When Will Reince Priebus Offer Full Support of Trump's Bigotry?

The RNC is noticeably quiet about Trumps bigoted and racist demagoguery.

Notice Trump and his campaign (and Super Pac) talking heads and the words "these people."

The Hill and other media are reporting on a Trump weekend Tweet.  It seems that childish Tweeter freak candidate must live on 'dark' right-wing twitter pages. Check out his latest Joseph Goebbels like propaganda.

The message immediately took off on the social media platform, with thousands of people retweeting it and liking it within an hour. But many also lashed out angrily against the real estate mogul, calling Trump a racist and questioning the veracity of the stats.
Indeed, an initial search to confirm the numbers couldn’t turn up a “Crime Statistic Bureau” in San Francisco.
However, the percentages do, in some ways, align with Department of Justice (DOJ) findings from several years ago. A DOJ study released in 2011 reported that 93 percent of black homicides were committed by other blacks between 1980 and 2008.
In 2014, that figure was roughly 90 percent in 2014, according to the latest DOJ numbers.
The category tweeted out by Trump that doesn't fit with DOJ statistics is “Whites Killed by Whites,” which Trump’s tweet indicated was 16 percent.
According to the department’s 2011 report, 84 percent of white homicides were committed by whites between 1980 and 2008. That number was 82 percent in 2014.

If you think our painting Trump as the supreme propagandist who is successfully drawing sycophant viewers comparable to the Third Reich the mid-1930s, check out a few quotes from Hitler's Communications and Propaganda Director Goebbels.

“Think of the press as a great keyboard 
on which the government can play.” 
― Joseph Goebbels

“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” 
― Joseph Goebbels
“Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct. I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. I speak differently in the provinces than I do in Berlin, and when I speak in Bayreuth, I say different things than I say in the Pharus Hall. That is a matter of practice, not of theory. We do not want to be a movement of a few straw brains, but rather a movement that can conquer the broad masses. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths.” 
― Joseph Goebbels
“We shall go down in history as the greatest statesmen of all time,or as the greatest criminals” 
― Joseph Goebbels

The nation went through a period of contemptuous reaction to mentions of Adolf Hitler and his Third Reich. It is interesting to watch diminution of criticism of acts that very much resembles Europe's genocidal past. Media hosts are no longer interrupting guests who speak of Hitler's Brown Shirts and the Holocaust. Conversely, it is intriguing to watch as history repeats itself via Trump without equalizing heightened condemnation from the American public. Moreover, we are not hearing any condemnation for Reince Priebus's RNC, and hearing very little from the GOP and it heard of remaining presidential prospects.

UPDATE: Little Green Footballs located the source of Trumps Tweet data. Trump has some seriously disgusting reading habits.

Vox takes the Trump meme to an even deep level and a level that matches the images and text above. Vox
