Trump is Campaigning on a Platform of Racism and Praising an Economy That’s Been Destroyed by the Coronavirus

Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, to a large extent, because he succeeded in demonizing “Crooked Hilary”. He persuaded a jaded electorate that they should bet on him, because the Republican establishment represented by the likes of “Low Energy” Jeb Bush and the Democratic establishment symbolized by the likes of e-mail deleting Hillary Clinton had so utterly failed to improve the lives of working class and middle-class Americans.

It wasn’t difficult for Trump to demonize a politician who reeked of the sulfur of corruption and elitism. Trump didn’t win because the electorate loved him, they simply hated him less than Hillary, and they wanted to send the message that they were sick and tired of the establishment.

The election is only four months away, but Trump hasn’t focused on demonizing Joe Biden. Trump’s half-hearted efforts to criticize Biden as “Sleepy Joe” hasn’t gained any traction, and he has to ramp up his “trash talk” if he wants to take down Biden a peg or two.

I don’t blame Trump for ignoring Biden, voters had a visceral hatred of Clinton and she was an easy candidate to run against, but people tend to look endearingly at Joe Biden.

Instead of attacking Biden, Trump is running on how great the economy is, or should I say was before it was crushed by the coronavirus pandemic.  

Against all evidence to the contrary Trump is pushing the false narrative that the COVID-19 pandemic is petering out and it will soon miraculously disappear.

And above all else Trump is doubling down and tripling down on racism, wrapping himself in the Confederate flag, and declaring himself the protector of Confederate statues and monuments.

Trump’s campaign platform of extolling an economy that has now been shattered, playing down a pandemic that is raging out of control, and fanning the flames of racism guarantees that he will suffer a defeat of landslide proportions.

Fox News Crops Trump Out of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell Photo

“Fox News apparently cropped President Donald Trump out of a photograph with Jeffrey Epstein on Sunday, during the network’s coverage of the arrest of Ghislane Maxwell.

The edited photo aired on America’s News Headquarters while anchor Leland Vittert reported on Maxwell’s arrest and the charges against her in connection with Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex crimes.

Mediaite.Com

Fox News creates an alternate reality where Donald Trump is a wise, eloquent, compassionate and courageous commander-in-chief. To that end Fox News cropped the short-fingered vulgarian out of a photograph with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislane Maxwell.

They shouldn’t have resorted to digital manipulation the majority of Americans are cognizant that Trump is a racist, evil, vulgar and cowardly tyrant, and his base will always believe that he’s the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, regardless what obscenities he commits.

If a video was uncovered that depicted Trump having an orgy with the Antichrist, Lindsey (Lady G) Graham, Aileen Wuronos’ corpse and a dozen Russian hookers, he wouldn’t lose any evangelical support.

Trump’s white evangelical base will never live in the real world as long as they have Fox News, fringe Web sites, YouTube conspiracy theory videos and their twisted interpretation of the Bible.

How Trump must laugh at the ignorance of his evangelical base as Mike Pence licks his ass every morning and a prostitute services him every night.

A Desperate Trump is Doubling Down on Racism

Donald Trump isn’t a conservative like Ronald Reagan who had a clearly delineated philosophy of building up our military to bankrupt the Evil Empire and implementing supply-side economics to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.

Trump isn’t even a conservative, but he became a Republican out of political expediency because his racism and nationalism resonated with the white evangelicals who would tip the presidential election in his favor.

From the surreal moment when Trump descended the golden escalator at Trump Tower to announce his presidency by calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, he’s made racism the central focus of his political rhetoric.

But what were once dog whistles and winks and nods are now clarion calls celebrating white nationalism. In the time of a pandemic and a time of racial reckoning the stable genius is pretending the pandemic isn’t raging out-of-control and isn’t making any effort whatsoever to unite Americans.

Because the short-fingered vulgarian is sinking in the polls, he’s doubling down on racism: Defending Confederate statues, saying “black lives matter” is a symbol of hate, and posting blatantly racist videos on Twitter.

Trump is destined for an ignominious defeat in November, and if Republicans want to survive as a viable national party now is the time to reject Trump and his racism. But I don’t see that happening and for the foreseeable future the GOP will be tarnished by Trump’s racism.

If I’m wrong and Trump is reelected the American experiment will end and America will become the land of the fascists and the home of the racists.

Uncle Tom Herman Cain Hospitalized with Coronavirus Days After Attending Tulsa MAGA Rally

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has been hospitalized with COVID-19 less than two weeks after attending the disastrous Tulsa MAGA rally. Cain posted a photo on Twitter of himself at the ill-fated rally, seating shoulder-to-shoulder with other maskless morons.

Cain attended the rally in his capacity as the co-founder of “Black Voices for Trump.” That’s as insane as a Jewish person founding a group called, “Jewish Voices for Hitler.”

A spokesperson for the Uncle Tom described the 73-year-old as “resting comfortably” at an Atlanta-area hospital. Although Cain isn’t on a ventilator, nobody rests comfortably at a hospital.

Just hours before he was admitted to the hospital Cain sent a tweet promoting a Trump event in South Dakota where masks wouldn’t be mandatory.

“Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump,” he said. “PEOPLE ARE FED UP!”

What people are fed up with are Uncle Toms who support a blatantly racist president who rejects science and refuses to wear a mask in public.

As Cain “rests comfortably” at the hospital I hope he contemplates his mortality and considers the wisdom of mocking those who wear a mask in the face of a pandemic. And I sure as hell hope he considers the morality of supporting a racist president.

Donald Trump Jr: ‘It’s Not too Complicated to Wear a Mask’

“Donald Trump Jr. said Tuesday that masks should be worn during the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville, Fla., with the president’s eldest son stating the precaution is “not too complicated” to help ensure the event is carried out safely and appropriately.”

The Hill

As the coronavirus pandemic spikes in the South and West, Republican leaders are finally pushing back against the notion that masks are about politics, as Donald Trump suggests.

The head of the White House Coronavirus Task Force Vice President Mike Pence has finally seen the light and has started wearing a mask in public and urging Americans to follow his lead. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell instructed Americans to wear one when they are unable to maintain social distance.  

And now even Donald Trump Jr. said that masks should be worn during the Republican National Convention.

The president remains the only noteworthy GOP leader who is still peddling the dangerous notion that wearing a mask is about politics and not public safety. If Trump donned a mask in public and urged his supporters to do the same the curve might finally be flattened.

After all, Trump’s supporters will do anything their false messiah tells them to do. If Trump orders them to jump off a cliff, they would leap off the cliff while screaming, “I love Trump!” If Trump told them to wear their underwear as a face covering to protect them from the coronavirus, they would immediately take off their dirty drawers and cover their faces.

The same way that Donald Trump Jr. would urge his senile old dad to zip up his pants before facing the press, he should convince the doddering old stable genius to wear a mask in public.

Trump’s Retweet of ‘White Power’ Video Shows He is Doubling Down on Racism

President Donald Trump’s disastrous mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and his failure to unite Americans in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder has eroded his support among suburban women, senior citizens and independent voters.

Trump has responded by doubling down on racism in a desperate attempt to keep his racist white evangelical supporters from deserting him.

Charlottesville taught us that the racist-in-chief thinks that white supremacists and Nazis are fine people, now he is calling them “great people.”

On Sunday Trump tweeted approvingly of a video depicting one of his supporters screaming “White Power”, not one but twice. He retweeted the video featuring the racist chant with this message:

“Thank you to the great people of The Villages. “

Trump later deleted the toxic tweet and the White House said he had not heard “the one statement” on the video. Trump is so lazy and impulsive that I wouldn’t be surprised if he posted the minutes-long video to his 80 million followers without doing due diligence and making sure it didn’t contain any offensive comments. But the “White Power” screams came only eight seconds into the video, and there’s no way in hell he wasn’t aware of his racist supporter screaming “White Power.”

Trump is no longer bothering with dog whistles, his polices and rhetoric are a clarion call for racism. Trump is a blatant racist, and anyone who supports him is a racist.

Trump’s Refusal to Wear a Mask Will Result in Death of His Campaign

During his entire tenure, Trump has suffered many self-inflicted wounds, but his mistakes and irresponsible actions during the coronavirus pandemic and the racial unrest following the murder of George Floyd have assured that he will be a one-term president.

Trump’s chaotic response to the COVID-19 pandemic is best illustrated by his self-defeating resistance to donning a mask. His stubborn stance, mimicked by his base undercuts efforts by public health officials to flatten the curve.

Not wearing a mask has become a sign of allegiance to the science-denying commander-in-chief, and his sycophants look askance at anyone wearing a mask in public. If Trump’s followers were as eager to put on a mask as they are to wear a MAGA hat we would make progress against the spread of the coronavirus.

By not wearing a mask Trump is playing with fire, he’s setting a bad example that will result in non-compliance by his supporters, and the spread of the virus that will in turn impede efforts to revive the economy.

But Trump’s greatest gamble is that his penchant for not wearing a mask will result in him being infected with the coronavirus. A morbidly obese septuagenarian with a history of heart disease is at great risk of dying from the virus. Even if he catches the coronavirus and survives it will be a death blow to his reelection chances. The optics of the stable genius smitten by the coronavirus would be a metaphor of how he has completely screwed up his response to the pandemic.

White Evangelical Pastors Vow to Defend Statues of White Surfer Dude Jesus

“A group of evangelical pastors gathered at Seattle’s CHOP zone earlier this week to pray and declare that they will defend houses of worship and statues of Jesus after activists called for tearing them down amid Black Lives Matter protests.”

Fox News
White evangelicals seem to be unfamiliar with the basic tenets of their faith, the first of the Ten Commandments prohibits making any statues of Jesus or any other heavenly being:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Evangelicals should be leading the charge to topple these graven images, the blond surfer dude Jesus statues are a sacrilegious abomination, a historical misrepresentation and an aesthetical nightmare.

But I’m not surprised that white evangelicals worship their white Jesus statues, after all they worship an orange anti-Christ.

The historical dark brown or black Jesus would be appalled at the spectacle of evangelicals defending these vile statues.

Instead of defending statues of Jesus, evangelicals should be defending the Gospel message of peace, unity and love. But if these reprobates embrace an amoral buffoon who is the antithesis of everything that the Bible teaches, I’m not surprised they are defending graven images.

Trump’s Comeback Tulsa MAGA rally an Unmitigated Disaster. Humiliated Beyond Belief!

A MAGA rally is a toxic mixture of revival tent meeting, KKK rally and carnival sideshow, presided over by an orange buffoon who is treated like the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

The dregs of society are drawn to these grand spectacles like flies are drawn to a steaming pile of dung. The rednecks, white evangelicals, white supremacists and assorted riff-raff who attend these political rallies are energized and emboldened in their hateful and racist ideology as they feed off the dog whistles and red meat their fearless leader so promiscuously dishes out. There’s a sucker born every minute and all these marks consider it a religious obligation to attend these festivals of intolerance and racism.

The racist-in-chief is also energized by his MAGA shit shows, they are oxygen for is inflated ego and he views them as evidence of his political potency. Trump is lambasted by pundits, educators, theologians and everyday people who are repulsed by his vulgarity, vanity and racism, but he knows that at a MAGA rally he will be treated like a rock God.

Trump was desperate to get back on the campaign trail, coronavirus pandemic be damned. The amoral authoritarian calculated that he could pretend the crisis was over and his science-denying evangelical base would still flock to his rallies.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale bragged that over one million people had registered to attend Trump’s first rally held during the pandemic. In fact, he was so confident that the 19,000 arena would sell out, that he built an outdoor stage to handle the overflow crowd.

Imagine Trump’s disappointment and humiliation when there were literally only a couple of dozen people meandering around the outside stage, and only 6,200 supporters inside the arena. I’m surprised that morbidly obese charlatan didn’t suffer a heart attack as he gazed on empty row after empty row of blue seats.

Trump may peddle the fake news that the pandemic is over, but his multitude of MAGA-heads had enough sense not to attend an indoor event where they would be packed like sardines, especially considering that the coronavirus is surging in Tulsa.

Trump’s comeback rally was a disaster of Biblical proportions and we know that he doesn’t read the holy book but maybe he will read the writing on the wall: Americans are sick and tired of you and your ever-shrinking racist base won’t be enough to save your racist ass.

Mike Pence Refuses to Say: Black Lives Matter

“Vice President Mike Pence wouldn’t say the words ‘black lives matter’ when specifically asked to say them in an interview with a local ABC affiliate in Philadelphia. The interview took place on Friday, Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.

He instead said what happened to George Floyd was a tragedy and said: ‘In this nation, especially on, on Juneteenth, we celebrate the fact that from the founding of this nation, we cherish the ideal that all, all of us are created equal and endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. And so, all lives matter in a very real sense.’”

CBS News

In an interview about Juneteenth, a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of slaves in the United States, it would have been the most appropriate time for Vice President Mike Pence to exclaim, “Black Lives Matter”.

Mike Pence repeatedly declined to utter the words “Black lives matter” during the interview with the ABC affiliate in Pennsylvania on Friday, instead saying that “all lives matter.”

It’s like pulling teeth to get anyone in the racist Trump administration to acknowledge the dignity and humanity of African Americans. In the aftermath of the cold-blooded murder of George Floyd, the latest in an endless string of black men killed by police, when millions of Americans are protesting in cities, towns and villages all over our country, it’s political malpractice and an unpardonable sin for Pence not to acknowledge that there’s systemic racism in the police department and in our society at large by saying: Black Lives Matter!

It’s axiomatic that all lives matter, but it’s not whites who are systematically being executed by cops, it’s blacks who are being hunted down like dogs. In this context it’s foolish and disingenuous to say “all lives matter”, the only sensible response to this institutionalized racism is to scream, “Black Lives Matter.

After almost four years of the racist rhetoric and racist policies of the Trump administration, it’s abundantly clear that white lives, blue lives and redneck lives matter to them, but they don’t believe that Black Lives Matter!

If you believe that all lives matter, including black lives, on November 3, 2020 vote for Joe Biden, the only candidate who will run his administration as if Black Lives Matter!
