Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Someone else gets it. Poor white males & guns

For about 50 years Democrats, Wall Street, Republicans and the Koch brothers have waged a war on the middle class people and poor people with finance. They have steadily, relentlessly, taken the American Dream from them. 

The former union, working class people do hard physical work, are our military, our police and prison workers. Most of them do violence for a living and they have millions of military grade weapons. 

Maybe we’ll be saved by Bernie Sanders, but Democrats and the press are terrified of the Clintons and it looks like we'll have President Clinton or President Trump right now. 

People are afraid Trump will rule like a Fascist. A military state.

If Clinton wins more poor and middle class white men and women will take up arms, shoot and kill the most convenient target.  It’s already happening. It will probably happen more often as the election progresses. How do you think Clinton will respond? Maybe with a Fascist military state?

I could have written this, but not as well:

“For their entire working lives, conditions for working class males have been getting worse. 

‘Free trade’ has not worked for them. China joined the WTO in 2000… 
So, for damn near 48 years, poor whites have done terribly. For fourty-eight years, ordinary politicians have promised to do something about it, and nothing has improved. 

Do not tell me, or them, that they are “privileged.” Yes, it is better to be poor and white than poor and black, and better to be a poor white man than a poor white woman, but people who are in pain do not react well to some smug, upper-middle-class jerk telling them they are privileged when their lives are clearly terrible. 

It is a FACT that working class whites will not see any improvement worth mentioning under any normal politician, including Clinton. They may see an improvement under Trump, they certainly would under Sanders. 

They are voting for what they see as their interests, and they are not necessarily wrong. Certainly, Trump is more likely to help than Clinton, as the chance of Clinton helping them is zero. Zip. Nada… 

Now, when I say “poor whites,” smart people should hear “people who are willing to be violent.” 

Who mans America’s actual fighting regiments? That’s right, poor whites.
Who are your police? Who are your prison guards? 

Right. Even if they make decent money as a cop or guard, they’re poor whites by culture: Scots-Irish core. 

These are bad people to alienate to the point where they are willing to turn, en-masse, to a demagogue. 

Why Poor White Males Are the Core of Trump’s Support
