I have said my piece on Trump for now but the worldwide wets of the special snowflake meltdown just can’t give it a rest. Scott Alexander over at Slate Star Codex is trying to administer some soothing facts to them. Good luck with that. Here’s how he addresses their anguished cry of “racist!!!” for example.
Trump made gains among blacks. He made big among Latinos. He made gains among Asians. The only major racial group where he didn’t get a gain of greater than 5% was white people. I want to repeat that: the group where Trump’s message resonated least over what we would predict from a generic Republican was the white population.
Nor was there some surge in white turnout. I don’t think we have official numbers yet, but by eyeballing what data we have it looks very much like whites turned out in equal or lesser numbers this year than in 2012, 2008, and so on.
And here’s the voting data. Not that facts ever got in the way of their identity politics hatred and division campaigns before, right?
If they weren’t making people hate each other by falsely accusing people of hating each other it would be funny. God knows it’s all I can do to keep from hating them.
