Some good advice from a celebrity.

Post by StanDeManII » Tue Jan 03, 2017 7:37 am

A good read!

Anthony Bourdain: Blame Smug Liberals for Trump Election

It's time liberals stop looking down on conservatives, he says

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has an idea of who to blame for Donald Trump's presidential victory: people like him. "The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the upswell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we're seeing now," he says in a new interview with Reason. He's met a "hell of a lot of nice people ... in gun-country, God-fearing America," and found that they're on the same path as everyone else: doing "the best they can to get by, and take care of themselves and the people they love." And so when we brand their views as illegitimate, "when we mock them at every turn, and treat them with contempt, we do no one any good."

"The self-congratulatory tone of the privileged left—just repeating and repeating and repeating the outrages of the opposition—this does not win hearts and minds. It doesn't change anyone's opinions. It only solidifies them, and makes things worse for all of us," he continues. "We should be breaking bread with each other, and finding common ground whenever possible. I fear that is not at all what we've done." Click for the full interview, in which Bourdain reveals the celebrity he thinks is a "classic example of the smirking, contemptuous, privileged guy who lives in a bubble."

But, nominating and then electing Donald Trump proves conservatives are ridiculous morons and rubes.
That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!

Bourdain is correct. Trump was able exploit a key demographic that was being ignored by both parties - average working middle class people that are trying to make a living and raise their families and who don't relate to the coastal liberal intelligentia's agenda of social justice.

Excellent. He's a cool guy, and some arrogant dweebs here would do well to take his advice. However, they probably won't.

Ummmm, Maxwell, he still thinks you're all a den of cunts. He slammed the chefs who took jobs in the new Trump hotel. He just thinks both sides should talk to each other more rather than being so divisive. Ultimately, he's still trying to figure out the best way to get the fly over States to advance about 100 years and maybe catch up to the rest of the country.

Read his words again. He said he met a hell of a lot of nice people. You're exactly the hateful biased arrogant idiot he's referring to.

Yes, of course there are nice people in the fly over States, but he's not talking about dirt bags like you. See again my comments regarding his attitude towards chefs who took work from Trump. He has a low opinion of Trump and anybody who supports him. You can be a nice person and still be a dumb ass who votes for a candidate like Trump.

I've known lots of really nice people who are morons and I agree with Bourdain that we should be nicer to them and hope they can smarten the fuck up next time. There's no hope for morons who are also cunts like you, Lavite, Annotated etc.

Anthony Bourdain has 'contempt' for Trump hotel restaurateur


NEW YORK (AP) — A restaurant in President-elect Donald Trump's Washington hotel will remain "Parts Unknown" to celebrity chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain.

Bourdain tells foodie-focused website, Eater , that he will never eat in restaurateur Alessandro Borgognone's new sushi restaurant at Trump's hotel, adding that he has "utter and complete contempt" for Borgognone.

He also took a shot at another chef, David Burke, for taking over Jose Andres' planned restaurant at the hotel after Andres pulled out in protest of Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants.

The CNN host of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" suggested the motivation for Borgognone and Burke is to "get in good with the president" and make money.

yes, the Clinton camp ignored many in the rural rust belt, mid west and south, but those are the very people who will get burned under Trump.

They didn't have much choice as they weren't going to listen anyways. She could have campaigned in those areas and it would have been like talking to a brick wall. Most of those people vote Republican regardless of the political climate.

It's what makes blaming Hilary or the "liberals" oh, so so very dumb. As if some educated informed voter in NY has anything to do with some proudly ignorant bigoted shit heel's choice of candidate in rural Alabama.

She could have put more effort into rural PA instead of focusing on Philadelphia and its suburbs

The same could be sad for Michigan and Wisconsin.

Democrats have to face the facts that not everyone that voted trump are rightwing racist women hating shitheels like many of the freaks on this board. Clinton lost key working class and suburban constituencies that had gone Obama last time around and have voted Democrat from the Reagan days. That's who Trump is appealing to when he goes after GM or Ford for building factories in Mexico. And Bourdain is correct - they are not a bunch of freaks - they are hard working good people for the most part. And maybe concerned a little more about paying for Johnny's college than whether Johnny has a safe place at college.

Clinton lost key working class towns in PA because she did not show up in them. Her presence could have tipped some votes. Obama was a lot better at campaigning. he went into red counties in Ohio and flipped a few votes in his favor 2012. He consolidated his strong areas enough to hit his weak areas

Meh. I saw Bourdain say the exact same thing on the Bill Maher show around the 2012 election. Of course there are nice people in red states who vote conservative. Who doesn't know that? Bourdain didn't know that because he was a major league New York asshole his whole life until he travelled for his show. Now in mid-life, like some backpacking looser, he's discovering how wonderful people are all over. He says the same thing about Iran and the Gaza Strip--full of nice people who don't deserve our antipathy.

It is useless to look for all that scientific explanations. People got what they deserve. There are a lot of facts that all played together to make Trump win. It is not just 1 or 2 key facts but a lot.
The important question is what will Trump's presidency produce.
Prost!

A lot less frequently than we have to hear the stale and inane partisan bullshit from people like you who are relentlessly whinging about your failures in the last election and desperately looking for someone else to blame it on, apparently.
