Salena Zito & Stacy McCain and John Ruberry Explain Donald Trump in three posts

Zito’s point is so obvi­ous that I’m shocked the GOP hasn’t fig­ured it out

This moment is about what hap­pens when you spend an entire gen­er­a­tion ignor­ing the will, the wants and the needs of your peo­ple beyond cos­mopoli­tan America.

This is what hap­pens when vot­ers get tired of putting on their team jer­seys and sup­port­ing their side, but get noth­ing in return when that team wins.

This would be obvi­ous to any per­son who actu­ally inter­viewed a Trump sup­porter with­out com­ing to said inter­view with the premise “Why are you such an igno­rant racist hick?” instead of won­der­ing “Why haven’t the ‘main­stream’ can­di­dates both­ered to address these issues?

It’s also why the GOP risks destroy­ing itself by replac­ing Trump at the con­ven­tion defy­ing the will of the vot­ers who gave him suf­fi­cient pledged del­e­gates to win dur­ing the primaries.

Mean­while while the MSM still is alter­nat­ing between blam­ing police for their own mur­ders or using the vio­lence to push gun con­trol, but they are com­pletely ignor­ing that while Demo­c­rat activists claim Black Lives mat­ter, appar­ently that doesn’t apply to all black lives, par­tic­u­larly in Chicago:

In fact, on the day before the express­way protest a four-​year-​old Engle­wood boy was shot sev­eral times a mile away from that rally.

I wasn’t there but I will wager a siz­able sum of cash that none of the left­ists decried the shoot­ing of that boy. The peo­ple who live in the home where the 4-​year-​old lives believe their home is being tar­geted – they claim they don’t know by whom. In May a 53-​year-​old woman who lives in that house was wounded in a shoot­ing there.

One house – two shoot­ings – three months. Does any­one seri­ously believe that the Chicago Police is tar­get­ing this home?

Since New Year’s Day there have been 2,054 shoot­ings in Chicago312 of those shoot­ingswere fatal. The great major­ity of the vic­tims were African-​American as were likely the per­pe­tra­tors, although no one can say for sure because most “Chi­raq” mur­ders are street-​gang related and go unsolved.

Nor to they note their own edi­to­r­ial deci­sions, but Robert Stacy McCain does:

Peo­ple get shot all the time in Amer­ica, but CNN only pays atten­tion to shoot­ings that fit a cer­tain nar­ra­tive. The end­less car­nage of black-​on-​black vio­lent crime? Not news­wor­thy, accord­ing to CNN. More than 300 peo­ple have been shot to death in Chicago so far this year, and more than 250 of the vic­tims were black, but CNN ignores that blood­shed, because it can’t be exploited by “social jus­tice” activists blam­ing racist cops.

“So what I think is very impor­tant for you to under­stand just like there are rogue cops who shoot black peo­ple for sport.”
Angela Rye, CNN, July 8

“Turn off your TV!” I want to shout at peo­ple who let them­selves get worked into a frenzy over this stuff. “Cable news is mak­ing you crazy!”

No one ever seems to ques­tion the basic edi­to­r­ial deci­sions behind this kind of cov­er­age. More than 100 peo­ple were shot last week in Chicago, but that’s just another aver­age week in Chicago. Because this hap­pens rou­tinely, it is not news, and nobody cares:

Chicago, for all intents and pur­poses, is a “gun-​free zone.”
But all the state and city reg­u­la­tions asso­ci­ated with firearms in Chicago have failed to pro­duce a safe city, and these are the poli­cies that Pres­i­dent Obama and Sec­re­tary Clin­ton wish to extend to the rest of the country.

While CNN & Black lives mat­ter want to ignore these incon­ve­nient fact thanks to social media, their abil­ity to keep this infor­ma­tion from the pub­lic has been col­laps­ing although it’s not from the lack of effort in sus­pend­ing Stacy from Twitter.

And that why Don­ald Trump is ris­ing, because he bypasses those insti­tu­tions that choose to ignore real­i­ties that peo­ple are aware of.

Once you under­stand that, it’s pretty easy to fig­ure out.

Zito’s point is so obvious that I’m shocked the GOP hasn’t figured it out

This moment is about what happens when you spend an entire generation ignoring the will, the wants and the needs of your people beyond cosmopolitan America.

This is what happens when voters get tired of putting on their team jerseys and supporting their side, but get nothing in return when that team wins.

This would be obvious to any person who actually interviewed a Trump supporter without coming to said interview with the premise “Why are you such an ignorant racist hick?” instead of wondering “Why haven’t the ‘mainstream’ candidates bothered to address these issues?

It’s also why the GOP risks destroying itself by replacing Trump at the convention defying the will of the voters who gave him sufficient pledged delegates to win during the primaries.

Meanwhile while the MSM still is alternating between blaming police for their own murders or using the violence to push gun control, but they are completely ignoring that while Democrat activists claim Black Lives matter, apparently that doesn’t apply to all black lives, particularly in Chicago:

In fact, on the day before the expressway protest a four-year-old Englewood boy was shot several times a mile away from that rally.

I wasn’t there but I will wager a sizable sum of cash that none of the leftists decried the shooting of that boy.  The people who live in the home where the 4-year-old lives believe their home is being targeted–they claim they don’t know by whom. In May a 53-year-old woman who lives in that house was wounded in a shooting there.

One house–two shootings–three months. Does anyone seriously believe that the Chicago Police is targeting this home?

Since New Year’s Day there have been 2,054 shootings in Chicago–312 of those shootingswere fatal. The great majority of the victims were African-American as were likely the perpetrators, although no one can say for sure because most “Chiraq” murders are street-gang related and go unsolved.

 

Nor to they note their own editorial decisions, but Robert Stacy McCain does:

People get shot all the time in America, but CNN only pays attention to shootings that fit a certain narrative. The endless carnage of black-on-black violent crime? Not newsworthy, according to CNN. More than 300 people have been shot to death in Chicago so far this year, and more than 250 of the victims were black, but CNN ignores that bloodshed, because it can’t be exploited by “social justice” activists blaming racist cops.

“So what I think is very important for you to understand just like there are rogue cops who shoot black people for sport.”
Angela Rye, CNN, July 8

“Turn off your TV!” I want to shout at people who let themselves get worked into a frenzy over this stuff. “Cable news is making you crazy!”

No one ever seems to question the basic editorial decisions behind this kind of coverage. More than 100 people were shot last week in Chicago, but that’s just another average week in Chicago. Because this happens routinely, it is not news, and nobody cares:

Chicago, for all intents and purposes, is a “gun-free zone.”
But all the state and city regulations associated with firearms in Chicago have failed to produce a safe city, and these are the policies that President Obama and Secretary Clinton wish to extend to the rest of the country.

While CNN & Black lives matter want to ignore these inconvenient fact thanks to social media, their ability to keep this information from the public has been collapsing although it’s not from the lack of effort in suspending Stacy from Twitter.

And that why Donald Trump is rising, because he bypasses those institutions that choose to ignore realities that people are aware of.

Once you understand that, it’s pretty easy to figure out.
