Yes, the WaPo reports that Trump said, correctly, I may add, Trump says blacks who stayed home were ‘almost as good’ as those who voted for him.
The “big league” fact ignored by the WaPo in the statistics it included with the article is that, per official reports, 98% of black women voted for Hillary Clinton. The political significance of that fact should be as clear to see as the sun on a cloudless sky; but I know it isn’t to many folks.
Don’t blame them for missing the huge point; the media, MSM and leftists alike, succeeded in keeping most people blind to their stealthy war against women during the elections. They would never ask this question in that article or any:
Who were the “blacks” who stayed at home or voted for Trump? The numbers tell you it was male black voters.
I propose to you that that answer would have being a ground-shaking event.
It would have forced open the door to the discussion about misogyny and anti-feminism in the presidential campaign. And we all know that violence against half the world’s population can NEVER become the main issue in any struggle for political power. It must, per tradition, be relegated to the last-before-animals-rights list of things to take care of.
I’ll even go Kamakaze on you: I propose, and intent to prove in an upcoming post, that this presidential election cycle was a battle against a feminist presidency.
It is a fact that Trump ran on his alpha-male, “high energy” (meaning ‘testosterone’), ‘ruthless man of business’ image, a modern El Duce image, while Hillary Clinton ran on an out-of-the-closet feminism: let’s give hope to our daughters kind of message. She meant ‘let’s stop treating women as garbage’ and “women’s rights are human rights, and human rights are women rights“.
That men saw her campaign as focusing on feminism and were not pleased by it was stated in their ‘analysis’ of why she lost: “she lost because she focused on feminist issues”. Sanders said it, I mentioned it on this blog.
For the moment, keep in mind that at the top of the list of issues discussed in this presidential election cycle was a struggle to empower women. All that Hillary-hating was part of that struggle.
