What is Racism?
“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.” Donald TrumpThe Republicans at first thought it was fun at furst, His outrageousness and the things he was saying, was what they were thinking but being career politicians have learned to use a filter. Every political observer figured the the Donald would be bored after a few weeks on the campaign and head back home and start looking for wife number four.
Then something crazy started to happen. It seemd like the crazier he talked the more he was rising in the polls of the Republican primary. The Republican base had been sick of a couple things and it seemed like Mr. Trump was speaking right to them.
The R base was upset from feeling the pain of Republcian austerity policies that have directly made their lives worse. The problem though, is the base did not realize that the tough talking elected Republicans were not their friends. The establishment though has been playing this game for a long time and they knew that they need to keep the chickens happy if they want to keep guarding the hen house. This is when Richard Nixon and the R insiders, came up with the Southern Strategy to win the south.
Since then they have used the politcs of resentment and division successfully over and over. Until this election cycle. Donald Trump came on the scene, and the racism has been ratched up to 11.
This is NOT an isolated incident.
African Americans are not allowed in Trump rally's. Trumps supporters hear this:
Then do this:
Now that they made it ok to do this at his rally's it is starting to trickle down! It allows thugs and racists like Colin "14/88" Flaherty to be empowered If you have not heard of Flaherty count yourself lucky.
He is one of the people that made up the story of the Knockout game to help make white America afraid of our African American brothers and sisters. He also wrote a book telling anyone who was foolish enough to read it that if you see a black male around.....be very afraid because he is coming to get you
The book however must be good because Alex Jones loves it!
Alex Jones: “Brilliant. Could not put it down.”
But wait there is more! The thrum of racism is getting so loud that people have to go extreme if they want to be heard. Flaherty is now attacking Professor Goldrick Rab. Professor Goldrick-Rab made the mistake of criticizing the attacks on piblic education in Wisconsin by Scott Walker. The loss of tenure topped with everything else that has happened in WI and Ms. Goldrick-Rab was poached out of UW-Madison by Temple University!
Flaherty is now taking his shot at her to punish her for speaking up. He posted this stupid racist disgusting video tonight.
Of course these kind of hate filled, screeds brings out the best of the Republican party! Comments like this from Republicans towards Democrats are commonplace,
