Response to geek tragedy (Reply #17)

Thu Jun 2, 2016, 07:05 AM

26. Our party has been talking the same crap about why white men keep voting Republican for decades.

 

Yes for a small minority it is indeed racism and sexism, but for a huge swathe of working class white men its purely because they don't feel represented by either party and the Republicans aren't the ones who sit and insult them regularly by calling them racists and sexists.

Why exactly do you think populist movements keep attracting that demographic? It's because they generally feel like no-one is listening to their problems and that when they try and raise their issues they're told by Dems that they're self entitled and privileged and that they should shut up while real problems are addressed.

We lose tens of millions of votes every election because of this short sighted stupidity.
