As I drive around various parts of my state, wasting precious gasoline for no good reason, I notice things about various communities and what the inhabitants stand for.

I notice that the communities that have the highest concentration of BLM and Biden/Harris signs are almost always the more affluent, predominantly white, suburban neighborhoods. Streets lined with McMansions, premium brand SUV's, finely manicured lawns and scores of elementary- and middle-school-aged children.

I also notice the communities that have the highest concentration of Trump/Pence and Support Local Police signs are more blue-collar or farming communities.

My state has a very high concentration of the former category. I get a little nauseous driving through these communities sometimes.

I try to understand how wealthy, white suburbanites could be so stupid as to support organizations and politicians that hate them and marginalize them, decrease the amount of wealth they can manage for themselves, and restrict the freedoms many of them enjoy. White folks who believe that they themselves are genetically recessive, racist, privileged, and evil, solely because of their race? Wealthy people who feel guilty about working hard for what they have so they are willing to let the government take half of what they worked hard for? Savvy investors who believe the government can invest more wisely than they can? Their incentive cannot be rational, but emotional, driven by empty lives, "white guilt," a need to feel like they're "good people" by supporting the fight for the downtrodden, etc. But that support is shallow, devoid of real understanding. Virtue-signaling is the low-hanging fruit that gives them instant gratification.

In my college town, there is no doubt that the majority are followers of Critical Race Theory and all the evil that comes with it. They are in an ideological trance, a hermetically sealed fantasy world. I can understand the academics and liberal scholars behaving this way, but business owners and executives, many of ehom have been hit by the shutdowns, and they support more of the very policies that harm them? It just seems insane.

In any case, political allegiances sure do seem to follow very well-defined socio-economic lines. Does anyone else notice this in their area?

Wealthy White liberals are largely insulated from the consequences of the leftwing policies they support. The wealthy White liberals only care about themselves. They have no sense of loyalty to their fellow Whites, thus they don't care if middle class Whites or poor Whites suffer.


To answer your question about why wealthy White liberals support anti-White policies, the answer is that those anti-White policies don't really affect them much.


It doesn't matter to them if low income housing is built in a middle-class White neighborhood bringing in ghetto thugs and a huge increase in violent crime, because the wealthy White liberals don't live in those neighborhoods.


It doesn't matter to them if dangerous criminals are released from prison, because they live in safe gated communities and are rarely victims of violent crime.


It doesn't matter to them if barbaric 3rd world immigrants are flooding in through open borders, because they don't reside in the areas that those 3rd world immigrants will live.


It doesn't matter to them if "hate speech" laws are passed, because since they live in safe, peaceful, wealthy neighborhoods, they have no reason to say anything negative about minority groups. Because the wealthy White liberals live in very safe and peaceful (mostly White) neighborhoods, they tend to have an inaccurate view of minorities, since all the minorities they interact with are generally on their best behavior. If the only minorities you ever interact with are well-behaved and polite fellow rich people or servants (housekeeper, lawn care guy, waiter at a restaurant), then of course having open borders sounds like a good idea. Wealthy White liberals aren't the ones who suffer from crime, violence, vandalism, looting, etc that occurs in "diverse" areas.



Additionally, there is the virtue signaling element. Wealthy White liberals care more about virtue signaling how tolerant and progressive they are than they care about less fortunate Whites. If middle class Whites or poor Whites have to suffer violent crime, looting, etc so the wealthy White liberals can brag at their fancy parties about how they support multiculturalism, that's a price wealthy White liberals are willing to pay, since they don't care about their fellow Whites.


In fact, virtue signaling is even more important to them than the well-being of their own kids. That's why you see wealthy White liberals forcing their kids to hold signs that say "Privileged" so their wealthy White liberal parents can post the photo on Facebook/Instagram to virtue signal how progressive they are.

My thought 'zactly! Like garlic to a vampire they think a BLM sign will repel BLM if or when they come to town. I also think it's flawed reasoning because BLM/antifa don't care. They're just there to damage, riot, frighten and burn anything they want. There IS no repellant save for a well-armed police presence (can't count on that) or National Guard.
Or perhaps armed citizens ...

Across Dr.MLK Street North, which used to be just 9th St No, is possible the most upscale neighborhood from my hovel. AllenDale Terrace has more biden/harris signs per property than you can imagine. Most yards have multiple demoncrap campaign signage with several biden/harris signs.
Now most of these homes are older they certainly are stately. Large yards, huge houses and multy-car garages full of high end SUVs and sedans.

Good idea but that would be last resort by me. Don't know how many in my neighborhood would "participate." And I really don't need to spend large amounts of time in jail while the blm/antifas go free.

A co worker of mine is a staunch, hardcore liberal. from the deepest throws of the "deep south." Still lives firmly entrenched in said region. plans to retire up north. but a liberal. believes no one needs AR rifles. does not own personal weapons. how any cop can be a liberal is something I will never understand. he is fully open about the fact that he is voting for biden - knowing he is inept, believing Harris will be pres in short order.

Don't get me wrong, I love the guy. consider him one of few good, real, true friends. but the politics baffles me mind. I will be present and accounted for at the polls just to negate his vote.

I know a few like that.
It absolutely baffles me. I had dinner the other night with a guy I've known for about 12 years. Nice guy. Engineer type. Used to be a competitive shooter. As my wife and I pulled up to his house, we saw a Biden sign. All I could do is shake my head. He's too damn smart for that. WTF is he thinking???

likewise with my friend. remarkably smart, on all accounts. history, current events, etc. incredibly well travelled. At first I thought, perhaps, spent too much time in Europe. but speaking with him he is the first to admit, the liberal policies / govt frameworks work over there due to homogenous societies, and different culture than in the US. Flat out admits, socialism will never work in the US. but still votes for these idiots.

I sure notice it as well. These affluent fools have never any time around anyone other than their own kind and feel quite fine lecturing the rest of us. I’d love to see how much of this blm **** they’d welcome in their little walled off private estates. Hypocrites,every one of them.
