Was “white-lash” behind Trump's White House win?

Post-U.S. election, the newest word coined is “white-lash”. It rhymes with “white trash” and kinda sounds like an ivory-coloured whip but it’s a term used by some on the left to blame American Caucasians for screwing up Billary’s coronation.

This pithy buzz word comes courtesy of CNN’s Van Jones, clearly devastated by the will of the American people. Trying to make sense of what happened on election night, Jones said:

“People have talked about a miracle [but] I’m hearing about a nightmare. This was a white-lash. This was a white-lash against a changing country. It was a white-lash against a black president in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes.”

Barack Obama won two terms in that same predominantly-white US of A so if the “white-lash” factor was real, Obama never would’ve made it into the White House.

And wasn’t Donald Trump’s opponent also Caucasian? Race and gender were irrelevant. If Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were white males, I’d wager Tuesday’s result would’ve been the same.

Progressives have told us terms that use the word “black” in a negative context are an unconscious and passive form of racism, so why is a 100% racially-based term such as “white-lash” okay?

I guess there’s a different standard applied when a pejorative term is directed at Caucasians.

Could this prevailing attitude that embraces double standards steeped in hypocrisy be part of the reason Hillary lost?

I’d say yes, that, and people expressing disdain for elitism at every level was the reason for the election result. Voters wanted an alternative, and they got it.

On both counts this is absurd….Donald Trump is refered to by his detractors as “the orange orangutang” and Hillary is destined to wear orange coveralls…and as everybody knows “orange is the new black”………:-)

Van Jones is the Malcolm X of the black rights movement. Wasn’t he fired or demoted by Obama?

The American Left/Progressives have always been racists and losers . . .

American “Progressives” of the late 19th and early 20th century were not only Leftists but they were also war-glorifying militarists. Hitler got not only his eugenic ideas from American Leftists but even his ideas about war being a purification of the national spirit etc. And who was it who said this?
“Conformity will be the only virtue and any man who refuses to conform will have to pay the penalty.”

Was it Adolf? It sounds very much like either Adolf or Mussolini at the height of their powers but it was in fact said while both Hitler and Mussolini were still in the trenches of World War I and it was said by the President of the United States, the arch-Progressive Woodrow Wilson. See here for that and many other ways (including book-burning) in which Adolf learnt from American leftists. History can be very surprising. Loberfeld’s short history of progressivism has more on its militaristic aspects.

Wilson even foreshadowed Hitler’s racism. Note this quote about his actions in 1912:

“Upon taking power in Washington, Wilson and the many other Southerners he brought into his cabinet were disturbed at the way the federal government went about its own business. One legacy of post-Civil War Republican ascendancy was that Washington’s large black populace had access to federal jobs, and worked with whites in largely integrated circumstances. Wilson’s cabinet put an end to that, bringing Jim Crow to Washington. Wilson allowed various officials to segregate the toilets, cafeterias, and work areas of their departments”.

I watched CNN for 2 minutes on election night. They had a panel of 10 for Hillary and the same for Trump They were all respectfully discussing the issues and Van Jones stands up, starts yelling and screaming like he is going to punch them out. I don’t know why he still has a job if he can’t control himself on the air.

Centrist that is how many feel about Justin, we are not beating people up and causing chaos. And they are whining because they lost, they are pathetic infants and you damn well know it. Look at the stats for Obama he was not ready for the job, they are kissing his ass.

Yeah us damn white people should just be happy to be shit on and vilified for every other ethnic groups failures. How dare we wish to stop losing our jobs and freedoms, we are so unreasonable.

I think in addition to protesting the governments, we need to start showing up at the offices of CBC, CTV and Global. And we need to go after those who are advertising through them, and stop using their services, wherever possible. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Conservatives are not normally troublemakers. But if we want to save our country and our freedoms, we need to organize and counter these leftist terrorist tactics. We need to do this in every major city, and be unrelenting, like the traitors and bullies who are causing the problems. Let’s go after the rats, and expose them!

I really need some clarification for——- WHITE lash— is racist ? BLACK lash—— is noble?
commented 2016-11-13 17:33:40 -0500
So Centrist Libertarian, oxymoronic name that it is, you are saying head of government is not an entry level job. Put aside the fact that Trump is hardly looking for an entry level position being an economist who also multiplied his Million dollar legacy more than 1000 fold, we will grant entry level just to be nice to you.

Your point then is that Baby Doc should definitely not be P/M, having only an education degree, no previous job experience and took his million dollar legacy and multiplied it by 0.9, because it is his entry level job. Further by your premise, all conservatives and dippers should have immediately taken to the streets vandalizing, stealing and assaulting on Oct 20 because Baby Doc was elected with only 38.7%.

Have I clearly stated your argument?

Liberals can come with catchy slogans, nicknames and rhymes , just like kids on the playground.
But when it comes to sound policy and reasoning they’re just like kids on the playground.

Van Jones the one that is so afflicted by climate change wants to move America out of the dirty coal energy and go with windmill and solar panel, this guy is an aggressive lunatic

@ Centrist Libertarian who said, “JIM NORWOOD They’re not protesting because he won. They are protesting because they believe he’s not qualified for the job. In other words Trump is no more qualified to be president Of The United Stes then I am. The candidates were a corrupt but competent career politician and a man-child who can’t watch his mouth.”

It makes no difference the reason why they are violently protesting.

The fact of the matter is that they are not accepting the democratic results of the election.

Are you not able to grasp that, Centrist?

Van Jones is a CPUSA affiliated agitator with a b***h face. That’s why Jughead gave him the Green Czar position which he held until it started leaking out how inappropriate he was to be anywhere near the reins of government. This ahole should just shut his trap. What he is doing now is inciting with a BS narrative and if people die, any and all of these media types should be held fully accountable.

Centrist Retardarian, you really are a brainless twit. Radical Islam lost an ally in Killary. Trump will destroy Radical Islam. Now crawl back under your rock loser. I will now trigger you:

TRUMP is PRESIDENT!!!

Since 11/09 – IN THE NAME OF WINGNUTS (DUMMY-YEAH): President Of The United States had become an entry-level job and that inevitably resulted in death to America. Radical Islam has finally got it’s wish.

If this nonsense is ever going to stop they have to find a way to go after Soros et al with investigations and what ever it takes to cut off the funding. This is bordering on an act of war. Clear cut crimes against sovereign countries. Everybody knows who is behind it but nothing is being done about it.

Centrist Retardarian, Trump is not qualified according to whom? You and your useless butt hurt snowflake Liberal whiners can move to Mexico or the Middle East if you can’t handle an outsider running the country. It will be the best thing to happen to the world. Times are a changin and they are for the good of everyone. Fuck off loser.

Before the election when Trump was asked if he would accept the result, He said he would wait and see. Hillary in response said she was horrified that he wasn’t ready to accept democracy. Now that Trump has won, the lefties are rioting over the result. Where is the horrified Hillary? Typical hypocrite liberals.
