Comment about Trump and proles

What makes me so sad about “Meriprolistan” is how those disgusting, vile and crass celebrities and jocks are so idolized. In prior generations it wasn’t unusual for the uneducated and low class to strive to inculcate their offspring with the values that would equip their next generation to rise to something better. Nowadays grownups across classes admire the trash-talkers and buffoons. World Wrestle Mania for all!. What bugs me about Trump aren’t necessarily his positions. Rather because he’s taking style notes from WWE and Howard Stern and yelling and carrying on like a low-class jerk. The billionaire real estate macher has out-crassed that fat Jersey boy governor. Trumps appeal to the proles consists 50% of his take no prisoner DGAF confidence, 30% crass loudmouthed bluster and probably only 20% policy positions.
I would have much rather supported somebody like a Romney, who could act dignified, calm and tactful like a sweetheart but while being quiet and firm on things like immigration restrictions.
It should be noted that this indictment of proles comes from someone whose pseudonym is a homonym for an uncouth activity. But leaving that aside, I too liked Romney very much for his dignified style.
The media has played the primary role in making candidate Trump possible. Not only do they give him the free publicity which has enabled him to rise to the top of the polls, they also set the stage for Trump by making it perfectly acceptable that voters should select a candidate based on whether they would want to have a beer with him, and they chuckled mightily when Romney was taken down by someone who said that he’s the guy who fired the guy you would want to have a beer with (or something like that).
More importantly, Romney is just too respectable to say anything that the media would judge to be politically incorrect. The problem is that our problems stem from political correctness. It’s politically incorrect demand a halt to immigration, despite the fact that this is what a majority of Americans want. Only a bozo like Trump can ignore the political correctness and give us the policies that make sense.
