Well...well...well...what have we here?

In 1927, Donald Trump’s father was arrested after a Klan riot in Queens

WaPo

Golly, why doesn't Donald J Trump denounce white supremacists? Because apples don't fall far from the tree. smile

At 3:36pm EDT 8/12/17, Andrew Anglin, editor of Daily Stormer a neo-Nazi website, had this to say about Trump's speech:

Quote:
There was virtually no counter-signaling us at all

He said he loves us all

Also refused to answer question about white nationalists supporting him

No condemnation at all

When asked to condemn, walked out of the room

Really, really good

God bless him

There is this thing call Internet Death: Not much used anymore, but if you were a real jerk and clogged up the internet in it's early days you suffered this penalty. A list of IP numbers was circulated and nobody would connect with you. Your internet connection was dead. All gateways and routers would just drop your packets.

A scathing rebuke of Donald J Trump by Politico:

Quote:
Ford, Ronald Reagan and Bush knew full well that the overwhelming majority of black voters would not be voting for them, but they could not permit such remarks to be deemed “acceptable.” These Republican presidents showed they understood that there were not “many sides” to a controversy when someone gives the back of his hand to one group of Americans or another, much less when someone turns his bigotry into a murderous attack on protesters.

Indeed, there was a time, not that long ago, when Republicans would actually campaign for the votes of African-Americans. Reagan gave a memorable speech to the Urban League in 1980, detailing what he called the failure of liberalism to make life better for American blacks. George W. Bush’s 2000 campaign speeches talked extensively about the failing schools in minority neighborhoods and “the soft bigotry of low expectations.”

And Trump? The simplest explanation is that “nationalism”—an outlook championed by Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller, and celebrated in his acceptance and inaugural speeches—is what’s behind Trump’s unwillingness to condemn the racists at Charlottesville. But think about it: Would any halfway rational political mind think that in condemning neo-Nazis and Klansmen, you would risk losing any part of your broader base? That crowd of losers in Charlottesville was tiny—no more than a few hundred people. Is there anything more than a small fragment of Trump’s supporters who genuinely sympathize with the white hoods and swastikas?

Recent events and Trumps response have made many things clear, among them: If you are a supporter of Trump (I used to just include followers) you are a racist. Period. No ifs, ands or buts about it. There is no excuse. You would also be just plain stupid.

Donald J Trump ( I just can't bring myself to write 'President' ) just delivered surprise remarks from the White House, today MO AUG 14th 2017, in the face of mounting criticism that he failed to condemn white supremacy following the Charlottesville terror attack - declaring “racism is evil,” and specifically condemning racist groups.

Sorry, but this is a little too late. His own wife did a better job two days ago.

Just as Donald J Trump a business failure with his six business bankruptcies because ALL of his branded start-up companies have gone under, Donald J Trump is a failure as President of the United States and Leader of the Free World.

Donald J Trump a complete and utter disgrace to America.

Every hour between "many sides" and "Nazis are bad, mkay?" screams "psycopath."

We need to take him down just like the statues of Robert E. Lee. He is a malignant tumor on the body politic.

Both of you are being far too gracious.

Nazism has always been a right-sided political spectrum philosophy.

...and the KKK was never "left wing." The KKK has always been CONservative. CONseratism has always been about racism and bigotry.

Yes, CONservative Democrats started the KKK and even wrote Jim Crow laws.

In 1964 when the Civil Rights Act was signed, CONservative Democrats switched to the Republican party to spite Lyndon Johnson. Richard Nixon also recruited the CONservative Democrats under his "Southern Strategy" effort.

While some CONservative Democrats remain in the Democratic party today and they're called Blue Dog Democrats, most CONservatives are in the Republican Party, today.


Racism and bigotry are not a Democrat or Republican ideology, but racism and bigotry are 100% CONservative ideologies.

The takeaway: CONservatism is the common thread to Democrat and Republican racism and bigotry AND to rightwing political philosophies like Nazism.



Rick, why are you telling all of us that?
We know, LOL.
Tell that to all the mental midgets who have invested millions of dollars to spread the revisionist view...HAR!
