Solid Trumpism

Ronald Aronson in de Boston Review:

An African American man becomes elected, and the battle cry becomes “Take America back!” Hispanic immigrants become more visible, and the battle cry becomes “Build the wall!” A Muslim-American congresswoman criticizes the president, and the battle cry becomes “Send her back!” As Mutz explains, “It is not racism of the kind suggesting that whites view minorities as morally or intellectually inferior, but rather, one that regards minorities as sufficiently powerful to be a threat to the status quo.”

Exact het sentiment waarmee N-VA – en recent ook het “nieuwe” Vlaams Belang – bij ons scoorde: geen racisme an sich, maar vooral het gevoel dat “wij” – en iedereen vult dat anders in – erop achteruit gaan.
