These contemptible, boorish, uneducated white people who continue to stand with their Trump (and think we libtard cucks aren’t giving him enough credit for kicking ass on behalf of ‘Murica, fuck yeah!) : Are they descendants of the people who wanted to elect Archie Bunker?

During the 1972 election cycle, stupid white people wore “Archie Bunker for President” T-shirts. I was 9 years old, and thought this was a joke, like people writing in Mickey Mouse or Ronald McDonald. Today I see that those dumbasses were serious, and if they’re still alive, they’re wearing Make America Great Again caps — like their children, I surmise.

Like Donald Trump, Archie Bunker was a fat, bald bigot on television. Bunker was constantly at odds with his black dry cleaner and his liberal “meathead” son-in-law. And like Donald Trump, Archie Bunker had his own “Make America Great Again” message, which went something like “Oh, the way Glenn Miller played / Songs that made the hit parade / Guys like us, we had it made / THOSE WERE THE DAYS / And you knew who you were then / Girls were girls, and men were men / Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again / Didn’t need no welfare stakes / Everybody pulled his weight / Gee, our old LaSalle ran great / THOSE WERE THE DAAAAAYYYYYS”.

Archie Bunker’s days were when uppity niggers like Mr. Jefferson the dry cleaner weren’t upwardly mobile, they  were subservient to white men (like the women: “girls were girls and men were men”). As the explanation goes, Donald Trump’s “great America” is a euphemism for “white America”.

I see that I’m not too far off. I Googled “Archie Bunker” and the second match is “Donald Trump is Archie Bunker with more money, but it’s not funny“.
