“I recently became engaged to my Asian fiancée who is making roughly 3 times what I make, and I am completely supportive of her and proud she is doing so well,” he wrote. “We’ve both benefitted a lot from globalization. We are young, urban, and have a happy future planned. We seem molded to be perfect young Hillary supporters,” he observed, “but we’re not. In 2016, we’re both going for Trump.”

  1. Yeah, but this is still fundamentally racist thinking, the PC fear bullshit. The article makes the tacit argument that this douchecanoe speaks for a large volume of people and there’s no way to substantiate that.

  3. It boggles my mind that this person will uncritically vote for Trump because he thinks it will magically eliminate his social awkwardness (which he blames on an overly politically correct culture). I mean that’s not even wrong. It’s just garbage in, garbage out.

  5. NO RACISM HERE FOLKS:

    Finally, I feel that white supremacists and anti-Semites are a tiny faction that shouldn’t be a reason to dismiss Trump’s speech of empowerment. I do see feeling that white culture is under attack in many ways when being called a “white male” is an attack, where white history is decried by the left as a history of rape and pillage. But white supremacy and anti-Semitism is not the answer for most Trump supporters.

  8. Christ I fucking hate this guy:

    Long term, illegal immigrants will have children who will compete against my children for university spots and job opportunities. It’s admittedly very selfish, but I do want to ensure the greatest advantages I can give them.

    I don’t know how to describe it, exactly, but I feel in a lot of ways that my identity as a white man is shamed.

  10. The interviewer does a good job of poking holes in his stance, yet also at least lets the guy engage in s dialogue; this is pretty kickass journalism.

    I also like that the guy shows no irony whatsoever that, were the policies he want in place when his in-laws came to the US, they would have been deported and he’d never have met his wife.

  12. One of my husband’s great-grandparents snuck into the country from Europe via South America. As some of my in-laws are conservative, I am ready at a moment’s notice to point out that without illegal immigration, they would not exist.
