Minorities Oppose Majorities: Irish Edition

Over in the newly-halfway-rightist Wall Street Journal, James Taranto writes:

Libertarian humor writer P.J. O’Rourke endorsed Hillary Clinton for president back in May, arguing that she is the lesser of evils—or, as he put it, “the second worst thing that can happen to this country.” He added: “But she’s way behind in second place. I mean, she’s wrong about absolutely everything, but she’s wrong within normal parameters.”

Any minority group will never identify with the majority. Those who see themselves as a minority will always work against the majority in order to provide a place for themselves, and an identity other than as hired labor for the majority. O’Rourke, an Irish-American, therefore identifies with anything other than Trump’s indirect defense of WASP America.
