Political commentator Max Boot is celebrating the prospect of a majority-minority America in the next few decades.
Boot, a fierce critic of the President, was aghast at Trump telling a “group of congresswomen of color to “go back” to where they came from” and calling his majority-minority district “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess,” where “no human being would want to live.”
Boot also criticized Trump for calling Al Sharpton a “con man” who “Hates Whites & Cops,” which, in his view, is a “white-nationalist device of labeling those who oppose racism as antiwhite racists.”
The fierce Never Trumper argues that “racism sells in America.”
However, Boot believes that “the political advantage from these attacks might be negated — and Trump might be deterred from launching more of them in the future” if the Republic Party “would call him out.”
Boot ultimately believes that “the Trump era will be seen as a sad last gasp of white resistance.”
A few decades from now, when the entire country is majority-miinority, the Trump era will be seen as a sad last gasp of white resistance — a reprehensible episode that will be recounted alongside the McCarthy era, the internment of citizens and noncitizens of Japanese descent during World War II, and the Palmer Raids. No one will remember or care who backed a corporate tax cut. When their grandchildren ask today’s Republicans what they did to oppose Trump’s racism, what will they say? “No comment”?
Boot has been a DC mainstay for the past few decades and established himself as one of the fiercest proponents of the failed Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts.
Since Trump got elected in 2016, Boot has become an irate critic of the Trump administration.
The election of Trump was a rejection of Boot’s regime change fanaticism and has invalidated many of the policies he championed during the Bush years.
For that reason, Boot continues to harp on Trump.
Boot does raise a good point about demographic shift, however.
The majority of this has been caused by mass migration, which benefits Democrats at the polls.
