In what is increasingly becoming a problem for our national identity, self-avowed Trump supporters are outright refusing to assimilate into America’s culture of tolerance and diversity, and, instead, keeping to their traditional, radical, insular cultural customs of racism, sexism, and lurid fashion choices.
“I don’t want to say ‘these people,'” explained local city resident Ralph Trimmings, “But I can’t help but notice that Trump supporters are not sharing our American values. They yell at hispanics in grocery stores and on the street, they’re increasingly committing hate crimes against Jews who they call ‘globalists,’ and they’re largely homophobic. They want all these things, like a wall, draconian immigration policies, and jailed journalists that just are not what America has been about…at all. I don’t want to say that Trump supporters aren’t welcome here, I just wish they would adapt to America more. You know? If they’re going to live here, they could try to learn how to live like us. The country I love is not a place where people commit casual racism and xenophobia like they do!”
Other citizens expressed discomfort with Trump supporters’ clothing customs.
“Those bright red hats just make me worry every time I see one,” said Sarah Heller, a resident of the Central West End. “It’s like, are they going to commit a terror attack? Am I in danger? I don’t understand why they would cover themselves that way, with that kind of oppressive symbolism. It just seems so fundamentalist to display in public like they do. Do they have to throw their unAmerican way of life in my face?”
Trump supporters’ lack of love for democracy is also a big concern for Americans.
“From the way they view the world, they don’t care much for democracy,” worried Hank Banderhoff of South City. “Maybe it’s a cultural difference, but they don’t seem to respect our American institutions of democracy. Whatever Trump does, they’re okay with. It’s really unsettling. I don’t think they understand our Constitution and laws, and I don’t believe they have taken the time to learn about our great country. I try to keep an open mind, but it’s very obvious that they’re not quite fitting in, if you know what I mean.”
