As Trump's World Turns: A Trump Willie Horton Campaign Advertisement

How about a quick visit with Trump's campaign to frighten his base and other gullible Americans into voting GOP next Tuesday? 

The band of refugees from Central American which is moving north into Mexico offers a GOP Panic initiative compare to other campaign opportunities for the party on the right. Trump, however, adds a heightened level of racism and hatred to common GOP strategy former referred to as the Southern Strategy.

First a simple graphic.

No automatic alt text available.

Let's visit with Trump.  
Why does that Trump tweet remind of GOP strategy against Michael Dukakis back in the 1980s?

Here is one fact-check related to the subject of the racist ad. linked here.

As Trumps World Turns; Leaders Lead, Ugly Leadership Leads To An Ugly World

"...make sense"

I ran across the following post on Facebook this morning. The author of the post seems to lament Trump's lack of interest in reaching out to, or inability to reach out to, voters who may not sit as denizens of his Red hat crew.
"There are some people who, no matter what he says, agree with everything Trump says. There are others, a lot of 'others', who disagree with everything he says. Does it not make sense that he should concentrate on the ones that disagree with him and try to win them over? Isn't that what a leader does. Not just pander to those who already follow you? Leaders lead...."

The author mentions "...make sense."  I suspect the author knows full well, Trump doesn't manage himself with attention to making sense

I suggest Trump is void of any such thoughts or inclinations. He is an entertainer who derives more satisfaction from personal narcissism and applause then reaching into an empty chasm of rational thought. A place where "making sense" resides.

Herewith is an example of Trump's mindset mere hours after the nation's second hate-related gun killing of the week. Of specific interest is the second Tweet The first tweet from Rupar's feed is far too many seconds of Trump. 
While we are seeing an exponential jump on hate-related crime over the past two years, Hate crimes against Jewish people have skyrocketed.

While Trump and his handlers work to avoid pubic horrors which can be traced to Trumpism, facts a "pesky things" (as Ronald Reagan stated).

Some will say the terror emanates from both sides. Well, the assertion is only that of a seeker and promulgator of "alternative facts' (AKA lies) as a tool for deflection. The Washington DC softball practice shooting of the House Republicans team was perpetrated by a Left-wing nut case, granted. He was also a Sanders supporter, but no one can find a case of sanders exhorting his (often zany) minions to violence. No one can point to a case of Sanders encouraging violence against US media. But, Trump's allies and tweets are virtual daily exhibitions against freedom of the press/media and his rally oratory often encourages violence.

One case of Trump inspired violence which led to a court case against the perpetrator.

That sucker-punch attack led to this....

The price the attacker paid for his Trump sycophancy.  you have to wonder if Trump actually paid his legal fees are Trump promised.

Shortly after Charlottesville and the death of innocent anti-Nazi protesters, the very visible Nazi leader was found crying like a baby about the prospect of an arrest.

What a difference a day makes. Please excuse the cliche. 

 I wonder if Trump paid his legal expenses.

We find very little from the 45th President of the Untied States which: "makes sense."

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.

We remind you.....
