Letter to the Editor, June 2020
The demographic profile of the American protestors is indicative. Predominantly late teens and millennials. Multi-ethnic, mainly urban, well-educated, with affluent backgrounds. Pre-destined for professional careers, present circumstances notwithstanding.
Professor Glayde Whitney once told me that American school children are subjected to relentless brainwashing about the putative benefits of mass immigration and multiculturalism. The upshot is that in the absence of countervailing influences, they are rabidly anti-Trump. They doubtless voted for “crooked” Hillary. They support safe spaces, no platform for “fascists” and the “de-colonising” of the curriculum i.e. censorship. And, like the Isis iconoclasts, they advocate the destruction or removal of politically incorrect statuary.
Meanwhile, the 62 million Americans in “fly over country” who elected Donald Trump have almost no voice in the fake news, main-stream media. And here in the UK, public school educated commentators such as Jon Snow and Emily Maitlis (married to an investment manager), virtue signal about black oppression from the safety of gated communities. They encourage British Blacks to emulate their enraged American counterparts.
Prediction and conclusion; the “Donald” to be re-elected with an increased majority. The liberal-left are now the stupid party. Once again, they are playing into Trump’s hands. He will swallow Zombie candidate Joe Biden whole. And, all in all, “The justice of it pleases”.
