Former SJW and Current Liberal: Why I'm Voting for Trump

This whole post via Tim Pool, who is also a liberal now voting for Trump.

A new poll says that 36% of its respondents say they know a friend or family member who is a Secret Trump voter.

Over a third of all registered voters in America know a friend or family member who privately supports President Donald Trump but who is reluctant to say so in public, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.

A total of 36% of respondents said an acquaintance of theirs has kept quiet about his or her support for the president. An additional 25% were 'not sure' if they knew someone in that category. And 39%, meanwhile, said they had no friends or family who secretly support Trump.

That finding tracks with a Cato Institute poll from late July, in which 62% of all respondents said they had political views they were hiding, due to the current climate of Leftwing McCarthyism.

Anew Cato national survey finds that self‐​censorship is on the rise in the United States. Nearly two-thirds—62%—of Americans say the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive. The share of Americans who self‐​censor has risen several points since 2017 when 58% of Americans agreed with this statement.


These fears cross partisan lines. Majorities of Democrats (52%), independents (59%) and Republicans (77%) all agree they have political opinions they are afraid to share.

The only people not afraid to speak their minds are those whose minds are in perfect lockstep with the Maoist McCarthyites -- "strong liberals." (That's not the terminology I'd use, myself.)

Strong liberals stand out, however, as the only political group who feel they can express themselves. Nearly 6 in 10 (58%) of staunch liberals feel they can say what they believe. However, centrist liberals feel differently. A slim majority (52%) of liberals feel they have to self‐​censor, as do 64% of moderates, and 77% of conservatives. This demonstrates that political expression is an issue that divides the Democratic coalition between centrist Democrats and their left flank.

At Medium, a self-confessed former SJW is a not-secret-at-all Trump voter.

Hello, my name is Keri and I’m a liberal who is voting for Donald Trump.

A little background, I used to be a "Social Justice Warrior." For 20 years I was a true believer, who preached this evil ideology, fully convinced that it was the way to end racism and sexism. It took me two decades to realize it IS racism. It IS sexism.

Before the 2016 election, I went down a rabbit hole of videos of Trump supporters being assaulted by people who were supposed to be on my side, who were supposed to be liberals and progressives. I was left in tears, utterly shocked and repulsed. Because the legacy media had not told me this was happening. Matter of fact, they had sold me, and I had bought without sufficient evidence, the opposite narrative.

I still cried the night Trump won. Because I still believed the things I was told to believe about him, without forming my own opinion. Social Justice Warriors do a lot of that. But it became really important for me to figure out why he won, because I wanted to prevent it from happening again in 2020. So I started leaving my carefully cultivated echochamber. I started seeking out other points of view, and actually *listening* to why people voted for him, instead of projecting and telling them what the media had told me were their reasons. I started meeting Trump voters, most of whom did not fit the stereotype I'd been sold.

Can she email NeverTrumpers and try to get them to leave their carefully-curated echo chambers?

Eh, why bother. They're Suburban Empathy Moms and Wine Aunts (TM). The "males" among them most of all.

And in the past four years I watched as my old ideology, Social Justice Marxism, went mainstream. In the past few months in particular it has become culturally dominant to the point where it is being spoken by all of our major corporations, by academia, by entertainment, by Big Social, by the Legacy Media, and by the Democratic Party, my old party.
