Ego maniacs have similar ways of subjugating their minions, supporters and worshipers. Caesar arrives!
The American conservative "king" arrives.
And, the minions (supporter and worshipers) waited hours. The crowd fell well shy of Trumps boasts, but offer ample zeal and camera opportunities.
Last night Rachel Maddow reported as the Trump oozfest moved to its end.
Bernie Sanders still winning the size contest Donald Trump was able to book a very large venue and draw a decent-sized crowd to his Alabama rally, but he didn't attract a larger gathering than Bernie Sanders did twice on his recent visit to the West Coast.More on why Trump went to Alabama: http://on.msnbc.com/1fy89Y2__________________________________The Rachel Maddow Show airs weeknights at 9pm ETPosted by The Rachel Maddow Show on Saturday, August 22, 2015
We are not certain teh following was part of the Alabama ozzfest, but we are sure of what we hear and it was recorded at a Trump event.
The New York Times reported on the event with comment related to the crowd size falling well shy of forecast (or, should I say Trump carnival barking claim), but high on zeal.
....Still, others said they had plenty of advice for the man they regularly identified in conversation as “Mr. Trump.”“Hopefully, he’s going to sit there and say, ‘When I become elected president, what we’re going to do is we’re going to make the border a vacation spot, it’s going to cost you $25 for a permit, and then you get $50 for every confirmed kill,’ ” said Jim Sherota, 53, who works for a landscaping company. “That’d be one nice thing.”
It seems some on the Right see Trump as a White Horse Crusader who will accommodate conservative racism, bigotry while providing a guide post for white nationalism (and murder?). One has to wonder if the "zeal filled' reveler from the Times article would place a $35 bounty on 'killed' young immigrants. Or, would the guy pay a full $50 for young dead young immigrant.
The event met expectations on the Left while offering Trump a foot in the US South (the GOP apple field). The venue was a sure fired way of garnering a large crowd if a candidate bases his campaign on (first) race and white nationalism. I should add white nationalism with a flair for anxiety to take humans out at the border.
Caesar must remember, there are those in his party will turn against him once he fails to fade away. The GOP is not about support for mavericks their uber wealthy oligarchs cannot control. Trump would have little to no need for political contribution, thus he would exist the anti-archetypal GOP candidates. And, yes some on the Right do not forget his past affinity for the Democrat Donkey.
Et Tu Bruti!
Update: It seems after a bit of digging the voice among Donald Trump's southern stratrgy swing actually was an Alabama "rebel yell" from the less than half filled Mobile Stadium.
Contemptor ran is running a piece (white supremacy rally?)that has tied the knot for my inquisitiveness and uncertainty of teh "White Power" Yell last night or at a previous event. The real question is will anyone in media question Trump about his thoughts on attracting such a guttural element of US society.
