    I Know Why Poor Whites Chant Trump, Trump, Trump

    Apr 1, 2016By Jonna Ivin

    From the era of slavery to the rise of Donald Trump, wealthy elites have relied on the loyalty of poor whites. All Americans deserve better.


    I’m just a poor white trash motherfucker. No one cares about me.


    I met the man who said those words while working as a bartender in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas. It was a one-street town in Benton County. It had a beauty parlor, a gas station, and a bar where locals came on Friday nights to shoot the shit over cheap drinks and country music. I arrived in Arkansas by way of another little town in Louisiana, where all but a few local businesses had boarded up when Walmart moved in. In Arkansas, I was struggling to survive. I served drinks in the middle of the afternoon to people described as America’s “white underclass” — in other words, people just like me.

    Arkansas is home to the most racist town in the USA. They even have their own white pride radio station.

    The rich white plantation owners didn't care about them

    The politicians didn't care about them

    FDR cared about them, but they reject anything progressive

    The problem is the turn in the south is their own doing; sorry, that's the way it is, they are no better than those in the Middle East who decry the Palestinian issue and use it for their own benefit, without doing anything about it.

    They COULD have voted for Sanders; they COULD have taken a leap of faith, because SANDERS platform is VERY MUCH like FDR's.

    But no, they will vote with their gonads; like they always do....,

    I should feel sorry for them?

    The Irish have a name "Dying Shamoiching"

    That's like the guy with the lung cancer cough, chain smoking, and saying "you know, I've got to give these up one day",

    NO _ FUCKING ____ SYMPATHY HERE.

    Its part of machismo and part "he gets me." The local plumbers union just endorsed Trump here and I was like "whaat?" But to hear these guys speak, they feel Trump is more like them, he swears and speaks without an edit button. Ever go to a bar and just sit and listen to a group of men? They sound like Trump. So its not totally unexpected from that perspective. Others like that he will stand up and be a bully right back. While others are happy he isn't a woman.

    I suggest that everyone who thinks they have figured this out listen to Washington Journal on any morning where Trump is likely to be discussed.

    The main reason for them trusting Trump is that they don't trust the political correctness of Washington.
    Thanks from Rorschach
