Trump Voters Aren’t Angry At The ‘Establishment,’ They’re Angry At Brown People

Of 435 Members of the House of Representatives, three — 3! — have lost primaries in 2016. Two of them were retired by redistricting. One Democrat — Rep. Chaka Fattah — couldn’t overcome the small matter of a federal indictment.

Not exactly an anti-establishment wave filled with angry voters set on undermining, setting fire to, or jamming hot spears of frustration into the rusty gears of the corroded DC machine.

Analysts looking to excuse Republicans for nominating a demagogue relying on racist tropes have turned to two alibis.

First, we hear about “economic anxiety” — a defense that gets hollowed out by antiracist educator Tim Wise’s simple assertion: “If the only reason for Trump’s support was economic anxiety, then people of color should be flocking to Trump.” Because people of color, statistically, are still suffering far more in this economy, which has been generally improving for almost six years. If there’s anyone who should be “economically anxious,” it’s Black people — who give Trump the highest unfavorable rating of any group at 94 percent. In America, that’s as close as you can get to unanimous.

Secondly, we hear about a general anti-establishment desire to watch the whole craphouse go up in flames in which Trump’s appeal is explained by the charm of his blather on the stump, the kitsch of his rallies, and statistical anomalies of a few vocal women or people of color backing the self-proclaimed billionaire.

I understand the urge to absolve our fellow Americans of being seduced by bigotry’s craven lure. But in the past few weeks any attempt to excuse Trump supporters from at least being tolerant of racism has become even more futile.

A Washington Post/ABC poll released on Monday showed that 7 of 10 Americans disapprove of Donald Trump. This data followed two weeks in which the probable GOP nominee continually explained that a heroic federal judge born in Indiana couldn’t give Trump a fair trial because the judge is “Mexican.”

Even Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan called Trump’s outburst an example of “textbook racism.”

Trump supporters who found their hero’s attack on the judge’s heritage compelling argued that it couldn’t be “racism” because “Mexican” isn’t a race. Apparently, to them, it’s a massive coincidence that Trump’s worst qualities — his birtherism, his suspicion that the president is secretly Muslim, his urge to deport millions, and his insistence that we cower behind a wall — all tend to be evoked by fears of non-white people.

It’s a decent sign for America that even Trump supporters want to dance behind the pretense of acceptability — as if just insulting someone’s ethnic heritage alone isn’t disqualifying for a presidential candidate. And though Republicans were the only group that didn’t overwhelmingly find the comments racist, many in the Party of Lincoln recognize the stench of this bullshit.

Remember: A majority of the party voted for another candidate in the primary. And several party leaders have refused to fall behind Trump, a genuinely brave stance that could cost their movement a majority on the Supreme Court.

But the “anger” of Trump’s unapologetic supporters needs to be examined — not absolved — if there’s any hope of using this abominable moment in our nation’s history to expose how conservative tropes have long used strategic anti-minority rhetoric to turn people against the institutions that built the middle class..

If Trump said that Canadians or Germans or Israelis were “rapists” who bring drugs to America, though some are probably okay, the offense would be obvious. Trump supporters might argue, “Well, he wouldn’t say that because it isn’t true,” without any more data to debunk those accusations than Trump had to utter his slurs against Mexicans. And that’s exactly the point.

Trump carefully picks his targets — as he always has. Though he is in general rude and abrasive to anyone who doesn’t kiss his ass, the Trump political style, derived from George Wallace, is designed to focus a wellspring of hate against convenient targets — generally with a thin veneer of strategic deniability.

You see now that GOP establishment figures are attempting to legitimize Trump’s bigotry by writing apologia for his “temporary Muslim ban,” which would have prevented exactly zero terror attacks. Trump didn’t invent the bigotry he is using. Republicans have argued for Muslim internment camps and House Republicans have voted for mass deportations over reform over and over and over.

Trump has awakened an urge that has been mostly sublimated in the Republican party toward outward bigotry. And I wouldn’t make such accusations if the data didn’t back them up.

Let’s start with the group that Trump decided to target by choosing birtherism as a way to make himself politically relevant, after decades of looking for ways to get people to beg him to run for president.

“The Republican Party relies almost entirely on whites, who provide about 90 percent of its votes,” New York Magazine‘s Jonathan Chait points out.

This has been true since the mid-1960s and is either the result of a huge coincidence or an overwhelming, undeniable sense that the party prioritizes one identity over others. Republicans occasionally argue that this is is the result of minority voters’ passion for “free stuff,” or maybe of Black and Latino voters being fooled into the “Democratic Plantation” — which are racist arguments in themselves.

Millionaires who support Democrats vote against their own material interests, as do working people who vote for Republicans intent on destroying collective bargaining rights. We all vote against our narrow interests sometimes, because voting is mostly about identity and values. We should assume that Black, Latino and Asian voters understand what they’re voting for and and are able to formulate their own visions of America.

And we should assume the same about Trump voters.

“Among the vast majority of GOP voters who think that the growing number of newcomers to the U.S. ‘threatens traditional American customs and values,’ 59 percent have warm feelings toward Donald Trump – with 42 percent saying they feel very warmly toward him,” Bradley Jones and Jocelyn Kiley of PewResearch explain.

Demos policy analyst Sean McElwee — along with his collaborators Jason McDaniel and Philip Cohen — looked into the polling data and found that “racial resentment” is the defining factor of Trump’s appeal.

“[I]ncreased levels of racial stereotyping among white respondents — as measured by beliefs that Black people, Muslims and Hispanics are ‘lazy’ or ‘violent’ — strongly increases support for Trump, even after controlling for other factors,” McElwee and McDaniel write. “The opposite is true, however, when it comes to support for Marco Rubio.”

This doesn’t mean every Trump supporter is a raging racist or even conscious of his or her own racism. It just means Trump supporters are, according to, McElwee and Cohen, “dramatically more likely to embrace racial stereotypes than the average Republican or Democrat.”

Even the slogan “Make America Great Again” harkens to some mysterious period in the past, which he won’t quite identify. But you can be sure that wherever in the past Trump takes us, it will be an era when women, minorities, and the LGBTQ community had fewer rights and less dignity.

We shouldn’t insult Trump supporters by suggesting that they are in denial of the ugly overtones and undertones that define the Trump campaign. They aren’t oblivious to the qualities that have made Trump the choice of David Duke, Stormfront, and hordes of online anti-Semites. They get why students at a Des Moines high school chanted “Trump! Trump! Trump!” at the students of a predominately Latino high school that defeated them in basketball.

America has often been confronted by a choice between our worst instincts and our better ones. Trump campaign is unprecedented in the way he lies and abandons any responsibility for reason, preparation, or consistency. But his worst crime is to play on the infectious and deadly prejudices that have been ingrained in our society. And now the Republican Party needs to decide whether it is willing to align itself this twisted version of “patriotism” forever.

    The overt hatred of Mexicans, which actually includes all Hispanics and Latinos; and the constant insinuations that minorities – read African Americans – depend on welfare and are inclined to commit crimes; and the relentless attacks against Muslims, are all influenced by prejudice, fear of change, insecurity, and our inclination to blame someone else for the effects of our decisions.
    Allegations that the problem is moving in the wrong direction, that our economy is in shambles, and that our foreign policy is a disaster, are just excuses used to hide a pervasive mindset, and the determination of many to take America back to the pre-Civil Rights days, when everyone knew their place in society.
    Claiming that our economy is in shambles when our GDP is second to none, when we dominate the global economy, and when we are creating jobs instead of losing them, is ridiculous. Yes, there are problems, but they are not caused by government mismanagement or mysterious policies. The outsourcing of jobs did not start 7 or 14 years ago. It has been going on since, at least, the Nixon days. Off shoring is influenced by a corporate desire to expand, grow, and increase profits. It is facilitated by the fact that most “American” corporations are actually multi-nationals, and by the fact that our presence in foreign lands provide more than just profits. It is also a tool used to influence change, and cooperation, at a global scale. Geo-politics are a major factor for our refusal to implement policies, such as President Obama’s proposal to reward companies that invest at home, and punish those that outsource jobs.
    As far as foreign policy, opinions are influenced largely by ideology and personal goals, rather than what is best for us as a nation. The first thing to remember is that instead of losing 4,700 U.S. soldiers fighting a war that we created, we have lost 2 during the last 4 years. No foreign terrorist attacks have taken place in the USA since 9/11. Instead, we are dealing with domestic terrorism, which is admittedly harder to defeat considering our constitutional rights, and the privileges of living in a free and open society. Instead of 11 U.S. embassies and consulates being attacked, we had one (Benghazi). Yes, there are problems in Libya, Syria, Iraq, and North Korea continues to flex its muscles the way they have been doing for decades, but short of becoming the self-appointed policeman of the world, Nirvana remains as elusive as it has always been.
    The expressions of hatred, and the fear mongering that dominate our political campaigns, must be taken in the proper context, and not as evidence of fact.

        When a political party goes as far as proposing changing the Constitution to be able to deport children of illegal immigrants BORN IN THE USA, their position goes beyond the issue of law and order. I have heard people insulting Latinos when they celebrate Cinco de Mayo, including those whose ancestors lived in what we know now as the USA since Columbus set foot in the Americas.
        Cultural and ethnic prejudice is not influenced by a single issue, such as the taunting, ridicule, threats, and sometimes, persecution that minority groups are subjected to.
        There are many contributing factors to the ideology of those who attacked us on 9/11, and the domestic terrorists that have attacked us since then. It ranges from misinterpretation of religious dogma, to the influence that religious leaders such as the Ayatollahs, Mullahs, and Imams have on their flock, to the fear that Western cultural influences are going to destroy their way of life, to the taunting they are subjected to. They are, by no means, innocent individuals. They are often religious zealots, people filled with intense hatred towards those who are different from them, hatred towards those who occupy their lands, hatred towards those who bribe their leaders to advance their agendas, deranged individuals, and people with human flaws who take it out on innocent people to hide their perceived inadequacies.
        Nobody can condone or excuse what they do, but it is important to understand why they act the way they do if our goal is to defeat them. Tit for tats seldom produce positive results.

          Dominick–thank you for the reasoned response. First, citizenship typically is derived from either jus sanguinas (law of the blood) meaning mom and dad were Americans so Jr. is too; or, jus soli (law of the soil) meaning Jr. was born on American soil so he is an American. I am not aware that the Republican or Democrat parties have proposed any change to our law that would permit the expulsion of someone born ‘jus soli’. I don’t know what was said by way of insult to Latinos celebrating Cinco de Mayo (I personally find it a good excuse to imbibe some Coronas!). Were they waving the Mexican flag and desecrating ours?
          Finally, a tit for tat may not always be the correct response, however we seem locked in a life and death struggle with the muslimes. I wish to remain armed. Molon labe

        All but one of the attacks carried out by Muslims in the USA were done by American born citizens. Most of them had no direct affiliation to ISIS or Al Qaeda, although most of them sympathized with what those organizations have been doing.
        Domestic terrorism – Muslim and Christian – is a serious problem that needs attention and resolution. Unfortunately, the determination of some people to focus strictly on those carried out by Muslims, and their insistence on demonizing an entire religion for the actions of a few, makes the probability of a lasting solution a virtual impossibility. I suspect the latter is not an accident. It is, in fact, a deliberate strategy.
        The collapse of the Soviet Union, and the socio-economic changes in China, required a new boogeyman to justify our huge “defense” budgets, our tendency to interfere in the internal affairs of other nations, and an agenda focused on global economic expansion and dominance.

            It’s absolutely true, Granny. Donald Trump is a living symbol of just how far afield the GOP as a Party has drifted since Reagan.
            How long they’ve been able to survive without real leadership. As well as the consequences, and epic political failure they are facing today as a result. As was the case for 20 years, all who would come after Reagan attempted to imitate him, and paste his 80s era policies onto a changing political, and socio-economic landscape. By essentially denying, or ignoring, or trying to explain away the dramatic changes that were going on in the Country. Changes that were literally clobbering their White, Blue Collar political base. Opening the door for a shameless demagogue to take down their hapless corporate fed organization from the ground up. It has been a sight, has it not?

So when People here kill abortion doctors, blow up abortion clinics, beat people so badly because they are brown and they think they are Muslims or walk into a house of worship and open fire do we call them Radical Christian Terrorists or Home Grown Terrorist or Religious Zealot Terrorists ? What changes by the label you put on them

          So you don’t agree with Trump when he says, that not all, but the majority of illegal immigrants from Mexico are bringing crime, drugs, disease, committing rapes, and murdering our White gals Or you do agree with Trump, but think that kind of ethnic slurring, and false economic demagoguery, is not in fact racist, but something else? Or Trumps comments impugning a Judge’s ability to fairly preside over his fraud case. Because as Trump put it, the Judge’s immigrant, and ethnic heritage, together with his own comments about Mexican immigrants, like the Judge’s parents, and his promise to build a wall. Seeing that it was Trump’s own comments, not the press, not the Judge, and not the Judge’s parents that precipitated the issue, and caused his own angst. Do you believe Trump believes many Latinos will perceive his comments as racist. And if not, why shouldn’t they? Or, should they simply ignore what you claim is a, “race pimping,” Left? Because there is no real issues there at all? Just wondering where, and what info your comments are coming from..; Sincerely baffled, Low Info Liberal…

      It’s called “Race Pimping,” because racism no longer exists anywhere in but in the liberal mind. And hasn’t for a very long time. Well, at least since 1964. Isn’t that how it goes? Very similar to Gays not existing in Iran. Where according to the Ayatollah, it’s just something a lying liberal, or an infidel Western press uses to excite ignorant, wacko insurrectionists. Sure! And, Mexicans, Hispanics, and women, especially women of color. Heck, they all love Trump. Doesn’t everyone? Pay no attention to the lying polls, just ask Donald. He’s politically incorrect you know? So he’ll give it to you straight! Trump loves Mexicans, he hires plenty of them.

      Just take Recessions, and deficits. They never happen under trickle down, Republican Administrations like Ronald Reagan’s (hallowed be His name.)
      Or G.W. Bush’s. But have exploded under the Kenyan Socialist. To where now, the economy is collapsing, terrorists are invading, Mexicans are raping, and stealing jobs, and still the liberals, never satisfied, are preparing to confiscate my AK, just as Armageddon, and WWIII are about to begin. But, be that as it may, I’m a Conservative Republican, and I love everybody! No racism here!

They haven’t a clue about how Trump plains to fix the economy, All that matters is getting those Mexicans. Look at the posting on line.

I think there are probably many reasons not the least of which is the feeling that by supporting him they are flipping off the political establishment.

            The “good deeds” you claim are debatable but nearly everyone does some good, Bush for example, though Trump may be an exception. But I have never “lied” on this site. I may be wrong on occasion and I welcome being corrected but correction requires evidence, not just an assertion that I am wrong (usually accompanied by an insult).

            Even if you can show some good deeds by the Clintons that are verifiable and not just propaganda that doesn’t speak to my point that the Clintons have used political office to greatly enrich themselves just as many others have done. Virtually none of our presidents for at least the last 50 years have made any serious attempt to “Make America Great” except as it benefited them personally.

          The first step, then, would be to insure that the Supreme Court gets to atone for Citizens United and MCCutcheon in order to help get the huge sims of money out of politics.

          I also agree with you, “lucky one,” that we will also need to address the issue of our democracy becoming an oligarchy, which, as you correctly pointed out, serves the mega rich.

            I’m pointing out that there is too much money in the political arena – on ALL sides!

            To get power back toward the masses, we need to nudge it away from those who have and may have been abusing power.

          The pilgrims were innocent , they had no knowledge of germ theory in the 1600s. But due to trading and social mixings disease could easily spread.

        Typical BS utilized to diminish the eventual move to the west and the murder of millions of American natives. Yes, the Spaniards killed many people and so did the French in Mexico, and so did the Dutch slave traders and the Jewish ship owners.

        You want to continue to fight the English Spanish war?

        You will be left with an entire world that simply wants to cut YOUR throat for incursions as close as the creation of ISIS.

    I don’t disagree with your broad argument, but your first point is just wrong. Black people are smart enough to realize that the Republican Party offers no help to poor people, no matter the depth of their economic anxiety, so the fact that they are more economically stressed that the rest of the population is no reason to expect them to support any Republican, much less an overtly racist one.
