Fareed Zakaria: Trump Is ‘A Class
Rebellion Against People Like Us’

Washington Free Beacon, by Conor Beck

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 8/1/2017 4:44:33 AM

CNN host Fareed Zakaria explained how President Donald Trump rose to power on "New Day" Monday morning. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. "There´s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That´s why they´re sticking with him," he continued. Zakaria also blamed racism and diversity on Trump´s rise. "He knew that the election of a black president had stirred a kind of ugly

Of course there are many wonderful exceptions but......

If the Blaque President (or New-Hire) turns out to be slovenly, lazy, shiftless, feckless, endlessly deceptive and un-trustworthy.....is it STILL Raaasiss to notice and to say something about it ?

I guess it´s just a wild coincidence that politicians of color are constantly on TV saying the craziest, most hateful, most unhinged and ignorant things imaginable.

Who are the real racists in our midst ?

I was traveling on business recently and was eating breakfast one morning. They often have morning television news on while you are eating.

I was exposed to about 10 minutes of Fareed Zakaria and got to thinking that the crap he was spouting was really viewed by many as respectable opinion and journalism.

Just because one has university-gained knowledge does not make one a purveyor of TRUTH. So much of what the man says is absolute propaganda and hogwash!

It gets even worse when there are no opposing views represented and the entire presentation is not based upon FACT, so the gist of it is that people who watch this are not being enlightened, but are brainwashed into a collective that is nothing more than indoctrination.

Why not celebrate the rights of the individual against government or a collective group of radicals "like us" who are counter to what makes our country great and stand apart from the socialists who TELL OTHERS they have to be "like this" or be excoriated?

If I could buy Fareed for what he´s worth-about two cents IMHO- and sell him for what he thinks he´s worth I believe it would come close to retiring the national debt.

Hey Fareed, what have you ever done that has actually added to the worth of this country? Sorry, just blathering nonsense and arrogance doesn´t count. The same goes for the rest of your ilk.

Fareed’s idea of his “class” doesn’t seem to mention his continued problems with plagiarism.

As for religion, his father was an “Islamic theologist”, a person who explains and defends Islam. Fareed Zakaria is "a self-described secular and non-practicing Muslim. He added: ´My views on faith are complicated — somewhere between deism and agnosticism. I am completely secular in my outlook.´[59][60].

He is also in insufferable sophist who is obviously the center of the world as he knows it.

Poor Fareed. "Your people" (liberal elites) have been assaulting American culture for decades. You walk around with your snooty noses in the air pontificating on the "failures" of an America that has provided so much for so many and STILL draws people here for the opportunities that they can get in no other place on earth.

Then, you inflict on us your solutions that don´t work and cost enormous amounts of money. All your education has produced only arrogance, not wisdom. When your toys lie in rubble, you walk away without a smidgen of blame and start all over blaming, inflicting, and failing.

So yes, there is a rebellion against your arrogance and stupidity. We are attempting to preserve one of, if not THE best nations and cultures that have existed on the earth; one you are too foolish to recognize or appreciate. If we have to bulldoze over "your people" to maintain it, so be it.

Wrong on all points, Fareed, except for the one where real Americans are fed up with people like you. I guess that makes yours a perfect face for CNN. Not racist, unless you are talking about whites, not condescending unless you are talking about people who have not sat in classrooms for a couple of decades and not judgmental as long as you are among muslims and dark-skinned folks. I think I understand. Yes, we prefer Trump to Obama, not because of your measurements but because he is a real man and an American.

´Educated´ to the East Coast cool set doesn´t mean what it means to the rest of us troglodytes. To them it means a degree from an Ivy League school, preferably Harvard or Yale. They are the only ones worthy of being called ´educated´, and they strongly resent those of us who don´t have the intelligence to acquiesce to our betters. In my view, they have a degree, but hardly an education. They live in a circular world where the job of each is to tell the person to their left in the circle how fabulous they are. They daily breath the prayer of the Pharisee, thanking their god (which is usually themselves) that they are not like that [re]publican over there.

Zakaria´s characterization of "people like us (like him)" is exactly on the mark.

A rebellion against people like him, Hillary, Schumer, and literally every Democrat in congress as well as many false-flag Republicans like McCain, etc., is exactly what the country needs!

"A real sense of cultural alienation, older, white, noncollege education Americans have, (1)a sense that their country is changing because of immigrants. (2)Because maybe blacks are rising up to a central place in society, (3)because gays being afforded equal rights. (4)Because of, frankly, working women. Everybody is muscling in on the territory that the white working man had,"

(1)Not immigrants, criminal alien invaders. We love immigrants, most of us are related to immigrants...the ones who followed the rules and obeyed all the laws and worked to support their families.

(2)There are far more black racists than middle class white ones, we know and like hard working blacks..and resent the ones who think the are entitled to a work-free job, a college education without studying, a nice house and a great car without making payments...all provided by our tax dollars.

(3)Gays do not want, and are not "afforded" equal rights--they want superior rights, they want the ability to bankrupt anyone who doesn´t--(not accept, but) applaud their lifestyle choices as better than what nature developed for the future of the species.

(4)We realize that most of the time, a family cannot exist on only the father´s take-home pay. LIEberal tax-and-spend policies demand a second income...and more taxes...making it financially impossible to raise children with a stay-at-home mother. Also, LIEberal policies encourage the dissolution of families, making the father obsolete, by generous welfare policies that cause people to either a)never marry or b)an easy-to-obtain divorce.

And the point not mentioned...the Ivy League, coastal elites have worked long and hard to remove our religious foundations, mocking faith, attempting to exile the Ten Commandments from the public consciousness, promoting laws that require religious people--and church entities--to act against their faith, trying to remove all morality by any means available.

At Whitehouse.org, there’s a petition with over 110,000 names demanding that the federal government declare Antifa to be a terrorist organization. That’s not a terrible idea, of course; if you’ve followed the antics of Antifa and the rioting and violence they’ve involved himself in, you might well think of the current definition of domestic terrorism in federal law.

If ever there was a news media organization that needs a jolt of energy, it’s Breitbart News, the far-right news and commentary platform guided to prominence by Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist. The site’s traffic and advertising have declined precipitously over the past year, perhaps in tandem with Trump’s approval ratings. Many news sites have come off election-year highs, but Breitbart has crested and fallen like a Pacific wave. Its traffic is off by almost half since it peaked in November at around 24 million monthly visitors. Enter — or reenter — Bannon, who resumed his role as Breitbart’s

On Monday evening, President Trump addressed the nation to outline his new strategy to win the war in Afghanistan. After a series of accusations by lawmakers and the media suggesting that the president had been dragging his feet on the conflict, Trump confidently committed to sending an additional 4,000 troops to Afghanistan and indicated that the United States will work closely with NATO allies, as well as regional allies in Pakistan and India to resolve the conflict. To open his address, the president followed through on an important recommendation that I have made over the past week. Although President Trump could not have

The Barcelona terrorists had planned to turn a majestic Spanish cathedral frequented by tourists into a scene of blood and carnage — but they were forced to abandon that strategy when their bombs accidentally detonated inside their hideout. The famous Sagrada Familia cathedral — designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi — was “Plan A” for the terror cell’s devastating attack, according to Spanish media. Those plans, however, were thwarted when one of the cell’s bomb factories 120 miles to the south of Barcelona burst into rubble Wednesday evening, leaving behind 120 gas cannisters carrying butane and a volatile powder known as “Mother

Unless you work in it, it is impossible to know exactly what goes on inside any administration. The thought processes behind actions and statements are calculated and self-serving, no doubt. It’s usually not that difficult to rationalize why people acted as they did – or it was before the Trump White House. But now, more often than not, from minor to major actions, it’s often impossible to see any rationale for what is going on. I know I’m going to catch hell from some people for this, but I have to ask some questions. Most pressing is this: Is there anyone involved

The disgusting resurgence of white supremacists in 2017 America, aided and abetted by a White House engaging in toxic moral equivalence, has gotten an assist from a tiny left-wing cadre. This loosely organized band calls itself antifa (“anti-fascist”), and — unlike the broad coalition of activists arrayed in opposition to much of the Trump agenda — its members unapologetically embrace violence as the only sufficiently strong answer to those they see as enemies, even when those enemies are engaging in nonviolent protest. Down this road, madness lies. In a civil society — fingers crossed, that’s what this still is — unprovoked violence is

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners.
