If You Like Your Culture You Can Keep Your Culture


Unless you are white. If you’re white your culture is racist and bad and must change.

Molly Ball:

I think this is the identity politics election and I think it is true that a lot of it is reactionary. It’s reactionary in the sense that it’s a reaction to the rising identity politics of the left and of minorities.

You have a feminist movement more active and galvanized than it’s been in my lifetime. You have a civil rights galvanized and active and demanding in a forthright way not happening in the ’90s or the first decade of this century. And so a lot of the anti-political correctness sentiment Trump is tapping into, and the tribalism in his followers, is a reaction to what they see as the tribal assertions of their opponents.

The Trump supporters I’ve spoken to, that’s a lot of what they talk about. I’ve talked to Trump supporters right after he declined, briefly, to disavow the Ku Klux Klan. They said they didn’t understand why Trump should denounce the Klan if Obama doesn’t have to denounce Black Lives Matter.

To these Trump supporters, those were equivalent racist movements. So there’s a feeling — I’m not saying it’s correct, of course — but in terms of understanding how people feel, identity is a very powerful force. And a lot of white people feel they don’t have an outlet to express their identity the ways others do.

When I was a kid America was a great country. We took pride in that greatness. Just a few years earlier we had defeated the Nazis and the Imperial Japanese. We defended freedom all around the world. We weren’t perfect, but we were making progress. We aspired to build a color-blind society based upon our commonalities rather than exalting our differences.

America was Western Civilization at its peak. And because Western Civilization was primarily European, the dominant race was white. But racial identity was not the reason for our success. We had developed a superior culture. Back then we thought it would be beneficial to all of humanity if we spread our culture to the rest of the world.

Our culture has been under attack from within and without for over half a century. The Left despises our traditional culture. The Left aspires to build a multicultural society that focuses on and cherishes our differences. They seek to divide rather than unite us.

According to the Left, anyone who wants to preserve and defend the culture that made America great is a hateful bigot.

Donald Trump wants to make America great again.

    Now that’s one hell of a campaign poster.
    Add booze ‘n weed and I’m in.
    Actually I’m in anyway.

    • Constance says:

      I like the poster too. I think weed will be legal in all states soon as Washington has collected more than a half billion in taxes on weed this year so far. There aren’t a lot of Dem or Republican politicians who can pass up a tax source like that.

    • CiscoKid says:

      Great tip mothy67!
      Free? I’m going to use it.
      Would that make me a Democrat?

    • Constance says:

      Cool! Thanks Mothy, I always wondered exactly what Sling was so I’ll try it out. Maybe I can get Maria Bartiromo’s show.

      • mothy67 says:

        Quality not as good as cable. It would be a deal if you could pick your channels but its packages. I can buy each episode of Walking Dead next Day no ads for 1.99. Play Station Vue does offer FBN for 29.99. Same price as cable withoyt equipment fees.

    I guess this has to do with culture. What a crowd!

    I know she’s got fans here. Enjoy.

  3. Constance says:

    I was glad to hear that Trump vows to sue the women who falsely accused him of sexual misconduct as soon as the election is over. Women like that need to be called out and pay a price for their lies and publicity seeking. The media should be called out too. Unless there are clear details so the situation can be looked into these vague blanket accusations should never be published.

    • 1539days says:

      It’s too bad Herman Cain couldn’t do that. Those women disappeared into the woodwork. I wonder who paid for all of Gloria Allred’s legal work (ha ha) in that case?

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think Herman was blindsided as a non-politician, and yes, I was a big supporter of his for that reason, the original outsider 🙂 I felt so bad for him. I know he’s a Trump supporter and probably why he’s laid low since DJT’s “accusers” came out. Dems could easily rehash his bimbo eruption and open whatever wounds forced him out.

        This is not helping victims of real sexual abuse at all. Ladies, don’t wait decades, file a police report immediately! Then I’ll believe you.

        • Constance says:

          Right! And you need actual details so men can attempt to defend themselves. I am so disgusted that the first woman President needs to fake sexual assaults to attract voters. We have a lot of women politicians and judges in Washington state and I can say they are just as corrupt and useless as their male politician counterparts.

    The Molly Ball piece above is one of the worst writing examples that I’ve seen in ages.

    • Constance says:

      I don’t know, she is trying to understand and explain to the more extreme Progs. It looks like some Progs are starting to realize that if Hillary wins they still have to deal with the half of the country who are enthusiastic for Trump. You know the deplorables they have been degrading and accusing for the last 10 years.

      • Constance says:

        They have no way to reach us MAGA people since we don’t watch their media or read their papers or blogs anymore. How do they go forward with the extreme resistance of 45% of the country and when the dirty secrets of Prog political establishment have been broadcast, in their own words, for everyone to see? And for that matter how do the GOP e go forward? Do they think the Tea Party/Trump voters are ever coming back to their BS party? The Tea Party morphed into Trump MAGA and gained a lot of strength. Who knows who the next MAGA leader will be but that leader will not come from the GOPe and 4 more years of Progressive policy will inflame the MAGA people and even more people who have been asleep. Things are not going to end well for the GOPe, the Progs will kill themselves with their own excess and contempt for The People if they are given (or take) 4 more years.

        Or as Bill C. called them. {old white men} :facepalm:

  6. mothy67 says:

    The Clot was here today. Local news gave loads of coverage. It spoke at a high school. When Trump was here he filled the convention center. All coverage was on the “protesters”. Turns the gut.

    • DeniseVB says:

      See my comment below about attending the Trump Rally in Va Beach. I guess since the wikki confirmed that protesters were paid to disrupt Trump events, a contingent of Hillary supporters showed up at the gates to request entry to hold a “press conference” (rumors are Gabby Giffords was among them?) Yes, there was a ton of media “inside” the event.

      Denied ! Denied! Regent is a private university on private land. Mr. Trump PAID for the use of this facility. The venue respectfully turned them away. No protesters sneaked in the venue either. It was a tough crowd. Most of the locals were just hoping for a disruption, and showed me their concealed carry 🙂 Of course our local media whinged that the event was anti-first amendment, yada, yada, yada 🙂

  7. Dora says:

    This is good news.

    My very liberal brother and his wife, who live in Vegas, have decided not to vote for Hillary. She is too crooked even for them. However, not wanting to vote republican, they are going to waste their votes on Gary. I can’t talk sense into either one of them. Maybe this editorial will help them see the light.



    The Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial board endorses Republican Donald Trump for President


  8. Instapundit:

    Trump hasn’t lost yet, but yeah: Even if Hillary wins, a lot of the country is angry. Remember: The Tea Party was polite, and was insulted and destroyed. Trump voters aren’t polite, and they’re angry. If Trump loses, what comes next? Nothing you want to see.

    • Constance says:

      Funny you should post that because I was just talking with a friend yesterday at the grocery store and she told me her son (Trump voter) senses a breakdown of society threatening and brought her a gun safe, two guns and some ammo and is taking her to the shooting range next week. She didn’t refuse to have the guns in the house. Not that I think Trump voters are going to go on some rampage but I do think they are prepared and preparing to defend something. Also Trump voters ARE the so called “destroyed Tea Party” with some more recent converts.

  9. elliesmom says:

    I didn’t get to listen to Trump’s speech from Gettysburg until very late last night. I heard a plan for the first hundred days of a Trump presidency with as much detail as one would expect in a 45 minute speech. I saw a serious, subdued side of Trump, which many people have been asking for. A guy who is not comfortable with a teleprompter, but took the advice given to him. I also saw that Hillary is pulling most of her campaign staff out of Florida. I inferred from that she is conceding the state to Trump.

    My prog friends, none of whom actually listened to the speech, “heard” it as Trump’s concession speech. He’s losing, and rather than admit it’s his fault, he blamed it on a rigged system. It’s just a waiting game now until Hillary wins in a landslide, which explains why she’s pulling out of Florida. She’s so far ahead there she doesn’t need to campaign there anymore.

    Eyewitness testimony.

    • DandyTIger says:

      That would be really crazy to interpret that speech as a concession speech. It was clearly a serious, presidential, speech. Much of it the same messaging we’ve heard, and new stuff about the first 100 days. I guess the subdued presidential approach is so shockingly different than the bombastic stuff, that if you’d never heard his serious speeches, you’d think something weird was going on. But he’s been doing these type things for a while now. Eyewitness testimony as you said, and perhaps some wishful thinking.

      But if the progs think it’s over and Trump has lost, maybe they won’t bother to vote. 🙂

    • taw46 says:

      I have said before that I see way more MSNBC than I would like, as my relatives have it on 24/7. So all the progs watching it hear that, that she will win in a landslide. They have been saying that since all the women accusers emerged, especially since the 3rd debate. They do not quote any poll that shows him ahead, they do not show the massive crowds that show up for his rallies, they do not report any of the WikiLeaks emails. And yes, they say he has given up and is not trying anymore (even though he has up to 3 events a day). It is unreal to watch and listen to them.

      If Trump wins, and I still think he will, my relatives will be in need of therapy, as they are not prepared for that at all. If she wins…….well, at least I am prepared, as awful as it will be for our country.

    They have different machines in Illinois. Here in NY we fill in the dot next to the name of our candidates, then feed the ballot into the machine to be counted. Once that paper is gone, there is no way to see what happens next.

    Everyone liked the old lever machines much better. They were much more difficult to tamper with. But those are gone now. Progress, you know. (Sigh)

    • lateblum says:

      Dora, Thank you so much for this article. I’d been looking for this story for days, but couldn’t fine it. This was on the RADIO a few days ago. But not on the teevee. So not many people actually knew about it. I am certain this is not the only machine thusly “calibrated”. I am also pretty certain that the suburbs are not the only places where this “mistake” will occur.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I have thought that a good deal of the vitrol the left has been tossing at the couple that does that Fixer Upper show is because they are showing Waco in very different light than the picture painted by the Clinton Administration. Hence, people pointing out they might be overly churchy – you know like those kooks that died.

  15. helenk3 says:


    I grew up listening to and watching stories of how the FBI respected the law and enforced the law showing no favoritism.
    that has changed a lot

    I thought that DOJ stood for Department of Justice, not department of political enforcement
    silly me.

    today’s federal government has failed the people of this country badly.

    • lateblum says:

      In today’s Chicago Tribune, Eric Zorn’s column says that hacking those emails was a crime and exposing the content is also unethical. And that may, indeed, be true. He also honors Marco Rubio for stating that “tomorrow” this could be us” (the republicans). for that I say GOOD. I hope WikiLeaks does expose everyone in government who does unethical things because in my book, even if the end is honorable, it does not justify the means. (Oops, I guess I just contradicted myself.)
      It almost sounds like the priest’s duty to protect the sinner when he learns of something in the confessional.
      Gosh, I wonder who Zorn is supporting in this race.

    Good morning TCHers and thank you Lord for a beautiful day.

    I read on GatewayPundit that Trump is up 2 in the IBD poll — 43/41 with Johnson at 7 and Stein at 3.


    I’m positive at least half of Johnson supporters are “shy Trump” voters — he’ll get 3.5 of them on election day.
    I’m also willing to bet Trump takes at least 1% of Stein’s support too — when push comes to shove, those greenies are more concerned about what Hillary’s promise of nuclear war with Russia will do to the environment than climate change.

    Nonetheless, polls mean nothing — all the matters, all that ever matters, is TURN OUT. Trump has to win by enough to beat the margin of fraud. And it’s become clear to me that fraud it being planned for AZ and GA too — thankfully, Trump seems to have “citizen poll watchers” armed with their phones primed to look out for it. (Remember, the MSM was prepared to hid Hillary’s collapse at the 9/11 event — we only saw it because some guy had his phone on him).

    Stay calm and vote for Trump.

  20. CiscoKid says:

    Now that was one hell of a presentation.
    The narration was spot on.
    Reminds me of the quote by Admiral Yamamoto after the attack by Imperial Japan at Pearl Harbor.
    “I fear all we have done is awakened a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.”
    I may have left out a part or two but that’s what I remember.
    The American people have been awakened and are definitely filled with terrible resolve the likes which haven’t been seen in many,many years.

    Clinton beats Trump with women (46% to 38%), voters ages 18-44 (41% to 34%), the wealthy (47% to 38%), and investors (48% to 38%).
    Hillary beats Trumps support from the wealthy and investors.

    This is a very interesting and long read, but worthwhile. I think he makes some valid observations about our culture, but he leaves out some very pertinent factors, and comes to some wrong conclusions.

      Good read alright. But I wonder why these “try and understand the simple people” genre articles are suddenly being published everywhere. I hope the idiot progs are not going to be given the directive to try and be friendly with us MAGA people. Oh God, please don’t make me tolerate a bunch of fake prog friends, I just managed to alienate most of them on Facebook. Yes, that was a prayer.

    • helenk3 says:

      good thought provoking article

    • swanspirit says:

      I think one of the points he makes about the ” simple country folk” despising the city folk is not quite accurate. I think the city sophisticates have much more disrespect and deep contempt for the simple folks, than vice versa.
      I think some of the reality he omits, is the government corruption that even some city folk ate aware of, and that is an additional factor in why Donald Trump is so popular. I knoiknoiw it seems baked into the city country oppositional paradigm, but in our reality, it bears mentioning.

    Yay, I’m back online!!!

    It was our router, after thinking it must have been that hacker thing kicking everybody offline last Friday. So we waited. Nothing that evening, so called the neighbors with Fios, yep they were good (sh*t, it is us). Then called Verizon, after a few “tests”, they said our router was bad we’ll send a tech out before 9 PM SUNDAY. He just left. Almost 48 hours without internet must be what detox feels like 😀

    I did read Chip and Joanna’s book, and just finished ABC News’ Elizabeth Vargas’s. I should have read them in reverse order. After the happy high the Gaines’ left me with (the best rags to riches story I’ve ever read), Vargas dragged me down to the weepies after her long battle with alcoholism and details of what it’s like in rehab x 3 or 4 times. Scary. She may never be cured or stay sober, her book is a warning. Yikes *sipping on my bottled water* .

    The Trump Rally in Virginia Beach was a fantastic experience, if only the news covered them that way. About 10k people gathered on the lovely plaza in front of Regent U’s library. I’ve heard Trump’s stump speech over a hundred times, but nothing like it in person with people fired up and raring to go. He was about an hour and a half late, but nobody noticed 🙂 Event did start on time with many speakers leading the pep rally, and surpise speaker Rudy Guiliani (Crowd: Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! like the movie).

    Funniest thing that happened to me, I wore the shirt I got from VM’s store “Je Suis Deplorable”. A few people asked me if it said “Jesus is Deplorable” ?? Mind you, I’m on Pat Robertson’s campus of the holy rollers, not to mention, most of the crowd were probably not into Charlie Hebedo much less read French. Maybe I’ll send it to Jadzi 😉

    • lateblum says:

      I watched nearly all of this video. I am fuming. I’m so grateful that I don’t watch this asshat. Ever. I’d like to know why Trump, Jr didn’t ask Stephanopoulos, “Why haven’t you asked questions about real issues rather than the Clinton-driven sex scandals?” I wish he had very clearly turned the tables on George instead of reminding GS that he has known the Trump family for years. That was too nuanced for some people watching these shows.
      I want this election to be over. I want HRC to go down in history as the first woman to run for president to lose so people can say, “We need a better candidate next time”.
      I’m not voting until Nov 8th. I’ll bring my phone and use the camera if there is any problem with the machines and I’ll take photos if I have to. I’d love to be a poll watcher, but I have to take the g-babies that day. The other granny-nanny will be out of the country then.

  38. CiscoKid says:

    It’s either Hillary has been lying all along and still is, or Park Ridge isn’t very proud that Hillary is from there so it’s keeping quiet.

    Interesting Facts About Gun Control:
    There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. U.S. population 324,059,091 as of Wednesday, June 22, 2016.

    Do the math: 0.000000925% of the population die from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant!

    What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:

    • 65% of those deaths are by suicide which would never be prevented by gun laws
    • 15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified
    • 17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons – gun violence
    • 3% are accidental discharge deaths

    So technically, “gun violence” is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Well, first, how are those deaths spanned across the nation?
    • 480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago
    • 344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore
    • 333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit
    • 119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years)

    So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause.

    This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation – or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others.
    For example, California had 1,169 – and Alabama had 1.
