The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump's "Dog Whistle" Attack On Black Protesters And Sympathizers

If you are bothered to the core about professional football players, teams and owners countering Trump's attack on the business enterprise, spend a few minutes on this post.  

We open with blanket comment. 
"If you think Trump's attack on black football players is truly regarding respect for the US Flag, you are a prime candidate for nation killing mind-shaping."
CNN's Jake Tapper starts our piece.

Now follow the utter shame of a so-called conservative pastor and his rhetoric regarding American's exercising their First Amendment rights to speak, opine and protest. As you watch and listen, be reminded this is a so-called religious leader.

Robert Jeffress: "There is a better way to protest social injustice ... for example, a few years ago, you had those Oregon Christian bakers who were almost driven into bankruptcy for practicing their faith. That's injustice."

Trump's mind-shaping works for some Americans. The timing and strategic value of his appearing before a 99% white (older) audience in the national number three red state (Alabama) shouldn't surprise anyone. Is it necessary to make the point, Trump doesn't make those remarks in New York City, Los Angeles nor Oakland? 

What is surprising is the level and scope of how effective Trump drills his form of racism and white privilege leverage into the minds of the gullible.   Trump doesn't wear a white hood and robe nor does he appear at Ku Klux Klan (or white supremacists) events as did his father, but never underestimate the power of the communicator's impact on the minds of masses of gullible people. Hence, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels, and their reign in 1929 - 1945 Germany. 

Watch, read and listen as one football fan shows the exact mental state Trump wishes to impart to his minions.  

The Root via The Raw Story

“Sharon” from Williamstown, N.J.
“I’m a big huge football fan but I can’t watch it anymore because it brings tears to my eyes,” Sharon explained, Raw Story reports. “It’s too painful so I can’t do that.”

According to Sharon, the flag “is a symbol of imperfect people in an imperfect country always trying to do the right thing.” 
“It’s just shameful and it hurts me to see people taking a knee when we are supposed to be joyful about living in this country,” she said. “After I saw what happened [with players kneeling during the anthem], I tried to watch it and I just couldn’t because I just kept crying.”

And then, Sharon broke down into a mound of pudding and released the whitest tears.

“I just don’t understand why people do these things,” she sniffled. “I miss my Monday nights. I’m an addict. I have two televisions on watching two different timezones. I’m crazy about football but I just can’t take the pain.” 
“It hurts… too much,” Sharon concluded. 
You know what else hurts, Sharon? Racism. You know what else hurts, Sharon? Watching video of Tamir Rice being gunned down in the street by a cop so reckless he could barely get out of the car before he fired bullets into the 12-year-old. You know what else hurts, Sharon? Watching Eric Garner plead with police to get the fuck off of him because he couldn’t breathe—for the crime of selling loosies. With all due respect, Sharon—and all the other Sharons that still think this protest is about the flag or the national anthem—get the fuck over it, snowflake.


From the distraught former football fan who suffers from a case of chronic Trumpism to Fox News's single liberal personality: Shepard Smith.


You are free to think as you please, form your opinions, and you are also free to avail your mind to the nefarious manifestations of a racist president, but also recognize the inherent dangers bundled in Trump.

Trump: Racist? Pocahontas, 100 Days, Russia

Image result for trump racist picsWhen I hear people say Trump is not a racist, the words simply roll off like raindrops on a well-waxed automobile. Donald Trump is a racist of the worse sort. The elitist schmuck who spends his entire life maintaining a safe distance from most everyday Americans and he also maintains a safe distance from any person of color who was not, or is not, a knee-crawling and groveling money servant.

Trump's background regarding race is well documented. His settlement of a New York State housing discrimination lawsuit is enough evidence for most to accept Trump's racism. Out of court settlement is a validation of guilt the defendant doesn't want to run through the legal system. During my days in corporate human resources, we called it; "Go away money."

During the 2016 campaign revelation of comments regarding his failing casinos apparently included disparaging remarks of black accountant employees.
John O’Donnell, who was president of the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino and later wrote a memoir about his experience, said Trump blamed financial difficulties partly on African American accountants. 
I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and at Trump Plaza — black guys counting my money!” O’Donnell’s book quoted Trump as saying. “I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. Those are the kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else.  

Image result for trump racist picsTrump is no different than the hordes if white nationalists and neo-nazis who flocked to polling places last November to cast their "whites only vote." As is always the case. Trump's biases against non-inner circle blacks are accompanied by racism against Native Americans, and quite probably Asian people. During that 2016 campaign, Trump spoke with a great deal of insensitive and racism as he mocked the ancestry of Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren.  

Wouldn't you know Trump paid scant, if any, attention to the uproar from previous characterizations of Warren via the native American slur or stereotype: "Pocahontas." How pathetic of a US President to us the word "Pocahontas" As a slur? Didn't Hillary Clinton once mention the word "deplorable?"

How about a comment from a true intellectual who happens to be a liberal? Racism and ignorance is a true sickness and everyone in the crowd who cheered with Trump's racial overtones at today's NRA gun fest are, in fact, deplorable(s).

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, The Last Word, again talks "Pocahontas. (must view). The real Pocahontas is a story for humankind and well beyond the decency of Trump deplorable.

Before we move to other slices of the pie.

Two members of alt-right accused of making white supremacist hand signs in White House after receiving press passes

The Independent  April 29, 2017

Two members of alt-right accused of making white supremacist hand signs in White House after receiving press passes.

Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House.

Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room. In the photo, they are making a hand sign that can be used to signify “white power.”

“Just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House,” Fusion senior reporter Emma Roller tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the picture.

A Nation Awash In Trumpism

Let start with a very quick look and listen to what I consider the archetypal Trump supporter. No, the woman you are about to hear (for only 50 seconds) isn't Michelle Bachmann, but she obviously suffers from Chronic hatred of our president. As I viewed her portion of the CNN panel, My mind offered comforting thoughts about how my social and political views are diametrically opposite her clear hatred.

Demeanor aside, the key reason or our focus on the bundle of hatred in blue is her assertion of a lying president and her obvious devotion to a Trump.  She is the perfect sycophant as she not only implies she buys Trump hook, line, and sinker, she states with non-verbals how Trumps speaks for a large portion of conservative voters. 
The angst filled CNN panelist is either overcome with celebrity worship, paid for her on camera angst, or she has social issues that include constant rightwing media and a tendency o never visit fact-checkers. Actually, I strongly suspect  the panelist is inflicted with all conditions.

Politifact (Tampa Bay Times Fact - Checker)

Find Trumps specific rating reviews, here.

The irate panelist pointed to her head and says, he speaks for us.  It doesn't take much to realize Trumps bigoted and racism is not only popular among his viewers, some admit he speaks their core beliefs.  

A friend of the TPI and founder of AddcitingInfo posted a comment on Facebook that sheds a telling light on the irate panelists (group speak) comments.

Matthew Desmond
So far Donald J. Trump has attacked ALL Mexicans (not just immigrants), black people (by encouraging his supporters to attack a ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬supporter, and then defending it), women (through Megyn Kelly), veterans and POWs (by attacking John McCain for his service), disabled people (by mocking a disabled reporter and then doubling down on it), and every single member of the world's second largest religion (Islam).

End Desmond comment.


"I am doing good for the Muslims."  What is it about those words remind so much of the image to the left above? Trump sat with CNN's Trump facilitator, Don Lemon, during a segment in which he gave a response other utter words that truly bring back horrific memories of the evils demagogues eventually perpetrated against the European and Russian Jews.

Reaction to Trumps remarks beyond his seething sycophants hasn't been positive.  Foreign leaders have commented about  his bigoted remarks. From Britain's Prime Minister to the recent cancellation of his planned trip to Israel, reactions have been consistent and disdainful. 

International reaction pales compared to reactions from the preponderance of US media.  Of particular note is Fox New's Chief Bloviator, Bill O'Reilly,  hosting segments with Trump and noted anti-Obama haters to entertain his audience. Bill O'Reilly recently reached his huge cable news (conservative audience) by booking Trump for a segment with no serious nor constructive purpose. If Trump isn't inclined to listen to anyone on his staff who might (at great risk) suggest he tone down his rhetoric, why would he listen to O'Reilly's cautions? Therefore, the following O'Reilly segment is mere fodder for his viewers.

O'Reilly Vs Trump

Did O'Reilly seriously try to quell fervent demagoguery from Stuart Varney and Lou Dobbs? While the segment was good for Fox viewers, it was as fruitless as pouring expecting US conservatives to embrace diversity. Obama haters simply are not people who lend themselves to rational thought and subsequent behavior. Let's fail to acknowledgment seven years of hate-laced yelling, desk-beating,  and on-air emotional breakdowns helped to pave a path for Trumpism.

We will end with a couple of anecdotal items.  Trump recently quoted outlandish survey data while speaking with a host on CNN.  Closer Scrtunity via Media Matters shows the survey was from a ridiculous poll from Frank Gaffney. 

Harrison Ford has commented about Trumps comments about Trumps use of a movie characters as a prop for his carnival barking facade of the tough guy. We are seeing more and more right wing use of fictional movie characters and creative scripts as desired models for a president. 
Donald Trump mocked by actor Harrison Ford Actor Harrison Ford mocks Republican front-runner Donald J. Trump for saying Ford "stood up for America" in his role as the US President in the 1997 movie Air Force One:Posted by Channel 4 News on Wednesday, December 9, 2015
Do you recall Joe Scarborough's assessment that President Obama would be better to pattern his leadership after characters in the showtime series: Homeland?
Joe Scarborough Peter Quinn (Homeland) on why the West does not have the will to win the war against Terror. Scarborough goes full "Quinn."

I suppose US conservatism really does live in a fantasy world. The problem is, their regressive ideology and their devotion of creative script writers is danger to the greater society (you and me.) StumbleUpon
