Frank Rich: No Sympathy For The Hillbilly

In New York Magazine, Frank Rich writes off the White working class as a bunch of drug addicted hillbillies who should reap the consequences of voting against their own interests:

“On the morning after, traumatized liberals set out hunting for answers as if Election Day were 9/11 all over again. The ubiquitous question of 15 years earlier — “Why do they hate us?” — was repurposed for Donald Trump’s demolition of the political order. Why did white working-class voters reject Hillary Clinton and the Democrats? Why did they fall for a billionaire con man? Why do they hate us? …

That makes it all the more a fool’s errand for Democrats to fudge or abandon their own values to cater to the white-identity politics of the hard-core, often self-sabotaging Trump voters who helped drive the country into a ditch on Election Day. They will stick with him even though the numbers say that they will take a bigger financial hit than Clinton voters under the Republican health-care plan. …

Perhaps it’s a smarter idea to just let the GOP own these intractable voters. Liberals looking for a way to empathize with conservatives should endorse the core conservative belief in the importance of personal responsibility. Let Trump’s white working-class base take responsibility for its own votes — or in some cases failure to vote — and live with the election’s consequences. …”

Can you imagine reading an article in the “mainstream” called “No Sympathy for the Jews” which describes Jews as a bunch of left-leaning culture destroyers who vote against their own interests by supporting mass immigration to the West from Islamic countries? Yeah, me neither.

    SHOCKING! A Jew hates white Rednecks.

    • ))) Depeche Europa (((

      I’ve never seen such a thing before…..

      Ha!!

    • pgg804

      Probably many whites that aren’t Rednecks too. Frank Rich was also one of the attack dogs on Mel Gibson and his movie “Passion of the Christ”. So, he hates Christians too.

      • Yehudah Finkelstein

        Oh Jews hate other Whites too.

        Jeffrey Goldberg’s Wiki profile quotes him bitching about being bullied by Irish Catholic “Pogromists” during his Long Island youth.

        Who can forget Gordon Gekko’s (a Wall Street Jew portrayed by Michael Douglas, the Hollywood Jew) quote abouts WASPS: “That’s the one thing you have to remember about WASPs: they love animals and hate people.”

    • Yeah… cannot believe it!

  • ))) Depeche Europa (((

    What a Disgusting Little Jew……

    I love that he’s still Butthurt though…….

    I love that’s he’s letting his Anti-White Bigotry show…….

    One of the reasons I voted for Trump was to give a Big Middle Finger to Liberal NYC Jews like Frank Rich…..

    One of the Greatest Victories of Nov 8th…….

    ……was to Defeat the Jewish Left……..

    It’s also a Victory for all of America……

    The Jewish Supremacists don’t like it when the Silent Majority learns how much actual power it has…..

    Ha!!

    And Frank Rich……if you see or read this……..

    Defeating you and other Liberal Jews…….on Nov 8th…….is in my Interest…….

    I take full responsibility for Defeating and Crushing you…….

    With a Smile and a Laugh…..

  • The whole “voting against your own interests” trope came from the 1990s book “What’s the Matter with Kansas.” To sum that book up:

    “Sure, we Democrats hate you, your family, your race, your religion and want to replace you with darker skinned people who we like much more than you ignorant, racist, hick creationist Christian Nazi white trash. But Democrats are going to raise your minimum wage from $8 an hour to $9 an hour. So don’t vote against your own interests by voting GOP your ignorant hillbilly”

    That author actually admitted at the end of the book that the Democrats weren’t really offering that much better of a deal than the GOP was anyway.

    On the other hand – do not underestimate the Republicans. The GOP has the Presidency, the House, the Senate, soon the Supreme Court, and nearly 2/3rd of the state governments – nearly enough to hold a Constitutional Convention without a single Democrat vote. What can we expect the Republicans to do?

    Amnesty the illegals, throw poor white people off of health care, cut taxes for global corporations, and start a new war against Israel’s enemies in the Middle East.

    “Can you imagine reading an article in the “mainstream” called “No
    Sympathy for the Jews” which describes Jews as a bunch of left-leaning
    culture destroyers who vote against their own interests by supporting
    mass immigration to the West from Islamic countries?”

    No, but I do recall a very smart Republican named James Baker who once said, “Fuck the Jews, they never vote for us anyway.” A commendable attitude certainly.

      start a new war against Israel’s enemies in the Middle East.

      You’d think it wouldn’t take that much military force to obliterate these basically weak countries in Israel’s neighborhood. I would worry more about the Jews’ hijacking the U.S. military to try to destroy Russia, because Russia could put up a real fight.

      • Flynn was purged because that idiot had “put Iran on notice” and the real Deep State has been kicking against the Israel lobby since the Iraq Study group in 2006. The Democrats wanted Sessions’ scalp too but the Deep State doesn’t care about domestic politics.

        Thank God Obama stood up to the Likud fifth column and made a deal with Iran. The point is to draw Iran out of Russia’s orbit that way the USA gets the two major ME powers, Saudi and Iran, on our side. The shitty little country is living on borrowed time and good riddance to bad rubbish.

        I disagree with the conventional wisdom of the Alt Right on Russia. Of course I don’t want a war with Russia but the conflict with Russia, including in Ukraine (and even the fake war with “ISIS” and the conflict over Syria) is a lot more complicated than just “the Jews.” Russia and Israel made a deal over Syria, remember, and Netanyahu gave Trump his marching orders to make nice with Putin. But Turkey is the wild card now.

        Trump needs to forget starting any more wars and just deport the illegals and build that wall.

    the day of the rope will come and then (((Rich))) and his fellow tribal genociders will have to face the consequences of their own actions.

  • WR_the_realist

    First, I do hope Trump ditches Ryancare. It doesn’t look like it’s any improvement over Obamacare. If Trump rejects Ryancare, Ryan will own that disaster. If Trump promotes it, he will own that disaster. Trump made a big mistake wading into the intractable swamp of a national health care policy in his first year. He should stick to enforcing immigration law, building the wall, and renegotiating trade treaties in his first year.

    any plan that doesn’t pay for alternative cancer treatments is a fraud

  • Maybe, Frank Rich, should take a look at the “African-American” community for what he says (of which only 5% voted to Make America Great Again) or the Latinos….

  • Charlie Primero

    It took this Harvard Jew 5,098 words to say “Whites are irredeemable scum we must disenfranchise”.

    And they can’t figure out why we won’t vote for their shills.

  • Polar Girl

    Is TPP really in the white working class’ “best interests”?

  • Ed Edgerton

    That makes it all the more a fool’s errand for Democrats to fudge or
    abandon their own values to cater to the white-identity politics of the
    hard-core,…

    Trump does not engage in explicit white identity politics. If he did, then we would be in a much better position now. He probably wouldn’t have been elected president, but he would have helped make explicit white identity politics mainstream, which is crucial. A celebrity billionaire promoting explicit white identity politics would be of tremendous benefit. As usual, the liberal (((Frank Rich))) exaggerates the “racism” of white conservatives (or civic nationalists) so as to try to browbeat them into giving up voting for their implicit group interests. He is counting on these whites to be afraid of the accusation. If these whites would just realize that it is good and just for them to consciously vote for their group interests, then the spell would be broken.

    They will stick with him even though the numbers say that they will take
    a bigger financial hit than Clinton voters under the Republican
    health-care plan.

    What a friggin liar this (((Frank Rich))) is. He is narrowly defining Trump voters and their interests to make it look like Obamacare is a huge benefit for them. Most white Trump voters certainly do not use Obamacare. Also, they realize that stopping the immigration invasion is far more crucial than boosting freebees for the poor.

    Judging by the deportation numbers /pol posted on Twitter earlier today, nope he seems to be doing a good
