Journalist Spells Out Why Trump Will Be President In The Most America Hating Way

Steven W. Thrasher, the 2012 Journalist of the Year by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association and writer-at-large for The Guardian, predicts in the video above that Donald Trump will be president because America’s “white supremacist” history “dictates it.”

The video’s description reads: “Every bold advancement of progress in the United States is met by a racist backlash, says Steven Thrasher. So, he argues, it would make complete sense if Donald Trump became the next president. Until 2043, when America is mostly non-white, true political revolution will not come.”

According to Thrasher, this racist backlash that will push Trump into the White House began with Obama’s election. “When we voted against the odds to elect the first black president eight years ago, when we had a clear symbol that the country is literally becoming more black, why shouldn’t we have expected his successor to the meanest, whitest, most vile bigot possible.”

Thrasher adds that like many presidents before him, Trump will “continue our American tradition of leaders to expand the empire through the suffering of people of color.”

“I’m waiting for the year 2043 when this white supremacist nation becomes mostly non-white.”

“I’m waiting for the year 2043 when this white supremacist nation becomes mostly non-white,” Thrasher condescendingly exclaims. “That’s when true political revolution might be possible. But till then, in its final 27 years, some of the dying white majority are so desperate to hold onto their dwindling power it’ll come as no surprise when they follow history’s powder and elect a reactionary, racist, sexist man. And that’s why a Trump presidency would be as historically American as the bald eagle, indigenous genocide, the three-fifths clause, mass incarceration, and apple pie.”
