Veteran sports journalist Jason Whitlock is no conservative. He’s a liberals liberal who just happens to believe in free speech (for everyone), the right for conservatives to be heard on college campuses, the truth that black people have more opportunity in America than anywhere else in the world, and that identity politics is destroying America.
Oh, he also thinks that calling Trump a “conservative” is ridiculous and that the “resist” movement is actually just the establishment trying to stop Trump from changing the American political landscape.
Whitlock recently sat down for a very interesting conversation with Dave Rubin:
I’m completely surprised that this is where we’ve landed in American media, where original thoughts, thoughts that really challenge the establishment are derided and are — people on social media try to silence [it]…
Here’s what’s going to get me in trouble: The ‘Resistance Movement’ is actually an establishment movement. They think they are being anti-establishment, but Donald Trump is not the establishment. He is actually burning down the establishment. This isn’t me taking up for Trump. But the entire resistance movement is actually the establishment fighting back against people trying to tear down the establishment…
The other thing: To label Donald Trump as any type of classic conservative is preposterous. he is not a conservative. He is a blowhard that was a good TV personality, a successful Tv personality and a successful real estate person, but mostly a blowhard, and he doesn’t represent any particular political agenda, other than maybe to help real estate billionaires, but I’m not sure it goes beyond that.
