White millennial men like Trump

Pew's recurring quiz on current events, dubbed "News IQ", is an easy way to shiv haughty SWPLs who throw phrases like "ignorant Trump supporters" and "alternative facts" around. As is always the case, Republicans modestly outscored Democrats in the most recent iteration from a couple of years ago.

Millennials outscored all other age cohorts on one of the 12 questions. If you guessed it to be the question in which participants were asked to identify this man:


... you would be correct. He is the holiest member of the American pantheon, after all. Doubly so among those under the age of 35.

But the rumors of widespread apostasy spreading through the ranks have become impossible to ignore. Core America's young men are warming to a new god-emperor (n = 701):

When playing around with the filters, I looked at white millennial girls who voted for Trump and his approval rating with them increased to 89% (from 86%).

The reason why I checked this is that the majority of millennial women voted for Trump and if his approval rating with them is still high then it means that there are very few white girls who regret their vote for him. This confirms my findings on Facebook where even though these girls still claim to care about social justice, none of them have stated that they regretted voting for him.

Married white girls 18-34 approve of him 60-37-3. White girls with children approve of him even more at 65-32-3. The future Catladies of America (white, 18-34, female, single and never married) disapprove of him 55-41-2. I think back to the bile spewed by barren Jewess Ilana Glazer screeching about Ivanka Trump on Twitter. White women who are required to be more forward thinking tend to support Trump but the #yolo crowd seems to hate him.

Bright future tomorrow vs. frivolous degeneracy today? So hard to choose...

Random Dude,

You only live once if you don't have children, indeed. Procreation is the closest thing we have to immortality. Let those with dusty vaginas be forgotten footnotes in history. Let us be participants in the future.

Typical Lefty attitude. We're entitled to get in people's faces, disrupt their lives, be obnoxious, despoil and damage land and property, etc. because, we are the good guys. It's more evidence that they lack respect for rules and process, which is why they are more likely to have criminal records.

Protest culture is regularly cloaked in this nobility by the PC mainstream culture, even though it's often ugly, crude, divisive, and even counter-productive. It's rarely mentioned that the most enthusiastic protesters are often mentally unbalanced college kids and losers.

There's plenty of things a person can do to make a difference besides throwing a tantrum.

BTW, Lefties always whine about how unfair the law is. Paranoid. Why is it so hard to understand that people who behave themselves typically are treated in kind? Leftists often know at least subconsciously that they're prone to reckless mischief and indulgence. They feel insecure about teaching the rewards of good behavior since they themselves are bad actors. Better to act like being punished for your sins is evidence that the system is stacked against you.

Even Limbaugh recently said that the reason Leftists are so grouchy, and always will be, is because they are fixated by "victims". They all feel like victims, know matter how powerful they've become, because they feel bad about not being able to do whatever they want (as long as it doesn't upset a protected class) without judgement. And they wish to extend this privilege to every co-Leftist who doesn't go off the reservation.

Yeah, the leftist endgame is absolution of responsibility. They want to do whatever they want to whoever they want, provided they're not higher up on the progressive stack. "Victim" is now a status that they desperately covet and once they have it, they hang onto it for dear life. Once you are awarded that status, you can get your enemies fired from their job, you can smash windows, light trash cans on fire, etc. Thanks to eight years of the implicit okey doke by our former Commander in Chief, anarcho-tyranny was considered acceptable.

Hell, the upper left likes it when their people (the lower left) riot or act like screaming babies. They hope to use it as a cudgel against the middle to break them down further. That's why there's been such an upswing in rioting activity: the high-low coalition is attempting to use rioting to break the #MAGA spirit that the middle showed in strength this election. Sadly it can be effective because I see lots of cucks where I work blame Trump and his brusque rhetoric for causing the left to throw a nationwide shitfit. They want Trump to make overtures to start working with the left. It's so sad and pathetic to witness it in person.

Feryl,

Getting a page not found from that URL.

If it gets violent in any way and the participants are disguised, it's not a protest, it's terrorism, and should be treated as such. Making a few hard examples--hopefully the inaugural arrests will occur, but that will take time--would probably go a long way to shutting this shit down. My reading is that the fear of a backlash against a perceived overreaction is small. Middle America hates these people. Even many SWPLs I know hate them, or are annoyed by them, or at worst ignores them and is embarrassed by their existence.

Random Dude,

I responded to Feryl's comment before reading yours. That hasn't been my anecdotal experience, fortunately. Have you talked to anyone who has made excuses for the rioters? I haven't. They try to downplay it or claim that these aren't leftists, they're just anarchists, etc. There's maybe a tenuous insinuation that an enemy of an enemy is a friend, but I don't get the sense that most SWPLs are cheering these people on.

They must've taken that page down right after I looked at (I clicked on the link in my history and nothing showed up). Oh well, it was fear mongering about literal Hitler cracking down on our "right" to be dickheads with impunity.

There does some to be some inveterate anti-Trumpers who at least tacitly endorse disruptive tactics, most of whom fall on the Left side of the spectrum. Level-headed and law abiding people (e.g., conservatives) indeed detest throwing childish tantrums to get your way. My dad still can't get over the GOP is for rich snobs meme, and he doesn't seem to get that it's not lunch pail guys who are rioting, it's NAMs and college brats who are creating these headaches. He's one of those partisans who's in denial about the GOP becoming the true populist party; it's taken years of momentum (culminating in Trump) for many white independents/moderates to leave the Dems behind though I have a hunch that Trump's civic order heavy program may never totally sell to Leftist Boomers and X-ers with spotty track records (chemical abuse, criminal records, interpersonal instability, etc.).

Yeah, I know a 50 year old (barely a Gen X-er) gal who laments Trump's tone and style. I think this is an artifact of the culture war, where Boomers in particular are constantly critical of not just substance but even presentation. Daily Howler curator Bob Somersby has totally given in to TDS, but before Trump's inauguration he made good points about the degree of immaturity and pettiness among modern cultural elites. He says that around 1992 he noticed that reporters and journalists began to act haughty and vindictive, in keeping with the idea that the early 90's is when the culture war and personal peacocking really took off (before the 90's the media at least tried to be more dispassionate).

I've argued to her that it's actually Trump's ideas that are pushing buttons. Trump has made bolder promises than previous cucked presidents, and as he starts to deliver on them it makes the Left very nervous. Remember, many of these critics thought that Trump would back off. Hell, remember how in the early cabinet selection so many usual neo-con cucks were floated as possible selections?
