Liberal columnist melts down over Trump’s ‘real resonance’ with Americans

New York Times columnist Mara Gay fretted about former President Donald Trump’s “real resonance” with Americans Friday.

“At a time when we could have very important debates over climate change, over how to make the economy work for everyday Americans and make sure our kids can do better than our parents did, or even fix the gun control laws so that our children aren’t being mowed down, why are we still talking about this dystopia?” Gay asked a MSNBC panel. “Because the fears that Donald Trump and the radical Republicans are playing to have very real resonance with Americans.”

Trump said in a Thursday video the biggest threat the United States faced was “some of the horrible, U.S.A. hating people that represent us” and the “abolition of our national borders.”

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) encountered over 2.3 million migrants in fiscal year 2022, while another 600,000 migrants evaded CBP that fiscal year, Fox News reported. CBP reported encountering 230,000 people in October, the first month of fiscal year 2023, another 233,470 people in November, the second month of fiscal year 2023 and over 250,000 in December.

“This is the language not just of dystopia, but of fascism, of white supremacy. This is coded language, and I think it’s really important that we just kind of break down what that means. In this case, say to Donald Trump, what America are you talking about that is this greatest threat to Western civilization? What is it? Is it pluralism?” Gay asked. “Is it the fact that immigrants want to still come here, as you pointed out, Joe? Is it the fact that there are thriving cities in the United States that are filled with a diverse group of people that’s a threat?”

Trump denounced white supremacy on multiple occasions, including after violent protests in Charlottesville over the planned removal of statues in August 2017.

Former President Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.

This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.

This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.

Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.

That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
