Trumpism Has Nothing to Do With Trump

Of course he got booed. Trumpism has nothing to do with Trump. He unwittingly tapped into it. Since Nixon’s southern strategy, Republican politicians have been using racist dog whistles to solidify their shitty racist base. Trump, not one for subtleties, used an air raid siren instead of a whistle. And they finally could once again be out and proud about believing that the US is for straight white guys and fuck everyone else. Those Trump flags you see streaming from pickup trucks are nothing more than neo-confederate flags.

It’s all about being against anything those brown/gay/abortionist loving liberals stand for.
