As Trumps World Turns: White Nationalism, Racism, Trumpism

As Facebook bans white supremacists posts... this one is your call.

Twenty-two seconds of pure malarkey. And Trump knows it.

On the day, Trump signed his nation emergency declaration he made this comment: “People hate the word ‘invasion,’ but that’s what it is ."

Just before the New Zealand shooting and killings, the shooter posted a comment to social media: " show the invaders that our lands will never be their lands.”

The terrorists also left a 74-page "(nut case rambling) manifesto.   The manifesto is laced with white supremacist ramblings ad mention of Trump.  To advance our point about white supremacy, the New Zealand terrorists also flashed an increasingly common white power signed while standing handcuffed for his first court appearance.

Of course, we can find non-racist flashes of the hijacked "OK" signal, but Is there any doubt why the New Zealand racists flashed the sign?

On March 23, 2019, The Hill posted a piece regarding the increase in hate cities in cities where Trump held or holds rallies. Herewith is an excerpt from the piece.
United States counties where President Trump hosted a campaign rally in 2016 saw a 226 percent increase in reported hate crimes compared to similar counties that did not host one, an analysis released by The Washington Post has revealed. 
The analysis, which was published on Friday, was conducted by Ayal Feinberg, a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of North Texas, and Regina Branton and Valerie Martinez-Ebers, two political science professors at the university. 
They said their research sought to explain how some of Trump’s rhetoric "may encourage hate crimes."
OK, so we have Trump spewing hatred at rallies along with a hate crime rise in the host cities. What is the rational mind to think?

In 2018 the Southern Poverty Law Center Hate Crime Map 2018. The map is interactive and lends to viewing changes in hate crimes not only via years 2000 - 2018, it facilities viewing of how states are showing increased cases. 

Your call.......

As Trump's World Turns: A Smorgasbord Of Social Regression

Image may contain: text Reality... and a potential nation killer.

While there are many times when I would prefer Rachel Maddow's "A" Block segment would run a few minutes less in length, we must appreciate the scope and breadth of information from her research team and her personal acumen at pacing the final "GO" presentation details to her work/broadcast.

In late May, Maddow broadcast segment with former INTEL chief JIM Clapper on Russia's interference in the 2016 elections. Interference which swung an election win to Trump. Yes, many Americans bit on the anti- Hillary campaign from the RNC and Russia.

Clapper and Maddow (9:35 minutes- Skip through maybe)

Before we move on, take a peep at the meme we used to open this piece.   Ugly and sad, eh?

OK, so what did we elect.  In addition to total incompetence across the full breadth of his administration the most noted aspect of Trumpism is lying and political malfeasance.

Jim Jordan, noted conservative "GOP agenda nasty man" attempts to attack the much more intellectually gifted and professional Rob Rosenstein in his role in the Mueller investigation on head learns to avoid absence of fact" information from Sean Hannity.

"An absence of Facts" quick fact check on the nation's number one suffer from Lack-of-fact-itis (AKA Chronic Liar's Disease).

And a smorgasbord topping: Racism.

Republicans have long leveraged racial politics via their well known and effective Southern Strategy. A strategy which dates back to Richard Nixon and Kevin Phillips and made popular via Ronald Reagan and Lee Atwater. 

While we are finding many instances of overt racism in the era of Trump, we will end this smorgasbord piece with a few instances of whites gone mad with racism.

June 30th in Rockland County, New York.

Racist white woman attacks a car of a family with origins in Mexico. You will move a voice from the car emanates with the sound of very good English.

Police called on ‘suspicious’ Black family enjoying meal at Subway

Racist steps in front of an Arab family and tells them to "go back to their country."
