“Despite what you will hear in the media, the silent majority in America are not hate filled racists, misogynists, bigots, or homophobes. They are good, patriotic, hard-working, God-fearing, normal people, who are sick and tired of being called those names by elites, celebrities, and the media. They are sick and tired of having a progressive liberal agenda shoved down their throat every waking second, and being told that they are bad people if they don’t like it. They are sick and tired of the rising tide of cultural Marxism. They have been mocked, ridiculed, and slapped in face for nothing more than holding a different world view than some. So, last night they hit the reset button. That, to me, is what this election was all about.”
– Louisiana political consultant Lionel Rainey, one year ago today, on Donald Trump’s electoral victory.
