Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

You have to consider that those same working class whites in middle America who voted for Obama twice, rejected Hillary and went for Trump. That means that Clinton did not do a good enough job connecting with those folks even though she is one of them. Her lack of attention in this area of the country reinforced the notion of the liberal elites on the coast. In addition, I don't believe that many really wanted a woman, at least not Clinton. The whole FBI Director email stunt one week before the election was significant and a signal that the "guys" were not really feeling a women as commander in chief. What is more disturbing is Trumps populist mantra that somehow we are being over run by immigrant outsiders and that they are the reason for "your" money problem that is really caused by technology and the shift to a world economy. If you saw 60 minutes last night, you saw film of Mussolini spouting the same fascist nationalistic garbage. There is actually tape of Mussolini saying that he would make Italy great again. What progressives have to address is the notion by the white working class that making room at the table for immigrants means less for them, despite the fact that America has always had room at the table for others.
