An Albany professor is clearly struggling with an advanced form of TDS, so much so that she’s now painting Trump supporters as completely and utterly racist, violent, and blindly stupid in their love for Trump – so much so that they will demand Trump gets a third term or they will riot and have to be put down by the use of state violence to maintain order.
At least that’s how this reads to me:
FOX NEWS – A women’s studies professor predicts President Trump’s supporters, whom she calls “overt racists,” will “provoke violence” when Trump leaves the Oval Office – even if it is after two terms.
Julie Novkov, chair of the political science department at the State University of New York at Albany, concludes in a recent article for New Political Science that Trump supporters having political power is “dangerous.”
She defines core Trump supporters as overt racists who view immigrants, blacks, Muslims, and Jews as “enemies of the American state” and are “particularly inclined to embrace propaganda.”
The public university professor argues there are no good options for the country with Trump supporters in power.
“At best it might shift some areas of the country back to the political configuration common in some areas of the American south in the 1920s,” she wrote, “when gaudy populist racism vied with conservative, racist legitimation projects for hegemony entirely within the Democratic Party.”
The alternative, Novkov argues, is that Trumpers “could provoke violence and place the nation in the position of having to engage in its violent suppression.”
Whether it is impeachment, resignation, failure to win re-election, or death, Novkov believes Trump supporters will riot when he leaves office.
“I believe that Trumpers – the core supporters Trump has bound to himself through his consistent and persistent messaging – will not accept as legitimate any means through which he departs from the presidency,” Novkov wrote. “Can the Trumpers can be reincorporated into a democratic republic as engaged political actors who accept the fundamental premises of democratic governance?”
She argued that even if Trump finishes a second term as president, “they will vociferously demand that he be permitted a third term,” adding that if their response is violent, “state violence will be necessary in response to maintain order.”
This is ridiculous paranoid nonsense. She’s just another liberal elitist professor who sees the middle of the country as ‘fly over country’, who hates the common man and considers him as dumb as dirt.
It reminds me of what Obama said back in 2008 about the bitter clingers: “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
And this sorry excuse for an college educator is suggesting that Trump supporters are so dumb and in love with Trump that they will reject democracy and ‘vociferously demand” Trump get a third term or there will be epic violence. I mean what the hell?
The arrogance and condescension of people like Novkov knows no bounds. They see themselves as our betters and would have us all bow down to their intellect and thus their political ambitions to do what’s right for people who don’t know how to take care of themselves. To them, we are just babies in a high chair needing to be spoon fed.
