NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Donald Trump is known as a straight-talker. He is beloved by his fans for not being politically correct, for saying what he thinks and not caring who he might offend.
Yet, Trump is still pandering, despite his reputation, because he does not have the guts to tell his followers the real Tea Party truth: Its not just the liberals in Washington that offend their core values, but the inexorable march of corporate cultural power. Like it or not, corporate America domesticates or marginalizes many traditional currents of American culture.
The anti-PC movement, like the Tea Party, is not just anti-liberal and anti-Washington, it is also, sometimes only subconsciously, anti-corporate.
