Progressives in crisis over Trump's landslide victory in Iowa

The left-wing journalistic elite has gone so far as to claim that Republican voters want a fascist government.

The primaries have begun, and Donald Trump has achieved a resounding victory in Iowa. The former president obtained 51% of the votes. The result has unleashed a kind of crisis among progressives, who call Trump a fascist and who cannot understand how the candidate they consider to be "extreme right" and who has several investigations against him gets such overwhelming support from Republican voters.

The concern of progressives has increased in recent months as they cannot understand why, with more accusations, support for Trump increases. And the numbers are also swelled with votes from Hispanics and the Afro-descendant community!

Are Trump voters fascists?

That's why the nature of the attacks on Trump has changed. Before, it was a bunch of insults and mainly lies about the former president; now, it's about insults to voters. These progressive journalism figures have no qualms about stating that Trump voters want a fascist government and that they continue to support him because they are racists and feel that the country belongs only to "white Christians."

Curiously, the progressive elite that questions Trump voters seems not to be very aware of the inflation or crime that overwhelms the working class every day. Perhaps their large salaries and life as stars and intellectuals do not allow them to understand that millions of people are living through difficult economic times and that, far from lofty false ideologies of superiority, what they think about every day is how to give a better life to their families.

Leisure time and economic comfort allow the elite to think about matters that the middle and lower classes do not even have time to consider. The Iowa worker who gets up early every morning to try to give his family a better life does not think that he has more rights in this country than someone black, and that is why he is going to vote for Trump. These ideas only occur to the stars of leftist journalism, who do not experience the economic crisis and who, therefore, have to develop strange hypotheses - a product of all the indoctrination in their heads - to explain the vote for Trump.

There is no growth of fascist ideas in the United States. There are a lot of people who miss the prosperity and security that existed in the Trump period. That is why support for the former president is increasing even among Hispanics.

On Monday night, after Trump's rapid and resounding victory was announced, MSNBC journalist Rachel Maddow went so far as to affirm that people vote Republican because they want a fascist form of government. "If we are worried about the rise of authoritarianism in this country, we are worried about potential rise of fascism in this country, we're worried about our democracy falling to an authoritarian and potentially fascist form of government. The leader who is trying to do that is part of that equation, but people want that."

Then, her attack was directed at voters, who are fascists, the journalist believes. "There is an authoritarian movement inside Republican politics that isn't being bamboozled by Trump. They are pushing Trump to get more and more extreme because the more extreme things he says, the more they adhere to it. And that is coming from a very large proportion of the American right."

"In Iowa they vote for Trump because they are white and Christian"

Meanwhile, Joy Reid, also on MSNBC, complained about the number of white Christians living in Iowa and presented the issue as a problem. "This is a state that is over represent over represented by white Christians." She explained that about 61% of Iowa's population are white Christians, "particularly we talk about evangelical Christians."

"They see themselves as the rightful inheritors of this country, and Trump has promised to give it back to them," she said. She then explains, very concerned, that the race and religion of the voters are the reason why the issues that concern her, such as "Trump's electability," do not affect those who continue to support Trump. "None of that matters when you believe that God has given you this country (…) and that everyone who is not a white conservative Christian is a fraudulent American," she said.

The nervous breakdowns and attacks of this progressive elite are increasingly worrying. Explaining the significant vote for Trump by calling those who support him racists and fascists is, at the very least, nonsense entirely far from reality. It is incredible to see that these types of attacks on millions of voters have become normalized in major media outlets.

It is also worrying that the attacks are no longer directed primarily at Trump but at Americans and that it is not a difference in how we understand the country or the economic model we want, but rather the darts of this progressive elite seek to destroy morally to those who think differently. The discussion is no longer about whether someone is wrong or not but rather about whether that person is a fascist and hates minorities.

People tend to tolerate being called wrong much better than being judged as a bad person, and the left knows it. That's why they don't accuse people of being wrong but of being racist and fascist. Fortunately, their attack has been so fierce and lacking in arguments that many no longer even care about the labels that this progressive elite puts on them. Fundamentally, the issue is about the quality of life of each person. Journalists and prestigious analysts of the left can develop their crazy sociological theories, but the reality of an increasingly difficult economy explodes in front of ordinary Americans every day.
