Whitlock: 2020 Election About The Power Of Love Versus The Power Of Hate, Trump's Supporters Love Him

|

Outkick's Jason Whitlock said the 2020 election is about love versus hate and Trump supporters voted for the president because they love him and haters voted for Biden. Whitlock told FOX News host Tucker Carlson the same is not true for people who voted for Biden, they voted out of hate of Trump and not out of love for Biden.

"We're a society that seems to be embracing and favoring hate and empowering hate," Whitlock said. "If this election swings for Biden, it's a statement about hate and its power to conquer love if supported by what I believe is corruption."

"I think this 2020 election shows the power of love versus the power of hate," Whitlock told Carlson. "Again, I'm not talking about Donald Trump and Joe Biden specifically, they're not the parable of love versus hate. I'm talking about their supporters. Donald Trump's support is coming from people who love Donald Trump, who unconditionally love Donald Trump. To the point that they will risk their health and go maskless to rallies with thousands of people. They will risk their reputations to be accused of being racist and sexist. They will risk their safety in terms of being attacked by Antifa or Black Lives Matter. They love Donald Trump."


"Biden supporters hate Donald Trump," he said. "That is their energy source. It has nothing to do with Joe Biden. This is about can you take hate and turn that into something that is a winning formula for you. Is hate a more powerful motivation for his base of supporters? Is that how we're going to be deciding elections and decide who we support? Can we rally enough hate of the opponent to win an election?"

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: Jason, thanks for coming on. What you think we have learned about the differences between campaigns and the voters?

I think it's a sad statement about where we are as a society as it relates to politics. I think it's a sad statement on where we are in terms of our relationship. This was a country founded on Judeo-Christian values and we are moving completely away from that. God is the embodiment of love and we're a society that seems to be embracing and favoring hate and empowering hate. If this election swings for Biden, it's a statement about hate and its power to conquer love if supported by what I believe is corruption.


On his Outkick show today, Whitlock called the 2020 race an election between love and hate:
