Psychology Study Says Trump Voters Are More Homophobic, Islamaphobic, And Sexist

A new psychological study released this week shows that researchers were accurately able to predict a person’s voting patterns – specifically whether they voted for Trump or Clinton in 2016 – based on previous interviews that determined the level of sexism, homophobia, or Islamophobia that a person exhibited. This study helps to confirm claims that Trump voters are far more racist and sexist and that those traits helped push Trump into the White House, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION: LGBTQ COUPLES’ KIDS AREN’T CITIZENS A government policy that de-recognizes parents’ marriage means that some immigrant children can lose automatic rights to American birthright citizenship, despite the fact that their parents are U.S. citizens. That policy poses a unique threat to LGBTQ families, and could change the decades-old legal understanding of what the word “family” even means. [Daily Beast]

NEW BILL WOULD HARM CHILDREN A new bill from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) would harm undocumented immigrant children by detaining them longer and allowing officials to send them back to life-threatening situations in their home countries. Immigrant rights advocates argue it wouldn’t even deter undocumented families from coming to the U.S. [HuffPost]

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that the Trump administration is considering conducting a nationwide militarized sweep to arrest 10,000 immigrants: here.

  2. President Trump, Vice President Pence, Liz Cheney & the GOP leadership in Congress are, once again, attacking an Arab American Muslim woman in Congress. This time their target is Rep. Rashida Tlaib. They are grossly distorting what Rashida said in a crass attempt to advance their campaign to divide Americans based on religion, race, & national origin.

    We need to defend Rashida against these attacks. Donate $5 to her campaign and Our Revolution right now – don’t let them go unanswered.

    Lest we forget, it’s the GOP that has courted homophobes, misogynists, anti-Semites, racists, & Islamophobes. President Trump called the white supremacists and Neo-Nazis that were chanting “Jews will not replace us” while marching through the streets of Charlottesville “very fine people.” And just this week, Trump invited to the White House a far-right Hungarian leader who rose to power exploiting anti-Semitism and the fear of immigrants.

    In the face of these outrages by their president, the GOP has been silent, but when it serves their agenda of using anti-Muslim fear and bigotry to incite their base, they’re all in. And so they leapt to the attack against Rashida, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and other women of color who are fierce advocates for our movement. They have used their bully pulpit to stoke fear and resentment of minority communities that are finally being represented in the People’s House.

    Rashida is the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress. In telling the history of Palestine, she recently spoke of the time after the Holocaust when Jews sought refuge and a new state was established. But that’s not what Republicans and right-wing media reported.

    Holding a light to the ugly stains of discrimination that are seeping through the modern Republican Party is not enough of a response to these attacks, or the current context of our political environment. Being satisfied now that Rashida, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and other history-making women of color have been elected to Congress is not enough to create the change we need.

    The only force capable of defeating the bigotry, injustice, and hypocrisy that exist in our politics today is a complete political revolution that recenters our priorities around achieving racial, social, economic, and environmental justice.

    Rashida is an important leader who Our Revolution was proud to support during her primary campaign last year. She is creating the space to open up our party to more progressives like her by being fearless in the face of GOP attacks. Make a $5 contribution to help continue this vital work today.

    Thank you for taking action.
