Donald Trump’s Racist Claim About Prayer Rugs Found at the Border

Racist

“On Friday, Donald Trump tweeted the headline to a recent Washington Examiner story, which read: Border rancher we`ve found prayer rugs out here. It`s unreal. As the headline suggests, the story is about a New Mexico rancher who claims to have seen prayer rugs-typically used by observers of Islam-near the U.S.-Mexico border. After the headline, Trump added this: People coming across the Southern Border from many countries, some of which would be a big surprise.

Vanity Fair

In Donald Trump`s announcement speech he set a tone for his campaign and for his administration:

When Mexico sends its people, they`re not sending their best. They`re not sending you. They`re not sending you. They`re sending people that have lots of problems and they`re bringing those problems with us. They`re bringing drugs, they`re bringing crime, they`re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”

Trump`s anti-Hispanic immigration rhetoric has been a constant drumbeat during his administration. He ramped up the demonization of brown immigrants in the weeks before the midterm elections. Who can forget the infamous web video — produced for the Trump campaign – featuring the notorious Mexican national, Louis Bracamontes, who was convicted of killing two California deputies?

Trump is once again ratcheting up his anti-immigration rhetoric in a desperate attempt to convince the American public that he is right in refusing to agree to a compromise to fund the government that doesn`t include five billion for his beloved wall.

But this time Trump is adding anti-Muslim hate speech to his vitriolic mix of racism. The racist-in-chief tweeted a headline from the ultraconservative Washington Examiner that quoted a border rancher claiming to have found prayer rugs. Of course Trump realizes that his racist base will conflate Muslim prayer rugs with Islamic terrorists.

The Washington Examiner story is totally bogus, the rancher quoted in the article isn`t identified and she didn`t provide any photographic or video evidence of her magical prayer rugs. Those prayer rugs are as real as Trump`s proposed 30-foot concrete wall between Mexico and the United States.

We mustn`t allow Trump`s noxious anti-immigrant rhetoric to persuade us that we need a wall, and I hope the Democrats remain steadfast and won`t give him a dime for his accursed wall.

The MAGA Bomber is Representative of Donald Trump’s Cultists

Authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc, 56, now and forever to be known as the MAGA bomber, in connection with a series of explosive devices there were mailed to prominent Democratic leaders over the past week.

I would have a hard time saying MAGA philosopher, MAGA scientist or MAGA professor, but the words “MAGA bomber” roll of the tongue.

Batman has his Batmobile and the MAGA bomber has his MAGA van, the side and back windows of the van are covered in disturbing collages of Republican iconography and anti-Democratic memes.

The TV Batman of the 60`s was a campy figure, but there`s nothing campy or ironic about the MAGA bomber. The MAGA bomber is as subtle and nuanced as a sledgehammer, I imagine that in a conversation he would just repeat the memes and slogans that cover his vehicle.

The MAGA Van is a disturbing piece of art, it has images of Donald Trump, the American flag, and there are also red targets superimposed over progressive icons like Hillary Clinton, Michael Moore and Barack Obama.

The same violent imagery also appeared on the MAGA bomber`s Twitter feed, which has been taken down. But why in the name of God wasn`t it taken down before, violent images and hateful words are just as destructive as bullets and bombs.

Unfortunately, the MAGA bomber isn`t an aberration, he`s representative of Trump`s ignorant and racist cultists. I see the same wild-eyed rage and intolerance for minorities at Trump rallies.

Most Trump followers are able to restrain themselves somewhat, and although they may have only one “CNN Sucks” bumper sticker, they are full of the same pent-up rage as the MAGA bomber.

Trump isn`t destroying our democracy by himself, he has the tacit support of Republican leaders, and the undying devotion of his base.

Vote on November 6, 2018 as if the MAGA bomber is living next door, or as if he is your child`s teacher, because the MAGA Bomber`s mentality has infected a significant section of our society.

We must rid our democracy of Donald Trump and his MAGA followers.

In Trump’s America Racists Feel Emboldened to Call Blacks the N-word

“A white woman was hospitalized following an altercation where she called a group of people the N-word on the X2 Metrobus.

Video emerged on Twitter showing the woman getting into an argument with another passenger. As the white woman begins walking off the bus near 2nd and H streets in Northeast D.C., she calls the other passenger the N-word.

The video shows the woman exiting the bus before cutting to a clip where she is on the ground, bloodied up.”

WPGC

Donald Trump has enabled racists to the point where they call the police on black folks for barbequing while black, sleeping in a university lounge area while black, redeeming coupons while black, selling bottles of water while black, swimming in a community pool while black …

They call the cops on people of color knowing that police interactions with minorities often leads to their injury or death.

The mere existence of people of color in Trump`s America is an affront to these racists. Pre-Trump they used the N-word in their country clubs, fraternal organizations and in their private residences, but now they feel so emboldened that they brazenly call African Americans niggers in public.

This fuc*ing moron white lady, most likely a Trump supporter, called a group of bus passengers the N-Word while riding the X2 Metrobus, a bus line that serves the inner city.

I commuted to work on a bus in Oakland, CA, and believe me everyone`s emotions are on hair trigger when you are packed like sardines in a smelly noisy bus. Yelling “nigger” on an inner-city bus is nothing short of a death wish, the bus passengers should be commended for simply beating her, and not killing her.

Minorities suffer so many indignities at the hands of the white power structure, that I`m amazed the passengers showed mercy on this vile creature.

Trump can get away with his blatant racism because he`s always surrounded by Secret Service agents, but the average racist isn`t afforded such protection, and he/she ain`t going to get away with using vile racist slurs in public.
