    Trump Can’t Just Walk Away From ‘Send Her Back’

    Trump Can’t Just Walk Away From ‘Send Her Back’


    There's a pattern.

    7/19/19

    On Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted to condemn Trump for “racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.” The president stood his ground. A day later, he presided over an unsettling and ominous political rally in North Carolina during which the crowd started chanting “send her back” after he singled out Representative Ilhan Omar, a Democrat and a Somali immigrant, as unpatriotic. Trump tweeted this week that “I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!” If Trump’s racism isn’t in his bones, then it’s likely to be found in his heart because he’s been awash in it for decades. Consider:

    -- Trump and his father, Fred, ran a housing business that the Justice Department censured in 1973 for discriminating against prospective tenants of color.

    -- Jack O’Donnell, a senior executive at Trump’s Atlantic City casinos during the late 1980s, described Trump as someone whose “prejudices didn’t stop at the color of one’s skin. Everyone was subject to judgment. It could be their ethnicity, their gender, their religion. It could be their social ‘caste.’”

    -- Trump’s first wife, Ivana, told her lawyer during their divorce that Trump kept a copy of Hitler’s collected speeches by his bedside in Trump Tower. When a reporter questioned Trump about the book in 1990, he balked and then said it was a gift.

    -- Trump embraced birtherism in 2011 and falsely asserted that President Barack Obama was born overseas and had forged his birth certificate.

    -- While the Trump University lawsuit was being litigated, Trump publicly claimed one of the judges hearing the case, Gonzalo Curiel, was biased because of his Mexican heritage. Curiel was born in the U.S.

    -- Trump has often been reluctant to distance himself from white supremacists like the former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.

    -- Trump gave Steve Bannon, a guiding force at Breitbart News, the tribune of white nationalism, a senior role in his 2016 presidential campaign and in his White House.

    -- Trump has unapologetically retweeted white nationalists, and for years has praised himself and others as being the successful beneficiaries of “good genes.”

    -- Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, testified before Congress earlier this year that “Mr. Trump is a racist.” He also recalled a trip with Trump: “While we were once driving through a struggling neighborhood in Chicago, he commented that only black people could live that way. He told me that black people would never vote for him because they were too stupid.”

    -- In White House meetings, Trump has inveighed against allowing immigrants from “****hole countries” into the U.S. — noting that, unlike residents of Norway, Haitians all had AIDS and Nigerians lived in “huts.”

    -- In the wake of the Charlottesville marches in 2017, Trump famously couldn’t bring himself to condemn the neo-Nazis who had taken part. Instead, he criticized the “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides — on many sides.”

    The North Carolina rally is a just a taste of how craven the president is prepared to be to retake the White House. And the path he’s on will test the country’s morality, decency and ideals.
    I've thought about Trumps racism and bigotry periodically. For a while, I considered it simply as a not-so-subtle nod to whites in ruby-red southern states. The strongholds of uneducated rural male white voters that comprise the bulk of Trumps loyal political base. But a 30% base isn't enough for 2020. I now believe Trump has come to the conclusion that propriety be damned, he's going for it. What I mean by that is Trump implicitly believes that all whites are - at core - as racist as he is. It is a deeply suppressed belief within whites that must be liberated, and Donald will shatter political correctness norms to liberate all white voters. "Don't be afraid. Vote for me and I will protect you from those hordes of lazy and socialist "people of color" transforming this nation. I will maintain white power in America. I will send them back to the ****holes they came from. This election is for all the marbles. Wake up before it is too late! It's us against .... them." And Trumps open warfare against melting-pot America gains traction in southern North Carolina; Send them back. Send them back. Send them back.....

    And I thought I was delusional with my plans to construct a robot army and conquer the world. Welp now you've made me have to consider if I am actually sane now. I was perfectly fine knowing I wasn't. Thanks.

    I don't think he's some closet racist. Trump things most people are inferior/gross I suspect, based on his behavior. Except beautiful women who don't speak bad of him, and people who he thinks he needs to get ratings and keep power.

    Trump acts based on what gets him attention. The Brieitbarts and Alex Jones, etc., clearly showed him very high polling/ratings when these types of racist, xenophobic, hate-filled messages were offered up. Trump, unlike his less deplorable GOP running mates, happily embraced it. Now of course Brad Parscale's digital machine gives Trump all the high click topics, and the low click ones to avoid. Racism just so happens to poll well with his supporters, so he dog whistles them. Is he some racist just burning to let it all out? I really doubt that, I think he's a narcissistic con-artist, first and foremost. This is about Trump...bad mouthing people based on race, gender, etc., is simply a means to an end.
