James Thompson, Democrat in Kansas running for Congress
Back in February I asked “Can the Democrats really run veterans, football players and sheriffs (in other words, the type of people who appeal to blue-collar whites) when the SJW-types who are in charge hate those types of people?”
In Kansas, James Thompson, a guy from a prole background, an army veteran who has a TV commercial in which he’s seen shooting an AR-15, is mounting a successful campaign in a special election for Congress. Part of his campaign shtick is that he’s pro-veteran and Washington isn’t doing enough for the veterans. As you know, prole whites from flyover country love the veterans. And his campaigns uses lots of American flags, and prole whites from flyover love the American flag.
Initially, Thompson got absolutely no support from the Democratic Party. The wrong kind of Democrat. But they are finally supporting him now , because the prospect of flipping a deep-red seat to the Democratic party overcomes their distaste of supporting white male military veterans.
Some of Thompson’s support comes because the voters in Kansas are mad that Republican Sam Brownback vetoed a bipartisan bill to finally accept Obama’s Medicaid expansion. The Medicaid expansion is like free money from the federal government, and without it, people too poor to qualify for Obamacare subsidies are left without any health insurance. The only reason to veto it at the state level is because some Republicans hate Obama so much they’d rather see the people of their state go without health coverage rather than accept Obama’s free federal money.
If it seems that I’m a fan of Thompson… well I have grave doubts about anyone whose career is as a “civil rights attorney” (after graduating from a TTT law school). That means his job is to use the law to harass white people for alleged discrimination against minorities and women. However, I could not find anything on the internet about his legal career, except that he’s in private practice and does not work for a government agency. His profile says that he does “Civil Rights, Civil Litigation, Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, and Wills,” so he sounds like some low-level shyster who will take any type of case because he doesn’t have enough business. Maybe he thinks that “civil rights attorney” sounds more prestigious than “personal injury attorney.”

Based on the comments, I certify that Mr. Thompson is not an SJW type of “civil rights attorney” but rather a low-rent ambulance chaser who thinks it’s more prestigious to call himself a “civil rights attorney.”
