or San Jose. These people used to be able to get low-wage entry-level jobs but those are now tied down by illegals. These Americans can no longer gain an entry in the workforce and will become long-term unemployed people.

    3. Hispanics, who find the competition from illegal Hispanics to hurt them a lot as well, but since a lot of them were illegals who got amnesty, I don't have much sympathy.

    Agree those groups are hit–and basically it’s *all* working class Americans.

    One can argue that in terms of its overall history, blacks as a group have been hurt the worst by the whole program of mass immigration. Opening the labor market to the world means that there is pretty much always someone who can do the job for less, with less trouble than the local unskilled black population. Essentially they’ve been turned into clients of the state–supported by government employment, “discrimination” lawsuit prophylactic hiring and welfare.

    My point though is that because legal Hispanics have the closest skill match to the new illegal arrivals coming in they are the ones most directly in competition ergo most directly affected today. This is especially true, because the illegals tend to settle in the existing Hispanic neighborhoods so are directly competing in the same labor markets.

    It's not going to work though. Blacks assume, probably rightly, that if you're "racist" against Hispanics and Muslims, you're probably "racist" against them too, since blacks have the worst qualities of any race.

    That's why Trump is doing even worse than Republicans usually do among blacks.

    This highlights the Zeno’s paradox of race relations: we must always do more for the aggrieved, and any step away from increased sympathy is just way too far.

    The real essence of the ‘coalition of the fringes’ or ‘Totem Pole, what have you, is ‘looting’ and ‘goodies’ To very very simple concepts that have strong appeal to the Katrina-like mind.

    Or, to put it another way, it’s ‘Willie Sutton’s law’ – “that’s where the money is”.

    The implicit assumption – even from mega-rich corporate whores like the Hildebeast – is that if you simply nod and wink at that great big storehouse of ‘wealth, power etc’ that belongs to ( an unworthy)’ someone else’, that is white males, then that there’s incentive enough to get the combined ‘minority’ (this includes white women) on your side.

    It really is as low, simple and animalistic as that. There is no need for further elaboration. It’s like the hyena guiding the vulture.

    Huh?

    White men who adhere to Christian beliefs/practices are maybe 10 percent of the whole population. Almost a fringe in themselves.

    Atheists/irreligious people as part of the coalition of the fringes is so 2003.

    The fringe doesn’t need them anymore.

    Right now liberals are probably trying to figure out how to bring deeply religious types on board, actually. They have a better shot pulling in religious white men like David French than normal white guys.
