Has Donald Trump Maxed Out His White Male Privilege?
It’s kind of bullshit that “grab them by the pussy” is the scandal most likely to contribute to Donald Trump’s karmically deserved downfall.
The final Trumpian straw for white male Christian conservatives (WMCC’s) is Trump’s sexual assaults of white women (Trump has arguably admitted his own racism, so—I might be wrong—but I’m assuming there are not going to be any Trumpian sexual assault charges coming from black women).
Let the record show that WMCC’s didn’t mind (in no particular order, and among many other scandals) when Trump:
- insulted the entirety of Mexico as an announcement of his candidacy.
- called for blatantly fascist scapegoating policies against immigrants.
- proposed a ban on Islam, an entire religion.
- refused to do what Jesus would have done in accepting US efforts to foster dying Syrian refugee orphan children.
- paid fines to the Department of Justice for racial discrimination.
- insinuated that women critical of his integrity are not to be taken seriously because they must be on their period—though I suppose that one is actually backed by the Bible.*
- objectified women for their looks throughout his entire life.
- promised to bring back torture, and to turn America into a terror-state by indiscriminately killing innocent people in ramped up bombings of the Middle East.
- proposed to bring back stop-and-frisk—an unconstitutional racist policy—nationally.
- verbally vomited anti-semitic stereotypes against Jews
- insinuated that his supporters ought to use their guns to violently enact political change.
- money-laundered other people’s charitable donations to buy vanity monuments of and to himself.
- frequently retweeted and phrase-adopted the alt-right’s Third Reich aesthetic of authoritarianism and racial hierarchy.
- chronically fantasized about dating his daughter.
But now WMCC’s are offended by Trump because he has bragged about sexually assaulting (white) women.
I suppose better late than never, but the fact that WMCC’s could support the personification of the antithesis of Christianity this far is bewildering. Don’t WMCC’s regularly attend church in order to prepare themselves spiritually for standing up to obvious antichrists such as Donald Trump? Trump is a billionaire—Jesus said a lot about the self-absorbed rich.
However, WMCC’s truant moral principles have finally taken a first step back in the right direction toward the objective reality that Donald Trump should never be president. It appears as if Trump has maxed out his white male privilege, even with his white-male-privileged base who have shrugged off all his other biases both religious and ethnic until this week.
19 “Whenever a woman has her menstrual period, she will be ceremonially unclean for seven days. Anyone who touches her during that time will be unclean until evening. 20 Anything on which the woman lies or sits during the time of her period will be unclean. 21 If any of you touch her bed, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening. 22 If you touch any object she has sat on, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening. 23 This includes her bed or any other object she has sat on; you will be unclean until evening if you touch it. 24 If a man has sexual intercourse with her and her blood touches him, her menstrual impurity will be transmitted to him. He will remain unclean for seven days, and any bed on which he lies will be unclean. 25 “If a woman has a flow of blood for many days that is unrelated to her menstrual period, or if the blood continues beyond the normal period, she is ceremonially unclean. As during her menstrual period, the woman will be unclean as long as the discharge continues. 26 Any bed she lies on and any object she sits on during that time will be unclean, just as during her normal menstrual period. 27 If any of you touch these things, you will be ceremonially unclean. You must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening. 28 “When the woman’s bleeding stops, she must count off seven days. Then she will be ceremonially clean. 29 On the eighth day she must bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons and present them to the priest at the entrance of the Tabernacle. 30 The priest will offer one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. Through this process, the priest will purify her before the LORD for the ceremonial impurity caused by her bleeding. 31 “This is how you will guard the people of Israel from ceremonial uncleanness. Otherwise they would die, for their impurity would defile my Tabernacle that stands among them.
