Disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok is despised by most people who live between the gilded coasts, though possibly not as much as he despises them.
However, knowing “who hates whom” tells us little about the merits of almost any dispute. Ordinary Americans are no more “deplorable” than Strzok is a cartoon villain bent solely on their disenfranchisement. He believes he’s one of the good guys.
I’ve been reading the published text messages that Strzok exchanged with his collaborator Lisa Page. They illustrate how, except for the organized riots and Antifa terrorism, racial problems haven’t changed much since 2016 when Barack Obama was president:
July 8, 2016
Strzok – And meanwhile, we have Black Lives Matter protestors, right now, chanting “no justice no peace” around DoJ and the White House…
A few days later, Strzok and Page’s messages discuss Republican plutocrats like Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney:
July 14, 2016
Page – Have you read this? It’s really frightening. For Whites Sensing Decline, Donald Trump Unleashes Words of Resistance
Strzok – I have not. But I think it’s clear he’s capturing all the white, poor voters who the mainstream republicans abandoned in all but name in the quest for the almighty $$$
And in response to Strzok’s last comment, ordinary Americans across the land are nodding their heads in agreement. They are the actual “resistance” to the people in power.
And whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing (make up your own mind), that’s why Donald Trump was elected president.
