I Spent 5 Years With Some of Trump’s Biggest Fans” prewriting

What are the key beliefs in the Deep Story of the Right/Personal Protectionism? This is a right there question, asking you to summarize the Deep Story.

In the article there are people being interviewed on what they think are the key beliefs in the deep story. These people blieve that“ Then you see the immigrants Mexican, Samolis,  the Syrian refugees Yet to Come. As you wait in this on moving line you’re being asked to feel sorry for them all. You have a good heart. But who is deciding who you feel compassion for? Then you see President Barack Obama waving the line Cutters for. He’s on their side. In fact isn’t he a line cutter to? How was his father was black I’d pay for Harvard? As you wait your turn Obama is using the money in your pocket to help the line cutterz. He and his liberal backers have removed the shame from taking. The government has become an instrument for redistribute in your money to the undeserving. It’s not your government anymore it’s theirs.” When people say that immigrants that have moved here are undeserving and are line cutters they arent. I mean sure there are some peopl eher illegally but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a right to be here. The majority of the US ancestors are not orginally from the US. Everyone has different ethnicitys and ancestors that cam eover like these people now.

 

How do economics shape the feelings and thinking of the people Hochschild profiles, especially their feelings and thinking about race, immigration, welfare, and other political issues?

In todays society there is a lot of back and forth between political groups about who deserves to be here and who isn’t. Some people interviewed also express that “Pervasive among the people I talked to was a sense of Detachment From A Distant Elite with whom they ever less contact and less in common. And as older white Christians they were acutely aware of their demographic decline. You can’t say Merry Christmas you have to say happy holidays one person said. People aren’t clean living anymore. You’re considered ignorant if you’re not for that. An accountant told me.” Now in the world there are so many things that aren’t socially exceptable even if your representing what your beliefs are.  According to Hochschild“ Other people say, you’re too hard-nosed about morals. Better to be hard-nosed than to be like it is now so permissive about everything.” They also felt disrespected for holding their values: “ you’re weak woman if you don’t believe that woman should you know just elbow your way through Society. You’re not in the In Crowd if you’re not a liberal. You’re an old fashioned old fogey small thinking small town gun-loving religious set a minister’s wife. The media tries to take the Tea Party look like bigots homophobic it’s not. They resented all labels the Liberals had for them especially backward or ignorance Southerners or Worse rednecks.”There are many sterotypes for people that don’t belive that being permissive towards other peoples beliefs and trying to express them. Your looked at as a trump loving redneck if you dont appied by those rules.

 

Do you recognize any elements of the “Deep Story of Personal Protectionism” in the Whiteness Project videos we’ve been analyzing? If so, describe and explain at least two of them, being sure to indicate who is saying what and how prevalent each element is in our spreadsheet. Are there any other “Deep Stories” at play in the Whiteness Project videos? If so, what would you call them?

In this assignment and our last assignment there are many similarities of what Hochschild is talking about and what these people from the Whiteness project videos are talking about. In Hochschild her interviewee explain “Then you see the immigrants Mexican, Samolis,  the Syrian refugees Yet to Come. As you wait in this on moving line you’re being asked to feel sorry for them all. You have a good heart. But who is deciding who you feel compassion for? Then you see President Barack Obama waving the line Cutters for. He’s on their side. In fact isn’t he a line cutter to? How was his father was black I’d pay for Harvard? As you wait your turn Obama is using the money in your pocket to help the line cutterz. He and his liberal backers have removed the shame from taking. The government has become an instrument for redistribute in your money to the undeserving. It’s not your government anymore it’s theirs.” When people say that immigrants that have moved here are undeserving and are line cutters they arent. I mean sure there are some peopl eher illegally but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a right to be here. The majority of the US ancestors are not orginally from the US. Everyone has different ethnicitys and ancestors that cam eover like these people now. In the Whiteness project we got to look at many people view of what there life has been life. There were two people that stood out to me: Wade and Nicholas.For wade he expressed that “ I’m not necessarily happy that I am white.Because of all the extra stuff that came with it because of like the way our race has acted like through the course of history like they’ve done the most evil messed up things I’ve ever seen other than like using rape as a weapon in the Congo but white people have definitely done worse than that in my opinion

What the place I work and stuff like that the people that say the most awful things that I’ve ever heard in person or those people are those white people to get drunk and sit at my bar and spout off nonsense and it makes me really disappointed that I have to be linked lumped into the same category as them for me is why I like the way that I look because I am separated in that way I think people of my generation are less tolerance to blatant racism but a lot of them don’t understand like what all comes with like the underlined racism systemic racism that’s happened I’ve seen like on the internet and on television and stuff like that a lot of older white men complaining about them being discriminated against because they’re right but I don’t necessarily agree with that . Wade is calm but also angry that he is white and that he represents a race that say such awful things and he is ashamed to be white. Nicholas however is a bit more forgiving by expressing that “The being white help them become who they are cuz they take a lot of pride in the fact that their family may have not been Rich to begin with and are not rich what I when I got my job example I walked in there and I just look clean-cut white person and they hired me pretty much because of that and it’s just small small things that no one really notices but I see a little bit easier being white I think we’ve come a long way since the Civil Rights Movement but kids nowadays tend to grow up thinking that the problems in the past and if they’re still just a civil like there’s an unjust civil system I don’t feel guilty about the fact that I’ve been given these advantages I just feel the need to use these advantages subtly or how it whichever way I can to try to make sure that other people of other races can have the same advantages that I have. Nicholas seems to be accountable for the way his race is and also happy that he was given the advantages he has but at the same time sorry that others cant have that equality. They are talking about the issue instead of brushing it under the rug and by what was said in the article for this current assigment is unethical.
