A good question when Oren Cass ’05 asked it last month. An even better one after last night’s sweep. What do EphBlog’s readers think?
My opinions now are the same as in December:
1) Who is the most prominent Eph supporter of Trump? I have trouble naming a single person. Help us out readers! It could be that I (David Dudley Field ‘1824) am the most prominent. I am still hopeful that a member of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, Eph Division, will sign up for the Trump campaign. How about Mike Needham ’04, Oren Cass ’05 or James Hitchcock ’15?
2) The fact that no one (?) on the Williams faculty thinks that Trump could possibly become President is a sign of intellectual group think.
3) The fact that no one (?) on the faculty will vote for Trump is an indicator of the lack of ideological diversity at Williams.
4) There are probably many Trump supporters among the white working class of Williams employees. The Record ought to interview them.
Trump will be the next President of the United States because a large majority of voters want to end/decrease illegal (and legal) immigration, especially by Muslims and poor people. All good Williams faculty members find such opinions offensive. Adam Falk banned John Derbyshire (at least partially) because he shares Trumps views on these topics. Who will Falk ban next?
