TRUMP Credo: "If you tell the lie enough, it becomes truth?" Fact Checker Dot Org



Donald Trump it seems will spend the next four years traveling around the country delivering rally speeches.  His current mission is to feed his ego while whipping white people into celebrity worshipping frenzies via weekly appearances. As is the case with any rally, speech, comment, and oratory are necessary. Before we move into one of Trump's latest insults to the black community and his disregard for decency among his supporters let's remind of a key point from Politifact.

While the African-American vote was down from 2012 with Trump securing more votes than Romney (et. al. less than 14% in each election), Trump can not accurately depict the black vote as not showing up. Of course, he can claim the flawed statistic (lie) with his white supporters (and the very visible black guy and two women in the video), but the reality is, Trump continues his lie campaign. "If you tell the lie enough, it becomes truth?"

How about this one:


Trump has stated on multiple occasions within the past two weeks, that his supporters should be happy about the "good thing" associated with his false claim of "African-Americans stayed home."

Here is his latest (as promised above). Note the African-America guy (and ladies neatly placed behind Trump). The guy is over exuberant about Trump's vote comments, yet even he ceased his Trump "woodie" as Trump stated the black vote "staying home" was a good thing.


Trump's remarks.

Chicago Tribune 

Thursday's rally in Hershey, Pennsylvania, found the president-elect calling for the mostly white crowd to cheer for African-Americans who were "smart" to heed his message and therefore "didn't come out to vote" for his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. 
"That was the big thing, so thank you to the African-American community," Trump said. 
Trump repeatedly campaigned there, drawing some of the largest and loudest crowds of the campaign. He won the state by less than 1 percentage point, giving him a vital 20 electoral college votes.

The New York Times reaches into an American closet!....


..and how the closet has ghost of years past...and not just in the South!


avernise  and Jeff Zeleny (contributing writer) of the New York Times published a screed that many will be shunned, others will read with disgust, and still others will read with recognition of reality accompanied by "just don't mention it" like Americana.  The headline reads as follows.


"4 Years Later, Race Is Still Issue for Some Voters"

If you read our op-eds and comment from time to time, you know our thoughts on the headline.  There is little need to dwell there, but there is relevance in the New York Times article.  Relevance in the irrefutable reality of America as a nation very much still suffering from deep-rooted racism. Rather than editorialize on the Tavernise article, allow me to post specific passages for your edification.

First allow a qualifier.  The demographics of the piece is small town Ohio (a critical re-election State for President Obama).  Another demographic is the heavily mining, blue-collar and saturated labor supportive denizens of Steubenville, Ohio.

Excerpts....

A president's previously stated perspective on race and his election.

“I never bought into the notion that by electing me, somehow we were entering into a post-racial period,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with Rolling Stone.
“I’ve seen in my own lifetime how racial attitudes have changed and improved, and anybody who suggests that they haven’t isn’t paying attention or is trying to make a rhetorical point,” he said. “Because we all see it every day, and me being in this Oval Office is a testimony to changes that have been taking place.”

This is the land of die-hard Democrats — mill workers, coal miners and union members. They have voted party line for generations, forming a reliable constituency for just about any Democrat who decides to run for office.
