Anthony Bourdain slams ‘privileged’ liberals for ‘utter contempt’ of working class



Celebrity chef and self-described “privileged Eastern liberal” Anthony Bourdain slammed his fellow leftist elites this week, arguing that their disdain for working-class Americans helped create “the upswell of rage and contempt” that propelled Donald Trump to the presidency.

“The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the upswell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we’re seeing now,” Bourdain said in an interview with Reason magazine.

“I’ve spent a lot of time in gun-country, God-fearing America,” Bourdain continued. “There are a hell of a lot of nice people out there, who are doing what everyone else in this world is trying to do: the best they can to get by and take care of themselves and the people they love. When we deny them their basic humanity and legitimacy of their views, however different they may be than ours, when we mock them at every turn and treat them with contempt, we do no one any good.”

He's 100% correct and like me has lived amongst and talked to many Trump voters in rural USA.
Unlike me he's a celeb so maybe some will listen to him.
I suspect many on liberal left will ignore him or dismiss it as heresy.

I wish I had his life, travel around the world finding good food.

I've said this for a long time the liberals number one go to move is to mock people. Obama has led the charge in a lot of ways on this during his presidency.

Bordain is idiot

If any party has a disdain for the working class it's Republicans and Trump

The irony of the "morons and rubes" who voted for Trump will be evident when Trump/Republicans totally fuck them over in the years to come by taking away their access to insurance, medicare, social security all the other things that the "morons and rubes" depend on to keep their heads above water.

The smug and condescending Democrat Party will continue to lose elections.

They have no solutions and always revert to petty name calling.

I think the lesson to learn here for the DNC is they lost their way.  If anyone should be the party of the people, its the DNC.  They used to be, didn't they?

Blame Trump’s Victory on College-Educated Whites, Not the Working Class

https://newrepublic.com/article/138754/blame-trumps-victory-college-educated-whites-not-working-class

The average Trump voter is not poorly educated or unemployed, nor does he live in a rural area. Back in May, FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver punctured the myth of the “working class” being Trump’s voter base: In exit polls of 23 states from the primaries, all showed a higher median income for Trump supporters than the national average, usually around $70,000. Exit polls last week, while not definitive, reveal that both college-educated white men and college educated white women voted for Trump by much higher than expected margins.

So, when faced with the evidence you still deny it? Exit polls suggested a different story. Get over it, Hillary lost, let's move on and hope Trump does a great job. I've never in my adult life seen such a huge amount of crying and whining over an election result.

30,000 foot view of ground level problems. Awesome.

I like Bourdain and admire his views, that that part of America that was extremely racist (some still is) will not be converted by pointing the finger and insulting the folks that live in it. It's best to always let them speak and listen to the message.

Even when you listen to the KKK buffoons, if you strip the rants of all the macho racist bullshit, there is a clear message, a human message, that people ridicule because they can't concentrate on the content and instead put all their attention on the adjectives/insults. Same with folks like Malcom X or Louis Farrakhan.  

People like Obama and his constant mild-mannered rants go "unnoticed" by the media even when his BAD DECISIONS (using the US Government to get irrationally hostile toward China or Russia in geopolitical and economic moves that we need not get into) put ALL Americans at risk. Black and White. Instead, the Jew York Times and the Waste-toon Post rather front page the latest church burning in Alabama or the latest racist act in some Southern town, with the only intention but to make Americans believe that that only happens in backwards towns in the South and that that is the only problem facing the nation at that point.

I agree.  They lost their way because they were influenced to sell-out is one way to look at it, and that's what allowed neocons to take them over.  We really need to "Get Money Out Of Politics" like Ozmo says.  During the campaign I watched Trump say it, too, and he mentioned that we're on a "crash course" because of that, and it's true.

I agree.

From my observation the real Trump movement started when Obama sent his atty gen Eric Holder to
Ferguson, Missouri. They investigated with the default setting of suspicion of the police.
Many dems embraced the BLM side and alienated many middle class white's .

Whites like you are all for the police when they're keeping the blacks in order--essentially on slave patrol.

Otherwise you hate them as much as anyone else.  Stop playing man.  We all know.

So you love getting tickets and harassed?

Honestly, you have never seen the other side of LE.  I have.  I have cops in my family.  I've seen what they really do.  It's called the "bully patrol" for the Mayor and other civic leaders.  They fuck with the poor using predatory LE tactics because they are defenseless.  Awful shit if you knew and had some sense about you (which I think you do).

Agreed,,,,,the great feat that the Republicans have accomplished is that they have convinced the average poor white guy to vote for people who favor the rich and want to cut the very programs that help them
