In the form of Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and Wajahat Ali, the unholy trinity of CNN, the New York Times, and Never Trump got together Saturday to mock Trump supporters as illiterate rubes.
The New York Times Wajahat Ali is — okay, I don’t know who that is.
In many ways, the Don Lemons, Rick Wilsons, and Wajahat Alis remind me of the resistance in the Deep South against the civil rights movement.
I’m talking about the segregationist Democrats in the Deep South who declared themselves the Resistance, and who became more hateful, openly bigoted, and violent as the Civil Rights movement challenged their power and exposed them for who they really are.
Whether it’s the Deep South in the 50s and 60s, or America today, when Democrats like Lemon, Ali, and Wilson feel their power threatened, feel themselves exposed, they get uglier and uglier.
