North Korea Accuses Trump Administration of Racism

 A couple of former Trump employees agree

During last weeks Michael Cohen House Committee Hearing, Cohen made this statement:

As clear as the accumulation of an early morning snow storm. As horrible as Trump stating "there were fine people on both sides" as the nation moved away from its most visible and "in-your-face" exhibition of Anti-Semitism and racism since the 1940s: Charlottesville, VA.  The evidence is mounting, America elected its most racist President since Andrew Johnson and Andrew Jackson.

Trump and his White House communications operatives have proclaimed Trump as non-racists since taking office. Despite years of evidence of overt racism associated with the Trump family and reports of Trump disdain for blacks handling his casino money, we have turned away from the ugly reality.

Trump is a stock and barrel racist of the most heinous sort. One who could work to move some people away from both closet and overt racist acts; yet he refrains. US Presidents not only have that social power, they, in recent past US History, have spoken out against racism and anti-Semitism.

As Trump's racial facade fades into the reality of a racist in the White House, we are seeing some of his former associates speaking frankly when asked the direct questions.

Here is such an example. The CNN segment if about 5 minutes in duration, but don't forget information is valuable and often comes with a willingness to expend tie and effort.
After Trump's recent international flow with the dictator of North Korea (AKA Chairman Kim via Trump), isn't it noteworthy North Korea has latched onto Trump's leadership as a conduit to a more racist US? Newsweek linked, here.

If you didn't visit the link, consider.....

“White Paper on Human Rights Violations in the U.S. in 2017,” issued by the Institute of International Studies in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“Racial discrimination and misanthropy are serious maladies inherent to the social system of the U.S., and they have been aggravated since Trump took office,” the paper read. “The racial violence that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12 is a typical example of the acme of the current administration’s policy of racism.”
Yes, the white paper was developed by the most repressive regime on Earth, but should any US Administration lends itself to such criticism? North Korea has been a US adversary for decades. What is it about the current administration which allows such a regime to target the US? I offer Donald J. Trump is that national weakness. 

The real tragedy?  Ninety-percent of Republicans support Trump to the letter and well over 80 percent of conservative support Trump. Now, what does all of that say about American conservatives and conservatism?

US Conservatism's Love of Dictators From A Trump. Kim Jong Un, and Russia Perspective (Video)

It is one of those days when sitting and developing a piece for the page, just isn't going to take place.  

Enjoy the social media reports and whatever you do, visit the MSNBC links towards the bottom of the age  The On Assignment segments with Richard Engel are award-winning journalism in my opinion.

First, let's visit with a couple of social media posts.
While I am enjoying a non-writing day, I cannot help but post a few additional items I viewed last night on MSNBC. If you viewed the segments from the On Assignment show you have no need to proceed.

The first segment relates to a nascent phenomenon of US conservatives literally loving the Russian society. Despite being one of the most repressive nations across the globe, US conservatives have latched onto Putin; Russia as surely as they continue to moniker Ronald Reagan as one of the nation's great presidents. Ronald Reagan was a facade of how US conservatives wish their world to exist. While the following segment doesn't touch upon Reagan's contributions to a rebirth of US racism (post the 1960s and ear 1970s.

From his overt affinity for Bob Jones University (with all known racist policies) through his part in advancing the GOP's successful Southern Strategy, and his outright disgusting handling of early AIDS cases, Reagan was the epitome of US social regression.  And, the GOP still to this day loves his being and legacy.  

Alas, the following segment doesn't visit Reagan's social regression beyond touching on Russia's anti-LGBT policies. As you view what follows, think about the dangerous abyss to which Trump has us all standing on the precipice and leaning over the edge.

Shameful isn't it?

How about some dessert?
