If you believe the liberal media, any supporter of Donald J. Trump must be an angry white man between the ages of 45 and 75, carrying both a gun and a pitchfork they use when chasing undocumented immigrants, and owners of a pickup truck in which the stereo plays Toby Keith 24 hours a day (no matter whether the truck was running or not).
So, imagine the shock and dismay felt by a writer for the Los Angeles Times when he was forced to go outside of the protective bubble of his liberal beliefs and actually visit Donald Trump’s Southern California campaign HQ
He found out that Trump’s supporters were — gasp! — actually diverse!
“It was as if the whole thing had been staged, in Cambodia Town, no less, to belie the notion that Trump’s appeal is largely limited to older white males,” Times journalist Steve Lopez wrote.
The reporter from the liberal media stalwart described meeting Filipino millennials, Mexican-American and Jewish men and even — shocker, I know — women supporting Trump.
Also, written on blackboards were the “names of volunteers from the African-American, Hispanic and Asian communities.”
Here’s a picture of Trump’s campaign HQ that was taken by Breitbart:
Wow. Amazing how that doesn’t fit the media narrative. Meanwhile, why not go to one of those Democrat fundraisers held up in Beverly Hills by one of the Hollywood elite? I’m sure that would be just as diverse as that photo … right?
The media’s perception of the conservative movement — in particular the populist wing of the conservative movement — has been so effectively defined by the media that they usually don’t even bother to check on the truth of their own definition.
In fact, when Lopez saw it with his own eyes, he said he thought the “whole thing had been staged, in Cambodia Town, no less.” He later expressed shock that a traditional Cambodian “blessing dance” had been performed at the center’s opening by the Khmer Arts Cultural Center, adding that he would have paid money to see that.
Aside from the palpable condescension, where is the PC police on this one? After all, it seems that Lopez has a bit of a thing with “exoticizing the other,” as Edward Said might have put it.
Donald Trump fans who are people of color? Who would have thought? Quick, let me launch into a study about them that sounds a lot like patronizing pseudo-anthropology while simultaneously apologizing for their beliefs
At least one Mexican-American Trump volunteer, who told Lopez that “there are too many illegals here,” said that “the only thing the (Los Angeles) Times is any good for is to wrap fish in it.”
Tough words for the liberal media, but not too far off. Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you agree.
