I think it, like all other gripes that the
undereducated Right have in this country, they
all pretty much boil down to the same argument.
"I'm white, I'm privileged, and angry.
Because of my poor choices in life, my,
not focusing on my education, my not
bettering my personal skill set,
I have been left angry, underpaid, and outside
the realm of future economic gain.
And because I am mad, irrationally angry,
and frustrated, I am going to take it out
on everyone but the people who have caused
my condition. I'm going to yell about every
minority, every liberal politician, every
foreign non-white majority country, and I am
going to blame them for my condition, even though
none of them is at fault. I am going to do this,
because the alternative is far, far worse. I don't
want to face the reality that I have been a dolt, a fool,
and 'taken to the cleaners' by leaders and officials that
I trusted (republicans), who look like me, who attend the
same church as me, who have the same beliefs as me, BUT,
who in reality don't give a damn about me. I don't want
to face the reality that I have been had, that I am a fool,
that I AM AT FAULT for my own condition. And so I will
yell and rant and continue to blame everyone else that does
not look like or does not think like me. Because I am a child.
I refuse to grow up, and face the tough facts of life."
