A black high school student spent the day volunteering at a Donald Trump campaign office to put to rest any doubt that he is free to criticize Trump and his supporters of being racist.
Or at least, from high school Junior James Patterson’s questionable description about his experience, that’s what it appears.
Despite admitting that his fellow “white” volunteers were “very friendly” and “normal,” he made the stretch to fit them into his narrow prism of progressive ideology.
Seemingly shocked that no one called him “the n-word” or “coon,” as he told the far-left media group The Young Turks, he claimed he felt “micro-aggressions.”
“For lack of a better word, it’s micro-aggressions,” Patterson said. “You know, the way they look at you. The way they talk about foreign policy and how they talk about oppressed groups when they don’t think you’re listening.”
He added more of what he assumed about the Trump phenomenon, saying white middle-class America feels threatened because they see minorities “making strides.”
Here’s a news flash, kid: minorities have not made strides under President Obama; all of those strides were made prior to this administration and we’ve been regressing at warp speed ever since.
It’s easy to speculate that a group supporting Trump doesn’t live by the constraints of political correctness. It’s also easy to assume the Trump supporters he was working with were speaking freely … something the young teen is probably not used to, and is clearly not comfortable with.
The Trump workers were “normal people who have these resentments towards minorities, not able to voice them because thankfully we have policed language to the effect that that’s not acceptable,” Patterson said. “But they still hold these — and this is their way to show that.”
Unless Patterson is holding back conclusive evidence of racism, everything he said about the Trump supporters during the short interview was conceived in his mind to fit a narrative.
It shows the power of indoctrination that is being passed on to the younger generation through academia, Hollywood, and media. Online progressive groups, and universities from coast-to-coast, have been teaching about the dangers of so-called “micro-aggressions.” Language that has been stigmatized as “racist” and “offensive” include innocuous, feel good terms such as “human race,” “America is the land of opportunity” and “melting pot.”
These, and many more, are all “micro-aggressions” one could conceivably hear at any Republican event.
So while Patterson made a respectable effort to discover the truth for himself by helping with the Trump campaign, from this interview, he clearly didn’t seem ready to accept it.
