During Wednesday’s post-debate coverage on MSNBC, documentary propagandist Michael Moore declared that he wants to “get rid of that which gave us Trump” — meaning white working class men.
“Job one for the election next year is to make sure that we not only get rid of Trump or Trump’s replacement, but we get rid of that which gave us Trump,” Moore said. “That’s really what the real issue should be.”
“[T]he majority of the working class actually are women, people of color and young people are paid the least,” he continued. “So, when we say working class, it’s always, we’re always evoking this image of Lunch Bucket Joe. The actual working class of 2019 is a 30-year-old black woman. That’s really the working class… I want everybody to always think, now, that’s a 30-year-old black woman, because that is what the working class is.”
Yes, the working class includes women, “people of color,” and young people, but Moore’s aim is the demonization of conservative white men, a message he has pushed consistently in his career as a demagogue.
