I shit you not. From NBC:

The Trump effect: New study connects white American intolerance and support for authoritarianism

Since the founding of the United States, politicians and pundits have warned that partisanship is a danger to democracy. George Washington, in his Farewell Address, worried that political parties, or factions, could “allow cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men” to rise to power and subvert democracy. More recently, many political observers are concerned that increasing political polarization on left and right makes compromise impossible, and leads to the destruction of democratic norms and institutions.

A new study, however, suggests that the main threat to our democracy may not be the hardening of political ideology, but rather the hardening of one particular political ideology. Political scientists Steven V. Miller of Clemson and Nicholas T. Davis of Texas A&M have released a working paper titled “White Outgroup Intolerance and Declining Support for American Democracy.” Their study finds a correlation between white American’s intolerance, and support for authoritarian rule. In other words, when intolerant white people fear democracy may benefit marginalized people, they abandon their commitment to democracy.

Miller and Davis used information from the World Values Survey, a research project organized by a worldwide network of social scientists which polls individuals in numerous countries on a wide range of beliefs and values. Based on surveys from the United States, the authors found that white people who did not want to have immigrants or people of different races living next door to them were more likely to be supportive of authoritarianism. For instance, people who said they did not want to live next door to immigrants or to people of another race were more supportive of the idea of military rule, or of a strongman-type leader who could ignore legislatures and election results.

The World Values Survey data used is from the period 1995 to 2011 — well before Donald Trump’s 2016 run for president. It suggests, though, that Trump’s bigotry and his authoritarianism are not separate problems, but are intertwined. When Trump calls Mexicans “rapists,” and when he praises authoritarian leaders, he is appealing to the same voters.

Miller and Davis’ paper quotes alt right, neo-fascist leader Richard Spencer, who in a 2013 speech declared: “We need an ethno-state so that our people can ‘come home again’… We must give up the false dreams of equality and democracy.” Ethnic cleansing is impossible as long as marginalized people have enough votes to stop it. But this roadblock disappears if you get rid of democracy. Spencer understands that white rule in the current era essentially requires totalitarianism. That’s the logic of fascism.

Blah blah blabbity blah.

There was a time when I would spend some time working on a rebuttal, but you don’t need me to explain why bullshit is bullshit. Only a deranged leftist would fall for something as stupid as this.

    Every time I think the Left has crossed the Rubicon of crazy, they find another river.

  2. lyn says:

    Calling me white is racist.

  3. lyn says:

    I feel pretty tolerant until people want to take my God-given rights away.

  4. BjornTheBorg says:

    If I had the time and inclination, I might look through the supporting data and methodology to see how well the study holds up. There is surely some reason to think that there is a positive correlation between white racism and support for authoritarianism (cf. the “Unite the Right” rally and its associated pro-Nazi images). But from the fact that white racists have fascist tendencies, it hardly follows that all white Trump supporters are racists. I’ll happily admit that white racists preferred Trump to Clinton by very wide margins, but that says (almost) nothing about how much of Trump’s support among whites can be chalked up to racism.

    Nice response to Amy’s crazy tweet (see previous post):

    • Lulu says:

      Amy is one of the ones paid by Soros. She wants her check.

      • Lulu says:

        She is head of The New Agenda non-profit which is the kind of scam that Soros dumps money into. They got their marching orders or no moolah.

  6. Lulu says:

    Does anyone else think the ON-OFF-ON Korea stuff is a big diversion driving the media/Progs wild and they are completely ignoring the OIG/Hillary/FBI/Email implosion coming up. While Trump is doing negotiating 101 with China/NORKS, the media has dropped a lot of the disinformation campaign about the collusion/Russia/BS crap and run with Trump screwed up with NK. The media/DEMS/GOPe cannot chew gum and walk at the same time. They still run off screaming with flappy hands whenever he yells Squirrel!

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think this is too.

      • swanspirit says:

        WUT!!!! There was a Valerie Jarrett joke from Rosanne, and I missed it!?! Darn it, I would have enjoyed that!

      • Lulu says:

        Oh very much yes! The trade stuff with China and NAFTA/Canada/Mexico is about to go big but the media will be all Roseanne RACISM! The media keep making themselves extraneous with such YUGE and momemtous issues going on but they keep chasing other media (Roseanne is a television media story) stories instead of extremely important legal (OIG), foreign affairs (NORKS/China/Iran) and trade (NAFTA/China) stories. The US media can only cover piddly-ass nothing stuff.

    • Constance says:

      I’m praying that what you suggest is what is going down.

  11. BjornTheBorg says:

    Looks like Roseanne just got canned:

    I’m sure the SJWs are happy now.

  12. votermom says:

    ABC cancelled Roseanne.

  13. Myiq2xu™ says:

  14. DandyTIger says:

    And as it turns out, the Roseanne cancelation fits perfectly with the theme of this post. All the Left can see is race and racism.

    Supreme Court lets Arkansas abortion restrictions stand for now

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court refused Tuesday to block an Arkansas law targeting medication abortions, which threatens to leave the state with only one abortion clinic.

    Without comment or objections from the liberal justices, the court turned away Planned Parenthood’s initial challenge to the 2015 law. A federal trial court judge had blocked it as an undue burden on women seeking abortions, but an appeals court said opponents first needed to estimate how many women would be affected.

  16. Myiq2xu™ says:

    • taw46 says:

      Roseanne should have never apologized, because they were going after her no matter what.

      • taw46 says:

        Because it happened so fast, I think they wanted her gone anyway. Probably were getting lots of complaints from the left about her show. Unfortunately, Roseanne gave them a reason to fire her.

        • lateblum says:

          I think you’re right, taw. I think the Left did want her to be done. I’m really disappointed that the show is gone. I’m also disappointed that she fed into their definition of “Trump supporter” and “white supremacist” with her ValJar joke. It really wasn’t that joke-y.

          • DeniseVB says:

            My bad I laughed at it 😉 Also, more reasons for putting Roseanne’s head on a pike….

          • taw46 says:

            Denise, I laughed too. I despise VJ, so I don’t give a damn what anyone says about her. And besides, they say the most disgusting things about the right (just look at @FLOTUS timeline), then cry when one of their’s gets hit. I’m with Kurt Schlichter, “their rules”.

          • taw46 says:

            But she had to know she was a target for the left, that tweet did it.

          • lateblum says:


          • Lulu says:

            Disney was embarrassed by the success and that it appealed to NORMAL people. They were looking to kill it. Making money means nothing to Disney/ABC/ESPN or they would not put the shit on that they do. Kill the stock price and all of that would change.

        • blowme0bama says:

          She should have called her a rat facr instead. For some reasom, leftists think black people look like gorillas. Never understood that.

      • 49erDweet says:

        So it turns out that because there actually is no ‘scientific’ basis for RACE that the word “racism” has been hijacked and now stands for “cultural racism”, which is loosely defined as “anything snowflakes say it means”.

  17. swanspirit says:

    Well, I guess I didn’t miss the joke about Valerie Jarrett, after all. Too bad they cancelled Rosanne, it is so hypocritical, Wanda Sykes has made worse jokes for years, so ha be plenty of black comedians.
    Guess I will go watch an old movie. White Chicks might be on. J/K you couldn’t pay me to watch it.

      then there’s this…

      • John Denney says:

        I reached for a sugar packet in the corporate break room and there was none. The supplies were under lock-and-key, delegated to the receptionist, so I went to her.
        She was young, black, and very cute, and two guys were flirting with her when she saw me approach, and she asked, “Do you need something?”
        “Sugar?”, I replied.
        She rolled her eyes and returned her attention back to the flirters. After they left, she sees me waiting patiently off to the side and says to me severely with a frown, “You still here?”
        “There’s no sugar left in the break room.”
        “Oh! You really DID want sugar!”
        Then I remembered hearing my cousin’s Southern wife say, “Come here, Baby, and give me some sugar!”, and it dawned on me why she rolled her eyeballs at first.

    BEYOND PARODY! Andrea Mitchell found the ‘PERFECT person’ to weigh in on Roseanne controversy

    Boy, Andrea Mitchell sure is shocked by Roseanne’s racist “joke” about Valerie Jarrett. She’s just beside herself, you guys. She needs to talk to someone who understands the gravity of the situation.

    Naturally, she’s turning to … Joy Reid?

  21. taw46 says:

  22. elliesmom says:

    ABC has cancelled Roseanne. When do they cancel Jimmy Kimmel?

  23. mothy2017 says:

    valeria the skank DOES look like an ugly Zira.

  24. DeniseVB says:

    She seems nice, worked with Roseanne too.

    • lateblum says:

      or Colbert or Maher.
      Or is it just when posted on Twitter and not seen by as many people as those who watch those racist, hateful late-night *hosts* ?

  27. taw46 says:

    I watched Roseanne show a few times the first go around, but not at all this time. For me it is all about the double standard, we can say it but you can’t. So ABC and the left are giddy high-fiving one another that she’s gone. But so are a lot of people who worked on that show. And they probably all share the left’s politics. I don’t see any on the left expressing regrets about that.

    • lyn says:

      The Left does not care about collateral damage.

      My Trump temple coin arrived today. It’s yuge!

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      My first thought was that is means quite a few jobs and the yep – the double standard.

      When I saw the blip on cancellation, at first thought it was for calling Barry and Moo Moo grifters with their Netflix shell game. I guess this was another tweet.

      I have watched the original in reruns at times and have not seen the reboot but I gather the show was popular and making money for Disney. So I guess they take a $$$ loss in order to keep their crazed prog creds.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I never watched Last Man Standing but couldn’t understand why a high ratings show with a solid fan base would not be renewed. I’ll probably check it out during it’s re-birth 😉

  28. Underwhelmed says:

    All they’re doing is putting fireworks and a marching band on display, to highlight their rampant hypocrisy. Normals will notice.

  29. Myiq2xu™ says:

    If it weren’t for double standards the Left would have no standards at all.

  30. Dora says:

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      And we intended to take those crumbs back because we need them to help the MS-13 gangsters to bring their ummmmmm – friends and family – that’s it – to live off your efforts – so the DNC can get their votes..

      No one likes to be TOLD what their morals are supposed to be without asking them. Especially by scumbags, sexual abusers, money grubbers, manipulators, selfish assholes, virtue signaling do-nothings, etc. Adults decide these issues themselves without a f’ing media company doing it when their own ethics/morals are garbage.

  34. Myiq2xu™ says:

    ABC was embarrassed by their hit show. The Roseanne reboot was supposed to be a one-and-done, but then it took off and they couldn’t cancel the #1 show.

    Today she gave them an excuse to fire her. Now they can tell their shareholders that the firing wasn’t about Trump.

  35. Myiq2xu™ says:

    I had to get off Twitter for a while. Otherwise I’ll get banned for saying what I really think.

    I can’t remember the German word for “A face in need of a fist” but that is Frenchy the NeverTrump Chihuahua.

      280 Roseanne re-runs pulled from Paramount network, TV Land and CMT. Good Lord.
      She is being made an un-person. This is truly Soviet.
      But all TEH RACISMS!!!111!
      And TEH TRUMPIODS!!11!!

      • jeffhas says:

        Even murdering criminals are given a chance to rehabilitate and re-enter society, in fact we are FORCED to rehabilitate the criminal and accept them back,

        … but Roseanne, just ‘disappeared’.

        F*ck them. I hope Roseanne goes on tour and I’ll go buy tickets to see her as often as I can.

      Disney down 2.5% isn’t enough… they need to be down more before they stop and think about the consequences of their actions (how would that be for ironic?)

  37. votermom says:

    Just saw a post that even the old seasons of Roseaare being pulled from the rerun channels.
    Goodness, way to overreact.

    • Constance says:

      The Fascists are marching in from the left. They can’t help themselves they have to forcibly suppress opposing views and criticism. As was pointed out by Lateblum above Roseanne’s tweet was seen by far more people than see the late night anti Trump shows which the left thinks are funny and clever and the Media Cartel just can’t take that. I just don’t feel this is the end of Roseanne’s influence.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’ve never seen Twitter in such a meltdown. Everything is racist, racist, RACIST, and SHUT UP RACIST! I don’t think Roseanne is a racist, otherwise why did she script a black wife and child for her son DJ ?

  38. swanspirit says:

    Totally. OT from my friend Stuart Mitchell, the composer, my favorite piece, The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, from his Seven Wonders Suite, which has since been recorded with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. He has just been diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer, so if you have a spare prayer.

    • lateblum says:

      I’m so sorry for your friend and his diagnosis. Such a shame. My brother’s MIL was dx’d with the same last summer. She is the most wonderful woman. I understand what you might be going through just now. This music is simply beautiful. I’’m so grateful to have heard it. Thank you.

  41. elliesmom says:

    The BFF and her husband were our house guests this weekend. I was tired of the “she gets to talk about politics, but I can’t respond” so I broke the rules. When She Who Lives in Not One, But Two Gated Communities said that walls and fences don’t do any good to keep people out, I, As Someone Who Can’t Find Her House Keys to Even Lock Her Door, suggested we invite Mexico to become part of the USA. We’d get Mexico’s full range of population instead of mostly poor people, lots of natural resources, beautiful coastlines, and a southern border wall that’s already built. It’s about 3 times the population of California so we could divide it into 4 states, East, West, South, and North Mexico. Our little holy than thou liberal was totally disgusted with that idea. I think the word she was looking for was “shithole”.
    Having survived that, we moved onto Texas trying to block women from getting abortions by setting up rules that are impossible for clinics to meet. I asked her if she would go to an oral surgeon who had an office with halls too narrow for an ambulance crew or where the surgeon had no admiiting privileges at a hospital should she turn out to have an acute reaction during the procedure? Of course she wouldn’t. It wouldn’t be safe. Since we were promised abortion would be made “safe, legal, and rare”, Texas is only trying to keep the pledge.
    We were about to start on “Money is fungible” when the rest of my dinner guest started to arrive. She was here two more days. We’re still good friends. She didn’t bring up politics or dump on Trump again. I Alinsky-ed her.

      I bow to you em ! Glad you had a nice weekend anyhow 😉

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

      I am always amazed at how many of my colleagues, be they administrators, clinical, or support, that give a total pass when abortion is the subject as if it is “special” and does not need to adhere to even the most basic levels of cleanliness let alone quality of care. They even get upset if it is suggested such clinics at least meet hair salon requirements. Oh no – that would keep people away. Heaven forbid you mention any qualifications for staff or question the ethics of the money grubbing docs who show up for hearings in Lamborghinis but with dirty fingernails.

    • Dora says:

    Which cast members stuffed Roseanne under the bus?

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I would watch to see if anyone gets a lucrative deal elsewhere.

      Meanwhile, I see MGM Grand has gotten into the act and canceled on her. This is really way beyond rational at this point. It is clear it has nothing to do with a rather soft tweet and is a message that people should not stray from the ranch or there will be consequences.

      • DeniseVB says:

        That’s not a good PR move for MGM Grand. I follow a closed group on FB called Roseanne Obsessed and they are! Rabid fans to the scary groupie obsessed level. They travel hundreds of miles to watch her stand-up shows. They’d sell their firstborns for a ticket. That’s who buys tickets to her shows and she sells them all out. This will be fun watching them burn that hotel down, bwaahahaha 😉

  43. Island Girl says:

    I think Roseanne or however it’s spelled has some goods on the rat face Obama’s roommate for some 25 years or so, she must be destroyed.

      He’ll still get to vote Dem anyway.

  47. DandyTIger says:

    What’s really interesting about the Roseanne event is how fast and severe were the reactions of the Left institutions (hollywood, tech, and media). She told a bad, easily interpreted as racist, joke. It’s pretty clear she’s not racist. And it was one stupid tweet. And she has a history of being an idiot like this and going a bit over the top. But she supports Trump. And she had a platform to influence. So any opportunity to completely destroy her was already on the Left’s agenda. How fast and thoroughly this was done is the interesting news here. It tells you where the Left is. They’re at war. And they will go to great lengths to enact their revenge and push their agenda.

  48. Dora says:

    It’s all Trump’s fault! Didn’t we know this was coming?

    Justice Dept. IG, key FBI officials slated for Capitol Hill appearances as Clinton email report looms

    • Lulu says:

      I can’t decide what Grassley’s hearing portends. Is he giving the DOJ/FBI a way to save face? Is he giving the OIG a forum to get the dirty news out? I doubt I will watch since all Senate hearings now are R: How dare you sir! Have you no honor!?! and D: Let me blow you please since you met Bronco once. But the OIG report has to come out before the hearing so the Senate staff has a chance to read it and write stupid questions for their Senators so it will drop probably this Friday is my guess.

  51. DandyTIger says:

    • Lulu says:

      There is definitely something a little off about Roseanne’s firing. She doesn’t sound all that upset. More “oh well”. Then it is pro forma “sorry” and is kind of “I’m sorry I dropped that cake on your head” sorry not THAT sorry. Then she is Ambien tweeting.

      She and I are the same age. I don’t think she was enjoying it, ABC was going to shift it to more SJW junk, and it was more work than she wanted to do at her age and recent past was used to doing. I can relate. So she blew it up. LOL. Also she didn’t LIKE a bunch of the people she was dealing with. Just sayin’.

  52. votermom says:

    TV nooz – by cancelling Roseanne, ABC stands to lose millions in ads and will have a gaping hole in fall lineup. So, silver lining.

    • Lulu says:

      I read that Mooch Obama called ABC prezzie and demanded she be fired for insulting her permanent house guest and girlfriend RatFace. Who knows? But Disney/ABC/ESPN always does the virtue signaling move.
