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!

In the Midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic Trump Returns to the Campaign Trail

Donald Trump filed for reelection the day he was inaugurated, and from the first day of his administration his focus has been on his reelection. Trump is unencumbered trying to fulfill an ideological agenda, the amoral charlatan’s only agenda is his reelection.

As John Bolton’s memoir so vividly illustrates Trump will do anything to ensure his reelection, including seeking the help of dictators and betraying the interests of America.

Trump is eager to get back on the campaign trail, he enjoys campaigning more than he does being president. It’s manifestly evident that he is totally incompetent, unqualified, and ineffectual at being commander-in-chief, but he’s an excellent campaigner.

Trump is frustrated beyond belief he has been unable to hit the campaign trail because of the coronavirus pandemic. He tried to turn his daily coronavirus press briefings into MAGA-style campaign events, until his advice to ingest disinfectants to combat the virus blew up in his face.

America is still in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Trump is so desperate that he’s holding a massive rally in Tulsa, Okla., at a time when the coronavirus infections there are rising steeply.

To hold an indoor rally where social distancing is impossible, and Trump’s supporters won’t be wearing masks and screaming their fool head’s off is scientifically foolish, legally criminal, and ethically immoral.

Trump doesn’t care about the health of his supporters and he isn’t interested in flattening the curve, his sole imperative is to be reelected.

The social unrest following the murder of George Floyd, the coronavirus pandemic and the tanking of our economy has forced Trump of center stage, and his outrageous tweets aren’t enough to keep the spotlight on him.

So, Trump is resuming his MAGA rallies, and his base is thrilled to bask in the presence of their false messiah once again. But the interconnected crises gripping the country have changed the political landscape, and Trump’s utter disregard for flattening the curve and disinterest in uniting the country will embolden Democrats to turn out to vote and Independents to turn against him.

White Evangelicals Claim to Hate Sin, but love Sinners! Yeah, Right! Homophobic Hypocrites!

White evangelical Christians rail against lesbians, gays, and transgender individuals, and they consider homosexuality the greatest sin in the world, and the main reason why the Almighty is angry with America.

Evangelicals preach that God will Make America Great like the golden 50’s when every red-blooded American was white, heterosexual and Christian. They also preach that America will be great again, if same-sex marriage is banned and gays are prohibited from adopting children and from serving in the military.

They have the temerity to insist that they love the sinner but hate the sin. The operative word is “sinner”, they love gays and lesbians only if they debase themselves, reject their nature and convert to a straight lifestyle.

It’s worth noting that the Bible doesn’t consider same-sex love the greatest sin in the world, homosexuality is only mentioned a handful of times, whereas the sins of pride, envy and self-righteousness are mentioned hundreds of times.

Evangelicals zero in on homosexuality because their congregations are full of prideful, envious, and self-righteous hypocrites while gays and lesbians are in the minority. It’s so much more convenient to ostracize and demonize the sexual minority.

Evangelicals like Franklin Graham got their panties in a twist when the Supreme Court ruled that gay, lesbian and transgender employees are protected by federal civil rights law. This is evidence, not that any more is needed, that evangelicals despise gays and lesbians, and consider them subhuman sinners who don’t deserve basic human rights. What ever happened to “live and let live”?

I love white evangelicals, but I hate their sins of hypocrisy, self-righteousness, bigotry, and their just plain un-Christian behavior.

Uncle Tom Ben Carson Says Trump Will Ease Up On Athletes Who Kneel During National Anthem

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, political analyst, or a psychologist to deduce that Donald Trump is exploiting the racial divide and harping on cultural issues to cement his standing with his base.

Ever since Colin Kaepernick first knelt during the playing of the National Anthem to protest police brutality and racial discrimination some four years ago, Trump has railed against him and other black athletes who use their platform to protest racial discrimination.

The racist-in-chief has spread the false narrative that these professional athletes were disrespecting the flag and dishonoring our military by kneeling during the national anthem, even though they have stated time and time again that they were protesting America’s treatment of racial minorities.

Nobody thinks that Trump will ease up on his criticisms of athletes who kneel in protest during the national anthem, in his mind they will always be sons of bitches.

Only HUD Secretary Ben Carson thinks that Trump will ease up on his lambasting of black players who kneel during the national anthem. He told Hugh Hewitt the following:

“Well, I don’t think he has manifested as much animosity in that region lately and I think we just continue to work with him. He’ll get there.”

Earth to Uncle Tom Carson: he won’t get there. He will never get there. Nobody has any respect for an Oreo, and a sniveling coward has no sway over Trump.

Trump will continue to use race to divide the public and pander to his racist base. But the George Floyd murder has changed everything, and America has had enough of racial inequality. Trump’s racist base and support from Uncle Toms the likes of Carson won’t be enough, and he’s headed to a defeat of landslide proportions.

Outrage Over George Floyd’s Murder Will Bring Down Donald Trump

Donald Trump is a demented and doddering old racist, but I give him credit for skillfully exploiting America’s racial divide, emboldening white supremacists and Nazis with his dog whistles and thrilling his white evangelical supporters with his undisguised vitriol.

White evangelicals are full of piss and vinegar and it’s not the wise and comforting words of Jesus in the Gospels that they seek, but the vulgar and hateful words of their false messiah, Trump, that makes them cream their pants.

Trump skillfully surfed the waves of racial discord, even the killer wave of Charlottesville failed to knock him off balance. He emerged from that hateful moment in American history with support from his base not only intact but strengthened.

But the callous and cold-blooded murder of an unarmed African American, George Floyd, by four police officers changed everything. The murder recorded on a teen’s cellphone has been seen by millions, if not billions, worldwide, and every day since his brutal murder hundreds of thousands have been protesting and demanding justice for George Floyd and an end to police brutality and racism.

Americans are sick and tired of police brutality and we are sick and tired of Trump’s racist rhetoric and policy. Enough is enough and we demand an end to systemic police racism and Trump’s racist administration.

Trump Wobbles Unsteadily Down Ramp After West Point Speech

Four years ago, on June 16, 2015, Donald Trump slowly descended a golden escalator, with his trophy wife in tow, to the basement of the Trump Tower, to make his presidential announcement speech. It was a well-choreographed event, the reality show host even paid people $50 to attend and cheer his address.

On Saturday videos depicted Trump unsteadily walking down a ramp after delivering a speech to the graduating class at West Point. The last four years of wreaking havoc on America has taken a physical toll on the septuagenarian, it takes all his focus not to tumble as he balances his immense girth as he walks down a ramp.

The stable genius was furious at the ridicule of pundits and late-night comics who saw the video exposing his decrepit physical state. He tweeted:

“The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is ‘fall’ for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!”

Trump can descend an escalator and maintain a modicum of grace, but walking down stairs is an ordeal. He should avoid stairs whenever possible and use a walker to get around. But the short-fingered vulgarian is too vain to acknowledge his physical infirmities and he’d rather be dead than be forced to cry out: I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up.

It’s time to kick this doddering old geezer to the curb, he’s physically, mentally, ethically, and intellectually unfit to be the President of the United States.
