Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is now speaking up for the entire South and saying what people really think. This is HUGE because most of Trump’s support comes from the conservative Republican South.
If Dale Jr. hadn’t spoken up, most people would have continued to carry on and assume he is a Trump supporter like his Southern counterpart Jeff Foxworthy. Now that Dale spoke his mind, people know he is anti-Trump.
The Twitter conversation sparked when Twitter user and confirmed Muslim @GelarBudidarma questioned Dale’s thoughts on Donald Trump’s Muslim ban.
Dale Tweeted this is response:
[email protected] my fam immigrated from Germany in 1700s escaping religious persecution. America is created by immigrants.”
NASCAR may not be the most popular sport in the U.S., but it carries a ton of weight down South. Additionally, the Charlotte Observer reports the son of Nascar legend Dale Earnhardt won the title of NASCAR’s most popular driver thirteen times.
His fans hearing his opinion could send shockwaves through the South and make some who fully believe in Trump begin to question him.
Twitter users thanked Jr.:
“Thank you Mr. Earnhardt. We need more prominent Southern voices to speak out.”
“Thank you, sir. You’re a model for those who worry taking a stand might cost them something.”
How do you think this will affect the political landscape in the South?
