of us in America are marching to the sound of a Pied Piper; a piper
that promotes division, a piper that mimics a bully, a piper that
desires social digression. Now that Americans, left of conservatism,
have had just about enough of the Republican’s 1950’s
rhetoric and are confronting the racist dog-whistles of New York
business mogul Donald Trump, even the mainstream media cannot deny
the deluded analysis of the Trump effect.
all watched the violent confrontations between white supporters of
Donald Trump and a racially diverse band of protestors opposing the
Trump candidacy. The face-to-face battles are timid compared to the
1960’s. Listening to my diverse group of news sources, as if on
cue, press pundits and aficionados are dancing around the 800-pound
gorilla in the room—race—to offer the general populace of
America a reason for the confrontations. We hear the often repeated
refrain of “anger over the economy that Americans—on
both sides—are feeling.” Simply stated: That
reasoning is diversionary garbage.
false equivalency of the people’s “anger” over the
state of the economy with unveiled racism is maddening to me. Most
have gotten voluntary amnesia, but Donald Trump’s campaign for
President has captured the country’s attention with his high
profile, unabashed attack on political correctness.
conservatives have bemoaned having to be “PC” for some
years now. They’ve been angry about the so-called curtailment
of their First Amendment right to free speech. They claim the country
has taken a “left turn” onto the road of political
correctness. White social conservatives have grieved about being
chided for disrespectful, demeaning and insulting language that they
so freely used in their recent collective memories. But then things
with the era of political correctness, came the boom and bust of the
American economy; an injustice against Americans across all
demographics who lost substantial wealth and assets when Wall Street
(led by the Bush Administration) raped the nation’s working
class. Even though people of color suffered proportionally greater
losses, white Americans couldn’t believe that they too, would
get screwed by the con men in suits. White America lost years of the
good life, and they’re fighting mad about it. They need
use of anger is but a cover for the real sentiment of not being able
to be the up-front, open racists they want to be. White people with
great racial prejudices want an excuse to be racists without being
revealed as racists. What’s sad is that their anti-American
behaviors are so clearly evident. To divert our attention from the
Trump pied piper’s racist rhetoric, media places reactions to
his demagoguery on protestors. Well, that is a vicious
American norm. Blaming the victim is what this country does well,
and does best.
Political analyst and Vice Chair of Voter Registration and Participation at the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile stated that Donald Trump is
just saying what’s been said on talk radio for the last two
decades. Just because you have the right to disrespect someone else,
ask yourself: Why would you? Insults are solely designed to gain a
superior posture over someone else. That’s pretty much the
essence of the Tea Party’s “Take Our Country Back”
campaign of the Tea Party that spawned in time for the 2010 election.
candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio, blamed professional protesters
for disrupting Trump rallies, as opposed to placing the real burden
of guilt on the originator of hate-filled rhetoric—Donald
Trump. For the record, professional protestors aren’t the only
ones hitting back against Donald Trump. There are mounting numbers of
student groups who are organizing against xenophobia and Trumps’
pundit Ann Coulter
that "left-wing fascists violently shut down a peaceful Trump
rally last night & Cruz + the entire media took the animals'
side.” These so-called political analysts leave out the reason
people are protesting Trump to begin with! His words (though
elementary in grammatical construction) are vitriolic at their base.
quotes are viral (not in the sense of social contagion, but in the
sense of social toxicity), and have thrown an already-infected sector
of the country into relapse: undercover racists. You see, I’ve
come to learn that most white Americans have a high pre-disposition
to racist behaviors. Most do not want to be exposed. They’re
willing to maintain politically correctness, but once the wafer thin
firewall’s breach, out with the civility and in with the real
face of America!
tactic of diverting the public’s attention away from his
demonic behavior is what Trump does second best. What he does
best is grade-school name-calling. He is now placing the onus of
disruptive protestors on Sen. Bernie Sanders. In addition to misusing
the Senator’s “Socialist” label as yet another
misleading Trump tactic. Trump’s followers see it, but they
want what they want so bad—and believe that they’re
entitled to it—that they ignore facts. Always remember the
Birther Movement (the myth around Obama’s birth certificate),
if you need to be reminded of a Trump-led, manufactured controversy.
what’s insane to me is that anyone could give credence to the
premise that Sen. Bernie Sanders is the cause of violence at Donald
Trump’s event, when Trump encourages his supporters to “punch
‘em in the face.”
mainstream media—namely ABC News—has given voice to this
assertion! Donald Trump in Cleveland said, “They come from
Bernie’s crowd!” with no evidence of such an allegation;
and with no evidence, wouldn’t that make Trump a liar? Donald
Trump has even called Sen. Sanders a Communist in the past.
And, no, Sanders is not a Communist…just another
Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Donald Trump said of anti-Trump protestors,
“Knock the crap out of him…I’ll pay the legal
bills.” Some Republicans have been quoted as framing this
election as “the most fun election in a long time!”
must understand that Republicans—mainstream or otherwise—want
to maintain white superiority. That’s what their divisive,
imperialist policies are all about. Rescinding the Voting Rights
Act, prolonging stagnant wages, obliterating gun control laws and
gerrymandering are all intended to keep power and control in the
hands of white males, in anticipation of the day they get “their
Cruz said that “with a Clinton victory, we [Republicans] would
lose the Supreme Court for a generation,” while ignoring that
Progressives and Democrats have already been on the losing
side of a Conservative-leaning Supreme Court for over a
generation…that’s just how America works, right? Now,
the media’s entertaining opinion that Trump’s First
Amendment rights are being infringed upon. What absurdity!
can we in this country, without fault or fail, embrace the First
Amendment when it is used as a tool of social and racial division?
For example, the 1919 Supreme Court ruled that if there’s no
fire in a crowded theater, you can’t holler fire in a crowded
theater. So, not all speech is free. Trump told Univision Journalist
Jorge Ramos to “Get out of my country.” “Go back to
Univision.” Trump knew that Ramos is an American citizen, but
his white supremacy concept of “my way or no way (like the
current Republican-led Congress) has got to end. Donald the pied
piper’s Las Vegas intimation in February: “I’d like
to punch him in the face,” needs to come with consequences.
His actions fall arguably short of a conspiracy and the Feds seem to
love using that conspiracy. Trump needs to pay full price for his
rabble rousing, riot-inciting, hate-mongering free speech.
make the unequivocal statement and stand that Donald Trump is not
only racist, but the worst kind of racist—one with stacks of
money. New York Governor Bill DiBlasio and Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge
flat out called Trump a racist…It’s about damned time!
The Tea Party, the Birther Movement, the anti-immigration Minutemen
craze are all elements within the Republican Party. All call for
some degree of separation, division or elimination of someone else’s
civil liberties. It’s time to blow the whistle on the pied
piper’s pipe to silence the delusional trumpets.
