You have heard the ugly, elitist term used by liberals/Democrats to describe conservatives/Republicans. You have heard that term
used by liberals often.
What you may not know is that the term originated as a bigoted, racial epithet used by black slaves against white slaves to whom they thought themselves superior. "White slaves?" you ask. Essentially, yes. In 1833 Fanny Kemble, an English actress visiting Georgia, noted in her journal: "The slaves themselves entertain the very highest contempt for white servants, whom they designate as 'poor white trash'". In 1854, Harriet Beecher Stowe in her book A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin wrote a chapter entitled "Poor White Trash". Stowe wrote that slavery not only produces "degraded, miserable slaves", but also poor whites who are even more degraded and miserable. Stowe also relates that both blacks and whites in the area look down on these "poor white trash" - a strong tradition of elitist bigotry, hypocrisy and sick-minded mean-spiritedness that the liberal rank-and-file proudly displays today.
So what is "Trailer Trash" by the dictionary definition? Strict definition by the left-leaning academician dictionaries such a Webster's defines the term merely to describe poor people in trailer parks - obviously an intentionally limited and misleading PC move to erase the unpleasant reverse-discrimination of the term's roots from the past, as it has nothing to do with the definition of the word from which the original synonym sprang. Colloquial-based dictionaries, more in tune with the common societal usage, however, are more honest.
Derogatory description for person who seems well-suited to residential life in a mobile home park and is distinguished by poor hygiene, foul language, slovenly or slutty clothing, and general ignorance. Recreations include drinking malt liquor in lawn chairs under tattered R.V. awning. Close synonym for poor white trash.
The extremely unhappy reality is that if you Google images of Trailer Trash, thanks to malicious liberal Obama trolls and ACORN activists online, you often see entirely unrelated pictures of Sarah Palin. Interestingly, she usually looks beautiful and extremely fashion-savvy, like this
popularity rating in the 80's, cutting across every demographic and political divide.
1. RUDE AND FOUL-MOUTHED and/or crude displays, ignorance, drug use and bigotry are usually associated with the Trailer Trash Stereotype. Here Obama gives the middle finger to Hillary Clinton during the campaign. Notice the titters and laughs and Obama's lingering pause as he makes sure everyone gets the joke:
2. IGNORANCE. Here he mispronounces corps as "corpse", something most reasonably-educated school children can manage to avoid:
3. DRUG USE In Dreams From My Father, Obama cites using a large quantities of drugs, later referencing cocaine, a powerful and highly addictive drug often associated with addicts when the user is not wealthy, and at that time, Obama was not wealthy. That was also 30 years ago, when cocaine use was generally reserved only for the hard-core drug user and addict.
4. BIGOTRY. Obama's bigotry is now becoming infamous. Here is a scene from the church in which he sat dutifully for 20 years before being found out during the election, at which point he pretended to not know what was going on in that same church.
5. Drinking beer in public sports events does not denote Trailer Trash in itself, but when you just got through giving someone the finger in public while stoned and calling them a racial epithet while mispronouncing it because you don't know the correct way to say it, that's Trailer Trash. Big time. Very big time.
OBAMAFAKE'S CONCLUSION: BARACK OBAMA MORE THAN QUALIFIES FOR THE TERM "TRAILER TRASH" AS USED BY HIS
Obamafake, in deference to the woman who volunteered that she only ever was proud of her country when the time had come that she could possibly become its First Lady, we will concentrate only on that most blistering of Trailer Trash definitions when it comes to women: FasHion.
Here is a shot of a commercially available Halloween costume of "Trailer Trash" called "Trailer Park Princess" (click here for the link) (bear in mind that this supposed to be a funny caricature!)
Here is a side-by-side comparison of MICHELLE OBAMA, THE TRAILER PARK PRINCESS.
Particularly note the sometimes almost Industrial Punk-style chest-belts, often bizarre, made of steel and plastic, which are not only a classic stereotype staple of Trailer Trash, but look darn fetching in old science fiction movies as well:
Ever-poised and dignified as the First Lady, Michelle adopts the bored and detached appearance in front of the camera of a mildly drunk housewife watching Jerry Springer while her kids play with frayed electrical cords in the bathtub.
While it is admittedly unfair to drag these hapless souls into the picture, liberals delight at attacking the relatives of conservatives and Republicans, such as, particularly as of late, Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol. Therefore in the spirit of ethical journalistic fairness and equal time, we make this very brief overview, and will clearly demonstrate our superiority over the mainstream media by not maliciously gloating endlessly. While colorful phrases such a "transgender pimp from 1972" may come to mind, we will let the reader make up their own minds about the style and couture of Obama's Aunt and Uncle, both illegal immigrants who, at least when it comes to deportation, apparently have a glaring contempt for the law.

(apparently that's no joke)
