Trump represents the “racist backlash” of white supremacists, claims journalist
The Guardian’s Steven Thrasher is looking forward to the day when America’s “dying white majority” is overthrown and a political revolution led by people of color ends the “white supremacist” system currently represented by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
In a video for the Guardian’s YouTube channel, Thrasher claims that the rise in popularity of Donald Trump was predictable because “every bold advancement of progress in the United States is met by a racist backlash.”
“When we voted against the odds to elect the first black president eight years ago, when we had a clear symbol that the country is literally becoming more black, why shouldn’t we have expected his successor to the meanest, whitest, most vile bigot possible?” remarks Thrasher.
“I’m waiting for the year 2043 when this white supremacist nation becomes mostly non-white,” he adds.
“That’s when true political revolution might be possible. But till then, in its final 27 years, some of the dying white majority are so desperate to hold onto their dwindling power it’ll come as no surprise when they follow history’s powder and elect a reactionary, racist, sexist man. And that’s why a Trump presidency would be as historically American as the bald eagle, indigenous genocide, the three-fifths clause, mass incarceration, and apple pie.”
As Chris Menahan points out, Thrasher has made a career out of spewing anti-white propaganda, including a 2010 article in which he commented on how, “the graying boomers will hate to pay for the education, health, and welfare of the coming browns.”
Thrasher’s assertion that a “white supremacist” elite dominates the United States fails to account for the fact that the President of the United States and the Attorney General are both black.
