‘Smug Left’ Caused Trump’s Victory


Recommended Posts

Anthony Bourdain has already said he won’t patronize restaurants with chefs who go along with a Donald Trump administration.


But that’s not the last word the chef and CNN host has about the president-elect. In an interview with Reason magazine, Bourdain says elite liberals like him were the ones who caused Donald Trump to win the election.


Bourdain discussed his hatred of the term “political correctness” and the tendency to want to ban offensive speech from the public discourse. And he said the “contempt” many coastal Democrats feel for middle America is exactly what caused Trump’s rise:


“The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the upswell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we’re seeing now.”


“I’ve spent a lot of time in gun-country, God-fearing America. There are a hell of a lot of nice people out there, who are doing what everyone else in this world is trying to do: the best they can to get by, and take care of themselves and the people they love. When we deny them their basic humanity and legitimacy of their views, however different they may be than ours, when we mock them at every turn, and treat them with contempt, we do no one any good. Nothing nauseates me more than preaching to the converted.


The self-congratulatory tone of the privileged left—just repeating and repeating and repeating the outrages of the opposition—this does not win hearts and minds. It doesn’t change anyone’s opinions. It only solidifies them, and makes things worse for all of us.”

Bourdain’s example of such a contemptuous liberal? Real Time host Bill Maher. When asked his opinion of the lefty comedian, Bourdain did not mince words—and it’s clear he’s not going to get invited back on the panel any time soon.

cheating in elections caused it

 

 

 

 

 

3 million more living breathing Americans voted for Hilary

Give it up snowflake. The Bitch, and all her supporters, knew the rules of the election going in. The DNC picked a bad candidate who can't relate to the voter and ran a bad campaign. The only evidence of cheating in the election process is the DNC cheating Sanders of a fair shot at the nomination.

 

Now...grow up.

Get over it AH that's not how it works. I would say CHEATING is the same as not accepting the law in this case.
