Today’s highly interesting read (01/11/21): Ignoring the concerns of Trump supporters will destroy America

Today’s read is from journalist Jason Whitlock, an African-American. here’s an excerpt, then the entire column.

I guess I should apologize for not joining the rest of the media in feigning outrage and calling for the trespassers (at the Capitol) to be tried for treason. But I’m neither outraged nor feeling vengeful because of their act of civil disobedience.

Trump supporters will not go away quietly or peacefully. It’s their country, too. Their concerns are legitimate. The lawmakers they chased to the basement of the Capitol sold out the American working-class man and woman.

Trumpism is the cry of American citizens uninterested in adopting the cultures and customs of France, China, Italy, Cuba, Venezuela, Canada, or any of the other places global elites romanticize. Trumpism is the cry of the working class who believe the Big Tech billionaires are building an America that cuts them out of the American Dream. Trumpism is the cry of Americans who value authenticity over the fraudulence of political correctness.

Read it all here.
