Trump’s Victory: A Historical Upset

[Source] I have to admit it. I fully did NOT expect Donald Trump to become the 45th President of the United States of America. All of the odds were against him: He was underfunded compared to Hillary’s money machine; Nearly every media source was openly against him; Not one major celebrity came out to support him; He was labeled a racist and a misogynist; All leading figures of his own party abandoned him; Much of his policies were in direct opposition with the aims of the globalist elite; Robert DeNiro said he wanted to punch him in the face.

Despite all of this, Trump won. While Hillary had the entire establishment behind her – including elite organizations such as the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations – she did not win. How did this happen? Is this a ‘rebellion against the elite’ as some journalists claimed … or it the elite placing the perfect fall guy for things to come?

One thing is for sure, one voice was heard loudly: Conservative White people from rural areas. Looking at the electoral map, Trump won nearly 100% of the areas corresponding to this demographic. Did they feel that their current government pandered to every possible minority while leaving them out to dry? Did they feel that the liberal values promoted by the Democrats went too far against their Conservative outlook? Did they feel that the American ‘race’ was being diluted by a steady stream of illegal immigrants? Did they reject the tolerant attitude of the government versus Islam? Answering yes to any combination of these questions lead to a vote for Trump.

While media around the world writes pages upon pages analyzing the results of this election, one single word could sum up the entire thing: “Visceral”.

Trump’s electorate had a visceral reaction to Trump and an opposite visceral reaction to Clinton. Electing Trump was a move that came from the guts and the instincts rather than rational calculations. Trump never engaged into complex policies or presented spreadsheets full of numbers. He simply represented, by who he was, the opposite of things his voters were clearly sick of seeing.

Trump was at odds with the ‘liberal agenda’ in mass media, with internalization of borders citizenship, with political correctness, with ‘social justice warriors’ and with the agenda of globalist forces (he even brought up George Soros by name during the campaign). Trump did not promise numbers and new policies as much as he promised to rid America from things he describes as parasitic, whether it be big government, illegal aliens, foreign countries requiring aid, etc. This provoked a visceral positive reaction from a demographic base whose motto could easily be “Get off my lawn or I’ll shoot ya”.
